By pairing the T1 carbon rack with the SL's High-Frequency welded seams and roll-top design, the SL Package offers total protection from the elements without compromising on weight.
The T1's lightweight carbon frame weighs just 350 grams (that's less than a can of coke).

Convenient mounting points for a rear light and high-vis detailing help keep you seen and safe, no matter how far-flung the adventure.
Soft rubber grip fits to any seatpost (including deep aero) with no risk of damage.
The SL features a rigid, internal backbone that holds your belongings secure in all conditions.
Our beautiful designs allow you to carry belongings effortlessly - whether that be in town or on the open road.
The rigid, wishbone-design carbon frame offers exceptional agility, with no sway or rattle.
Optional security screws disable the T1’s quick-release function and secure the rack to your bike, giving you peace of mind when riding in the city.
Detachable mudguard lends protection from the elements, keeping your commute comfortbale and dry.

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)
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
The Super-Light and Ultra-Durable bags can take up to 22 litres of luggage and will fit a 17" laptop.

A beautiful product. I used on 5 day / 650km tour across Switzerland (+neighbors). Through cold and warm, sun and rain, flat and steep long climbs, they worked perfectly.
I found a solution to carry the bags when not on the bike (as others mentioned the carrying straps are not very practical) — simply turn both bags on their side and use the packing tethers as handles. It is very simple, comfortable and convenient.
Nick - you need to used facebook marketing! I had to search to find these existed. Quad-lock (another great product) showed up constantly in my feed as a biker. Also I would suggest you proactively send samples to boutique bike shops as they will love them. You will get a call from one i showed mine to on my trip!
Although I’m pleased with the product there were a couple of issues. First, the delivered rack and pannier bags was missing one of the arms which keeps the bag locked tight against the rack. No big deal as the weight of the bags did enough to ensure the bags didn’t move. The rack installed without a hitch. The bags were great, light but big enough to hold all my gear + laptop.
However the second issue needs to be given more thought.
After riding for 4 days (400 miles give or take) I noticed that one of the screws holding the bag locking mechanism had come out leaving just one screw to keep the locking bracket in place.
I did not realise when I purchased my Giant fathom mountain bike that it did not have a lower frame fixing point to accept a standard type pannier rack.
The only one that fitted the requirement was a tailfin T1, Unfortunately this rack fitted but was approximately 25mm too short in the main support legs and when the bag claws were fitted they rubbed on the tyre rendering this rack not suitable. However, James whom i spoke with assured me that they will extend the length and have another version in a couple of months that will fit. This does not help me now however I was very impressed by this product and could properly recommend it as it was easy to fit and remove quickly very lightweight and robust..
Excellent high-quality product which solves a problem, I had no idea actually could be solved.
The delivery was super fast and efficient, with good communications, just as well as I only found tailfin a week before my 6 day, 600k UK road trip. The T1 plus 2 x lightweight pannier bags were every bit as good as the reviews said they would be. My review: Beautifully designed, lightweight, super easy to fit ( once I'd worked out left from right), very stable, the right capacity in the bags, really neat mechanism to fix and remove panniers from thje fram, really liked the ability to fix a light to the rear; it will have hopefully encouraged cars to give a wider passing distance and finally, the all important envy of fellow cyclists ;). I am sure my buddy on the 6 day ride will buy one.
