The big advantage of using panniers is that you can carry more without having to put anything in a bag on your back. This makes them very popular for touring and commuting purposes. So, if you want to take a picnic, or camping gear or even just a bike pump and snack food with you on your ride, you can do so without being weighed down by it.
Panniers can be fitted to the front or back of your bike. It’s normally best to get them in pairs, so that weight is equally distributed and your balance is not affected. Bigger panniers can carry more, but will also widen your profile and create more drag.
Pannier bags are the ideal choice for carrying your personal belongings on your bike without having to use a rucksack. Pannier bags are designed to fit on either the front or rear of the bicycle using a pannier rack. Pannier bags vary in size and shape but are all designed to work with specific racks on the front, rear or side of the bike. Pannier bags allow a rider to carry large amounts of equipment in a safe and protected manner. Wiggle stocks a large range of panniers from the market leaders, such as Agu, Altura, Deuter, dhb and Ortlieb, giving you a wide choice to suit your needs.
