This is a great small water bottle. Like the ad says, it is odorless and tasteless. I needed a small water bottle for the seat tube bottle holder on my full suspension bike and this fits perfect, no interference with the rear suspension stroke. Very lightweight and soft, just squeeze and your drink is flowing through the valve.
I love the look of this bottle and that it's different from the Specialized bottles I see everywhere these days. The colors currently on offer are awesome. I picked up some light green ones and they are a great compliment to my green bike frame. Functionally, the bottles work well. The nozzle has great flow. I like the design of this bottle better than others even though I am having a slight problem with one of them where the nozzle is a little too easy to close. Maybe I got a dud. Either way, the bottle works fine. The top needs to be screwed on tight to avoid leaks. A slightly quirky bottle, but still my favorite.
I been involved in road cycling and racing for significant time and tried all types of bottles , but the Elite Fly Bottle (550ml) delivers in all areas, lite weight,great grip and easy to hold, looks great on your road bike and is definitely a head turner when you match the any of the great pro cycling colors they offer to match your bike and kit. I like a bottle that blends into your bike . I highly recommend this bottle you wil feel like you have a brand new bike once you drop you new Elite Bottle into your water bottle cage.
Good because I am a weight weenie and this is super light. Good because it is minimalist and looks cool in my bike. Good because it is easy to grab, easy to squeeze for a big volume drink and turns back to shape immediately.
If you have the Elite Vico cage, this is a (the only?) bottle that will definitely fit. It weighs virtually nothing. The cap design works well for me. The 2 negatives on the bottle are that the graphics wear off pretty quickly, and the clear bottle stained the first use from my drink mix. Neither of these issues bother me too much, since I keep buying these bottles. The oldest one I have is about 3 seasons old, and it functions just fine.
I'm not a tall guy and I like riding with a revelate design frame pack. When I do, these bottles fit perfectly underneath in my bottle cages and not protrude too much into my frame pack. Yes, I'm also using one of those bottle cage adapters that lets me mount the cages lower. I just wished there are also lower profiles frame packs out there.
The Elite Fly Bottle is my new favorite because it's made of a nice squeezable material, it has a straight shape with a large mouth that makes it easy to fill, and it's lightweight. The cap secures nicely with no leaks, the nozzle delivers fluid quickly, and the whole thing cleans up easily. I didn't know a bottle could be this good.
I love the bottles and they look amazing (new). Lightweight and I didn't find any issue at all with the thin sidewalls or valves.
My only negative is that the lettering and branding on the bottle quickly rub off from the bottle cages.
Fantastic color choices featherweights,If your weight- weenie These are 31.3 grams less then a standard specialized water bottle.
Your best bet is to use these for your Short fast group rides or crit races,
I have no issue with these leaking Easy to clean to.
