The Velo Orange Randonneur Rack, Cantilever is a randonneur rack, a specific category of front bicycle racks that is designed for a randonneur handlebar bag to rest on it. The rack is very small in order to save on weight, and the majority of designs feature eyelets to mount a dynamo light onto the rack.
Randonneuring is long-distance cycling that is set apart from other categories by it’s distances of 200K-1200K riding events that are cycled in one continuous stretch–sometimes lasting multiple days but without significant pause. Riders are completely self-supported throughout the event. Thus, accessories designed for randonneuring are minimal and lightweight, and designed for self-sufficiency. That’s why randonneur racks are minimal and lightweight, and feature integrated light mounts as riders might ride through the night for multiple days in a row. Our Ozette Randonneur Bag follows design traditions of easy-access while pedaling because these endurance athletes are continuously on the move.
