Designed exclusively for Mason’s own HotShoe fork, the Condenser is TIG welded chromoly steel front rack finished with a black powder-coat. The rack is intended for touring and bikepacking with a cradle platform designed for various loads including dry bags, backpacks, or similar self-contained luggage. Mason recommends the new Voilé Rack Straps as the ideal solution for securing a load. According to Mason, the Condenser is made in the Netherlands by a rack specialist with 100 year history and a passion for creating bike carrier systems. The Condenser is ISO Tested for durability and rated for a whopping 8kg load-capacity.
Additionally, the Condenser rack features two mounts for dynamo lights—one low at the front of the rack and the second up high on the forward facing rear loop—and four ports on the main frame tubing to allow internal wiring for the front light and exit to a rear light.
The Condenser rack weighs 500g and is priced at £100, including all necessary mounting hardware. Learn more over at MasonCycles.com. Note that the HotShoe Fork has an axle-to-crown length of 483mm with a 50mm offset. At the moment, it’s available to purchase separately, however, it only works with the InSearchOf bike.
