Front Harness UL
Precision laser-cut harness which attaches under your handle bars. Designed so that the contents can be attached/removed quickly and easily while leaving the harness in place. This system is great for multi-sporters or adventure racers who need to be able to add/remove bags frequently at transitions.
The handlebar harness features a 3 strap system to allow easy loading of the dry bag - the centre strap holds the balanced load, while you tension the two outer straps for a secure fit.
The handlebar harness has been specifically designed for use with ROBO-KIWI dry bags (Front Harness + Dry Bag UL), but can also be used for any suitable tube shaped item, such as a tent. It can also easily be paired with the Cafe Bag - the ideal companion for valuables and important items you want to keep close and convenient at stops.
Made in New Zealand
All ROBO-KIWI bikepacking bags are proudly designed and made in New Zealand from a range of quality technical fabrics.
Precision Laser-cut Harness
ROBO-KIWI harnesses have been specifically designed to be used with our dual-ended dry bags, but can also be used with other similarly shaped and sized items such as tents.
High-quality laser cut base plates have been designed with cutouts in all the right places for attaching various accessories, providing additional flex where needed and saving weight where possible without compromising strength. Our harnesses are durable, easy to clean, will not absorb much water when wet and protect the dry bag from accidental tyre rubbing. They provide a secure fit to your handlebars and dry bag for the best riding performance and ease of use.
0-40mm EVA foam spacers on the harness adjust to fit around gear and brake cables for most handlebar configurations
Quality One-wrap Velcro straps provide an adjustable and secure fit to your bike.
Hypalon® tabs and reinforcement patches
Hypalon® tabs and reinforcement patches provide both a secure anti-slip fit and protection for your bike frame.
What to put in it
This harness can be used as a stand-alone product to carry cylindrical shaped items such as tents and dry bags. It is the ideal place to store spare clothing and other items which need to be kept dry. It can also be used to carry overnight food, cooker, etc.
How to pack it
1. Attach the empty harness to your handle bars, positioning the foam spacers and straps carefully around your gear cables and brake lines (to ensure they’re not bent out of shape and function correctly). Clip the lower retainer strap around the bottom of the head tube. Tighten all straps for a secure fit.
2. Pack the contents of your dry bag/tent tightly, squeezing all the air out, then insert into the harness and tighten all the straps. The harness remains in place when you remove the contents, allowing for quick transitions.
