EXPO news #2 | Shad SH58X expanding box | VIDEO
Top boxes are not very sexy or subtle, but sometimes you just need some additional dry, secure space to store your kit. The rest of the time you want a top-box to be as small, aerodynamic and unassuming as possible.
Meet the Shad SH58X – a top-box that can do all of those tricks.
Designers have worked for years on expanding luggage for motorcycles and scooters, but very rarely does it meet all of the requirements for security and ease of use.
Spanish firm Shad’s patented system allows for one top-box to be adjusted for three different volumes – 46, 52 or 58 litres. In easier-to-visualise terms, that’s everything from one open-face helmet at the smallest, to two MX helmets with peaks at the largest.
The wide dimensions of this box means it is best suited to maxi-scooters. Hopefully SHAD will expand (sic) the range to offer a narrower version better suited to smaller capacity scooters in the future.
The SH58X features:
- Supplied base-plate for attaching to back racks
- Quick release for removing entire case from baseplate
- Interchangeable coloured top covers
- Optional pillion backrest pads
- Optional soft, expandable inner bag
- 2-year warranty on all UK-supplied stock
The UK retail price is £319 including VAT and stock will be arriving in dealers in February 2017. For more details see Shad’s UK website
