I am still riding my 5-6 year old Path almost daily. A few months ago my right foot slipped out of the Power Grip and I ran over it at speed...very painful. Last week my foot slipped out causing me to swerve but at least I didn't run over the foot again. Yesterday I removed the Power Grips and I installed JSRL Design foot slings. I rode with them the first time today and they will take a little getting used to. It looks like they will keep me from running over a foot in the future.
