TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards 2017

The Tailfin Carbon Rack and Waterproof Panniers allow cyclists to commute or tour on the road bikes they love. Weighing only 650 g per pannier and 350g for the rack, the patented design is engineered to fit almost any road bike, without any tools and just in seconds. The product is certified to carry up to 18 kg (ISO11243). Until now, carrying ”stuff” whilst riding has always been a compromise: backpacks are only suitable for short distances and light loads; existing racks and panniers are heavy, unsightly, prone to rattling, and incompatible with modern road bikes. Tailfin is a complete redesign of a bike accessory which has remained almost unchanged for 50 years.
