When self-professed ‘tight Yorkshireman’ Nathan Hughes couldn’t find decent pedal straps for his bike, he knuckled down and built them himself. With a single sewing machine in a back bedroom, Restrap was born. From those humble origins, the brand has grown into a close-knit team of machinists, designers, family and friends, all of whom are fiercely proud of the brand’s Yorkshire roots. The mantra is simple: “design, build, ride”. As such, Restrap’s product range now includes everything that a discerning cyclist might need for their daily commute, weekend cycle tour or round-the-world bikepacking expedition. And it’s all made by hand, in the UK, using the highest-quality components, sustainable materials and local labour.
