XLab Stealth Pocket 500
There is nothing worse than having to strap gels, bars and energy food to your handlebars or bike’s toptube. Having to shove energy bars and loose change in your rear pockets is neither comfortable nor easy to access. This is where nutrition-carrying specialists Xlab come in. Creating the Stealth Pocket range, a set of frame mounted storage devices keeping your nutrition and valuables easy to hand, secure and even improving your bikes aerodynamic profile.
Available in four specially designed sizes, 100, 200, 300 and new for 2014 the 400 and 500. All bags ideal whether you are competing in a sprint distance triathlon, 70.3, Ironman event or even a long distance time trial, sportive or just a training ride. Ready for all situations where you want the lightest, most secure and aerodynamic method of carrying your valuable nutrition products.
The Stealth Pocket 500 version has been designed specifically for bikes with internal cable routing and frames featuring two toptube screw inserts. The unique design allows the bag to be attached securely and easily onto the top tube.
A streamlined aerodynamic design with the bag five times longer than it is high producing the ultimate airfoil shape. This was developed with help from some of the Worlds leading athletes both competing, training and even in wind tunnel testing.
The bag slots seamlessly behind the stem and headset area with a 72 degree front angle that mirrors the majority of frame head tube angles, providing a fairing like addition to your frame for a smooth aerodynamic profile, reducing the usual drag pocket associated with this area.
Narrow, carefully designed dimensions of this storage device means it sits perfectly inline with the frame, eliminating frontal drag.
A specially chosen fabric on the exterior of the Pocket also contributes to it’s aerodynamic efficient profile. Smooth low skin friction material is quick and minimises drag as you slice through the air.
So we now know this is quite possibly the fastest way of carrying your energy food.
Fast but also secure and sturdy, with special friction material used at the front and bottom of the bag preventing the bag swaying in the wind, when riding out of the saddle or over rough roads. The last thing you need when pounding the pedals is becoming distracted with an unsecure bag.
Designed to sit forward on the top tube the bag is easy to reach on the go, even from on the aerobars. The bags top opening prevents items falling out and with a silver inner lining, your energy bars, money and keys can be easily found at a glance. The silver lining also works to reflect heat away from the bag, keeping your energy food at the ideal temperature.
A stretch mesh red pocket provides an easy to spot compartment for small items you want to keep separate from the other contents in the bag.
Insulated side panels keep the whole bag at a cool temperature, ideal for long, hot rides. The inside compartment is reinforced with an aero stiffener, allowing the bag to maintain it’s aerodynamic shape.
Stealth Pocket Aero Bags are very easy to use and are robust with the 500 featuring two bright, red zipper pulleys easy to use for one-handed quick entry via a super slide zip into the bag.
The Stealth Series is ideal for lower stem heights, with a 1.5” high profile and 2.1” width making it an unobtrusive addition to your timetrial bike.
XLab use their high quality stitching and vibrant graphics on the outer casing to give a sharp and stylish feel to what is a very desirable aero frame storage device.
