The Elite Fly Tex is WorldTour's most used water bottle because it is incredibly lightweight.
Its record weight (at only 54g for the 550 ml version) is made possible by using less plastic, which also guarantees the Elite-classic ergonomic structure that it is easy to squeeze so liquid flow is abundant with the lightest pressure.
Fly Tex Elite is available in many different color options for a perfect match with your bike and your bottle cage. The bottle features an immediately identifiable sport-like design with a new texture designed to improve grip on the bottle, which is sweet when you're riding your bike.

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 really like this bottle, it flows great, is soft enough to squeeze, lid doesnï¿½t leak at all (no drink mix leaking leading to sticky hands). The top pulls apart really easy to fully clean and while the upper indent is small it has a square edge that hooks into bottle cages and keeps bottles secure even on rough gravel
I bought 2 Elite Fly bottles 2 years ago and have been using them since. I also use a Nashbar bottle I bought 10 years ago. On 2 bottle rides I tend to use the Nashbar and one of the Elite bottles, on three bottle rides all three. After 10 years, the Nashbar bottle is still holding up, even its graphics mostly intact. The Elite bottle I use on two bottle rides is coming apart. The outer layers are peeling away, no graphics left. The bottle feels flimsy, but so far is not leaking. It looks like the inside surface is starting to bubble up a little bit, but so far the bubbles seem intact. With my other Elite bottle, the one that gets less use, the outer layer is starting to peel, but some of the graphic still shows. The flow from the Elite is more than the Nashbar, but the Nashbar is enough. I find I empty the Elite bottle sooner than I need to.
Bottle is just as functional as the older models and super light weight. New textured bottom half almost eliminates all of the marring that is visible on my older bottles. I feel that the bottle is also not as slick when wet due to the texture. Great buy.
Wow, this is an excellent water bottle. I switched over from the 550ml Elite Corsa and can't be happier. It's a very lightweight bottle with softer pliability that makes it much easier to drink your liquids. And it slides in and out of my elite cages very great ease and stays very secure. Waiting for more to arrive to order another one!
