Apidura - Backcountry Handlebar Pack - NEW PRODUCT
NEW Product, redesigned specifically for MTB bikes
The return of the packs that started it all.
Backcountry is coming back. We have phased out the original Backcountry series over the summer and have been working hard to bring you its replacement. The new Backcountry series has taken many of our designs that have been with us since the beginning and redesigned them for modern mountain bikes.
A balanced all-in-one handlebar bag for challenging trails
The Backcountry Handlebar Pack is designed to carry bulky, compressible items on long distance rides and multi-day adventures. Eliminating the need for a front rack, it helps to create a balanced load that makes steep climbs or technical sections effortless.
The handlebar bag hits the sweet spot between low weight, durability and all-weather capability, and the roll-top closure system protects gear while allowing adjustment of the bag’s capacity as required. A simple but strong attachment system secures the bag to handlebars, and anti-slip Hypalon safeguards against wear.
Versatile and hard-wearing, for technical riding on demanding, rugged terrain
- Roll down closure for flexible capacity
- Ultra-durable, lightweight body fabric
- Abrasion-resistant panels for added protection
- Bungee tie down for extra storage
- Reflective graphics for enhanced visibility
- Hands-free air release valve for easy packing
Available in two sizes: 11L for long-haul touring and 7L for shorter weekend trips or races. Both bags can be used alone or paired with an Accessory Pocket to provide a handy space for food and electronics.
The Backcountry Handlebar Pack is made from Dimension-Polyant VX21, a four-layer laminated fabric originally developed for the maritime industry and our proprietary 420D nylon; a rugged fabric made to our own exacting specifications for durability and waterproofing. Designed to fit the demands of off-road riding, these materials offer full waterproofing, light weight, low stretch, and high abrasion and tear resistance. Notably, it’s welded together at the seams, creating a watertight seal that ensures the handlebar bag remains completely waterproof.
The handlebar attachments are reinforced with Hypalon, a durable rubberised nylon that provides extra protection against friction and puncture. For the fastening system, Woojin buckles have been chosen for strength and reliability, while 840D fabric abrasion-resistant panels provide extra protection in high wear areas.
Wash by hand, using a mild diluted soap if necessary. Afterwards, let it air dry.
Do not machine wash, machine dry, or iron.
