Drop the competition, not bottles
Our patented FIDLOCK TWIST system locks on and doesn't release until you want it to. With FIDLOCK, mid-ride hydration is easier than ever.
Fit more in tight places
The FIDLOCK TWIST system allows for larger hydration volume in tighter spaces on most frames. If your frame design makes hydration a struggle give FIDLOCK a try and improve your ride.
Fidlock In The News
I’m using a uni connector to hold a Sonos Roam portable speaker, and this mount works perfectly to hold it in place on bumpy city roads. The straps and base are grippy and hold surprisingly well!
This bag is awesome! I have one for both my road bike and gravel bike. My gravel bike has switch out road wheels, so it is convenient to easily switch bags as well. If I do get a flat, the bag comes off making it easy to access the tools and spare tube. Great customer service as well.
Solid Case! Fits the iphone 13Pro like a glove. Works amazing with the bike base mount. Highly Recommended
This system works great. After 4 rides with several jumps, drops and bumps along the way I can assure you that your phone is not going anywhere. However, I have not crash tested this and really not looking forward to writing an update if I do crash. I went through 2 Quadlock handlebar mounts before deciding to try something new. I do like the Quadlock placement with the phone in front of the handlebars and out of the way but just doesn't seem to take the beating of 3 rides per week. The FidLock case attaches with 0 issues or fuzz every single time. You could almost toss it and the base will catch it. Highly Recommended
Was trying to get a 800ml bottle but not available during the promotion period. Hope that it will be restocked soon
Great product and convenient add on to molle
Awesome design for shoulder strap and molle attachment, no longer required external water pocket for backpack
This is perfect for my phone and key fob when I go fishing. The magnetic seal feels solid
Base was easy to install, and the bottle, itself, is great! Easy to squeeze, and great flow of water. Easy to take off and put back into the mount. Only issue I have is that the cap, which is supposed to keep out dirt and debris, is garbage. I have yet to go for a ride and not have the inside of the cap, and mouth piece, be coated with dirt/dust from the trails. Still like the setup and will continue to use it, but the cap needs to be reworked.
So far so good. Holds the phone nicely on the bars. I take it off road and it's handled that well
I have a cabinet full of nalgene-type bottles. This fits them all. The bottles stay secure on bumpy NY roads. I am very happy.
Just hours before starting in my first mountain bike race since I was a teenager, I was stressing. I've been biking singletrack for 35 years and my Camelback has been attached to my body the whole time. But here at the Sea Otter Classic (California) I could see that almost none of the hundreds of racers wore them on course ~ everyone uses frame-mounted water bottles. Cheap bottles are handed out like candy at these events, but I didn't even have a cage on my frame, so I scrambled through the sea of bike equipment tents at the event. Someone strongly advised I visit the Fidlock tent, and I am so grateful.
The core of the Fidlock system is genius ~ multiple combinations of magnets and attachment mechanisms (multiple clip styles, as well as suction cups) which are unbelievably secure and fast, and completely novel. To appreciate it, understand that the magnet is NOT what is holding your bottle, pack, or phone. The magnet helps align the device and automatically activates the rock solid attachment clip or vacuum suction. It's brilliant, and a visit to their extended German-based website reveals how expansive the potential applications are.
I'll let the website explain in detail, but all you need to know is that in person it is shocking how well it works ~ and I consider myself an very discerning equipment shopper. Not only does the magnet do a great job of helping you align the bottle to re-attach it, but it gives a very satisfying 'click' to confirm it's secure. Further, the hidden clip mechanism locks the bottle in place so securely that you literally cannot pull it off unless you rotate it clockwise about 15 degrees or so ~ a very easy and natural movement for your right hand while riding.
Since I was giving up my entire Camelback bladder for the race, I committed to the largest Fidlock bottle (800). It has the signature Fidlock mechanism embedded in the backside, which is very rigid plastic, but the rest of the bottle is a super supple soft plastic that is easy to squeeze and drink from. The bottle comes with a flip-open dust cover for the valve, which makes sense, but since I haven't ridden with a water bottle in decades I was very worried I would be fumbling with it on the singletrack and drop the bottle. The Fidlock rep simply unsnapped it to reveal the valve, and that's how I rode.
Even better, the valve doesn't require a 'teeth pull' to open ~ it has a pressure valve on the inside, so a solid squeeze releases a flood of water. My only slight reservation about the valve is that it doesn't allow you to suck down the last ounce for some reason. I guess the valve requires some back pressure in addition to your squeeze. No biggie, given all the other incredible advantages of this system.
On the trail I found the bottle extremely easy to unclip. A simply, modest clockwise snap of the right wrist and it pops right off. It did take me a few minutes to build muscle memory to relocate the magnetic clip, but anyone who used this system ~ or for that matter already uses a cage water bottle ~ will have zero problem having it become automatic.
For those of you who already use water bottles, keep in mind that since the magnetic clip is on one side of the bottle, you must have the bottle clip facing the frame clip in order to re-attach. Even this only took me a few tries to become easy and obvious.
And the best and most important news is that this Fidlock system is absolutely locked. I admit that I kinda expected this bottle was going to break loose in the first mile of my race, and therefore without any hydration, I'd likely not even finish the race. But it didn't. Not even close. Even with the heaviest water volume (800). In fact, since I was new to the system, a couple times I grabbed for the bottle without twisting my wrist and it didn't budge even with a firm yank. I am so impressed and happy to report that as hard as I jammed through those 25 singletrack miles, and in all the trails I've ridden over the past couple months since then, this bottle has NEVER come off.
So not only did I finish my race, I finished with far less weight on my body and less heat on my back. And now that I'm back on my home trails, I'm looking at Fidlock's entire genius product lineup and thinking maybe I never use my beloved pack again!
Consider this: since the Fidlock frame mount is the same for their bottles and frame packs, you can have one or two Fidlock mount points and choose to configure your bike for two waters, or two packs, or one of each, or neither. If I choose to do a long ride with roadie / gravel friends, maybe I'll double down on the waters and leave my pack at home. If I do an epic backcountry singletrack ride, maybe I carry my water on my Camelbak and use the Fidlock frame mounts and underseat mount for tubes, repair kit, and bandaids.
I'm also a passionate backcountry iPhone photographer so I'll be looking into the phone mount next. I'll bet it's awesome!
Thanks so much, Fidlock,...
Awesome case and mount. Nice and secure. No problem going over rock gardens. Highly recommend. Finally can track my rides!
I love the convenience of this water bottle, I purchased it the moment I heard they released a larger version. Using this alongside my smaller bottle was the perfect setup, too bad I left it on top of my car and drove away :( water bottles lost forever
