Restrap launches Hike a Bike Harness

Restrap, the technical bikepacking brand, has unveiled a new, innovative accessory for riders who love the outdoors – the Hike a Bike Harness.

The Hike a Bike Harness is made for off road trails where there might be long sections of “hike a bike”, where the bike may need to be carried up steep tracks or over unrideable terrain.

Whether tackling steep mountain trails or rugged terrain off road, the harness is designed to make the journey easier and more enjoyable.

Restrap say the Hike a bike Harness is “quick and easy to fit to most bikes”, allowing riders to go from carrying their bike to riding “in a matter of seconds”. 

When it’s time to walk your bike up tough hike a bike terrain, the harness lets riders do so hands free.

Designed to not interfere with riding, the adjustable mounting points and lightweight design mean the harness can be adjusted to fit the bike.

Included are two retention straps and a long fast strap to secure the front wheel in place.

Made from TPU coated Nylon and finished with vegan friendly PU Restrap Label.

RRP: £49.99 / €59.99 / $79.99
