Bicyclists are uniquely vulnerable when out on the road because they are less protected and less visible than motorists. The narrow silhouette projected by a bike and rider and the smaller size and strength of bicycle lights compared to those of motor vehicles make cyclists harder for motorists to detect in nearly all traffic conditions. In order to minimize this elevated risk for cyclists, we developed the total-reflection bike bag. In addition to their two large standard reflectors, the entire bodies of the bike bags in the High Visibility Line (HVL) are manufactured to reflect light!
Made of robust polyurethane-coated Cordura fabric, our HVL bike bags are obviously durable and absolutely waterproof. But they have also been developed to reflect light in all directions. Indeed, our HVL bags help others out there on the road to detect bicyclists and pedestrians sooner and to see them more clearly.
In addition to our classic bike travel bags such as the ORTLIEB Back-Roller pannier, our High Visibility line includes the Ultimate6 handlebar bag and the Sport-Roller. As an ideal introductory bike bag for young riders, our HVL Sport-Roller will help to keep your children safe.
And those who use their bikes to commute to work can take advantage of our HVL Office-Bag, which offers both the necessary payload for carrying items such as folders and laptops and enhanced detectability while you ride your bike.
Also in our High Visibility Line is our compact courier bag, the Velocity High Visibility. As a versatile daypack, the Velocity High Visibility is a faithful companion to you on your daily way to school and all of your downtown shopping forays.
With a payload of 2.7 liters, our High Visibility Saddle-Bag offers plenty of stowage space for a replacement tube, a tool kit and a rain jacket. In addition to its high luminosity, the bag makes for an optimal guard against spray water in case you prefer to go without a rear fender.
With the exception of the Saddle-Bag and the Office-Bag, all of the bags in our High Visibility Line are available in either reflective black material or reflective black and neon-yellow material, making them real eye-catchers both in the dark of night and the light of day.
All of our bags are PVC-free, waterproof and made in Germany.
With our High Visibility Line of bike bags, you can rest assured when you set out for home sometime late at night that you will not go unnoticed despite the dark.
