PRODUCT CARE


BLADDERS

The best way to keep your USWE® bladder in top-notch shape is to clean it with soap and water and let it dry completely after every use. 


The Shape-Shift and Elite bladders are especially easy to clean because theyre reversible! They are also dishwasher (top-shelf recommended) friendly. Follow these steps for a carefree reservoir: *Not for our Disposable bladders.


SHAPE-SHIFT & ELITE BLADDERS CLEANING

  • Drain all liquids remaining in the bladder and remove the tube
  • Place your hand in the bladder, grab the bottom, and pull it back through the top opening (just like turning a sock inside-out). The molded opening can also be flipped after the bladder body has been reversed
  • Clean the reservoir with mild soap and water or place in the top rack of the dishwasher
  • Let the bladder dry out completely while reversed
  • Reverse right side out for storage


TUBE & BITE VALVE CLEANING

  • Disconnect the drink tube from the reservoir
  • Grasp the bite valve in one hand and tube in the other. Pull the valve firmly to remove the bite valve from the tube
  • Gently remove the silicone sheath from the valve and clean with mild soap and water. Rinse thoroughly
  • Clean the inside of the tube with mild soap and water. Insert the USWE Tube Brush in the open end of the tube and scrub. Rinse thoroughly
  • After drying the components, carefully reattach sheath to valve and re-install bite valve to tube


WHAT IF MY BLADDER GOT STAINED?

The material used in most our bladders, Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU), is chosen for superior durability and flexibility. It is porous and can be stained like fabric. Staining is generally caused by food coloring used in gel or liquids and does not affect the functionality of the product; yet can be difficult to remove. A company called Clean Ethics has engineered a chlorine free, non-toxic, and biodegradable tablet that is safe for virtually any surface, called Bottle Bright. We recommend using this product to combat stains and odors in your USWE® bladder.


WHAT IF MY BLADDER CATCHES TASTE?

Some users may initially notice a plastic-like taste when using any of our products made with TPU. This taste typically subsides over time and can be eliminated by simply squeezing juice from a lemon into the product, filling it with water, and then freezing it. After frozen, remove, thaw, and rinse.

Hydration Packs Guide

What are hydration packs?

Hydration packs are a great invention – they combine the storage of a rucksack with a handy method of hydration in the form of a reservoir for instant water via a hose-like straw. They are specifically designed to fit comfortably to your body while you’re riding.

Who needs a hydration pack?

Hydration packs are favoured by mountain bikers but they are also ideal if you’re out on an all-day ride and want plenty of liquid and ample storage space. There are women’s-specific hydration packs which are designed with the female form in mind and junior versions for smaller riders.

What are the choices?

The vast array of colours, designs and sizes may be overwhelming, but the simple decision to make is how much might you want to carry and how much do you need to drink. Then you can narrow the choice down. Look for heavy duty, waterproof material and a good range of adjustable, supportive straps.

What should I buy with them?

Not so much what you need to buy, but what you can put in them. Spare layers, food, maps, a changing mat if you’re mountain biking, keys, mobile phone… everything but the kitchen sink (although some of them are large enough to fit a small one in).

Anything else?

Don’t forget to clean and/or change the mouthpiece regularly, otherwise it will house bacteria and also make your water taste unpleasant.
