I love my X-Lab wing. I can't imagine not having a couple of bottles behind my seat. Although I'm swapping it out soon because my new Fizik saddle has them built in to it. Also, for what it's worth, a lot of people have been very impressed with X-Lab's customer service as well.

I like mine.  Last year was the first year I had wings and I got used to them pretty quickly.  I liked having the bottles behind me and out off the bike frame tubes.

I just bought a Carbon Wing and it fits my Adamo Prologue without issue. Solid construction and good design - I am happy with it. Pricey, but cool-looking. And nothing screams "triathlete" in quite the same way (for good or ill).

i think they all fit for the adamo, but you wont be able to fit a bag in the "storage" area because of the lip for racking your bike in transition.  i think i read somewhere that you can just turn the wing upside down to fix the issue.

no problem, i actually have a wing in the mail to me right now since i have learned that the bulk of my long riding will be on my TT bike this year.  i'll respond if i find anything contradictive to my earlier post.

With the recent move to mounting a water bottle onto your aero bars to save on drag I decided to look at a similar setup. Here are the results of my testing of this hydration setup.
