This clever bottle design from the engineers at Silca will help you keep your water and bite valve clean from dirt and debris. The idea of having a cover for the top of the water bottle is not a new idea, however Silca's approach is to a capped bottle is unique.
The clear plastic top cap has 4 prongs which rest and grab around the valve. When you open the cap, the prongs pry open the valve and you are ready to drink. Conversely, when you close the cap, the prongs then close the valve and seals the bottle. The top cap has a ring and strap to keep it attached to the bottle. Simple and effective, the Silca Top cap bottle will keep mud, dirt and debris off of your valve for clean swigs of fluid while riding in nasty conditions and inclement weather.
Large cap and bottle diameter makes it easy to fill the bottle and add supplements. Standard bottle diameter fits all normal bottle cages. We pictured two bottles to give a visual on how the cap design works, but they are sold individually. Choose from clear or white bottles. White bottle has a clear, see-through vertical strip to check you fluid level.
When I mountain in dusty conditions this bottle keeps the nipple and my lips clean. Works great!
Pros: avoids contact of dust, mud, cow crap to my mouth
Cons: can not open and close with your mouth
