In our quest to create the ultimate bottle cage, we found ourselves completely fascinated by the look, feel and durability of tubular titanium construction. This combination of design characteristics produces a cage that has better retention on gravel and other harsh surfaces and has proven to be the superior design when mounted on the underside of the down tube, so common in adventure riding and touring. While classic in appearance, this material and its manufacturing are as complex and high tech as it gets.
The Straw Specifications:
Cleaning and care: Oils from your hands and fingers can change the anodized color. To revive color and/or clean the cages (and straws), use rubbing alcohol and a soft cloth. Do not use abrasive products, this will damage the anodized finish. For the straws, dish soap and water are best.
Still debating whether they're worth the price tag, but I have been pleased with how well they match the Chris King Matte Bourbon components I have on my bike, and how light they are. I don't count grams, but any cut weight is a bonus. I'm also seeing that they hold my water bottles much better and more securely than did my last set of cages, which were a copper set that just quite didn't match the Bourbon headset, hubs, and bottom bracket I run.
These are lovely but really functional water bottle cages. Yes they are not cheap … and I know they are light but I e put them on a steel (which is real!) bike so clearly weight is not my issue. I look at them and use them and they make me smile. If you can afford them I’d say BUY
Awesome ! Love it
