The SILCA Sicuro Carbon Cage, Now in Matte Black

The SILCA Sicuro Carbon Cage, Now in Matte Black

Better Bottle Retention, Accessory Mounting Options

Indianapolis IN - July 16– The SILCA Sicuro Carbon bottle cage is now available in a stealthy black on matte black colorway. First introduced in fall 2018, the Sicuro Carbon was developed through extensive testing in the lab and in the real world. 

The short story is that in typical SILCA fashion, engineers undertook to understand the forces at play in what causes bottles to eject, designing a cage more adept at retaining bottles on gravel, trails or rough roads, while simultaneously working to make it easy to pop in your bottles without having to look down and break concentration from your ride.

Sicuro Carbon cages include SILCA's Premium Titanium Mounting Bolts, each machined in a single operation on a Swiss Lathe. The low-profile flange head design of the bolt distributes load more effectively than common cap screws and button head bolts for increased rigidity and lower stress. Sicuro Carbon Bottle Cages feature the same elongated mounting slots as their Sicuro Ti cages; these slots allow 12mm of fore/aft adjustment to account for the variance in bottle boss location across different frame manufacturers. 

Lastly, the bottom of Sicuro Carbon bottle cages contain a unique accessory mounting platform for the SILCA CAPSULE.

SICURO Carbon Specs:

  • Unidirectional Omni-ply layup
  • Exceptional bottle retention
  • Extended adjustment mounting
  • Low profile 6-4 Titanium mounting bolts
  • 26 grams w/o bolts
  • MSRP $70
