Tailfin's mini pannier bags are a throwback to traditional touring set ups

A little lighter and lower profile than a tradition set, these bags have also been designed to cope with the higher stresses of off-road riding.

Having made its name with the innovative Aeropack, Tailfin has continued to expand its bikepacking range, now introducing a set of mini pannier bags in 5L and 10L sizes.

For those who dismissed bikepacking bags as merely a repackaging of the original cycle touring saddle bags from the likes of Carridice, this must be a delightful validation that everything is coming full circle.

After winning the 2019 National Single-Speed Cross-Country Mountain Biking Championships and claiming the plushie unicorn (true story), Stefan swapped the flat-bars for drop-bars and has never looked back. 

Since then, he’s earnt his 2ⁿᵈ cat racing licence in his first season racing as a third, completed the South Downs Double in under 20 hours and Everested in under 12.

But his favourite rides are multiday bikepacking trips, with all the huge amount of cycling tech and long days spent exploring new roads and trails - as well as histories and cultures. Most recently, he’s spent two weeks riding from Budapest into the mountains of Slovakia
