THE PREMIUM MOTORCYCLE CASE
THE PREMIUM MOTORCYCLE CASE
Our engineers ride motorcycles themselves. You can see that in every detail of the TRAX ADV aluminum cases: from the robust construction to the waterproof finish to the easy handling.
The lightweight TRAX ADV pannier system will take on any challenge, whether going for a quick ride across town or loading up for a rough cross-country expedition. This sturdy aluminum body has been built to handle any riding environment.
The TRAX ADV can cope with any driving situation: to ensure that cornering is no problem, we have heavily slanted the lower edge of the side cases. In addition, corners made of fiberglass-reinforced plastic protect the case wall from unwanted contact with the ground.
Aluminum is used as the material for a balanced bridge between lightness and stability. To keep wall thickness and weight as low as possible, side beads stiffen the lid, while the design embossing and stable weld seams stabilize the side wall.
As a result, the TRAX ADV combines premium quality with low weight: at 5.1 to 5.4 kilograms with a volume of 37 or 45 liters, the robust and practical aluminum side cases are among the lightest in their class.
Thanks to robot-assisted welding, punch rivets and replaceable seals, the robust TRAX ADV aluminum cases are 100% dust and waterproof. And every single case has to prove this in a test procedure at our company. Design embossing and welded edges give the TRAX ADV aluminum cases with a wall thickness of 1.5 mm stability and their unmistakable appearance.
To ensure that not a drop of water or a speck of dust reaches the luggage, attention must be paid to every detail, from the weld seam to the riveting process to the last punch rivet: The well thought-out housing design of the TRAX ADV reduces the attack surface for water and dust.
Robot-assisted welding is used to manufacture the aluminum body. This allows waterproofing and stability to be achieved with a thin seam. The plastic elements are attached using punch rivets. The wall material is not penetrated in the process - there are no entry gaps for water.
The attachment of the lid and screws is particularly critical for the tightness of a case. In the TRAX ADV, special seals seal the drill holes, and a specially developed sealing geometry is used for the waterproof shoulder connection to the lid.
When developing the TRAX ADV, one requirement was clearly in the foreground: to build a case that meets all the demands of everyday driving - and at the same time is so easy to handle that assembly, loading, mounting and dismounting are child's play.
Aluminum does not rust, yet the material oxidizes and abrasion can occur. Before that, the outside and inside of the cases are protected by anodizing and powder coating, which also makes cleaning easier.
The TRAX ADV cuts a fine figure not only while riding. This is evident from the practical quick-release fastener to the removable lid and the well thought-out retaining system. The TRAX ADV comes with a flexible carrier system and sturdy aluminum handles for convenient attachment and removal. The lid with opening limitation can be conveniently opened by quick-release fastener even on the bike. For easy loading and unloading, the aluminum top can also be completely removed.
Locking and unlocking are also easy to do. As a practical accessory, there are padded TRAX ADV inner bags with carrying handle and volume expansion. The TRAX ADV can be attached to any EVO or PRO side carrier; suitable adapters are also available for mounting on older carriers and Givi and Hepco & Becker luggage holders. Attachment to the original carrier of the BMW R1200 GS Adventure is also possible in this way.
As a carrier, the original QUICK-LOCK system from SW-MOTECH offers numerous advantages - the versatile packing system can be quickly removed for riding without panniers and combines perfect fit with maximum flexibility.
Attaching the QUICK-LOCK EVO and PRO side carriers to the motorcycle requires only the one-time installation of the inconspicuous mounting parts. The carrier can then be attached and removed in seconds using a quick-release fastener.
The side carrier is already prepared for mounting the TRAX ADV side case: The mountings of the adapter set are simply screwed into the carrier frame, and the case can be attached.
The EVO and PRO side carriers provide secure support for side cases from SW-MOTECH, Givi/Kappa, Hepco & Becker, Krauser and Shad as well as the SysBag 15 and SysBag 30 bag - the matching adapter kits are available separately. The PRO side carrier's numerous functional holes allow RotopaX canisters and other accessories to be attached.
The PRO side carrier is the further development of the popular and successful EVO side carrier. It is even more robust, designed even closer to the vehicle, even more versatile. Just the right thing for those who love long tours and challenging off-road rides.
From the additional bag to the spare canister - so that everything is quickly at hand for the short refill stop or the relaxed break, there are the matching accessories for the TRAX ADV aluminum cases.
Matching holder sets offer space for UN-approved gas cans and sturdy aluminum drinking bottles. To ensure that more storage space is available and that every centimeter is used, suitable inner pockets are also available for the case lid, which can be easily opened when the case is hung up. An inexpensive alternative is to use a highly flexible lid net. If everything needs to be on board for the tour, sometimes even three large suitcases do not offer enough storage space. Therefore, the waterproof expansion bag is available to match the TRAX ADV side cases.
Reliable waterproofing plays a central role for a touring case. That's why we designed the TRAX ADV - and put it through its paces. The aluminum case had to withstand thousands of test kilometers in Alaska as well as an extensive test program at the factory. Our harshest critics are our own engineers: Long before a product goes on sale, we put it through its paces in practical use. For the TRAX ADV, this also meant facing a 2,000-kilometer tour through Alaska - over highways, dust roads and through water. The management and development team returned from the test drive with dirty machines, dry luggage and beaming faces.
The motorcycle cases passed all the challenges we presented the TRAX ADV with, both on and off the road, without a hitch. The clear conclusion from the test program: the robust premium system is ready for the next adventure. Long before a product goes on sale, we put it through its paces in practical use. For the TRAX ADV, this meant facing a 2,000-kilometer tour through Alaska under the critical eye of the development team.
The Alaskan landscape leaves lasting impressions and whets the appetite for more: For a week, the test tour took the SW-MOTECH team over long gravel highways, narrow forest trails and winding off-road tracks. Just no wet socks! The TRAX ADV passed every test with stoic composure: All luggage remained dry throughout the entire tour, even when the machines were staring at dirt and water.
