In 1982, Hartmut Ortlieb founded ORTLIEB in Nürnberg. In 1997 the firm relocated to the Franconian town of Heilsbronn, not far from Nuremberg.
The first ORTLIEB bike panniers were created in pure personal need for waterproof equipment – it wasn't available at that time! ORTLIEB's first products were hand-made on his mother's sewing machine: dry bags and bicycle panniers made of truck tarps. These prototypes were tested by Hartmut and his friends on self-organized bicycle and climbing tours. What started very simple has soon developed into a story of success.
Any of the fully waterproof Ortlieb bike bags are an ideal companion to take with you on all of your bike ventures. No matter whether you're planning a short trip or an extended mega tour Ortlieb will have your back.
Even without being in the great outdoors, the Back-Roller City give bikers greater flexibility. The bag can be used on both sides or as single pannier. Highly incandescent 3M Scotchlite material reflectors on the pannier's sides give increased safety in traffic. This affordable pair of pannier bags is great for all day city use and further a field.
This model is provided with edge protectors having slots for fixing the Ortlieb pannier carrying system.
