Elite Custom Race Resin Bottle Cage
No other bottle cage of the past decade has gathered as many ProTour victories, a true design classic.
- Revised graphics give a fresh contemporary look that will go with any bike, from a fast commuter to a full-on race weapon
- Reinforced fibreglass construction is durable and light
- Added rubber tensioner grips bottles tightly for peace of mind in sprints and on rough sections
- Unmatched variety of colours and graphics available
- Made with pride in Italy
Duane CominsNot the best out there, the black rubber piece on the end of the cage feels cheap and probably wont last long. But saying that offers a surprising amount of grip.
Mr OwenOriginal and best bottle holder
Mr RandallEasy to fit, sturdy and strong whilst holding the bottle securely. Great purchase.
IanHave used these for years. Can be a tight fit if used with Camelback bottles, but I like it that way. Nowt worse than loose bottles.
AndrewIf you want a great cage that holds well and in a variety of colors to match your ride, look no further than these. Carbon Schmarbon, who needs it when a plastic cage works so well.
DennisThe standard, just works and really can't be bothered to save a few grams for carbon cages.
Alvin SumagueCheap but significantly perform well
StigLook great and pefectly functional, easy in/ out and secure
AdamGreat bottle cage, lightweight, looks great, holds the bottle well. Highly recommended.
Mr JunqueiraSoft material, light and easy to slide the bottle.
ChrisThe cages that grip. There is nothing getting out of these. These cages could hold tools to the space shuttle.
Sgen03Great product, light weight and they hold really well
Andrew NguyenVery light and good quality. It fits well with my bike colour scheme.
WayneReally lightweight bottle cage - looks really good on the bike and easy to get your bottles out!
MikeGreat cages, does exactly what I need and they look great. Easy to put on and hold a Camelbak water bottle perfectly. Arrived quickly.
Michael M.Excellent cage. It's my fourth one. The matte/satin finish looks great and these cages stretch to hold your bottles tightly. I haven't lost a bottle yet with these cages. Recommended!
DavidLooks good, very tight fit for Camelbak Podium though.
Mr ChangFits my camelback bottle perfectly, nice and snug
TonyBought this to match another existing cage. What's not to like? Simple, classy and sporty product. Nice range of colours to choose from to ensure you get the right match.
Mr CarruthersGood value base level bottle cage. Holds bottle well and easy to replace bottle in cage
DennisNice. It is well fitted for my camelblak bottles.
Mr brittonHard wearing. Holds bottle snug. Light.
Mr KwiecienJust great bottle cage. It's light, made with style and keeps bottle in place even on most shaky roads.
Mr MorrisonAnother classic design by elite which only they seem able to pull off. Worlds bands match the go-faster stripes on my Basso frame and Sidi shoes too!
CoBroThese cages are awesome! They flex enough to fit any bottle I put in them, and the variety of colors make sure it'll match with whatever bike you have
HarrisGreat bottle cage in multiple colour options. Bought these as my bike has a really low seat post cage mount and these allow the bottle to sit higher preventing the bottle from bouncing in the down tube.
Nieves"Light weight attractive and a good price in a range of colors, allowing the tart in me to choose one to match the bike. It works well too. What more could you ask for."
edwardsThe bottle cages are excellent. They are of good quality and the colur scheme matches my bike perfectly
Mr. EdensThese were bought for my winter Bianchi whip and they're perfect! Firm hold that won't allow any bottles flying off your bicycle :-)
SWMuch better than other cages at the same price. I didn't realise how clunky and awkward my existing cage was until using this. Holds the bottle secure, does not rattle, yet easy to get the bottle in and out. Would buy again.
Mr NAVARROPerfectly matched my old bottle cage installed. Flexible but tight enough to hold the water bottle
Mr ahmedDoes the job. Light. Hold 500/750 ml bottles no problem. Stiff at first then easier to place and remove bottle
Mr spatzNeeded another one of these for my 2017 season machine. Used it for 2016 season...No launched bottles so I will continue.
