CamelBak® Got Your Bak™ Guarantee: If we built it, we'll Bak it™ with our lifetime guarantee.
We recommend wiping your pack with a damp cloth to remove dirt. If the pack is extremely dirty and needs a deeper cleaning, soak it in cool or warm water with a very mild soap. Rinse the pack thoroughly with cool water. If soap residue remains in the fabric, it may create suds if exposed to water or sweat.
DO NOT wash your pack in a washing machine. Machine washing may damage the pack or affect the integrity of the fabric and fasteners, and will void the Got Your Bak™ Guarantee.
PODIUM® BOTTLE CLEANING
The Podium® Bottle is dishwasher-safe and easy to clean. Remove the cap assembly, making sure the Jet Valve™ lockout is open, and place it with the bottle on the top rack of your dishwasher. Do not disassemble small parts of the cap, simply place the whole cap into the washer. Disassembly of the cap could lead to leaks or product malfunction. For best results, we recommend avoiding high-heat settings such as 'sanitary clean' or 'heat boost' which may distort plastic components. We don’t recommend forcing a brush or other cleaning tool through the Jet Valve cross-slit (i.e. where you drink).
I’m used to the CamelBak bite valve, where’s the bite valve on this bottle?
The Podium® Bottle, Podium® Chill and Podium® Ice are designed specifically for cycling, offering optimum, hassle-free hydration via an innovative feature called the CamelBak® Jet Valve™. Made from medical-grade silicone and designed to flow automatically when you squeeze the bottle, the Jet Valve vents pressure and seals shut automatically when you’re done. It’s simple—no biting involved. So say goodbye to yanking your old pop-top bottle open with your teeth and bashing it shut on your hip, as well as bothersome drips and leaks.
OK, I get the JetValve™, but do I still need to suck on the nozzle to drink?
It’s your choice. You can either put the nozzle between your lips, or just open your mouth and squirt. The JetValve™ opens automatically when you squeeze, then shuts automatically to prevent drips. Since there’s no pop-top valve to shut off, you can guide the nozzle into helmet vents easily without accidentally shutting off the valve.
Explain the lockout valve under the nozzle. Do I need to shut this off every time I drink?
No. The Jet Valve™ keeps your bottle sealed and drip-free during use. The rotary valve under the nozzle on the cap is actually a secondary lock-out. We recommend using the lock-out exclusively for storage, i.e. if you’re storing the bottle in a bike bag or trunk. Leave it open during rides or for easy access when you’re drinking from the bottle. You can also lock out your backup bottle on the bike to prevent any unexpected squirts from potholes or other big hits.
Can I put sports drinks in the Podium® Bottle or Podium® Chill Bottle?
Absolutely. However, make sure to clean the bottle thoroughly after each use.
Can I use carbonated beverages?
Yes. The Jet Valve™ automatically vents pressure so that “fizz” will not cause pressure buildup. Please note, if the lockout is shut off, there will be pressure buildup, which isn’t dangerous, but could lead to unexpected spray when opened.
Can I put hot liquids in it?
No. However, warm beverages are OK, provided they’re not hot enough to burn your mouth. Extra-hot or boiling water can distort the plastic in the bottle, but warm tea in your Podium® Chill Bottle or Podium® Ice is a nice treat for a cold ride.
Is the bottle microwave-safe?
We don’t recommend heating the bottle in a microwave since contents can heat unevenly. We only recommend putting warm liquids in the Podium®, Podium® Chill and Podium® Ice Bottles.
Can I freeze the bottle?
You can freeze the bottle, but before you do, make sure that the bottle is only partially full. We recommend only 3/4 full to allow for expansion of the water as it freezes to ice. Place the bottle in the freezer right side up. Remember: you won’t be able to drink until components have thawed.
What is BPA?
Bisphenol-A is an ingredient used to make polycarbonate and certain other plastics. Recently, there has been increasing consumer demand for a bottles made without Bisphenol-A (BPA). CamelBak is proud to offer all of its bottles in BPA-free materials, including the Podium®, Podium® Chill, Podium® Ice, Better Bottle™, Classic Bottle, Performance™ Bottle and Kids’ Bottle.
How do I clean the bottle?
The Podium® Bottle is dishwasher-safe and easy to clean. Simply remove the cap assembly, making sure the JetValve™ lockout is open, and place it, along with the bottle, on the top rack of your dishwasher. Do not disassemble small parts of the cap—simply place the whole cap into the washer. For best results, we recommend avoiding high-heat settings such as “sanitary clean” or “heat boost” which may distort plastic components.
We recommend cleaning the Podium® Chill and Podium® Ice bottles by hand, using warm water (and soap if desired). High heat from the dishwasher may distort the lightweight plastic bottle components. The Podium® Chill and Podium® Ice caps can be washed in a dishwasher. For instructions, see above.
