Driven to provide products with components, tech and style that riders crave, Dowco has taken its Fastrax Elite series back to the design lab.
“Re-launching the Elite Series as the Backroads Series is part of the Dowco focus on keeping products fresh and relevant to the loyal group of sport and adventure tour riders,” said Dowco brand manager Jim Miller.
New styling elements consist of hi-viz internal liners, added reflectivity, stitching, updated styling and upgraded bag design and structure. Fully loaded, the bags are equipped with an electronics storage area with audio ports, hydration pack storage and external map pocket (tank bag only), waterproof zippers, attached sewn-in rain hoods, easily-deployed adjustable expansion, integrated carrying handles and backpack straps for easy transport, and universal strapping systems that make them easy to install on most bikes. The tank bag uses magnets and optional straps, so it can be used with plastic or metal gas tanks.
Fastrax Backroads bags are constructed from rugged 1680-denier polyester and feature a limited lifetime warranty.
MSRPs are as follows: Fastrax Backroads Tail Bag, $139.99; Fastrax Backroads Tank Bag, $159.99; and Fastrax Backroads Saddlebags, $199.99.
