TORRANCE, CA - May 31, 2007
Pelican™ Products’ high-impact, watertight Protector™ Cases have been chosen as a key component of Adventure Motorcycle Equipment’s extreme Caribou Luggage solution for several prominent Adventure Touring motorcycle models.
“Using our case as motorcycle side-luggage goes to show just how versatile Pelican Protector™ Cases really are. Our tough-as-nails Protector Cases combined with Adventure’s innovative custom bike-luggage designs is a win-win situation for tourers everywhere,” said Matt Miller, Director of Sales for Pelican.
“After breaking my stock storage cases, I needed a tougher solution for side luggage on my bike. Since Pelican Cases are the first name in equipment protection, their toughness offered the most durable case on the market,” said Roger Pioszak, President of Adventure Motorcycle Equipment. “I’m confident that their legendary toughness will take any punishment today’s motorcycle tourers can dish out.”
With MSRP starting at $730, the Adventure Motorcycle Caribou Luggage system features a custom ¾” Square 16 GA tube steel rack designed to work with motorcycle models that include BMW R1200GS, 1150GS, 1100GS, and F650GS, the Kawasaki® KLR 650, the Buell® Ulysses and the Suzuki® V-Strom™ 650 and V-Strom 1000. Secured and mounted to the frame with NEMA 4 waterproof key locks, the custom side brackets turn the two Pelican 1550 Protector Cases into detachable suitcases, which offer a combined usable storage space of more than 3,000 cubic inches. A third case can also be added as rear top case to give the system even more capacity. Additionally, inner storage bags and tool kit cases are available for all systems to offer superior organization.
Pelican Protector™ Cases boast a fully-stackable, trademarked “Dual Band” design and a cell-core construction that protects sensitive equipment from some of the harshest conditions on Earth. Additional standard features include a lid equipped with a polymer o-ring for a dustproof/waterproof seal and an automatic Gore-TEX® pressure equalization valve that will stop moisture from entering the case and prevent vacuum lock so it’s easier to open the case at any altitude. To ensure easy and immediate access, most cases in the line feature double-throw latches that have been tested to a failure threshold of nearly 400 pounds, but open with a light pull.
As with all Pelican products, their cases are backed by a Legendary Lifetime Guarantee of Excellence: “You break it, we replace it…forever.”™
