Arkel Pannier And Rack Fit Guide Know Before You Buy!

We’ve created a chart to help you select the best pannier/rack combo for your needs. Our hook systems will fit most racks, but there are always exceptions.

See the chart below to determine pannier and rack compatibility. Because of the number of racks out there it is not possible to list them all. If the rack you use or are considering is not listed below, feel free to email us. We’ll research and try to confirm the fit. Once confirmed we’ll add it to the fit chart.

  • Notes: In some cases, the distance between the horizontal bar, where the hooks mount, and the lower bar where the Tubus Bagholder clamps are positioned, is too short. This problem can be solved by mounting two hose clamps, or fuel line hose clamps, on the lower bar instead of the Tubus Bagholder clamps. With the hose clamps in place, clip the wire hook directly to the rack. This will prevent the hook from sliding off.
