Arkel Bags for Bikes, Recumbent Bikes and Trikes
No one can predict the weather with 100% accuracy, and on an extended tour you are sure to run into at least a little rain now and then. To keep your panniers and gear dry, rain covers are an indispensable accessory. Arkel makes them out of yellow ultra light 1.9 oz Silicon Coated Ripstop Nylon, so they are feather light and don't take up much room. An elasticized drawstring allows them to be adjusted to fit the load and piece of stretch micro mesh fabric at the bottom allows any water that gets inside to drain. Besides keeping your panniers dry, rain covers also help keep them clean. We all know that the grit and grime that we can pick up on wet roads is some of the hardest dirt to get out. It is also detrimental to the pannier fabric. Washable rain covers help your panniers look better and last longer. Sizes available to fit all Arkel panniers and the handlebar bag.
Based on Arkel's time tested designs, the B-26 panniers are simple, versatile, and built with value in mind. Large main pockets with long zippers and front-loading design offer easy access to your gear, while compression straps with reflective accents keep everything stable and secure. Coated Cordura fabric makes for a high-mileage, tough-as-nails product that repels water and protects your luggage out there on the open road. Designed with both front and rear racks in mind, the bungee mounting system features nylon cushioned hooks for scratch-free installation, and a manually operated locking swivel to make sure the pannier stays put. - Position: Front or Rear - Weight: 1.35g / 2.9 lbs (pair) - Volume: 26 L / 1600 cu. in.
