Since their inception in 2003 Andy Strapz panniers have evolved in line with the demands of modern adventure riders. The name itself nods its lid to a mix of enduro and adventure.
Made in Melbourne from tried-and-crashed, 17oz, Aussie, Dynaproofed canvas, they are packed (pun intended, sorry) with new approaches to the existing features. The basics of the bags remain unchanged from those Andy made for himself all that time ago. If it ain’t broke…
Although the basics stood the test of time and Aussie riders, that doesn’t mean the nice little extras can’t be tweaked and improved. The side pockets are bigger with the rear closed via roll top. Front is the same mesh style of old but uses a special shock-cord loop to prevent water bottles bouncing out under the most severe conditions. Crashability, one of the key design briefs set by Andy, has also been improved by changing the side buckles to a low-profile ‘ladder loc’ buckle. Dustproof, highly water-resistant (Andy Strapz Linerz make a 100% waterproof system) and, most importantly, 100% tough.
Colour – charcoal black with reflective trim
Price – $468 a set plus freight (add $50 for a pair of Linerz)
