Tailfin Carbon Bike Rack

Sure, it’s a few times the price of the ugly bike racks you’ve been reluctantly eyeing online. Even so, the Tailfin Carbon Bike Rack might be the first that’s worthy of its place on your ultra lightweight road bike. Install the included custom quick release skewers with built-in mounts and hook the mount up to either side as well as to your seat post, adding a total 275 grams of extra weight to your ride. Tailfin’s pannier bags weigh just 600 grams and are made of a waterproof, hard-wearing sailcloth laminate, each stabilized thanks to a rigid backbone on the inside and carrying up to 24 litres of goods. The whole setup can easily save you a pound or two off your final riding weight, making your commute or day trip all the more enjoyable.
