Light, interesting shape
by Tim S.
Central PA.

Tight fitting on water bottle, still after several weeks, almost need to muscle it out, could be my bottle, may need more break in time. Would have preffered mor carbon weave/ look to it.

Super cage - holds bottles snug when the going gets gnarly

I read a lot of reviews complaining about how tight bottles fit into these cages, and ordered a pair anyways, enamored by the price/weight. Indeed the cages do hold bottles nice and snug, and when on a group ride, while others pop a bottle out of their cage on landing a bunny hop or over fast-paced trail riding, my bottles don't budge. To make the cages more functional I put them in boiling water with a BALL jar wedged in it to ease the tension a bit. The result is still a snug fit, but I'm not fighting the cage to insert and remove bottles on the fly. Hope this helps some others who may have been initially turned off by how snug the fit is.

Extremely fragile. holds bottle poorly

This cage did not last long on my bike. From the start, there was a lot of lateral mobility to the bottle, lots of shaking. Eventually, the lower bolt hole cracked from top to bottom, rendering the cage useless. It might be, as they state, used by a lot of pro riders in the peloton, and that's fine if you get a free replacement after every race. If you are a regular Joe and the cage is not going to last even a reasonable amount of time... why bother!? Get something else.

Lightweight and secure
by Anonymous

I have these on both of my bikes now and use them with Elite bottles. The bottles slip in and out easily but they are still held in securely. Haven�t lost a bottle yet even on gravel rides.

Holds the bottle very tight

This is a lightweight cage that appears to be very well made. I've only had them on my bike for a couple of rides, so I can't comment on how durable they are, but it looks good.

The cage holds my Camelbak insulated water bottles very tightly. These would be a good choice for a mountain bike or gravel bike where you need to worry about the bottles bouncing out. For a road bike, something that is easier to get the bottles in and out might be preferred.

Snug fit. Only works with some bottles.
by KurtRK

These cages have no give to them, so only certain bottles fit well. Elite water bottles fit perfectly in the Elite cages. Imagine that! I found a Specialized bottle that fit too. When you have the right bottle, they're nice cages, holding the bottle snugly, but not too snugly. They could be a little tougher. I lightly crashed the bike, and a thin piece snapped. It should be wider and thicker to withstand a little more abuse.

Nice but heavier than mfr's spec

Seemed wise to get Elite cages given that I recently switched to Elite Fly bottles, which are softer than typical water bottles. These hold the Fly bottles securely enough but not too tight. But disappointed that the first one I got weighs 28g (calibrated scale) rather than the mgr's claimed 23g, off by more than 20%!

My bottles don't fit

Ordered these to go on my new gravel bike because they stated your bottles won't launch. Arrived at the trail and tried to load my Podium bottles but they wont fit, they are too big. I then found a review stating that it is an issue for these cages. Waist of my money.

Perfect for my Canyon Endurace (XS frame)

Ordered two of these with two Elite Fly bottles for my Canyon Endurace. When I received the box I actually thought it must be empty because they were so light. They fit perfectly, whereas I could not get my old bottles and cages to fit into my XS frame size. The cages hold the bottle securely but its still easy to get them in/out.

Light but tight

As light as advertised; sleek look; but, bottles fit VERY tight, to the point I can�t get a drink on the fly. Maybe good for mt biking or a secondary bottle holder.

These bottle cages work really well. Like a vise grip for the bottle. No drops and no worries even on gnarly gravel descents.
