5.0 out of 5 stars “Looks a solid, useful product”
By Graham P - Mon 29 March 2016 *****
Looks like a really solid product, though so far I've only used them to strap stuff down in my van rather than on the bike. They certainly worked well there, the loops can be threaded through and looped to things like seat mounts or the van frame without the damage caused by the usual metal hooks found on ratchet straps. The buckles look pretty tough, though I've had ones like these break before now, but I'll certainly be using them on the up-coming bike trip.
Used them to hold down 3 weeks luggage for 2 people on my bike trip round the Adriaitic. It was the most weight I've ever carried on a back rack in 45 years of biking and it didn't move at all, even when we fell off at some lights! The most impressive bit was when I had to use them to strap down the bike on the ferry to Albania, after the crew gave me just two pieces of thick string for the job. It was quite a rough crossing and we didn't sleep much for worrying, but the bike didn't move at all...upgraded review to 5 stars now!

Arrived today, These ROK Straps are very well made, very impressed, tried them out on a short 60 mile run, I used them to hold LOMO 40L Drybag, they worked a treat, no marks left on the bike :) this makes me happy, I was wondering before I received them why they seemed expensive for straps, now I know why, extremely well made and engineered, worth every penny, very happy, off for a 4 day trip in the near future and hoping The ROK straps and LOMO Drybag combo work for me, I can't see why not on todays test over bumpy B roads. Happy Happy :)

By Alexander on 17 June 2017
I bought these after reading a number of reviews about various types of motorcycle tie downs. They are excellent. A little hard to undo if you synchs them really tight, but that's true of most straps and never stopped them from being functional. I did a road trip from London to Berlin and back and have been using them for various things since (groceries, my ukulele, an aquarium) and I am extremely happy.

By David on 16 October 2017
I bought this for my scooter to hold my backpack luggage to the back of my bike and it is still like new, essential piece for every bike. I did a 30k miles trip around the world it's still like new.
4.0 out of 5 stars “In some circumstances the elastic section would benefit from being half as long again.”
By Biker one on 18 December 2014
The straps themselves are more than adequate for their suggested purpose. The loops at either end of the straps are well constructed with ample stitching that promise long life. The elastic part of the straps are aprox. 7.5 inches/20 centimetres long.
I carry two Ortlieb Dry Bags over a rack. I have been using one strap & six bungees. These straps have allowed me to ditch four bungees.
Even in compression bags the sleeping bags in the Ortlieb Dry Bags do have a tendency to compress with time allowing the straps to loose a little tension. I now retention after the first hour. After that they are OK. A longer elastic section would be less affected by this compression effect.
On the whole I am happy with my purchase.
5.0 out of 5 stars “Top quality”
By martin fennell on 27 June 2017
Good quality item, I've been touring many times and know how important it is to have quality kit, if it isn't it simply doesn't last, this will.

5.0 out of 5 stars “Excellent product - many happy scratchless miles!”
By Amazon Customer on 6 December 2017
These are excellent 'fast clip' adjustable straps that tighten very effectively with a little elasticity to ensure an excellent fit. They also don't tend to scratch the paint work which is ideal for the more fussy bikers. Would highly recommend these!
5.0 out of 5 stars “A wise buy”
By Peter on 19 July 2017
I was recommended these straps by a friend for fastening the luggage onto my bike rather than the old bungees I was still using. I found them to be of excellent quality and very easy to use.

5.0 out of 5 stars “great”
By Adder22 on 2 August 2014
I am a great fan of these straps they really do the job well. I used them for a trip to Prague and they didn't let me down. The only criticism is they do seem pricey.

Every review you have ever read about these things is true. They really are excellent kit and worth every penny. Throw away for bungees and use these instead.

4.0 out of 5 stars “Rok straps”
By r.c. Morrison 22 February 2014
Definitely an improvement on bungees. Much easier to fix and unfix. And can be left on the bike when luggage is removed. Flexible fixing system, both halves can be linked so the strap can go right round the rear frame which avoids need for fixing points on the bike.
Expensive compared to bungees, but an improvement.
