What is good about these Axiom Panniers

Good construction – made from good fabric, 600D polyester, these panniers are shaped for a centered load that is less wind resistant than other models.

Rain protection – this set is rain resistance which will handle many weather situations. However when the rain really starts to pour just pull out the rain covers (included) located in the top of the pannier which are a bright yellow color for visibility.

Large size – these are lightweight panniers, yet you will have good storage capacity for all your belongings. There is added pockets including a large one on the front and mesh side pocket. Also there is a sort of expandable pocket on the top, handy for placing items you need to reach quickly.

Bungee cords – in addition there are bungee cords on the top for storing a jacket. When bicycle touring many cyclists use this these bungee cords for drying their clothes while riding.  There also compression straps so you can adjust for larger loads, particularly if you have camping equipment.

Easy mounting – adjustable hooks fit 6mm – 20mm racks which along with the bungee system provide a quick and secure bag attachment. They are preset to fit Axiom racks. In addition there is a shoulder strap clips to carry the panniers when you arrive at your destination although the straps themselves are not included.

What customers say about these Axiom Panniers

Rating: ★★★★★

There were plenty of reviews for these bicycle panniers. Numerous reviewers commented on how much they liked the rain covers, although they pointed out that the bags themselves are rain resistant in a drizzle even without the cover.

Reviewers felt there was plenty of room for their bicycle touring gear even when camping.

Most reviewers felt they are easy to mount and take off.

Easy to take on and off. Comes with a rain cover for each as the adjustable cords make it easy to fit them to any rack, and they can be attached/removed in seconds.

One reviewer stated, “the mounting mechanism is truly universal. Aside from Ortliebs which are double the price, most claim a universal mount but only adjust up to 14mm rails. The Axioms use a clever spring loaded philips screw adjustable mechanism and bungee cord that will accomodate up to 20mm rails. While not as nice as the QL2 system, in my opinion these are the next best thing.”

Several reviewers also commented on the convenient shock cords located on the top where you can quickly attach a jacket when not in use.
