Now Stocking – Power Grips

October 26th, 2009 Posted in Commuting, New products, Touring

Update: January 18th 2010 – Powergrips back in stock!

Update: December 20th 2009 - We’re sold out of Power Grips, the wholesaler is sold out of Power Grips, and the manufacturer is sold out of Power Grips – Should be back in stock in the New Year, fingers crossed for soon.

I’m stoked that we’ve got some stock of Power Grip pedal straps available. I’ve been using them on my bike for a few years and think they’re a great option if you’re looking for an alternative to cleats or toe-cages. They’re $60 a pair for the standard length.

Powergrips are so brilliant, so sublime in their simplicity and economy of material, so superior in function and practicality, that it is a crime they are not standard equipment on all new mid and entry level mountain bikes, hybrids and city bikes. – Practical Pedal

Powergrips are durable, cheap, and effective. The inch-wide webbing straps won’t scratch up your Manolo Blahniks’ the way regular toeclips will; they let you move your foot around on the pedal as comfort demands, and a twist of the foot instantly binds or releases them. They have all the advantages of both toe clips and clipless pedals with none of the downsides. – Momentum Magazine

The most underrated bicycle accessory on this or any other planet. – Rivendell
