Fandango and Diablo Tank Bags by Giant Loop

Cycle News Staff | March 19, 2021

Giant Loop made its Fandango and Diablo tank bags even more waterproof for 2021.

Giant Loop’s Fandango and Diablo tank bags are constructed from rugged fabric that’s both RF-welded and sewn together. The low-profile tank bags attach to the bike with a harness and have concave shapes on the bottom to allow fuel-cap air vents to breathe. And for fuel fill-ups, there’s no need to remove or remount the bag, just zip it and flip it up.

Giant Loop Redesigns Fandango and Diablo Tank Bags for Superior Waterproofing, Style and Rider Friendly Function

(Bend, OR) It’s not easy to take benchmark-setting motorcycle tank bags like Giant Loop’s award-winning Fandango and Diablo, preserve all of the qualities that make them great, while also improving function, style and construction. But after a two-year-long process, adventure proof packing systems and gear innovator Giant Loop has hit the bullseye with its new 2021 model Fandango and Diablo Tank Bags.

Here is more from Giant Loop’s press release:

Featuring a hybrid construction of sewing plus radio-frequency (RF) welding, the new designs emphasize increased waterproofness while maintaining their many rider-friendly features, such as the low-profile shape that stays out of the rider’s way, the pliable yet rugged structure, and the quick, easy access to fuel fills.

The Fandango and Diablo Tank Bags share the same design and construction, with the Fandango’s slightly taller profile delivering an additional 2 liters of packable volume. They keep essentials handy without interfering with rider’s body position, whether seated or standing on the footpegs. The harness mounts over fuel fill, with concave shapes on the bottom of the tank bags to allow air vents to breathe. And for fill-ups, just zip it and flip it – no need to remove or remount anything!

Made from rugged Bomb Shell™ coated fabric with hybrid RF-welded and sewn construction, the Fandango and Diablo are designed to be completely waterproof, mudproof, snowproof, and dustproof when used with included Tank Bag Dry Pod inner liner.

To organize essentials, an internal zippered mesh pocket with key clip is easily accessed under the lid, and an adjustable/removable divider includes organizers for cards and pen or tire pressure gauge. On the exterior, an exterior stretch mesh pocket accommodates ear plugs, bridge toll or other small items. The easy-access RF-welded waterproof clear map/smartphone lid pocket features an electronics cable pass-through, enabling on-bike charging and power inside the tank bag.

For convenience and security, the tank bags unzip from their harness, so riders can keep valuables with them when away from the bike, while the harness remains on the bike ready to go. With the harness’s integrated D-ring mounts, Giant Loop’s Pannier Pockets (available separately) can be added for expanded front-of-bike storage capacity without compromising rider positioning.

Giant Loop’s Fandango and Diablo Tank Bags are also incredibly versatile, fitting virtually any dirt bike, snow bike, enduro, dual sport, adventure, or street motorcycle make and model.

And despite rugged components, such as YKK zippers, heavy-duty fasteners and reflective perimeter trim, the tank bags weigh less than 2.5 lbs total. All Giant Loop products are backed by a limited lifetime warranty against defects.

The Diablo Tank Bag provides 6 liters (370 cubic inches) of packable volume. Weight with included Dry Pod is 2 lb. 3 oz. (1 kg.). Available in black (DTB21-B) or gray (DTB21-G), USA MSRP is $250.

The Fandango Tank Bag provides 8 liters (490 cubic inches) of packable volume. Weight with included Dry Pod is 2 lb. 5 oz. (1.0 kg). Available in black (FTB21-B) or gray (FTB21-G), USA MSRP is $260.
