Vincero Design Magnetic Water Bottle System Review

Gear Pro Reviews

Additional Bottles
They are going to release a 20 ounce bottle named the s20, along with an aerodynamic model called the sAERO. I think they need to add an insulated bottle version of some sort, to even out the product line?

Bottom Line
The system is amazingly easy to use, and requires three simple steps to get a drink. No longer was I required to yank the bottle out of a cage, twisting and pulling through a large amount of travel, and then jamming the bottle back into the cage when I was done. The rough terrain that I rode did not eject the bottle, so it sat securely on the mount. The S24 bottle itself had an excellent draw, without any leaks, and mated perfectly to the mount, connected through the strong pair of magnets. The edge16 mount was small and unobtrusive, and looked sweet with the carbon weave. The glaring issue, is that the system only works with the Vincero water bottle’s, since nothing else will mate with specialized edge16 magnetic mount. Although the system is slightly expensive, it does include a water bottle and the mount (pseudo cage).

The Vincero Design Magnetic Water Bottle System is innovative, with clean lines, aesthetic looks, great functionality and is just pretty darn cool.

    That’s pretty cool. Well thought out trick little product that’s practical. Not sure if I’ll get one right away but would certainly be a fun gift for someone.

    Is that magnet strong enough to keep full bottle on a trail (say rocky XCM race)? And what about putting bottle back into place with one hand while handling with another and looking on the road? But maybe road cyclists would get one, if weight will be okay for them :)

  • Brian Mullin says:

    Yes, the magnet is pretty freakin’ strong. Not sure about the roadie move, but it becomes real easy to slop it into place as long as you get it close?

    I had an early edition of the Vincero system that was horrendous. I literally couldn’t ride more than a couple hundred yards w/out the bottle popping out on very minor bumps. I hear they made the magnet stronger, but my initial experience was very poor, unfortunately.
