Giant Loop Launches New Quick-Release Pannier Mounting Plates

Giant Loop's popular pannier mounts get key updates and a lower price.

Published on 05.27.2019

For 2019, Giant Loop has announced the update of its 2018 “Nifty 50” award-winning Pannier Mounts. Improvements include a lower retail price ($50 savings), wider range of adjustability, improved finish quality and additional rigidity. According to Giant Loop, the result is an ultralight, rugged, stable, quick-connect/release, lockable solution for motorcycle soft luggage and equipment.

Constructed of aircraft grade aluminum with a black anodized finish, stainless steel hardware and a key lock mechanism, GL Pannier Mounts weigh less than 4 lbs. per pair, including spare keys. In keeping with the company’s minimalist “go light, go fast, go far” design philosophy, GL Pannier Mounts feature just two moving parts; an anchor clasp and a lock. Both of which are accessible without having to reach inside motorcycle luggage.

Although specifically designed for Giant Loop’s rack-mounted motorcycle soft luggage, Round The World Panniers and MotoTrekk Panniers, GL Pannier Mounts offer remarkably versatile solutions for attaching gear to motorcycle side luggage racks. Pre-drilled holes provide easy installation of RotoPax® gas cans, water cans and accessories, and strap slots enable virtually any other gear, tools or bags, to be secured to the GL Pannier Mounts with Giant Loop’s heavy-duty stretch polyurethane Pronghorn Straps.

GL Pannier Mounts are currently compatible with most side luggage rack designs featuring flat, vertical hoops constructed of 16-18mm round tubing. Examples include Adventure Moto X-Frames, Givi Outback, Touratech, KTM Powerparts (1090, 1190, 1290), and Outback Motortek pannier racks. With the optional adapter, Pannier Mounts also fit BMW’s OE side luggage racks on the R1200GS Adventure, R1250GS Adventure and F850GS Adventure models. Sold as a set of two with four keys included, GL Pannier Mounts cost $249 MSRP (part number PNTM19) and $299 MSRP with the BMW GSA adapters (part number PNMT-GSA).


• Aircraft grade aluminum with anodized black finish.

• Includes stainless steel hardware kit to attach Giant Loop’s RTW Panniers.
• Adjustable hook and latch positions.
• Pre-drilled for Rotopax mount.
• Multiple webbing slots to anchor MotoTrekk Panniers or other gear.
• Thumbscrew prevents Pannier Mount from sliding on rack tubing.
