The TorHans company is bringing some thoughtful engineering into the world of aerobar-mounted hydration. I took an in-depth review at their Aero 20 product, which is both easy to use, and tests very well in the wind tunnel. See the article for a link to their wind tunnel data.

  • The TorHans Aero 20 is a simple, effective, and well-thought-out solution to triathlon hydration.
  • The Aero Mount Bracket cradles the bottle while riding - you just snap it in, and tighten it down with a strap across the front.
  • The Aero Mount bracket is easy to install - just one zip tie on each side, and it adjusts to fit the width of most aerobars.
  • Even on super skinny bikes with no spacers, the TorHans doesn't take up much space at all.
  • The Aero Tray behind the bottle makes a great place to put a computer, and the minimal refill cap is simple but quite effective.
  • Even the straw gets the aero treatment, and the mast helps keep it in place without resorting to a super sharp, rigid straw.
  • This is how TorHans tested all their equipment - it's a set of dummy arms that makes for very repeatable tests.  Although if I'm nitpicking, I'll say that I don't think his hands are optimally positioned - I think it's usually best to wrap hands around the front of the shifters.
  • The TorHans wind tunnel results.
