The S-Works Rib Cage III by Specialized - practical carbon jewellery
The Specialized S-Works Rib Cage III is a carbon bottle cage that scores with its low weight and functionality. It positions the water bottle further down, which makes its position more streamlined, and holds it securely in place while riding, even on bumpy ground conditions. On the other hand, removing the bottle from its cage is still easy. Corresponding to the FACT™ technology from Specialized, all carbon fibres used to make this bottle cage have been carefully selected and expertly laminated.
Application: Road, Triathlon & Time Trial
- made from lightweight FACT carbon
- low bottle position improves aerodynamics
- design is optimised to secure the bottle in place but also allow for easy bottle removal
FACT is an acronym for " Functional Advanced Composite Technology" and summarises all the know-how that Specialized has in the use of carbon fibre. It is a holistic approach, which primarily concerns the bike frames, but is found in many components such as handlebars, stems, saddles etc. The starting point is always the awareness for the needs of drivers and the capability to fulfil them. Next, the selection of fibres, resins and fabric layers takes place; in this process the quality of the carbon and the arrangement of the fibre layers play an important role. It is important to find the right set-up for the project at hand and the intended location or rather the area of application. It is often necessary to differentiate from model to model at several points. In the final step, attention is paid to processing the material in a way that allows the desired advantages in terms of low weight, rigidity and stability to be achieved.
