Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Unique buckle, maybe, quick release no!
Have just purchased a set of these straps as my collection of christophe staps and others no longer identifiable were showing their age.The very first thing I noted was my error in being impressed by the claim that these have a unique quick release buckle and failing to look carefully at the photo.I've been using toe clips and straps for 52 years and recall only the very cheapest straps a without an integral roller. It's the roller that facilitates the quick release, without it the buckle digs into the leather, denying that speedy exit from the pedal that is sometimes essential.
Very disappointed as I had every faith that Brooks would have lived up to their reputation and at this price not skimped on the omission of a roller.
