TorHans Aero 20
In the bike department, we all know how the saying goes. Aero trumps weight. SWIMBIKERUN.ph got the chance to road test the newest and probably the most aerodynamic hydration system available in the market today, the TorHans Aero 20.
Currently there are two models available, the TorHans Aero20 and the Aero30. The Aero20 can carry up to 22 oz of liquid, while the Aero30 can hold up to 30 oz.
So just how good is the new TorHans Aero 20 over the other aero drink systems?
To find out, we used the TorHans Aero 20 on a training ride and test rode it from Alabang – Naic – to Tagaytay – and back. That’s a total of 120+ kms. To those familiar with the route, you all know how bumpy the road condition there is. If the Torhans Aero 20 can survive this training ride, it can certainly survive any race day situation and condition.
There are a couple of key features that I wanted to test. Thing’s that I often complain about with other aero drink systems.
- Sturdiness of the mounting bracket.
- Will it eliminate splashing?
- Will the fill-on-the-go cap stay on?
- How easy is it to refill?
- The Aero Straw!
- The Aero Tray!
- Is it really aero?
Installation / Sturdiness of the bracket.
The Torhans Aero 20 comes with it’s own mounting bracket (sold separately). The thing I don’t like about the other aero drink systems is that I can never get to mount my aero drink snugly and securely. Plus I keep on snapping and losing the damn rubber bands that helps hold the bottle in place!
But will it eliminate splashing and will the fill-on-the-go cap stay on? How easy is it to refill?
The Aero20 bottle has a unique Splash Funnel system that is designed reduce splashing and more importantly, keep your liquid where it should be. Tough task if you ask me. So how did the the TorHans Aero 20 fare in our test? Pretty good! Trickles of liquid did form on the lip of the fill-on-the-go cap though (note: trickles). But that’s something I’m sure all of us can deal with.

Is It Really Aero?
It’s quite a bit on the pricey side but the features, functionality, and aerodynamics of the TorHans Aero 20 certainly justifies the cost. It’s on a class of its own. No other company has put this much time, effort, and dedication in making the most aerodynamic drinking system possible. If you’re serious about speed, this is the aero drink for you.
TorHans is slowly making a name for itself in the bike market. It’s now being used by 4x Ironman World Champion Chrissie Wellington and a whole bunch of pro triathletes. I won’t be surprised if TorHans, sooner or later, becomes the must-have aero drink of all multisport enthusiasts.
