i got a couple to replace previous cages which tended to let bottles move when on rough road surface or speed bumps

the tune cages are excellent, i have not had a bottle move even a few mm in the cage

inserting/removing bottles is ok, i use my old bottles (which have a conical base like the tune ones) and they are fine

I'm very happy with them, but be aware that it might not work with camelback bottles. I use elites and no problem with those.

I have an AX Lightness on each of my bikes and they are excellent. Light, good grip, look nicer than the Lightweight ones IMO.

Here are a few old threads on this topic:

The Tune Wassertrager 2.0 bottlecages really match my Canyon Ultimate CF SLX in stealthy look. Wassertrager 2.0 keeps the bottels secure, even without the rubber grippers. Camelback podium and Zefal bottles don't fit ...

Great stuff, thanks for replies and info.

@Reknop. It's for my 2016 SLX and I've currently running podium's so thanks for info. I don't mind using the bottle that comes with it though if it's ok or will probably try and get a "stealth" look bottle :)

looks like I'm ordering a setup of Extralite Streeters at the same time.

Costly this cutting weight game isn't it :)

Elite, Assos, Tacx bottles fit pretty well.
