Finally a carbon bottle cage that holds your bottle really tightly and is super strong. The Dave-O is Arundel's original carbon water bottle cage and has set the standard ever since. Average weight: 33 grams.
Note: The color option describes the color of the cage label and not the cage itself. The exceptions are oil slick which uses uni-tape construction instead of a weave and the white which has a black label with white lettering.
Please note: Arundel cages are designed for road use only.

I bought this one for the down tube cage placement that I use for the keg with tube and co2 and flat stuff. It is super sturdy and that keg never moves much less falls out even on the toughest surfaces. The regular bottle cases have mandible cages and they are just freaking perfect
I only use Arundel cages on my bikes. The Dave-O cages are probably their strongest carbon cage. I have these on my Salsa Cutty. That bike sees lots of fast, rough, chunky gravel and while other people on my group rides are ejecting bottles left and right...my Arundel Dave Os always hold super tight. PS- Best service, prices and fastest shipping from BTD!
Holds bottles securely even on rough roads, but bottles still go in and out with ease. Very light and look great. Not cheap, but BTD typically has the best price anywhere. As others have said, if you want a carbon cage, these are the best available.
Bought Arundel Dave-O Carbon cages in white to replace some black carbon cages on my white frame Cannondale Synapse that were to light & weak to hold a full water bottles on some Northeast back roads especially after the winters we had recently, after I received them, I installed them immediately the color was almost a perfect match & made a dramatic improvement in my opinion compared to the ones that they replaced also a significant improvement in size & strength with just a small weight penalty of a few grams each which was easy to take, in place of bouncing, broken or the very least dirty water bottles to deal with during rides. Can't go wrong choosing Arundel a hundred percent top quality product! It gets all five stars plus!
I wanted a reliable cage that would hold bottles tight and not fail down the road (previous cage had an elastomeric band that failed at the worst possible time). The one fills the bill. For something that I use a number of times on every ride, I wanted the best.
I recently put these on my Time bike which came with Time bottle cages. Midway through a 60 mille ride, with temperatures over ninety, my front Time cage broke. This is the second time the Time cage has failed and, although they have a lifetime warranty, I switched to the Arundel cage. They are strong, hold the bottle firmly and I am extremely pleased with this purchase.
This cage holds bottles very well. No looking required to know bottle properly seated in the cage. Yeah, it's a bit expensive but I've tried many other carbon cages and these work the best. I've added them to most of my bikes.
This cage is mounted on my road bike. It replaces a brand name cage that occasionally ejected water bottles when I rode over cattle guards. In addition to the added grip, I expect the wider bands to stand-up to the nicking and cutting that seem to be the start of failure for the other cages I have had. I have had this cage for only a month, so it remains to be seen if it loosens up with use.
I no longer use carbon cages because they get all scuffed up inside and look shabby without a bottle in them and then scrape up your bottles as well. For this reason, I moved on to King Titanium. BUT . . . if you must have carbon, I do understand. This is the best of the many I've tried. Rock solid grip, but easy in and out. Very sturdy. Perhaps not as stylish as some, but I think the more beautiful ones break more easily. The Arundel Mandible is good as well if you want something a bit more svelte.
I bought a pair of these to replace my 20-years old Zipp carbon bottle cages. I purchased the cages with the blue insert which matches the blue highlights on my Fuji Gran Fondo 1.1. The cages hold bottles very securely, are very lightweight and great looking. The perfect trifecta!
Great functioning cage. Retrieving of bottle is easy as is the reengagement of he bottle. The cage also looks great and the color accent allows for Cole scheme matching with your rig.
The Arundel Dave-O Carbon cage is a sharp-looking, lightweight cage, but most importantly it works! I've used the Dave-O on my road bike for three years and it still works perfectly. Not so with a competitor's cages which failed at the bottom tab support after just 9 months. I decided to try the Dave-O on my mountain bike, and after six months I'm pleased - no failures and the bottles (even 24 oz) stay put. Definitely worth the money.
