Tubus racks are strong, beautiful and lightweight. It's no surprise these German-made carriers have become the basic equipment of any top quality touring or commuting bicycle.

Their Tara model is a virtually indestructible Front Rack made from thin walled 25CrMo4 steel tubes. By lowering placement of weight on the front-end of your bike, Lowrider-style racks ensure more predictable steering and dramatically improved handling compared to other front carriers.

The Tara Lowrider also features adjustable side arms and three different mounting holes so it can be easily mounted on nearly every fork*. It even has a separate set of lower eyelets for more convenient fender attachment. Pair with the Cargo Rear Rack for the ultimate bombproof touring set-up.

The load capacity for the Tara rack is 33 lbs (15kg). Weight: 530g with included hardware. Black.

All Tubus racks are backed up by a 30-year Worldwide Guarantee against technical failure. The Cargo and other CrMo models are also supported by an additional 3-year Mobile Guarantee against technical failure. This means, within the first 3 years after purchase date, a broken carrier will be replaced and a new one will be forwarded to any place on earth - wherever you are - for free. Please see the Tubus website for warranty details.

*The Tara can only be mounted to forks with both mid-blade eyelets and fork-tip eyelets. Tubus also produces a mounting set for forks which are not equipped with mid-blade eyelets. If you are unclear about compatibility with your fork please contact us.

Tubas Tara Lowrider Front Rack Review
by Call me what you want.
Washington State

My experience has been exceptional. The product arrived when it was supposed to, in perfect condition, and at a price significantly lower than Amazon Prime. I had a question of fit to a 2017 Specialized Carbon Diverge and your customer service provided with an accurate e-mail response to my Will it fit? question. Easy to install and remove. Stable when front gravel panniers are filled.

Solid and easy to install

Installed this rack on my wife's new Trek 520 Disc, and it went on easy around the disc brake with no spacers or customization needed. That was not the case for the rack I put on my own 520 Disc a couple years ago. Frankly, it's hard to understand why these racks are so expensive, but even so I am considering getting another for my own bike now.

The best lowrider front rack ...hands down

I am getting ready for bicycle touring this summer. The tubus tara lowrider front rack is perfect ... light but strong and a great value. I had used another front rack on a trip last year but this was too heavy and did not get my panniers low enough. I should have gone with the best on the first purchase

Huge weight savings...

I replaced my Surly front rack with the Tara Lowrider, and so far am happy with the decision - the rack is less than half the weight than my Surly. The rack is solid, and I can easily fit my Ortlieb front roller panniers on it. I will clearly need to play around with the positioning of the bottom clips on the panniers (the angles to get them engaged with the rack are more limited than on the Surly racks).

I did have an issue with getting the rack plus fenders installed. In my case I ended up needing to get a new quick release lever that would fit with the hardware and still function - for someone forgoing quick release levers for the locking variety, this is not an issue).

Only other minor complaint was aesthetic... on my Disk Trucker, the horizontal bars are not quite parallel to the ground. I played around with all possible installation points and it's just not possible (gave up after reading that this is a common complaint with the rack).
