Velocity Pannier Rack

Much narrower and more streamlined than regular racks, the Velocity is the perfect pannier carrier for fast commuter / audax bikes with tyres no wider than 700x26 or 26x1.25 inch.

  • Keeping the weight close to the centre improves stability, cornering and aerodynamics.
  • TIG-welded 10mm-diameter alloy tubing - stronger than narrower alloy rod.
  • Stainless steel fittings.
  • LED rear lamp mounting plate - stronger than any bracket.
  • 25kg load capacity.
  • 470g.

I have had this rack for a while now and it is excellent. I use it on my Giant road bike and it was really easy to adjust the arms to fit the frame. It is extremely lightweight, whilst strong enough to handle two heavy panniers. It is also very easy to remove when you want to head out for baggage free spin! 
Well worth the money.

A rack that makes your bike look sexier!
Perhaps you consider screwing a square box girder to your prize road bike as sacrilege? Well not with this rack - it's sloping sides hug the sleek outline of your 23C's, and seamlessly integrates itself into a fine extension of the frame - like a alien spider craft delicately poised over the rear wheel.
Lo and behold you now have an even nicer looking bike which can also carry a tremendous amount of shopping back from the supermarket. How could you improve your bike's functionality more?
Ask a question
Q. Will this fit a Revolution Continental over the top of the shop-fitted mudguards?
A. The rack should fit but depending on the position of your mudguards it may be a tight fit.
Q. Will this fit the Whyte Dorset 2016?
A. This will not fit the Whyte Dorset
Q. Will this rack fit my Van Nicholas Yukon with Ultegra wheels and 700 25c tyres? I'm guessing the sks mudguards will  need to be removed?
A. Yes this should certainly fit your Van Nicholas Yukon and you shouldn’t need to remove your mudguards in order to do so, they should just fit underneath.
Q. Will this fit a Whyte Portobello ?
A. Due to the limited tyre clearance of the rack, this will not fit the Whyte Portabello.
Q. How do i add the plastic attachments to the back plate of the pannier to attach lights to it?
A. Thanks for your question. We're not quite sure we understand your question - broadly, however, this will depend on the light. The plate has spaces to take standard reflector mounts so most reflectors will fit by removing the bracket. For lights it will depend on the style of mount, we would recommend a light like the CatEye LD500.
Q. I have recently purchase a rear carrier and pannier for my road bike. Would you recommend reducing tyre pressure when carrying a pannier as I have noticed an increase in punctures even though I've also fitted a pair of the all weather armadillo tyres. All advice would be much appreciated.
A. With a rack and panniers fitted we would recommend increasing rather than lowering your tyre pressure. A higher pressure shouldn't affect the comfort of your ride and should help with puncture resistance. Increasing pressure should help compensate for the extra weight of the panniers.
