Recumbent touring in style! If you'd like to tour extensively and always wanted enough volume to do more than just an overnight ride, then our RT series of bags are just what you need! The RT40's can be used on mid-ship or rear recumbent racks.

Carry handle
Like all Arkel panniers, the RT-40 has a handle for off the bike convenience. The handle is long enough for a good grip but never so long that it will flap down and rub on the bike wheel. We make sure that this is never an option, as safety has no price.

D-ring For Optional Shoulder Strap
A single RT40 pannier can be carried with a shoulder strap or you can put the pair back to back and shoulder top them together, very practical if you're in transit by plane, train or automobile.

Reflective Band
Reflective piping and stripes are added for increased visibility in darker conditions.

Reflective zipper pulls
The zipper pulls are weaved with reflective material as well!

Front Mesh Pocket
Outer, easy access storage is always convenient when riding. Provides a great place to stow or air dry clothing, stash snacks or your rain cover.

Front Pocket
The front pocket provides extra volume for the stuff you need quick access to.

Side Mesh Pocket
This mesh pocket faces forward and provides superb access from the riding position when used with a mid-ship rack.

Water Resistant Zippers
We use YKK water resistant zippers in this highly exposed area. These zippers provide excellent water shedding ability.

Our unique TFL® design
The main compartment can be opened on three sides (Total Front Loading). Our panniers become virtually as easy to pack as a regular travel suitcase.

Side Tube Pocket
The rear facing tube pocket allows extra storage at the back of the pannier. We've highlighted the pocket with reflective material so you'll be seen on the road.

Internal aluminium Frame
The internal aluminum frame creates a top shelf and prevents the pannier from sagging.

Internal Flat Pocket
The internal liner can double as a pocket for files, magazine or a newspaper. As long as it's flat, it will fit.

#10 YKK Zipper on main compartment
As with all Arkel panniers we use only the best zippers and nickel-plated sliders from YKK.
