XLAB's hydration and repair carriers have often been copied, but like any copy, it is never as good as the original. With over a decade of experience designing these carriers and winning more Ironman Distance World Championships than all XLAB's competitors combined. Now they have launched the first of the next generation of hydration carriers. Already won Ironman World Championships. This new wing will be on winning race rockets for the next several years.
Rear carriers should not interfere with the air on the rider's back, but instead fill in the turbulence 'hole' behind the riders posterior, thereby reducing the rider's 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 Bag which drops vertically and easily into the rear luggage compartment and is secured by the top XSW-Strap.
As you can see below, you have two choices for storing your CO2 cartridges and Nanoflator, or XLAB Speed Chuck on the rear of the super wing, using the optional hexagonal X-Nut or in the XLAB Mini Bag.
Tires and tubes are always an issue, so now you can attach them neatly under the super wing inside the XLAB Mezzo Lower Bag, XLAB Mega Lower Bag, or without the bag.
With the super 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.
One of the key features invented by XLAB is the dual mounting holes for the saddle rail clamps. One position sets the bottle cages close to vertical and the other inclines the cages for rider preference. Because of it's past success, XLAB has kept the same feature in the XLAB super wing for customizing the installation. In addition, there are 4 sets of holes for the lower cage bolts which with the front holes provides a total of 12 different cage angle positions.
Note: The shown accessories are not included in delivery. Only the super wing carrier incl. 2 XSW-Straps and mounting material are included.
