One weird trick for quick weight loss.
Cyclists looking to shed grams from their ride usually start with the frame, wheels, and drivetrain while overlooking the water bottle cages. By offering a claimed weight savings of between 11 and 17 grams compared to steel and alloy cages, respectively, the Blackburn Camber UD Carbon Cage is an easy way to drop as many grams as your typical $500 component upgrade. The cage is also made from unidirectional fibers, so it matches the raw aesthetic of your lightweight carbon frame and Italian crankset.
While the Camber does look good, cages are ultimately about function as opposed to being seen. The flared opening means you don't have to see the Camber Cage in order to replace your bottle. It guides the bottle home so you can keep your eyes on your own homeward journey, and the rib cage design secures the bottle once it's there, so you don't have to worry about jettisoning it while indulging in every cyclist's favorite pastime of miraculously finding all the potholes in the road.
