The ultimate objective of SHAD was to develop a new concept of expandable top case, whose interior volume can be extended at the user’s will.
The technical challenges that we considered were:
1.-A maximum capacity for 2 Enduro helmets. Currently it does not exist any other aftermarket top case with these features and adaptable to a large number of motorcycle models.
2.- Design a multiple adjustable system, with at least 3 selectable positions and very easy to manage, being able to choose 3 different capacities without effort, in a few seconds.
3.- Maximize product durability. In other adjustable models available in the market, the lock system extends and contracts in solidarity with the top case, so the mechanism supports a greater wear. In SHAD we have designed a locking that does not swing with the cover, but is located in a fixed point of the structure. With this innovation, a more efficient and durable product is achieved for the end user.
4.-Achieve high dynamic performance, optimizing weight and aerodynamics in any of the three volumes. The new Expandable case uses a structural frame, as the one developed for SH36 side cases, which guarantees high rigidity while minimizing the weight of the set. In addition, a significant reduction in the complexity of the regulation mechanism also contributes to this reduction in weight.
As a result, the case is the lightest in its category, greatly improving the driving of the motorcycle.
This serie of innovations has allowed us to patent the new Expandable SH59X and SH58X cases, making them unique and exclusive in the market.
