The Brooks Land's End rear bike pannier is named after the starting point of the famous cycle route that traverses the length of the island of Great Britain. A 1,363 km route between the southwestern tip of the island, Land's End in England, and the northeastern tip, John O'Groats in Scotland. Each year hundreds of cyclists attempt this journey against the challenges of Britain's inclement weather.
The panel bags are waterproof, lightweight and durable to meet the demands of long-distance cyclists, without sacrificing style. The bag closure system with a leather strap allows to adjust the volume of each bag from a minimum of 19 l. to a maximum of 23. The saddlebag is sold individually. In order to buy a set of suitcases like the one in the photo, place 2 in the shopping cart. The saddlebag can be mounted on the left or right side. Pairs perfectly with the John O'Groats front saddlebag .
The Brooks bike saddle story started way back in 1865, a young man of just 19 years of age was said to have bought 'one of those new-fangled velocipedes' which was fitted with a wooden saddle, this proved excruciating. As luck would have it his father made leather saddles for horses, so the young man known as John Boultbee Brooks set to work in his fathers workshop designing and developing a comfortable saddle from leather. The rest they say is history....
Brooks experience in saddle making goes right back to the beginning - back to the period of solid tyres - and is unequalled by any other house in the world.
That said, they recognise the fact that they cannot rely on their past history alone, so they still build saddles with the same attitude as when they started, 'quality first', both in materials and manufacture. The testament to this is that there are still saddles in active use today, made many many years ago.
