Leeds based brand Restrap got started in a back bedroom in 2010. Founder, Nathan made himself some pedal straps, his mates wanted some too and before he knew it, Restrap was born.
The Fixe scene was booming in Leeds at the time, it even had its own Alleycat events and meet-ups. From supplying pedal straps within the Leeds Fixie scene, Nathan branched out into the broad range of bags, luggage and accessories available today. The popularity of gravel riding and bike-packing has broadened Restraps product range and led to a worldwide surge demand for the brands products. All products are carefully designed and produced using the best materials available.
Producing High Quality
Restrap is still based in Leeds, however the days of working in a back bedroom are long gone. The brand occupy a large workshop, where a close knit team of machinists, designers, friends and family produce beautifully finished products, for customers who appreciate a high quality product.
Because Restrap make everything they sell in-house, they are able to take sustainability very seriously. They keep waste low and recycle as much as possible. Restrap source materials as close as possible to their workshop to keep the environmental impact of the products they produce as low as possible.
Supplying the bikepacking market with high quality products and with a genuine mission to inspire people to ride further and encourage exploration, Restrap have produced some very informative guides on every aspect of bikepacking.
