Arundel Chrono TT bottle and cage

BikeRadar verdict

60.0 out of 5 stars

"A great frame-mounted aero drink solution, but a bit pricey considering the competition"

Friday, June 1, 2012 11.00am By

This aero bottle and cage is a simple solution for those not wanting to mount round bottles on their seat tube or down tube. The full carbon cage has four bolt holes to allow multiple mounting positions, and the contoured 568ml bottle snaps positively into the cage and stayed put during test rides. 

The raised Arundel logo gives a good grip, but we can’t say we’ve ever longed for grippier bottles, and this could sacrifice some slipperiness against the air. The plastic stopper isn’t as kind on the teeth as rubber types but is graduated for two levels of flow and is a cinch to drink from when fully open. 

The only real downside is that, at £35 more than Specialized’s non-carbon caged Virtue bottle, the price is quite steep.
