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.

Is Strava now calculating average speed differently?

Has Strava recently changed the way it calculates average speeds? I ask because up until a few months ago, my average speeds were always within 0.2 mph of my average speeds on my Cateye bike computers. (I have two road bikes, each with a Cateye.) Sometimes Strava showed a faster speed, sometimes slo ... Read More »

I’m 68 years old and an avid Strava user/member. My current bike is a 27-year old steel behemoth with 15 speeds and very fat tires. It weighs ... Read More »

"Single speed" at nationals?

I know some races allow makeshift ss rigs using zipties or whatever. What would it take to ride ss at nationals? If I ziptie the fd shifter and use a single (conversion) cog in back, would that qualify despite the derailleurs?Read More »

Need help identifying my new Bianchi fixie/single speed

I picked this bike up for pretty cheap at a swap meet yesterday. My friend said it might be a Pista, but I don't think that's right. All the Pista's I've seen are front brake only. The one I got has a rear brake only. The rear cable is taped to the top tube (if that helps). Any info will help. ... Read More »
