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.
