Kriega equipment is designed and engineered in Britain by extremely talented and experienced motorcycle enthusiasts and constructed using only the most durable premium materials, then manufactured to exacting standards.
Kriega backpacks are designed specifically for motorcyclists. As well as being incredibly tough and highly practical, they utilize a number of unique design features, which cater for the very different ergonomics involved in riding a bike. Features such as the exclusive, adjustable QUADLOC, click-in / click-out, chest harness, which transfers weight away from the rider’s shoulders and affords unprecedented freedom of movement, makes carrying your gear a joy, rather than a burden.
Kriega Universal System bike packs are designed to offer ultimate adaptability in a hardwearing and stylish package. These motorcycle luggage systems will fit motorcycles as diverse as Ducati superbikes, BMW Dual Sport machines or KTM Enduro beasts. Advanced design makes them ideal for transporting almost any kind of cargo and keeping it 100% waterproof and dustproof Kriega motorcycle luggage has been tested in the most extreme conditions, including the Dakar rallye and Baja 500. Not to mention the daily commute!
And of course, all Kriega packs benefit from an unprecedented 10-year warranty against material or manufacturing faults.
Kriega quality speaks for itself. But if you have yet to experience the best in road and off-road motorcycle backpacks, hydration systems, luggage and accessories, you don’t have to take our word for it… Kriega kit wins pretty much every group test and award it is put in for and our site contains just small selection of the amazingly positive reviews from motorcycle magazine journalists, competitors and real-world road and off-road riders. However a simple web search will reveal countless more happy customers.
We are extremely proud to have a very loyal following of Kriega brand addicts (including many extreme users, such as Adventure and Enduro riders) and if you talk to any of them, we are sure that they will tell you just how much faith they have in Kriega kit.
