Tortec Expedition Rear Rack review
Great value for money at under £30, this high grade aluminium rack is rated to 35kg and will happily handle a weekly shop or a full-on tour.
The Tortec design is a double platform, pushing the panniers away from your heels and offering extra clearance for bikes with shorter chainstays, like many modern mounatin bikes
The top platform is ideal for a rolltop bag, which won’t get in the way when you want to reach your panniers.
The only proviso is that being aluminium it’s best for smoother roads. The rack’s mounting arms are very adjustable and it comes with a range of high quality stainless steel bolts – we’ve yet to ﬁnd a frame we can’t ﬁt it to.
There’s an integrated universal light mount at the back too, and it’s available in black or silver.
