Tubus Tara Front Rack

Our review

The best front rack: rigid, light, repairable and folds away flat for transport
Skip to view product specifications

The whole Tubus range of racks is pretty much as good as it gets, including the two-tiered, heavy duty Cargo and the midweight Vega.


We particularly like the Tara front rack for its elegance and simplicity. It’s easy to fit, very adjustable and relatively light, given that it’s made from tough, repairable chromoly tubing.

Best of all, though, it packs down almost flat, so will slot easily into a bike box or bag for transporting your trusty wheels around the globe to your starting destination. 

Positioning the load low on your bike will help provide stable, predictable steering, though at the cost of some ground clearance.


The Tara is rated to 15kg, there are eyelets for fitting a mudguard, and it’s compatible with 26in and 700c wheels.
