On The Trail:
Available in both in left and right side entry models the Zee Cage is great for use on a seat tube or in a full suspension frame where space is tight. The cage is stiff enough to keep your hydration of choice in place yet flexible enough to get bottles in and out easily. I haven’t lost a single bottle yet.
Although very basic the multi-tool has the essential bits. In order to keep weight and size down the multi-tool is rather small resulting in little leverage and even less reach to get to some bolts and keep clear of your frame or fork. I don't see that as a major problem though as it's not supposed to be your primary multi-tool.
The usual Specialized standard of quality is there as always. If, like me, you prefer not to have tools in your jersey or short pockets and don't like all sorts of bits and pieces strapped to your bike, the SWAT range of gear is worth a look. Some clever out of the box thinking on the part of Specialized to offer solutions to riders.
