Tailfin Cargo Cage

The attention to detail that has gone into the design of the Tailfin Cargo Cage is evident as soon as you pick it up. Yes, it's expensive, but it's well made, from 7075-T6 aluminium, it won't get in the way, and it won't let you down.

Got something cylindrical that you need to attach to your bike? It won't go in the bottle cages? Tailfin's Cargo Cage is the answer to your problems.

Tailfin's small Cargo Cage has three M5 slots, which are spaced for bottle cage mounts. On a normal two-bolt bottle cage inside the frame's triangle, that gives you two positions, space allowing.

The Cargo Cage comes with a paint protection rubber bung just in case your chosen place of mounting means there's a chance of the cage touching your frame or fork.


The load chip converts the cage into an L-shape. With the foot, heavier items like big Nalgene or Klean Kanteen bottles are better supported, and easier to mount. Without it, you can mount longer items, like tent poles for example.

The Cargo Cage has a slim profile, keeping the load tight to the bike to reduce strain on the mounting points as much as possible and each cage will take 5kg when riding on the road and 3kg if you head off-road.

As with most things in life, you get what you pay for. Tailfin's Cargo Cage is expensive. It's also well made, versatile, a joy to use, and no doubt will go the distance.
