Mile 22

Fuel Dock / HX2 System



Fuel Dock is the hydration station you’ve always wanted for those long prone paddles, but had to rig up yourself. No more cutting up surf fins or trips to the bike shop for overpriced cages. Just pick an angle for your bottles, mount ‘em up and go. Mount them low for maximum visibility, or mount them high for surf-zone security. Mount them in the middle (as shown) and be the Goldilocks of the sea, if that’s your thing.

The Fuel Dock is our own custom design, made from extremely durable HDPE, and precision manufactured using CNC and laser cutting tech. Ten rounds of prototypes and months of testing with the Mile 22 team of endurance mules resulted in the best fin box mount the prone world has ever seen. Use the slot at the base to stuff in a few gels, or thread your locking strap through for added rack security. Note: This system does not accommodate our GPS post/brace with TWO bottles. If you want to run a 2+GPS setup, check out our FD2.2 System.

There are plenty of bottles out there, but the Sport Insulated from Polar Bottle is the original BPA-free insulated fuel tank, very lightweight and squeezable. 24 refreshing ounces of your favorite beverage will stay cool TWICE as long because of Polar’s Tri-Layer insulation and heat reflective tech. Chill your bottles overnight, load em up with water or go-juice, and enjoy cool hydration for hours at sea. Surge Caps give you an unrestricted blast of hydration on demand, and are color-coded... you get one silver, one charcoal. This makes it easy to distinguish between bottles when one has plain water and the other has an electrolyte beverage. How clever! Note: Bottles come standard with Surge Caps. TubeCaps shown in action photo are available separately for purchase on this site.

We’ve spent years trying out different bottle cages. The Sport cage is our go-to. They grip your bottles firmly for hectic trips through the surf zone. They’re made from rugged yet lightweight Nylon, and two sets of mounting holes allow further customization for your bottle positions. With three angles on the mount, two sets of holes on the cages, and the ability to customize each side differently, there’s way more positions than you need. *Cages come in black. (Blue cages shown are for visibility.)

All hardware (included!) is high-polish stainless steel to combat the corrosive powers of salt water and elements. Comes with a finger-friendly no-tool mounting screw and plate, low profile mounting screws and lock-nuts for the cages, and even the roll pin that slides into the fin box track is 316 Stainless.

Every detail of the Fuel Dock™ system has been carefully thought out, with customization, ease of use and durability as our goals. It comes as a complete package; 1 mount, 2 cages, 2 bottles, 2 Surge Caps, hardware and some stickers! Light assembly required. Tools req: Phillips screwdriver, 11/32” (or adjustable) wrench, two fingers.

Don’t stay thirsty… stay hydrated, my friends!

** A note about our prices: Inflation is everywhere, and we are not immune. We've seen our costs rise on nearly every component of this system, and in the case of our Fuel Dock mounts, the materials cost has doubled since fall of 2021. We are doing our best to keep our prices in range, and we know our system is more expensive than the other options. That said, we know our products are far superior, and we back that up with thoughtful customer service, tremendous user satisfaction and we stand behind every product we make. We promise Mile 22 Fuel Dock systems will outperform your expectations and our competitors.
