The Patented Technology
Behind Our Bike Bags
Meet The Cam-Lock®
Simply put, the Cam-Lock® allows you to securely attach or quickly remove your bike bag from your rack in a matter of seconds.
The Cam-Lock® is loved by thousands of cyclists around the world because it is reliable thanks to the strength of the aluminium rail and hooks, all while being simple to use.
Pull up the handle, it opens the cams. Release the handle and the cams firmly lock on the rack tubing. No need for special inserts. The Cam-Lock® will automatically fit rack tubing of 8mm to 15mm diameter. Covers the vast majority of racks on the market.
The Cam-Lock® system is a patented technology used exclusively by Arkel. We think it is the best attachment system on the market. But do not take our word for it – ask the thousands of cyclists who use our panniers!
The Story Behind The
Each bag is handmade right here in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada and signed by the person who made it.
Hear From The Best
“The Arkel system is pretty bomb-proof if not a little heavy, but when you get this on your bike it’s not going to pop off by accident, even if you’re on the super rough road”
