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 5 degrees with a cross-track grip surface and mounted on an impact absorbing cushion layer of dynamic polymer with a 70% compression 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 45 ¼ outward orientation which makes it easier for the rider to locate the optimum angle for the foot and regain a lost stirrup.

An integrated hinged arm has a two-stage release system, preventing unintentional opening. The spring loaded 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, 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 release when needed.

Returning faulty goods

The Consumer Rights Act gives you the right to ask for a refund, repair or replacement if something you buy develops a fault. This right is limited to 30 days from the date you took ownership of the goods (this could be the date of purchase or the date the goods were delivered to you - whichever is later). After the initial 30 days, you can't demand a full refund in the first instance, but you still have the right to a repair or replacement. The retailer has one opportunity to repair or replace any goods which are of unsatisfactory quality, unfit for purpose or not as described. You can choose whether you want the goods to be repaired or replaced, but the retailer can refuse if they can show that your choice is disproportionately expensive compared with the alternative. If the attempt at a repair or replacement is unsuccessful, you can then claim a refund, or a price reduction if you wish to keep the product.

 

* The Consumers Rights Act 2015 (applicable to items bought in-store) You can only return store-bought non-faulty goods for an exchange or refund if the retailer has a returns policy. Shops are not required by law to have a returns policy.

**The Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 (applicable to distance selling)

The Consumer Contracts Regulations entitles you to key cancellation rights when you enter into contracts at a distance over the phone, online, from a catalogue. Your right to cancel an order for goods made at a distance starts from the moment you place your order and ends 14 days from the day you receive your goods. You then have a further 14 days to actually send the goods back. You should get a refund within 14 days of either the trader getting the goods back, or you providing evidence of having returned the goods (for example, a proof of postage receipt from the post office), whichever is the sooner.

Refunding the cost of delivery The retailer has to refund the basic delivery cost of getting the goods to you in the first place, so if you opted for enhanced service e.g. guaranteed next day, it only has to refund the basic cost. You must cover the cost for returning unwanted goods, unless the retailer says it will cover these costs.
