2014 ALTRIDER Luggage

It’s been a busy 6 months designing, testing and producing this collection of next-generation, waterproof luggage with my friends at ALTRIDER and we’re excited to finally share these pieces with the rest of the world.

We’ll be revealing the whole group here in this thread and will answer questions as we go.

The first piece is this sadddlebag design for dual sport/dirt bikes but will also strap right onto other ADV bikes like the KTM 950/990/1150, BMW Dakar 650, KLR and Husky TR 650 Terra.




Slim, tight and low - this kit will carry your gear securely without any special racks required.



New, tailored roll top design eliminates pesky, delicate zippers once and for all and is 100% waterproof (main compartment)!



Exterior stash pockets for commonly needed trail side tools/tube, tire irons and whatever else you need to access without opening up the main compartment - I can hardly wait to get a flat!







Thousands of hard, off-road riding has given us plenty of experience to know that lowering the load makes this layout ride excellent and yet not interfere with the riding position.

Reflective logo transfer is incredibly bright at night.




There’s lots more coming!

Thanks - It depends on how many rolls you use to close the main compartment but it will max out near 50 Liters (not including the exterior stash pockets).

Wachs

I'm considering an upgrade to the current luggage setup on my KTM 500.
Around 30 litres of waterproof capacity would be good, with as little as possible packed above seat height.

Do you have pics of the bag system rolled down to 30 litre capacity and mounted on a plated dirtbike ?

Like the design and roll top. Waiting for accusations and screams of theft from the giant loop die hard fan boys. :p

So as well as a improvised ice bucket, the Cordura's abrasion resistance protects the dry bag material of the main horse shoe bag in a spill. Nicely thought out evolution of your original design. If the ice bucket part of the system gets torn up after a bad pavement slide or something, will you allow owner's of the system to just purchase that part without the horse shoe bag?

Great question. It'd be a whole lot cooler if the rig was available alacarte-especially after damage from a tumble.
