A new company called Bivo has claimed to resolve the issue with stainless steel water bottles for cycling — the flow of water. The new Bivo One water bottle is touted to have achieved an “unmatched flow rate without the need to squeeze” for a next-level drinking experience.
As cyclists, we have stacks of water bottles. And while we always use them while riding, there are a few drawbacks to them – namely, they’re plastic. When it comes to hydration on the go, we use stainless steel bottles. While some of them do fit our plastic cages, and Kleen Kanteen even offers an iteration with a cycling bottle-like “Sport Cap” ($14) we’ve found the drinking experience to be less than optimal, making the Bivo One’s claim quite enticing.
Available in a range of colors in addition to a brushed stainless option, they weigh in at 168 grams and feature a 21 oz capacity and (we recommend brushed stainless as all our pretty bottles end up looking quite sad after a few months of use, plus it comes in at a more reasonable price point) are designed to fit most bottle cages.
Assuming they perform as promised, they seem ideal for our cycling commutes, gravel, and road cycling. I’m not so sure about actual mountain biking, but as they become available we’ll be sure to report our findings. The downside is the brushed option is only offered with a single color; as it’s a new product, this will likely be remedied soon.
The Bivo One Raw sells for $29, with color options priced at $39. Learn more at DrinkBivo.com
