Our simplest, lightest handlebar harness protects the contents of your dry bag from abrasion as well as protecting your bike for little weight gain
Joey lightweight handlebar harness
The younger brother to Kanga is now here; his simple construction and clean lines make him unassuming, but his capabilities surpass his appearance.
Joey is a very simple handlebar harness. It protects the contents of your dry bag from abrasion as well as protecting your bike (you can at least try to keep it shiny, right?). Constructed from tenacious 4 oz Nylon with a layer of 3 mm closed cell foam Joey has a semi-rigid structure which perfectly couples versatility with stability.
Although, not quite as stable on his feet as Kanga - our full spec harness, Joey can be secured tightly to your handlebars to supremely reduce your luggage wobbling about. This is paramount when riding; allowing you to maintain balance on the tricky sections and to reduce fatigue.

Designed to work in partnership with our popular Dual Airlok Xtras which come with a set of Dual Straps; if you are buying a regular Airlok Xtra or have your own luggage, for full versatility we recommend adding a set of Dual Straps to your order. The 4 rung webbing ladder allows a customised fit to your bike with the distance between loops matched to our Airlok Xtra range. The 2 modest loops at the bottom give you all the options you could need to really secure Joey to your bike. The accompanying velcro straps can be used through these loops to secure to your forks or headset - we supply Joey with 1 metre of double-sided velcro that can be cut to size with a pair of scissors with no fraying. Joey can also be used as a seat pad to insulate you from the ground, with no buckles or bumpy bits to make it uncomfortable, and very quick to attach/detach from your bike. ?FITTING INSTRUCTIONS - Cut two lengths of velcro long enough to pass around the handlebars and through the webbing loop - Attach to your handlebar with the two attachment loops facing down - Cut two lengths of velcro long enough to pass through the attachment loops and under the crown of your fork. Leave about 2 inches of overlap to ensure the velcro grips well - Attach? - Joey is now secured to your bike and ready to embrace your dry bag.

I bought a Joey to stop my Airlok Dual from bouncing as much whilst riding.
It's basic but certainly helps to support the load on my bars, helping to anchor the bag to the fork crown in addition to the bars.
Whilst I've not had a problem with it, but it also should help protect against any kind of rub from the cockpit cables.
It can be a bit fiddly to get the straps around and tight, but after a few tries I got the hang of it, and the Joey immediately feels more stable than just the bag strapped around the bars.
While I'm very tempted by a Kanga harness now, for a third of the price the Joey is definitely a much more wallet friendly option for someone that only bikepacks a few times a year.
Used for a 7 day trip across wales, and I am impressed. For such a light weight simple design and cheap price it held my drysack completely stable the entire trip (mostly gravel trails and tarmac), even though the drysack was full of rigid non compressible items such as maps and electronics, not what is usually recommended. After a week of using the Joey I don't see why I'd need a significantly more expensive and heavier harness. Maybe a more expensive one works better for more technical mountain bike trails/strapping multiple dry sacks, but the simple Joey is fine for my needs.
I mounted mine so the harness sits below the handlebar (the photos show it sitting above) so my lights were still usable, with the velcro around the forks as shown. I used a couple of cable ties to hold it in place when the dry sack was removed which made putting the drysack back on much easier, similar to a handlebar bag
