Anyone got one of these? Looks good design wise. I had the original Aero Bento but the rubber was so stiff it was a nightmare getting stuff like chopped-up bar pieces out, so I ditched it.

Once the lid is off a Fray Bentos, it is easy to get to the nutrition inside with a racing spoon...

No but there is a lot of noise around Fuel/Food Cell. Apparently you can fit a lot more in and it has a great slide lid. Not used one myself though.

Looks very similar to the Bento Box for the newest design of Speed Concept, but there's absolutely no way I could get 5-6 gels in mine!

I put the same question on ST, and the consensus seems to be that the rubber they use still makes it difficult to extract stuff. Shame, as it looks great and has some good integration features.

I currently use an xlab stealth pocket 300, which will hold about 2-and-a-half energy bars cut into pieces. Not worried about gels, at least in a bento. I normally take-on bananas during LD events, and save gels for the run. Although in the past I have decanted isogels into an aero bottle on the frame.

i decant my gels into flasks and strap them to my xlab bottle...it may not be too aero, but that encourages me to get through them in a timely manner...i use a pocket rocket on the frame for an emergency bar, hula hoops and jelly babies. The main fuel goes in my suit pockets for LD...

why don't people just stuff what they want in a cycle jersey Confused Confused Rolling Eyes


Last race I did - 3 cheese rolls, bag of haribo, chewing gum (to clear the palette between courses) bag of cheddars and some flapjack.

Because it's less faff to get it out of a bento box, because most tri-suits have small fiddly pockets....and because most of us don't take a picnic with us Smile

Awesome - ignore the anti-picnic brigade - they are just jealous !

I like how they show CFD with the box stuck right behind the steerer, and then a real life example where it has a 10cm gap with wires and all. Smile
