Google has so far failed me.

Hey Geoff, don't let that spoil your purchase. If they work for you, they work. If they don't, well, change them. From what I've seen the mounts are the weak point BUT I've also seen that the panniers fall off in a spill and, therefore, don't get damaged. You'll love the bike.
