The best selling item in the Back Country Range is better than ever for 2016. The Race Strap with Overlock is specifically designed for MTBers wanting to get ride of the constant nuisance that is a saddlebag.
For 2016, the Race Strap gets tougher Velcro and the overlock feature. Your spares will be strapped down tighter than a camel's butt in a sandstorm.
Every part of the Race Strap is designed for function. The pull mounts are easy to operate with gloves on, the dual shock cord system to preload the goods is simple and effective. Installation is as intuitive as installing a light bulb.
It'll fit a standard 26, 27.5 or wagon wheel tube with 2 Co2 cartridges a multi-tool and levers or basically whatever you want.
The Race Strap is fully compatible with a Dropper post and it's intuitive design makes it the quickest way to access you spares during race changes.
The Race Straps are created with premium materials. The straps are heavyweight webbing that won't bleed and resist s fading while the stitching used is industrial quality, rot and UV resistant polyester threads.
To clean it up, just hose it down or throw it in the wash on a warm cycle, then air dry.
To load the race strap up is a case of simply centring your tube on the grippy strip, and pulling the 2 shock cords up and over. Flip it over and put your other bits and bobs in - levers, tool, inflation.
To mount it up - Simply run the D Ring end over the top of the seat rails, feed the slack end through the contoured loop and reef it down and stick the velcro straps together. Put the Velcro overlock straps together and hey presto! You're done.
