Restrap Straps, fix your feet to the pedals

Restrap Straps box
Hi all, today we have another product review, in this case we will review the Restrap Straps. As many of you know, keep our feet stuck to the pedals are critical when we ride in a fixed gear bike. You can choose different systems of foot retention, but under our experience we can say the straps is the best system.

The story of this Restrap Straps

This is a variation on their classic diagonal design, the horizontals offer the same reliable strength and durability. Made to last.


Construction

Naturally arched to fit your foot, the straps require no manual adjustment. Thanks to their unique flag stitched design, the strap keeps its shape and remains free from the crank arm. Classic, plated buckles provide a quality finish.

Fitting the straps

Straps are supplied with instructions and include a full fitting kit with washers and screws. Buckles should be worn on the outside of the pedal.

Our experience testing the Restrap Straps

As always, we have tested this straps in our Pinky Fixie (our test bike for the moment). First of all, we dismounted our old classic toe clips and straps to fit our new Restrap Straps. We cleaned the pedal, and then we started to fit the straps, it was really easy, you only need to insert the straps between the gaps on the pedal and adjust it to your foot size.

Riding with straps

Then we start riding, at first time, introduce the foots in the straps seems a bit difficult (it is normal, when takes the form of the foot is easier). You will discover the big difference between straps and toe clips when you try skid... amazing! To skid in asphalt is easy with straps...be careful or your wheels will die in few days hahaha....

Conclusion

  • Great design: only in black color, with Restrap logos, simplicity.
  • Strong, really strong to skid!
  • High quality materials and good finishes.
  • Easy to fit and adjust
  • Highly recommended if you are searching for a high quality straps with a minimal design to skid
