We love these Bates stirrup leathers made in heritage leather because of their comfortable and durable design.
Heritage leather upholds the traditional European practices of natural oil and wax tannage. The high oil and wax content of this performance leather ensures optimum suppleness and enhanced rider grip.
Characteristic of the finest natural leather, the leather is heavily pre-oiled with visible shade variations, often being referred to as a ‘pull up’ leather with a traditional, if not distressed aesthetic. The depth of color is dependent on the infused oil content within the fibers of each particular hide. The distinctive tones of color are particularly visible when the leather is bent as the color lightens returning over time to its original color as the oils migrate back through into the fibers.
Bates Stirrup Leathers have been developed with rider comfort and safety in mind. They are extremely supple and slimline, featuring a stainless steel riveted buckle design, reducing the thickness of leather under the rider’s leg, eliminating any interference, while the webbing core ensures they will not stretch and cause unevenness.
