It seems like it’s new product week at the Porcelain Rocket HQ in Calgary, Alberta. Following the announcement of their Mr. Fusion Mini, the company just unveiled the all new Horton handlebar harness system.

Building on their minimalist MCA handlebar system, Horton features a waterproof, fully welded-seam construction and a roll/fold/bungee closure accessory pocket for fast one-handed access. Porcelain Rocket’s founder Scott Felter states, “Both [Skyler] and I used pre-production versions of these [on our recent trip through the Atacama Desert] in Argentina, and we both came away very pleased with the quick, easy access.”

The closure also doubles as a clothing layer stash, according to Scott. The main harness system holds a dry bag or combination of items from from 5-15 liters and is compatible with flat, drop, and riser bars. It will come in the black color shown here and will be available as of December 12th for $160CAD, roughly $125. Horton is 100% made in Calgary and weighs in at 330 grams, complete.

The Horton Handlebar system was loosely named after ‘Horton Hears a Who’… although the reason why is rather cryptic. We’ll have to get one to test and find out… stay tuned. In the meantime, watch the store over at PorcelainRocket.com.

    Looks nice…. but looks doesn’t account for functionality on the riders side of the handlebar. Please show photos on how the handle bar luggage system You are testing are tackling cables and brake hoses :)
    From the pictures shown here above it’s seem like the cables and hoses has an awkward inward kink/bend – something I won’t risk doing.

  • This is just a news release. We haven’t tested it yet, as stated in the closing paragraph. When we do, we’ll make sure to publish a detailed review…
