New from Givi

In this day and age of gadgets and the like of

all sorts that we generally can’t live without

and have to lug with us everywhere, here are a

couple of cool ideas from the guys at DMD for

some mobile storage solutions. Check out www.

dmd.co.za for your local stockist and pricing.

Firstly we have the GIVI ST607 an expandable

22 litre thermoformed saddle bag suitable for

most motorcycles. This is a great tail pack that

you can quickly strap onto to the rear seat of

most motorcycles has 22 litres worth of storage

and a nifty shoulder strap to carry it around with

and has the following features as standard

• Reflective print for improved visibility

• Expandable to 26 litre

• Waterproof fluorescent removable rain cover

built into the rear pocket

• Mesh pocket inside the lid

• Side pockets

• Handle with rubber inserts

• Shoulder strap

• Universal fitting with 4 straps

It is manufactured within REACH

recommendations from the following materials

• High tenacity 1200D / PVC polyester

• Thermoformed EVA coated with anti-scratch

PU (Polyurethane)

• UV TESTED materials

Next up is the Givi ST 608 thermoformed

3 litre leg bag, with the following features as


•Adjustable waist straps

• Possibility to hook the bag directly to a belt or

trouser loop

• Elasticated and adjustable leg straps

• Internal flaps to guarantee the stability of the


• Reflective print for improved visibility

• Rain cover

• Three inner pockets (one meshed, one with zip

closure and one with a smartphone holder).

And is also pretty much made from the same

materials and to the same exacting specs as the

tail bag above.

Then there is the Givi GRT 710, a monster

bum bag that we like quite a lot. Givi themselves

describe it as a portable pouch with a

compartment for tools, a bottle holder and a

waterproof mobile phone holder. It looks ideal

for the extreme adventure rider or enduro racer

to carry a couple of spares or medical kit and

some tools and a bit of extra water. As mountain

bike riders as well we like the design of this
