We offer 2 of the best case options available, the SKB 20 Liter and the SKB 40 Liter. When purchased as a combo kit these are great values because we do not charge any additional shipping for the case, shipping charges still apply to the Slider rack but it costs less to ship a rack than a case so that is a big win for the customer.
The SKB cases are made in USA and have great specifications and are lighter than comparable cases including the Pelicans.
We know Pelicans are great cases and we love them. If you have a Pelican you would like to use with out Slider system here are some recommendations.
Pelican 1450 is a popular case that is used with our system. The Pelican 1450 has strengthening ribs on the bottom of the case and require a special 1450 puck when used with our system. Simply put a note in your order at check out that you would like 1450 pucks with your kit and we will ship your kit with 1450 pucks.
Pelican 1500 is a popular case that is used with our system. The Pelican 1500 has strengthening ribs on the bottom of the case and require a special 1500 puck when used with our system. Simply put a note in your order at check out that you would like 1500 pucks with your kit and we will ship your kit with 1500 pucks.
Pelican 1550 is a great choice with our system, big and strong. In fact the initial testing of our Slider system was done with a Pelican 1500, loaded to the hilt and subjected to the roughest ATV trails we could find.
Other plastic cases, there are a lot of good case options that will work with our Slider system. We only have 2 requirements : 1) the case is a polypropylene injection molded type case 2) The bottom of the case has a 9 3/8” x 9 3/8″ flat surface for puck mounting.
Aluminum Cases will also work with our system, a flat bottom surface measuring 9 3/8″ x 9 3/8″ is required for puck mounting.
We do not recommend using cases that have an external length or width dimension over 22 inches and height dimension over 12 inches.
Always adhere to the motorcycle manufacturer’s rear carrier weight specifications.
