Two years ago Mason Cycles debuted their steel ISO monster bikepacking bike. In Search Of adventure, that bike also debuted a unique carbon fork with a load-bearing Shutter front fender attached to a proprietary fork crown mount. Almost immediately there was a call to add more gear hauling capacity, and Mason let slip that they had a direct-mount mini front rack in the works as well. Now that Condenser rack is here, and you’ll have to get your own ISO to bolt it up.
Mason ISO Condenser rack hauls more, bolted to your HotShoe fork
The Mason ISO is already a capable adventure bike, even without its mini load-carrying Shutter front moto fender. But now the Condenser front rack we were teased, is ready to boost your bikepacking load hauling capacity up to 8kg, making it the perfect spot to strap down your bed roll and more for seriously stable off-road exploration.
The £100 Mason Condenser rack weighs 500g and is TIG-welded from tubular steel in The Netherlands, by company building racks for over 100 years. It features an upturned shape with scooped rails to cradle your gear, 2-mounting points for dynamo-powered lights, plus internal wiring for a clean setup. It also was designed to work with new Voilé Rack Straps to easily & securely strap down your load – from drybags to sleeping bag stuff sacks.
The Condenser is only available in a powder-coated black finish, and only compatible with the 3-bolt HotShoe mount on the fork that comes with the ISO. It comes with all mounting hardware, but straps are sold separately.
