We are excited to announce that Arkel is now an official gear sponsor for the expedition. In my opinion Arkel makes the best panniers in the world, but they don't stop there, they also have racks, cycling wear, seat bags, rear trunks, and much more.
Arkeldesigns and builds the finest Bicycle Panniers for Bike Commuting, Mountain Biking, Bike Touring, or around-the-world Expeditions.
I have used Arkels Tail Rider
for 6 years and 60,000 miles
and it still is my only rear trunk!
"Our designs integrate countless hours of experience from the road and in the saddle and from tons of customer feedback. There’s no place better to gather information than from the road so yes we listen and we continually try to improve our saddlebags in all aspects. We back our products with a no hassle warranty so you get peace of mind when you purchase your Arkel equipment. We also provide what we hope is the best possible customer service you can expect from a pannier company. We are dedicated to the complete riding experience from beginning to end and we know bikes and will assist you with whatever question you may have on outfitting your bike for your next ride, urban commute, tour or off road adventure."
So if you are looking for panniers or bags to keep your gear or groceries in, or rain gear to keep you warm and dry, Arkel is the right choice, and tell them Bill sent you!
