Zéfal Bidon / Water Bottle Review

Zefal bidon

I bought this 750ml Zéfal bidon from Condor Cycles in London well over a year ago. I was not too keen on the SIS jibber jabber printed on it, but it has a bigger capacity and was on sale. What’s it like?

It smells. A nasty plastic smell that does not go away after numerous washes in the dishwasher and by hand.

It leaks. It won’t matter how tightly you screw on the lid. It will leak. If you mix energy powder, apple juice or whatever, then you will have a sticky frame and drive train after a ride.

Zéfal bidons? Non, merci.
