Whether you need to read a map while you’re riding, or need to quickly whip out a camera, we have a wide range of touring handlebar bags to suit.
What handlebar bags are best for a bike tour?
Handlebar bags are a popular choice for bike tours because they allow you to keep your gear easily accessible while riding. Here are some options to consider:
- Roll-top handlebar bags: These bags have a roll-top closure, similar to a dry bag, and are designed to be water-resistant. They’re great for keeping your gear dry in wet weather.
- Basket-style handlebar bags: These bags have an open top and a wire or mesh basket-style construction. They’re great for carrying items that you need to access quickly, such as snacks or a camera.
- Front-mounted handlebar bags: These bags attach to the handlebars and stem and are designed to be compact and streamlined. They’re a good choice if you want to minimize wind resistance while riding.
- Harness-style handlebar bags: These bags attach to the handlebars using a harness system that wraps around the bag. They offer a lot of versatility in terms of the size and shape of the bag you can use.
When choosing a handlebar bag for your bike tour, consider the size and shape of the bag, the mounting system, and the level of weather resistance you need. Make sure to choose a high-quality bag that’s compatible with your bike and your touring needs.
