The most versatile hydration and repair carrier system. The original saddle mounted hydration and repair carrier. With over a decade of experience designing these carriers and winning more Ironman World Championships than any other competitors combined, Xlab have launched the first of the next generation of Xlab Hydration Carriers. Already endorsed by Michelie Jones, the 2007 Ford Ironman World Champion, this new wing will be on winning race rockets for the next several years. Rear carriers should not interfere with the air on the riders back, but instead fill in the turbulence hole behind the riders posterior, thereby reducing the riders drag (which accounts for 64% of energy used on a racing bicycle).
Xlab wanted the next generation of carriers to solve the problem of storing keys, cell phones, cash, tire levers, and other essential items. These and other items can be stored in the Xlab Mini Top Bag which drops vertically and easily into the rear luggage compartment and is secured by the top X-Strap. There are two choices for storing your CO2 cartridges and Nanoflator, or Xlab Speed Chuck on the rear of the Carbon Wing, using the optional hexagonal X-NUT or in the Xlab Mini Top Bag. Tires and tubes are always an issue, so now you can attach them neatly under the Carbon Wing inside a saddle bag attached to the mount underneath the carbon wing. With the new Carbon Wing you can use a single bottle cage on the rear or one on each side. These cages have no restrictive protrusion where the bottle enters the cage, instead the bottles are held in place with 4 proprietary X-Grip teeth between the two mounting screws.

I just put one of these on my TT bike, replacing a tacx saddle mount. This setup allows for easier angle adjustment of the entire carrier AS WELL AS the angle of the bottle cages. Now I'm also able to store a spare tubular and some tools for my longer training rides without having to shove them in my pockets-- more aero and more comfortable.
I bought this product to carry additional bottles and spares on my triathlon bike after seeing it used by many pro athletes on the Ironman circuit. It would appear from the outset to be quite expensive but when you see and feel the quality and the intelligence of the design it becomes clear why it's more expensive than most other rear mounted hydration carriers. Fitting it was straight forward and hassle free and once mounted and adjusted to the desired position it was and has remained as steady as a rock, other carriers I have seen and used have been flimsy and flexible in comparison, it holds all you will ever need and more for any long training rides or races and I'm sure will prove to be very durable. A simple but truly excellent product.
