"Made in Italy, the patented Tech Stirrups are made from aluminum billet and fitted with stainless blocked screws. Designed for Cross Country, the treads are treated with nano-ceramic coating, while the rings are treated with a 20 micron adonization to preserve their beauty. The treads feature a 4 degree angle to encourage proper positioning, and they are very aggressively patterned to provide grip in any weather and footing conditions. Strategically placed stirrup leather eyes provide rider comfort and assist in retrieving lost stirrups. 320 grams."
