Elite, as the official licensee of the Tour de France, created a limited-edition TDF series with 3 bottles with the official design for the 2021 edition of the Grande Boucle.
Its record 54 grams-only weight (550ml) is achieved through its variable thickness. Thicker on the base and thinner on the central body, this doesn't just make it possible to use less plastic material, it also ensures a tight grip when cycling and an easy to squeeze ergonomic structure so liquid flow is abundant with the lightest pressure.
The Elite Fly range is widely known as the lightest water bottle line ever created thanks to its 30% weight decrease compared to traditional bottles on the market. This is achieved through their variable thickness squeezing structure - they've got a thin middle part and a thick bottom, so there's less material used at no expense of the resistance or functional qualities of the bottle.
At the same time, the Fly bottles‘ soft body offers a higher liquid flow rate compared to traditional bottles, helping you get liquids in the saddle simply and quickly, such as in a race situation.
The ergonomic cap with wider flat push-pull nozzle and a wider mouth ensure high liquid flow, which is also guaranteed by the soft bottle body: you will just need to squeeze gently your Fly Elite to get a vigorous liquid flow.
Easy to open and close with your mouth, the Fly’s valve is ideal when you’re using this bottle while you’re moving on your bike. The bigger opening make it easy to fill the bottle up and wash it properly.
Feturing a new racing design, the Elite Fly bottles work extraordinary well and stable in all cages so that bottle insertion and extraction are smooth and easy every time you're riding. Compact design means the Fly is perfect for road bikes as well as gravel bikes and mountain bikes that feature smaller frames.
The bottle’s practical and sustainable structure is designed to eliminate excess material during production and, by doing so, have the lightest product in the market with no waste.
Elite firmly believes that each athlete is responsible for taking care of the world and the environment everyone rides in. In developing our products and implementing new sustainable manufacturing processes, we consider both materials and technologies. That’s why we’re proud to use over 30% less plastic than average to create one single bottle of the Fly range.
By making our Fly bottles so lightweight by design, we can significantly reduce our carbon footprint and help ease pressure on the environment by ensuring the lowest CO2 emissions from our produtcion of water bottles.
