Robust and Practical, In the City and on Tour
The bag’s stable, free-standing body is made of a PVC-free nylon textile with polyurethane coating. This allows for a robust, abrasion-resistant and – as always from Ortlieb – waterproof performance. The E-Glow is secured with double magnetic snap closures, and can be opened with a quick pull of the loop. The hem on the bag’s upper lip is raised and pre-folded, providing additional protection against unwanted water and moisture. Since neither the TIZIP zipper nor the rolltop can close at the top, the E-Glow has a protection rating of “only” IP54, meaning the bag is fairly dust- and waterproof as well as highly resistant to moisture in general. Simply put: perfect for touring and urban cycling. A small mesh pocket, located under the reflective Ortlieb logo on the front side of the bag, provides additional storage. Included also is an additional shoulder strap, which can be easily attached by clicking it onto the bag’s side slots.
Handy Bottle Cage on the Side
Average e-bike batteries take up a lot of space on the inside of a frame, leaving bottles unable to be readily accessed. The E-Glow was developed to solve this unique problem by incorporating a special feature: integrated mounting rails for bottle cages on either side of the bag. Drinks can be securely and conveniently deposited on either the right- or left-hand side of the bag. The maximum load, however, must always be kept in mind: according to Ortlieb, the mount cannot take on more than five kilograms.
