Stay Cool and Hydrated with Polar Bottle Breakaway Insulated Bolt Bottle

I’m riding my bike way more that I used to, now that I’m grounded from travel for the time being. It’s allowed me to rediscover how much I love cycling, and I tend to forget that when I’m zipping around the world for work and not on cycling trips.

But because I don’t have a set riding schedule, sometimes I’m out early and others I hit the roads and trails in the afternoon. And as the weather warms up, afternoon riding means that the water in my bike water bottle can get a little warm. So, I’ve been using the Polar Bottle Breakaway Insulated 20-ounce Bolt bottle.

The LDPE, 100-percent BPA-free insulated water bottle has triple wall insulation, keeping your water cool as long as you’re out (within reason). Designed with ultralight materials and radiant heat reflective technology, the bottle handles warm and hot temperatures without passing the heat along to your water.

Made for cyclists by cyclists, the Breakaway bottle fits securely in a variety of bottle cages and has a unique grip groove, so you can hydrate with an easy squeeze. The bottle has an innovative Surge Cap, which maximizes flow rate and self-seals to eliminate spills and splatter. It’s spill-proof when open, and when pushed closed, it’s leak proof. The two pieces that make up the Surge Cap are also easy to clean—just twist, pull, and wash (even in the dishwasher).

Bottles made by Polar Bottle are crafted in Colorado to reduce environmental impact and support local economies, and they’re designed to last, with a lifetime guarantee that covers defects in materials and workmanship for the practical lifetime of the bottle.

The Breakaway Insulated 20-ounce Bolt Bottle comes in white/silver, charcoal/silver, and blue/silver options, and lists for $14.00 on the Polar Bottle site.
