SportsFanTommy My favorite bottle cages. Put on all my bikes.
Bikey Bloke Great bottle cage. I've got a few of them on other bikes. Look good, light, strong, fits all bottles. Tried others and none are as good.
Sad Fred. Best cage I've used. Work great with elite bottles. Nuff said.
Jordan I would say these cages are similar to the supercaz mid range cages in quality, but look great and function as the aforementioned. It's a cage, not exactly something you should worry about. It'll fit most med / med-lrg bottles snugly, but I can't speak for the super big bottles some roadies are using these days.
Mr McCrossan Bottles fit extremely snug. Last piece of kit (for now) to finish off my new bike colour scheme. Excellent priced and delivery to Ireland in a couple of days.
george Well made bottle cages - perfect colour to match my bike. Hold bottle securely yet it is easy to remove whilst cycling.
Mr Galbraith An iconic bottle cage, it's easy to replace a bottle without looking down with this model.
Stephen I've used Elite bottle cages for years, these do not disappoint. Hold the bottle nice and tight. Looks great!
Richard Great cages, very grippy. Takes a few rides to break the stretchy bit in but after that they work great.
Rich Everything you could want from a bottle cage at a great price.
Kenneth Great bargain . . . and it provides a secure grip for my water bottle . . . and it is still very light.
Mr Tutty It holds a bottle really well.
martin Great cage, grips the bottle but you don`t have to wrestle the bottle back out like some other cages. Great service from Merlin, can always be relied on
Mr Guillen Nice bootle cages. Lightweight and good looking!
Mr Morillo Have this cage in my frame, just added one in saddle for long rides. good quality and grip.
Mr Birkin My favourite design of cage, easy to get bottle in and out at various angles. Use these on mtb, gravel and road bike with no problems
Humanosaurus My favorite bottle cages. I have them on all of our bikes. Road, Triathlon and MTB, they work great. Reasonable weight, reasonable price, and very durable. I've been using them for years, and never had one fail. Bottles stay put, but are easy to insert and remove.
Matt Great bottle cage for XC and trail bikes. No bottle drops with these.
Mr Brantman Light weight cage great for gravel bike racing because it secures your bottles on rough roads. Another design feature or note is the multiple mounting holes which gives a range of positions great for bikes with smaller triangles. Plus the cage is low cost making it the best price-value bottle cage on the market.
Mr Kirkup Extremely light cage and looks good on the bike
Jasmine Very stiff to get in and out, not going to loose your bottles in a race.
Mr Grego It holds strong the bottles on every type of road.
Arne What can I say about a bottle cage... it holds my bottles well. You can get loads of colours, so you can colour-coordinate to your heart's content.
Mr Duval Very sturdy and strong. Easy to use great product and great price.
Tim Simple and cheap, used these on new bike as these have lasted very well on previous bike.
Mr Molnar I use it with Elite Ombra bottles, they are fit very snugly, really hard to put them in. Not as light as I expected (my previous bottle cage half of this weight). The finish is very nice. I ordered the red one.
Peer Great product... Elite bottle is easy to get in and out of this cage... overall, very satisfied
Mr Breecher Great cage. Hold bottles really well. Can't beat these for under $10.
Mr Colas Sturdy bottle cages and look good in matte black
Mr Stacey Mix of gloss and matt looks sweet on my bike. Grips the bottle well. Easy to remove bottle, goes back in snug and stays there.
Mr christie Easy to get bottles out of the cage but found them quite difficult to get back in fully, or should I say that sometimes it's hard to tell whether the bottle is fully home unless you physically look down. Having said that I have two of them fitted on my gravel bike which is used on forestry roads and single track and I haven't lost a bottle yet.
Andy in MK Top product, holds bidon securely. Excellent price and service as usual
Arne Does what it says on the tin. I use these for all my bikes, including during CycloCross races. Sturdy, secures the bottles well without being so tight that it is difficult to get at your bottles quickly.
RH Bought a pair of these cages for my new bike as I wanted plain black or grey. They are cheap and do the job they are supposed to do. Hold the bottle tightly, they ain`t going anywhere.
JJ Simple, lightweight and affordable bottle cage that works!
Jim Secure water bottle and very durable
Jim I have a few of these and find them very durable and secure.
Scotty Great looking and solid cages but a bit of a tight fit with Camelbak podium bottles.
Ty Excellent, just a bit on the heavy side, but they hold my large bottles well
JH Great cage. Nice, definitive lock of bottle.
Duane Comins Not 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 Owen Original and best bottle holder
Mr Randall Easy to fit, sturdy and strong whilst holding the bottle securely. Great purchase.
Ian Have 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.
Andrew If 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.

David Looks good, very tight fit for Camelbak Podium though.

Mr britton Hard wearing. Holds bottle snug. Light.

CoBro These 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
Harris Great 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."
edwards The bottle cages are excellent. They are of good quality and the colur scheme matches my bike perfectly
Mr. Edens These were bought for my winter Bianchi whip and they're perfect! Firm hold that won't allow any bottles flying off your bicycle :-)
SW Much 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 NAVARRO Perfectly matched my old bottle cage installed. Flexible but tight enough to hold the water bottle
Mr ahmed Does the job. Light. Hold 500/750 ml bottles no problem. Stiff at first then easier to place and remove bottle
Mr spatz Needed another one of these for my 2017 season machine. Used it for 2016 season...No launched bottles so I will continue.
Garcia I 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 Fogerty Nice cage that gets a very secure grip of your bidon.
Rex H. Australia Easy to mount. Replaced my trad cages that were looking tired. Good value upgrade & the design makes for easy extraction/insertion on the go
Casson Fantastic 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 Özcan Great Cage, fits with the Merlins tool box and clear water bottle.
Mr Heyer I'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.

Plus, Merlin customer service is outstanding!
LJ Good value Bottle cage have two now and had no issues reasonably light as well.
Jay Light and very stiff. Depending on your water bottle, it can be easily to put bottle in and take out. Smooth finish.
Mr Hey Can't complain about these - they do they job, and they don't weigh a lot (and they look nice!)
Mr Wong This 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 =)

Mr Bowman Easy 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 White I 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).