GarciaI really really like this bottle cage it's no wonder that most pro cyclist use it. The only negative I don't like is that it's a little too tight on my water bottles so the rubber leaves some marks. I liked this water cage so much that I bought some more for my other bikes.
Mr FogertyNice cage that gets a very secure grip of your bidon.
Rex H. AustraliaEasy to mount. Replaced my trad cages that were looking tired. Good value upgrade & the design makes for easy extraction/insertion on the go
CassonFantastic bottle cage I have them on all my bikes. Brilliant service and price as ever from Merlin.
Paul S.Why get anything else, these cages are great!! Light, durable, fits any bottle tightly without any movement whatsoever, very easy to take in and out, I have these on both bikes and they have performed flawlessly. Thanks Merlin for the great service and value!!
Mr AvsarSturdy and looks good, holds the bottle tightly.
Mr ÖzcanGreat Cage, fits with the Merlins tool box and clear water bottle.
Mr HeyerI've tried several different brands and styles of cages; metal, carbon, polymers, etc and was always ejecting bottles on the rougher roads of Colorado. A friend turned me on to these and I have been problem free on the same routes and roads where I was losing bottles with lesser cages.
Tom SautherGreat price. Great product. Light, and fits my 24 oz bottles perfectly. No hassle insertion when moving.
Mr LieuFits Cambelbak 710ml just fine. Very secure - this takes some getting used to if coming form standard alu cages.
Mr RäsänenNice and tight bottle fit
KGGreat bottle holder, tried and tested
HattsSolid cages. Not the lightest but nice finish.
Mr JoThe quality is not top notch, but well worth the price you pay for.
RDemapAmazing water bottle cage! Protects my bike frame with the soft rubber backing. Bottle fits tight! Pushing the bottle in the first time took some breaking in but no rattles at all during my rides with no worries I might lose a bottle during sprints and on rough roads. Highly recommended. Plus, Merlin customer service is outstanding!
LJGood value Bottle cage have two now and had no issues reasonably light as well.
JayLight and very stiff. Depending on your water bottle, it can be easily to put bottle in and take out. Smooth finish.
Mr HeyCan't complain about these - they do they job, and they don't weigh a lot (and they look nice!)
Mr WongThis bottle cage is sleek, made with high quality material. My CamelBak podium Chill Bottle 21oz stayed in place after each and single ride. Totally worth the investment and its made in Italy =)
LeeBought to carry extra bottle. Nice tight grip on the bottle
Mr BowmanEasy to get plastic bottles in/out & holds the bottle securely. The ones I fitted a year ago still look brand new, despite a busy year. I prefer them to the carbon fibre ones on my other bike.
MR BZRLight weight, sturdy and comes in a variety of colors to match any bike. Great value product and looks great on any bike. Nothing to complain about with this bottle cage.
ZIt's hard to tell without looking if your bottle is securely in place for the first few times I used it.

SmithGreat cage, cheap, light and a firm grip.
J EdwardsThe cage is light, is adjustable with a mixture of slots and holes for mounting on the frame. Whilst it is a little grippy, it holds the bottle securely. I've tried it with 500ml and 800ml bottles and both fit fine.
Mr SantosGreat water bottle holder. Thought it was too tight when I tried it off the bike, but once fitted it works very well. Recommended.

Mr RidleyAn excellent bottle cage is all aspects. The Elite Custom Race is light, it comes in a wide variety of colour options and it is very secure... No more lost bidons by the side of the road!
Mr WhiteI bought two of these for a new bike build. They look good, with a decent choice of colours, and are lightweight (mine weighed in at 42g each). They grip all of my bottles firmly and bottles are easy to insert and remove from a good range of angles. I would definitely buy these again - I really don't see the point of spending any more for such a tiny weight saving. Note that these are supplied without mounting screws so you will need two per cage if they are missing from your frame (as mine were).
