"The 5L & 10L Mini Panniers are completely silent, waterproof, and more secure than anything else I’ve tried. Complete with variable straps, it’s hard to convey how well-engineered and thought through they are. For smaller riders especially, these Mini Panniers make all the difference in carrying capacity, without adding unduly to the overall weight of your rig. And, they’ll work with your existing, non-Tailfin racks too"

"If you’re looking for a versatile pannier that is perfectly suited for commuting while equally excelling as a rugged touring pannier, or if 16L strikes the right sizing balance for you, it’s hard to think of a bag that I could recommend more. This is especially true if you’ve already got an AeroPack or Tailfin’s rack, which integrate perfectly with the mount to create a waterproof and rattle-free system"

"For anyone who uses their bike for just about everything, be it touring or grocery shopping or riding to work, these one-size-does-most panniers really hit a sweet spot, and they’ve become our most oft-used bags. In terms of sizing for bikepacking specifically, they remain compact enough not to feel unwieldy when rolled down, despite what the numbers suggest. Plus, there’s ample expandable room for additional food on more remote trips or cold weather gear in winter"



FAQs

Yes, each mini pannier comes with a set of 'spacers', which allow you to fit to any front or rear rack.

Each pannier is shipped individually, NOT as a pair.

Yes, this is possible with second-generation 5L and 10L Mini Panniers. Conversion kits can be purchased here. It is not possible to convert a 16L Pannier though

Yes, they use the same type of connection as our SL22 and UD22 panniers and are retrofitted to ensure compatibility with the original Tailfin T1 Rack.

All Tailfin products come with a 5-year guarantee. For more information on this see our Tailfin Care guarantee.

Our Mini Panniers follow the same modular design as the rest of our products which means that all parts are replaceable and can be repaired at home if anything happens. Despite being made from durable materials we know accidents do happen. We offer a crash replacement policy to provide you with a replacement bag for a discounted price or in some instances if the damage isn't too severe we can repair most items. For more information on this see our Tailfin Care guarantee.

Yes, all mini panniers come with 2 sets of T-Hook compression straps. These straps are removable from the pannier quickly and easily, allowing you the flexibility of using or not using them, dependent on your carrying needs.

Yes, all our bags are high-frequency, ultrasonically welded, so are 100% waterproof - not a drop can enter the bag when closed, even in a torrential downpour.

They are secured to the rack via our X Clamp technology - a precision-engineered, CNC machined aluminium stop-action clamp which tightly secures the bag to the rack in 2 places, eliminating all rattle and movement when riding even off-road.

The bags remove and attach easily in a matter of seconds.
