The new Musguard Handlebar Harness is designed to be light, simple and efficient, and it weighs in at just 148 grams, making it one of the lightest handlebar bags we’ve ever seen. Find more details and photos here…
Owned and operated by Jurij Lozić, Musguard is a Slovenian brand that got its start following a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2013. Yesterday, they announced their latest product, the Musguard Handlebar Harness, which clearly takes some design cues from their original OMNI fender. The Musguard Handlebar Harness is meant to hold a dry bag on your bars and uses a unique one-strap design that wraps around the stem and handlebar to ensure the load stays firmly in place.
The harness itself is made from recycled 0.8 mm polypropylene. An aluminum/acetal G-hook with cam keeps the dry bag secured in place, and two silicone-backed straps (with included EVA spacers) attach it to the handlebars. There are slots in the harness for an additional head tube strap, but according to Musguard, they found it wasn’t needed for a tight setup, so the head tube strap and spacers aren’t included at this time. The harness weighs in at just 148 grams, which is among the lightest we’ve seen—only around 10 grams heavier than the Revelate Designs Pronghorn harness. Musguard doesn’t currently provide a dry bag, and the weight limit is unknown, but at just €49 (~$52 USD), it’s competitively priced.
