The Smuggler Handlebar Bag
Sticking to our Vermont roots we’ve designed a smaller handlebar bag that won’t get in the way on those fast and hard group rides yet can handle the loads required for those all-day adventures. Named after Smuggler’s Notch, a picturesque Vermont climb through maple trees that was used by smugglers during the Napoleonic Wars and Prohibition.
There’s no denying that gravel cycling has exploded, and made hip packs and handlebar bags (once reserved for those quirky old cycle-tourists) cool again. Back in the day, we did all of our riding on the dirt roads of Vermont, and rode in weather conditions that probably lead to moving to California… How nice it would have been to have room for that extra layer, and apple cider donuts back then.
