FAQ
Racks

Are your bag racks suitable for all bikes?

Zéfal bag racks are designed for all types of bikes. The Discovery and Raider Universal just need screw holes on the frame, like most mountain, road and urban bikes have. The Rodeo is mounted to the seat post meaning there should be no concerns over its compatibility except if the seat post isn’t round.


Can Zéfal bag racks be used with branded competitor bags?

The Raider (Front and Universal) and Discovery bag racks are compatible with side panniers with traditional fixings on the structure.

Be wary of bespoke, unique fixings from other brands as they will not necessarily be compatible with Zéfal bag racks. 


Which of your bag racks are compatible with disc brakes?

All of our bag rack models are compatible with bikes with disc brake except for Discovery. Its mounting system won’t let a disc pass.


Which model of bag rack would you suggest for a full-suspension bike?

The Rodeo bag rack is the most practical model for rear-suspension bikes as it fits to the seat post. It is important to note that the maximum load is 9kg because this type of suspension makes that part of the bike the most mobile.


Can I put a bag rack on my carbon fibre bike?

We do not recommend putting bag racks on bikes with a carbon fibre frame or using the Rodeo on a carbon fibre seat-post.


What is the maximum weight that you can put on the bag rack?

RAIDER UNVERSAL

Can I remove a wheel without removing the bag rack?

The fixings for our bag racks are either on the frame or on the seat post. The wheel is therefore independent and can be removed.
