Waterproof XL pannier with roll closure

Bike touring through Europe, family trips or travelling around the globe? No problem with ORTLIEBs new XL size
Back-Roller Pro bike panniers.

(Sold as a Pair. Also available as Singles.)


Bike touring through Europe, family trips or traveling around the globe? No problem with ORTLIEBs new XL size Back-Roller Pro bike panniers. A total volume of 70 L (4272 cu.in) per pair makes them the largest waterproof panniers available on the market. At the same time, they provide an optimal volume to weight ratio. The reliable roll closure ensures that gear stays dry and clean. An interior pocket helps keep things organized and at hand. Even faster access and additional storage is provided by the outer pocket (8 L/ 488 cu.in.) which is also convenient for storing wet gear.

Thanks to the convenient QL2.1 mounting system with automatically locking hooks, the panniers can be quickly and easily mounted to almost any rack. The mounting system is adjustable without requiring any tools and is suitable for racks with a tube diameters up to 16 mm (hook inserts for diameters of 8, 10 and 12 mm included). The hook rail on the lower rear side of the pannier that serves for additional fixation is made of a two-component synthetic combination with anti-scratch function. This reduces abrasions on the carrier. Thanks to the rotatable QL2.1 mounting hook the system is compatible with almost any bike rack.

    • Upper Mounting
      • The hook positions are easily adjusted without tools for optimal placement on the rack’s upper rails.

There's so much room in these panniers, it's like a different world.

These things are great, wish I'd gotten them years ago!

My wife & I have shared a pair of Back-Roller Classics (40L capacity) for the past decade. They're solid and have outlasted other panniers we've owned, but I needed my own pair. I got these because while 40L capacity is good most of the time, every once in a while there's something that won't fit (like a Kirkland brand bag of Tortilla chips). Well, the extra cost of the Back-Roller Pro Classic was definitely worth the money. These are just as good as the Back-Roller Classics, but with 70L capacity it fits EVERYTHING. Unfortunately my wife likes them too, so now she's using them and I'm stuck with the older panniers.

Excellent bags!

Completed 240-mile bikepacking on crushed limestone. Ortliebs are dust-proof and easy to wipe clean. Fortunately no water-proof testing yet.

Very nice cavernous bags!

Bought four of these for my Salsa Blackborow and they do an excellent job of hauling whatever cargo I need, groceries, camping gear, coach supplies, even filled them with candy for a parade. Seem very durable and are easy to take on and off,

New Purchase of older bags

I've purchased from Bikeshophub about ten years ago. Smaller bags then, same brand, same high quality and same great service and shipping. In that much time, Bikeshophub has maintained the high quality and pricess better than anywhere else.
