The XLAB Gorilla XT Bottle Cage utilizes thicker, stiffer carbon over the standard Gorilla model for twice the holding power over the roughest roads. Its great security comes from six high-shouldered arms, a tall retention tab, and stiff carbon construction. Even with its excellent retention, it is still easy to insert and remove bottles thanks to its flared entry.
Claimed weight is 49 g. Requires traditional bottle shapes with a deep, uniform groove near the top to clear the retention tab. Bottles such as the Camelbak Podium are not compatible.

This cage works as described. Finally a cage that hold onto bottles behind my seat (TT bike). Actually, the grip is so tight that it can be a little tricky to get the bottle out while riding, but becomes pretty easy with a little experimentingpractice. I just wish these things were a bit cheaper.
