Giant Loop Launches Next-Gen Diablo & Fandango Tank Bags

New versions redesigned to be more waterproof, user-friendly and rugged.

Published on 03.18.2021

After a two year development process, Giant Loop is launching the next generation Fandango and Diablo. The new tank bags preserve all of the qualities that make them popular among riders, while also improving function, style and construction. 

Featuring a hybrid construction of sewing plus radio-frequency (RF) welding, the new designs emphasize increased waterproofness while maintaining a low-profile shape that stays out of the rider’s way, a pliable yet rugged structure, and a quick, easy access to fuel fills.

The Fandango and Diablo provide quick and easy access to the fuel tank without removing the bag. Just partially unzip the tank bag from the harness and fill-up.

The Fandango and Diablo Tank Bags share the same design and construction, with the Fandango’s slightly taller profile delivering an additional 2 liters of packable volume. They keep essentials handy without interfering with the rider’s body position, whether seated or standing on the footpegs. The harness mounts over fuel fill, with concave shapes on the bottom of the tank bags to allow air vents to breathe. And for fill-ups, just zip it and flip it – no need to remove or remount anything.

Made from rugged Bomb Shell™ coated fabric with hybrid RF-welded and sewn construction, the Fandango and Diablo are designed to be completely waterproof, mudproof, snowproof, and dustproof when used with the included Tank Bag Dry Pod inner liner.

To organize essentials, an internal zippered mesh pocket with key clip is easily accessed under the lid, and an adjustable/removable divider includes organizers for cards and a pen or tire pressure gauge. On the exterior, an stretch mesh pocket accommodates ear plugs, bridge toll or other small items. The easy-access RF-welded waterproof clear map/smartphone lid pocket features an electronics cable pass-through, enabling on-bike charging and power inside the tank bag.

The Diablo Tank Bag provides 6 liters (370 cubic inches) of packable volume.

For convenience and security, the tank bags unzip from their harness, so riders can keep valuables with them when away from the bike, while the harness remains on the bike ready to go. With the harness’s integrated D-ring mounts, Giant Loop’s Pannier Pockets (available separately) can be added for expanded front-of-bike storage capacity without compromising rider positioning.

Giant Loop’s Fandango and Diablo Tank Bags are also versatile, fitting virtually any dirt bike, snow bike, enduro, dual sport, adventure, or street motorcycle make and model.

The Fandango Tank Bag provides 8 liters (490 cubic inches) of packable volume.

Despite rugged components, such as YKK zippers, heavy-duty fasteners and reflective perimeter trim, the tank bags weigh less than 2.5 lbs total. Both tank bags are available in black or gray. MSRP is $250 for the Diablo and $260 for the Fandango. And like all Giant Loop products, they are backed by a limited lifetime warranty against defects.

  2. I have owned a couple of these bags and they are a great bit of kit. Rain, mud, desert, beach, mountains of Asia to the Aussie outback, they do what is intended.
    Only complaint is the see-through top pocket is not UV stable. It starts to crack & break down after a couple of years use while the rest of the bag is still in great condition. I wrote to Giant Loop about this & the said, along the lines of “keep it out of the sun”. I don’t think that’s a good design feature as they’re made to sit on a touring bike that is, well, out in the sun all day.
    Let’s hope this has been address in the new models.
