Details

Easy to install, resistant, stable and light, the Randonneur Rack meets your needs. Seat post rack with dual attachment points to provide unequaled strength and stability.

Compatible With Carbon & Aero Seat Posts
Thanks to the flexible seatpost mount, this rack will adjust and mold seamlessly to carbon and aero seatposts, without the danger of damaging or denting the post.

Dual Attachment Points
With its dual attachment points, the Arkel Randonneur Rack is designed to combine both strength and stability with a very lightweight structure. The vertical load is carried by the seat rails while the seat post abutment point provides the exceptional lateral and vertical stability to the system. Moreover, the soft rubber seat post bracket acts like a shock absorber to dampen shocks from rough road conditions. Click here to view the installation video.

This seat post rack is strong, light, stable, goes on and off in seconds and adjusts to fit both longer or shorter seat post set ups. A sleek quick release bracket attaches to both sides of the seat rails, forming rock-solid attachment points. The front of the rack gently envelopes the seat post with a soft rubber clamp that is secured with a velcro strap. The three point attachment system of the Randonneur Seat Post Rack brings unequalled stability – it feels like it’s bolted on to the frame! Move it from bike to bike depending on what type of riding you want to do.

Fits Most Bikes
The Randonneur Rack will fit most bikes with regular saddles. The minimum clearance required between the seat rails and the top of the bicycle seat tube is 4 inches (10cm) for the short setup and 7 inches (18 cm) for the long setup.

Aluminum Frame and Reinforced Nylon Bracket
The outer frame is made of 10mm diameter aluminum tubing. The seat rails bracket is made of virtually unbreakable reinforced nylon.

Soft Rubber Seat Post Bracket Dampens Shocks
The Santoprene seat post bracket acts like a shock absorber to dampen the shocks from rough road conditions. Think of trying to drive a nail with a rubber mallet instead of a regular hammer. This greatly reduces the impact on your bike’s components not to say that your ride will be that much smoother.

Exceptional Lateral Stability
While regular beam racks clamped solely to the seat post tend to rotate around the post when the rear of the rack is pushed sideways, the dual attachment points of the Randonneur Rack provide exceptional lateral stability.

Ideal for the TailRider
The Randonneur Rack is ideal for carrying our immensely popular TailRider, or any top rack trunk bag for that matter.

Gentle on Seat Rails
The reinforced nylon seat rails bracket is designed so that the nylon wings of the bracket will bend slightly if ever the quick release mechanism is over tightened. This protects the seat rails from dents or damage.

Gentle on Seat Post
The soft seat post bracket merely abuts against the seat post. It is not clamped hard on it like regular beam racks. There is no risk of denting the seat post and a simple wrap of electrical tape can be applied at the seat post contact area to keep a perfect finish to the seat post.
