Description

Mandible Water Bottle Cage

The Arundel Mandible Water Bottle Cage holds your bottle with two slender arms that create a smaller cross section yet provide up to 40% more bottle-grabbing power than other cages. The Mandible is a design perfectionist's dream: more strength in a smaller package. Arundel offers their minimalist cage with minimalist graphics: No colored decals here.

You can use the Mandible for road, mountain, cross, or triathlon. Arundel knew that their new Mandible cage couldn't be just another fanciful design with a new logo and a crazy name created for the sole purpose of adding another item in their catalog. The Mandible had to work, and work better than anything else available. Not only does the cage design increase holding power, Arundel lightened the structure by adding a foam core to the carbon cage. Most cages simply cut out the center to save weight. Typically, this process exposes the mounting bolts and arm edges and makes it hard to slip a bottle in or out. The Mandible's smooth, three dimensional form leaves nothing for the bottom of a bottle to catch on when you pull it out.

The Arundel Mandible Water Bottle Cage is available in four colors -- Gloss Carbon, Matte Carbon, Oil Slick, and White Out.

  • Carbon fiber
  • Sleek design with minimal graphics

For the price I was expecting this to be American made or maybe German. There is a little "Made in China" sticker on the bottom of the tab that catches the bottom of the bottle. Good cage though. Well finished. Have not had any bottles launch or work past the tab. Cage is mounted on seat tube. Not sure if being on down tube would affect that.

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

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

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.

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

A firm hold

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.

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.

Great for the trail.

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?

Grip

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.
