What is a double pannier?

A double pannier consists of two single panniers connected by a universal bridge design; the panniers are placed on either side of the bicycle’s luggage carrier and fastened in place. By having a pannier on both sides of the luggage carrier, you can evenly distribute the weight of whatever you want to take with you and keep your bicycle from tipping to one side, which could negatively impact your steering. By maintaining your balance, you’ll keep control of the bicycle and enjoy great cycling comfort. Double panniers are generally made of synthetic materials, most often polyester or bisonyl. Polyester is frequently used for the production of panniers and bicycle bags because of its sturdiness, its ability to maintain its shape, and its water-resistant properties. It also dries very quickly. Bisonyl is a PVC-coated material that looks a lot like canvas, due to its powerful fibre structure. Bisonyl is known for its exceptional resistance to wear and for being particularly suitable for transporting heavy cargo. In addition, it is a highly water-resistant material.
 

What is the best double pannier? 

While your personal taste is usually decisive when it comes to choosing a double pannier, the material it’s made of is often a factor too. If you want to be certain that the pannier is water-resistant or waterproof, for example. Water-resistant panniers ensure that the contents of your pannier bag are safe during a rainstorm, while waterproof panniers will offer protection in even rougher weather conditions. Great examples of waterproof double panniers are the Thule Shield pannier, Beck SPRTV, Basil Urban Dry and AGU Urban Essential DWR. Also, many of our customers consider double panniers by Beck, Ortlieb and Willex to be the best choice. 
 

What size double pannier? 

The intended purpose determines the size of your double pannier. Double panniers with a 20 to 30 liter capacity are generally too small for grocery shopping. However, you can use them for transporting your rain wear, some snacks and beverages for an outing, or school things. If you’re looking for panniers of this size, you could also consider getting a single pannier instead of a double pannier. Single panniers often have the added benefit of being easy to remove and transformed into a messenger bag or shoulder bag. Take the Basil Urban Load, for example. 
A volume of 30 to 40 liters is the standard size for double panniers; not too big, not too small. This double pannier size is a popular choice among teenagers transporting their school things and commuters not eager to bike to work with a heavy pack. 
Double panniers with a 40 to 50 liter capacity are most often used for trips to the grocery store. 
It’s no accident that the most popular size double panniers is 45 liters. Panniers with a capacity of 50 liters and over are also often called newspaper bags, and used for the transportation of groceries, bags of soil and other larger, heavier items. Panniers with a higher capacity are also often used by people looking to transport more than usual when going on multi-day cycling trips. The Willex XL 1200 double pannier, for example, has a whopping 65 liter capacity and a removable top compartment. With these double panniers you can transport lots of items, like spare clothes, a rain suit and provisions for a cycling trip. For the smallest cycling enthusiasts, we have great children’s bike panniers, like the Frog and Friends children’s pannier. 
You’ll find a wide variety of double panniers in our range, with a capacity ranging from 7 to 80 liters. 
 

What double panniers for an electric bicycle? 

Most double panniers in our range are suitable for electric bicycles. And if your electric bicycle battery is located in the bicycle’s frame, you can put virtually any double pannier on the luggage carrier. Unlike single panniers, double panniers aren't mounted on the luggage carrier using hooks, so there is generally plenty of room left between the pannier, battery and luggage carrier. Mounting a double pannier there shouldn't be a problem. Additionally, the bridge size (the connecting part between the left and right pannier) of the double pannier is usually wide enough for the pannier bags to hang over the sides without sticking out. If your electric bicycle’s luggage carrier is equipped with an adapter system like the MIK, Racktime Snap-It or Atran Velo system, make sure that the double pannier you have your eye on is compatible with this adapter system.
 

How do you install a double pannier? 

Double panniers are often equipped with buckles, straps or a click-fit system like the MIK system (Mounting Is Key). With the MIK system, you can install the double pannier on your bicycle quickly and safely, and remove it just as easily whenever you’re not using it. If there are several bicycles at your household and they each have a MIK adapter on the luggage carrier, then you can also move your double pannier from one bicycle to the other whenever you want. Fun and convenient for those moments where your partner wants to take a trip to the grocery store and needs your double pannier.
