Want to head out for a bike ride and take some things along, without having to use double panniers? A single pannier, also known as a removable pannier, could be just what you need. With a single pannier, you’ll only have a pannier on one side of the luggage carrier and, as the word “removable” suggests, this pannier type is designed to be easier to take off of the bicycle and use as a regular shoulder bag. Super-convenient for grocery shopping and transporting things on your bicycle!

What makes a good single pannier?

In general, a good single pannier is robust, waterproof and includes a convenient mounting system, like the MIK system. This type of system means always having a luggage carrier adapter with you, to mount a single pannier on your luggage carrier quickly and easily. Removable panniers are mounted on one side of the carrier, removable and convenient for transporting a number of things. Keep in mind that the weight of this pannier is located on one side of the bicycle and this may influence your steering and how easily you can get on or off your bicycle.

Single panniers are often used to transport things like office materials, laptops and school materials, and they're available in different shapes and sizes. Some removable panniers can be used as shoulder bags that you can easily mount on the luggage carrier for transport. Single panniers that are removable often feature a handle, so you can easily carry them to school or the office. Some removable panniers are called shoppers, shopper bags or shopping panniers. They're designed to be a little more spacious and they have a slightly less rigid form, making them ideal for groceries or a shopping trip. 

When you're shopping for a single pannier, personal taste is an important factor, as is the material the pannier is made of and whether it is water repellent or waterproof. A single pannier made of water-repellent material keeps the contents of your bag safe and dry when it's raining, while a waterproof bag also protects these contents during stormier weather. Brands known for their water-resistant removable panniers are Ortlieb and Thule

Most bicycle bags and panniers are made of synthetic materials, mainly polyester and Bisonyl. Polyester is often used for the production of panniers because it's sturdy and will retain its shape. It’s also water-repellent and quick-drying. Bisonyl is a PVC-coated synthetic, reminiscent of canvas because of its powerful, smooth structure. Bisonyl is known for being incredibly resistant to abrasions and is especially suitable for transporting heavy loads, while also being highly water resistant.

Other things to consider when you're shopping for a pannier, are its appearance and finishing. Hollandbikeshop.com offers a wide range of the most diverse single panniers, from smooth black panniers with reflective elements, like the Beck Sporty and brightly colored panniers like the New Looxs Lily, to panniers featuring elegant leather details, like the Racktime MIA. In our web shop, you’ll find them all. 

Brands that are known for their high-quality removable single panniers are AGU, Basil, Beck, FastRider, Ortlieb, Thule and Racktime. A few examples of single/removable panniers that people are raving about are the New Looxs Odense, the Urban Proof Shopper, the Basil City Shopper, the Ortlieb Back Roller Urban and the Willex 1200

The pannier's type of closure can also be of interest. The most common pannier closure has always been the two-clasp closure, but now there's a new kid in town. Panniers with a roll closure are becoming increasingly common nowadays. One advance to this type of closure is that you can adjust it to increase the pannier's capacity. One example of a single pannier with a roll closure is the Beck Roll, with a 15 to 21 liter capacity. 
 

Single panniers - what size?

When determining the right size pannier for you, think of what you’re going to be using it for. You could be looking for a single pannier with a capacity of up to 20 liters, perfect for transporting smaller things like food and drinks on a bike outing. A (smaller) single pannier in this category, with a 5-liter capacity, is the Beck Micro
Removable single panniers with a capacity of 20 to 30 liters are most common, and suitable for transporting your laptop, books, food/drinks, and school and office materials. This size pannier is often used as a shoulder bag or shopper, like the Willex 1200 XL
Single panniers with a capacity of 40 to 50 liters are often used for cycling trips that require a lot of supplies and an extra set of clothes, or enough space for a lot of groceries. A good example of a pannier this size is the Ortlieb Bike Packer Plus. Single panniers with a capacity of over 50 liters, like the Ortlieb Back Roller Pro Classic, are perfect for transporting luggage on a cycling holiday. Regardless of what size or type of single pannier you’re looking for, you’ll find what you're looking for at Hollandbikeshop.com. 
 

How do you mount single panniers? 

Removable, single panniers often feature convenient hooks or a click system, like the MIK system (MIK stands for “Mounting Is Key”). The MIK click system lets you quickly and easily mount the pannier on the luggage carrier of your bicycle before and after each ride. When more than one bicycle in one household features the MIK adapter, you can also switch the pannier to a different bicycle whenever you want. Fun and convenient any time your partner wants to go for a grocery run and needs your pannier! 
At Hollandbikeshop.com, we're often asked whether it's possible to use a removable pannier with a child bike seat. It often isn't, unless you're using a nifty accessory like the Steco Pakaf-Mee. The Pakaf-Mee is an adapter that can be used on both the right and left side of the luggage carrier and puts space between the bicycle and pannier, making the pannier stick out slightly. This creates enough space for both the pannier and the child bike seat. 

In Hollandbikeshop.com's versatile range, you’ll find single/removable panniers in different shapes and sizes, for men's and women's bicycles as well as e-bikes, and in many colors, from dark colors like black, blue and brown to neon yellow and lime green, with or without prints. Hollandbikeshop.com offers a wide range of products and fast delivery!
