Panniers have traditionally tended to go for practicality over looks. So if you wanted greater capacity than a normal bag allowed, you ended up looking like you were heading for the PanAmerican Highway.
These are different - whilst you wouldn't set off around the world with them, they are hard-wearing and water resistant and their looks set them apart from other options out there. Here is understated elegance and 38 litres of practicality rolled into one. Each pannier is sealed by a common sense draw string fastening plus double clips. The elegant innerlining and artificial leather details combine with the practicality of a double strap attachment and useful outer pockets.
Unless you're in negotiations with Guinness for the Round-The-World record, these could be for you.
- Exterior: water-repellant recycled canvas and artificial leather
- Interior: patterned polyester with zipped pocket
- Attachment: double strap joining the two panniers
- Combined capacity: 38 litres
Dutch cycling brand BASIL originated in the 1970s, when former owner Nico van Balveren - who at the time was a bicycle retailer - started producing a variety of bicycle baskets. A number of successful years later, the name of the company was updated to BASIL, a contraction of Nico’s name ‘van Balveren’ and ‘Silvolde’ the town where it all began.
In 2001 BASIL was passed down the family to Marthijn, Nico’s son, who continues to run the thriving company today from its base in Holland. Sold in over 17 countries, BASIL remains a popular brand, thanks to their unwavering commitment to their core values: reliability, innovation and contemporary style. They continue to produce imaginative, beautiful kit for... well, civilised cycling. Even Dutch royalty love BASIL, with Princess Amalia sporting one of their bicycle panniers.
