Made from 100% waterproof cotton duck the Super C has been THE choice for countless expeditions due to its rugged, reliable nature & is the classic choice of many serious cycle tourists. They are perfect for any type of cycle touring especially when used in conjunction with the matching rear panniers & barbag. The patented Quick-Clip system allows secure but easy on and off fixing to the bike. All Super C bags come with a lifetime guarantee against defective materials & workmanship

Tech Specs:
- Material: Heavy duty black Cotton Duck
- Dimensions: H 27cm x W 32cm x D 16cm
- Fully waterproof
- Carradice Quick-clip pannier hooks will fit racks up to 13mm

Note: Sometimes when the cotton duck is new, the fabric needs to soften a little so that the fibres spread out for maximum waterproof protection. If used immediately in extreme conditions some leakage may occur (this is not common though). Extra reproofing might help.

ConsWater resistant not waterproof like roll top alternatives
ProsMaterial, external pocket, strength of fittings
Agricultural fitting compared to the German offerings, however the quality of the stitching and fabric is fantastic. Decent size with no internal pocket to snag and breathable material means my shopping doesn't sweat in the same way as my vaude panniers. Small external pocket useful for organising gear frequently used.

Secure fitting on front rack, used 2 hose clamps to further secure the bags

Used 1 full day where it would not stop raining, little bit of water at the bottom of bags, allthough this could easily have been duo to no front fender on my bike

The cotton should make the bags more breathable allowing for dampness to escape, the bags where not soaked after the 1 day of rain

Outerlayer is cotton duck, with some sort of waterproof material at the opening which can be pulled together, inside theres an additionel layer seperate from the cotton duck, bags are pretty solid/rigid without anything in them

Great product and fine price, the additional outside pocket comes in handy

These "super C" front panniers are a little bit pricey but you only get what you pay for i would not hesitate to recommend these superbly made bags or indeed the excellent services of SJS cycles who provided the best price and service possible
Superb! And Cavernous.

ConsNone, with reasonable care taken
ProsCavernous, rugged, easy mount, just the job
Everything they say about them. Top quality 'old school' panniers. Loads of room. Simplicity of design.

They look like they'll last forever. Time will tell.

Rack compatibility...
18 Jul 2018

Are these Carradice Super C Front Panniers compatible with the Thorn MkV Cro Mo Steel Lo-Loader (11576)?

I've used Altura Skye 13L (each) front panniers for the past 6 years on that rack with no issues, but they've now bitten the dust after 13 years, so looking for a replacement & these look a likely candidate at 14L each.
Hi there,

You should be able to use these panniers without an issue with that particular rack.

Clips supplied
29 Apr 2018
For the super C front panniers the pictures show a single clip as the mount: do you get three clips per bag (ie the quick release and two additional clips) as shown in your pictures for the same mounting system of the rear Super C panniers?
Hi there,

All the fittings your require are included with the panniers.

Does This Come As A Set Or Is This Price For A Single Pannier?
18 Apr 2017

The price on the website is for a pair.

Are These Compatible With The Tubus Tara Front Rack?
11 Apr 2017
I read somewhere that someone recommended another version of these bags with Rixen & Kaul mounting hardware, will Carradice's system still work?

These panniers are fine for use with a Tubus Tara front rack. They now only come with Carradice's own fitting system so will be fine.

13 May 2016
Would these, be suitable for rear use for short tour's?

You could indeed use these as rear panniers, but whether or not they are suitable for short tours depends completely on how much kit you are planning to take.

Mounting System
15 Jan 2015
The picture on your page seems to be showing the old version of the mounting system.
Are these panniers supplied with mounts as pictured or the new version seen in below link?


Our pictures match all of our stock. We order these directly form Carradice and have received some of these panniers identical to our pictures less than 1 month ago.

Supplied With Rixen/Kaul Klickfix Mountings ?
12 Jul 2014
If not, do you supply the accessories to convert over to the Rixen + Kaul
Klickfix mounting system ?

What accessories are required ?


As far as we're aware there is not a Klickfix fitting system for any panniers, Rixen and Kaul make pannier rails for certain companies but there is no Klickfix system for them. These panniers come with their own fitting system made by Carradice and would not be compatible with any rails made by Rixen and Kaul.
