Revelate Designs Harness


Product Overview

The Harness is a rigid mount designed to carry drybags, stuff sacks or other cylindrical shaped objects (packrafts...) on your handle bars.

Think of the Harness as a "soft" rack for your handlebars with built in straps. It excels with light and bulky loads. Works well with drop bars on a bike setup for bikepacking bags.

Completely re-designed, the Harness has a host of new features:

Harness Features

  • Molded rubber spacer blocks provide offset from handlebars reducing lever & cable interference.

  • Fiberglass cross-bar provides lateral stiffness across the 3 straps.

  • 3 layer, compression molded EVA composite material.

  • Grippy inner surface keeps your load in place.

  • Glove friendly, easy access buckles with locking cam straps.

  • Optional attachment straps for front pocket attachment.

  • Cam locking crown / head tube center strap with EVA spacer block


Drop bar users - The Harness works fine with drop bars; you are limited in the width of the main bag you mount in it, but can opt for a larger diameter drybag.

The Harness is ideal for widely varying loads and when you need quick access to your stuff sack or drybag. They can carry tents, minus 40 sleeping systems, packrafts, ultralight cuben drybags and mini kegs. Use your imagination. 

Disk or V Brake only  - The Harness is NOT compatible with cantilever or road style front brakes with a vertical exposed cable.

15 lb weight limit.
