Freejump Safety Stirrups
Over a decade ago, Freejump® began with a vision of developing highly advanced stirrups – though now they manufacture top of the range body protectors, boots, and accessories too.
Here is some information about the technology used for Freejump® products:
* AIR’S Stirrups
“The AIR’S STIRRUPS set a new standard in the world of traditional stirrups. Made of stainless steel, with a floor mounted on Air Cushion, the AIR’S stirrup comes with a complete customization of the technical choices: eye orientation and/or inclination of the floor. The upper polyamide headband is designed to trigger in case of high pressure to facilitate the release of the foot if necessary. The colours of the stickers, the floor and the elastomer are customizable for a unique look.”
* SOFT UP PRO Stirrups
“SOFT’UP PRO, praised amongst the World’s Top Riders is a single branch stirrups which combines performance, comfort, safety and simplicity. Its patented flexible outer branch made of Elastollan® helps to free the foot in case of a fall. The non-skid wide elastomer floor, the ABS shell, the high resistance spring steel monobranch guarantee a better riding experience.”
The rearward angle of the Freejump's stirrups eye is the key to a better leg's position bringing the foot's toe inwards. Apart from the funky design and many striking colours that Freejump stirrups are available in, by far the largest draw to the product is safety. The stirrups perform in a very similar way to conventional safety stirrups in that the outside branch is designed to flex outwards and/or backwards, in extreme cases snap off completely. This allows the foot to release from the stirrup when under pressure. A lot of questions Grip - If you ask riders who have taken up using Freejump's, the vast majority will comment on the sheer grip and support these stirrups provide over ordinary offerings. Freejump used technology from the downhill mountain bike industry whilst developing the grip section. Stirrup Leathers - Freejump have of created a range of single strap stirrup leathers with a single eye opening specifically to work with the stirrups, the open loop on the stirrup branch allows easy fit and removal of the leathers to and from the stirrups. The leathers do look unusual compared to standard leathers but they do include features, quite useful ones! The inside of the leather features Velcro pads which you can attach either leather faced, or rubber faced pads designed for extra grip against your saddle, helping you to keep your leg position. The combined use of Freejump Stirrups and Leathers also positions the stirrups outwards in the correct position automatically allowing quick retrieval of the stirrup should you lose it, rather than trying to flick your stirrup back outwards so you can insert your foot. I know first-hand how this helps half way round a show jumping coarse.
Freejump Stirrup Leathers
Freejump Leathers are made using an environmentally friendly allergy free vegetable tanning process for a much deeper, richer colour Freejumps product range does not stop at stirrups and leathers, their range is considered fairly small but is certainly perfectly formed. Their introduction of the Liberty Evo Boots and Liberty Chaps combination was a first for fully integrated matching boots and half chaps. This soft leather duo is designed for the utmost in fit and comfort featuring many enhancements over standard long riding boots and endorsed by many top riders all over the world. The Liberty Evo boots have many features such as a front zip and soft elasticated leather along with 3 spur positions just to name a few.
* FREEJUMP AIRBAG
“In May 2019, we acquired Oscar & Gabrielle, the pioneer brand for competition jackets compatible with airbags (Helite Zip’In airbags). Martin Fuchs started this adventure with us in July 2019, riding the legendary Grand Prix of Aix la Chapelle for the first time with the Oscar & Gabrielle jacket and Helite Zip’in Airbag. In December 2019, Martin Fuchs won the Geneva Grand Prix with the prototype of the new Freejump Airbag jacket, only a few months after becoming the new European Champion. After 8 months of R&D in collaboration with Helite, this new Freejump Airbag is the result of our dedication for innovation, and of our desire for ever greater performance, comfort and safety for riders. Each Airbag is tested individually. Inflation speed and level of protection outperform all CRITT certification tests CE EU certification 2016/425.”
* FOXY Boots
“Freejump is revolutionizing once again the equestrian products concentrating all its footwear expertise into the first boots ever designed exclusively for women, [the result of] 2 years of research and development with Olympic champion Penelope Leprevost.”
* LIBERTY ONE Boots
“The performance and [unrivalled] comfort of Freejump’s LIBERTY Shoes and Chaps validated for over 10 years by the world’s Top Riders are now serving a new generation of Riding Boots. The LIBERTY ONE is a revolution in the world of Equestrian Footwear. Made in France with the best European leather.
