Girardengo, Binda, Coppi, Bobet, names from a heroic age, an age of weathered figures in woollen jerseys hauling themselves across high alpine passes with only a thick layer of Brylcreem to protect them on the way back down
The courage and resilience of this era are the inspiration for those who lovingly restore and ride vintage bikes and equipment
Whilst many vintage components are relatively easy to source, period correct bottles and cages are true rarities and it is with this in mind that Elite have drawn on their long Italian Heritage to produce the Eroica range
Made out of robust aluminium and rubber with stainless steel fixings, Eroica cage systems mount to 22-26 mm diameter handlebars and stem in the traditional fashion but the cage units themselves can also be removed and fitted to standard bottle cage frame bosses
Rubber pads on contact points improve grip, prevent rattling and will not mark that precious original 1950's Cinelli stem you spent so long tracking down
As with the originals a lever closing system cinches the cage tightly around your bottle, ideal for the rough gravel roads many classic events run on
Whilst the cage is designed around Elite's matching 74 mm Eroica bottles it can be adjusted from 70 - 78 mm, ideal if you just so happen to have a set of original vintage team bidons to hand
Available in single (team leader) or double (domestique) versions
