We love the price, the slender design and the access it allows but were still left with a couple of niggles and so docked the Iris a couple of points.
Not the most secure
The clever upside-down design of the Iris means that bottle access on smaller frames is much improved with the only drawback being that the bottle can need a bit of a waggle to release from the cage’s tenacious grip.
That said, with just over 1,000 miles’ use, the seat tube-mounted cage managed to release the bottle twice. While the poor road surface didn’t help, we’d say the fact that there is no upper ‘latch’ certainly played a part.
We were also a little annoyed that the packaging stated that it wouldn’t mark the bottle and while not anywhere near as bad as aluminium, it was still marked.
