I got one from a friend for Christmas
Overall this is a good drink system for the price point. It helps me stay hydrated and is easy to use. It also helps keep the front of my bike hydrated though as the cap leaks.
Good product, but critically needs spare parts for the wetsuit material black sealer in the cap. I continue buying it because of its practicality, but will convert to Speedfil when I get enough $$'s.
I am happy with this purchase and would recomend this product to anyone who rides in the aero position.
This product is definitely worth it. With seconds sometimes deciding the difference between places in a Sprint distance getting out of aero position to get a drink could cost me some time so being able to remain in position and still be able to hydrate is a plus.
I wouldn't buy this again & am debating on whether to keep it on my bike. I'll probably try to cut my own neoprene piece for the top. I really like the idea, the design just needs some work - kind of ironic considering the company name!
I am not a fan. I don't like the design at all. I will try a different design/ company.
I do recommend this aerodrink but currently profile is coming out with one that deals with the hole issue and has a dual chamber. Might consider waiting, but overall very happy with the product
I think it really will help me, I can't wait to race with it and see how everything works out with it!
Good buy, I don't bike without it.
I like it alot. I don't use it except for racing and some rides before.
Wouldn't race without it.
Good product, but they need to come up with a solution to the yellow sponge thing.
I've read a lot of bad reviews for this product that I attribute to operator error. (Norman Stadler uses this exact model...if it really sucked as bad as these other reviewers say, would a pro Ironman champion with unlimited funds use this? Come on now). Yes, if you fill it all the way to the absolute top of the bottle you will get your drink all over you. So leave some room at the top...my training route has some very rough roads and train tracks, and I have never spilled a drop of fluid. The comment about the straw not being long enough is easily solved by attaching the desired length of vinyl tubing, available at any hardware store. I love this thing & recommend it. I will say the negative comments about the sponge are spot on, though - that thing is ridiculous.
I have seen a few people retro fit the top with a home made cover. If you are handy and have the time, I think it could work well. Not for me.
