What are your experiences, and which bottle cage do you think is the best for mtb.
I dont mind if they are carbon, titanium, aluminium or Stainless steel I just want a cage that wont throw bottles.

Price is not a concern, but function/performance is no 1 followed by weight.

^^^^King Cage

or the trusty Cateye BC100.

A fair price gap, but they're the only two I'd use.

Yes King Cage Ti get my vote aswell. I have shown some photos of mine on this thread.

Whilst carbon maybe lighter King Kage grip the bottle really tight, don't mark the bottle and don't wear out.

I like the Elite Ciussi Inox. It is on my bikes since 1999 and never failed!!

Julien Absalon and others pro have this on their bikes.

Not so light (46 Gr.) but vey good.

King ti cages have variable weigh though. I guess some are as low as 24g, mine weighs 35g.
I can always sand a little bit though :)
It's a nice cage!

Pfff I've seen a Ti king cage fail in it's first year of use, they are not that light either. I say gimmick. Despite every fibre of my being disliking their bikes, Specialized rib cage gets my vote.

For Nicola and others using Elite Ciussi Inox... take off the red buttons, save few grams and the cage looks better

Bontrager carbon xxx lite gets my vote! Beautiful, light (27grams) and no single bottle lost in one year of competition.

How's the Iris Cage for XC racing, it holds the bottle strong enough?
It looks quite cool...

I guess everyone has different experiences. I had a couple of Specialized Rib Cages - first one dropped the bottle three times in 5 minutes on the first ride and I resorted to carrying it in my back pocket and ditched the cage when I got home. The second wasn't much better.

If you want cheap, relatively light and holds a bottle I can't go past the Cateye BC100, damn ugly though.

+ 1 for Cateye BC100
Never dropped a bottle (even doing DH trails on my XC race bike!)
