The Ortlieb Back-Roller Classic is the absolute standard in pannier bags. You will have seen them out there on the roads, because Ortlieb have been making them for 40 years, and they are pretty much indestructible!
A simple design, with durable construction & replacement parts & accessories available for decades, the Back-Roller Classic is an easy choice if you are considering which pannier to buy.
Sold as a pair, these fully waterproof, roll-top closure bags come with a shoulder strap that fastens neatly on the bag when you don’t need it, and the mounting system is dead simple to use.
Ortlieb’s QL2.1 mounting system is their most popular, it’s intuitive to use and is compatible with just about every bike carrier rack out there. The Back-Roller comes with all the mounting hardware you need to fit it to your bike, no further accessories are required.
The QL2.1 mounting system works by simply lifting the bag by the carry handle, which disengages the lock from your rack and you can drop the bag back on just as easily when you are ready to ride.
These Ortlieb panniers are most definitely their most popular model & we highly recommend them. If you are unsure how they work, or how to fit them to your rack & are local to Melbourne, come on down to our bicycle repair shop in Richmond and we would be happy to demonstrate!
