Brooks expands luggage line with Expedition bags

Brooks England is of course best known for its bicycle saddles, but in recent years the brand has expanded well beyond with all manner of accessories that perfectly match the classic style of the bikes that so often bear its saddles.

brooks-panniers

Norfolk and Suffolk panniers

This pair of front and rear panniers might look like they’re made from a classic cotton canvas material, but they’re actually a lightweight and waterproof synthetic. The material is Bluesign certified, meaning it is manufactured in an environmentally responsible way. They all feature an external pocket as well as stretchy side pockets for water bottles or small items. The Norfolk front panniers hold 10 to 13 liters of cargo each and the Suffolk rear panniers hold 18 to 22 liters. They are built around the Ortlieb QL2 attachment system that features an integrated handle for carrying them off the bike. They are each available in three colors: black, green and dove. The Norfolk sells for €100 each (which is about $109) and the Suffolk is €120 each ($130).

brooks-isle-of-wight

Isle of Wight saddle bag

A classic saddlebag for tools and tubes, the Isle of Wight is made from the same synthetic material as the panniers with genuine Brooks leather accents. It has twin zipper access in each of the three available sizes: 0.8 liters, 1.2 liters and 1.8 liters. Also available in black, green or dove it is made in Italy and sells for €50 to €60 ($54 to $65).

brooks-isle-of-skye

Isle of Skye handlebar bag

Rounding out the package is the Isle of Skye handlebar bag, also made from the Bluesign waterproof material. A great option for carrying the basics with you on the bike and easily taking them with you off the bike, the Isle of Skye attaches with the Ortlieb KlickFix system. The detachable shoulder strap means you can detach it from your bike and take it wherever you need to. It holds approximately 9 liters of gear and retails for €145 ($158). It is only available in the dove color.
