At first glance it’s just another composite cage. How interesting can it be? But Tacx’s new Ciro uses their injection molded tech to mix materials and produce a light bottle cage that holds your bottle tight. It’s already World Tour proven, weighs less than some full carbon cages, and costs less than twenty bucks.
Tacx Ciro light, affordable carbon & glass fiber bottle cage
The made in the Netherlands, Tacx Ciro encases a glass fiber core within molded carbon to create a lightweight water bottle cage that still delivers reliable bottle clamping force. The minimalist design was developed together with pro riders including Rigoberto Uran & Niki Terpstra to pare down their previous Deva cage, which was already be found on a large swath of the pro peloton.
The resulting composite water bottle cage weighs just 29g and sells for a surprisingly cheap $19.99/17.99€. It comes in nine different finish combos, including an optional splash of color and gloss or matte finishes. Get one through your local bike shop or direct from Tacx.
