Product Details

Ortlieb Front-Roller Classic Panniers QL2.1

Ortlieb Front-Roller Classic Panniers, now upgraded with the QL2.1 rack attachment system.

Truly a classic product, Ortlieb Front-Rollers have been frequently quoted as the best front panniers you can fit to a bicycle, plus they can double as a smaller pair of rear panniers.

One of the reasons this remains the case more than a quarter century since their introduction is because, while the design of their Roller Panniers remains fundamentally the same, Ortlieb never miss an opportunity to introduce improvements, such as upgrading them with the QL2.1 version of their famous Quick Lock rack attachment system.

Robust QL (Quick Lock) rack hooks are a stand-out Ortlieb pannier feature. They offer total security – these panniers will never jump off the rack - yet their 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 QL hooks tenaciously secures the bag to the rack, yet offers instant release - simply by lifting the bag upwards by its handle.

More good things about Ortlieb Front-Roller Panniers

  • Robust hard-wearing nylon fabric with 100% waterproof laminated finish.
  • High frequency welded construction - no stitch holes further ensure Ortlieb bags are 100% waterproof.
  • Roll-top closure (hence the name Roller Pannier) - by rolling up the top of the bag three times and securing it with a buckle, water won't get into this bag - even if you drop the pannier in a lake.
  • Each pannier's simple one-compartment construction contributes to its waterproofness.
  • Also, compartmentalising a bag effectively reduces its usable space: single compartment bags like these Front-Rollers can hold more.
  • Shoulder straps make these bags more portable off the bike.
  • Large 3M retro-reflective triangle patches on the front and rear of each pannier help ensure you are seen.
  • Supplied as a pair.
  • Each pannier is 30cm high x 25cm wide x 14cm deep ( 11.8 x 9.8 x 5.5 inches) = approx 12.5 litre capacity.
  • Weight: 1,500g per pair - based upon weighing Ortlieb Front-Roller Panniers at Bike Co-op HQ in April 2015.
