Here is what Tubus has to say about this rack:
The GRAND TOUR has the potential to become the new tubus classic. Thanks to its narrow but functional loading surface, it combines stability and extreme rigidity in a subtle design. The luggage carrier feet are reduced with a minimalistic tubular design. Likewise, the GRAND TOUR packs the 26 kg load easily, making it almost essential on modern touring bikes. It will also serve you loyally for many years thanks to its second loading level and the possibility of using tension belts across or along the carrier.
