When Every Ounce Matters
In the relentless pursuit of peak performance, elite athletes participating in weight-sensitive sports like cycling and rowing are reshaping their hydration strategies. Seeking alternatives to heavier reusable bottles, they understand that the slightest reduction in weight can be the crucial difference between silver and gold.
Consider the standard lightweight reusable water bottle, averaging around 80g. While this weight may seem inconsequential to the average person, a top-of-the-line bike frame weighs less than 600g, meaning that the difference between a reusable water bottle and a click cap can is greater than 10% of the total frame weight.
In many disciplines, athletes have been searching for an environmentally friendly alternative to PET bottles due to changing regulations and personal beliefs. However, no container has come close to the weight and convenience of a single-use bottle—until now. Enter the click cap, a groundbreaking innovation that offers elite athletes an environmentally friendly, resealable 500mL beverage container weighing less than 17g. The remarkable click cap enables athletes to carry and consume their hydration without compromising the delicate balance between lightweight and convenience equipment and effective fluid intake.
The click cap stands as a testament to innovation that caters to the relentless pursuit of excellence and the preservation of our planet; a win-win for athletes and the environment alike.
