Givi V35 Monokey panniers

Post by Throttled » Thu Nov 22, 2012 8:54 pm

Bought July 2012, came with bike. Mine are marked Kawasaki, but they are Givi V35s. They start about £260 on the internet, the frames start at about £100.

GOOD

The monokey system of one key to lock them and then lock them to the frame works well.
Waterproof, sturdy, feel very solid.
They are a good size, 34l each, which I find is a supermarket bag for life stuffed full with room for other small items.

MEDIUM

Initially they are a pain to open and close and fit to the rack, but with use that got easier.
I am going to get the optional inner bags to make it easier to pack and carry stuff and so items do not fall out when you open them.

BAD

The optional paint protection stick on stuff is a pain to fit and marks, so what is the point?
