ELITE Custom Race Cage
REVIEW DATE: 30 Nov, 2009
RRP: $34.90

There are some things that the Italian's just always do better.  In the world of cycling one of these is the bottle cage. 

Italian Company ELITE have long been considered the benchmark by the competition and when the all new Custom Race cages turned up in the office it was lucky there were enough to go around!

Used by 12 of the 20 UCI Pro-Tour Teams the Custom Race has already done the hard yards this season in the toughest of real world test grounds, the Pro peloton.  A big factor in why top teams like Columbia, Cervelo and Caisse D Epargne use this model from Elite is the adjustable elastomer at the bottom of the wing shaped top portion.  This little piece of engineering magic delivers a custom fit to what ever cycling bottle is being used.

The Fibreglass composition of the Custom Race feels substantial, unlike the plethora of nasty Chinese carbon cages that have swept our market in recent seasons and eliminates all chances that you won't arrive back from your ride with the same number of bottles you left with.  I'm three months on in using mine and they're not coming off without a fight.

It true Italian fashion there are a myriad of color options to choose from (7 actually) giving that true custom look to any rig.

Check them out at a store near you.
