We are Cody and Justin Greenwell, (brothers) with AK CODEPAK. After finding faults with other frame bags, backpacks, and panniers; we sat down and decided to start our business.
It is exciting to bring you our first product, the CODEPAK. Designed tested and hand built by us in Anchorage Alaska. When starting AK CODEPAK, we set out to build the premier bike cargo solution. A bike pack that was light, durable, and easy to open. Being a certified aircraft mechanic, Cody combined both his areas of expertise, biking and airplanes into a bike box like nothing else on the market today. Using aerospace materials and proven latch systems. We built a one of a kind, custom fit bike pack.
CODEPAKS come in two different options.
The Original - Built with aircraft grade aluminum, using proven aircraft fabrication techniques. The Original CODEPAK looks like it can fly. Light and strong, using the best aerospace latch systems. Like all CODEPAKS The Original is a work of art.
The Carbon - Same look and feel as The Original. Just made with carbon fiber. All bikers have a carbon addiction, feed your cravings with this ultimate accessory.
Whatever type of CODEPAK you choose, it is still custom fit to every size bike and frame. Here at AK CODEPAK we hand build a pack that once you install it will become part of your bike. Using the bike frames existing braze-ons, the CODEPAK is mounted securely to your bike like no bag on the market.
Having a hard shell is also an advantage over soft packs. The CODEPAK protects your gear, just like having a helmet. Built in two options aluminum and carbon fiber CODEPAKS are hard, but still extremely light. The hard shell of a CODEPAK lets us use proven aerospace latch systems. Meaning that your CODEPAK stays securely shut when it should, but opens with a simple push of a button. Also having a hard frame lets you customize your CODEPAK with stickers, try doing that with your soft packs. Nothing cooler than tagging your box with all your favorite brands and places. You make your pack, yours.
The latch makes a CODEPAK what it is. Aircraft approved, so you know it is extremely reliable. Having a push button latch a CODEPAK is the easiest to open pack you will ever own. No more taking off bulky gloves, or fighting stuck zippers. The latch is designed to make it fast and easy to access all of your belongings.
For more urban areas where theft is a concern, for $25.00 we can add a keyed lock to any CODEPAK. Once locked thiefs will not be able to open, or remove the CODEPAK from your bike. This is another advantage that only a CODEPAK can give you.
All CODEPAKS are hand built and custom fitted to your bike. So you get to pick the depth of your box. You can have the box be as little as 1.5" or as wide as your cranks will allow. When you order your AK CODEPAK we will contact you with some information we need to know. Make, Model, Size, and Year of your bike. If we have already built a pack for your size and type of bike great. All you need to tell us is how thick to build your box. If we have never built a pack for your frame you are still in luck. We will send you our CODEPAK Fit Kit free of charge. Follow are detailed instructions included with our kit, and send it back to us with our prepaid shipping and we will start building your pack right away.

Risks and challenges
AK CODEPAK can say that the hardest part about creating our product is already behind us. We designed, tested, and built our packs in Alaska. Now if our KICKSTARTER goal is hugely surpassed, making all of the boxes in a timely manner could become a problem for us. We will do our best to keep up with the demand, and we will keep our customers up to date on when there CODEPAK will arrive. AK CODEPAK works on a first come first serve basis, so sooner you order the better.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
