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.
Made of durable and waterproof polyester fabric, the Ortlieb Ultimate Six Classic is a compact handlebar bag that plays a key role in the gear management plan of all bike touring enthusiasts. The Ultimate Six Classic offers a 8.5 litre payload and ample space for your valuables and the things you want to have at the ready on your tour.
This larger model enables the use of different inserts in case you want to securely stow any special gear such as your high-performance camera while you’re underway. All of the handlebar bags come with a detachable shoulder strap, a reflector and a zippered inside pocket. All Ultimate Six models are compatible with all Ortlieb mounting sets, as well as Rixen & Kaul Klickfix mounting systems. An extensive range of accessories is also available for all of the bar bags.
