Eight pounds of grip force.
A frame cage has never been known to offer easier access to your bottle and a secure grip than the Dawn To Dusk Kaptive 8 Bottle Cage. Ever lose a bottle from your frame and wonder what you are doing wrong? It's not you; it's your cage. Most frame cages we have tested require 3 to 4 lbs of force to pull your bottle out and this is simply not enough grip when you are tackling uneven trails and obstacles.
Thanks to the Kaptive 8's 6 wide arms, 8 lbs of force is required to pull your bottle out - not too much to be difficult to take a bottle out, but just enough to secure bottle so you can ride on and enjoy the trails, knowing when you want a drink -- you can take one!
A reliable cage is a must when out on the trails, but so is easy access. The Kaptive 8's primary feature, the semi-side pull access, means you can have your side access cage with the confidence of knowing your bottle will be there when you need it, requiring 8 lbs of force to remove bottle. Most frame cages tested require 3 to 4 lbs of force to pull a bottle out and this is simply not enough grip when tackling uneven trails and obstacles.
