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.

Hybrid Pedals for single speed road bike.

I just picked up a used single speed. I'd like to use this bike primarily as a commuter bike but I would like to have the versatility to tackle longer rides on the weekends. Are there any good hybrid road pedals out there? Preferably not SPD, more of a Look style? Am I hoping for too much?Read More »

Sram Red 11 speed yaw front derailleur

Just wondering what the difference is between the 10 and 11 speed yaw front derailleur? I'm sure the cage is narrower on the 11 speed. I wanted to order the 10 speed but the supplier I deal with only has the 11 speed in stock. 10 speed won't be in stock until later in the month. Would the 11 spee ... Read More »
