Backcountry Research Super 8 Strap
Endurance racing, bikepacking, and epic rides place a premium on storage space. You end up stuffing your hydration packs, frame bags, and jersey pockets to the point that there's just no room for anything else. When the day starts to warm up, there's nowhere for you to quickly stow the layers you needed to get through those chilly morning miles. You end up cramming your arm warmers, jacket, vest, or cap in with your food and other essential gear, making it even harder to access what you need without slowing down or taking the risk of losing something important on the trail.
The Super 8 Strap was designed to be a practical and simple solution to these problems. Made to be left on the bike, the self-adjusting shock cords allow for ample, on-the-fly storage of your excess gear. You will now be able to handily stash spare layers or gear without slowing down. A light jacket, arm warmers, vest, battery... even a spare tube you hastily grabbed at the last aid station, all tucked away in seconds. Made from 1.5" Hypalon®, its low profile design keeps it out of the way until you need it.
The bonus, the Super 8 is so versatile and accommodating you can even lock down your cell phone if you can't leave your e-world behind.
To Load: Select large or small tension strap to achieve tightest fit. Simply pull the dual-shockcords up and over the ends of your spare layers or gear.
To Mount: Position the Super 8 on the top tube then, feed the slack end through the contoured loop and reef.
Phone Mount: Pull shortest set of shockcords up and over the ends of your phone to lock it down. The back side of your phone will rest on the rubber tubing of the longer shockcords preventing frame contact and chatter.
Sizing: Fits up to a 8" circumference (distance around).
