Carradice Kendal Pannier - PAIR

Despite inventing the bicycle, us Brits have a long history of borrowing words from French to describe cycling culture. It's a strange habit, more or less intended to bamboozle the uninitiated. For example, pannier found it's way from Latin to Old French to Middle English long ago to mean 'bread basket'. What a nonsense.

What do folk like us think?
Though they're perfectly capable of helping you escort your sourdough home from Zymologists, Companio or Barbikan and the like, that's far from the only application of a modern pannier. For many a decade panniers have been used by cyclists to carry pretty much everything they needed for a trip to work, the shops or, say, the Dordogne.

Why? Because the weight is kept low on your stead keeping you free of wobbles, you can balance the weight between a pair of panniers too, whilst riding free of a big ol' rucksack which nudges the back of your helmet and can make you pretty hot and sweaty if you're laden and travelling far.

Carradice have been making panniers for an age right here in the north west, and the Kendal is perhaps the most traditional of their range and leans heavily on natural materials to protect whatever you stuff in it from the elements. We love them and we think you will too.

  • Panniers are the most energy efficient way to carry your luggage on your bike - the low centre of gravity aids stability
  • Available in a wide range of styles and sizes - choose the ones that are right for you
  • Built to last - we choose the fabric, fastenings and fixings for their durability and functionality
  • High visibility reflectors and mounting points for LED lights to keep you safe on the road
The Kendal pannier is a great looking retro style bag that will look good on your city bike, tourer or vintage bike. Its boxy shape makes carrying files a cinch and the carrying strap allows for easy transport off the bike. The patented Quick-Clip fixing system allows the bag to be mounted and demounted in seconds without any loss in security when fixed to the pannier rack. The pannier has D rings to which an optional Shoulder Strap can be attached.
