RIDE WITH PEACE OF MIND!
With its 1-litre capacity, your water bladder will last you around 2 hours of riding.
It's quick to fill thanks to its wide opening. When closing it, make sure the slider clips into place to ensure that it won't leak.
Adjustable tube and valve for increased comfort.
You can cut the water bladder's tube to the most convenient length for you!
To do this, remove the bite valve, place the tube in hot water to soften it, cut it to the desired length and put the bite valve back on.
The bite valve is lockable (rotates 180°) to prevent leaks when not in use. It won't drip, even when in the open position. To get a good flow when drinking, gently bite the valve and suck.
COMPOSITION, DIMENSIONS AND CARE
The materials used to make this water bladder are guaranteed to be free of BPA (bisphenol A) in accordance with current French regulations.
It measures 31 x 16 cm, with a 100 cm tube.
To make your water bladder last longer, we recommend not folding it, not filling it with hot liquids and not carrying it upside down or by its tube ;)
How to remove the air and why
To improve water flow and stop the water sloshing around inside the bladder during your ride, we recommend releasing any air before you set off!
Just turn the hydration bladder upside down once filled, direct the air bubbles towards the tube opening and suck them out. And hey presto, you can now drink quickly and quietly as you ride!
How to clean your water bladder
To avoid a plastic taste when drinking, we advise you to rinse the product 3 times before first use. We recommend cleaning it after every ride using the cleaning kit (product ref. 5935596).
After cleaning, leave the hydration bladder upside down and open to dry thoroughly.
If the plastic taste won't go away, place the dry hydration bladder in the freezer for one night.
Tested, approved and made in France!
To check this water bladder's quality, we've tested it thoroughly in our in-house lab.
Besides spotting no defects during our burst / high pressure tests, we noted an increase in puncture resistance of more than 74%.The water bladder is made in France, which means we can closely monitor production quality (for watertightness and sturdiness over time).
