Samson Cage Bolts Weigh Almost Nothing

Don’t lose your bottle! Well you won’t with a decent cage, bolted to your carbon steed. So for the weight weenies, Samson Sports has developed new alloy cage bolts which weigh almost nothing.

Weighing just 1/2g each Sampson Sports used the "drug dealer triple beam scale" to accurately measure the bolt’s weight, the commonly used electronic scale only measures in full grams.

A typical steel bottle cage bolt is around 3-5 grams each, and the average bike uses 4 for 12-20 g. of total weight, vs. just 2 grams total for 4 of the new Sampson alloy bolts.

The almost nothing bolts will be sold in 4 packs available in black, red or silver, and use a standard m4 hex head.

The light weight bolts will be available in couple of weeks, and the retail price is just US$12 for the set.

The bolts can be orders online from: Samson Sports
