Our aluminum cleats are great tie-down options for all of our Reckless luggage systems. Straps can usually be attached to passenger foot-pegs or the top rear rack, but some bikes lack good tie-down points like this, so we designed these cleats to provide extra anchor points to keep your bag solidly in place.
This kit comes with two cleats (brackets) and accompanying hardware for easy fastening to your bike. We use them on our plastics, placing them strategically on different bike models, to ensure solid fore and aft anchoring. Where to place them exactly is up to you and your individual bike.
The Reckless 40 and Reckless 10 systems each come with two cleats. If you want to install one on another bike, or if you don't have a top rear rack, you may want to purchase one or two additional cleat kits.
The Reckless 80 is generally used on larger bikes that have passenger foot pegs and a top rear rack, whichare used as tie-down points, so we don't include them with the Reckless 80. If you are running your Reckless 80 on a bike without passenger foot pegs or the top rear rack,or want the angle of the tie-down to be different you may want to purchase a cleat kit.
I purchased these mounts on the recommendation of a friend who is an experienced off road traveller. The cleats and straps are a little expensive but the quality appears to be excellent for both the Cleat kits and straps. I am sure they will be perfect for my needs - to keep a toolkit mounted on the rear fender as opposed to being carried on my body!!
well needed piece of kit which i love just think it would be better as part of the reckless systems as standard i’ve reckless 80 mounted to a enduro bike well pleased 👍🏻
Good quality and design. Very useful for easy and fast fitting my bag :)
