In this article I will review the Elite Rocko Carbon water bottle cages for my Scott Scale 925 mountain bike. While on my road bike I run a pair of lightweight Tune Wasserträger 2.0 Carbon Bottle Cages, I wanted to have a bottle cage with high retention, so I’ve searched for some of the bottle cages used by mountain bike professionals as well as the water bottle cages used in Paris-Roubaix. The result of my quest is a set of Elite Rocko Carbon bottle cages.
Tune Wasserträger 2.0 is a lightweight carbon water bottle cage of only 9 grams, that perfectly suits the stealth look of my Canyon Ultimate CF SLX road-bike. The Tune Wasserträger 2.0 comes with aluminum bolts and has a black tune logo on it. For a reasonable price-point you get a Tune branded water bottle with the bottle cage as well.
In this article I will briefly review the Amacx Water Bottle Crate that comes with 12 Amacx branded Tacx Shiva Water bottles of 750 ml each. I’ve purchased a water bottle crate to functionally store my Elite Fly Team and Elite Jet water bottles, which are still my preferred water bottles for on my road bike.
In this article I’ll share my thoughts on the Elite Jet water bottle, the latest addition to the Elite Water Bottle family. I will have a look at some (technical) design details.
As a huge fan of the Elite Fly water bottles, I’ll compare it with the Elite Fly, the older Elite Corsa and also with the Assos Water Bottle.
Assos Water Bottle is the new redesigned 2018 water bottle of well known clothing brand Assos. I used their old black water bottles while testing the Tune Wassertraeger 2.0 bottle cages. The Assos Water Bottle comes with a recognizable cyclist design.
In addition I will do a brief comparison with the Elite Fly Team water bottles, that I’ve reviewed a little while ago.
I will review the Elite Fly Team Water Bottle and ordered a set of the Fly Granfondo Elite White version. I will try to answer the question “How did Elite further innovate the water bottle ?” and compare the Elite Fly Team with for example the Elite Corsa-, Tacx Shiva- or Zefal Arctica thermo water bottle.
