Now in stock: Arkel bags and racks

Arkel is a Canadian company based in Sherbrooke, not far from Montreal, Quebec. They started in 1988 to design the best bicycle pannier bags available to cyclists, period. They have succeeded in becoming the first choice in pannier bags for serious long-distance riders. They use only the best materials and construction available, starting with Cordura fabric (that's made in the USA), heavy-duty YKK zippers, and durable aluminum hooks and other hardware.

Century Cycles is now proud to make a selection of fine Arkel products available in our three stores. Their signature GT-54 rear and GT-18 front panniers provide the best on-the-bike storage and protection for your gear that money can buy, whether your adventures take you around town or around the world. For adventures closer to home, the seatpost-mounted Randonneur Rack and matching Tail Rider Trunk Bag provide just enough space for long day rides and weekend jaunts. For the full list of products that we have in stock, see:

Arkel stands behind their products not only with a lifetime warranty, but they personally put them to the test themselves! As evidence, follow Louise, the wife of company owner Paul McKenzie, as she embarks this month on a 14,000-kilometer (over 8,600 miles) ride from Beijing to London. This 5-month cycling adventure will take Louise and the 80 other participants through China, Kirghizstan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Russia, Moldavia, Bulgaria and so on all the way to London, via Paris!
