Description

Twice The Holding Power — Half The Weight

The Arundel Mandible Carbon Bottle Cage holds your bottle with two slender arms that create a smaller cross section yet provide up to 40% more bottle retention than other cages. The Mandible is a minimalist designer's dream — more strength in a smaller package. Arundel offers their low-profile cage with minimalist graphics — No colored decals here.

You can use the Mandible for road or triathlon. Arundel knew that the Mandible had to work, and work better than anything else on the market. Not only does the cage design increase holding power, Arundel lightened the structure by adding a foam core to the carbon cage. Most cages simply cut out the center to save weight. Typically, this process exposes the mounting bolts and arm edges and makes it hard to slip a bottle in or out. The Mandible's smooth, three-dimensional form leaves nothing for the bottom of a bottle to catch on when extracted.

Features:

  • Carbon fiber bottle cage
  • Sleek design with minimal graphics
  • Designed primarily for road use
  • Available in multiple colorways
  • Weight: 29g

  • B-Stock - This product has one or more B-Stock units available. These units can be purchased at a discount (see option select).

    Beautiful and very secure

    I have the carbon bottle cages on one road bike and the steel cages on another. Both are very secure and look awesome. I like them better than any other cages I've had I think. Somehow it's just easier to get the bottles in and out of while I'm riding but they aren't loose.

    Best Bottle Cage!!!

    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.

    Easy to install and very dependable with no water bottle slippage.

    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.

    Best. Cage. Ever.

    These are expensive, but worth it. They are the only cages I've found capable of securely holding bottles through the fast, rocky descents on my cross bike.

    It Just Works

    I have had one set of Mandibles on a road bike for 13 years now. Never ejected a bottle in 25,000+ miles, positive in/out. I don't think about it. Highest compliment I can pay to a water bottle cage.

    Holds Water Bottles Snug

    I bought these for a new bike. My old Zipp cages worked great for many years but were starting to flex a bit too much. I got these on sale, they shipped quickly and now have 300 miles on them. So far i am very happy with them.

    Tighter than a gorilla fist

    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.

    The best cage.

    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.

    Excellent light bottle cage

    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.

    Good bottle cage

    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.

    Expensive but awesome.

    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 last bottle cages you will ever need

    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!

    Best Carbon Cage you can get

    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!

    Awesome grip and a sleek profile

    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 carbon cages were easy to install and hold the water bottles very tight with no slippage.

    Previous to my purchase of the Mandible Carbon Cages I was using the more traditional water bottle cages and was having problems with the bottles falling out. This was a hazard when cycling with other riders and usually the bottle were either damaged or lost. The Mandible Carbon Cages are light weight and very strong they have a tight grip on the bottles but easy to remove. When riding over bumpy roads the bottles do not move or fall out. There is more cost but worth the investment. I have recommended the Mandibles Carbon Cages to other riders.

    Super light and super strong.

    What is the saying, strong, light, cheap...pick two? It is amazing that a cage this light can be this strong. If there is any fault at all, it is that the bottle is VERY secure. There is no slippage, no rattling and absolutely no launching. This may be the best bottle cage ever designed. Light enough for the most expensive, light weight steeds, great carbon look and does its job to hold the bottle. What more can you ask for? Okay, maybe a little cheaper...

    Original price was always a bit too expensive, pulled the trigger when they were on sale. Great cage, very light, holds bottle in place. What more would you want.
