Profile Design Aero HC Drink System review
Just about scraping in as a middleweight contender at 284g, Profile Design’s Aero HC Drink System is on the cheaper end of the scale. The integrated bracket and velcro mounting system is fairly hassle-free and fits all but the narrowest set-ups.
An additional bracket over the top of the bottle adds belts-and-braces security on rough roads, but few other systems ejected their bottles so this could be overkill.
There’s no bite valve and the straw sticks upright right in your face. It also bucks the usual refilling valve design and instead has a simple, effective and easy-to-use flip-top lid.
We also like the removable nose cone lid, which makes adding energy powders and cleaning far easier. It certainly looks aero, but doesn’t have the extensive data of something like the X-Lab Torpedo System 100. It does have a computer mount but, being rear-mounted, does require a significant shift in head position to view.
Verdict: Well-priced, easy to set up and a decent design… just a couple of minor niggles, 85%
