Unique Cross-over seat and compression support.
Our load-carrying cross-over straps disperse weight evenly and compress the bags to allow access into tight places when riding those dual sport off-road trails.
The crossover straps ensure the total width of your bike is kept to a minimum and keeps the weight centred. The cross-over straps further assist with ensuring the outside of the bag does not droop and remains at the height level when initially fitted, eliminating the tendency to sway into the rear wheel of the motorcycle.
The HippoHip™ bags are made for enduro-adventure bike style riding and for the popular 1000cc+ Adv bikers, as it fits on most motorcycles and suits many different riding styles and preferences. True versatility.
The wide, over the seat support strap, connect with hook & loop to secure the bags to the motorcycle, yet it allows for a pillion to ride comfortably. Depending on your specific bike, this strap may also be installed underneath the seat.
