XLab Torpedo Reload Kit Red
The perfect addition to your Torpedo 100 or 400 System, the Xlab Torpedo Reload Kit Red allows you to keep aerodynamic, stops the need to swap bottles and lose valuable time and is simple and easy to use.
Using two lid options, split and solid openings. The Solid Refill Lid is designed to get energy powder, tablets and fluid easily and rapidly into your Torpedo bottle. The second option is the Slotted Refill Lid , like a coin slot, ideal again for used for adding tablets and fluid. An easily accessible refill area is positioned behind the computer meaning the computer screen can be kept clean & clear and you can refuel and get going without losing speed and valuable time.
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.
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.
Great for long distance time trials, triathlons on hot days, 70.3 and Ironman events where one bottle is often not enough and refuelling and staying on top of your hydration is key.
The perfect upgrade for your existing XLab Torpedo mount and cage systems.
