Strong and fast enough for the Competitive Racing Team.

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

The Best Bottle Cage Made

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

A foam core allows some flexibility, light weight, and the ability to mold the carbon into a very spindly looking design that holds up incredibly well.

I was dropping bottles before I had these. I will never drop another bottle again. I can turn my bike upside down and shake it and the bottles dont fall out. I will buy these for every single bike that I can find a matching style for (also awesome, you can get UD carbon or woven based on your frame aesthetic).

COOL STUFF

    Great looking cage that holds my bottles well. Any cage is light, buy it cause it does it's job and looks great doing it.

    It just works

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    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.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    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: I've put it through the wringer

    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

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    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.

    Everything they are cracked up to be

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Yes, this is just a bottle cage, but anyone who spends any time riding on less than good (ahem, Texas...) chip-seal roads knows that losing a bottle is more than a little inconvenient. I am thoroughly impressed with these rather bling bottle cages. Sure, they're a luxury item, but really no more expensive than other shiny carbon bottle holders, and they are SOLIDLY built. As hyped, they will hold a bottle through pretty much any situation.

    Highly recommended if you want some bling and don't want to lose bottles.

    Very secure and beautiful looking

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Got these on sale and would have paid more. Very impressed on how well they hold the water bottle, even on very rough roads. I usually use the larger water bottles and have not had a problem with them falling out. Yet the cage is not so tight that one has to struggle to get the bottle out. From my other carbon water bottle cage experiences (Bontrager, Giant, Ritchey, Arundel), these are the best experience for me so far.

    Best cages money can buy!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have used just about every high end, carbon bottle cage out there; and every time I try something new, I always come back to the Mandibles.

    They are incredibly light, hold bottles very tightly, but also allow for easy entry and release. I would say the best of all worlds, and I have never broken a single one, and have had these on 6 different bikes.

    Water bottles love to be held

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Holds your water bottle tight even through the toughest of times and light as a feather.

    Beautiful and secure.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    A slim, yet powerful cage that holds my bottles securely, but doesn't make me fight to get them out. Beautiful industrial design is a plus.

    They're Great

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Even the biggest pothole won't jar the bottles loose. They cages look great and hold the bottles tight. The quality is second to none.

    Impressive cages

      When I built up a new bike I had new Zipp cages from a previous purchase for the new steed. Unfortunately, these new Zipps didn't perform as well as the old ones and I began to have bottles launch frequently. Since this can pose a safety issue I began the search for new ones. The Mandible received high marks and with the bonus free bar tape I pulled the trigger. I'm very impressed with the design, style and function and they work! Bottles are snug and I'm 100% confident I will never lose another bottle again. These are excellent.

      the best

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      once you use one of these cages you'll never buy another kind.



      No vibration, no dropped bottles. perfect.

      Exceptional

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have used xlab Gorilla cages for years and then moved on to the zipp cages. I would loose bottles in the zipp cages and the xlab Gorilla cage was always pretty tight. This is the happy medium, super light, never loose a bottle, and easy access. They also appear to be very well made. I have had these on for two years and abused the heck out of them, everything is rock solid. I know 60 bucks is a lot for a cage but they will last and are light weight as well.

      You'll never eject another bottle

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I've used these cages for several years and they do everything they ought to. They securely hold bottles, it's easy to put in or pull out a bottle, they're plenty light, and they've proven to be quite durable across several seasons. As a bonus, they look great too. I wouldn't be willing to try another cage.

      Best Cages around

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      If the Arundel Mandible can handle a year of serious MTB racing, it can handle anything. No dropped bottles...Ever!

      Ridiculous but perfect

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Yes, it's absurdly expensive. No, it doesn't need to be carbon fiber. Yes, the Tao Tacx will cost 80% less and weigh only 26 grams more for 2 cages. But if you spent a certain amount on your carbon fiber frame, you'll getting these. They are exceptionally well designed--they work wonderfully and hold up well. They do not get all scratched up or look grimy if you take care of them. They clean up well. They look amazing, the design is elegant, minimal and timeless. There are many finishes to match what you have. If you went all-in on your bike, just do this.
