This 3D-Printed Titanium Superleggero Is The World’s Priciest Bottle Cage

For cycling enthusiasts seeking the epitome of lightweight excellence, Alpitude introduces the Superleggero Ti, a limited-edition titanium bottle cage that redefines opulence in cycling gear. With a meticulous design and a nod to classic drillium styling, these exclusive cages promise to be the pinnacle of sophistication for the discerning cyclist who craves the extraordinary.

Alpitude, renowned for its 9g carbon Superleggero cages, has elevated its craftsmanship with the Superleggero Ti—a selective laser melting 3D-printed marvel. Crafted from titanium, these cages maintain a delicate balance between strength and weight. The founder of Alpitude expressed the motivation behind this creation, stating, “There’s only so light you can go and still hold onto your bottles. So, up in the heart of the Italian Dolomites, Alpitude decided to go exclusive instead.”

The Superleggero Ti inherits the minimalist shape of Alpitude’s standard carbon cages but incorporates a reinforced support for the bottom of the bidon, ensuring durability without compromising on elegance. Drawing inspiration from classic drillium styling, which involves subtracting metal to achieve weight reduction, Alpitude combines tradition with cutting-edge additive metal manufacturing.

Each Superleggero Ti cage boasts a mere 14.7g weight, promising an ultra-light experience for cyclists. Limited to just 99 pairs, these extraordinary cages are presented in a sandblasted natural titanium finish, packaged meticulously in a hand-crafted wooden box with a carbon fiber series number plate—a testament to their exclusivity. The premium price tag of 380€ reflects the unparalleled craftsmanship and limited availability of these avant-garde accessories.

Alpitude has commenced the production of this exclusive titanium cage, with shipments scheduled for the first week of December via FedEx. This strategic timing ensures that these extraordinary cages can be unwrapped and placed under the tree, making them an exquisite gift for the cyclist who has everything—a true embodiment of luxury and innovation in the world of cycling gear.
