LeMieux Vector Balance Stirrup
 
The LeMieux Vector stirrups are a new generation of stirrup - technically advanced and lightweight, but retaining a classic style expected from LeMieux
 
Machined from aviation grade aluminium offers an impressive strength to weight ration, making them lighter than most stirrups on the market at just 419g each, whilst not compromising on stability.
 
The ergonomic footplate of the Balance Stirrup is set at 5º with a cross-track grip surface and mounted on an impact absorbing cushion layer of dynamic polymer with a 70% comression rating.  Impact and vibrations are absorbed at the point of landing when jumping which reduces the fatigue to the knee and ankle and lowers the stress on leg muscles and tendons. The embedded hardened steel pins provide maximum security of the boot.
 
The footplate is supported by a twin balance arch system that distributes the weight evenly across the base of the stirrup frame.  The apex of the frame is recessed and off-set, encouraging a 45º outward orientation which makes it easier for the rider to locate the optimum angle for the foot and regain a lost stirrup.
 
An integrated safety arm has a two-stage release system, preventing unintentional opening.  The spring loaded safety arm locks into the base of the main frame meaning that when under maximum pressure, such as landing over a fence, the rider's weight is spread evenly across the stirrup, preventing the outside dropping and flexing.  When pressure is put onto the arm of the stirrup, such as if the rider falls, the arm releases allowing the foot to come out of the stirrup and preventing it getting stuck.  The stirrup arm breakout force = 36N (equivalent to 3.62kg) in testing meaning enough resistance to stop it opening unintentionally but will safely release in the event of a rider falling

Great Find!
These deserve a review. I was wanting to get a safety stirrup to round out my safety equipment (helmet and air vest). Originally I was a little sad to switch out my MDCs - I love the weight and simplicity of them. These LeMieux's have a great mid weight to them in comparison to the MDC and my foot/leg felt super stable. Not sure if it's the spiked tread, the 5 degree angle or what, but wow these might just replace the MDCs full time.

My favorite stirrups ever
I absolutely love these for all the flatwork I do. I don't like a flimsy weightless stirrup, but I also don't like a super heavy clunky stirrup. These are just right. The spikes are sharp, but they keep your foot stable. The lever arm opens when your foot puts pressure on the outer end of the stirrup. The foot bed is nice and wide. They come in a very nice box. I got the black, and they look fantastic with my saddle.

I almost returned these
I ordered these back in February and only just got them in April, thanks covid. When I first opened the box and took them out, I was resigned to return them. The side arm opened with very little pressure. However when on the stirrup leather and in use I LOVE THEM. The spikes keep your foot secure and the comfort I get knowing that the arm will open is worth the price tag.
