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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This cage is simple, lightweight, good looking, and the most secure bottle cage I own. My only complaint is the inner top coat wears out over time such that when you try to insert bottles which have gotten sticky due to spills and sweat, it can be a little difficult to reinsert the bottles. The good news is the bottles are even more secure. You will never lose bottles with this cage.
Replaced the great CYFAC cages that came with my bike, due to one having been stolen. These are not the very lightest cages, but offer super secure grip on your bottles which are not going to get launched when you hop over the next set of railroad tracks. I dig the look on my frame, I have a pair of them.
the arundel mandible carbon cage is very lightweight and stronger than i expected. i use it with a 1 liter bottle and it is snug as a bug in a rug. it is a bit pricey BUT you get what you pay for....no bottles jumping outta the cage and getting run over by your bike or others with you. sure when the cheeper cages break you can just throw it away (where is away anyways?) and buy another cheap one and on and on and on. spend the money and be happy and secure with arundel!
