A great leap forward for water bottle technology.
The Clean Bottle is the million-dollar idea we all wish we'd thought of. Instead, it was Dave. You may not know Dave, but if you've watched a Tour de France mountain stage in the last two years you've seen his alter ego, Bottle Boy, the oversized version of the Clean Bottle.
The Clean Bottle isn't rocket science, but it is ingenious. The 100% non-toxic, BPA-free Clean Bottle unscrews at both ends to make cleaning a breeze. Even the nozzle is removable, giving germs no place to hide once the scrub brush comes out. Each end of the bottle has a leak-proof silicone washer. And, feel free to stuff the 22 ounce bottle to the gills with ice and drink powders, the wide mouth makes it easy.
The Clean Bottle is dishwasher safe and guaranteed for life, and Dave even donates 10% of profits to eco-friendly charities. The Clean Bottle is available in White/ blue, White/ black, and Competitive Cyclist Racing Team colors and holds 22 ounces.

as soon as you put it to your mouth and want to drink from it the tip pushes in and you're not getting any water. Also, I have to agree that the bottle is too hard to squeeze. So between the top pushed in and the bottle too hard to squeeze you're not getting any water. And I bought two of these at some sporting store for hikers. I've yet to find a good water bottle that is easy to drink from, easy to hold and carry. I found the CamelBack bottle even harder to squeeze and drink from. Sheeeesh, just can't get a good drinking bottle any more!

double sided bottle! sometimes i forget that bottom comes off and try to wash it from the top. other reviews say hard to squeeze? they must have tiny weak hands... the plastic is super soft.
And yes, bottle has another logo on it..? it's a water bottle. who cares. drink water
Despite the 5 star reviews, this bottle is tough to squeeze, making it non-functional for a majority of people. Not only that, it isn't pictured, but it sports a "POWERBAR" logo on the side behind the Competitive Cyclist logo - not cool! If this was a sponsored bottle being resold - totally uncool.
The removable bottom and "easy to clean" idea is a gimmick. There are tonnes of other better bottles out there. This isn't one of them. Will never ever buy again.
This bottle has a Powerbar logo on the other side. Totally not cool which means it's a sponsored bottle and should not be for sale. And yes, hard to squeeze. Worst bottle - EVER!
I love that this bottle is double sided, makes it really easy to clean. Love the graphic. only complaint is the bottle is hard to squeeze.
I bought 4 of these bottles. The promise of being able to clean them easily was the big draw. After washing 3 in the dishwasher (as prescribed) the never sealed on the bottom again. No matter how I tried to screw them on... they leak like crazy! 3 out of 4 -and the 4th one doesn't leak because I have never unscrewed the bottom. Save your money...
Good bottle, not great. It's not the most pleasing taste, but it doesn't get the build up at the bottom like most bottles do. I still prefer a insulated bottle.
Perfect size coupled with their innovative cleaning idea makes for a great road bottle. Two of these keep me well stocked with liquid for most of my rides.
Haven't had any issues with leaking, just make sure you put that bottom lid back on nice and tight and you'll be good to go.
The newest version of the clean bottle (Competitive Cyclist Racing Team) is softer than the old bottles and are easier to squeeze which was one of the few complaints with the previous versions. Personally I like the colorway with the black top and bottom way better than the blue.
It's easy to clean. Good design.
nice to know your next drink is going to taste fresh. No more of that nasty stale water for me. Nice to be able to also wash out that bottle with your sport drink in it
Just as the name implies, these are the only bottle to get if you use anything but straight water. Hell, I even use water 99% of the time and I still love them.
No funky flavors and they're safe in the freezer, just make sure you leave enough room for the water to expand and leave the mouthpiece open.
As you would expect from a water bottle named "Clean Bottle", this water bottle is very easy to clean after you've spent hours in the hot sun drinking energy liquids that coat the inside of your bottle like goo. Just screw off the top and bottom, clean with hot water and mild soap, and stick it on the drying rack for your next outing. Good as new.
One recommendation, which is the same for every water bottle: wash by hand. Dishwashers can get hot enough to melt the plastic
I bought a couple of these bottles, and I love them. Super sturdy, and love the double side design.
The plastic is squeezable and doesn't feel brittle. It really is easier to clean! And the plastic smell came off with the first wash.
One thing: it is pretty tall - I can just barely get it into the cage on my down tube.
I got it for $5 from Bonktown.
I have one of these bottles. It is a good concept, and does clean up well. However, it did just not stand up to actual repeated use. The bottle eventually cracked laterally and is no longer useable.
This bottle was used for approximately ten months. OK durability I suppose, but my Insulated Polar Bottles have lasted for years......I actually tend to misplace them long before they wear out.
In my opinion this is not a buy worth making for the long haul!
this bottle dose not have smell, easy clean no mold
I like this bottle's design and the ability to clean thoroughly. No leaking and the only issue is you can't squeeze the bottle so the water doesn't come out super fast, had to knock a star off for that. You have to suck the water out instead of squirting it out.
It's great that the bottle is easy to clean, but the plastic is so hard that you can't squeeze it. So whenever you drink from it, it's kind of an airy trickle that doesn't feel good at all.
I loved the bottle for the 2 months that I could use it, but the bottle started leaking badly out of the bottom. There is no visible damage or issue with the seal either. I'm no longer able to use it since the leak is so bad. I may have just gotten unlucky and gotten a defective bottle, but in general there is a risk to leaking since the bottom does screw on and off. It is a cool bottle, but just be aware that some might leak.
