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.

Specialized Globe Comp 8 Speed Nexus Guessing from 2006

Does anyone know much about these? I am looking to get into road riding. This is more a hybrid but seems more road than anything. How well does the Nexus system hold up? Would this be OK for local group rides? Would a $300 bike from direct bikes be much better? I am on a very slim budget. I also hav ... Read More »

10 Speed 105 shifters with 11 speed ultegra hub?

I recently replaced my RH-500 wheels with some ultegra 6800s -- very nice. I put my 10 speed cassette on the 11 speed ultegra hub with the spacer provided for use with a 10 speed cassette. Question is, when I eventually replace the cassette (almost there), if I put on an 11 speed cassette, will my ... Read More »
