Jersey pockets sometimes just aren’t enough. We’re stocking a couple Ortlieb waterproof handlebar bags: the Ultimate 5 classic in black, and the Ultimate 6 Plus in grey. Handlebar bags are an awesome addition to any touring setup, or a great primary bag for day trips, light touring, or any ride where you need a little extra room to stash a few necessities or luxuries. Both bags are waterproof, durable, and attach with a Kickflix quick-release mount to all handlebar sizes. Both come with a detachable shoulder sling for easy carrying when off the bike (they make awesome camera bags).
We mounted the Ultimate 6 to our endurance carbon bike, the Raleigh Revenio Carbon 1.0, although it would also mount to a flatbar bike such as the Jamis Coda series models. Ortlieb’s design has the bikes open so that you can get into the bag without exiting the bike. the Ultimate 6 uses magnets to keep the lid shut, and comes with a divider so you can keep it organized, and has a couple outer mesh pockets for energy bars or a multi-tool. Both bags have an interior zipper pocket with a key clasp, for smaller things.
We have the Ultimate 6 Plus in their standard size, and the Ultimate 5 classic in a size large. Both models are available in ether size and multiple colors for special orders. If you’re curious about getting one, feel welcome to bring your bike in so we can make sure it fits to your cockpit setup. Ask our sales staff for help next time you’re in!
