Description

The Showers Pass VelEau 42 is a unique, bicycle-mounted hydration system, designed specifically for mountain, road, triathlon, touring and recreational cycling. In fact, any cyclist who would rather carry their drink of choice behind the seat rather than on their back or on their frame.

The Showers Pass VelEau was invented by an engineer and avid cyclist who, as he was preparing for a grueling 100-mile mountain bike race in the heat of summer, was faced with the choice between a single water bottle and a hot and sweaty hydration backpack. After discarding these two traditional choices, the intrepid fellow decided to develop a back of seat mounted solution that would hold up to 1.2 litres of fluid and deliver the hydration through a tube along the length of the bike.

The VelEau Hydration System fits securely under the saddle, handily doubling as a 32 cubic inch saddle pack, and employs two patent-pending retractable reels to allow the rider safe, easy access to the hydration tube bite valve. The reels use a tough 3-ply nylon parachute cord, tested to over 180,000 cycles; and two super strong magnets to automatically return the tube to its proper position.

The end result - easier mid-ride drinking and greatly improved positioning of your fluid on the bike.

Sizing note

Showers Pass worked hard to ensure the VelEau is as universally compatible as possible. It is designed to fit any bike with at least 4 inches (10 cm) of exposed seatpost and standard seat rails. 10 minutes and a pair of scissors is all you’ll need to custom fit the VelEau 42 system to your bike. For more information and if you have a slightly alternative seat arrangement, check out this link over at the Showers Pass website for a thorough FAQ.
