COMFORT AND SAFETY
The full floor, stabilized and horizontal caliper K VALL promotes muscle relaxation, improves the quality of cushioning, facilitates long-term efforts and brings a renewed pleasure.
On the bracket K VALL heel being said, the ankle finds articular game she can not have the classic stirrup. This joint capability enhances the ability to dampen the movement of horses across the lower limbs.
We recommend a horizontal use of the floor so that the heel is truly resting. However the bracket is designed to allow an inclination for riders who wish to continue to rise, lowering their heel can do.
The support bracket held on the vector by the low surface of the contact point (in contraction calf muscles) and the need for increased ankle flexion (calf muscle extension) is mechanically expensive, contradictory and makes it difficult to release
Muscular yet advocated in riding. With the bracket K VALL , muscle activity is optimized at two levels: a distribution of efforts between the back and front of the leg by alternating between contraction and muscle relaxation of the calf muscles. We gain muscular economy , which brings both comfort, ease and pleasure .
This is the arch, which by its elasticity, activates the venous return. But this elasticity is only possible if the whole foot rests. The integral floor of the stirrup K VALL provides this support to the arch and thus promotes venous return and blood circulation
In endurance rider wins an ability to stay balanced longer and with less fatigue. By improving blood circulation, the bracket K VALL provides an answer to the problems encountered cramps, pain and tingling in the feet frequent in this discipline.
Safety is a priority, so K VALL opts for simplicity and efficiency in his foot clearance system.
1 – The stirrup back was designed in order not to hinder the rider’s leg.
2 – The stirrup back separates from the yoke floor during the application of an effort.
3 – In addition, the rear stirrup leather can detach from the left side or the right side of the floor of the caliper.
The bracket K VALL offers better security :
The rear axle and rear straps automatically déclipent if dropped. The cage is broad to allow the freest foot possible. The lateral branches are indented for easier clearance of the foot. The surface is non-slip. The stirrup can get the knife.
A more stable rider falls less.
The caliper is in order.
Sometimes riders still stuck feet in conventional calipers.
The suspension triangle of the bracket K VALL stabilizes the rider’s leg and promotes consistency of the centers of gravity of the rider and his horse.
We know that the most stable form, from a mechanical point of view, is the triangle. The body weight of the rider happens vertically on the floor of the stirrup, stabilizes the leg without fixing and prevents swinging movements can be seen on the conventional caliper. The leg of the rider is placed naturally by the body weight and without mechanical stress which limits movement .
The movement takes place through stable support points in space and around which it is organized. It is this stable point of support offered by the clip K VALL .
When the leg is stabilized , it is the whole body which is , itself, stabilized . This is what enables the alignment of the centers of gravity of the rider couples – horse in the vertical.
At the obstacle, the rider gains time to regain his balance on receipt of a jump and resume following its course. At first the obstacle, he makes ease to rebalance the horse and ask him to engage his hindquarters. During the jump, the rider, whose legs tipping over backward, still above his horse’s center of gravity will, he can better use his back.
The integral floor of the stirrup K VALL allows to use the entire surface of the foot and the heel to equilibrate.
The balance is achieved through the combined action of the eyes , the inner ear and foot . Or standing our body weight reaches 70% in our heel. Our heel is particularly important in the regulation of our balance.
Balance is dynamic: far from being fixed, it is built in the movement and in response to imbalances constantly renegotiated. This rebalancing is primarily due to the articulation of the ankle. On the bracket K VALL , ankle regains its response capacity since it is no longer required to be maintained in increased bending as the classic stirrup. It may again flex to us rebalance and with much less tension associated in the rest of the body . This rebalancing is so reflex and very fast. By improving our ability to respond to reflex imbalance, we improve the speed of our response ..
The equilibrium is stable, when the projection of the center of gravity is located in the base of support formed by its supports . So over this bearing zone is wider, the balance is facilitated. Thus, our balance is easier when we are on the whole surface of our feet rather than based on our toes only.
When the heel rests, the back is quieter , more present , more available .
