XLab Torpedo Hydration System Magenta

The fastest way to drink from the leaders in triathlon and Ironman hydration equipment. The Torpedo System range is the Swiss army knife of hydration aids. Combining a Torpedo cage, mount, bottle and mini computer mount to make an aerodynamic, lightweight, high performance front mounted system. Part of the aerobar range of products, the Torpedo System took four years to develop and since then has taken athletes to Ironman World titles and 70.3 victories. The number one selling system of this type in the World, never has hydrating on the bike been so fast.

XLab as a brand was created over twenty years ago by Craig Turner in San Diego, USA and over that period has developed XLab equipment using state of the art computer aided design and wind tunnel testing to take XLab products to 24 World Triathlon Championships.

Here in it's bigger 400 version, the Torpedo System is an incredibly aerodynamic front mounted hydration device. Horizontally mounted it is discrete in wind tunnel tests as it has a 70% less frontal area than the majority of vertically mounted bottles. The tests also concluded that the system actually produced zero drag, an amazing feat for a product boasting so many features.

This aerodynamically efficient profile is a lot down to the Airflow Straightener and Kamm Tail design. Producing 50% less drag by channelling airflow over the system.

Zero drag is further achieved with the crucial position the system sits in. Tucked neatly between the arms and being adjustable means the system can sit flush with the arms, creating zero drag in crosswinds.

The straw has even had the aerodynamic treatment, folding down, when not in use, for a clean and streamlined profile over the top of the bottle.

So aerodynamics are covered but a heavy unit would be counter productive. Luckily XLab have developed an Ultralight system. In it’s 400 guise the whole system weighs a mere 170 grams. Weight will definitely not impede your performance.

The system is quick and easy to mount without having to resort to using tools. The system mounts seamlessly to a range of different sized aerobars, with 1.5” adjustability. This makes it ideal for swapping between bikes and means if you change your bars the system can be used with the new ones.

Non-slip straps keep the system in place, even over the roughest of terrain.

Ease of use is incredibly important with every XLab product, no more so than the Torpedo System. Ergonomically perfect with three adjustable positions and two straw positions so your favourite energy drink can be within easy reach.

The need for speed is always evident in this product. A bite valve at the end of the straw makes for fast drinking and the Torpedo cage is designed with sloping sides that flex outwards for lightening fast removal of the bottle.

Often mounting items on the handlebars can effect handling, not with the Torpedo System, mounted further back away from the aerobar extensions for improved control and stability.

So you are in control, smoothly cutting through the air, you will now want to know just how fast you are going! No problem with the Mini computer mount that is discretely integrated into the system. Easy to view as it sits in front of the bottle but does not interfere with aerodynamics.

A fast, easy to install and light system ready for your Ironman, triathlon or even long distance time trial.

The TORPEDO SYSTEM is available in 2 different series. The 400 model comes with: Nylon composite "VEE" bottle cage, Aluminium TORPEDO MINI MOUNT, Round black spacers and a clear colour bite valve.
