I am using two arundel mandibel cages right now (about 32grams each) and I am wondering if I have any lighter options for cages while still keeping the bottles secure. Any suggestions?

You've got possibly the best cages available right now. Any change for weights sake is a downgrade IMO.

Speedplay nano grams are great cages at about 18g ea. Very secure even on gravel roads.

suprisingly Token makes a good bottle cage thats fairly light, 26 grams; it also holds bottles pretty well.

King Ti cages are awesome and last a lifetime.

Any Arundel cage is top of the list.

I would just stick with your arundels. Losing a bottle mid race with no feeds for miles makes for a miserable race.

I have had bottles jumping out when I hit a pothole on training rides, two different types of holder.

I now use a bit of electrical tape to stop the holder opening too far.

Not very elegant, but seems to work.

If yours are half as secure as mine, stick with the Arundel Mandibles. I'm so ####ing sick of people trying to kill me with their ejected water bottles.

I've been using 2 topeak carbon cages for the better part of a year and a half and zero problems whatsoever. 16g each.

My Smud Carbon MTB version weigh 9 grams, never lost a bottle. Road version are 5 grams.
They look great, 1 year warranty and are fairly cheap but only if you don't mind having to use conical bottles.

Generic carbons @ 16g each, a pair for $30 shipped. Never lost a bottle, road or mountain.

I have them and have been disappointed by their poor ability to hold the bottles in place while descending on less than perfect roads..

i've got the speedplay ones as well, not had any problems on rough roads, in fact the bottles even stayed put in a crash when a car pulled across me

having said that, i find i can only use the supplied bottles with them, the cages are very stiff - bottles that are only slightly larger are too tight, those slightly smaller are too loose

I haven't been using the supplied bottles. Maybe that's why..

i just got two of the new BTP 6.5gm ( actually about 9gms ) & i doubt i'll lose a bottle from them
reassuringly expensive !

i had arundels on before & if i was still racing would prob leave them on for insurance purposes

I have had the minimalistic Tune Wasserträger (w. tune bottles), Speedplay Nanogram (w. speedplay bottles) and now Arundel Mandible. I can only say that the best of those 3 are the arundel.
