Microwave Panniers are a from-scratch rethinking of the traditional bicycle pannier. Modular, ultra-secure, truly waterproof, and super light, they are equally suited to riding rough trails as they are to urban living. Approaching the design of a pannier from basic functional principles, we landed on a two-part system: a quick-access RF-welded drybag, and a rugged holster that stays securely on any rack. The stiff, HDPE back plate attaches to any rack, using laced Voilé Straps® for an upper mounting system that can't move in any direction. Five lower slots provide a multitude of options for securing the bottom of the pannier, and keeping things totally rattle-free.

The Microwave pannier mounting system is probably unlike anything you've ever seen, and potentially bewildering at first. Mounting these panniers is novel, but the reward will be an incomparably secure set of panniers. Please give the MOUNTING INSTRUCTIONSa careful read, and don't hesitate to CONTACT US if you have any questions.
There are many options for lower mounting, using combinations of the five lower slots. The best solution for securing the bottom of the pannier will depend on your rack. Check out this GALLERY for several examples of lower mounting solutions.
