XLAB's Hydration and Repair carriers have often been copied, but like any copy, it is never as good as the original. With over a decade of experience designing these carriers and winning more Ironman Distance World Championships than all our competitors combined, we launched the next generation of XLABâ„¢ Hydration Carriers. Rear carriers should not interfere with the air on the rider's back, but instead fill in the turbulence 'hole' behind the riders posterior, thereby reducing the rider's drag (which accounts for 64% of energy used on a racing bicycle). XLABâ„¢Â Carbon WingÂ is designed for 7mm metal saddle rails. For carbon rail saddles use the included carbon rail hardware kit.
We wanted the next generation of carriers to solve the problem of storing keys, cell phones, cash, tire levers, and other essential items. These and other items can be stored in the XLABâ„¢Â Mini BagÂ which drops vertically and easily into the integrated compartment and is secured by the topÂ X-Strap.
As you can see, you have two choices for storing yourÂ Air StrikeÂ CO2Â cartridges andÂ Nanoflator, or XLABâ„¢Â Speed ChuckÂ on the rear of theÂ Carbon Wing, using the optional hexagonalÂ X-NutÂ or in the XLABâ„¢Â Mini Bag.
Tires and tubes are always an issue, so now you can attach them neatly under theÂ Carbon WingÂ inside the XLABâ„¢Â Mezzo BagÂ or XLABâ„¢Â Mega Bag.
With theÂ CARBON WINGÂ you can use a singleÂ Aqua ShotÂ bottle cage on the rear or one on each side. XLABâ„¢ recommends using either theÂ Gorilla CageÂ or theÂ Gorilla Cage XTÂ for rear carriers.
One of the key features invented by XLABâ„¢ is the dual mounting holes for the saddle rail clamps. One position sets the bottle cages close to vertical and the other inclines the cages for rider preference. Because of its past success, we have kept the same feature in the XLABâ„¢Â Carbon WingÂ for customizing the installation.
