As seen on National Geographic, Hartmut Ortlieb's pannier bags are widely considered to be the benchmark for all panniers and his messenger bags are now a cult favourite amongst professional bicycle couriers. Designed and manufactured in Germany, with an extensive spares & accessories catalogue plus five-year warranty, nothing quite comes close to the quality of an Ortlieb.
Germany's Tubus bends high-tensile Titanium and Cr-Mo tubing into bicycle racks. As testament to the longevity and value of the Tubus brand, the venerable Cargo and Tara carriers have only gone through minimal changes in design and detail in almost twenty years. Strong and lightweight, Tubus racks are exceptional when combined with Ortlieb panniers. There is simply no alternative.

Good Horse manufactures some of the most recognisable brands of handlebar tape out of Taoyuan, Taiwan. This small family-run company took a wee departure from OEM production with its own interpretation: eco-friendly EVA foam wrap with tapered edges, completely bio-degradable packaging and 16 splashes of colour.
Designed in Melbourne’s inner north, Allegro bicycles are the work of Richard Ayling, who desired to produce an Australian bicycle with as much local design and production as possible while minimising the social and environmental impacts of manufacturing. Ayling is an avid musician and his custom-designed bicycle bells are tuned to no less than pitch-perfect specifications... without a doubt an eclectic bit of Australian cycling history.
In a sleepy town in northwest Germany named Quakenbrück, Dan (aka Frau Ackmann) and Bob Giddens dream of a world where people will learn how to buy only what they would use. ‘We talk too much about price and not enough about needing and using the products. A bike that costs 300 euros isn’t expensive if you use it… but it is, if the brakes don’t work or the saddle hurts.’ Planet-USED products have won many awards in Europe for innovative design and ethics.
