Arkel Bike Parts & Accessories
We’ve come a long way from our humble beginnings in 1988 when Serge set out to design what he thought was the best bicycle pannier bag available to cyclists period! This was the birth of Arkel. From the very first pair of touring panniers he made for himself, to every touring, off-road, commuter and randonnuer pannier with Arkel’s name on it sold through your favorite local bike shop, one thing remains true - we build panniers because we care about your experience on the bike. We’ve always made, and will continue to create, panniers from the best fabric (Cordura - made in the United States), the best zippers (YKK), the best hook systems (aluminum) with sound designs, that work... and make your tour, commute or bike ride more satisfying. We’re making the planet a better place to live by promoting cycling through advocacy with our partners from Velo Quebec, The Bicycle Trade Association of Canada (BTAC), Adventure Cycling and The League of American Bicyclists.
Our designs integrate countless hours of experience in the saddle and from tons of customer feedback. There’s no better place than the open road to gather information. We listen and continually try to improve our saddlebags. We back our products with a no hassle warranty so you have peace of mind when you purchase Arkel. We also provide the best possible customer service anywhere.
