Set your bottles free.

Arundel's Sideloader Water Bottle Cage is the simple answer to one of the great quandaries confronting cyclists with small frames: getting a bottle out of its cage. The aptly named Sideloader sets your bottles free by allowing for lateral ingress and egress, meaning you don't have to struggle against low clearance frames just to get a drink. The cage is also made of lightweight carbon fiber, preserving the natural weight advantages conferred by smaller framesets.

  • Side entry cage eliminates issues with low-clearance frames
  • Carbon construction is lightweight and also stiff for bottle security

Does not do the one thing it supposed to

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I bought this to use on my maintain bike. This side load water bottle holder doesn’t securely hold a water bottle; it ejects it on big hits. I have this mounted on the bottom of my top tube, so perhaps it doesn’t work in this orientation.

A must for my bike!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I recently got a Santa Cruz 5010 and my water bottle cages would not work due to frame design. I reached out to a Gearhead and they pointed me into the direction of this. They were not wrong. I will be using these cages on all mountain bikes from here on out! They hold tight on the local gnar and senders, and the best part is I can get my bottle in and out when I need it.

Perfect for your MTB

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got this to put on the downtube of my new MTB. Fits perfectly and allows to me carry a bottle and not have to wear a pack. I haven't had a bottle fall out as this cage really hangs onto it. Worth the extra money for sure.

Solid Cage

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I only have initial impressions but it does what it's intended to. Holds most size bottles really well and looks great while doing it.

Side load 'em if you got 'em

    If you need a side loader, want lightweight and are OK with carbon these do the trick. Many compact geometry frames can benefit from side loaders. The finish surprised me. I got the "oil slick" described as glossy on the mfgr's website...and they are glossy, kinda, but not all over. They're glossy on the inside and a kind of hybrid gloss/ matt on the outside.I don't really care anymore, you'll forget about it too after they're installed. But I wasn't satisfied when I first got them. Now I hardly notice. How do they work? They work fine.

    Impressive Retention

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Once I upgraded to a piggyback shock on my MTB, the side loader was a must. I was skeptical about retention when ordering but I've been using this cage racing enduro through the chunkiest, gnarliest, terrain you can imagine and sure enough, there my bottle sits for a cold sip at the bottom of the stage. Pulling the bottle is easy but returning takes a little practice since the cage holds the bottle so tight. If you've got a special bottle like I do, you can trust this cage to hold on to it forever.

    Low Profile

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    If you're running a bigger shock and are limited on space this is a great option. This was the only cage I found that would accommodate a water bottle for the HD4.

    Put your bottle in it

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Solid lightweight cage. It works well on my mountain bike, where the shock prevents me from using a traditional style bottle cage. It's very well made and can definitely take a beating.

    Expensive but so worth it

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Great for smaller frames or if you are running a frame bag. Holds bottles securely over the roughest terrain makes these cages worth every penny.

    Excellent Cage

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Very little to add to the other reviews. This cage is the business for full-suspension mountain bike frames. it weighs very little, and is strong and durable. Pull the bottle out sidways and throw it back in any way you please. the Sideloader will grab the bottle and hold it tight.

    easy access

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Arundel cages are my first choice in carbon cages. They will allows hold your bottle with the grip of King Kong and they look great also. The Sideloader and Othersideloaders are perfect for small frames or easy access on the mountain bike. I would not pick another carbon cage for any of my builds.

    Stylish and Functional

      Carbon fiber construction means this versatile cage is lightweight and stylish. My wife prefers to use her left hand to grab her bottle so she uses the Sideloader on top of the downtube. Her size small frame and suspension linkage would make most bottle cages feel cramped. Not so with the Sideloader. The bottle is easy to grab when she needs a drink and holds securely when she doesn't.

      All hail to the sideloader

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      The side loading cage is really awesome--so glad I came across it when I was looking at fitting my new bike. The reviews on this one were really encouraging so gave it a go and am really pleased I did. It just makes getting to that water bottle so much easier as well as returning it. I think you might also be able to fit in a larger water bottle with the side entry. Liked it so much that I got a sideloader for down tube.

      Does what it says

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Very good bottle cage easy in and out not the lightest cage but close. Much easier to get bottles in and out than standard cages great for smaller frames and odd shaped mountain bikes

      it's all the cage

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      First bottle cage I’ve used in 10+ years. Aesthetically, it disappears into my HD3’s frame, and is super accessible while on the move.

      You have any trouble losing bottles out of these? I've been spitting bottles out of cheaper plastic cages (Bontrager RL, mostly) and I'm looking to upgrade as much for security as for the tight clearances on my new carbon frame.

      Hi Jeff,
      Expect this cage to hold bottles over any terrain you ride on. This is one of the best cages out there for smaller frames or full-suspension frames with tight clearance for a bottle.

      Fantastic Bottle Cage

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Purchased both the left and right handed cages for my bike. I've had trouble in the past fitting bottles on my bike because the frame is just so small, but with these cages not only can I fit two bottles on, but I can fit two normal size bottles with zero issues. Would highly recommend this product. Great quality and a good value.

      Great Design

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Bought both left-and right-handed cages. Left-handed one goes on the seat tube & becomes right-handed. A great design and easy to use. I have a medium (55cm) frame and really like how effortlessly the bottles come out and how well the cages hold them in place. A good value when they are on sale.
