Note: A 3/4" lip makes the opening on all boxes 1-1/2" smaller than box measurement. This lip provides a watertight seal and the strongest in the industry pannier.
All of the Happy Trails Panniers have a Canyon Cut on them. See description below.
The Teton Panniers
have two other options, Clif Cut
and Exhaust Cut
(shown below) is a term describing a 1.5" - 45 degree cut-out on the inside (tire side) of the pannier. It is designed for bikes with wide protruding exhaust to create a more symmetrical weight distribution when panniers are mounted and loaded. For bikes with asymmetrical racks it keeps the load on the exhaust side box as close as possible to the center of the bike. This also allows for a wider lid opening. For bikes with symmetrical racks the Clif Cut option can also be used on both sides.
The Exhaust Cut
is a term describing a 1.5" - 90 degree cut-out on the inside (tire side) of the pannier. This option is used on BMW Oilheads.
