Flexible fuel storage cell for motorcycles
The nature of motorcycle riding often allows one to travel to remote regions, one of the reasons for making this sport so attractive. Traveling to far flung places often comes with its caveats, however, one of them being a lack of fuel. Another is the lack of space to carry fuel in a conventional “jerry “ type can. Jerry cans take up valuable space and, when empty, become a liability.
Thankfully, there is an alternative. Now you can easily extend your traveling range without having to fit an expensive long range touring tank. Designed for the military this 5L fuel cell is the ideal medium to carry extra fuel.
Strong enough to handle the worst conditions and flexible enough to be folded away, it presents an economic and lightweight (0.4 kg when empty) alternative to expensive additional hard tanks or cumbersome jerry cans.
Strong, light weight and easy to store. Simply fold or roll when emptied enabling storage in small confined areas, leaving you with more space when it is needed most.
Easily filled from any petrol pump, each cell has its own spout which fits into its own on-board dust free pouch, further saving space.
Various mounting options have been designed into the unit including 6 strong steel D Rings (suitable for Rokstraps) as well as integrated straps for securing on top of your panniers or rear luggage rack.
Feul Cell can be rolled or folded for extra versatility when storing.
5 Litre Fuel Bladder - Great for the adventure riders and dirt bike riders that needs to carry extra fuel. The Desert Fox has a clear plastic liner housed in a tough canvas bag. The canvas bag has mounting points to tie the cell onto your bike. The plastic liner is non-porous which means that fuel odours are not transmitted. Perfect for carrying any liquid.
The Desert Fox fuel bladder can take up to 5L of fuel, BUT in warm/hot conditions, it is best to fill it up to 4L an no more than 4.5L. When fuel heats, physics take over…fumes are created and the bag will expand – you have to allow space for that expansion. In fact, if riding on a very hot day with a full fuel bladder, consider allowing the fuel vapours that have built up, to escape from time to time.
The fuel bladder can be secured using the 6 metal ‘D’ rings. Cargo nets are also useful – when used within their limitations – to secure the fuel bladder.
The fuel bladder can be rolled up, to facilitate storage when on the bike, for periods where you do NOT need to use them.
