Has anyone ever used composite stirrups on their saddle?
I wanted to try a pair of composite stirrups on my aussie saddle because the 4 bar iron ones are so heavy and always bang me in the leg when I carry the saddle (ouch!). In searching I came across a brand called Compositi. They had what I would say regular irons (composite) that came with cool footpad colors. Also they make a wide footed stirrup called wide track reflex, it has these raised grated texture pieces that grip your boot/shoe. These are the ones I choose and I must say I LOVE them! They are so light yet sturdy and durable. The foot pad actually compresses up and down with weight so they give a little when you bear down with your weight and movement. This little feature is so comfortable. I tried them out on a 30 minute ride today and can't wait to take them on a long trail ride. I can already tell my ankles and knees will thank me. I would love to change out all of my stirrups with these.
