A few rough photos from our video shoot. Yes, that is the big top box. Yes, a smaller one is available. :)

Also, if you have an R1200GS Adventure, we're looking for your help! Please PM me or give the shop a call - we're looking for a Beta Tester!

Nothing from Globescout yet, but we documented drilling them - it's actually pretty easy. I expect to have the video edited and posted online later this week. (if you PM me, I'll give you the gist) We're finalizing our import plan now, and we're making every effort to offer these both drill to install and pre-drilled.

No hurry, I am waiting on BMW to ship me my bike from Germany, hopefully by the time it arrives you'll have official instructions and videos. My panniers are still stilling in the garage, can't wait to install them :(

We've found our R1200GS tester! We have one final opening for someone with a 2013 F800GS. Please PM me or call the shop for more details.

Nice looking bags. They look like a lot of thought was put into the design.

From the looks of them the assembly is done using rivets, and I assume some kind of sealing adhesive. This looks like a reasonably stong design, and nice accessories too.

Do the bags come with the mounting hardware (not the mounts)?

Also, I assume these were available overseas previously, how long have they been out, and any links to reviews and crash survivability?

Thanks,

Jim

You're right, Jim. They are riveted together and sealed in the process.

They come with mounting hardware (pictures below) and we can get alternate hardware to allow installation onto Hepco and Becker, Touratech, Holan, or any other 16mm or 18mm tube setup.




This is an updated, second generation design for 2013. The first generation were largely the same, but had different latching and sealing components. The surround under the pannier lid was plastic - that is now aluminum.




The latch in the prior generation was something that was pretty much off the shelf. It's now something that has a considerable amount of thought behind it - and is different than anything else on the market. When it closes, it 'latches' securely in the closed position and compresses the seals together to keep water and dust out. The hook from the lid also keeps the lid attached to box itself when it's open on the other side. The best two latching systems on the market were on the Zega Pro and the R1200GS OEM panniers. This is different, and better than both, IMHO.




The market for these bags prior was primarily in the Middle East, Brazil, and South Africa. Feedback that I've seen was very encouraging, with the primary issues revolving around the seal and latches, both which were addressed. We're also quite impressed with the manufacturer so far. Zero language barrier, accurate estimates on ship and in-transit times, packaging that is Apple level quality, and just overall super friendly. Having worked with a few not-so-good organizations in the past, they're really a breath of fresh air.

Does this help?

Crap you were looking for a gs tester?! I opened this up and loved the look of these would have been awesome to help bring these to market by testing em out for the masses

Maybe next time. Looking forward to getting a set of these

It does! Very thorough explanation of the old issues and new components. I really like the look, and I definitely like the latches and how they are "captired" so they can't be easily pried loose.

I'm pretty impressed. Looks like they will work easily with any tube type flat rack system.

Thanks for the info!

Jim

Totally agree with what Rob has said, the build quality, latching mechanism is top notch! The packaging of every item was meticulously done. Can't wait to install these!

Sorry for the crappy cellphone pics in incandescent lighting:
