I suppose _all_ since the longest dimension is the length as opposed to the height in a DF pannier.
It is short enough to fit easily on an underseat rack and the front edge is angled to conform to the
seat back of a recumbent. A traditional pannier has the leading edge trailing away to provide ample
heel clearance on a DF.

I just had a custom rack for a suspended Optima Rider put on in my LBS,and the Aviner (sp) pannier
fit perfectly. So I guess some are made so well that people think of them as 'recumbent specific'.
Makes sense: quality...recumbent. Recumbent...quality.

SWEET BAGS!

I have seen other bags made by Arkel. They are the best panniers for the money, IMHO.

Speaking of bags, has anyone used a Radical Universal bag on a RANS seat? How well does it fit/work?

BTW the Arkel looks like the same set that were pictured in the BROL Interbike report last fall.

I think Greenspeed was the instigator, but GS didn't want something exclusive because it would then
be more expensive. But you _may_ find that they work best on a GS trike. ;-)
