The Draw: Highly Customizable Saddle-Mounted Hydration

If there were a prize for adjustability and customization in a rear bottle carrier system, Speedfil’s R3 Rear Carrier would win hands down. The system can be used with a single- or double- bottle setup, with an option to store inflation cartridges, and is adjustable through a wide range of positions. The included Velcro straps are an easy way to bring a spare tubular tire or tubes, and installation on the saddle rails is a snap—which is often not the case when it comes to rear-mounted hydration options. The system is very robust when installed and didn’t slip or give us any issues during our testing.

$90-$110
