The original Carbon HydroTailTM was literately fine tuned in the wind tunnel as my prototype (that still tested well) broke during a test and when it broke the aero factor became more apparent. My cool looking idea became an aerodynamic advantage for us; no way would this have happened had we just faxed a drawing somewhere and got a finished product. Testing and development lead to great things. Plus the lower bottle position is easy to get to and even easier to get your legs over when getting on you bike! I won’t ever say I invented the concept but certainly brought attention to the cause! For 08′ I introduced the same model in aluminum with upgraded features that users felt would be great additions such as threaded inserts( instead of locking nuts that were an industry first on the carbon HydroTail), more saddle positions and the almighty Cervelo seat post specific model, an industry first again! In 2010 the BLAZE Tail TM was released.
The Blaze Tail take rear hydration to the next level in terms of unlimited positioning to achieve the fastest, easiest and most effective way to grab a drink in flight!
