Now even stronger! The Backcountry Cinch Straps are used to secure 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, two metal cam buckles, and features you won’t find in any other strap. 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 buckles have 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.
Easy to use and tons of strap to spare. That poi nt alone makes it worth it. Another simple but greaf product.
I bought the Backcountry 30 Duffle to use on day trips when I don’t need the panniers. I also noted it’s the perfect dimensions for carry-on flight luggage and used it for my recent European trip. The bag works great in both scenarios, and it’s ability to expand helped when I filled it with European treats. Highly recommended for the discerning traveler.
I purchased there after using some buckle straps to secure my Mosko 40L duffle to the top of my Tenere 700, they worked, but these are much better. These straps are very versatile, they are well designed and well made. These will last a lifetime.
Received the MM Backcountry Cinch Straps as part of my order, three days before leaving for a 6 week, 11,450mi, round trip, finishing with the TransAmerica Trail. The straps worked better than I expected, were easy to use and adjust, held my Backcountry Duffle securely to the bike, and came in super handy when called to straighten a bent shift lever and bent crash bars. I highly recommend them. They would work on any type of tail bag or rear duffle bag, not just Mosko bags.
So happy to see a product that is intuitive on how is supposed to be set up and used. High quality molded metals without any sharped edges (tumbled or removed) and the strap material and stitching seems ready to take the abuse. Key to remember is that even if the straps do not last, the clamps will and you can just replace the straps with other. Highly recommended.
