TK stainless steel bicycle water bottle

Whether you’re wary of putting too much plastic in contact with your food or just want something that keeps a beverage cold for the entire duration of your ride (even if that ride takes two full days), Travel Kuppe has the solution. Their new TK Stainless water bottle uses double-walled, vacuum sealed construction and 18/8 stainless steel to keep drinks cold and free of chemicals while also making them useable on the bike.

No, you can’t squeeze them, but the straw-equipped lid lets you sip the contents without having to tilt your head up and taking eyes off the prize. Or, use the sippy lid for hot beverages pre-ride…

It’ll come in raw stainless and black powder coat, each coming with both lids. The shaping fits into most standard water bottle cages, and it holds 20oz. Dimensions are 9.25″ x 2.78″, weight is 250g (or, as they put it, about an inner tube heavier than a standard plastic water bottle).

Grab one on their Kickstarter campaign for as little as $25 with free shipping in the U.S. UPDATE: Original campaign was cancelled, new campaign page can be found here and has surpassed its funding goal as of 11/27/2016.


    • We pair our bottle with straw lid and sip lid. Straw lid allows you to drink out of the bottle facing forward while riding.

  1. I was just thinking about something like this for hot beverages during my dead-of-winter commutes. I had been filling my camelbak podium chill with hot water, but the water takes on a sort of plasticky character and does not stay hot for long in sub-freezing temps (although I agree with Frontier that there is no strange aftertaste with cold water).

    • *Edit* I just noticed the “related” link at the bottom of the page, and saw that Camelbak already has a stainless vacuum insulated bottle. Maybe I’ll try that one for coffee.

      • Check Klean Kanteen and S’well as well. The KK has a cage that fits the larger size insulated bottles, the S’well bottles are pricey but the insulation works really well.

        • Thanks, I’ll check those as well. Ideally I wouldn’t need to swap out a cage to use the bottle, since I routinely rotate bikes and it would be kind of a hassle.

    • I use an Origin 8 Joe 2 go with an OXO stainless coffee cup. Super secure for the cup, and stays nice and hot even in the snow. It’s on the handlebars, but I usually use the same commuter, so no biggie.

  2. My favorite use for Kleen Kanteens is as step-down growlers for triple IPA. Pour a pint, save a pint and a half growler. Stays fresh as long as you fill to the top.
