When I first got around to test out the system, and I was truly amazed how nice it worked. The water bottle pulled off with a slight tug (they are strong magnets), and only required about an inch of movement for it to release. The bottle has a nice drinking valve, and a gentle squeeze started a fast flow without any drips, and there was no need to pull open the valve with your teeth to get a drink. When I put the bottle back towards the mount, it seemed to get sucked right onto the wedge without me doing any positioning. It was literally three quick steps to get a drink of water, pull the bottle off, squeeze a drink and position over the mount. Even when I got it positioned slightly off the mount, with the bottle nose high, it didn’t seem to make much difference. If you get confused on the orientation of the bottle for remounting, the Vincero logo’s gives you a reference point.
It only took me a few tries of using the system, and interfacing the bottle and mount became second nature. My rides consisted of some stutter bumps, tree roots and other jarring terrain, and the bottle securely stayed on. I even took it through a short couple of rock gardens, and it never ejected (although I got ejected once).
The wedge shaped rail mount is known as the edge16, weighs 16 grams, and is made from a carbon fiber composite and uses a rare earth magnet. The edge16 is small, light and looks trick (love the carbon weave). Keep magnetic credit and ID cards, and people with pacemakers away from the strong magnetic fields of the magnet!

The s24 water bottle mates with the edge16 mount, utilizing an embedded rare earth magnet, and is one half of a strong magnetic pair. The s24 weighs 85 grams, has a 63mm wide mouth, uses a trick silicone valve, and is 100% BPA, DEHA, and DEHP free. The wide mouth makes it easier to pop in some ice cubes, which is good since the bottle isn’t insulated. The bottle is recyclable, and carries the Plastic Identification Code of number 4, which is for Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE).
