Xlab 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 World Championships than all their competitors combined, they have launched the first of the next generation of Alloy Xlab Hydration Carriers. The new Xlab Super Wing will be on winning race rockets for the next several years.
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). Xlab has positioned the Xlab Super Wing in the Wind Tunnel to 'draft' behind the rider causing no extra drag.
Xlab 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 Xlab Mini Top Bag which drops vertically and easily into the rear ˜luggage compartment' and is secured by the top strap.
As you can see below, you have two choices for storing your CO2 cartridges and Nanoflator, or Speed Chuck on the rear of the Xlab Super Wing, using the optional hexagonal X-Nut or in the Xlab Mini Top Bag.
Tires and tubes are always an issue, so now you can attach them neatly under the Super Wing inside the Xlab Tire Lower Bag, Xlab Kona Lower Bag, or without the bag.
With the new Xlab Super Wing you can use a single bottle cage on the rear or one on each side. These cages have no restrictive protrusion where the bottle enters the cage.
One of the key features invented by Xlab is the multiple mounting holes for the saddle rail clamps. One position sets the bottle cages close to vertical and others incline the cages for rider preference. Because of its past success, Xlab has kept the same feature in the Xlab Super Wing for customizing the installation.
In addition, there are 4 sets of holes for the lower cage bolts which with the front holes provides a total of 12 different cage angle positions.
Xlab uses the latest aerospace aluminum alloy to provide the toughest alloy carrier on the market with no twisting like other hydration carriers. Without hardware the Xlab Super Wing weighs only 85 grams.
The bottom line-the Xlab Super Wing is simply the most versatile Alloy Hydration and Repair system carrier, complete with mounting hardware. Xlab makes you faster - ask the Pros.
