A Little Bit of Yesterday
There's a history behind these old-school biker or "getback" whips. Back in the day, you'd see bikers sporting whips - hanging from their clutch or brake levers as they rode. The leather whips were usually made from the biker's club colors - to display their colors and for club recognition. But the whips were a whole lot more than just leather club colors. A biker whip could be quickly released and used "in case of emergency."
Make A Statement
Although many of our old-school biker whips are sent to motorcycle club members, you don't have to be affiliated with a club to ride with the distinctive, old-school look. Our whips are handcrafted in the USA from thick premium American cowhide. They are braided around a thick nylon core to give them body and help them resist slapping you or your precious cargo.
Quick Release Clip
Each Biker whip is braided directly to a quick release clip that can be attached to either the brake or clutch lever. With a quick downward pull, the biker whip can be released quickly in case of "emergency." We recommend an application of Clear Nail Polish to preserve the finish of the clasp and for enhanced rust resistance.
Not everyone has the same bike, the same risers, the same handlebars, or the same taste. That's why we offer our biker getback whips in lengths from 25" - 48". Choose the length that is right for you by measuring from top of the lever to the end of the fringe. Whip Length is measured from the center of the clip hole (in the closed position) to the end of the whip fringe ("fall").
When choosing 2 or more colors, the 1st color is also used as the "wrap color" at the bottom of the whip.
Leather has two sides: The "hair side" (that's the outer/finished side used for most leather products) and the "flesh" side (the suede-like understand of a hide). The "reversed" option simply means that the flesh side will be exposed, instead of the finished side, giving the whip a slightly different look and feel.
