State-of-the-art manufacturing (with robots welding the seams of the one-piece lowers) allows SW-MOTECH to introduce the newest hard panniers for adventure motorcycles, the TraX Adventure cases.
The TraX are a step up from the previous-generation EVO cases, with improved strength and durability to match their standard features – light, waterproof and up to the rigorous standards of the U.S. adventure motorcycle market.
Three-D formed areas enhance the cases’ strength without adding excess weight. A chamfer along the lower edge of each case maximizes ground clearance when the bike is leaned over and improves rider safety in a get-off by eliminating sharp edges. Further enhancing the look and safety are glass fiber-reinforced plastic protecting the outer edges.
Specially designed gaskets, welding seams, rivets and screws keep water and dust out. All plastic components are punch-riveted to the case instead of perforating the wall material, eliminating holes where water or dirt could enter. A special sealing geometry achieves a watertight connection between the lid and case body.
These cases provide practical solutions for daily and long-distance riding, including removable lids, locking stainless steel latches, internal lid stays, outer tie-down points and a versatile carrier system. These cases will fit any SW-MOTECH Quick-Lock side carriers, which combine bike-specific fit with quick-release detachment from the bike. These side carriers are available for almost any adventure or sport-touring motorcycle in production. Adapters are available to mount the TraX cases to other carrier systems. TraX+ accessories include inner storage bags, a camp table, lid nets and waterproof expansion bags.
Available in silver anodized or black powder-coated finishes, the side cases have a storage capacity of 37 or 45 liters; the top case holds 38 liters. Individual cases start at $480.95 each; complete kits including mounting hardware start at $1,986.55.
