Our aluminum cleats are great tie-down options for both the Reckless 40 and Reckless 80 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.
Each kit comes with one cleat (bracket) and accompanying hardware for easy fastening to your bike. We use them on our plastics, placing them strategically based on different bike models to ensure fore and aft anchoring. Where to place them exactly is up to you and your individual bike model.
The Reckless 40 comes with two cleat kits. If you want to place your Reckless 40 on another bike or you don't have a top rear rack you may want to purchase two to four more cleat kits.
The Reckless 80 is generally used on larger bikes that have passenger foot pegs and a top rear rack which are 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 two cleat kits.
* Please note that we have had the cleats filed down and rounded slightly where the webbing rubs against the aluminum the most. Despite this please check your webbing for wear and adjust as necessary to save webbing from further damage.
