The Salsa Side Entry Water Bottle Cage is great for smaller frames or when main triangle space is being shared with a frame bag.
Two-piece construction allows set up for right or left side use. The 3/4 wrap cage securely holds bottles over burly terrain and flared wings make getting them in and out easy.

I use the Salsa Sidewinder, now called Side Entry water bottle cages on my gravel and MTBs. The side entry makes access easy when dealing with less area inside the main frame triangle, especially when utilizing frame bags. I've not had a bottle dislodge on the roughest terrain. The Side Entry is easily reversible for lefties or righties during installation. Construction is hefty, so inadvertently distorting or bending the Side Entry is unlikely. I'd recommend them to anyone looking for durable and versatile features mentioned.
Got three of these for my gravel bike. Kept the bottles secured over technical stuff, which is why I got 'em. They also adjust for tall or short bottles which might be useful if your bike is tight on accommodating three cages. I've made the mistake of using less secure cages for lighter weight and regretted it.
