XLAB Hydration and Repair carriers have often been copied, but like any copy, it is never as good as the original. With over a decade of experience designing these carriers and winning more Ironman Distance World Championships than all XLAB competitors combined, XLAB has launched the first of the next generation of Xlab Hydration Carriers. Already won Ironman World Championships. This new 'wing' will be on winning race rockets for the next several years. Rear carriers should not interfere with the air on the rider's back, but instead fill in the turbulence 'hole' behind the riders posterior, thereby reducing the rider's drag (which accounts for 64% of energy used on a racing bicycle). Xlab Carbon Wing is designed for 7mm metal saddle rails only.

Storage
XLAB wanted the next generation of carriers to solve the problem of storing keys, cell phones, cash, tire levers, and other essential items. These and other items can be stored in the Xlab Mini Top Bag which drops vertically and easily into the rear 'luggage compartment' and is secured by the top X-Strap.

As you can see below, you have two choices for storing your CO2 cartridges and Nanoflator, or Xlab Speed Chuck on the rear of the Carbon Wing, using the optional hexagonal X-NUT or in the Xlab Mini Top Bag.

Tires and tubes are always an issue, so now you can attach them neatly under the Carbon Wing inside the Xlab Mezzo Lower Bag, Xlab Mega Lower Bag, or without the bag.

Hydration
With the new Carbon Wing you can use a single bottle cage on the rear or one on each side. These cages have no restrictive protrusion where the bottle enters the cage, instead the bottles are held in place with 4 proprietary X-Grip teeth between the two mounting screws.

Adjustable Mounting

One of the key features invented by Xlab is the dual mounting holes for the saddle rail clamps. One position sets the bottle cages close to vertical and the other inclines the cages for rider preference. Because of it's past success, we have kept the same feature in the Xlab Carbon Wing for customizing the installation.
