Occasionally, something a bit different, unique and intriguing comes along in the bike world, and one of that is the Vincero Design magnetic water bottle system. The system is comprised of a water bottle with a slot (female) on one side that has an embedded magnet, and it mates to a magnetized rail mount (male) which is attached via the water bottle bosses to the bike. The slot and the rail align with each other, and the strong magnetic pair keeps the bottle securely attached.
Vincero Design is located in Boulder, Colorado, and they have been designing and building products since 2008, and they are obviously a bunch of engineers, techno weenies and bike geeks. The system I tested, consisted of the edge 16 rail mount, and the s24 water bottle.
The installation of the system was simple, just attach the rail mount to the water bottle bosses with the mount’s wedge pointing down. Fill up the water bottle, and mate the bottle slot and rail mount, and it’s ready to go. I found that it was a tight fit matching up the mount’s holes with my bike water bottle bosses, and there wasn’t much wiggle room.
