If you’re struggling to figure out a way to carry more gear on your bike, Tailfin might have the solution (as usual). The British company has become known for clever cargo solutions with fanatical attention to detail. Their new V-Mount Cargo packs continue that trend with the ability to carry gear without any extra mounts that won’t slip or damage your frame. As the name would imply, the V-Mount Packs use two V-shaped mounts that spread the load with a wide stance on round tubes. The mounts are crafted with an aluminum base plate and a removable rubber boot that goes over top and protects the frame from damage while keeping the pack in place.

The mounts are also adjustable to fit a variety of frames.
