This Glass-Filled Nylon mounting wedge is great for replacement or setting up a second bike.
Looking for an HDPE wedge? We no longer stock this item - please contact email@example.com for more information about how to upgrade your old frames and wedges and why we made the switch.
In July 2016 we switched from machining to injection molding for our Backcountry Pannier mounts. However the Scout pannier mounting system still uses HDPE. The two systems are not compatible. In other words, you cannot use a Nylon wedge with a HDPE mounting frame or vice-versa.
If you are buying extra/replacement wedges for newly purchased bags: the Backcountry 35 Pannier Kit comes with injection molded Glass-Filled Nylon mounts, the Scout 25 Pannier Kit comes with machined HDPE mounts. You will want to order the same type of wedges as the ones that come with your pannier kit (Backcountry 35 = Nylon, Scout 25 = HDPE).
*The first two pictures are the Glass-Filled Nylon Wedge, then the HDPE Frame and Wedge follow (for reference).
If you need to upgrade your Backcountry Panniers to glass-filled nylon please see our Retrofit Kit.
Thankfull I can get replacement parts
I have MM bags on my GS 650 which lives with my daughter in Seattle. We just did a 10 Day trip in BC Canada. We totally love the panniers and the system. We have had hard cases for years and would never go back. I love the versatility of the soft bags not to mention the softer landings when "less than vertical" happens. The system is very well thought out and as a designer I appreciate good design which has everything you need but nothing additional or frivolous. We love them so much we got a second set of wedges for our Africa Twin which lives with us in Vermont. Now we can hot swap bags between bikes. Very very happy... now if we could just solve the eating-dust problem.
Fits my backcountry bags to move them from my KTM to my Husky. Quality manufacturing and good fit!!!
Ordered and extra set of mounting wedges so I can use the panniers on multiple bikes. The way the mounting system is designed on the pannier system it's easy to switch from bike to bike. No screws or bolts to remove and reinstall, just flip the latch and reattach! Simple
