Drinking bottle for your bike? This is what you should pay attention to.

Trinkflasche fürs Fahrrad? Darauf solltest Du achten

The streets are cleared, the birds are chirping and lovers of the cherished bicycle know: it's bike season! It's cycling season again! So check the tyre pressure, lube the chain, pack the chain lock and you're ready to go. 

But wait! If you are a busy cyclist, you will get thirsty sooner or later. That's why you should never set off without a water bottle for your bike. But which one is the right one?

What kind of cyclist are you?

Of course, the range of cycling bottles is huge. But to avoid getting lost, ask yourself: What do I plan to do with the bike?

If you are training hard to achieve specific times and don't want to stop to drink, you will probably need a bottle that can be used with one hand. In this case, aesthetics are probably a secondary consideration, as your athletic performance is the main focus. 

But if you mainly go to the park with friends or family on Sunday afternoons, a larger opening with a screw cap like the FLSK drinking bottle is much more convenient. On the way to lectures or on a day trip by bike, the unique look of your bottle also matters. In this case, it is important that you enjoy using your bottle and that it can be used in a variety of ways.

Check the size of the bike mount.

Whether you get on your bike with a backpack or with only a pocket of your trousers also plays a big role. After all, your bottle should always be on board. If you are carrying a handbag or a picnic basket, you can simply choose your water bottle according to your taste and the size of your thirst. 

For all those who want to put their drinking bottle in a bike mount, the following applies: Before buying a bottle, take a look at your bike and its mount. Some bike mounts work with a clamp that locks with a bottle that has a notch and only closes in this way. 

However, the holder is often built in such way that it only restricts the circumference of the bottle used. Therefore, we cannot tell you in general which FLSK bottle will fit into your bike holder. Just measure it!

Go for a carbon-proof insulating bottle.

With a thermos bottle for your bike, you'll always have something to smile about. The sun can blaze down on the asphalt for hours - your drink will stay refreshingly cold inside the FLSK drinks bottle. And you will always remain cool and confident in any situation. 

Love taking sparkling water or sports beverages along with you on tour? With most drinking bottles, the impact of cycling causes high pressure inside the bottle when carbonated liquids are filled in, which causes the bottle to explosively become leaky. When buying a drinking bottle, therefore, make sure that it is suitable for carbonated liquids, such as the FLSK bottles.


Every cyclist has different needs. Therefore, there is not one bottle that fits all thirsty bike enthusiasts. The FLSK drinking bottle is ideal for city cyclists, on a day trip or for commuting to work.

It will make you happy as a bike water bottle if…

  • you value style and good taste even when cycling.
  • you want to enjoy a perfectly tempered beverage, regardless of the duration of your bike tour and the weather.
