Hardcore Soft Rack

Add load carrying capacity to a plastic fender.

The Hardcore Soft Rack has been specifically designed for smaller bikes that have very little support in the back for luggage. The loops on the base and the side straps provide attachment points for our strap kits to secure bags across the back and down the sides of your motorcycle.

We have incorporated two 7075 T6 aluminum support bars to increase rear carrying capacity.

The bars have a Type III hardcoat anodizing. You will receive two silver anodized support bars.

NOTE: Aluminum support bars will no longer be forged into tire irons.

Construction Features:

  • Heavy Duty Metal Cams
  • Rubber cam buckle covers to protect your bike
  • MOLLE Compatible Spacing
  • Heavy Duty Nylon Webbing
  • Integrated storage for support bars
  • 7075 T6 Aluminum Support Bars 
  • All Attachments Fully Adjustable

As always, every product comes with our Hardcore Warranty and Raving Fan Guarantee

Worked like a charm for 4 days on the NMBDR on my KTM 525. Once you figure out how to properly mount in, you can see what a genius design it is.

Hardcore Soft Rack / 2020 690 SMCR

Finding a good luggage system for the SMCR can be difficult with the oversized canister and location of the gas tank. Yes this system works, and works well.

Adam went out of his way to help me find two different setups that would fit the bike. I opted for the lighter option. One thing to note is you'll need to cut out two of the center straps if you want to reach the gas cap without removing the rack. I made this modification, and the rack has maintained its integrity. You'll also need to pick up a set of Kriega heel guards to secure the straps.

Green Chile has the best customer service I've experienced within the moto industry. They know their stuff and go the extra mile to help ensure you've a system that works for you and your bike.

Awesome rack

Perfect for dual sport application. Tons of options and love the tire spoon integration

Hardcore rack

Just received this rack and very impressed with the build quality. Very sturdy feeling and fits the bike snuggly. Can't wait to test it properly.

Nice simple rack system

Had this for a few months now and it’s a great little system. I ride with my kids so I pack a small tool kit and the Green Chile tow strap and recovery system.(hated the weight in my pack) They stay strapped on perfectly with 2 of the Green Chile bungee straps. I also pack my ms170 saw around with ease when cleaning up trails. Also packed my tipi and stove with no issues. All around great little system and I don’t realize it’s there when I’m riding hard.(with just tools, tow strap, and recovery system) Pictures show with my saw on, straps are tied up when riding, saw just sits on top. Also very easy to install.
