Fairwheel posted on their Facebook page about a new version of the Tune Wasserträger cage that will weigh 9g. Half the weight of the previous version, and I assume it's made of carbon.

Yay! By the looks of it no need for a conical drink bottle!

Nope. Fairwheel told me that it can take any bottle.

This boils down to, do they work well? Or will the bottle be launched out like a rocket from a small bump?

It doesn't look like there's a retention nub, so I'm guessing it'll be bottle dependent. I know the camelbak bottles are normally tighter fitting.

This is almost the same design as the specialized rib cage. If anything, they hold the bottles too tightly.
