Meet The Ultra Durable Silca Sicuro Cerakote Titanium Bottle Cage

The Silca Sicuro Cerakote Titanium Bottle Cage is a masterpiece that holds your bottle firmly and is beautiful, strong and resistant to corrosion and abrasion.
With its Sicuro Titanium Bottle Cage, Silca already has an incredible product – a bottle cage that’s light, exhibits exceptional build quality, fits a multitude of frames and has the ability to securely clasp a bottle to keep it steady on harsh, bumpy ground, without scratching it or impairing its release and replacement. The new Silca Sicuro Cerakote Titanium Bottle Cage, though, with its new shape and Cerakote coating, is even better at handling daily punishment, whether on the road, gravel or trails.
Cerakote is a truly amazing material. It’s not a veneer like a paint finish, instead it’s a permanent layer applied to the titanium’s surface through a process involving time, chemicals and expertise. In short, it’s not something that any company can do.
The seamless, aerospace-grade 3-2.5 titanium tubing is already naturally corrosion resistant, so an extra protective layer makes it virtually indestructible. You needn’t worry about damage from scratching, acid rain or wear and tear anymore, especially since the bottle cage carries Silca’s Shield Warranty, which covers it for 25 years. That makes it both a great long-term investment and a sustainable choice for discerning cyclists, too.
It’s a particularly fine option for gravel or trail riding, where smatterings of stone dust are a fact of life. Now you can forget the pain of leaky bottles creating a gritty paste that forever scores your bottle cage.
The 30g frame of each Silca Sicuro Cerakote is hand-bent for consistent precision, and the new shape means that when the bolts are positioned to the extent of the slot – for example, where a bike has a particularly small frame – the stability of the cage remains uncompromised. Longer slotted eyelets also facilitate greater fore-aft adjustability of the cage, up to 21mm.
Handmade at Silca’s Indianapolis headquarters using custom manufacturing processes and a state-of-the-art laser welder that’s unique within the bicycle industry, this is a sleek black cage that will look just as beautiful season after season as it does coming out of the Silca factory.
