In partnership with World Bicycle Relief, socially aware outdoor company (and makers of my favorite metal drinking bottles) MiiR have expanded into bicycles. Not only are the company’s new town/urban bikes attractive, each one sold will result in a second being given to a person in need. The High 5 Classic and High 5 Mixte (shown) will sell for $900, the Wave single speed/fixed gear for $700.
In addition to bringing sustainable transportation to the third world, MiiR are also introducing a slick drinking cap to their stainless bottles. Go behind the curtain for the clever solution…
Even though MiiR’s current bottle is the easiest I’ve found to drink out of (it’s just the right size), the company wanted users to be able to drink without removing the bottle’s cap. Here’s how they’ve done it:
This is a prototype- but we’re happy to say that the blue color will remain on final versions and that the bite valve looks to be easy to clean. Look for it to go on sale shortly.
