  • The T1 rack is compatible with nearly any road, touring, hybrid or commuter bike. Its carbon frame is both strong and ultra-light, weighing just 350g. Its innovative quick-release design means that it can be fitted and removed in seconds, so you can easily switch it between bikes. Alternatively, if you wish to swap the rack between bikes without swapping the axle, then additional axles can be purchased.

    The T1 has been specifically designed for Tailfin’s SL and UD pannier bags in order to create a seamless, integrated luggage system that works beautifully with your bike. To use your own pannier bags you can purchase two boosters that make it fully compatible with traditional pannier bags here. The clip-on mudguard is included. 

    Tailfin stocks two pannier bag designs: the SL (Super-Light) and the UD (Ultra-Durable). Both models are 100% waterproof and have a 22 litre capacity. At 650g, the SL is one of the lightest pannier bags on the market, designed for those who want to travel fast. The UD is constructed with thicker, tougher walls and features a waterproof external pocket, weighing in at 800g. Simply choose the design that best suits your riding.
