The Chicane is the top offering from Blackburn. Constructed of stainless steel, the cage will not rust of mark up your bottles. Clever bending and shaping of the tubes holds your bottles nice and tight.
These hold a variety of bottles that I own (including Polar and Camelback) like a wet bar of soap. They only make contact with the bottle at the bottom. Bad manufacturing tolerances? Pushing the top crossbar in doesn't work, they're just too narrow at the bottom. The sloping top tube on my bike stops the bottle before it ejects onto the road. One star for being stainless.
Cons: Doesn't hold
Holds the bottle well, super light (for metal) and looks sweet. Wont discolor your bottles either.
If you use camelbak podium bottles, this cage isnt the best fit. They just dont seem to cradle these bottles as completely as I expect.
I will buy more of these cages; I have used a bunch of different brands. Holds the bottle securely, easy to insert and remove the bottle, durable, and you do not look like all the rest of the hosers with black plastic cages. Will last forever if you never ride your bike; will last a very long time if you ride a bunch.
