Drinking from a Bivo - A Surprise Win!

When we came up with the idea of Bivo, we knew we had to be able to drink out of it with ease. We had tested other metal bottles out there and the other sports nozzles all chugged as air was pulled into the bottle so the water could come out. Neither Robby nor I liked that experience, and knew we needed to solve that problem first if were really going to make a bottle specifically for riding bikes. There were other things we needed to solve for, but that was NUMBER ONE!

The goal was a fast, clean stream of water. That’s it. We didn’t think much of it other than that to be honest. We had never really thought about the flow rate of a bottle before. We had never complained that we didn’t like the flow rate from a plastic bottle, for example. We just thought we had to be as good as plastic.

We did lots of testing to figure out the best way to have optimal flow rate. There were a lot of cool ideas, many of them too complicated. What we ended up with was actually one of our original concepts – vent air inside the bottle and the water will flow out cleanly! Check out Robby's video below explaining how it all works.  

Annnnnnnd, it turns out, it’s awesome to drink out of. Seriously, we never intended to create a better drinking experience from a flow rate perspective, it simply came out of trying to solve the problem of getting water out of a metal bottle better. We laugh at that often – while it wasn’t a mistake, it was a surprise win and we are very happy you all love the drinking experience!

*Remember, make sure to close your nozzle when you're done drinking so you don't spill!

We are all very excited here in the Bivo office because our Gravity Flow system that allows for that amazing drinking experience is now officially PATENTED! It takes some time (3.5 years), so it is fun to see that come across the finish line. Thanks for being here and fueling more fun with us!

I wish that should have at least 32 oz. insulated bottle with grab handle/stainless steel straw or tube on the market because I drink a lot of ice and cold water very thirsty, dehydrate and dry mouth everyday, up to 2 gallons per day and also I am older, not young anymore, bummer that I use the bike. I will be 74 this coming December 16th. Biggest drawback that I pee a lot. This is no fun at all that I’ll have to stop any store for public restroom frequently. I wish that stay young immortal forever for less pee, that’s why. These bottles are still too small, not big enough because I have no room for several bottles on this bike so I’ll wait until available on the market. Please try this at least two extra large 32 oz. bottles with grab handles on this bike. Thank you.

I love all my bivos, but I have just one request- can you make a larger version for bike packing and hiking, if there were a 30 oz version, it would fit fork bottle mounts with a strap and in packs. Another use case would be for small frames where only one bottle can fit on the downtube and not on the seattube.

Thanks guys!
