Thinking about loading up your motorcycle and hitting the open road to freedom? Or perhaps just taking a long weekend ride to independence? Either way, you'll most likely need to bring a few things with you. And whatever you cannot fit in the motorcycle will need to be attached to it.
Over the years, we've seen a number of methods for securing one's wares to a motorcycle, with mostly limited success. Long ago, the best option available was the traditional or narrow nylon rope. This meant riding with the constant fear of finding just a dangling end of cordage after scattering the road with your precious cargo.
To make matters worse, lashing extra luggage or camping equipment to your motorcycle meant the strap was usually either much too long or just a tad too short. No so with the infinitely adjustable tie-down straps from Rok Straps, which combine a stretchable natural rubber-core strap and non-scratch polypropylene cinch strap with loop ends. All of this is then connected with a plastic, shatter-resistant buckle. The stretchable rubber end is protected from nicks and UV light via a colorful polyester braiding. With strap sizes ranging from 15mm to 30mm wide and 300mm to 1.5 meter long, you will find a strap for every job too.
With Rok Straps' stretch straps we're been able to attach everything to our test motorcycle. In all cases, mounting the goods was a simple as cinching the strap and forgetting about it.
After numerous uses and countless kilometers, the durable little buggers how zero evidence of wear or fatigue on either the buckle or the strap itself.
