Quite often Triathlon framesets have smaller frame triangles and shorter head tubes in an effort to make the frames more aerodynamic. This results in having to pull the water bottle somewhat sideways in order to get it out of the bottle cage. Most current cages on the market make bottle extraction difficult.  The engineers at XLAB have a cage that grips very well over bumpy surfaces but also has a special cut off angle of 30 degrees which testing has proved is the optimum angle in Tri framesets. It is super quick to get the bottle out of the cage.
The cage features stiff bottom lip to support large bottles, stiff upper tab to retain bottles in the cage and slots in the back to provide vertical adjustment on the frame.
Made with the same high temperature and pressure process as the successful Gorilla rear cage and in extra stiff carbon.
The 6 arm design and graphics match the Gorilla so you can now have a consistent bottle cage design on your racing machine but with cages designed for each specific purpose. Use Gorilla Cage for rear hydration carriers.

    XLAB Chimp Cage

    The cage is light, strong, and has a strong grip. Make sure to use the screws and washers provided to ensure proper installation. There are some issues with too much grip during insertion and removal and especially after 3 hours riding (i.e. bottle rotation from the back). This could be caused by bottles expanding and the cages expecting a true fit. The strong grip may also leave marks on bottles and have paint, from the bottles, sticking to the cages.
