n my Sworks are two S-Works Carbon Rib Cage II bottlecages. When I take my bottles out of them they are so dirty.
It lookes like it's paint of de cages.
Is this normal?

Those are scotch marks from gigawatts being put through the bottom bracket.

You have two options

1: black bottles
2: squat less

I see them as small pictures, I believe it is just the carbon rubbing off on the bottles, happened to me on camelbak bottles with carbon cages. A good scrub with washing detergent and a brush across the bottles (in line with the scratches) works for me, but yes they keep getting the marks..

it could be material rubbing off the cages, though it seems very heavy marking for that

does it always happen? getting better or worse?

i use old spesh bottles in tune wasserträger 2.0 cages, they do not get marked like that

maybe you need new cages :)
