With a simple, light, and basic design, the Profile Kage Water Bottle Cage holds tight and doesn't leave bottles with telltale metallic grime. The Profile Kage is injection molded nylon with fiberglass strands for strength.
Camelbaks are nice but if you like traveling light you can hydrate with a water bottle and a cage instead.
Light and sturdy
Great bottle holder if you want your bottles to stay put during a technical mountain bike trail.
On the smaller frame bikes, this does not work well as it's difficult to get bottle out, would work fine on larger frame bikes. For smaller frames, get the side open cages...
I bought two of these for my Giant Defy and they're great! I had the older model on another bike and had bottles bounce out but they've changed the design and now these stay in no problem. I plan on getting for my Specialized as well.
These are way better. I have never lost a bottle in one of these, unlike some of the bottles that have been launched from my wire cages. They hold a bottle tight even if the rubber band breaks after a few seasons. Plus it's light and much cheaper than some of the ridiculous models for the weight weenies.
Best bottle cage ever.This cage grabs the bottle firmly and can be used for road or mountain biking. Does't stain the bottles and for the price you won't find anything else. The design hasn't changed for years because it simply works.
These worked really well. I've put hundreds of miles on my bike with these attached through almost entirely gravel roads and I have not once dropped a water bottle. They hold insanely well and are a great value. For the record I use a 24 ounce fox water bottle in them.
