CamelBak Podium 24oz Bottle
CamelBak Podium 24 oz revolutionized the sport bottle by offering an innovative design that simplifies high performance hydration. The patented spill-proof, self-sealing Jet Valve allows the user to hydrate immediately without having to open or close a drinking interface and the bottle’s streamlined ergonomic design offers excellent squeezability without compromising bottle grip. The large aperture of the drinking nozzle generates an exceptional water flow rate and is easy to remove for thorough cleaning. The Podium also has a lockout dial with easy to read graphics for leak-proof transport.
I have relegated my CamelBak bottle to commuting use only because dirt and mud would get flung into the mouthpiece and is not easy to get out. That is my biggest problem with the bottle. Other than that, the mouthpiece/valve works as intended. It's nice to twist the top closed and throw it in my panniers when I walk out from my office to my bike without having to worry about the water spilling in my bag.
LOVE THIS BOTTLE THE TWIST TOP VALVE IS REALLY NICE AND ONE SQUEEZE OF THE BOTTLE AND THE FUILD COMES RUSING INTO YOUR MOUTH. I USE THIS ON MY MOUNTIAN BIKE ON RUFF TRAILS, THE ONE WAY VALVE NO SPILL OF FUILD AT ALL.
The top twist valve with the one-way membrane for when on the open position is simply the best in bottles for biking. None of that pulling the stopper open on a ride, and good factory suppoet for when you loose a top!
I was looking for a standard bottle for my bike. Nothing fancy. I have always enjoyed camelbak products and this was sort of an impulse buy. I must say, I am impressed with this bottle. It is not a typical design where you must lift the top of the nozzle. This works in a way where a squeeze of the bottle will send water shooting from the mouthpiece. It also has a lever that will totally shut water flow off for easy traveling in your car on the way to the race. On the bike and with the lever open, its doesn't leak at all either. Great Bottle!
