The Elite Custom race bottle cage does exactly what it is supposed to do, keep your drink bottle safe and secure on your bike. For the people who like to match colours, there are plenty of colours to choose from. The cage is made from glass fiber reinforced polyamide which makes it durable and supple.
We never lost a bottle during the 6 months we have been testing the bottle cage, and this is on the bumpy roads of Ireland. The bottle cage weights 43g which is light, but there are lighter ones on the market. But price/weight ratio, this is a fantastic bottle cage.

The Elite Custom bottle cage arrived in September 2014. The first test we always carry out is a visual inspection, weight test and build quality check.
The Elite Custom race bottle cage weigt a very light 43g
Absolutely nothing negative to report on this bottle cage. The build quality is great.
Material: fiberglass reinforced polyamide with adjustable sticky elastomer rubber colours : 14 different types
The Elite Custom Race bottle cage has been used by more champions over the last decade than any other bottle cage. The first thing you notice is it's light weight. The bottle only adds 43 g to your bike. Second thing you notice is how good it grips your bottle in place.

The elastomer is adjustable pending which bottle is being used and it also absorbs shocks from the road. Thanks to this, we never lost a single bottle.
