Features

  • QL2.1 Mounting System
    • Features of both Upper & Lower Mounting
      • Manufactured from a fiber-reinforced high-tech, anti-scratch thermoplastic that is extremely strong and durable, and in many tests can be stronger than metal parts.
      • Fits rack rails from 8mm to 16mm diameter.
      • See the QL2.1 mounting instructions.
    • Upper Mounting
      • The hook positions are easily adjusted without tools for optimal placement on the rack’s upper rails.
        • More forward placement is better for weight distribution, but rearward positions may be necessary for heal clearance.
      • Quick-lock hooks open automatically by lifting the pannier handles for easy one-handed removal.
      • Includes anti-scratch hook inserts for 8mm, 10mm and 12mm rails.
    • Lower Mounting
      • The semi-elliptical shape of the lower hook rail allows for optimal positioning for secure and easy attachment.
      • The lower hook position along the rail and orientation (in 15 deg steps) is easily adjusted without tools.
      • An additional lower mounting hook can be added on for extra security of the panniers in rough conditions.
  • “Plus” – Cordura, Pu Coated – PS36C
    • Highly rated tear and abrasion resistance.
    • Use of high-frequency welding to meet the highest of waterproofing specifications.
    • As compared to the “Classic” PD620 fabric, it is lighter in weight and more flexible especially in cold weather, yet it is still very tough.
    • Not as easy to clean as the “Classic” PD620 fabric.
    • Highly durable, polyurethane waterproof inner layer.
  • Roll-Top Closure
    • Simple, effective and highly versatile means of protecting contents against dust and spray water from all directions.
    • The roll closure gains it’s stability and waterproof quality from the thin plastic stiffener bars sewn into the upper end of the material.
    • Height or volume of packed bags can also be reduced by rolling up the material further.
  • Dust & Water Proofness Rating: IP 64
    • 6 = Dust proof, no penetration of dust.
    • 4 = Protected against splash water coming from all directions.
  • Includes two shoulder straps for carrying the panniers off of the bicycle.
    • Shoulder straps integrate into the roll closure system for easy accessibility.
  • Highly reflective 3M Scotchlite patches on front and rear of pannier.
  • Internal storage pocket.

Rode trip

I haven’t used the product yet for the trip but the quality is outstanding make sure to use the pipe reducer for the bag to hang onto the frame which should come with the bags. This way you get a tighter fit!

Campfire Cycling rocks!

So far my new set of Ortlieb bags seem awesome! Campfire Cycling was the only place I could find the set available, and the shop was responsive and helpful. The bags look great on my new Salsa Marrakesh, and I can't wait for spring to take a tour.

Great bags great service

I purchased surly racks and ortlieb panniers. They shipped promptly and I am happy. I also received some free matches with my purchase and have taken up smoking Winston cigarettes. Can’t wait to get out and start touring the Oregon and Washington coast. It will be great. Special thanks to Josh.
