I was wondering if anyone is using these bottle cages. They claim 15gr. How well do they hold bottles?

At 60 Euro a piece, I hope they not only hold your bottle, but also keep it refridgerated...

I buy 16gram (claimed) Bontrager knockoffs for $11 from Aliexpress. They work just fine, and weigh 15-17 grams. I spray-paint them black, so that adds a tiny bit of weight.

I didn't have the same luck with those.. they really loosen up quickly.. the real ones are much nicer but expensive.

Just wondering if anyone are using them. Not really interested in knockoffs since I have super record bottle cage at the moment.

We should be getting those on our next shipment but I worry about something with these. The resemble to previous Sior model or the old New Ultimate....they hold the bottle very well but they are a PITA to put the bottle back or pull it since the band around the bottle is closed (doesn't expand or is cut like the new Sior MIO).....if you have insulated bottles like polar or Camelbak even worst......but lets see when they get in.
