The strength of the magnetic connection depends on the thickness of your riding boot soles. The thinner the sole, the more powerful the magnetic connection.
So if you have thin-soled competition riding boots, you will have a stronger connection than in thick winter-boots. Generally, our test-riders have all been very happy with the connection regardless of the boots used.
And you never need to worry to get caught in case you fall – the magnetic connection will break in that case.
