Copper Shield Technology
Original Insulated Sport Water Bottle:
Polar Bottle Sport was the first insulated sport water bottle when it was launched in 1994. The dual-wall insulation design that we invented more than 20 years ago remains one of the top performing on the market to this day. It features a reflective foil layer between an inner and outer bottle to keep liquids cool twice as long as standard water bottles. The foil layer reflects the sunlight, while the inner and outer bottle create an insulating air barrier.
Vacuum Insulated Copper Shield Technology
For our line of stainless steel water bottles Polar Bottle takes advantage of the most cutting edge technology in vacuum insulation to keep beverages hot and cold for longer. Our stainless steel products are built with an interior copper liner that reduces surface heat loss, to insulate hot liquids for 12 hours and cold for 24 hours or more.
polypropylene Hot & Cold Insulation
In order to create a lightweight bottle that insulates both hot and cold, Polar Bottle relies on polypropylene for our Ergo lifestyle bottle line. This durable, harder plastic insulates both hot and cold liquids, while still being lightweight enough to easily carry 24/7.
Half-Twist Sip-Through Cap
In the early 2000s Polar Bottle set out to create a cap that combines the technology of a water bottle cap with the drinking experience of a glass of water. Dubbed the Half Twist™ for it’s open and close function that allows you to drink directly from the lid, this cap truly delivers a perfect sip with each drink. Simply give the cap a Half Twist to line up the water droplets on the bottle and cap and start the flow of water. Give the cap a Half Twist in the other direction and it’s completely sealed. A medical-grade silicone gasket inside the cap prevents spills and leaks.
The Half-Twist is available on all Ergo lifestyle and Thermaluxe stainless steel bottles.
Zipstream® High Flow Cap
ZipStream® is the product of our 20 plus years designing products for the cycling industry. We perfected the design by using feedback from cyclists and relied on the own bikers in our office to work out an kinks in product testing.
This is the first Polar Bottle product to feature a self-sealing squeeze valve, which both prevents the bottle from leaking even in the open position, and allows pressure to build inside the bottle when squeezed — releasing a refreshing burst of water.
The Zipstream cap is available on all 20oz and 24oz sport bottles.
The First Disposable, Recyclable, Hydration System
Cleaning is optional
The idea for our Cenote Hydration System was born from years of buying expensive hydration systems that were so hard to clean that they would inevitably be thrown out.
We sought to create an affordable system that was durable enough to wash and reuse for years, but could also be disposed of after a single use.
Cenote is the first hydration system to feature a disposable hydration reservoir that is easy to recycle and affordable to replace. This gives you the freedom to use your system however you want, for as long as you want, without worrying about buying an expensive replacement.
Cenote is the first hydration system with recyclable reservoirs. Unlike most hydration bladders, which end up in a landfill, the Cenote system is made of materials that can be recycled from home. The reservoir is made of a mix of low and high density polyethylene — recyclable number four and two respectively.
To recycle the reservoir, simply cut the HDPE hard plastic fitment from the LDPE flexible plastic bag and toss both into your recycling bin.
A BPA-Free Water Bottle Since Day 1
NO HARMFUL CHEMICALS: We know there’s a lot of concern about the safety of plastic water bottles. That’s why our bottles do not – and never have – contained harmful chemicals like BPA or phthalates.
EXTENSIVE TESTING: Our current bottles have undergone extensive testing by independent third-party services (Columbia Analytical Services, Inc. and Specialized Technology Resources, Inc.) to ensure that they are free of all known potentially harmful chemicals, including BPA and Phthalates.
FOOD-GRADE MATERIALS: Our bottles exceed the standards for FDA-approved food grade materials and meet the standards for many countries with stricter regulations. However, new knowledge is continually coming to light that may reveal other potential dangers in plastics. We follow these developments very closely to ensure that our product remains safe. If safer options present themselves, we will certainly pursue them.
As much as we pride ourselves on making bottles with unmatched quality, it’s all for nothing if they aren’t safe for our consumers to use. The safety of our product is – and will continue to be – our top priority.
