The bikepacking bag that knows no compromises

The Project

A lot of handlebars bags have critical points for which the need arises to make a series of compromises during outings. It often happens to have difficulties in routine situations such as being able to pick up a energetic bar while running rather than placing your navigator on the front support while using the bag, resulting in compromised grip of the hands on the handlebar.
To solve these problems and make your bicycle trip easier using a handlebar bag, the US company Route Werks has conceived and designed a modern product with a minimal design: The handlebar bag.

Features

Thanks to its small size (L. 145mm x W. 235mm x H. 153mm), the volume of 2-3 liters and the weight of 615gr, this bag is as light as capacious for its intended use. The latter is composed of an upper part in polycarbonate that guarantees strength and acts as a closure, and the lower one where common objects are stored.
“Hanldebar Bag” is made with Cordura 500d fabric and 220d Nylon, thanks to this combination the bag is waterproof and very resistant to external stresses. The fixing on the bike is done through an aluminum attachment and a quick release system that allows you to easily remove it from the handlebar in few seconds.
The main feature, which promises to solve the problems mentioned at the beginning of the presentation, is that of having a hooking system at the top that allows you to attach various types of accessories (cycle computer - smartphone - action camera). In the two side edges you can mount the LED lights and the bell.

Conclusion

The inside of the bag has various compartments and a pocket with a watertight zip closure to arrange everything in an optimal way, without damaging the contents while riding your bike. There are also some additional accessories like external elastic cords, 3M reflective details and as an option a small bag under the saddle. The maximum capacity of the bags in terms of transportable weight is 4 kg.
The "Handlebar Bag" by Route Werks is available on Kickstarter and you can already proceed with the booking for the purchase.
Deliveries will start in January 2021 at the discounted price of €109.00.
