The NEW OS-38 Soft Pannier has all the same design features as the best-selling OS-32 Soft Pannier with an additional 6 litres of capacity and a 40mm wider profile. Designed to pair up with an OS-32 or OS-22 for bikes with off-centre pannier frames or to be used as a pair of OS-38s for the maximum carrying capacity.
The OS-38 Soft Pannier shares many of the features of traditional ADV hard luggage with the added benefits of durability and safety for riding in demanding environments where there will be the inevitable scrape with the terrain.
The structured box shape allows for effortless packing and load control. The waterproof roll-top closure and removable white liner guarantee pack contents remain protected from the elements.
Mounting and dismounting OS-Soft Panniers to the bike takes less than a minute with two quick release straps and buckles. The same straps compress the pack firmly in position. No extra tie-down straps are required.
Constructed from the highest quality materials including ultra-abrasion resistant Hypalon + 1000D Cordura®, heavy-duty webbing and aircraft grade alloy buckles.
Offering two easy fit options, either traditional 'over the seat' saddlebag format using OS-STRAPS or as a single pannier by hooking-on to a specially designed OS-PLATFORM.
(both sold separately)
The OS-38 is the base for various add-on options with 16 ‘hook-on’ points. Choose either 6 or 12 litre OS-PACKS to mount on the top and/or front or back, to build up a bespoke luggage system to suit your type or trip length.
A reinforced handle assists carrying heavy loads off the bike. Plus an optional OS-SHOULDER STRAP can be hooked on to convert to a shoulder bag.
A security cable block provides a solid mounting point to cable-lock the pack to the bike frame to stop the opportunist thief.
Hi-Vis details front and rear add an extra safety element for low-light riding.
The OS-38 requires pannier frames to be fitted to the bike.
These are model specific, and available as accessories from bike manufacturers or other aftermarket suppliers.
Once fitted there are 2 options to fit the OS-38
1. Traditional ‘over the seat’ saddlebag format, using OS-STRAPS
2. Fixing a specially designed OS-PLATFORM to the frame and mounting the OS-38 to the platform.
Kriega is a British company from Chester. Kriega was founded in 1999 when Dom Longman and Michael Cottam, who had a background in outdoor kit, drew on their love of motorcycling to build a company that would design and make tough, well-made motorcycle luggage of the highest quality. All Kriega products are designed in-house, with an emphasis on hard-wearing quality and ease of use.
Kriega received a Ride kit award in 2011 as recognition for their long-standing commitments to quality luggage and accessories. After receiving the award, design director Dom Longman said, "We invest a lot of time in design and testing because we're not a fashion brand. We build things to last and don't release anything until its right." Some other manufacturers think of luggage as a simple accessory, buy their range from China, rebrand the cheaply-made luggage as their own brand, and sell the end product as though it were designed and made entirely within the company.
Talking about the Kriega backpack range, Dom attributes its popularity to the way in which the weight seems to disappear when wearing it. "We worked hard to design a strap system that took all the strain out of the shoulders and neck so that it was comfortable to wear over long distances."
