They were already working on it but wanted it to be the very best in the World.
By the World’s best they meant3 the lightest, the most positions, the most customizable with options, best engineered and tested, and of course the fastest!
WORLD’S MOST VERSATILE
The Xlab Carbon Sonic has a choice of 3 different angles when attaching to the seat post. The cages have a forward lowest drag position which sets the bottles close to the seat, or a position 1inch (25mm) further back for triathletes that like to sit off the back of the saddle when climbing. There also a variety of bottle cage angles. To add to the fun, you can even invert the carrier for a further 15 positions if you like.
The Carbon Sonic comes complete with it’s own CO2 and Inflator holder , known as the Sonic Nut.
Because the carrier fits on the seat post (Cervelo P2C, P3C, P4C) we have not discovered any seats that you cannot use including the long Fizik, ISM, SMP, Selle Italia, Selle San Marco, Terry and others.
The chassis only weighs a miniscule 49 grams. It is made of aircraft grade High Modulus Carbon Fiber. The screws for the bottle cages and the mounting screws to attach to the seat post are all Titanium. We only use 6AL-4V grade 5 titanium as it has a tremendous Tensile Strength of 130 Ksi.
The Carbon Sonic weighs in at 28 grams lighter than the alloy Sonic Wing.
Located in the position XLAB has determined over a period of 16 years of testing in the Wind Tunnel and by Pros to be the fastest, you can rest assured you have the fastest 48oz Hydration and Storage system on the planet….and don’t forget XLAB has been on the winning bike for 13 of the last 16 IRONMAN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPs!
