Strap Ons are a highly adjustable and hard wearing strap system for everything from fixed gear freestyle riding to everyday use. Designed from the ground up as an alternative to double straps and cages, the Strap Ons achieve maximum usability without compromising the feel of the ride.

The system has undergone research, design and rigorous testing throughout 2009 and has evolved into the current form (find out more here). The straps are constructed from a highly abrasion resistant TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane), which has industrial uses in inflatable boats and hovercraft bladders. The system is bound together with no hardware or buckles; Instead the design features a system of adhesive backed and stitched hook and loop, which distributes the weight of the rider over the entire pedal/strap surface area. The Strap Ons provide an unparalleled amount of traction and grip to your pedals due to this large surface area over foot. In fact one of our gear testers has even gone on to describe riding system as though being “duct taped to the pedals.”

The actual system itself is quite stiff due to the multiple layers of TPU and Hook/Loop, however does not compromise comfort. In addition to this the adjustability of the system allows the rider to wear anything from the narrowest, slimmest kicks, all the way up to chunky size 13’s without affecting comfort or grip.
