The TRAX ADVENTURE ALUMINIUM PANNIERS and TOP BOXES by SW-MOTECH represent the latest advancement in motorcycle luggage technology.

These Aluminum Side and top cases are engineered in Germany with an emphasis on security, strength and ease of use.

Designed  for the adventure motorcyclist who is looking for a rugged and great looking, long-distance enduro touring pannier set.

By employing unique pannier construction technologies such as cold metal transfer (CMT), robot welding and fully automated punch riveting, you can be assured that the SW Motech Trax Adventure pannier system will be a reliable companion on any terrain, be it a city cruise, rugged off road trail or a cross continent tour.

Attention to detail does not end there however. The pannier lid has been designed like a sandwich. Fiber reinforced corners (with integrated tie points and carry handles) make up the first layer, followed by a sturdy , deep drawn aluminum lid that rests on the frame construction. In this way the maximum rigidity possibly is achieved for this component . It also allows for optimal space usage (within the lid) as more accessories (see below) can be accommodated.

The main body section of the pannier is also deep drawn and stamped for additional strength while the unit is completely robotic welded ensuring it is water and dust proof. Unique pierce rivets further ensure a tight seal.

This 3 D seamless construction increases the strength considerably over conventional pannier systems and distributes it across a larger surface area, in case of a fall.

SW-Motech are the only pannier manufacturers that employ these advanced production methods.

Benefits of seamless welding & pierce riveting in pannier construction

#1 represents normal rivets which are proud of the surface and can allow for the ingress of water.

#2 shows sectional pieces that are riveted together. This method not only reduces the strength of a pannier but will also allow water to enter your luggage.

#1 with pierce rivets. Pierce rivets avoid perforation of the wall material and therefore ensure there are no weak spots for moisture ingress. This rivet technology is the same used to construct the frame of an Audi TT.

#2 : Robotic seamless welding ensures that the side carcass of the pannier is one continuous piece for additional strength and water resistance.
