Review: Fabric Cageless System

Review: Fabric Cageless System

Time used 18 months  RRP £9.99

Pros

  • Super light
  • Sleek looking

Cons

  • Limited colours
  • Not ideal for MTB’s or CX bikes (Added 8/11/17)

Fabric has been around for a while now producing nifty cycling paraphernalia, from saddles to tools to bar tape and grips but this relatively new item is one of my favourites.

The Fabric Cageless System is a revolutionary system that does away completely with the ‘unsightly’ cage normally associated with standard water bottles, saving weight and bringing a neat feel to the down tube.

 

Fabric Cageless System

The ultra-lightweight studs weigh in at only 1.5g a pair, compared to a lightweight carbon cage weighting in 25g or a heavyweight aluminium cage weighing in at a massive 40g.

Each system comes complete with a bottle and two sets of studs, for those with more than one bike.

I think you would agree, at £9.99 this system is a great upgrade for any discerning cyclist.

Update 8/11/2017

I found the Fabric Cageless System isn’t ideal for mountain biking or on a cross bike. On the occasions, I used this product on my mountain bike and cyclocross bike the bottle came loose and bounced out of the studs.

Thanks for reading
