Select Elite Category
The Elite Fly bottle (750ml) has worked well for me. I am particular about the spout, requiring ease of opening using one hand and teeth, and a good flow rate. The Elite Fly answered the mail!
The only negative is that the bottles can be easily stowed while deflated (if they are sealed before allowing to re-inflate), if stowed while deflated they are easily bounced out of the bottle cage while riding.
Overall, I recommend this product, 4-stars.
I own one of these bottles now, and am lingering on purchasing a second. While I'm generally happy with this purchase, i have not pulled the trigger on what would be the second that is currently in my cart. Regardless you buy this bottle when you want thermal, and lightweight.
Lightweight, keeps drinks cold (there's wiggle room here though), easy to grip with sweaty hands, possibly the easiest to clean bottle ever, certainly the easiest to clean thermal bottle I've ever owned, great spout that allows drink to flow freely
One of the most expensive thermal bottles, would prefer a larger size offered, while drinks are cold, my bottles from polar or camel perform much better holding drink temps, and while all three are close in external size, polar and camel give more volume
I am quite confident eventually i will purchase an additional bottle, but the price performance is really rough. It is the fact that i clean all bottles after every use, but my polar AND camel bottles have grown mold at some point which i attribute to nooks and crannies my bottle brush struggles to find. This bottle from elite is essentially a cylinder made to be easy to clean.
Put 2 on my road bike, the insulated bottles I use are tight inside the cages which is perfect for me on bumpy roads. I can see where some people during a race might not want to make the extra 1% effort to get bottle out of tight cage, but it works for me. I am commuter/ recreation rider/ fondo and occasional raer. I like that the cage does not blacken my bottles like the aluminum cage. However, it is heavier than my old aluminum cage, but that's ok.
