Amazing, innovative product......... Aug 13, 2010
I have gone through many types of water bottle cages for road and MTB bikes. They were either too loose (water bottles popping out over bumps or on MTB trails) or too tight (pain getting out and in the bottles). Also, I have experienced some carbon cages breaking or cracking after some use. After reading the glowing reviews on bikerumor, I decided to try this product. So far, I find this product to be perfect; the bottles are very secure (even for rough MTB terrains) and much easier to handle. For instance, in the Shenandoah 100, I found water bottles lying left and right on the trails, probably popping out of people's cages; my Vincero bottle never 'popped' out, even on some of the steep, rocky descents. Also, this product alleviates a constant, nagging problem of trying to fit a water bottle on the seat tube of a mountain bike using a regular cage, due to limited space, but with this product one can easily put a large water bottle on the seat tube without much manipulation to get it in or out.
I am so happy with this product that I plan on purchasing for my other bikes. I hope they will come out with insulated bottles soon, and maybe different color bottles. Some may think this product is pricey, but remember you can easily pay $50 (even up to $100 these days) for sub 30 gram carbon cage w/o bottle. With this product, you get the whole system (bottle holder and bottle), and weighs less than the lightest bottle carbon cages out there.Lastly, the bottle plastic does not contain any of those toxic or carcinogenic materials, and they are made in the USA. This product is highly, highly recommended for all types of bikes.
Great bottle innovation Jul 16, 2010
This bottle system is incredibly innovative. Instead of a bulky cage, a simple magnet holds the bottle in place, and securely! I ride every day over a wicked set of train tracks and this bottle stays put. The weight savings is impressive and you can pop the bottle back into place on the magnet without even looking. It also has a great one-way medical valve for drip-free, spill-free use. This is the future of water bottle technology and I'm really happy I have one!!
