Description

You have carbon in your soles, your handlebars, maybe even your bike frame—now add some to your water bottle holder. The super lightweight Blackburn Camber CF Cage features a flared mouth to make sliding in your water bottle a bit easier, so you can stay focused on the road ahead. Side ribs hold your bottle in place, and a bottom cradle adds support and strength at a spot where carbon cages tend to fail.

Strong

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I can get my bottles in and out pretty easily and they secure my bottles. I am impressed with how strong these are, but very light, too. Plus they look good and matches my color scheme. I went through a few cages and now these have found a permanent home on my ride. Also, it was great that I caught them on sale, too.

As good as they get

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These Blackburn cages are some of the best out there. They last forever and can take a beating. I love that they are well made and affordable -- I have used carbon cages that cost twice as much but that don't hold my bottles as well. I consistently recommend these. I also like that they come in colors that match my bike, since most cages come in boring carbon black. These are a great investment.

The matte white turned yellowish

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'm not sure if I did something to cause this, but the matte white cage I had on my bike for 2-3 months turned yellowish. I tried cleaning it, but it still bothered me. I've switched to matte black and they look much better. Regardless of the color issue, the cage works really well (easy to get bottle in and out, holds well over bumps/vibrations), so I can't take off more than one star.

just a (really good!) bottle cage

    Had no idea how much more i would like these carbon cages better than my old aluminum version. easier to get bottle in/out, flex nice, hold bottle great. far more impressed than i thought i would be.

    Works well

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have used these cages for 2 years and have never had a bottle eject. I use large bottles 24 and 25 Polar and Camelbak bottles. They look cool but yes they are expensive.

    Not good for rough pavement

      I live and ride in Sonoma County, CA. I got these cages because they're super light weight and look cool. But it's not cool when water bottles fly out of them when hitting rough road, and this is what they did -- three times in one ride, and again multiple times on another ride. I'm lucky I, my bike, nor another rider were not injured as a result. I wouldn't trust any cage that doesn't wrap around the entire face of the bottle on rough roads. Maybe they'd be OK for use with tiny little 16 oz bottles, but the rides I do require 24 oz or larger bottles.

      I have these and also ride larger 24 oz. bottles on sloppy horrible Central PA roads... never had one even come out of position... let alone fall out. Perhaps you got a defective one?!? I'd give mine 5 stars.

      I'm glad yours have worked well for you. I think what it is is that the roads where I ride are a special kind of horrible. I've been on rides around here where bottles have been ejected from other brands of cages too. I bought another pair -- Elite Cannibal -- and have not had any problems.

      Oh, and it's on descents that it happens. Maybe you all who don't have problems with these are riding mostly on flat roads?

      Awesome H20 bottle cage!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I've used this on my mt bike for a couple months now and it holds my water bottle in place with no problem, not to mention it looks awesome and matches my carbon bike. I ride 2-3 times a week on various trails with lots of bumps, yet no ejection yet. The only negative thing I can say is the price, but again, you do have the option of getting something at $13.99....

      Great Cages - Results May Vary

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Not sure what is up with people losing bottles. I have used these for years on various road, cross, and mountain bikes with no issue. For example, I used these cages for racing the Tahoe Trail 100k on a hard tail 29er, and no bottles were lost that day.



      I suspect bottle ejection is related to the brand of bottles used, since bottle diameter can very significantly between brands. I use Clean water bottles.

      Not Strong Enough

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      It's nice & light, but with a 24 oz bottle filled it doesn't have enough holding power. I've used it as a BTA & on the saddle of a Tri bike and in both positions it fired bottles out much to my dismay. On a normal road bike application it's probably fine, but not in tricky locations.

      Works well with good looks

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This cage is lightweight, stylish, and functional. It does a good job holding my bottles without accidently falling out of the cage. The colors mixed with carbon weave match any carbon frame really well also.

        Blackburn Camber CF Cage.

          Great cages with a lot of color options to match up your bike. These are light and do the job well. Your $$$$$ bike deserves these.

          Note: We do a team ride every weds that passes us over a 1.5 mile stretch of dirt road. On our team ride it is one of the places we go hard. I have yet to ever lose a bottle on this section, or anywhere else for that matter.

          Get something else... they're dangerous.

            I've never written a review before... but I had to for these. I've had these cages for 2 months / 3,000 miles. I've lost bottles repeatedly, and during races... they're dangerous. I was out for a chill, solo ride last week and went over a SMALL bump, and a bottle came out and went into my rear wheel. I almost went over the handlebars, and instead ruined my Ksyrium SL wheel (rim got bent as bottle was smushed between rim & chainstay.

            I genuinely think these are dangerous. Learn from my mistakes: loose bottles are a hazard to you and the people around you. Don't get these.

            Anyway, they're beautiful but they just don't work. That being said, RealCyclist has been GREAT helping me to get these replaced.
