Ortlieb releases New Packs for Bikepacking, Camping, Micro Adventure & More For the Roads Less Traveled

ortlieb bikepacking gear for 2021

“The trends of bike commuting, bikepacking, camping and micro-adventure are seeing an even bigger boost thanks to the Coronavirus pandemic.”

“Even before the pandemic, cycling was trending upwards and current developments are only fueling this momentum. During the lockdown many beginners discovered the bike for the first time since childhood. In addition, public transport seems to be suffering during this crisis, and more and more people are opting for the bike as a means to commute to work instead.”

“The unstable situations world-wide makes international trip planning difficult, and so, conversely, domestic trips will boom. Camping, bike tours, long weekends and micro-adventures will certainly be popular vacation options this year. Fittingly, we just revised the entire bikepacking line, with the Frame-Pack RC and the Fork-Pack as highlights. The Fork-Pack also comes with a completely new mounting system, the Quick-Lock S. And, of course, we’ll offer a suitable counterpart for bike tours: the Fork-Pack Plus. With the Back-Rollers Free, we’re offering for the first time, the popular Back-Roller bags with the highly practical Quick-Lock 3.1 system.”

“The “trunk for the bike” concept has also been revisited with a new and innovative Top-Lock mounting system for our various luggage rack bags. You’ll see this system used for the E-trunk, the variants of the Trunk-Bag RC and the versions of the Up-Town rack. In addition to a quick initial installation, the universal Top-Lock system is characterized by its super quick and convenient attachment and removal ability — done with just one “click”!”

“Finally, we’re introducing numerous modified variants and additions to the existing ORTLIEB range, including the Velocity PS; new sizes for the Velocity and Commuter Daypack, the Atrack CR and CR Urban, the bike and bike shoppers; the Back- Roller Design, Velocity Design and the Vario, as well as new colors for the Classic Line, for the Atrack family, the Commuter Daypack City and Packman Pro Two.”

“All of the products presented are of course waterproof and sustainably made in Germany.”

Quick-Lock S (QLS)

Innovative Adapter System for your Bike Fork

“Fast, faster, Quick-Lock S adapter system. The completely new and innovative adapter system is a perfect solution for attaching bags such as the Fork-Pack or Fork-Pack Plus to the fork of your bike. The QLS adapter weighs only 85g and is extremely robust despite its minimal weight. Bags can easily and quickly be attached and removed with one hand in just seconds.”

“The QLS can be mounted on forks with eyelets or cage mounts intended for this purpose, as well as on forks without cage mounts, as long as the fork blades sport a constant diameter of 30 mm to 42 mm. QLS is primarily designed for attachment to the bicycle fork, but can be attached to all vertical tubes using the accessories supplied.”

Top-Lock (TL)

Innovative Adapter System for Luggage Racks

“Universal Top-Lock (TL) adapter system for the direct attachment of bags and baskets to the luggage rack. The Top-Lock adapter helps to quickly attach the bags and baskets to the luggage rack. Not only is the initial assembly of the adapter to the luggage rack done in a jiffy, even afterwards, attaching and detaching the bags and baskets with the Top-Lock adapter is child‘s play thanks to the unlocking handles on both sides. Pressing just one of the two release handles on the left or right is sufficient for quick removal. With a clear “click” sound, there is an audible confirmation when the hooks are snapped correctly onto the luggage rack and the bag or basket is securely attached.”

“The Top-Lock is designed for racks of 60 to 140 millimeters in width and with a tube diameter of 8 to 16 millimeters. The system is also compatible with the spring-loaded racks and e-bike luggage racks with a battery. Anti-slip devices prevent the adapter from wiggling around on the luggage rack, and bags or baskets with the TL adapter can be removed completely, keeping the luggage rack free from annoying add-on elements.”
