Kurt Caselli Foundation logoProtecting and Supporting the Lives of Off-Road Riders.

The Kurt Caselli Foundation was established in 2013. The focus of the foundation is the safety of riders and racers in the off-road motorcycling industry. While we understand the inherent elements of danger in this industry, we aim to help minimize this danger to the best of our ability. The foundation has a three-part mission that encompasses safety precautions for riders before, during, and after a racing career.

1. Before racing, we are committed to encouraging, developing, and standardizing safety precautions that will help minimize risk outside of the rider’s control.

2. During racing, we are committed to developing, establishing, and encouraging the use of safety equipment and policies to increase the safety of the riders.

3. After racing, we are committed to providing a safety net that allows and encourages former racers to further their education and reach career goals for themselves and their families.

The Tracker Packer represents a year-long collaboration between Giant Loop and the Kurt Caselli Foundation, with multiple Baja 1000 champ Quinn Cody providing direction and prototype testing.

Canadian rider and Overland Adventure Rally organizer Lawrence Hacking’s article recounting his experiences racing the Mongolian Rally appear in the February 2015 issue of American Motorcyclist magazine, published by the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA). He rode a 2014 Honda CRF 450X with Giant Loop’s MoJavi Saddlebag throughout the rally, and here’s what he wrote about it: “To lighten the load on myself, I used the Giant Loop MoJavi bags to carry the heavy items that I would likely need to finish, such as tools and a spare inner tube.”

Giant Loop Review: Siskiyou Panniers in Dirt Rider’s “DR Tested”

Dirt Rider Magazine‘s December issue features Giant Loop’s Siskiyou Panniers in a “DR Tested” long-term use review, written after using them in Baja and months of riding off-road and city commuting. Dirt Rider concludes: “Other than being super dusty, after months of use the Siskiyou Panniers are no worse for the wear and have served as an essential overnight riding gear pack as well as been a huge help with commuting duties. Also, since they are not bike-specific and are super adjustable, these could be the only panniers you’ll need — even if you have multiple bikes.”

Giant Loop’s Pronghorn Straps “Product of the Year – Under $25″ by Dirt Rider Magazine

Thank you Dirt Rider Magazine for naming Giant Loop’s Pronghorn Straps “Product of the Year – Under $25″!

Giant Loop Pronghorn Straps Dirt Rider Magazine Product of the Year

Giant Loop Pronghorn Straps Dirt Rider Magazine “Product of the Year- Under $25″

Dirt Rider writes: “We can always use straps, whether on the trail or just to secure the load in an overstuffed truck bed. These super simple, seemingly infinitely stretchable straps have held tight for hundreds of miles of off-road riding. They can secure a headlight, strap down a fender pack, hold down fully loaded panniers, and even hold a broken boot together.”
