Bontrager Speed Water Bottles/Cages

4/5 (1 Reviews)
MSRP : $13.00


Product Description

For the rider looking for every speed advantage possible, Bontrager's Speed Bottle with Carbon Cage is simply the fastest bottle and cage combination on the planet. Developed using Computer Fluid Dynamics to slice through the wind, in certain cross wind situations using this bottle and cage combination is actually faster than using no bottle at all.

Strengths:    Simple to set up and use, just like any "non" aero bottle, doesn't leak like some bottles out there (I'm looking at you profile design)

Weaknesses:    Large size can cause problems when trying to mount more than one, cost (do I really need the cage to be carbon?)

Bottom Line:   
Developed for Chris Lieto & the Ironman triathlon, the speed bottle generally works very well. They attach to your frame like any normal bottle, and carry as much liquid in a much more aero package. However, it's highly focused development has caused some problems - smaller (I ride a medium sized trek TTX and still have this problem) frames will only be able to carry one (if two are mounted, they'll hit one another), as will any of the many tri specific frames which only have one cage mount. Overall, great if you only need one bottle, use it in tandem with an aero-bar mounted bottle, or have a large frame that has enough room to accommodate both.

27 speed sora shifter/brake lever for MTB disc brakes?

Looking to try my hand at this conversion. Want to put some drop bars (salsa woodchipper 2) on my trusty Gary Fisher Montare (that I've had for 10 years and the rubber grips need replaced, so I figured... Project time!). As now it's basically a mtb with cx tires. Searching comes up with soooo many ... Read More »

Need help with crankset compatibility and for 10 speed...

I have a Cervelo S2 with a standard english threaded bottom bracket and an old set of FSA cranks with a bent spider arm. The rest of my drivetrain is Campy Chorus 10 speed. Can I use a new 11 speed crank or does it have to be 10 speed? And the Campy cranks are gorgeous, but really expensive ... Read More »

Chris King R45 11-speed upgrade - new axle required?

I posted this in the wrenching forum too, but thought it might get more reads here. I built a wheel using a 2012 Chris King R45 Shimano/Sram 10-speed rear hub, and now I'm thinking of going to 11-speed. There is a $250 upgrade kit available that comes with a new axle, bearings, and freehub shell. ... Read More »
