A dedicated option for smaller capacity, direct-mount bags is the all-new Kestrel Handlebar Bag.
Taking design cues from the super-popular Ardea Pack, the Kestrel is purpose-built for handlebar functionality, and integration with our accessory bags, the Sidekick and the Rando Pocket, creating the perfect cockpit setup for adventurous day trips on pavement, gravel, or dirt!
Focusing on the core of the Ardea design by freeing up the back and sides of the bag allowed for the addition of attachment points for the Sidekick Stem Pouch and/or Rando Pocket, creating a one-piece adventure pod that can most effectively utilize the available space on both sides of the bars and both sides of the stem!
With everything you need easily accessible at your fingertips and anchored together for stability, we can’t think of a more practical cockpit setup for a full day in the saddle. Or rock the Kestrel minimalist-style without the barnacles when you just need capacity for an extra layer, your fix-it kit, and a banana.
The bottom of the pack includes a Coverlight daisy chain that’s perfect for lashing your pump, fishing rod, or other small items. And there’s even lash points on the corners of the rear panel for even more versatility in add-on’s! The new Kestrel Handlebar Bag will be right at home on your gravel rig, your grocery-getter, your road bike, and even your trail bike.
