Arkel hands out details on new Catrike frame bags

I won't call it the worst kept secret of trike accessories, but I will say that it's a relief that all of the parties involved have now admitted to what we already knew.  Arkel and Catrike have created rack bags for the Catrike Trail, Expedition, and 700 trikes.

The bags were first "revealed" at the last Catrike factory tour and rally, where attendees walked away wishing they could have bought them on the spot. Then they were shown in Paulo's factory tour video. And now Arkel is spilling the already spilled beans on what are admittedly very cool looking bags.

Here's the word from Arkel:

Yes, it's official! The Catrike bags are ready to go! We've tried to keep this one under the covers as long as we could but it's now time to spill the beans and tell everyone about the new bags for the Trail, Expedition and 700 trikes from Catrike. These bags are made right here in North America from 100% recycled 600 denier polyester fabric with foam and high density polyethelene stiffeners. These new bags will be sold in pairs and fit snuggly on each trike. No rack necessary! The new designs are made to carry from the frame and require no other hardware. MSRP $129.99/pair. You may contact Arkel or Catrike directly for more info.

So there you have it, $130 a pair for bags that fit perfectly in the seat frame nook of Catrike trikes. Below is an image that was distributed with the Arkel e-mail announcement.
