Description

The Ortlieb Back Roller Classic panniers come as a set and are, like the name would suggest, an absolute classic when it comes to panniers. A favourite amongst adventurous cyclists for years now, partly for their reliability and full waterproof properties! Robust polyester makes the Back Roller Classic a durable companion on your daily commute and long distance bicycle adventures. The secure closure systems on the Back-Roller Classic panniers ensure you can bring your food, drinks, and luggage anywhere safely and protected from the elements. The Back Roller Classic also has a small zippered compartment which can hold your smaller -but often valuable- items.

No need to worry about user friendliness. The Quick-Lock 2.1 attachment system means you can fit or remove the pannier to and from your bike with one hand. The mounting clips are easily adjustable across a wide range, meaning it can be fitted to any luggage rack in a shock-proof way. The reflectors on both sides of the panniers offer additional visibility in the dark.

The 2 included shoulder straps allow you to comfortably carry the panniers when you get off the bike. Convenient if you're heading into town after your ride or when you're going for a hike. The Ortlieb Back-Roller Classic comes with a 5-year warranty.

Quality bicycle panniers that last years.

I spoje to someone from Mantel. The person was very helpful. I was clarifying an issue before l bought the bicycle panniers. You could make it clearer the litre size and the exact model type. I bought x2 Ortlieb bicycle panniers and an really pleased by this purchase. Before l bought a cheap bicycle pannier and it basically fell apart. These Ortlieb bicycle panniers, hold enough for me to do a large shop and carry back on my bicycle. I like the amount you can fit into the panniers, the bright colours, the sturdy quality and the easy attachment and release system. The positives definitely outlay the negatives, but if there are negatives l would say these two things: (1) It's vdry easy for the release strap to get caughtbinside the plastic grasping hooks, which then make a it hard to release the panniers. (2) The fabric strap on the outside of the pannier, is not long enough to clip on when you have a lot of stuff inside the pannier. I have to use an elastic strap in order to close the pannier.

Pros

  • Excellent Quality
  • Holds a huge amount of items.
  • Quick and easy to attach and release.
  • Stays secure when cycling.
  • Bright colours.

Cons

  • The release handle gets caught easily between the
  • The strap which cloes the bag, isn't long enough

Great design, but expensive

There's no denying that these panniers are probably the best available. They're easy to use, well-made and have lots of well-thought out features. I can't think of how this design could be improved on, but if I really had to come up with a negative it would be the straps. They're fiddly to tuck into the little holders to prevent them fouling the wheels as you ride. The only other negative would be the price. It's a lot of money, but they do look like they're built to last.

Pros

  • Easy to install
  • Reflective patches and bright colours
  • Waterproof
  • Easy to remove from rack
  • Light weight, yet robust

Cons

  • Straps need to be tucked away
  • Kind of expensive
  • Plastic clasps seem a bit flimsy
  • Roll-up closure takes some getting used to

Robust and Long Lasting

I have an Ortleib pannier from the nineties and it's still going strong as an everyday commuter pannier. No tears or rips. Still waterproof. These new panniers will no doubt give as good service. Very good value via Mantel.

Pros

  • lightweight
  • sturdy
  • high quality
  • good value

Cons

  • only one compartment
