The US-5 is a 5-litre capacity 100% waterproof tailpack. It’s an innovative design solution which can fit directly to the bike's subframe (see US Hook straps), without the need for unsightly racks or any additional mounting hardware. Supplied with all tail mounting straps. The US-5 can also be easily added onto any Kriega backpack or hydration pack using the supplied hook straps.
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.
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 90-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.
Fitting(Bike/fender): The US-5 packs now fit with the Kriega alloy hooks and have never been easier or quicker to take on and off, with no loose straps left on the bike. The ultra secure subframe fitting allows tailpack combinations of up to 90-litres and is particularly suitable for bolt-on seat pads and traditional one-piece seats (4 x web loops attach to the subframe and exit at the seat edge) Attach the 4 x alloy hooks to the loops and compress the pack down with the web adjusters. Secure the loose strap ends with the web tidy components and you're ready to go.
NB - US-packs can be mounted inline or across the seat. The US5 can also attach to Kriega backpacks and TANK with either the old style fitting straps or with the new alloy hooks. The US5 also includes 2 x bolt-on Hypalon loops to fit a dirtbike fender. For road bikes the standard 4 x subframe loops are used under the seat. See individual product pages for full fitting instructions.
Fitting(Backpack): Thread the 2 x fitting straps through the web-loops or square rings(depending on rucksack model). Thread ladderloc buckle and tighten US-5 down on to the pack.
