RackTime Barit ‘ Zinger & Quick Review

by Josh Lipton

racktime-barit-handlebar-bag-asphalt-chili-stockFor the next week (thru Nov. 15th), we’ve marked the Racktime Barit down from $65 down to $55.

I’ve been testing out one of these handlebar bags on my tandem for the past 6 months. Overall, it’s been a very nice handlebar bag with high end features at a reasonable price. For connecting to the bike, it utilizes the Ortlieb handlebar mounting system. This excellent mounting system allows for the bag to be locked to the bike though it doesn’t lock shut. The bag has an excellent feel and look to it with a front, 2 side and a top pocket along with its main compartment. It included a rain cover for when the skies open up, but is sufficient as is for light rains. The Barit works with the Racktime Map Case and also can be used with the Ortlieb accessories listed below it on the Racktime Handlebar category page.

The Barit is available in Asphalt/Chili or Asphalt/Black. We have about 10 of the Asphalt/Chili is stock at the moment (which inspired this Zinger) but if you order the Asphalt/Black, while you can get it this price, it will be back ordered.
