Not Your Everyday Side Access Cage
Side access cages have all been about, well…access, but what about holding onto your bottles. There is no need to sacrifice a hold on your bottle so you can access your bottle – you can have the best of both worlds! The Sideburn 8 ‘s carbon design possesses a secure 8 lbs of retention force on bottles, so you can have your drink where you want, whenever you need one.
Details, details, details. The 5mm tall upper hook, in tandem with the thick bottom shelf, clutches onto bottles preventing launching. Pair the cage with any of the Dawn to Dusk bottles and achieve an additional 2-3 lbs of grip thanks to their deep neck grooves.
How Easy? So Easy!
The sleek cutout featured on the Sideburn 8 ‘s are deeper than many others on the market. This allows for effortless bottle access. Look closely and you will see funnel-edged arms that help guide your bottle back into its cage so you can keep your eyes on the path ahead. No more focusing on how to get your hydration while riding…go on and enjoy being in the great outdoors.
Tip: When mounting the Sideburn 8 on seat tubes, make sure you select the access that is opposite of your dominant hand. If you grab bottles from your right hand, pick left side access.
The Sideburn 8 is optimized (but not limited) to the following frame locations.
PART OF DAWN TO DUSK’S CAGE ECOSYSTEM
The Sideburn 8 is a component of a comprehensive system where the right cage, in the right place, and the right type of terrain come together and revolutionize the way riders carry hydration, prevent dehydration, and allow athletes to explore longer. While most traditional frame cages are stand-alone, do-it-all products, the Cage Ecosystem is a network of cages synergized to withstand the forces that cause bottles to launch. Introducing Dawn To Dusk’s Cage Ecosystem. See How The Cage Ecosystem Works
Selecting a cage over the past century has typically been based on weight, color, style and price. But as more riders move off-road, the requirements change to become bottle retention, ease of bottle access, and then weight, color, style and price.
We wanted to design the ultimate side access cage. Using matched high pressure, high temperature molds and high strength carbon fiber matrix, we were able to create a cage that grips the bottle so well that it takes an 3.6 kg (8 lbs) pull to extract the bottle. Every curve and thickness of the design has been optimized to ensure the cage retains the bottle over tough terrain. Tested and proven on the frame and attached to round seatposts using the Bear Hug Mount.
