Haven't used one of these, Anto. It looks pretty and the design is similar in a good way to the Profile cages.

My preference is for the Cateye BC-100, made of nylon. It is even lighter (29g vs 34g) and virtually indestructible. I have used them for decades on most of my bikes with no complaints. They even hold my fully filled Zefal Magnum 1l bottles securely on the roughest terrain.
See:

These can mount conventionally or can be securely held in place with cable ties if you have no bottle bosses.

Best,

Dan.
