Lomo Panniers.

Post by Brenhden » Sat Jun 09, 2018 8:17 am

Morning all, just seen Lomo are launching bike panniers next week.

I'll try and post a photo. I think they are Β£50 a set.

I expect they will be extremely popular!

Cheers

Lomo stuff is normally very good but at Β£50 a set
Well that immediately questions their quality.

It doesn't seem out of line with the prices of the other motorcycle gear.

Most motorcycle-specific kit is very overpriced and poor quality.

I don't know how the makers of hard panniers can justify the prices they charge for what are just crude metal boxes with brackets.

Interesting. I've been using a pair of these:

Strapped to the side of the bike for a few years now. Not as convenient as bike specific stuff but at Β£14 each I won't complain.

I suspect they wouldn't fair too well in a high speed slide along the road, but they've taken a few low speed drops without noticing.

Doesn't that say everything about the modern middle class snob. If it's cheap it must be rubbish, how very British.

I think its fine to question quality. I've had enough low price, high quality Lomo stuff to have built faith in the brand, if I hadn't it would be a concern. In the service world you can generally only have one of the two.

A better question would be whether they will get reviewed alongside their rivals fairly. A big expensive 'sponsor' rival would be well hacked off if these were reviewed as equal quality.

Time will tell.
