Ortlieb Plus Touring Set
If you’re ready to outfit your bike up right for a touring adventure, you’ve come to the right bag/rack configuration machine. Yes right from your computer you can select all of the options you need to have an optimal setup for heading out on tour.
And not only that, but you can also get a great deal on the whole setup. Our configurator requires that you select both front and rear panniers. Optionally you can add in other helpful bags and racks to build out your ultimate touring setup.
World’s best panniers? Quite possibly. . .
I have used the Ortlieb Plus touring set before, and I love them. I feel that they are some of the best panniers on the planet, and I have used lots of them in the past 40 years and on 3 continents as well. I particularly like the extra size given that I often travel with light mountaineering gear as well as my biking stuff. I am in the planning stages of a North-to-South America trip where I will also be carrying a folding sea kayak with me on the bike, so space and efficient packing are even more important to me than normal. If all one is doing is a bike tour, I believe that these panniers could be too large—it is my observation that many bike tourists (except possible bike-packers) pack far too heavily beyond what they actually need. But for those crazies of us who love multi-sport bike touring (skiing, climbing, sea-kayaking, etc.) I love the large size! I actually have not used these new ones that I bought for a bike I keep in California (I live in Alaska and have a set there). It came after I already left for a road trip, so the new ones will have to wait for a while!
Ortlieb Plus Touring Set. Unused yet
I have not used my front and back rollers yet, but the classics I have had for many years held up as well as anything I have ever owned and still do, so I’m confident that these new bags will last forever. They look cool too.
Time to add luggage
Excellent service, website, order form, payment options, and shipping time frame.
