Uncompromisingly designed for heavy-duty use, the new Extreme Edition complements Touratech's waterproof soft luggage. Indestructible and eye-catching in design, the new bags are loyal companions for travelling tourists looking for real adventure.
Dosing the right amount of gas on steep climbs, choosing the right track in the ford, laying the perfect line around boulders and washing on the single trail - adventurous motorcyclists know that a permanent focus on the essentials is crucial to the success of their challenging businesses. This applies to both a weekend off-road adventure as well as a world tour. Away from the tarmac, behind every corner, behind every hilltop, situations can lurk that require clear action and perfect preparation. Indecision, compromise and laissez-faire will sooner or later lead to failure.
This clear focus applies not only to the motivation of the rider, but is also indispensable when designing equipment for adventurous tours. The contents must not get wet, not even if a bag is flooded for a long period of time in the event of a fall into a stream. Fixings and top material must not tear, even if there is solid contact with undergrowth or rocks. Last but not least, the operation must be so simple that the necessary equipment is quickly at hand even in difficult situations.
Focused on the essentials - this is how the soft luggage items of the new Extreme Edition line present themselves. "You only find elements in these products that have a clearly defined advantage," explains Product Manager Dan Prume. Thanks to this classic form-following function approach, the new soft bags have an eye-catching technical style. Because functions with visible attributes correspond to these parts, these parts have enough for heavy-duty applications.
And the core impression of the new products starts with the feeling. The extremely technical surface not only feels robust, it also stands for extraordinary strength and durability. All items of luggage in the EXTREME Edition are made from a three-layer laminate that combines waterproofness with abrasion and tear resistance and also gives the products the necessary rigidity.
The textile material is robustly sewn, all seams are carefully sealed. The high-quality zips are fitted with tight sealing lips, so that even in heavy rainfall no water gets in. Fastening is as easy as it is safe on all models - even in the toughest off-road conditions. An additional advantage: Compared to rigid luggage solutions, the risk of injury in the event of a fall is greatly reduced.
The interior of all items of luggage in the EXTREME Edition is bright yellow. Of course yellow is the colour of the Touratech. But here too, no design element is without a function. Because the bright contrasting colour makes it much easier to find even smaller utensils than in a "black hole".
With the EXTREME Edition's highly functional luggage, adventurous motorcyclists get the perfect material for adventures that get tough.
