The Arundel Mandible Carbon Bottle Cage holds your bottle with two slender arms that create a smaller cross section yet provide up to 40% more bottle retention than other cages. The Mandible is a minimalist designer's dream — more strength in a smaller package. Arundel offers their low-profile cage with minimalist graphics — No colored decals here.
You can use the Mandible for road or triathlon. Arundel knew that the Mandible had to work, and work better than anything else on the market. Not only does the cage design increase holding power, Arundel lightened the structure by adding a foam core to the carbon cage. Most cages simply cut out the center to save weight. Typically, this process exposes the mounting bolts and arm edges and makes it hard to slip a bottle in or out. The Mandible's smooth, three-dimensional form leaves nothing for the bottom of a bottle to catch on when extracted.

Mounted on the downtube underside position. Used it on many miles and rides of medium-rough gravel. The water bottle and cage definitely took some hits from gravel kicked up from the front tire. I even bumped the empty cage into gate lifting my bike over it. So far, the cage has taken this abuse. Looks good on my gravel bike with left and right-hand Arundel cages on the inside triangle.
I use this cage on all my bikes. It has a strong grip and bottles won't go flying on their own. If you ride group events your fellow riders will thank you. Hands down the best bottle cage out their in my experience although it's a little $$$ at retail. I've reused for over a decade on multiple bikes so they travel well.
Doesn't work with Bivo Raw stainless bottles because it sounds like nails on a chalkboard and is hard (impossible???) to get bottles in and out. Works with the Bivo silicon coated bottles without any rattling... This is the price you pay for great bottle retention, I guess. Went with a stainless insulated bottle for better cold retention and no plastic taste. Can also clean up sports drinks better.
I bought these for a new bike. My old Zipp cages worked great for many years but were starting to flex a bit too much. I got these on sale, they shipped quickly and now have 300 miles on them. So far i am very happy with them.
The traditional bottle cages were causing issues with the bottles falling out and causing possible injuries to other riders. The Arundel Mandible cages hold the bottles snug and not to tight for easy removal. The cages are light weight, strong, and are attractive yet very functional. The older style cages would allow the bottles to slip out when riding a bumpy road and be either broken or lost. Good product for the safety feature a bit pricey but well worth the investment. Nothing worst than to go backwards when looking for a water bottle during a ride.
Great hold for any terrain. Currently running them on my gravel bike. I have rode everything from single track to road and these cages don't let the bottles slip or dislodge. Super happy with the purchase and would recommend.
I bought these to replace some great King stainless cages on my gravel bike. The King cages still lost a (tall, full) bottle once and a while on really rough surfaces. That hasn't happened yet with the Arundel Mandible Carbon cages and the rough surfaces haven't changed. Bonus that they are ultralight and look fantastic. Worth the money.
The Arundel Mandible is the quintessential bottle cage that ticks all the boxes - lightweight, solid construction, easy to use- and best all, it is attractive. Yea, there are lighter options but you might be paying twice as much, or sacrificing everyday usability. The Mandible is well thought out and attaches solidly, and secures generic bottles well. It comes in several textures of carbon weave, but all are great choices. Only caveat - if your bike is on the smaller size, a side loading design like the Arundel Sideloader might be a better option.
There may be slightly lighter cages available but these are my favorite so far. They VERY SECURELY hold bottles and look very carbon sweet. I have both the matte and gloss version, it just depends on the look of that particular bike. They certainly aren't the cheapest but in this case you definitely get what you pay for.
Looks good and works great. Bottles are easier to access than with the King cages I use on my other bike but they still keep the bottles from bouncing out on rougher roads, Can't speak on longevity yet but they seem well made and I don't expect any problems. A little on the expensive side.
It's an expensive cage and I am not really a fan of carbon cages.
But Arundel makes fantastic stuff.
I wanted the best, most reliable cage to keep a bottle secure and this is it.
BTW, the "oil slick" finish is very nice.
Yep that is right - once you buy these, you will be done ever shopping for bottle cages. I have been a Arundel user for the last 6 years...I will not choose another brand. They are lightweight but more importantly I have never lost a bottle from them. And that is both on pothole ridden road rides and rough gravel adventures.
You will not be disappointed - go ahead, add to cart!
I've been through a lot of water bottle cages. Most lightweight cages either break after just a short period of use or don't hold bottles securely. These, however are both lightweight and strong. definitely the best cages I've ever used!
The carbon cage is so incredibly light. It holds the water bottle tightly and securely. It does what it is supposed to do without adding any weight. You don't even know it is there. Great look.
I have had quite a few brands of bottle cages and even a few different Arundelï¿½s. This bottle cage is great, it hold a bottle very secure. It looks great and easy to access from with legit or right side.
