I use a hydration bladder when I mountain bike. For all my other biking I use bottles. These Camelbak Podium bottles are awesome. They don’t screw up the taste of your beverage. They have a lockable valve for horizontal water bottle cages or other times you don’t want them to leak [ie. in your car!]. The valves are easy to drink from and they are available in clear which I like so I can keep tabs on how much hydro I have left. The shape is easy to hold onto with gloves on. They’ve survived a couple years of abuse without any problems.
What’s most impressive is that I realized the other day that everyone I ride with uses these bottles. That equals total bike hydration domination…=-)
They are VikApproved!
