CLEANING THE PODIUM® CHILL BOTTLE
The Podium® Chill 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 Jet Valve. Disassembly of the plastic cap could lead to leaks or product malfunction.

FAQ

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.

        Used for MTB, liked the idea of an insualted bottle.

        Found that the valve, although super cool, did not do anything a regular valve does not.

        I get thirsty, I like to pump the bottle and have a blast of water - maybe 1/4 - 1/3 of the bottle sometimes. After a few uses the seam around the lid would open using this action and send a stream of water or sport drink down my chin, neck and front. Not really where I wanted it.

        If you were using this as a sipper bottle it would be great. Otherwise, it leaks all over the place. Fail for me.

        Podium Chillin on a Boat

        By joshonabike

        Comments about CamelBak Podium® Chill 21oz:

        I am a cyclist and, yes, I absolutely 100% agree with everyone here who has stated that this bottle is PERFECT for Cycling and Mountain Biking. The bottle fits great with the various bottle cages I've used on my bikes and on bikes I've rented. NO ISSUES with bottle cage fitment.

        A nice accessory for mountain bikers is the CamelBak Mud Cap designed for this bottle. It keeps dirt out of the valve!

        Where we've had more fun with the Podium Chill bottles is out on the boat. The Spill-Proof Jet-Valve works AWESOME when not in the Locked feature, which is a brilliant idea…Thanks CamelBak!

        Because we don't have to worry about spilling, we fill these up completely with as much ice as we can fit into the bottles, then add our fun river / lake beverages.

        We fill up as many bottles as we can take, usually three per person, so we can save more room for ice and food in the coolers. It gets up to 114 degrees out on the Mojave River and these bottles keep our drinks cool, even when floating with us in the water.

        These bottles are amazing and can definitely be used in other ways besides just cycling!

        PROS:
        + They Float on the water
        + Lockout Feature to prevent spilling
        + Spill-Free even when unlocked
        + Keeps drink cool for 1-2 hours in 114 degree weather
        + Fits almost any Bottle Cage
        + Durable if dropped (over and over again)
        + Jet-Valve delivers just the right amount of fluid

        CONS:
        - Make sure to keep valve open / unlocked if washing in Dish Washing Machine
        - Jet-Valve takes some effort to clean
        - May need Q-Tips if you want to prevent mold from building up in Jet-Valve

        At the end of the day, the Podium Chill Bottle is an awesome product for any athlete or party-goer!!

                I teach spin classes and had to move to a bottle that delivered water (quickly) because the time between tracks is only seconds. I do not have problems with it dripping all over the place. Once I learned to clean the valve it has been the greatest water bottle!! I also use this for cycling outdoors. Delivers water quickly with a squeeze, easy cleaning, have not had any problems.

                    I use it for EVERYTHING but only with water, doesn't leak, stays cold. Only thing I would change is an easier way to keep the valve clean. I have broken the special seal trying to get it clean. Dishwasher doesn't seem to do the job, and I seldom have it empty long enough. When I lost my first one I went right out and bought another. I love it. Except for the cleaning thing.

                          I usually carry two of these on my bike. The night before a ride I pop them in the freezer, half to 3/4 filled with water. The insulation of the bottle ensures cool drinking water on my rides. I've been using the same bottles for a year without one single issue.

                              Works fine if you suck the water out, but squirting it doesn't work as it integrates too much air into the flow and causes it to squirt out everywhere. Not worth the price
