The PRO tank ring
A REVOLUTION'S EVOLUTION.
A REVOLUTION'S EVOLUTION.
Enter the PRO tank ring. Our third and latest generation ring combines the strength of a locking mechanical attachment with patented magnet technology that makes the ring even easier to use.
Almost as if by magic, the small but powerful magnets guide the bag into place for the mechanical spring mechanism to snap shut with a satisfying and reassuring click. The tank bag is now securely attached to the motorcycle with one fluid movement. The PRO ring off ers the same strength and stability as previous rings suitable for high speeds on the highway or rough off-road use.
The PRO tank ring combines these two ingenious technologies into a fully developed system that continues to meet the requirements we feel an SW-MOTECH tank ring should have:
The PRO tank ring –
Note that the tank ring must be ordered separately from the bag because it is bike specific – most of the rings are $34.95 with some running slightly more for the bikes that need odd configurations to mount the ring.
The PRO tank ring perfectly combines the innovative power of two German companies: The locking mechanism of the
SW-MOTECH tank rings, which has been tried and tested for many years, can now be operated even more easily thanks to the magnetic guidance assistance from Fidlock technology. We didn't think we could make our cornerstone product even better, but the PRO tank ring represents yet another evolutionary leap for SW-MOTECH's ring attachment system.
After listening to our customers' feedback, we have made significant improvements to how the upper ring is positioned: The upper ring is pre-assembled on the tank bag along a guide rail, eliminating the need for any drilling or measuring. This also allows the customer to adjust the position of the bag on the bike as needed, such as when switching to another motorcycle.
The magnetic guide, developed by Fidlock, complements the already advanced SW-MOTECH mechanical latching system: The magnets guide the upper ring and bag into the the lower tank ring allowing the mechanism to snap shut. The magnets are strong enough to push the bag into the correct position without any fumbling for alignment. Fasten the tank bag in one simple step and ride off — your luggage is safe and secure with the PRO ring system.
It goes without saying that a SW-MOTECH tank ring has a tight and secure hold – but we'll say it anyway: Because the mechanical locking mechanism is still what secures the tank bag to the bike, the hold is rock solid. The magnets' job is to bring the two parts of the ring easily and precisely together. The robust fiberglass-reinforced plastic with its high-precision locking geometry ensures the tank bag remains firmly in place in all conditions. The basic locking mechanism remains the same – it's simply better now.
Our range of accessories makes the PRO tank bags even more attractive. Smartphones or tablets can be attached to the top of any PRO tank bag, thanks to the solid EVA plastic top fitted with MOLLE. The newly developed T-Lock mount secures smartphones in no time and turns the tank bag into a GPS mount.
