We first found these in 2009 as a concept, then at Interbike 2011 as more refined, production ready bottle. It’s a been a long development story for family founders Bruce, Becky and Alex Bernstein, but they finally started shipping last year.
Relaj water bottles combine several nifty features into one easy to grip, easy to drink bottle that helps keep your drinks a bit cooler, too.
It has a removable bottom that incorporates a freezable gel stick. Not only does it help keep your drinks a bit cooler on hot days, but it makes cleaning out the bottom much easier, too. The top has a twist-to-open spout that keeps it leakproof during transit. The main feature of the bottle, though, is the overall shape and spout design, which lets you drink while holding it from the side so you can stay in a more aero position and maintain better forward visibility.
