What Are Boosters?

By using Tailfin’s Boosters you can quickly and easily make your T1 rack fully compatible with other brands of pannier bag. Please note - this isn't a perfect science, some will fit better than others.

The T1 - a strong, beautiful and quick-release carbon bike rack

Do more with the bike(s) you love.

Quick and easy to fit or remove

Ingenious quick release design makes it simple for you to use one rack for all of your bikes or one bike for everything.

Installation film ›

Working with you to keep your ride smooth and stable

The rigid, wishbone-design carbon frame offers exceptional agility, with no sway or rattle.

Cares for your bike just as well as you do

The rubber grip fits to any seatpost (including deep aero) with no risk of damage.

When it comes to performance, every gram counts

The T1's lightweight carbon frame weighs just 350 grams (that's less than a can of coke).

Keep your rack protected and secure

Anti-theft security screws disable the quick release function and secure the rack to your bike.

No adjustments necessary

The ‘plug and play’ design avoids the need for any awkward adjustments, saving you time.

"Peerless stability, total absence of rattle, very light, incredibly quick and easy to fit and remove. 4.5/5"

Universally compatible with almost any bike

Our axle replaces yours and contains mounting points enabling the rack to fit almost any type of bike.

End the ride the way you started

The clip-on mudguard keeps spray off your back, ensuring you step off the bike as pristine as you stepped on.

Tried and tested to give you peace of mind.

The Tailfin carbon bike rack can take a load of up to 18kg (9kg per side), so there's no need to be selective about what you're carrying with you.

Already have your own bags? No problem

The T1 is compatible with virtually every other brand - simply attach the boosters.

Tyre clearance

The T1 is designed to fit close to the tyre, therefore the maximum tyre sizes are: 700x40C / 40-622 / 27.5X1.95 / 650Bx50 / 50-50-584

Axle type

Replace your axle with a Tailfin axle to mount the Tailfin rack. Most bicycles use a Quick Release axle, however, we also support the new Thru Axle standards (e.g. 12x142, 12x148, E-Thru, Syntace X-12, etc)

Axle type guide ›

Weight limit

The T1 is tested and ISO certified (ISO11243) to 18kg (9kg per side).

Great design, awesome product!

I bought the Tailfin rack to use on my trek crocket for commuting. I bought only the rack and have been using it with my Ortlieb Classis panniers. They fit very well into the rack (there's an optimal setup which took me few days to figure it out) and produce almost no rattle when running. It's a great product with a beautiful design, I'd totally recommend!

Excellent design and performance

I waited a while before submitting my review about my tailfin rack because I wasn't able to full test it according to my needs until now while doing some bikepacking around different type of surfaces.
As a rack to carry panniers is good as any other rack but I wanted to use it for a more adventurous setup on my CX bike to carry items such paddles, tent, fishing rod and dry bags without using paniers. With some basic modifications I could attach and carry all and the behavour of the rack-bike in all kind of terrains is great.
Good job!

Great piece of design and engineering

Great designs can solve complex problems with simplicity. Great piece of kit, perfect solution for my problem, wanted a easily removable rack when not needed, have tried clamp on systems that worked but where somewhat cumbersome. We’ll finished, light weight and solid product. Love it!
