Kriega Cordura Lite Fabric

CORDURA® CONSTRUCTION

Woven with high tenacity 6,6 filament nylon yarns 420D CORDURA® LITE FABRIC has a water repellant coating and provides long-term durability with advanced tear, scuff and abrasion resistance.

Kriega YKK® Zips

YKK® ZIPS

Arguably the best zips in the world, renowned for their performance and durability. YKK® are the only high quality coil zips we use on our products.

Kriega Aircraft Grade

AIRCRAFT GRADE

All Kriega metal engineered parts are made from 6061-T6 aircraft grade, hardened aluminium alloy and the US-Hook Straps are no exception providing dependable strength where its needed.

Kriega Removable Liner

REMOVABLE LINER

The main waterproof compartment has a lightweight taped-seam liner held in place with a hook & loop strips. Easily removable for cleaning and white in colour to help with locating kit at the bottom of the pack.

Anti-Slip Mesh Base

Base anti-slip mesh also doubles as a pocket to store the shoulder and waist straps when the US-5 is attached to the bike. The shoulder strap connects to the large D-rings at each end of the pack and the waist strap connects to 2 fold away buckles at the corners of the mesh-pocket.

Kriega Hook and Loop Stap Set

Fitment Hardware Included

The US-5 uses the latest generation of fitting straps - the US-Hook straps. These are an extra secure subframe fitting kit which allows tailpack combinations of up to 40-litres. Easy on/off the bike with no loose straps left on the bike. Custom 6061-T6 alloy hooks attach to four discreet web loops located on the frame of the bike. Fitting method is particularly suitable for traditional one-piece seats and bolt-on seat pads/racks. US-packs can be mounted inline or across the seat.

Fitment Instructions

The US-5 tailpack is designed to fit most race-rep style pillion pads or regular single seats (attachment straps included). The pack is easily attached/removed by 4 x quick-release buckles. No extra bungees or rain covers are needed.

To fit using the supplied hook straps remove bike seat and locate the best mounting areas on the rear subframe. It may be necessary to slot the internal plastic tray if no subframe metalwork is exposed. Attach the 4x 20mm web loops securely to high strength areas of the frame. The 20mm loops are adjustable in length. Refit the seat with the web loops poking out from underneath and complete any necessary final adjustments of the straps.

Ensure the web is threaded back through the adjuster to lock-off the webbing (i.e. threaded through the plastic buckle three times). To fit the US-pack, hook the alloy hooks through the now installed web loops, place the pack on the seat and connect the top quick-release buckles and tension them and the bag on to the bike. Always use the 2 x strap keepers on the web to manage the loose ends. Please also ensure that the quick-release buckles are correctly 'clicked' home. With the Hook strap mounting system, the optional connector straps are not required.

NB - Some bikes already have web loops attached to the seat-pad/base. In this case we still recommend the fitting of the Kriega loops, as fitting to the subframe is far stronger than to the seat.

SUBFRAME LOOPS are supplied with all US Drypacks which work perfectly for most bikes, however some of the latest bikes do not have a visible subframe to mount them to. Therefore Kriega have produced a range of fitting kits to provide hook-on points for the following bikes:

  • DUCATI PANIGALE 899/1199
  • DUCATI PANIGALE 959/1299
  • DUCATI XDIAVEL
