Kriega debuts R20 Rucksack

Motorcycle Accessory

North American Kriega distributor Scott Conley announced his partnership with RawHyde Adventures, through which Kriega will feature its R20 rucksack at the 2010 Adventure Rider Challenge April 29th through May 2nd at Castaic Lake, California.

Each lucky motorcycling participant will be the first in North America to experience (and take home) an R20 rucksack – the perfect Kriega pack for enduro motorcycle, street bike and mountain bike riders – as well as a hydration system.

UK-based Kriega is known internationally for their rucksacks and has long been a favorite brand of European motorcycle enthusiasts and members of the press with the company’s innovative, patented Quadloc harness system, superior quality materials, overall fitment and durability.

Kriega products are designed specifically for motorcyclists, both in terms of features and performance, centered around the ergonomics of wearing a pack while riding – which is completely different than wearing one while standing and walking. The company promises that a correctly adjusted Kriega rucksack will outperform any other backpack on the market, period.

"Kriega is known internationally for its innovative harness system called Quadloc that carries the load on the hips and chest, transferring the load off your shoulders so you don’t get that neck strain you get with so many other bags," says Conley. "Since the R20 is a more compact bag, Kriega fashioned a Quadloc LITE harness to fit the needs of the enduro and mountain bike set, and it’s really quite brilliant."

The R20 is part of a modular product system, being the perfect complement to Kriega’s waterproof US-5 or US-10 packs. It has a 20-liter capacity, front and back 3M reflective patches, an internal reservoir pocket with compression and internal zip mesh pocket. The main compartment measures 18.5"h x 11"w x 5.9"d. The R20 is available now, with an MSRP of $119.00. To order call 480-782-9300 or visit
