S'well Water Bottle
Available in a whole artist’s palette of colours, you shouldn’t have any problem finding the perfect S’well bottle to compliment your bike. Designed by Sarah Kauss just a few years ago, S’well bottles’ entirely plastic-free makeup have made them hugely popular across the globe.
Versatile in design, they can keep cold drinks chilled for 24 hours and hot drinks hot for 12 hours. There are three different sizes to choose from, and although arguably not an ideal size for most bike’s bottle holders, they will fit nicely into any bag or pannier.
Prices start from £24.95 for a 0.26L bottle in one of the seven classic colours and go up to £39.95 for the larger 0.75 litre options.
The Beat Bottle
This water bottle will not only hydrate you, it will also keep your iPhone safe for you whilst you’re pedalling and play music straight from your iTunes too.
The Beat Bottle is made from silicone to ensure your phone stays protected. Available in red, blue or green, it is designed to hold cold drinks only.
This music-lover’s bottle is hard to come by in the UK, but Brookstone has started offering international shipping so you can now get your hands on one for around £13 plus postage.
A great deal at just £9.99, the Zefal Arctica water bottle keeps cold liquids cold and hot liquids hot for up to two and a half hours at a time.
Its 700ml capacity makes it a great choice bottle for longer rides and despite being larger than most bottles, it is still very easy to get in and out of a fitted bottle holder quickly.
Citrus Zinger Water Bottle
Infusing natural ingredients and flavours into water, the Citrus Zinger water bottle is perfect for cyclists who aren’t overly keen on plain water.
Designed with citrus fruits in mind, the bottle comes complete with a built in juicer to extract tons of flavour from fresh lemons, limes and clementines. For the perfect fruity drink, fill the main compartment with a generous handful of ice and then top with cold water. As you ride the ice will melt and the fruit will infuse the water giving you a beautifully cold, refreshing drink.
A water bottle that filters the liquid as you drink it, Bobble bottles are available in a wide variety of colours, sizes and purposes.
The classic bobble has a clear cap and is see-through in colour so that you can watch the replaceable carbon filter ridding of any chlorine and organic contaminants in the water. New varieties of the Bobble include coloured bottles, large carry caps and a sports bottle design.
Perma-Frost Hydra Bottle
With a built-in refreezable gel pack, the Perma-Frost Hydra Bottle is ideal for accompanying you on long, summer rides.
It can hold up to twenty ounces of liquid and can withstand both sub-freezing and boiling temperatures.
There’s no need to add ice to your drink with this bottle, simply pop the Perma-Frost Hydra into the freezer for an hour and then you’re good to go.
Unfortunately the bottle is currently out of stock on most UK sites but you can have it shipped over from the USA by ordering one from Brookstone for around £11.
Personalised Novelty Bottles
These may not be the most practical of water bottles to take out on the bike with you, but they’re great for the novelty factor and certainly make an ideal gift idea for the cycle fanatic in your life.
Available from Not on the Highstreet for just £15, choose between a variety of designs including: ‘King of the Road’, ‘On yer bike Dad’ and ‘I love my Bike’ or think up your own slogan to make it truly personal.
Each bottle comes complete with two different caps - a pop-up for use with cold drinks and a screw top for hot drinks.
Not technically a bottle but a convenient way to hold water either way, the Hydrosleeve enables easy hands-free drinking whilst on the move.
A great choice for serious cyclists, the Hydrosleeve is perfect for taking out on short training rides where you don’t want to have to stop to drink or would prefer not to have a bottle attached to your bike or a bag on your back.
CamelBak Podium Chill Bottle
One of the most popular water bottles amongst cyclists, the CamelBak Podium Chill bottle keeps drinks cold for twice as long as most bottles thanks to its insulated double wall construction.
The wide-mouth opening allows you to fill the bottle with ice easily and the self-sealing lid prevents annoying spillages.
Despite not being exceptionally attractive, the Elite Nanogelite is one of the top performing low-cost water bottles on the market.
Constructed using Nanogel, the Elite Nanogelite is an innovative design that keeps both hot and cold drinks at their optimum temperature for an unsurpassable amount of time.
It’s also incredibly lightweight and squeezable making it an ideal bottle for taking out on the bike and for using whilst riding.
