Podium®, aka the world’s best bike bottle, has been a staple of bike-enthusiasts of all kinds for years. The Dirt Series Chill™ edition builds upon the original Podium® to meet the specific needs of mountain bikers. 

Because it gets HOT out there on the trail, this bottle keeps drinks cold twice as long, with insulated double-wall construction. And for those extra muddy mountain and off-road rides, the integrated mud cap makes sure dirt stays outside and only clean, cold water stays in.

The easy-squeeze, jet-valve design makes grabbing a quick drink easy, even on the move. Fits perfectly in the bottle cage so there’s no fumbling to grab or stow the bottle. It’s also 100% free of BPA, BPS and BPF—100% awesome.
