This system checks many of the boxes that concern triathletes: aerodynamics, security, affordability, and versatility. The Mini Wing 105 sits tucked away from the wind behind the cyclist, providing easy access to bottles while in the aero position. XLAB sources the included water bottle cages from Italy, and they provide over 60 percent more grip force than the previous version. Bottles didn’t come out during testing, even when riding on relatively rough roads. At $60, the Mini Wing 105 is one of the more affordable complete hydration solutions on the market, while remaining highly adjustable and allowing athletes to fine tune the position of their water bottles in a package that fits on virtually any saddle.
