Touratech’s Zega Pro Panniers Receive Key Updates for 2016

Touratech's flagship panniers raise the bar even higher with key updates.

Published on 04.27.2016

Touratech’s top-of-the-line Zega Pro panniers have been a popular choice for globe-trotting adventure riders ever since their introduction in 2009. Their combination strength, durability, low weight and unique features make them some of the best panniers available on the market. The German-based company is always looking for ways to improve its motorcycle accessories and now Touratech is making their Zega Pro panniers even better.

Improvements start with a new state-of-the-art manufacturing process that eliminates the welds in the corners. By eliminating the welds and using one solid piece of material, the boxes are stronger than ever before. This also makes them easier to repair in the field if you have an impact and need to pound out a dent.

The lid seal has also been re-engineered so that the lower lip has a plateau shape that locks into a wider and deeper recess. This makes the box lid-engagement much more positive and strengthens the box when closed. In addition, the lid of the new Zega Pro panniers has been updated to make opening and closing smoother and comes pre-drilled for attaching optional handles. The lid handle holes also come sealed to ensure they remain completely water tight.

By eliminating welds in the corners and re-engineering the lid seal, the new Zega Pro panniers are now made stronger then ever.

Even better, the new updates don’t come with a price increase. The “Next Generation” Zega Pro panniers are currently available through Touratech’s website.
