So it’s been quite some time since I got these fancy straps from Jonas at Sofus Franciso. They’ve spent about six months on my Pista that I use for transportation ans for messengering in Sac now. They’ve got hundreds of miles on them from cruising the trail and survived some heavy tugging from some nice hills. Sadly my bikes spent a few nights locked up out in the rain when I…ummm…didn’t didn’t feel capable riding anywhere haha. Through all that they’ve seen they’re not only still holding strong but are actually more comfortable and better than ever as they’ve been broken in. Here’s a little breakdown on the things I love about the Titan.
Durability: Through falls, rain, tons of riding and work these bad jammas have no tears or and real signs of coming apart. The buckles are still holding the straps to the pedal like they did when new and the threads look just about new. There is a small spot on my non drive side from letting it scrape the ground every day. I often use my left foot to slow me down to save tires when I’m broke haha. Regardless the strap is still holding strong not showing any signs of coming apart!
Comfort: From the day I got these on my bike I dug the way they felt. They haven’t caused any tears in my shoes from the hardware like some straps. There’s been no awkward pinching on my feet or pain from them being too tight. What I love about them is that they’re leather and as leather gets weathered it breaks in so nice. The Titans are soft but sturdy now and feel good to pull on when just riding or grabbing for some skids.
Fit: Some straps are notorious for breaking in and being too flimsy and awkward to get your feet into. Others can be too tight on your feet or too narrow to get into quickly. These guys have held their shapes up till now with no signs of breaking down. My feet pop in and out with ease and I’ve yet to eat shit from being stuck to my bike haha.
Bottom Line: The Titans are strong, durable and way comfortable. They’re one of the better straps I’ve ridden (believe it or not there’s been a few :)). I’m just hoping I can get my hands on some of the new Titan [Pro] jams!
