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.
LOVE LOVE LOVE these straps! They cinch down tight and don't loosen up. I love the length of the strap... you never know when you need more strap. But the best part of the strap, which is such a simple item.... The shock cord keeper loops to keep the extra length of the strap nice and neat on the bike. One thing I've always hated about other straps, the extra strap has to be tucked under something to keep from flying all around or getting caught in the wheel. This is such a simple item but shows the quality and the attention to detail of Mosko. Bravo guys and gals!
The Back Country Cinch Straps are the best moto oriented straps I have ever used. They will not loosen, (Gear settling inside the bag is no fault of the strap) they hold up to weather and repeated long term use, the elastic draws are super durable and no rubber bands that lets things move. They really should be in every riders arsenal...they are that good.
First, I don't give five stars unless I get a backrub, scotch and a cigar with my purchase.
With that out of the way, the Backcountry Cinch Straps are the perfect strap for all my needs. I have been making my own for years, and now that I've used this fine product, I'll just stick with that from now on.
Built for stout, perfectly adjustable, and easy to use, they held my gear securely over three nights and 600 rough miles in Montana and Idaho. Well thought-out strap keepers too.
I've been a Mosko fan from the beginning, and these straps reinforce that.
These straps are built solid. The dual buckles provide great adjustably to secure the load being strapped down and the cams hold the strap without slipping.
