Sometimes you just have to get off and push. Technical bikepacking gear specialists, Restrap know this, so they’ve launched a brand new outdoor product they’re sure you’ve never seen before. It’s a new way to carry your steed on super rough terrain… introducing the new Hike-A-Bike harness.

This product is aimed at riders who love heading out on trails that are rugged, with long un-ridable, hike-a-bike sections where the bike may need to be carried up very steep grades or over unrideable terrain.

Restrap says that the Hike-A-Bike Harness is a quick and easy fit to most bikes, giving the ability to go from riding your bike to carrying your bike and back again a snap. When the rider has the bike strapped to the harness, it allows your hands to be free for balance or moving obstacles.

When it is tucked away on the top tube, it remains out of the way and will not interfere with your riding. It uses adjustable mounting points allowing the lightweight design to be custom tailored to fit your bike.

The harness is made of durable TPU coated Nylon and finished with a vegan-friendly PU Restrap label and comes with two retention straps and a long fast strap to secure the front wheel.

This is a niche item for sure, but I can see it has it’s place. This could be good if you want to get to a biking spot with a small child, but the route to get there is too advanced for the kid. Put him or her on a front child carrier or trailer, put their bike on your back, and once at the destination the kid can ride his/her bike.

This is genuinely creative! I haven’t seen much creativity in the bike industry lately but this is legitimately a good product for those who need it.

If you have a small frame or a sloping top tube you’re gonna get a crank to the lumbar aren’t you?

I could see that working especially well with a full-size folding bike, such as a folding mountain bike. It opens your range of hiking options on the way up.
