ECOtanka stainless water bottles
We’ve received heaps of enquiries about stainless steel water bottles to fit bicycle bidon cages. This, plus reading a few articles about the dangers of some common chemicals in widely used plastics and risks of lower grade drink bottles, has prompted us to track down quality stainless steel bottles that fit bicycle bidon cages.
The ECOtanka range is durable, affordable and safe:
“Stainless steel offers one of the most hygienic surfaces available. It is very easy to clean and it’s unique surface has no pores or cracks to harbor dirt, grime or bacteria. Your bottle will stay completely clean and safe for years upon years.”
And, unlike many other stainless bottles, the ECOtanka Sports Tanka fits bicycle bidon cages really well.
Sally Dilon reviewed the ECOtanka in Australian Cyclist a few years back, concluding:
But stainless steel is very easy to clean and has no pores or cracks to harbour dirt, grime or bacteria. So your bottle stays completely clean and safe for years, and the water tastes sensational. I’m afraid I’m hooked, and I’m buying the 350ml TeenyTANKAs for my kids.
