AltRider Hemisphere Soft Panniers combine ultimate functionality and extreme durability to create the most versatile pannier on the market. Hemisphere Soft Panniers are designed for larger adventure bikes and feature approximately 120 liters of storage space -- perfect for a Saturday ride or a multi-day trek far off the beaten path. AltRider aluminum tension hooks, along with Ballistic webbing and metal cam lock buckles create a fully secure attachment to bike. Watch the video.
The removable top kit is fastened with 2 metal cam-lock buckles and 1" webbing. The rugged design of the cam-lock buckles won’t allow any movement of the straps, regardless of riding conditions. The cam-lock strap system can also be used to secure a multitude of other items -- haul whatever your adventure requires.
Both side compartments of the Hemisphere Soft Panniers are designed to keep the contents dry in the most extreme riding conditions. Custom dry-bags with a roll top closure fit inside a compartment with an additional roll-top closure creating a double barrier that is impervious to the elements. The 2 dry bags are perfect for your items like clothes, sleeping bags, electronics, etc that need to stay completely dry. Because these items are lightweight, they can be stored high on the bike without sacrificing handling.
The soft panniers also feature lower compartments with removable waterproof dry-bags for storing heavier adventure essentials -- tools, camp stoves or other hefty items. Storing these heavier items closer to the ground maintains the handling of the motorcycle, while protecting your lighter items from accidental damage. Drain holes are strategically located to allow water to drain from the exterior holster while the custom dry-bag stays dry and secure.
The waterproof compartments of the Hemisphere Soft Panniers are constructed from 1050D ballistic nylon sewn over vinyl coated polyester. Seams are sewn using military spec stitching and fully taped on waterproof compartments. Dry-bag inserts feature a roll top closure that is secured with burly 1.5" Delrin buckles, fully isolating the contents from the elements, and allowing easy opening and closing even with gloves on. Reflective logos on either side of the bag improve visibility and safety in low-light and nighttime riding conditions.
