Ultra-light, ultra-tough, and ultra-wallet-friendly. We'd be willing to bet that the Blackburn Slick Cage is the only thing on your bike that shares these three qualities.

Pretty darn solid for price

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is probably the best value cage there is. Period. It may flex a little but that honestly helps its longevity as it can withstand impact or a missed bottle placement better. Some have said that it looks a little cheap but I have a white cage and a black cage on a Ridley Fenix and it actually looks pretty clean. For those looking to save weight this is great as well as it weighs almost nothing and is a mere fraction of a carbon cage. I would consider stocking up on several of these and if one does have an issue then I can easily replace it.

Holds my waterbottle

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I put this on my mountain bike and its held up so far. My water bottle hasn't fallen out on any rides.

Not too shabby

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I gave this as a present for my father in law. He loved the sleek, look of the cage. It's light weight, fairly sturdy, but I'm curious to see how it holds up with wear and tear.

don't put it on your dogma F8

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are an adequate cage to get you by, they are light, but on the flimsy side. They aren't going to break on you, hey are just not as solid as a more expensive cage. It's the old saying you get what you pay for. I bought these as a back up set and use them on a cross bike, if I was more serious about cross I'd probably upgrade.

Super lightweight; holds bottles well

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

Your bottles won't fall out with these cages. They aren't the most stylish cages, and they certainly aren't going to impress your friends. But if you aren't too concerned about looking PRO, you'll still get the featherweight benefit that people pay tons more for carbon cages to get, and have money left over for gear that actually matters for performance.

These may not last as long as machined aluminum or carbon cages, but you can buy five of them for the price of one carbon cage, so you do the math.

Great value. Lots of colors to match your frame. No brainer.

Great cages

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I know it can be scary to buy something so cheap for our beautiful expensive bikes. But I have these cages is black and have used the same two cages for the past 3 years and have never had a problem. I've used them in every kind of road race there is. Plus, they are super light! You can barely find Carbon cages this light. Honestly, as long as they keep making this cage I will buy/recommend them.

light, but flimsy and weak

I bought two of these recently. The first broke after one ride. The other lasted 250 miles before it was so cracked and wobbly I couldn't trust it. Don't waste your money. I bought two Elite custom race cages and they are waaaaay better and I got them at a great price.
