ELEPHANT. The ELEPHANT tank bag is still convincing BMW motorcyclists on all continents with its well thought-out details. It is extremely hard-wearing and adaptable and has proven itself very well. Regardless of whether it is a card slot, photo insert or cooler bag, there is no area of application that it cannot cover. Wunderlich has continuously improved the all-rounder, so that over time it has matured into a legendary classic, an original.
Now the Ringeners have added a newly developed generation of tank bags and bags to the tried and tested ELEPHANT line. It differs from the original in terms of style and the fabrics used. The high demands on quality and functionality also set standards for the new line.
New: The »ELEPHANT« DRYBAGs. Puristic. Waterproof.
The DRYBAG series. All bags and the tank bag of the ELEPHANT DRYBAG series are characterized by the reduced, puristic and extremely clear design with a high recognition value. They are constructed absolutely watertight, they are UV-stable, robust and durable.
As with the traditional ELEPHANT, CORDURA® is used here in the 500 version. Its fine weave structure underlines the puristic appearance of the new series. A durable TPU layer is laminated on the inside of this high-quality technical fabric to ensure waterproofness and dimensional stability. All seams and doublings are carefully welded watertight. The zippers are neatly made and waterproof and dustproof. They are easy to use.
On the top, the DRYBAG bags are closed with an additional, integrated protective cap, which is manufactured in the same way as the bags themselves. It covers the top of the bags as well as the zippers. This construction ensures absolute watertightness. On the upper side, it has a versatile mounting system that is comparable to the military MOLLE system and consists of regularly arranged oval openings and loops. Additional pockets can be arranged and fixed individually here in a simple, secure manner.
The dimensionally stable bags offer secure hold and protection for luggage and they do not flap even at high speeds. They therefore do not cause any unpleasant, speed-related fluttering noises, especially because no additional waterproof hood is required for driving in the rain.
With the DRYBAG series, Wunderlich currently offers a tank bag, a bench and pannier bag as well as top bags for suitcases.
