Most Nitto products start out as sketches the president of Nitto does. I like to imagine him on his 3rd cup of tea, with a very sharp Tombow pencil and a napkin he stole from Arbys, coming up with amazing designs and handing the napkin over to his chief tubing bender. Let’s just assume that’s how the Nitto R bottle cage was born. It is the most elegant cage I’ve seen, and amazingly, it works really well too! Lots of pretty products are secretly hot garbage. That is not the case with the Nitto R cage. It holds a bottle well. It’s easy to load a bottle and pull it back out. It’s steel, so it’s strong. It’s fillet brazed so it’s unlikely to fail at a joint. It’s nickel plated, so it won’t rust. A perfect product. If you want a cheaper, still really nice bottle cage, get the King Stainless Cage. It works well, and it looks fine, like any old bottle cage. But if you want the most elegant bottle cage out there, this is the hot jam on your breakfast toast!
