QL2.1 Mounting System:(Compare)

  • Upper & Lower Mounting: Crafted from a robust, anti-scratch thermoplastic, it accommodates rack rails ranging from 8mm to 16mm in diameter.
  • Upper Mounting: Easily adjustable hook positions ensure optimal placement on your rack’s upper rails. The quick-lock hooks open automatically for effortless one-handed removal. Anti-scratch hook inserts for 8mm, 10mm, and 12mm rails are included. Optional 20mm QL-2.1 Top-Hooks – E193 are available for over-sized rack top-rails. Rails integrate with the Ortlieb Pannier Security Cables-Long for locking to your cargo rack.
  • Lower Mounting: The semi-elliptical shape of the lower hook rail allows for secure and straightforward attachment. Adjust the lower hook position and orientation (in 15-degree steps) with ease. An additional lower mounting hook can be added for enhanced pannier security during rough conditions.
  • See the QL2.1 mounting instructions.

Fabrics: PD620 & PS490:(Compare)

  • Highly Rated Durability: Both fabrics boast exceptional tear and abrasion resistance, ensuring long-lasting performance.
  • PD620 (Polyester, PVC Coated “Classic”): Used on the colored panels, this fabric offers stiffness with a glossier outer finish. It’s easy to clean and features highly durable PVC waterproof inner and outer layers.
  • PS490 (Polyester, PVC Coated “Classic”): Employed on the black panels, it offers remarkable durability with a PVC waterproof inner layer.

Roll-Top Closure: (Compare)

  • Effective Protection: The roll-top closure is a simple and effective means of safeguarding your belongings from dust and spray water from all directions.
  • Adjustable Height: You can adjust the height of the panniers to accommodate different-sized loads.
  • Versatile Use: The unrolled material extends 28cm / 11″ above the upper hook rail. For maximum capacity while maintaining waterproofness, a minimal 3 rolls leave 18cm / 7″ of fabric extended. To minimize capacity, roll up all of the extended fabric above the upper hook rail.
  • Additional Support: A center strap provides extra support for sealing the closure.
  • Attachment Flexibility: You can mount a Rack Pack Medium or Small across the top of the pannier, with the center straps connecting to secure it. The rolled-closure straps buckle to an included 69cm / 27″ adjustable-length shoulder strap. A hook on the bottom outer surface of the pannier is used for hooking the shoulder strap when closing the pannier for cycling. The shoulder strap can be quickly removed from the hook and adjusted for use as a shoulder strap off the bicycle. Alternatively, the shoulder straps can be left behind, and the rolled-closure straps can buckle to each other to close the pannier and serve as a handle for carrying the panniers.

Dust & Waterproofness Rating: IP 64:(Compare)

  • Reliable Protection: The IP 64 rating means the panniers are dustproof and protected against splash water from all directions.
  • Bottom Surface Stability: The lower edge protector features slots for mounting to the Ortlieb Carry System, creating a firm and flat bottom surface for stable placement.
  • Internal Pocket: The panniers include an internal pocket. The main pocket is open without a closure and measures 30.5cm / 12″ tall and 32cm / 12.5″ wide at the top, and 23cm / 9″ wide at the bottom. Additionally, there’s a secondary outer mesh pocket with a zippered closure, measuring 13cm / 5″ tall and 32cm / 12.5″ wide.
  • Reflective Elements: Highly reflective 3M Scotchlite patches measuring 8cm x 8cm / 3″ x 3″ are positioned on the front and rear-facing panels of each pannier. These patches enhance visibility at night, reflecting automobile lights.

Back Ordered Panniers

Panniers were back-ordered but Campfire got it to me as soon as it came in stock. No hassles and they arrived in the time frame estimated upon ordering. Happy customer here.

Yes you should buy them

Super easy to set up on Axiom Streamliner DLX Rear Rack. If I had to find a complaint it would be that they are teardrop shaped rather than a perfect cube so a shopping bag or my messenger bag dont drop straight to the bottom. I usually repack the groceries and I drop the messenger bag in sideways. Still certain I made the right choice.

Works well

Bought this on sale along with an Ortlieb handlebar bag. Went on my first bike tour and they worked out great. A day in nonstop rain and everything stayed perfectly dry.
