The Arundel Mandible Carbon Bottle Cage may seem a little over the top, but only to those who watch more TV than ride their bike. You don’t have to ride 5 hours a day to qualify to buy a Mandible cage, but it’s designed for those who do. Arundel’s newest cage couldn’t be just another fanciful design with a bunch of logos and a crazy, nonsensical name created for the sole purpose of adding another sku to the catalogue. The Mandible (strong but light, like an ant’s jaw) had to work, and work better than anything else available. Holding onto a bottle is pretty important in water bottle cage design and the Mandible does it well. The sexy curves belie the inherent strength of the Mandible. How can anything so seemingly fragile be so strong, you ask? Because the shape of the arms allows for a smaller cross section, but provides 40% more bottle grabbing power than other cages; more strength, smaller package. It’s tough enough for any type of use, including mountain bike, triathlon style brackets, and cobble-esque road riding. The Mandible can handle whatever you have in mind, be it mountain bike racing, triathlon bracket use, or attaching it to your armchair for a TDF watching marathon.
