Just because something isn’t technically broken, doesn’t mean you can’t attempt to make it better. That’s what Abloc is doing with their new bottles. Their uniquely shaped design offer easier access to cages through using unique tapers. This is particularly handy with mountain bikes where cage access is limited by shocks or cables and with smaller frames where riders find it difficult to even fit a bottle in the first place. If you like to put bottles in your jersey pocket, the taper makes that easier too.
I gotta admit, this looks interesting and even though I’ve never had a problem with my bottles in King Cage Iris cages, I can see how this design would assist in many of the aforementioned scenarios.
