Camelbak Raceback Pro Review – By KWC
- Camelbak Hydration for the time trial
- 72 oz reservoir (~3 water bottles)
- MSRP $100.00
The days are starting to get longer and winter is almost over. That means it’s getting time to put away the cyclocross bikes and start practicing our tuck positions for our time trial bikes. It’s also time to start looking over our gear for the season and see what we can change to get that little bit of improvement.
One place you can start is your hydration. You can get aerodynamic water bottles or change your bottle mounts, but have you thought about wearing your water? I hadn’t, but when I saw Camelbak’s Racebak product at Sea Otter, it looked like something I should try out. The idea is simple: it’s a vest with a water bladder you wear under your jersey. Yes, I was inspired by the Dave Zabriskie endorsement, which is enough to get me to reconsider my chamois cream, but the Racebak really seemed like a product that could even change the way I ride a time trial bike.
