The Tubus Airy is the world's first titanium carrier. The Airy is lightweight, durable, and ideal for minimalist touring. The Airy is rated to carry 30 kg or approximately 65 lbs, yet it only weighs a mere 0.43 lbs., which includes the titanium struts that mount the Airy to your bicycle's frame. The Airy is compatible with both 700c and 26" wheels.
The V-shaped frame of the Airy is sleek and low profile, and it is designed with two mounting options. The Airy can be mounted using two titanium struts that attach to eyelets on your bicycle's seat-stays, or it can be mounted using one titanium strut that attaches centrally to your bicycle's brake bridge.
Note: The Tubus Airy is a specific rack design intended to fit on bicycles that have traditional seat-stay bridges including a centered, tapped fender mounting hole. If your bicycle does not have this type of design, read below for options.
The body and struts of the Airy are made of titanium. Titanium is rust and corrosion resistant. Any scratches or blemishes that your Airy incurs during travel can be easily buffed out with an emery cloth. This makes the Airy extremely strong and nearly indestructible.
Take a moment to review our wide selection of panniers to mount on your Airy from Ortlieb, Jandd, Vaude, and other panniers.
If your bicycle doesn't have upper eyelets, use the Tubus Seat Stay Mount. These are available in five sizes to fit any bike. For bikes without lower mounting eyelets, the Tubus Quick Release Adapter is available.
