Stepping up the grip on side access cages, the Sideburn 8 provides an impressive 8 lbs of grip around bottles. Most frame cages tested require 3 to 4 lbs of force to pull your bottle out and this is simply not enough grip when tackling uneven trails and obstacles. The carbon fiber beats any plastic cage so you can grab your bottle with ease and know your bottle will still be there when you need it the most.
Pair the cage with any of the Dawn to Dusk bottles and achieve an additional 2-3 lbs of grip thanks to their deep neck grooves. 33 grams.
Pro Tip: When mounting the Sideburn 8 on seat tubes, make sure you select the access that is opposite of your dominant hand. If you grab bottles from your right hand, pick left side access.
