Stay hydrated.

Small bikes and compact frames of all sizes have long been troublesome with their difficulty in allowing you to pull a bottle from a water bottle cage. There are oftentimes such little space in between the top of the bottle and the bottom of the top tube that it's nearly impossible to get a bottle out of the cage (especially on the seat tube but also on the downtube) without forcing you to wrench it sideways from the cage and unintentionally almost ripping your cage off the frame in the process. The Arundel Sideloader Water Bottle Cage was designed specifically to address this. Rather than forcing you to pull (or attempt to pull) your bottle fully upward, its minimalist profile allows you to pull the bottle up just a bit, then to move it outward to prevent the top of the bottle from smacking the bottom of the top tube. And, truth be told, the cage has such a neatly sculpted shape that many folks choose the Sideloader for looks alone. It fits any size bottle -- tall or short. It's available in Matte Black, Oil Slick, and Gloss carbon with two different decal colors -- Red or Silver.

  • Side entry cage eliminates issues with low-clearance frames
  • Carbon construction is lightweight and also stiff for bottle security

Ridiculously Convenient

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I ride a small frame size (51cm on my current road bike) and with normal cages can't really fit anything larger than a 16oz bottle, and sometimes those are a tight fit. Having side access makes it way, way easier to stay hydrated on long rides here in the 90+ degree Ohio summer.

It's not that they're carbon...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

They hold bottles snug yet easy to get in and out of the sideloaders. On sale, a great purchase.

Great bottle cage

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Like most of us, I have a small quiver of bikes and as such, had a wide assortment of bottle cages - whatever was available and inexpensive at the time of the build up. Not sure why it never occurred to me, but "you get what you pay for" also applies to bottle cages. After having these on one of my bikes for a year, I have gradually replaced all of my cages with the side loader/other side loader combo. I ride a smallish frame and these allow easy access to the bottle even on the mtn bike where there is little room. Overall, a great product and well designed with improved ease of access and better water bottle retention.

Easy in, easy out

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The side loader makes it way easy to get bottles into and out of its cage even when totally gassed from hard efforts on the road bike, or when you need to hurry up and get a drink before the next rock garden on the mountain bike. Without the requirement to "thread the needle" with your water bottle, you can just grab it and pull in a natural motion to get your drink.

This cage is for your downtube if you pull the bottle right-handed. If you grab the bottle lefty, or want to pull rightward and need a cage to go vertically on your seat tube, you'll want the OtherSideloader.

Is that the matte black or oil slick? I have an L3 that I'm looking to match, and that looks like it matches your C1R quite nicely.

Its the matte black... It matches the bike perfectly.
They've had this one in stock for a while now but unfortunately I haven't been able to find the matching OtherSideloader for the downtube holder.

Great design

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Securely holds a standard water bottle.
The only solution (side load) that will work with my small frame aero road bike.

Nice bottle cage

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are great bottle cages. Light weight and sleek. The side loaders work well on mtn bike frames that tend to be tight in the big triangle area. Highly recommended

Wes, if I remember right, you have an Ibis Ripley as your personal bike. I have a medium frame Ripley w/X01 (awesome bike, by the way) and am considering one of these (I don't generally like wearing backpacks except for longer rides). Have you tried one of these on your bike and, if so, would you recommend it? Do you use one? Thanks!
