    Fits all bike frames

    Fits all bike frames

    Have you ever purchased a bike part online, waited a week for it to reach you, only to find that it doesn't fit? Incompatibility is a big problem in many industries, and cycling is no exception.

    FIDLOCK has eliminated that issue. Their innovative designs ensure that every bike frame is compatible with their hydration system.

    FIDLOCK's aims to change the way cyclists and athletes hydrate, and that means getting their bottle just about anywhere. So, whether you have a fat bike frame, a frame from the 70's, a frame with a tiny gap, or even a unicycle, FIDLOCK has a way to keep your thirst at bay.

     

    The Bike Base + Modules

    The TWIST Bike Base from FIDLOCK is ultra thin, allowing it to fit on even the narrowest frame gaps. And, with FIDLOCK's variable size water bottles, you can pick the right size bottle for your frame.

    This magnetic base easily fits any standard mounting threads on bikes, and it boasts an ultra-light weight of 16 grams (0.56 oz).

    The smallest combination for the bike base + bottle is our TWIST bottle 450 + bike base combo. The dimensions that a small bottle can fit in on a frame are 6 and 3/4" x 3 and 1/2" (17.14CM x 8.9CM).

    The larger combination that allows you to carry more water is our TWIST bottle 600 + bike base combo. The 600 bottle + base dimensions are 8 and 3/4" x 3 and 1/4" (22.23CM x 8.26CM).

    The Uni Base + Modules

    There are several reasons why someone would want to use the TWIST Uni Base. If your frame’s thread inserts for cages are blocked or non-existent, the Uni Base has you covered.

    Secured with the help of two rubber-backed, adjustable zip ties, the uni base will secure itself to virtually any part of a bike frame.

    Once secured, the all the same FIDLOCK modules (any bottle or our universal connector) are useable with the base.

    Just like the bike base, our smallest combination for the Uni Base + Bottle pairs with our 450 on the TWIST bottle 450 + Uni Base combo. The dimensions that a small bottle can fit in on a frame are 6 and 3/4" x 3 and 1/2" (17.14CM x 8.9CM).

    The larger combination that allows you to carry more water is our TWIST bottle 600 + Uni Base combo. This pair can fit into a 8 and 3/4" x 3 and 1/4" (22.23CM x 8.26CM) space.

    If you're unsure...

    If you’re not positive which base will work best for your frame, run through the following troubleshooting steps.

    1. Check if your bike frame has threaded mounts for a cage or bottle holder.
    2. If so, you’re likely a candidate for our standard Bike Base, but it may be worth checking that the threads are 1.7” (43mm) apart.
    3. If your bike doesn’t have threads, or if the threads are not 1.7” (43mm) apart, you’re a candidate for our uni base.

    If you’re still not sure the FIDLOCK system is right for you, we’d love to help out directly. Contact our support so we can help you decide if this is the right product for you.

    5 Reasons to use a TWIST Bottle

    5 Reasons to use a TWIST Bottle

    Why upgrade from the status quo? What are our top reasons for you to switch to the FIDLOCK system? You asked, we answered.

    Convenience

    The number one reason we recommend switching is simple: FIDLOCK bottles are way more convenient than anything else out there. From the well-thought through Base, Connector, Module system, to the easy and intuitive system for removing and re-securing your bottle, the TWIST bottle was thought through in every aspect.

    Safety

    Bike safety is nothing to joke about. On the road, there are more distractions than ever for drivers, so keeping bikers more alert and aware is extremely important. On the trail or gravel road, obstacles can pop up out of the blue, and bikers who aren't prepared for them could get seriously hurt.

    FIDLOCK's TWIST bottle is so easy to use, it helps keep you alert and aware of the challenges around you. It allows you to focus on what matters: paying attention to your ride.

    Your Bottle Won't Eject

    Have you ever hit a bump or an obstacle and had your bottle pop right out of its cage? This happens surprisingly often, and can be a huge pain and even dangerous, especially during races. Have peace of mind that your bottle is secure with the FIDLOCK TWIST system.

    Doesn't Wear Down Your Bottle / Lasts Longer

    Bottles secured by cages suffer wear and tear. The friction caused by constantly removing and re-securing the bottle causes the plastic to wear down, and eventually make it more susceptible to bottle ejections. We've even seen some bottles so worn down they started to leak.

    FIDLOCK's magnetic system won't wear your bottle down, and therefore it lasts significantly longer than other bottle-and-cage systems.

    Fit's in smaller spaces

    In order to get a water bottle into a standard cage, you have to secure the bottle from the top of the cage, and push down. This requires space above the cage in order to perform the maneuver. Even the side-entry models require extra room.

    With FIDLOCK, you secure your bottle from the side. As such, the magnetic Base design doesn't require extra space above it in order to secure the bottle. This allows FIDLOCK to secure itself in smaller spaces and smaller frames than ever before.

    The dimensions that a small bottle – the 450ML Model – can fit in on a frame are 6 and 3/4" x 3 and 1/2" (17.14CM x 8.9CM). The dimensions that a large bottle – the 600ML Model – can fit in are 8 and 3/4" x 3 and 1/4" (22.23CM x 8.26CM). This allows bikes with space constraints due to frame size, frame design, and reservoir shocks designs to be able to use a water bottle. It may even allow the use of a larger bottle to increase your hydration capacity.
