The Podium® Bottle is dishwasher-safe and easy to clean. Remove the cap assembly, making sure the Jet Valve™ lockout is open, and place it with the bottle on the top rack of your dishwasher. For best results, we recommend avoiding high-heat settings such as 'sanitary clean' or 'heat boost' which may distort plastic components. We don’t recommend forcing a brush or other cleaning tool through the Jet Valve cross-slit (i.e. where you drink).

Please note that the Podium caps are primarily composed of two components: the Jet Valve and the silicone nozzle. To wash the cap by hand, pull off the silicone nozzle and wipe cap with a soapy sponge. Rinse thoroughly and snap the nozzle back on. Do not disassemble small parts of the cap JetValve. Disassembly of the plastic cap could lead to leaks or product malfunction.


I’m used to the CamelBak bite valve, where’s the bite valve on this bottle?
The Podium® Bottle and Podium® Chill are designed specifically for cycling, offering optimum, hassle-free hydration via an innovative feature called the CamelBak® Jet Valve™. Made from medical-grade silicone and designed to flow automatically when you squeeze the bottle, the Jet Valve vents pressure and seals shut automatically when you’re done. It’s simple—no biting involved. So say goodbye to yanking your old pop-top bottle open with your teeth and bashing it shut on your hip, as well as bothersome drips and leaks.

OK, I get the Jet Valve™, but do I still need to suck on the nozzle to drink?
It’s your choice. You can either put the nozzle between your lips, or just open your mouth and squirt. The Jet Valve™ opens automatically when you squeeze, then shuts automatically to prevent drips. Since there’s no pop-top valve to shut off, you can guide the nozzle into helmet vents easily without accidentally shutting off the valve.

Explain the lockout valve under the nozzle. Do I need to shut this off every time I drink?
No. The Jet Valve™ keeps your bottle sealed and drip-free during use. The rotary valve under the nozzle on the cap is actually a secondary lock-out. We recommend using the lock-out exclusively for storage, i.e. if you’re storing the bottle in a bike bag or trunk. Leave it open during rides or for easy access when you’re drinking from the bottle. You can also lock out your backup bottle on the bike to prevent any unexpected squirts from potholes or other big hits.

How does the Podium® Chill Bottle insulation work?
The Podium® Chill features a unique, low-profile double-wall construction with a layer of airtight, insulating foam. Compared to other insulated bike bottles that can be stiff or bulky (or both), the Chill bottle is lightweight, easy to squeeze, and fits a lot of water volume into a small space. That’s why we call it, “Cool without Compromise.”

Can I put sports drinks in the Podium® Bottle or Podium® Chill Bottle?
Absolutely. However, make sure to clean the bottle thoroughly after each use.

Can I use carbonated beverages?
Yes. The Jet Valve™ automatically vents pressure so that “fizz” will not cause pressure buildup. Please note, if the lockout is shut off, there will be pressure buildup, which isn’t dangerous, but could lead to unexpected spray when opened.

Can I put hot liquids in it?
Warm beverages are OK in the Podium® provided they're not hot enough to burn your mouth. Extra-hot or boiling water can distort the plastic in the bottle but warm tea is a nice treat for a cold ride.

Is the bottle microwave-safe?
We don’t recommend heating the bottle in a microwave since contents can heat unevenly. We only recommend putting warm liquids in the Podium® and Podium® Chill Bottles.

Can I freeze the bottle?
You can freeze the bottle, but before you do, make sure that the bottle is only partially full. We recommend only 3/4 full to allow for expansion of the water as it freezes to ice. Place the bottle in the freezer right side up. Remember: you won’t be able to drink until components have thawed.

Comments about CamelBak Podium® Bottle 24oz:

Well of course you have to wash these after awhile. I no longer purchase plastic water bottles now that I bought several of these. I just refil when they are empty. Great way to have water whenever you need it but best of all, not contributing to the overabundance of plastic I see daily littered about.

    Comments about CamelBak Podium® Bottle 24oz:

    I needed a simple water bottle for walking and I picked this up. It's extremely affordable and since it's Camelbak, you know it's durable. I love the jet valve and even when it's turned 'on', it doesn't spill; I tried! Hasn't spilled or leaked or anything yet so I'm extremely thrilled.

      I use this bottle for light to medium length rides. Anything over 30 miles and I prefer to carry more water. Jet valve works great. I will buy another.

      Great bottle, but noise (burping) issues

      Comments about CamelBak Podium® Bottle 24oz:

      This is the best bottle for road cycling (I use Camelbak's backpacks for mtb).

      However, the primary issue is with the Jet valve's tendency to "burp." Pressure always needs to equilibrate, hence the bottle will constantly be making small noises as you use it throughout the day.

      This is only an issue for off-bike use, e.g., in your school backpack, taking it with you everywhere. I have traveled extensively with the Podium bottle, and this consistent clicking/popping/gurgling/burping is simply annoying.

      Regardless, I will continue to use exclusively it for my cycling needs.

      • Not Mountain Biking

      Comments about CamelBak Podium® Bottle 24oz:

      I bought this for mountain biking. Problem is the valve collects a lot of dirt and debris while riding, and there is no way to clean it out while in use. I tried squirting some water through it to clean it before taking a drink, but I wasted most of my water and still did not get most of the dirt out.

      They now offer a $6 cap to put over the jet valve, but that completely negates the purpose of the valve which is to provide a valve that does not need to be opened each time you use it, plus at $6 it costs more than most complete bottles do.

      I've used it road riding and it works fine, but I would just go with a standard bottle and forget the whole jet valve.

      Comments about CamelBak Podium® Bottle 24oz:

      I love this product! I have two, and just ordered my sister one so she'll stop taking mine =) Really a great water bottle. I received one as a gift several years ago, and found the other near the bike path (big score foe me).

      There are two things to never do: 1) never leave cap partially unscrewed (easier than you think) 2) never EVER wash out with soap (unless of course you enjoy the taste of soapy water)...

      All in all, this is a wonderful water bottle, which as far as I can tell, has been unrivaled in quality and design.
