Giant Loop Pannier Mounts Offer Lockable, Quick-Release Anchor Solution for Motorcycle Soft Luggage and Gear
This is a press release from Giant Loop…
Bend, OR (May 24, 2019) – For 2019, expedition-gear innovator Giant Loop updated its 2018 “Nifty 50” award-winning Pannier Mounts.
Lower retail price, wider range of adjustability, improved finish quality and additional rigidity are among the improvements to this ultralight, rugged, stable, quick-connect, quick-release, lockable solution for motorcycle soft luggage and equipment.
Constructed of aircraft grade aluminum with a black anodized finish, stainless steel hardware and a key lock mechanism, GL Pannier Mounts weigh less than 4 lbs. per pair, including spare keys. In keeping with the company’s minimalist “go light, go fast, go far” design philosophy, GL Pannier Mounts feature just two moving parts, an anchor clasp and a lock, both of which are accessible without having to reach inside motorcycle luggage.
Although specifically designed for Giant Loop’s rack-mounted motorcycle soft luggage, Round The World Panniers and MotoTrekk Panniers, GL Pannier Mounts offer remarkably versatile solutions for attaching gear to motorcycle side luggage racks. Pre-drilled holes provide easy installation of RotoPax® gas cans, water cans and accessories, and strap slots enable virtually any other gear, tools or bags, to be secured to the GL Pannier Mounts with Giant Loop’s heavy-duty stretch polyurethane Pronghorn Straps.
GL Pannier Mounts are currently compatible with most side luggage rack designs featuring flat, vertical hoops constructed of 16-18mm round tubing. Examples include Adventure Moto X-Frames, Givi Outback, Touratech, KTM Powerparts (1090, 1190, 1290) and Outback Motortek pannier racks. With the optional adapter, Pannier Mounts also fit BMW’s OE side luggage racks on the R1200 GS Adventure, R1250 GS Adventure and F850 GS Adventure models. Sold as a set of two with four keys included, GL Pannier Mounts cost $249 USA MSRP (part number PNTM19) and $299 USA MSRP with the BMW GSA adapters (part number PNMT-GSA).
Giant Loop’s new GL Pannier Mounts and entire product line is available at the company’s GL Adventure Shop in Bend, Oregon, online at www.giantloopmoto.com, select retailers in the USA and Canada and Tucker Distributing and Western Power Sports in the USA, as well as from international importers around the world.
