Spruzza Rider Spraying

What could they possibly come up with next? Just in time for Christmas, you too can be squirting yourself with a stream of water right in the face. As Spruzza warns, you’d better grab your own squirting apparatus “before Santa’s Ho-Ho-Ho becomes summer’s hot-hot-hot.” (Catchy line, eh?) Sometimes you just have to see it to believe it…

Spruzza

Their tag line is “a cooler way to ride,” with the promise that you can “lower your perceived temperature 15-25 degrees, season after season.” And while you likely have no interest in lowering your perceived temp this season, if you often find yourself riding through the parched landscape of Death Valley (or Vegas)…in August, or over the never-ending sands of the Sahara desert (after all, what’s your fat-bike intended for?), perhaps this squirt-happy, ergonomically-aerodynamic, reservoir of coolness could be your ticket.

Spruzza Spray Zones

If you are sold, just wait for all the fun tech details. First off is the Spruzza’s “spray coverage.” This thing boasts a spray-spread with an accuracy of 2-3”, giving you the luxury of adjusting your “cooling preferences” to forehead; eyes (say what?!); mid-face; mouth (I wonder if your can add sports drink mix to the reservoir?); neck; and chest. But this highly precise squirting is not all…

Spruzza Comparison Chart
That’s Some Good Math

Spruzza compares themselves to common cycling accessories such as your iPhone, water bottles (or as fancy Brits say, cycling bidons), shoes, jerseys, and helmets. Clearly they would hope you to find their product equally as invaluable. And apparently one water bidon is equal to three whole Spruzzas — now just imagine that, a full row of numerous Spruzzas bolted to your handlebars. You would be the highlight of the next club ride for sure.

And finally, if a picture is worth a thousand words and a video is worth a thousand pictures…then I suppose one ought to opt for the video. And that’s just what Spruzza did; an inspirational video depicting a number of people riding along and squirting themselves. They look very cool.

Spruzza Kit
You Would Look Good In This

For a mere $59.99 the squirtingly cool Spruzza can be yours in black or white (I hear the pro peloton is opting for the white version). And if you find yourself to be a real fanboy, the full shorts/jersey kit is just $169.99. Merry Christmas and Happy Squirting!

So you want me to buy something that sprays water all over my sunglasses so I can’t see when I am riding? Brilliant!

This will be perfect for cyclocross training. I can fill it full of mud and aim it for my eyes.

This is over engineered at best, several years ago you could buy a water bottle with a “shower head” type cap included.

I’m reminded of the South Park “Shake Weight” episode.

This would be better for group rides. Let your friends “cool” you down. http://www.walmart.com/ip/Fuze-Cyclone-Water-Blaster-Bike-Accessory/35285300

Given the unfortunate tendency for spandex to get really foul smelling, maybe roadies could mount one of these under the saddle, fill it with perfume, and aim it at their posteriors.

@James S, I don’t know what your experience is with spandex, but if it’s that foul smelling, something is wrong.

I got a couple of O2Cool mist and sip bottles at Home Depot for $10 each over the summer. Just had to make sure I filled it with water lest I’d get sticky from Gatorade or other mixed drinks.

What? No Di2 integration?

that photo showing the guy getting a spritz surely does not indicate highly focused targeting. He’s getting a whole face wash.

Maybe this thing only works below 7 mph.

@ James S: I couldn’t agree more with AlanM. Are you sure it’s the Spandex smelling? Perhaps time to think who you are riding with, or where you are riding, or perhaps you just need a mentos to freshen up your breath. 😉

Otherwise, WTF!? I can see that this ad could convince a non-cyclist in buying something for a cyclist as a Christmas present, but otherwise…

LOL.

Heat lost due to evaporation is one of the best ways to cool your body down.

So cover yourself (especially your head) in water, iy evaporates, you cool down.

Science is right, plumbing is wrong.

Most of the water from this dispensing mechanism will end up all over your chest and “privates”.

It needs a top down show head fixture.

Maybe replaceable with an umbrella attachment when you want to stay dry in the cold/wet season?

This reminds of one summer living in Tucson when our car’s AC went out. We didn’t have the dosh to get it fixed, so we drove around that summer with spray bottles of water in the car to spritz ourselves every few minutes.

Spruzza roughly translates into a magic potion that either makes giant riders or shrinks their frames.

I kept thinking a product like this would be fantastic, but now I see one I think it looks ridiculous. I suffer from the heat very badly and in hot weather I generally get a mouth full of water and spray it in front of my face whilst riding to cool myself down…pretty similar to this huh? I think I’ll stick to my current solution though.
