Hydrotail Blaze

The importance of hydration, and how to functionally do it.

You’ve seen them at races. Mounted behind the seat of the rider, is a fancy hydration system that holds two cages for bottles, and maybe something extra like tubes and cartridges. It’s pretty cool looking, but how do you decide which one to get, and what will work best for you? This topic is a little more heated, as some camps hold the theory that rear hydration systems would slow you down because you’ll have to reach behind, while others simply despise the alternative – myself included when it comes to drink systems that rattle and attach to your aerobars.

I’d like to introduce something pretty awesome that is starting to hit the markets now. The Hydrotail Blaze.

Designed by the innovators at Beaker Concepts, the Blaze has got the edge on the original Hydrotail because it is completely adjustable when it comes to bottle angles and reach. This design solves the problem as presented by an uncomfortable reach behind your seat searching for your bottle. What I additionally like about the Blaze is that there’s an enclosure that allows for C02 and inflator storage, all integrated.

Features:

  • Integrated double CO2 cylinder holder
  • Infinite positions for bottles
  • Adapts to your natural reach
  • Easy set up
  • Double Velcro straps included (Does not include cages)

The Cervelo specific adapter for this product is available soon at OneTri.com. Nonetheless the product fits all standard seat rails. Cages, tubes, CO2, and other accessories are not included.

Zoot Ultra Speed 2011 Update

I love my 2010 Zoot Ultra Speed shoes because they are so light and comfortable. They are the easiest shoe’s I’ve ever owned to put on, which is especially helpful in a tri and when I’m in a rush to get out on a run. The 2010 are black and yellow. The new 2011 Zoot Ultra Speeds that just came out are a classic blue and yellow with a silver shiny accent. The color palette is much louder than the previous year.
