It is stamped from aluminium sheet, pressed into shape, anodized and partially coated in rubber. This is not just crucial to the design, it also provides extra grip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Oilychain Well made & thought out design
This appears a simple design, well made but a little intolerant of bottle diameters. I use it on a step through Moulton, as there are no points to snag my trouser leg when stepping over I now have stopped kicking over my bike when I get on without a bottle in the cage.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JKC74 Looks good, but that's it!
The cages look, but that's it!
My 5 year niece broke one of them, just trying to put a water bottle back into the cage!

Rated 1 out of 5 by JoeeoJ Nice looking, poor performing
I bought this along with a water bottle for short after work trips out. The cage is very light and strong enough to cope with this light duty task.
Unfortunately there is almost zero friction between the cage and the bottle. The bottle jumps about over every bump. Going down steep bumpy off road hills, the bottle just falls out.
I rectified with a piece of old inner tube and tie wrap.. Which now grips the bottle in place.
kinda spoils the look of my 'Carry over puddles, talk about and point at in the pub best bike'

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Cheap and nasty!
It's cheap. Cage bolts didn't sit flush to the cage so all my bottles get big scrapes up the side. Really have to push bottle in to get it past the bolts. Not good on a twitchy road bike one handed for a good few seconds. It snapped today at the bolt attahment point after all that heaving bottles in and out. Crap from day one. Avoid!!!!
