Podium® Steel & Podium® Titanium FAQs

What are Podium® Steel and Podium® Titanium made of? Are they BPA free?

  • Podium® Steel is made from high-quality, medical grade “18/8” stainless steel. Podium® Titanium is made from Grade 1 Titanium. Both materials resist stains and corrosion. They are also naturally free of taste and odor.
  • Podium® Steel and Podium® Titanium bottles are 100% free of BPA, BPS and BPF.

Are Podium® Steel and Podium® Titanium dishwasher safe?

  • Yes, Podium® Steel and Podium® Titanium bottles are dishwasher safe. We recommend placing the vessel and cap on the top rack to avoid damage.
  • If washing by hand we recommend hot, soapy water and a bottle brush.

Do I need to squeeze Podium® Steel or Podium® Titanium?

Will Podium® Steel or Podium® Titanium fit in a bike cage?

  • Podium® Steel and Podium® Titanium are designed to fit in the majority of bike cages on the market. 

What is the blue tube attached to the underside of the cap?

  • The bright blue tube underneath the Podium® cap is the “Vent Tube.” It is the secret to unlocking a high rate of water flow when you drink from the bottle. The Vent Tube allows air to enter the vessel, displacing water as it flows out.

Are Podium® Steel and Podium® Titanium insulated?

  • Podium® Steel and Podium® Titanium bottles are vacuum insulated to keep your water cold. Podium® Steel 18oz keeps water cold for 14 hours, Podium® Steel 22oz keeps water cold for 18 hours, and Podium® Titanium keeps water cold for 7 hours.

Can I put hot beverages in my Podium® Steel or Podium® Titanium?

Are Podium® Steel and Podium® Titanium compatible with the Mud Cap accessory?

Are Podium® Steel and Podium® Titanium compatible with the plastic Podium® bottle caps?

Will other caps work on the Podium® Steel and Podium® Titanium bottles?

Will the color scratch off my new Podium® Steel or Podium® Titanium? Are there any bike cage recommendations to prevent this from happening?

  • Although Podium® Steel and Podium® Titanium bottles are extremely durable, they will likely show some wear eventually with repeated use in any type of bike cage. We like to see these scrapes and scratches as reminders of our favorite rides over the years.

I lost my blue Vent Tube, can I still drink from the bottle and how do I get a replacement part?

  • Water will still flow without the blue vent tube, but not as freely. If you lost or damaged your vent tube, please visit the warranty section of the website to file a claim.
