The bottle is very much designedwith the triathlete and swimmer in mind. A unique silicone gripped sleeve is positioned on the bottom half of the bottle which is easy to hold during wet conditions and fits snugly into a cycling bottle cage.
The founder of Zone3 competed in the European Elite Triathlon Championships in 2010. During the first cycle lap his bike hit a bump on the road resulting in his water bottle slipping out of its cage. This was not only very dangerous but also had a major impact on his race result as he quickly became very dehydrated. The grip on the drinks bottle was therefore designed to address this problem.
The bottle also features a gripped thumb hole positioned three quarters of theway up the bottle to allow water to easily be dispensed into the mouth.
With the athlete in mind, the clear coloured bottle has been designed so the remainingvolume of liquid can be seen - this helps whenplanning hydration during training or racing. Using up too much liquid early in the session can lead to dehydration if the athlete is unable to refill his/her drink bottle.
The bottle also features a durable cap with soft rubber nozzle which is easy to use.
