You’ve seen a few reviews recently on NeverReach products. We did a final review on the NeverReach Pro Rear Mounted Hydration System. Our final opinion on the Pro was that it’s a great product and very useful for Ironmen and distance riders. The NeverReach Go! is a smaller version for sprint or Oly distance tris or for your average recreational rider. We did an initial review in July and have completed the final review.
About the NeverReach Go! Hydration System:
The NeverReach Go! system is the little brother of the Pro System. The Go holds 38 oz. of liquids compared to 64 oz. for the Pro System. The Go! is a basic sphere shape, not as aerodynamic as the teardrop of the Pro. Both NeverReach systems feature the same tubing and ‘Easy Flow’ mouthpiece. The Go! releases easily from the mount for cleaning.
Mounting the NeverReach Go! Hydration System:
Final Thoughts on NeverReach Go!:
As we mentioned, we used our standard test bike for this test. We mounted the Go! on an old saddle because it didn’t fit our Adamo seat. The mounting was simple. We removed our aerobars to simulate a recreational or short tri bike setup.
We didn’t have any trouble adjusting the mouthpiece to work without our aerobars. We have ridden numerous times including hills, flat stretches, and other various environments. We didn’t know what to expect on hilly rides, both uphill and downhill, but we never experienced a problem accessing the water or with the water leaking.
The entire system is well made, feels good when mounted on your bike, and seems to be without design flaw. There are no leaks, not gaps, no problems at all with the mounting and usage of the Go!.
We have ridden about 150 miles with the Go! mounted on a test bike. This represents a few months of recreational riding for most people, so we feel we can speak well of the durability of this product.
We believe NeverReach has created a well made and usable product and recommend you consider the NeverReach Go! if you’re in the market for a hydration system that’s more glamorous than your standard bottle cages. The Go! costs about the same as two cages, two bottles, and the cost of mounting the cages, so price-wise, it’s a wash.
