Showers Pass VelEau 42 Hydration System - 42 fl. oz.


This product is no longer available, but don't go just yet.


  • With the saddle-mounted hydration reservoir, you can meet your hydration needs without having to carry a hydration pack or be limited by bottle cage mounts (or lack thereof)
  • Extending from the reservoir is a 47 in. tube that can be cut to fit your bike; tube is held in place against the frame with included mounts
  • Easy-access bite valve is connected to a retractable reel that's anchored with a strong magnet
  • To take a drink, simply grab the bite valve, bring it up to your mouth, drink, and then let the retracting cord and magnet re-secure bite valve—that's it!
  • The VelEau attaches to the bike with a seat post strap and a sturdy, ratcheting strap that goes through the saddle rails, keeping the system secure
  • Zippered stow pocket is great for stashing a patch kit, multi-tool and other ride essentials
  • Rear-facing attachment point lets you easily affix a rear blinky light (sold separately)
  • Wide-mouth opening makes it easy to refill the BPA-free 42 fl. oz. internal reservoir
  • Please note: the Showers Pass VelEau 42 hydration system is designed to fit a bike with at least 4 in. of exposed seat post and a saddle with standard rails
