product description
The X-Lab Gorilla Carbon Cage helps prevent water bottles ejecting from cages on bumpy roads, mountain bikes and saddle-mounted water bottle cages. This water bottle cage was designed specifically for rear hydration systems. The carbon water bottle cage has over twice the gripping force of conventional carbon cages due to the 6 high shouldered carbon gripping fingers, tall retention tab at the top and thicker carbon. The X-Lab Gorilla Carbon water bottle cage will fit on any standard cage mounts. This is a favorite!

  • Tall Gripping sides for a 7 lb. grip on bottle
  • Stiff top lip helps retain bottles
  • Flared entry for fast insertion
  • Thick shelf to support large bottles
  • Weight: 38g
  • Colors: Gloss Black(BLK), Red (RED), White (WHT), and Matte Black (MAT).
Shipping weight: 1.0 lbs.

Very Strong

I have been using these bottles as long as I have been doing triathlons. I have only ever dropped one bottle and that was a normal bottle from a water station and it was really my fault. First time I've bought from here but they are a bit pricy...
Strong Grip Looks Good

Bottles still fall out
March 31, 2014
Bought 2 of these to go behind my seat on my tri bike with a x-lab sonic wing. I've tried 4 different cages and have had no real luck. 2 have broken and bottles fell out of them all. I tried the gorilla cage because it was designed for the rear mount and bottles still fall out. It happens at a higher speed and hitting a bump on the road. I gave it 2 stars cause it hasn't actually broken yet. Too pricey for not holding the bottles in. Now I have to use straps to hold them in.
Durable, Lightweight

Major design fault.
April 30, 2011
Used the bottle cages on my xlab wing for the first time at a century ride. Bottle ejected in 1st 15 miles almost taking out a cyclist behind me. Even though I kept putting my hand back to check bottles were secure, still lost on two more occasions. The cage has a V shaped opening and the bottles can easily be pulled through it. I'm using camelback podiums as bottles.
Poor Grip
