A little stiffer than the original one makes it a little bit difficult to use. Etrailer shipped very fast and item arrived in perfect condition. Would buy again from etrailer. 214325


Good. Still stiffer than original but has held up well

I built my own bike rack, planning to use bungees to stabilize the bike to hooks that either hook onto the wheel or the frame. I was unable to come up with a good bungee method. I googled around and discovered these bike straps which addressed all my concerns in an economical and sturdy manner. My maiden voyage this summer, my four-bike rack went 1000 miles on mostly highways, but in town, some speed bumps really jarred it. The only problem I had was with a ball-bungee in a different application that fell apart. I am building more bike rack parts to take advantage of these straps. This could be the third product review I've ever made, because without it, my bike-rack would have been pretty-much a failure. signed, happy! 297859

These straps are a new design. They are a much stronger rubber - which is good - and bad. It's good that they might last longer before breaking - BUT, they are SO hard to attach to the arms to secure the bikes on the rack. They aren't quite stretchy enough, they really take a lot of muscle to attach - my husband really hates them - and if you happen to have a larger tube/frame, I can see how it may be even more difficult if not impossible to attach. Not thrilled with the new design. Excellent customer service from etrailer, and quick shipping. This is not an issue with etrailer. Just Softride's new design. 143141

These replacement straps are just as advertised and reviewed. By that, I means that the straps are much more stiff than the original. Being about 3 inches smaller it makes it even more defficukt to snap them into place. I think that I have an older model Softride and believe that a longer straps would have been better. This is not the problem of the company. sent the order out immediately. I had it two days prior the scheduled date. I am high on etrailer. I have found them to be very attentive. I asked a question about these straps and had an answer back in a quickly. 416899

I ordered three packages. One was exactly like the straps that were installed on my product from the factory. The other two were about one inch shorter and had scalloped rather than straight edges. I will use the shorter straps on the anti-sway cradle that straps to the downtube and they should work fine. I'm not sure why (or even if) Softride changed their product. On the etrailer side, what a great online experience! Lots of communication via email, items shipped out same day, and tracking was communicated quickly. I would definitely buy from etrailer again. 16886

The replacement straps for my SoftRide Bike rack are as pictured and are exactly as customers have described: they work, but they ain't like they used to be. Sure enough, the rubber is not as flexible and so demands more pulling. Also, much to my surprise, they are about an inch shorter than the ones I got with the rack. So they are cutting corners. Still and all, they work. And that's what counts in my book. They came timely too. 269978


Very well

Great product, great price! I purchased these straps so that I could make an adjustable fishing pole holder for our kayak. The straps are the perfect shape and length to get the job done. Highly recommend 339701

These straps work great for my steel tubed mtb. I use the last hole but they seem pretty strong. I would need to get the longer straps for a bigger framed bike. 370398

Well made, I believe it will be better than the original. This is more rigid and won't stretch as far but I think that was the downfall of the original. 278285

Ask the Experts about this Softride Accessories and Parts
Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?

  • What is the Hole Diameter for the Softride Replacement Rubber Bike Strap # SR25869
  • I went and pulled a Softride Replacement Rubber Bike Straps, part # SR25869, and found that if you use a tape measure the holes are about 1/4 inch in diameter, but if you were to use a dial caliper and get an exact measurement it is actually closer to 3/8 inch. The overall length of these straps is 9-13/16 inches. It is hard to say for sure if it would work on your Graber Two Bike Rear Mounted Carrier, but it would seem likely that it would. I went out and measured all of the other straps...

  • Can A Womens Bike Be Used On Softride Element 4 Bike Rack # SR26248 Without an Adapter
  • You can hang certain womens bikes on the Softride Element 4 Bike Rack # SR26248 without the need for an adapter such as the Softride Tube Bike Adapter # SR26373. However, I would recommend using the adapter because you will lose some ground clearance without an adapter as the bike will tilt and on some bikes, such as the step-through models, a two-arm carrier will not work without an adapter. I have included a photo showing a womens bike on this rack without the adapter. I have provided...

  • What Size are the Holes in the Softride Replacement Rubber Bike Straps # SR25869
  • The holes on the Softride Replacement Rubber Bike Straps, # SR25869, are 3/8 inch diameter. The overall length is 9-13/16 inches. If you click on the second picture on the product page, you will see the dimensions. These straps are designed to fit the Softride Element, Dura, Elite and Versa bike racks.

  • Availability of Replacement Bike Rack Strap for Softride Bike Rack
  • If the holes on the strap are 3/8 inch like what the # SR25869 has and you aren't using all 12 inches of the strap you currently have these would work. If you have a different size diameter hole in the strap email me back with that size and what rack you have. I can see if there is a different solution we can track down.
