Minimalist rack / mudguards with built in rack?

    I'm planning some events and trips in April & May and not getting enough miles in as I need to. I'm planning to switch to a road bike for commuting and take a detour on the way home 2 or 3 times a week (at the moment I'm using either a Brompton or e-cargo bike).

    I will need to take a small back (not much more than a laptop and a few papers) and want to avoid a back pack. I'm trying to avoid making the bike too big and heavy and so would like to avoid a full rack.

    I came across the below which seem proprietary to a Cube and haven't managed to find them or anything similar that I can buy? Any ideas? An actual rack but smaller than usual would do the job too
