Warranty & Repairs

We proudly offer a lifetime guarantee for your Arkel product. Whether you purchased the bag directly from us, through a local bike shop, or even second-hand from an individual, this warranty is transferable and no receipt is necessary. This guarantee covers the workmanship, stitching and pieces such as the aluminum hooks, rails, nuts and screws, and inner stiffening backplate. In other words, in the unlikely event that your product has an inherent defect, a stitch does rip or a piece of equipment breaks, you can count on us to repair it at no extra cost. If it cannot be repaired to our high standards, we may offer you a new bag. Please keep in mind that in certain cases shipping fees may apply.

As much as you can trust our bags and panniers, please keep in mind that even the most well-maintained product is not made to last forever. Indeed, we give you our word that our products will last you a reasonable amount of years if used appropriately. We also ask you to respect the fact that we do not cover broken Arkel products due to wear and tear, abuse due to negligent use or damage caused by an accident. This applies to all of the pieces, from the fabric to the zippers. If you do find yourself in this unfortunate situation, you can count on us to repair it at a reasonable price.
