We have developed an integrated system offering cyclists, regardless of discipline, the ability to quickly, easily, and efficiently mate our water bottles to their bicycles. The system’s patent pending design is comprised of a combination of complementary geometries as well as a magnetic pair of rare earth metals. These two features provide a cyclist with an unparalleled user experience with many advantages over other bottle & cage implementations.
When we studied the interaction of how a cyclist rehydrates using other bottles & cages, there were a few notable areas for improvement:
- Reduce the number of steps/motions a cyclist normally performs to get a drink
- Improve the efficiency of the remaining steps/motions
- We also scrutinized the design and looked for efficiencies with:
- Improved hold
- Weight optimization
What came out of research and subsequent field trials was a system which makes the bottle float on the bike. The interaction between the geometry of the mount and bottle create a seamless fit limiting the bottle on five of the six axes of movement. The remaining axis is tempered by adding a rare earth magnetic pair which negates the effects of vibration and shock loading experienced when riding a bike.
Lastly, we simply wanted a system which offered superior performance while not detracting from the beauty of the bike. We accomplished this by having the mount hidden under the bottle when a bottle is present, and by having a minimal footprint when there are no bottles.
What you get is a system which offers superior performance and restores the beauty of the bicycle.
How It Works
The system is simply elegant in its operation. With one simple motion, the bottle slides on and off the mount. The complementary geometry ensures movement is restricted to one axis. The pair of rare earth magnets (one each in the bottle and mount) interact when they get close to one another and literally snap the bottle out of your hand to hold it securely even when conditions on the road or trail are less than optimal.
