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.

    High quality straps

    The straps are very well thought-out, offer numerous application possibilities and nice details, like the possibility to fix the free ends.

    Cinch Straps

    Purchased straps with Backcountry duffle.
    These are the best straps I have used.
    What I like is that individual fixing of each end of the strap.
    When fixing to rack or mounting points you can pull down to each fixing point.
    I travel a lot of mixed dirt road/track surfaces in Australia and the bag remains secured.
