CamelBak Showcases VeloBak™ - Industry’s First Cycling Jersey with Integrated Hydration
LAS VEGAS – The hydration experts at CamelBak® continue to redefine and reinvent ways for cyclists, runners and endurance athletes to wear what they drink.
The latest innovation is the CamelBak®
, the industry’s first cycling jersey with built-in hydration, which is on display in the CamelBak Interbike booth (#3955) Sept 23-25
Available in both men’s and women’s sizes, VeloBak features a dual zip front and three jersey pockets. VeloBak has all the performance features of standard jerseys, but is actually an integrated hydration system with a compression pocket that comfortably holds a 72-ounce reservoir.
Made of a breathable and lightweight material, the VeloBak is ideally suited for road or mountain bike rides lasting two or more hours.
VeloBak is an addition to CamelBak’s wearable hydration line, which includes RaceBak™, the industry’s first base-layer apparel with built-in hydration capabilities. RaceBak was custom-designed for cyclists and other endurance sports athletes.
“VeloBak provides cyclists all the comfort and functionality they’re accustomed to in a jersey with the added benefit of built-in hydration,” said Jon Austen, Director of Product Management for CamelBak. “The compression fabric holds water securely in place and makes it possible to stay hydrated on extended rides without having to reach to or refill your bottle.”
CamelBak will also unveil the redesigned RaceBak at Outdoor Retailer, which features a quarter zipper and a lighter open weave QuickFit™ fabric that enhances ventilation, breathability and ease of taking it on and off.
