The jaws of cycling life.

The Arundel Mandible Water Bottle Cage was designed with two slim pieces that grasp your water bottle like jaws, securely holding your bottle in place whether you stick to smooth roads or take the stairs at your local cyclocross race. It is constructed from carbon fiber that has been given a foam core to further reduce weight. The mounting bolts are exposed, but the clean lines of the Mandible prevent your bottle from getting caught when pulling it out. This sleek package, with minimal graphics, guarantees your water will always be there when you need it.

I ordered the Oil Slick cage, and it looks so good on my Black-on-White Cervélo R3! These were replacements for old Taxc cages, which had a very loose grip on my bottles from the beginning. I never lost a bottle, but they sure rattled around on rough pavement. Who knew how smooth my bike would sound if the bottles were solidly held in place! I'm pleasantly surprised by the combination of holding a firm grip on my bottles while also making it easy to slide them in and out. In sum, good looks and reliable function.

I've been crushing new Tour de Commute PRs since buying two of these. The (psychological) gains of dope cages (that no one else sees) is significant. In my testing, the Matte is 4.7% more efficient than the Oil Slick variations. This is likely caused by them not properly complimenting my Canyon frame, therefore reducing said psych gains. Alright- with the caveat that my previous Mandibles set were stolen, along with my bike, these have stood years of use and my new set looks exactly the same. Are they *really* necessary for any of us? Def not. Do they work? Sometimes a little too well but then, when bombing down the ridiculously pot-riddled tarmac that are Seattle streets or single track in the foothills, my bottles don't rattle like my teeth and I know they aren't going to fly off.

Does it fit the newer Black Canyon bottles(Camel)?

Nice cages.

Familiarity:

The cages work really well in holding the bottles snug and it is easy to remove most of the time. I found after freezing a Camelbak bottle the bottle becomes snug and when it sweats as the bottle is defrosting the bottle is difficult to remove. Once the outside moisture has dissolved the bottle is much easier to remove.

Light but not great retention of bottle

Lost two water bottles (standard Trek/Specialized ones) with these cages on road rides since Sept 2018. Going back to King cages because I’ve never lost a bottle with King, even during gravel races.

These water bottle cages are the best I've ever had! They look great, are sleek, and really hang on to your water bottles. No bottle has ever fallen out. I have these on both of my bikes.

5 years after purchasing the Arundel Mandible cages, I'm still using the Mandible cages. They hold bottles on the roughest roads, look great, and weigh very little!

What's Exciting About Bottle Cages??

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

Having fussed around with Elite and Spesh and finally got fed up losing another bottle I bit the bullet and bought two of these. These work! Easy in and easy out and securely hold. And they are beautiful! Oil slick version looks great. Yes they are expensive but you won't be disappointed.

Great cages

Great cages, that securely hold bottles and look good. Love that you can get them in matte or gloss, and 3k or UD to match builds. Reasonably lightweight and work great.

Great looking cage that holds my bottles well. Any cage is light, buy it cause it does it's job and looks great doing it.

It just works

Familiarity:

I got tired of losing bottles on the horrendous roads of MA when my prior carbon cages lost their grip, and it became more than a bit dangerous when it happened during fast group rides. Enter the Mandible, which maintains a vice-like grip on my Podium Chill bottles while making them very easy to remove and replace without looking. Plus they look badass. Pricey, but it is the best-looking and best-performing cage around.

Super tight gripping cages for the mountain bike. Light and look good. I use the side loader cages on my road bike. I am a big fan of Arundel products, and these cages are a good example.

The PR's Keep Coming

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I just can't believe how many trophies and PR's I am getting on Strava after purchasing two of the Matte bottle cages. Every gram counts now, so much so, I reduced the number of Skratch scoops I add to my bottles. Trust me, it makes a huge difference, the PR's don't lie. Now on to reality, and lowering the sarcasm dial... these cages are nice, have a great look and do the job. My two cages are a little tight for my liking, and actually pinch/deform my bottles; it reminds me of Lennie holding the rabbits in Of Mice And Men... if you never read the book, he kills him with his death grip. Yes I would buy them again, even though they are a bit snug.

Secure and light

Familiarity:

Awesome bottle cages. They're very secure, and my bottles have never come out even while riding on dirt or over potholes or bumpy roads. This was a problem with my previous cages (Elite Custom Race). It fits well for all types of bottles, including Camelbak Podium. It's easy to get the bottles in and out while riding. On top of that, they are light, look great and I got them on sale! What else could I ask for?

Bought even though I think it's crazy to spend so much for a carbon fiber bottle holder. Extremely strong grip on my Camelbak Podium bottle.

Everything they are cracked up to be

Familiarity:

Yes, this is just a bottle cage, but anyone who spends any time riding on less than good (ahem, Texas...) chip-seal roads knows that losing a bottle is more than a little inconvenient. I am thoroughly impressed with these rather bling bottle cages. Sure, they're a luxury item, but really no more expensive than other shiny carbon bottle holders, and they are SOLIDLY built. As hyped, they will hold a bottle through pretty much any situation. Highly recommended if you want some bling and don't want to lose bottles.

Very secure and beautiful looking

Familiarity:

Got these on sale and would have paid more. Very impressed on how well they hold the water bottle, even on very rough roads. I usually use the larger water bottles and have not had a problem with them falling out. Yet the cage is not so tight that one has to struggle to get the bottle out. From my other carbon water bottle cage experiences (Bontrager, Giant, Ritchey, Arundel), these are the best experience for me so far.

Best cages money can buy!

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I have used just about every high end, carbon bottle cage out there; and every time I try something new, I always come back to the Mandibles. They are incredibly light, hold bottles very tightly, but also allow for easy entry and release. I would say the best of all worlds, and I have never broken a single one, and have had these on 6 different bikes.

What's the difference between "Glossy" and "Oil Slick"?

Glossy will show the carbon weave Oil slick will not, it will just be solid black

Do you offer a rear mount in this cage of a similar cage. My tri bike has an adamo saddle.

they offer a triclamp kit that attaches to seatpost and then you attach this or any arundel cage to the triclamp.
