Designed for Enduro and touring adventure riders, the Trail 3 L Motorcycle Fuel Bladder is the ideal medium to carry extra fuel.

Suitable for the top of panniers, top boxes or where space is at a premium. Compact enough to fit into most hydro packs.

Trial 3L fuel bladder features:

  • Daisy chains and D-Rings allow the cell to be strapped in almost any position.

  • Strong, lightweight and easy to store when not required, leaving you with more space when it is needed most.

  • 3 L capacity,    Width 24 cm x 40 cm Length

  • Weight when empty 300g

  • Supplied with a fuel spout that stores inside a dust-proof integrated pouch.

  • D rings and daisy chains are suitable for use with tie downs, Bungee cords or ROK straps.

  • Also suitable for water, provided that the cell has not been used for fuel before.

So why Desert Fox fuel bladders? One customer was concerned about it being a flexible polyethylene construction vs maybe rubber.... so I asked the owner of Desert Fox to comment:

Hello Matt

The Desert Fox Cell comprises a three layer construction of various polymers, fused under pressure into a single layer .


It is by no means a simple polyethylene construction.


My background is one of a chemical engineer and it took  almost 2 years to achieve this tri-composite construction.


Benefits of it are:


1. Lightweight

2. Flexible

3. Suitable for high ethanol fuels . We have tested it with Ethanol up to an assay of 99.9 %

3. Many  hydrocarbons have a high aromatic value making them easily detectable by smell and we were mindful of this in the development of the cell i.e  one must not be able to smell fuel when the cell is full.


A rubberised cell will not be able to fulfill all these criteria . Moreso  rubber will deteriorate in time when exposed to hydrocarbons.


I suspect the perception is that a rubberised cell is tougher, being heavier in weight. This does not necessarily imply longevity however.


    

If it is any consolation I am still using the same 6l cell for 8 years. It has been right through Africa en -route to Mongolia as well as on other trips through the Himalayas, Myanmar , Laos , Cambodia , Siberia &  both sides of the Hindu Kush etc


It is a permanent fixture on my bike, but then I am biased! ;-)

Super product but...

The bag itself is a super idea. A lot of ways to attach it to the bike. Discreet, people don’t really know what’s in the bag. Easy to fill but…to fill your bike from the bag is another story. The way they stored the funnel it’s ok but the funnel gets squeezed and it hard to screw it on the bag because it is deformed. They should have a hard plastic connection. I had to fill my tank directly from the bag. I will try to find a funnel that fits somehow.
