    just when you thought the whole "women's specific" thing might be taking a turn for the logical...

    from CyclingNews:

    Elite expand range for women's market

    Elite has announced a women-specific design for its new Kit Azzurra drink bottle and cage combination. The new kit is made up of a Hydra drink bottle and a Custom Race bottle holder with an all-new design and colour scheme.

    The Hydra drink bottle has a capacity of 550 ml, with an easy grip and push/pull top, while the Custom Race cage auto-regulates to the bottle's diameter.

    hahaha

    .......maybe we can get a real woman to review it and tell us whether it is superior to her previous, gender neutral waterbottle?

    My husband's comment was "ribbed for her pleasure."

    It's just the fact that they made a WSD water bottle. What is so non-woman-specific about a normal water bottle?? Except that they don't have flowers on them and a vague "toy-like" appearance.

    Boy, that is tacky in the extreme... I like my bottles clear and my cages black, thank you very much.

    although this is unnecessary and kind of demeaning I think I know what they were aiming for in that the "ribbed" (what else can I call it) part makes it easier to grip and pull out of the cage.

    I think the ribs would be useful. I often feel like my bottle is going to slip out of my hand when I'm wearing long fingered gloves.

    Who uses a 500 ml bottle unless you have vehicle support?

    Editing: OK, I do but only on one mtb that doesn't have space for a larger bottle and then I also wear a hydration pack. That's a pretty small niche market.
