Description of Ortlieb Office-Bag M QL2.1 - Bike Pannier - black
The waterproof bike briefcase with roll closure can be mounted on the right or left side of the rack. It can be quickly mounted and easily taken off the rack single-handed. The Office-Bag offers room for files, office supplies, mobile etc. With the padded Notebook Sleeve (available as extra accessory) it is a perfect laptop bag (up to 15.4"). Two large 3M Scotchlite reflectors and a reflective ORTLIEB logo ensure safety in the dark and in bad weather conditions. Edge protectors and base feet on the rear and bottom ensure optimal protection of the bag. It features a padded shoulder strap for comfortable transport.
The pannier mounting system Quick-Lock2.1 is based on the proven QL2 system, however, several decisive features were considerably improved, especially with regards to racks currently on the market.
This optimized system has the following features that distinguish it from others:
Automatic closing and opening of hooks by lifting the pannier handle.
When the pannier is lifted by the handle, the two hooks on the reverse side are opened. Then the pannier can be hooked into the rack. Once you let go of the handle, the two hooks close around the rack tube.
16 mm QL hooks with inserts which have an "Anti-Scratch" function for 8, 10 and 12 mm (size 12 mm e.g. required for Racktime racks). In QL2.1, the reductions inserts are now attached from the sides and secured against loss.
20 mm QL hooks are optionally available for racks with larger diameters (17-20 mm) as often used on E-bikes.
The upper mounting rail consists of one piece for higher stability. With models Office-Bag and Downtown it can be adjusted to the left or right side of the bike rack.
The new assembly system allows the use of extremely flat nuts on the inner side thus featuring a level surface and avoiding damage to whatever you bring along.
Optional upgrade with anti-theft device into the upper rail.
The lower hook rail is made of a two-component synthetic combination with "Anti-Scratch" function. This reduces abrasions on the carrier and prevents damage to the rack tubing. The lower hook is rotatable in 15° steps and adjustable in height.
Just as in the conventional QL2 system, all hooks are adjustable to the rack without requiring any tools and can be easily exchanged.
