Koga team up with Ortlieb for Signature Pannier and Handlebar Bags

When pre-ordering my Koga Worldtraveler S this last week, I expressed my preference for Ortlieb pannier bags front and back, and was happy to find out that Koga had teamed up with Ortlieb to create panniers and bags for Koga. So I have included front and rear bags and handle bag. The total cost for the bike including pannier bags, is £4100.

A lot of money I know, but I have to say a lot of bike too. This is a lifelong dream of mine to attempt, so skimping is not how I want to go. I may live to regret spending so much money, but I also actually may live, because I have invested in such great equipment.  


Ortlieb is so well known to touring cyclists, and it seems that most would prefer Ortlieb over any other brand. Waterproof panniers are a must, and Ortlieb are said to offer the best protecting there. 



Ortlieb’s Back-Roller is hermetically-sealed with roll closure means if your bike falls into a river, your stuff will stand its best chance at staying dry. So important when I think about the value of my equipment inside them. They also include shoulder straps so you can carry them as a backpack. Created for Koga Signature, the Back-Rollercomes with the Quick-Lock2 attachment system. The bags can also be combined with the Ortlieb Rack-Pack (sizes S or M) on the rear rack, so that tent, sleeping bags or sleeping mats can also be safely packed.


• In PVC coating polyester fabric

• Quick-Lock2 attachment system

• Reflectors

• With integrated inner bag

• Capacity per set: 40 litres, 20 litres each

• Dimensions per pannier: 42 x 23/32 x 17 cm



Universal, waterproof panniers (a pair) in polyester fabric, with roll closure. Suitable for low-rider racks on the front wheel or as rear panniers. The Front-Roller comes specially for Signature with the practical Quick-Lock2 attachment system. As with the Back-Rollers, here too it’s possible to combine them with the Ortlieb Rack-Pack, sizes S and M, on the rear rack, so as to be able to transport extra equipment.

Ultimate5: this handlebar bag holds its shape exceptionally well and is highly durable, with reinforced lid and internal stiffening. Available in size M, it delights users with versatile storage options, including the integrated valuables compartment. It can carry up to 3 kg, and it is designed to fit handlebars up to 31.8 mm diameter. A map case can be attached to the top of the lid closure on the Ultimate5, and this is included when ordered through Signature.
