CamelBak Podium® Big Chill
CamelBak® Podium® Big Chill 25 oz is a high performance insulated sport bottle that keeps your water cooler longer. A double-walled bottle construction uses closed cell foam technology to keep your water cold twice as long as a standard bottle. The patented spill-proof, self-sealing Jet Valve™ allows the user to hydrate immediately without having to open or close a drinking interface and the bottle’s streamlined ergonomic design offers excellent squeezability without compromising bottle grip. The large aperture of the drinking nozzle generates an exceptional water flow rate and is easy to remove for thorough cleaning. The Podium® Big Chill also has a lockout dial with easy to read graphics for leak-proof transport.

CLEANING THE PODIUM® BOTTLE
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 Jet Valve. 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® Bottles are designed specifically for cycling and sports 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® ICE BOTTLE INSULATION WORK?
Podium® Ice 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 Ice 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® BOTTLES?
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?
No. However, warm beverages are OK, 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 in your Podium® Ice Bottle 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® Insulated 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.
ARE THE PODIUM® BOTTLE AND PODIUM® ICE CAPS INTERCHANGEABLE? CAN I USE YOUR CAPS ON MY OTHER BOTTLES?
Yes. The Podium® and Podium® Ice caps can be interchanged. However the caps are not compatible with eddy & Groove Bottles.
