Backcountry Cinch Straps (pair)

The Backcountry Cinch Strap is used to connect a rear duffle or pannier topper to your bike. This is our version of the ultimate cinch strap. There are no elastic or plastic parts to break/stretch on a long trip, just high-tensile polyfilament webbing, a steel ladderlock, and a steel cam buckle. Price is per pair

These two-piece straps quickly connect to the bike using lanyard loops, and they also have adjustable-length tails, so they'll work on everything from a large high capacity duffle to a small pannier topper. They include strap keepers, so your excess strap lengths won't flap around in the wind, and the cam buckle has a webbing backing to prevent damage to the bag/bike.

We designed these straps to function as an emergency tow strap if you have a breakdown (put the rear duffle on your back, worn as a backpack, and use the straps to tow) or an emergency tie-down system if you have to load your bike in the back of someone's truck in a pinch. Check out the product video to see how it works.

Please keep in mind that the towing/tie-down feature is meant for emergency use only. These straps should not be considered your primary tow & tie-down solution. The weakest point in the system is the aluminum ladder-lock buckle, therefore, when towing heavy bikes through rough terrain, do not use the part of the strap with the ladder-lock and cam buckle on it. Instead, combine the two webbing-only parts of the straps to make a single longer tow strap. Same principle when using them as emergency tie-downs: for best results, do not crank them as tight as you would a standard motorcycle tie-down.

    Required for duffel back! 😊

    Backcountry 40L Duffle back can be attached. Even if the luggage increases and the beaver tail swells, it's okay.
    Conversely, even if your luggage decreases, you can safely tighten the strap.
    Others seem to be strong enough to tow a bike.

    Loving My Softsides

    I do a lot of adventure riding and having a softside option is terrific.

    Very good Strap

    Very durable and flexible strap. Good build and good design. It can handle anything that you want to pack on your bike. In fact this is the best straps I've ever used. I and my friend ordered 2 pack of this together and we still haven't regret any cents we paid for this, except we're from Vietnam and we have to ship this "made in Vietnam" strap back to Vietnam lol (finding this very funny after unpacking the shipment, really)

    excellent bags

    it is a pleasure to use the bags! In every little thing you can see that moskomoto, are proff biker himself! Thank you very for these high quality bags!


    I just received my Mosko 60 l, duffle and cinch straps. Although I have not used it on an actual trip yet, I thoroughly analysed it and am very, very happy with my purchase.
    I find the construction quality and materials used to be of the very highest quality.
    I am also very well impressed how this product design is so well thought out.
    Its clear that whoever designed this product is very experienced in using such products.
    As one rolls the bag in the inside trapped air shows how water proof the product is. However, I would suggest adding an air valve in order to let the trapped air out while rolling it in making it much easier to close the bag.
    Ideally, the valve would be retrofitable by their owner allowing earlier customers to install one of these valves in their product.

    Congratulations one a really great product !
