This carrier has an excellent strength-to-weight ratio. It's almost 40% lighter than some of the "other" motorcycle carriers, which is a big deal for people doing this solo who aren't built like linebackers.
The "zero wobble" design is quite effective at eliminating the side-to-side wobble but doesn't completely eliminate up and down wobble. This isn't typically an issue unless you're on bumpy or wash-boarded roads. Adding an additional anti-wobble clamp will really lock this thing down.
I'm assuming the parts are powder coated, however, after the initial unboxing there were several chips exposing bare metal. Not a huge deal but disappointing. Each part was completely wrapped in foam so I can only assume the parts were chipped prior to packaging. At this price point I'd expect better quality control.
Finally, no instructions were included, just a note to go online to find instructions. For the money being spent they should send you a complete product. When I'm out on the driveway trying to install this thing I'd prefer to have a booklet to refer to instead of having to go back and forth to watch youtube videos. Of all the things to cut corners on, why the instructions?
Overall it's a great carrier and will serve you well but for what they're charging it could use a bit more polishing.
