2009 Vaude Karakorum
Mega pannier and backpack all in one! This multifunctional rear pannier combination lends flexibility to any bike tour. Whether packing for a lengthy bike tour or loading a lot of stuff for a short trip the Karakorum offers you lots of choices. Stout construction and impeccable styling make this a favorite of many bike travelers. The top case converts to a backpack and features a simple back pad and shoulder straps. The side panniers can also individually be attached to the rear gear rack for as lighter, smaller configuration. The hardback backplate contributes a high degree of stability to the panniers. They are asymmetrically constructed, lightweight and durable. This pannier uses Vaude’s QMR attachment system, a top quality, technically advanced attachment system that can be quickly mounted and removed. 2 patch pockets and a zip outside pocket carry any items that you want readily available. Integrated reflective elements help keep you visible. When touring in wild places like Patagonia, Scotland and Florida, it is nice to have a pannier that can do it all. With so many options this pannier will have a configuration for every occasion. Combine the Karakorum with a set of front panniers for some serious cargo capacity!
