The Enve bottle cage is the only one on offer from the brand, which is well known for its premium wheels and finishing kit.
Enve bottle cage design
Enve’s only bottle cage is minimalist in design and fully carbon, which the brand says was chosen for its durability and low weight.
The cage is only available in black, in keeping with the brand’s signature style.
Enve states that the cage’s low front profile allows for both side and vertical bottle entry, which, as a byproduct, allows for easy access to the frame mounting holes.
As such, the cage is quick to install and the holes themselves, as elongated ovals, provide a small level of adjustability on the frame.
The Enve bottle cage, as with most Enve products, has been finished to a very high standard. The carbon is smooth to the touch and the decals appear secure and durable.
The cage feels adequately stiff but not brittle, and is very light in hand.
Enve bottle cage performance
When tested, the Enve bottle cage was simple to use, with enough grip to hold bottles securely on uneven terrain despite the low front barrier.
The open side walls worked well for side-loading, and the range of possible entry angles meant bottle loading required little thought.
The cage weighed in at 20g, significantly lighter than its competitors.
It is worth noting that, though the cage is impressive in both quality and weight, it does come with a chunkier price tag than some others on the market, at ?70 for a single cage.
You have to really want the weight savings or the cachet of the Enve brand here – it’s hard to make a rational case for spending this much money on a bottle cage, however nice it is.
