- MTB Water Bottle
Just plonked them next to each other, the standard 21oz (620ml) version reaches up to the base of the twist-lock bit of the bite valve where it meets the main body of the cap. So the 21oz Chill is maybe an inch and a half taller. And the standard 24oz (710ml) bottle is halfway between the two.Posted 6 months agojoebristolSubscriber
Camelback podium is quite expensive and the one I had went mouldy inside the fancy spout and I couldn’t get it all out.
The best bottle I have used is actually the cheapest – a decathlon one branded ‘Aptonia’. I can’t see it on their website now though.
Key things are a rubberised mouthpiece and a flip lid over the top to keep the dirt out. At 600ml size these are ideal where you have a bike with a shock that mounts under the top tube.Posted 6 months agoantigeeMember
Think I will try the Podium Dirt (non chilled) and an Elite Cage – should be good enough for short ride!
that combo is exactly how i cut my jib, for warmer days do have the larger 4x cooler variant and yes like any bottle if you put crappy stuff in you pull them apart and stick in baby bottle steriliser on a regular basisPosted 6 months agoantigeeMember
The newer podium nozzle is easier to clean out FWIW. You can tell them from the previous design as the bottle cap is bevelled with a flat top. The older ones have a more curved cap and twisty bit.
good point I had noticed some easier to get apart and clean than others forgot they’d changed the top but not really looked at other than to check open/close the same…will sort and mark up so hydralite or gatorade only goes in the easy to clean and the others stay as water onlyPosted 6 months ago
The Elite Fly bottle just seems to crumple and does not hold any shape. It’s just too thin!!
I now have a zee cage on and where as before the podium dirt 620 was tight I can now get it in with ease.
The zee cage really does hold very well.
It will also take the 710 podium bottles. Will I genuinely notice an extra 90ml on a ride?! Is that like 3 gulps extra?!Posted 4 months ago
