This was corrected via a manufacturing fix to the 2009/10 Nitranes, and Ride offered free parts to correct the issue. Newer Nitranes should have the same problem, but it is worth noting. If it does happen, Ride will send you a new V-strap.

i have regular Contrabands (no webbing), and haven't had any durability issues with the V-strap.
