  • Easy Access Without Grip Compromise

    A reliable cage is a must when out on the trails, but so is easy access. The KAPTIVE 8's primary feature, the semi-side pull access, means you can have your side access cage with the confidence of knowing your bottle will be there when you need it.

    Never Lose A Bottle

    A frame cage has never been known to offer easy access to your bottle and securely grip a bottle over variable terrain. Ever lose a bottle from your frame and wonder what you are doing wrong? It’s not you; it’s your cage. Most frame cages we have tested require 3 to 4 lbs of force to pull your bottle out and this is simply not enough grip when you are tackling uneven trails and obstacles. Thanks to the KAPTIVE 8's 6 wide arms, 8 lbs of force is required to pull your bottle out… not too much to be difficult to take a bottle out, but just enough to secure bottle so you can ride on and enjoy the trails, knowing when you want a drink – you can take one!

    Easy Access

    A cage that is easy to pull a bottle out of, but also helps you guide your bottle in? That’s right! With a 30-degree slope on either side of the cage – you have your choice of which side to pull from. Not only that, but the KAPTIVE 8 has funneled sides which help you guide the bottle back into its cage so you can get back to enjoying your ride. Keeping hydrated should never be difficult.

    Complete One-Handed Hydration System

    You’ve got your choice of side access, you won’t be losing bottles left & right, and you can keep your eyes on the trail instead of struggling to get a bottle back in – but there is more? When you pair the KAPTIVE 8 with Dawn to Dusk’s ICE FLOW and AQUA FLOW bottles, you get even more grip…like 2-3 lbs more grip! Couple those bottles with the DIRT MASK providing you complete dirt protection, so when you take a drink you get a blast of refreshing liquids. Leave the gritty, complicated hydration behind, the future is easy, clean refreshment.

    Behind The Design

    Most carbon cages are designed to be lightweight or match your bike’s looks, but our main priority was functionality, specifically easy access and secure grip. Experiencing bottle launching never results in a good ride as you are losing out on essential liquids and ultimately causing an obstacle in itself. There was a paramount need to design a solution to prevent this situation. The design would require plenty of surface area contact with the bottle, and the carbon fiber would have to be of the highest quality. We far exceeded our goal of an 8 lbs calibrated grip force, resulting in a design that truly qualifies for use in moderate level terrain.
