Top Features of the TorTec Expedition Alloy Rear Rack

About Pannier Racks
Bicycle racks give your bike versatility, it means you can go shopping, commute to work with a change of clothes, or go touring. It's safer and more comfortable to carry weight on the bike, rather than in a backpack. It keeps the centre of gravity low down and means less weight on your hands and bum. A good quality rack will support either a rack pack or, for larger loads, a pair of panniers. Racks which fit directly onto the frame are best, but for full suspension models, seat post mounted racks are also very effective. Disc brakes are also no longer a problem, with more and more brands making disc specific bicycle racks.

Magazine reviews for TorTec Expedition Alloy Rear Rack
Review from Cycling Plus
Like the popular Tubus Logo, the Tortec Expedition uses a dual level design - panniers are mounted below, with plenty of easily accessible space on the top for strapping on extras. As well as offering a lower centre of gravity, this also shunts the pannier back back by 5cm, ideal for use on mountain bikes with typically short stays. The rack comes complete with a wide range of bolts and adapters for smaller frames, making fitting easy. Construction is tubular alloy and overall quality is good. There's a light bracket at the back with various holes drilled through, and bags of clearance. Although the rack is rated to 35kg, we'd recommend a max of about 25kg, because it's not as stiff as some expedition racks.
Well price, versatile rack that should fit most bikes
Review from Bikeradar
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.
Best budget rear rack we've tested - a bargain
