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.
The MM team is spot on. Their gear is bomb-proof, idiot-proof (that's me), and certainly water-proof. Just completed a 1,700 adventure, camping, multiple terrains, and the MM gear performed perfectly. Have likely sold 2-3 more sets to my friends.
1. Two sets of the cinch straps (love them)
2. Multiple, extra pouches
3. Three security, locking straps (great)
4. Side panniers
5. Top luggage
While stiff at first, the top bag and panniers begin to soften and become easier to work with.
Great gear. Well done.
Mosko Moto gear is the best Adventure Gear I have ever used. The materials are outstanding as is the workmanship and most of all attention to details and first hand knowledge of how the gear needs to perform on the road or trail. Last but not least is the value for dollars spent is considerable compared to most quality gear I purchase. Don’t hesitate to purchase is you are serious about the gear you use!
Great bag. Well made.
As usually another well thought out piece of equipment. These straps are tough and high quality. Many years of happy hard adventure ahead.
The Backcountry Cinch Straps are solid. These will not fail and that gives me tons of confidence when riding off-road.
