Makes long flats more tolerable

Karakoram Heel Lock Down (Single Riser)
I tried a set of these on a recent trip to the Wallowas. The route had a 6-mile Forest Service road approach which was pretty flat. Got lucky and hitched a tow in but it was all ride, ski, skate on the way out. In the locked down position, I found the skating and skiing much easier. Engaging and disengaging the lock down takes some practice and I can't say it's something you'd want to do repeatedly. But for the long flats where you can set it and forget it, it is definitely nice to have.
