Motorcycle adventure travel requires serious adventure luggage. We believe that our new OVERLANDER SYSTEM sets a new standard.
We've always had a background in 'adventure bikers' and launched the original Kriega Overlander-30 and 60 in 2009. The popular Overlander-30 works well as it is a frameless solution that fits most off-road / dual motorcycles and stays in the contemporary range. However, the Overlander-60 will no longer be in range for 2017. It is a good idea to have a flexible system for mounting Overlander-15 packs or Rotopax ™ fuel and water containers in various combinations. But in use it turned out to be complex to remove the luggage from the motorcycle.
We knew there had to be a better solution ...
We sat down with some of the leading adventure motorcycle experts, including world renowned Chris Scott, author of the Adventure Motorcyclists Handbook and Mondo Enduro's Austin Vince, and asked a simple question, "what do you want from your motorcycle luggage"?
The answer was always the same, it should be soft and impact resistant, lightweight and compact, guaranteed waterproof / dust resistant, but it should be easier to get it on and off the bike. Especially after a long day in the saddle, the last thing you want to do is struggle with your luggage ...
In the coming year we developed the new OVERLANDER-SYSTEM or OS for short.
The top of its fleet is the OS-32 soft bag with a structured box shape for easy packing, with a 100% waterproof roll top and a removable white inner bag. Assembly and disassembly takes less than a minute with two quick-releases and buckles. The same straps compress the suit securely in place, no additional straps are needed. Made from premium materials, including ultra-abrasion-resistant Hypalon ™ + 1000D Cordura®, with Kevlar® webbing and aircraft alloys.
With two easy mounting options, either the traditional 'over the seat' saddle bag method with OS-STRAPS, or as a single bag by connecting to a specially designed OS-PLATFORM. The PLATFORM is permanently mounted on the bike, with special mounting kits made for the most popular luggage racks or frames.
Other products in the range consist of 3 sizes of ADVENTURE PACKS 6, 12 and 18 liters. These are based on our very popular US-Drypacks, but have been redesigned for riding in the most demanding environments, with heavy duty cam buckles, a semi-rigid base and the use of Hypalon ™ + 1000D Cordura®. These bags can be mounted directly using the integrated hook loops or as a multi-pack storage system when connected to the OS-32 bag.
To complete the range we have added OS-CAM STRAPS and OS-RACK LOOPS formats. This way you can adapt your luggage system to your adventure.
