Mega pannier and backpack all in one!
This is the 2009 model of the Karakorum
This multifunctional rear pannier combination lends flexibility to any bike tour. Whether packing for a lengthy bike tour or loading a lot of stuff for a short trip the Karakorum offers you a plethora of choices. Stout construction and impeccable styling make this a favorite of many bike travelers.
The top portion converts to a backpack and features a simple back pad and shoulder straps. The side panniers can also individually be attached to the rear rack for as lighter, smaller configuration. The hardback backplate contributes a high degree of stability to the panniers. They are asymmetrically constructed for heel clearance, lightweight and durable. The panniers use Vaude’s QMR attachment system, a top quality, technically advanced attachment system that can be quickly mounted and removed. 2 patch pockets and a zip outside pocket carry any items that you want readily available. Integrated reflective elements help keep you visible.
When touring in wild places like Patagonia, Scotland or Florida, it is nice to have a bike pannier that can do it all. With so many options this pannier will have a configuration for every occasion.
Combine the Karakorum with a set of front panniers for some serious cargo capacity!
