Performs as expected

Posted17 August 2015
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
Cons: Expensive
This was used to replace an old strap that had cracked and split. Local bike shops seemed unable to provide so bought online. It was possible to replace the old strap relatively easily and now has been on the Altura pannier for a couple of weeks with no problems, and don't expect there to be for a strip of hardened rubber. My only concern would be that with P&P, £7 to replace a strap seems pretty expensive, although clearly better than replacing the whole pannier

Renew an old pannier.

Yes, I recommend this product.
Having had my Altura panniers for about 7 years, the old rubber handle had perished, probably because I had overloaded it with work equipment. Oh well. I found that I could get hold of replacement handles.
The replacement handles had to be ordered in, they didn't have stock in the local branch. It looks like Altura have changed the design for the better over the years. the new handles appear to be more resilient and are slightly thicker where they are likely to wear more.

Worth the money

Posted10 January 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Comfortable
I have owned a pair of Altura panniers for years and was really disappointed when the rubber strap snapped. It seemed a shame to ditch the bags and I was pleased to find that I could buy a new rubber handle (Well done Altura!) The design was improved (thicker where it broke) and it was easy to fit, and 10 minutes later - job done!

Altura Arran/Dura Rubber Handle

Posted24 July 2010
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, add a pro
Have owned a pair of Altura Arran panniers for many years, and hang them up on the handle under the stairs to keep them out of the way. When one handle broke 8 months ago I thought I was going to have to buy a new pannier.
So much to my pleasure I found you could get spares. OK they may appear expensive for what they are, but it's cheaper than buying a new pannier. Plus the replacement handle is better than the original.
Also delivery was quick, and just the right packaging was used (yes I suffer from Goldilocks syndrome!!)
Would I recommend this to a friend - yes I would.
