Built for adventure

By pairing our T1 rack with Tailfin's most durable pannier bag, the UD Package provides the perfect solution for bikepacking adventures off the beaten track. 

Waterproof, without compromise

Featuring High-Frequency welded seams and a roll-top design, the UD offers total protection from the elements, however extreme the conditions.

Equipment you can rely on

Constructed from a robust Hypalon rubber laminate, the UD Package is built for the toughest bikepacking adventures - days when when you need absolute faith in your equipment. 

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).

Universally compatible with almost any bike

The T1 rack is compatible with nearly any road, touring, hybrid or commuter bike. No matter what you ride, the UD Package will work seamlessly. 

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.

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.

A secure and rattle-free ride

The UD features an aluminium cam-action clamp that totally eliminates any annoying rattle, allowing you to focus on what’s important.

Everything I expect and more.

It's not the cheapest rack on the market but it's a fair price for this product.
Light, durable and extremely easy to fit and use.
I'm using it for an everyday road to work on my carbon road bike and works perfectly.
For the first installation, I need few more minutes to figure out how to use included spacers (documentation does not include this part)

Pretty good but some reservations

I use the Tailfin for my commute to work on my carbon bike. The rack is easy to install, light and sturdy, and supports the UD pannier well with little "wobble". The Pannier as whole looks good and appears that it will be very waterproof, I have not managed to test this aspect yet as the weather has been surprisingly good . The one criticism I have is the quality of the clip closures, they do not seem that sturdy, being made of thin plastic, but having said that they have not yet failed.

Very very light and sturdy

I bought the Tailfin for use on my 2018 Specialized Roubaix carbon DI2. Very easy to install and even easier to detach when not using. I bought the extra sturdy bags and they look and feel like they are ready for the long haul. Great product!
Getting ready to take my rig the length of the Atlantic Coast. This is my eighth cross country trip and my gear is getting lighter and lighter, due to innovations like Tailfin. Can’t wait to get on the road again!

so far, so good

After researching online, these tailfin waterproof bags do not disappoint. The ease of fixing them onto the elegant frame on the rear wheel is just so simple!
While riding I am often looking back to see if the bags are still on the bike, because I do not have the impression there is extra weight or that the bike is less stable. (However in 2 days I will be filling to maximum capacity for a 10 day tour...I hope that won't change my mind.)
