If only you could change the weight of water.

It depends on your bottles
Bottles are not all created equal, some of them are a little skinnier than others. Yes, if you have a skinny bottle this and (several other cages) will eject your bottle. I used this cage on a MTB with a Cleanbottle and had no issues what so ever. This was a rocky course in a race situation so if it was going to eject, this course would of done it. In my experience this cage has been just fine with a proper fitting bottle.
Not Worth the Purchase
I very tight fit for the bottles. I prefer not to wrestle my bottle in and out of the cage. I returned the product.
Would be ok on a road bike, but like a big red eject button for bottles on a MTB. Bought it because it was cheap, carbon, and I was bored. Not recommeneded for MTB or road, unless you ride alone on smooth pavement all the time!
It looks nice. A little thicker and heaver than most carbon fiber cages. But for the price I am happy and I like that I can pull the bottle out from the side. I use it on the seat tube and have not lost a bottle yet. Maybe only done a couple hundrad miles with it.
I had to return them
This bottle holder looks nice, and its light, but it doesn't hold a bottle worth a damn. I had 6 ejections in 100 miles. A real safety issue on a group ride.
Disappointed -- won't seem to hold bottles consistently
I've bought a bunch of Cutter stuff off RealCyclist and Bonktown and am always impressed -- but these bottle cages really have disappointed me. They look great, priced well -- but the one thing they have to do well they don't -- I've lost 2 bottles now on road rides. Twice now I've reached down to grab my bottle and it's gone -- and it's not like I was riding the pave in Belgium, just regular city roads. But the cages don't seem to hold bottles well enough that they pop out.
And I'd even bought the Cutter bottle so it shouldn't have been a fit issue!!
Maybe it's the side opening that's the drawback. Wish I had the front opening instead maybe.
Listed weight is way off
While the item description goes on about the light weight of this cage, I found that the actual weight of just the carbon parts, no screws, for the two cages I ordered were 35 grams. Over 50% more than the listed weight. Straight up s@#$s because my expectations for BC are so much higher!
Also, note that this is a two piece design so you can reverse the way the opening faces - which is nice - but then only one screw holds the actual cage part. This may not ever be a problem, but I am looking elsewhere for a light carbon cage.
What is the weight?
What is the weight?
I got two of these, partially because of the low claimed weight. Actual weights of my two cages with carbon parts only, no screws, were 34.4 and 35.8 grams. This is a 50% percent difference from the claimed weight, and in the wrong direction!
