The rigid, wishbone-design carbon frame offers exceptional agility, with no sway or rattle.
The rubber grip fits to any seatpost (including deep aero) with no risk of damage.
The T1's lightweight carbon frame weighs just 350 grams (that's less than a can of coke).
Anti-theft security screws disable the quick release function and secure the rack to your bike.
The ‘plug and play’ design avoids the need for any awkward adjustments, saving you time.

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)

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!
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.
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!
Very easy to setup. Installed the rack on my commuter race bike. Becomes part of the bike, like it is not there. Great product !
