Panniers are an ideal way to bring a lot of stuff with you whenever you’re heading out with your bicycle. Anything from inexpensive panniers for your simple daily shop to waterproof panniers suitable for your commute to and from work. Single panniers are ideal for trips to school while large panniers for e-bikes make for the perfect day out. There’s plenty of choice from our range of Ortlieb panniers, Basil bags, or New Looxs products. If you’re looking to buy new panniers, then you’ve come to the right place at Mantel! So pimp your ride with a few new nice bags, and head on out into the world!
Single panniers: plenty of space for the small stuff
A single pannier hangs off one side of your luggage rack, and is ideal for when you don’t need to bring all that much with you. Single panniers are also available as removable bags, meaning you can bring your laptop and documents straight inside with you. Simply leaving your panniers out in the rain isn’t necessary then! A pick-up pannier transforms into a good-looking messenger bag in seconds. Single panniers are also great for day trips on the bike. Plan on going a little further afield? Double panniers are the way to go. Expect a typical British summer on your travels? Then consider opting for waterproof bicycle panniers. It’s reassuring to know your gear gets to where you’re going safe and dry. Popular brands for single panniers are Ortlieb, Basil, Thule, Vaude, New Looxs, and Fastrider.
Double Panniers: bring more on the bike
Double panniers allow you to bring a lot more gear with you on the bike. Basic panniers are ideal for when you just want to use them for your daily shop. Waterproof panniers are perfect for when you’re going on long daytrips with the bike. Double panniers are a little harder to bring with you off the bike compared to single-sided bags though. If you really want to start hauling stuff around, then go for the large panniers with extra space inside. So load up your bicycle with Fastrider panniers, Basil panniers, Ortlieb panniers, Thule bags, Vaude panniers, or one of the many other great brands in our range. Plan on taking a cycling holiday? Then trekking panniers or bikepacking bags are perfect for you. These bags are meant for the true two-wheeled globetrotters. Adventures on the bike demand adequate equipment, and a set of nice trekking panniers will help you enjoy the trip all that much more.
Waterproof panniers: bags for all-weather commuters
A waterproof pannier bag will help you get all your valuable items and documents to where you’re going safe and dry. Waterproof panniers are available as both single-sided and double panniers, meaning there’s a bag out there to suit your needs. Some of them, such as canvas panniers, are only water repellent. They can stand up to a brief shower, but you’re better off bringing your valuables such as documents or a laptop in a fully waterproof bag. There’s plenty of choice with Thule panniers, Basil panniers, Vaude panniers, New Looxs panniers, Fastrider panniers, Ortlieb panniers, and so much more.
Removable panniers are easily clicked into place on your luggage rack. They prevent you from having to carry a sweaty, hot bag on your back while you’re out riding. Once you’ve arrived at your destination, simply remove the bag from the carrier and sling it over your shoulder with the frequently included messenger bag strap. These good-looking panniers also often have their own unique, distinctive look, meaning there’s something for everyone. Ideal for the cycling commuters who need to bring their valuables and documents but don’t want to mess around with a backpack. Is foul weather no reason to take the train to work for you? Then make sure you get yourself a waterproof cycling pannier. Make sure you don’t need special E-bike panniers, as some rear luggage racks are adapted to suit e-bike batteries.
Good-looking panniers: add a dash of colour to your commute
While panniers might have looked a little dull in the past, that certainly isn’t the case today. Tricking out your bike was never easier with so much choice in colours and prints! Give your bike a brand new look with a single-sided or double set of panniers in your favourite colour. Many great panniers feature a funky print or a sleek monochrome colour scheme. Basil panniers are available for instance in both bright prints and sober hues. New Looxs panniers can also be considered diverse when it comes to styling, and Vaude panniers, Thule panniers, Ortlieb panniers, and Fastrider panniers too have joined the trend and offer a good-looking set of bags for everyone. Many of these are water resistant panniers or even waterproof panniers, meaning your possessions will get to where you’re going safe and sound.
Children’s panniers: bags for students
There are panniers for children too, so even the youngest cyclists can bring their school supplies with them on the bike. A pannier doesn’t just have to be a pannier either, what with the removable bags in our collection. These panniers often come with a shoulder strap or regular carrier straps so your child can simply bring the bag with them into class. Simply hang the pannier off your luggage rack and pick it up again once you’ve arrived at your destination. We have plenty of choice when it comes to good-looking panniers, with bags by New Looxs or Basil. A waterproof pannier makes sure their schoolbooks get there safe and dry. Sadly, that also means that the excuse of rain having destroyed your homework won’t work anymore.
E-Bike panniers: head out with a set of panniers for your electric bicycle
The electric bike, or ebike, is immensely popular these days when it comes to taking up day trips. More often than not these bikes use a slightly different luggage rack to accommodate the battery, meaning you need specific panniers for ebikes. E-bike panniers come both as single- and dual sided bags. Bring along something to eat and drink, throw in a picnic blanket and head on out. Chance of showers along the way? Then go for a waterproof pannier. Rather just want a small bag on your handlebars? Then have a look at our collection of bar-mounted bags.
