PETALUMA, Calif. (BRAIN) — CamelBak has updated its insulated bike water bottle, the Podium Ice, with a higher flow rate and a valve that is easier to clean.
The new design gets a higher flow rate thanks to a more flexible bottle wall and a larger diameter Jet Valve nozzle. The new Jet Valve has a larger locking toggle and is removable to make cleaning easier.
The bottle holds 21 ounces of fluid and is made from BPA-free polypropylene, with a HydroGuard coating to eliminate taste and inhibit bacteria growth.
"Research shows that cold beverages positively impact athletic performance in hot and humid conditions, so we wanted to offer a sport bottle that keeps liquids cold for an extended amount of time," said Jon Austen, senior director of product management at CamelBak. "Our Podium Ice bottle had a large fan base from its launch in 2010, and we're excited to bring back an even more technically advanced product."
The Podium Ice fits in most bike bottle cages, is dishwasher-safe and covered by CamelBak's lifetime guarantee. Available in three colors, it will retail for $25 MSRP.
