XLab Turbo Wing Black
The Xlab Turbo Wing Black is one of those products that sounds fast and performance orientated, yet is available at an affordable price. The guys from XLab have created just that, a durable, easy to use and lightweight multi-purpose, multi-positional carrier. The fastest way to carry your CO2, drinking bottle and bag. The XLab Turbo Wing has been thoroughly tested and developed in windtunnel tests to produce a carrier that creates literally zero drag, in the high position, a saves up to 13 seconds over a 40 kilometre timetrial or event. Never has carrying your essentials been so speedy and effortless. Ideal for triathlons, timetrials, Ironman races or just out for a long training ride, where you want everything discretely tucked away but still within easy reach.
Adjustability is always at the forefront of all XLab products and no more so than the XLab Turbo Wing. Five bottle cage angles can be achieved with three carrier mounting positions, allowing the rider to always have their bottle easy to hand.
Another common trait with XLab products is usability and reliability. A low profile allows for easy step over, especially important in transitions, where speed and fluidity are key.
Anti flex construction means when the bottle is placed in the cage the carrier stays strong and prevents the bottle rebounding back out of the cage. This is helped if you chose to add the optional XLab Gorilla cage, which also works to keep the bottle securely in the cage.
The carrier is held together using vibration proof parts such as loctite screws, lock washers and nylock nuts, allowing for a secure and sturdy piece of kit even when riding over poor road surfaces.
Optional add-ons are this carrier’s party piece, holding two large water bottles with ease as well as a multitude of other items to keep you riding, stronger for longer.
Attach the XLab Sonic Nut and you have a handy CO2 Cartridge and XLab Speed Chuck. Throw on the XLab Gorilla Cages and slide your XLab Aqua-Shot racing bottles in. Follow that up by neatly tuck your XLab Mini Bag with all your essential tools onto the carrier or strap the XLab Mezzo Bag on for carrying slightly larger items. Finally finish off by using the supplied XLab X-Straps to securely attach an optional inner tube or tubular tyre.
As you can see the options for this carrier are endless and made with high grade USA aircraft aluminium you can be safe in the knowledge that this carrier will perform for many hundreds of trouble free miles.
