Polar Bottle Breakaway Insulated Bottle
The Polar Bottle Breakaway was created in Colorado by cyclists. It will keep your liquids cool twice as long using its Tri-layer insulation and radiant heat reflective technology.
Insulted often means that it’s bulky, but as this was designed by cyclists, it has no trouble fitting into most bike cages and includes a high-flow, self-sealing Surge Cap for spill-proof transport.
The high-flow, self-sealing cap means that it will maximize your flow rate when you want it, and when you’re done taking a drink, it’s going to self-seal to eliminate any spills or splatter (you know the ones I’m talking about, the ones that splash onto your legs as you’re riding?).
Cleaning the Breakaway is super easy. The cap is in two pieces, cap, and valve, and operates on a twist and pull system so you can get full access for cleaning. Everything is dishwasher-safe, too.
Frankly, it’s the ultimate bottle, and I love it.
- Fits into bottle cages
- Keeps your drinks cooler for twice as long
- Easy to clean
- Maximized flow rate
- No unwanted splashes
