Old-School "Getback Whip" or "Wind Whip"
The Braided Leather Get Back Whips come stock in 3 lengths 24", 36" & 48" (see more information for custom lengths) and made from a 1/2" round diameter leather braid 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." All whips are made from the same full grain upholstery leather used in all IronBraid products.
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. The panic snap is commonly used in the horse field to release an out of control horse.
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". Our Panic Snaps fits over all levers regardless if you have Leather Lever Covers or not.
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 (Pricing May Vary from).
Whip length is measured from the top of the clip to the end of the fringe. Fringe is 11" & Panic Snap is 4 1/2" Long.
