Karakorum Pro Bag for Bike Travel

Sustainably organized

The Karakorum Pro bike bag makes versatility, organization and sustainability a priority! The upper part of the triple gear rack bag can be removed in a few easy steps and transformed into a spacious backpack. In addition, the cleverly divided bike bag consists primarily of recycled materials.

The Karakorum Pro bike bag tidies up – in the truest sense of the word. Because this gear rack bag is a real space and organizational wonder. The top case of the triple bag has a total capacity of 65 liters and can be removed and converted into a separate backpack. This makes the Karakorum Pro bike bag the perfect choice for biking trips that involve exploring your surroundings on foot as well.

Clever layout

The Karakorum Pro is tailored to the needs of trekking cyclists. It consists of three parts – two symmetrical side bags with a large main compartment, smaller separate front and mesh pockets, and the top case in the middle, which can be converted into a backpack.

The top case / backpack can be loaded and unloaded quickly and easily with a large U-shaped zip on the bottom and/or back. The main compartment has a divider and bottom access compartment that can be loaded separately. The two outer side pockets are used to store smaller items – on one side with mesh inserts for wet or dirty items, the other side is closed to keep your valuables safe. Your gear and apparel will always be well organized in the Karakorum Pro and you'll easily be able to access your most important items. 

Secure attachment

Like its relatives from other VAUDE pannier series, the Karakorum Pro features the QMR 2.0 attachment system, which guarantees user-friendliness and a secure connection to your gear rack. Leaving your bike for a short time on your journey won't be a problem – the QMR 2.0 system can be locked with a padlock, so opportunistic thieves won't stand a chance.

Traveling in harmony with nature 

We've saved the best for last with the Karakorum Pro – ecological integrity. Its primary material is 100 percent recycled polyester. Sustainability was also a key issue in choosing its other materials as well. This means that the Karakorum Pro is not only an environmentally friendly way to travel by bike – but also allows you to travel with a clear ecological conscience.
