XLAB Gorilla Bottle Cage
XLAB changed history by designing water bottle cages with specific features for the unique stresses of different mounting locations on the bike: frame, rear, and aerobar.
With 7 pounds of grip force, the Gorilla Cage is engineered to prevent water bottle ejection when mounted on a rear carrier. An inside flare and the access angle ease bottle entry.
- Designed for rear carriers
- 7 lbs grip force
To ensure the best possible fit, use a bottle that has a uniform groove all the way around that is uniform and fits tightly into the hook at the top of the cage. Bottles with shorter groves that do not fit properly into the hook (e.g., Camelback Podium) and bottles with grooves that are not uniform all the way around (e.g., Polar insulated bottles) are not recommended for use on rear carriers.
