Background

Back in my cycling days, when I started to ride longer distances (50km or more) on my road bike, I found that I needed to have larger capacity water bottles to bring along for such rides. As such, I did an online search to find a bottle that has a larger capacity and can fit into my bike frame. I managed to find the bottle that fits my criteria: the Camelbak Podium 24oz/710ml water bottle. I manage to find a seller on Qoo10 that sells it at a reasonable price, and hence I decided to purchase it.

The Product

The Camelbak Podium 24oz/710ml Water Bottle comes in various colors. The one that I bought was black in color. Just like any cycling water bottle, it comes with a screw cap. The cap is Camelbak's patented Jet Valve which can unlock and spray a jet of water when pressing the bottle.

Here are some pictures of the product that I've taken:

Usage and Experience

Although I have not been cycling and using the Camelbak Podium 24oz/710ml Water Bottle for quite a while now, I can say that I did not encounter any issues when using it. The bottle did not come off at any point in time when I was cycling, and the Jet Valve is definitely a useful addition to a water bottle. 

Typically for a cycling water bottle, I will need to open the valve by biting it using my teeth while cycling. But for the Camelbak Podium, this is not necessary. With the Jet Valve, all I needed to do is to keep the bottle in unlock mode during my ride. When I want to drink, I'll just take the bottle out of the bottle cage, aim the valve onto my mouth, and press the bottle. A substantial amount of water will be released.

Sometimes when I'm not cycling, I used the water bottle during normal days, when I decided that I would just put normal water in it without any ice. As this is just a plastic water bottle and not a tumbler, condensation will occur on the water bottle's surface if ice water is put in.

Conclusion

Overall, the Camelbak Podium 24oz/710ml Water Bottle is one cycling water bottle that can be considered if you need a larger capacity water bottle for longer distance rides. The design that I have is already outdated and Camelbak has come up with a newer design. If you are interested in getting one, you can click on the links below to find out more:
