Ride Like The Wind

Our welded seam technology ensures that the bag will stay dry no matter the conditions you ride in. Our patented Cam-Lock® mounting system will keep the bags on the rack, regardless of the load or road conditions. No one else offers such a solid and reliable mounting system for bike panniers. Many smaller details make this bag unique, an internal organizer for easy access to documents, maps, tablet, wallet, etc. This means you won’t have to empty half the bag to reach these.

A plastic protector at the bottom backside of the pannier adds protection between the bag and the rack and will avoid any premature wear caused by friction against the rack. We also added D-rings for an optional shoulder strap, This is very practical when travelling at the airport or simply carrying your panniers around at the end of a long ride. Many small details make these panniers functional, durable and most importantly fun to use.

    I just love the attachment system of these panniers. The can be put on and off the front pannier Tubus rack with one hand, easily. They also stay attached on very bumpy roads ulike other makes which often become detached at the bottom hook. They were tested in a torrential downpour in Colombia so I am confident that they are completely waterproof and so far they seem to be pretty strong. I have tried several different makes of pannier and these come out well.
    My only issue with them is that it is a bit tricky to roll up the tops properly when the bags are half full. The material is very stiff and the side clips could do with being fixed further down the sides of the bag to stop the top unrolling itself. I carried food in the bags so if we were not carrying much in the way of provisions they were often far from full.
    I haven’t yet found a use for the little zip pocket! Suggestions?

    I was looking for a pair of small waterproof panniers to suit the new Surly 8-Pack Rack that I had mounted on the front of my Surly Ogre. I was looking for something that would not interfere with the front fork bottle mounts, something that would bungie-cord to a hook I’d attached to the dropout threaded mounts. Orca25 is my fix!
