Hoy Carbon Cages and Bottle review

Knight of the realm and 5x Olympic champion Sir Chris Hoy's bike brand 'Hoy' offers new bike accessories. We found out how well they perform.

Cycling Weekly Verdict

If you like the styling, have a small frame, or are a bit of weight weenie, the Hoy bottle cage could be the perfect product for you. However, we wouldn't suggest using them for Paris Roubaix. The Hoy bottles are attractive, but we were unconvinced by the valve.

Are you a massive fan of Sir Chris Hoy? perhaps you own a Hoy bike and would like matching accessories? The Chris Hoy bottle cage is an attractive super light, matte carbon fibre design. The striped styling on both the cage and bottle is a nod to the lines on a velodrome track. At 25g this cage certainly won't weigh you down - but your wallet will be £34.99 lighter too.
