Therein lies the difference


One bottle - 3 actions

Gel Bot by Hydrapak
REVIEW DATE: 9 Nov, 2009
RRP: $34.90

For the sake of a better bottle the brains at US Company Hydrapak have come up with just that.  When the samples arrived in the office mid year I was intrigued, I guess reaching into the pocket for a gel is a reasonably harmless action but one that is always an issue, ripping the gel open then which pocket shall I put the sticky wrapper into?

Well now you have the opportunity to make this a thing of the past with the Gel Bot, I certainly have, its the one piece of equipment I own that every time I take a drink / gel, I think to myself "what a mint bottle".  Not only does the bottle deliver the gel in the same action as taking a drink, but you can wash the gel down straight away in the same action.

From experience the internal gel "missile" takes exactly 2 PoweGels, and delivers every last ml.

I'm lead to believe these have just arrived in NZ and are becoming available this week, rip into a dealer and kit up for Taupo.  It's not just a bottle it's the full energy delivery system!

Features

  • Allows constant feeding
  • One bottle - three modes!
  • Facilitates proper ratio of gel to water
  • Can consume gel with same action as drinking from a bottle
