When it comes to performance, every gram counts

Be seen, ride safe

Convenient mounting points for a rear light and high-vis detailing help keep you seen and safe, no matter how far-flung the adventure.

Smartest rack system I've seen!

I've put the rack and panniers on my Trek Domane and I'm extremely pleased. My bike requires the through axel which I received but the instructions lack direction on inserting the axel correctly with the right spacer. Other than that, I trust this system and I'm very excited to try it out on some cross-country trips! The rack folds pretty flat so that will help immensely when packing up my bike to fly. Overall this company is pretty awesome with great customer service. Highly recommend!!!

Amazing load capacity

Tailfin gave my bike the load I wanted.
I began to carry as much baggage as I wanted.
Regrettably, the weight of the SL bag that was written as 650g was 820g when it was measured.

Hi, the optional internal pocket weighs 170 grams which is removable - we measure the weight of the bag with this removed. To remove, simply loosen the top 5 screws (no need to remove them), then lift the pocket out. I apologise that this information was not more visible before purchase. We are working on a new internal pocket that is lighter weight to reduce the overall weight of the bag. Stay tuned! Thank you.

Greatest bike rack ever!!

Just received my new Tailfin carbon rear rack and pannier. The rack is shockingly light and sleek looking. Installation is easy and I barely notice it on my bike, which is great because I need to use the same bike for commuting and longer riding. The pannier bag is also nice looking, holds a lot of gear and although I haven’t tested yet, seems like it will be perfectly waterproof. I have been searching a long time for the perfect bike rack solution and feel like I have found it in Tailfin. It’s worth every penny!

Excellent pannier rack and bike bags! You get what you pay for.

I use the waterproof bike bags every day to commute to work. The rides range from 5 kilometre to 32, on my roadster/gravel bike. You don't want to spend any more time than you have to attaching/removing gear from your bike, and with the bags I can un attach in seconds. Weight is fantastic as is build quality. I transport rain clothing, electrical goods, cash, drinks, the contents are always dry. Great design, perfect fit and quality materials make this a real winner! I will be buying from them again, great product.
