The XLAB Chimp Cage is ideal for TT and Triathlon frames where space is at a premium, the 30 degree cut out makes access to your bottles much easier.
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 CAGE and in extra stiff carbon.
The 6 arm design and graphics match the GORILLA CAGE 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 is a family owned and run company based in northern San Diego County, California. We moved to the USA from the UK in 1980 to follow a great high-tech job opportunity. Candice, one of the founder’s daughters is the C.O.O. and Marketing Director of XLAB. XLAB started the company in 1993 while they also ran a large triathlon and road store in Encinitas called NYTRO that was sold in 2007. San Diego is not only regarded as the Mecca of triathlon, but triathlon also started there in Mission Bay. Candice still trains for her triathlons in Mission Bay and they actually live on the famed Pro training route through Del Dios Highway and Lake Hodges. XLAB could not be any more centred in triathlon than right here in San Diego. XLAb has provided some major innovations in hydration, nutrition and repair storage on bicycles over the past 20 years. They continue to advance their market area with cross breeding ideas at the centre of their creativity and design.
