According to the new importer, Kriega has long been a favorite brand among European motorcycle riders and members of the press.

The company promises that a correctly adjusted Kriega pack will outperform any other backpack on the market.

It has a 30-liter capacity, measures 19.3 inches high, 11.8 inches wide and 8.3 inches deep, and features the Quadloc harness, CNC-machined T6 alloy buckles, organizer pockets and two water-resistant outer pockets. The main compartment is waterproof. The pack has adjusters at the hips and a closed-loop strap system up top, allowing it to fit a variety of riders.

“Kriega has only recently been made available in the U.S. and has been a bit of a secret until now,” Matrix Motosports’ Scott Conley stated in a news release. “Kriega offers an extensive line of backpacks, tank bags, waistpacks, fender packs, hydration packs and luggage, and we’re proud to say the new R30 is the most innovative bag Kriega has ever manufactured.”

All Kriega products come with a 10-year guarantee.
