MDC Super Sport StirrupThe MDC Super Sport is the only stirrup in the World with an aluminum, sure grip tread and rubber covered flexible side hinges. At the heart of all MDC Stirrups remains the patented adjustable top that allows riders the choice of three positions: traditional, 45 degrees or 90 degrees. These options allow you to position the stirrup according to your personal preference and physical needs.The new Super Sport Stirrup from MDC features a first of its kind wide, sure grip, aluminum tread that gives the rider more traction, more stability, more comfort and more security. The tread is so low profile that it is difficult to tell if you are riding in a wide or traditional width pad. By the way, these stirrups are versatile as the wide tread can be exchanged for a traditional width tread, also in light weight aluminum. Imagine standing on the 2 narrow end of a two by four board. Now imagine standing on the 4 wide end!! You can easily see the wide surface is more comfortable.The MDC Sport Stirrups deliver more stirrup with less weight. Our wide based stirrup actually weighs less than the original MDC Intelligent Stirrup. Originally designed for Jumper / Event Riders, our tests show that everyone benefits from the new sure grip, wide base and low profile design. More Traction due to a larger, light weight aluminum tread. More Comfort by spreading the pressure on the foot over a larger area. More Stirrup = More Stability and More Security. More Traction + More Security = Greater Safety.Many riders are reporting a reduction in foot pain along with our proven reduction in ankle, knee, and hip pain.Non-slip aluminum pad is 2 1/2'' from toe to heel, traditional width aluminum pad optional.
