Product Details

Ortlieb Rear Roller Pro Plus QL2.1 Panniers

'The world's largest pair of waterproof bicycle panniers.' Ortlieb.

Ortlieb Rear Roller Pro Plus QL2.1 Panniers carry loads up to 70 litres. Then they comes with external pockets to take the capacity up to 78 litres.

These panniers carry loads and keep it dry.

  • Rear Roller means rear panniers with roll closure.
  • Plus refers to its more cloth-like cordura fabric (compared with Ortlieb's trademark shiny fabric).
  • Plus fabric is PU-coated on the inside to ensure it's waterproof.
  • Ortlieb means guaranteed 100% waterproof.
  • QL2.1 deserves its own explanation.

Robust QL (Quick Lock) rack hooks are a stand-out Ortlieb pannier feature. They offer total security – this pannier will never jump off the rack - yet its easy-on easy-off action is so intuitive and effort free, one of our customers was moved to described it as “so simple, it’s like witchcraft”.

The benefit of the QL2.1 version is that it can be set up (no tools required) to adapt to an even wider variety of rear rack configurations and dimensions than the original QL1 system. Coming with inserts, the pannier hooks can fit racks with 8, 10, 12 or 16mm top rails, as described in Ortlieb's own video.

This video perfectly illustrates how Ortieb's QL2.1 hooks tenaciously secure the bag to the rear rack, yet offer instant release - simply by lifting the bag upwards by its handle.

The durable Codura fabric gives the bag a noble, woven-fabric look, and is also completely PVC free. The proven roll closure keep the contents of the inner compartment clean and dry at all times.
