Old-School "Getback Whip"
You need to create every advantage you can nowadays to avoid being run over, years ago motorcycles were the only vehicles with the headlight on all the time and people noticed us, now almost every vehicle made comes with daytime running lights. When you have a long whip from IronBraid hanging from your lever blowing in the breeze you attract attention and catch the eye of other drivers. The Get Back Whips will fan out while riding and will not slap the rider or passenger. All Get Back Whips are Hand-Braided over a rope core and attached directly to a Quick Release (aka - Panic Snap) it can be attached to either the brake or clutch lever. With a quick downward pull, the whip can be released quickly in case of an "emergency." The panic snap is commonly used in the horse field to release an out of control horse. All whips are made from the same full grain upholstery leather used in all IronBraid products. Today the whips are used for aesthetic reasons only but like most things they have a history of their own. “Back in the day, these leather whips were usually made with the 1% bike club colors, besides showing off their club colors the whips could be quickly released and used "in case of emergency" to swing at anything that was causing a threat to the biker, hence the name "Get Back Whip".
Not everyone has the same bike, the same risers, the same handlebars, or the same taste. That's why we offer our Get Back Whips in 3 different Stock Lengths 24", 36" and 48" that can be ordered easily online. You can have a whip made in any length you choose just by calling us. Whip length is measured from the top of the clip to the end of the fringe. Fringe is 12" & Panic Snap is 4 1/2" Long.
- Braiding Color Choices
Braids are available in 1 or 2 colors from your choice of 19.
- Tie-Off Colors (both ends of braiding) Choose one from your choice of 19.
Note: Will not fit around some levers that have leather covers installed! If purchasing our braided levers and you want a whip to hang off the end, let us know and we can braid the levers short of the ball end so the quick release will fit around the leather and the lever. If you do not need the quick release part of the snap we have other snaps that we can use to make a whip for you, they come off but not with the quick pull.
