KEEGO – The world’s first SQUEEZABLE metal bottle.

€215,733

Watching him take a break from destroying yet another opponent, we wondered... How come the role-model of clean sportsmanship drinks his water from a cheap plastic bottle?

All athletes, from amateur to professional, know the benefits of a squeezable bottle. It allows for one-handed, fast and precise drinking. Keeping distraction to a minimum and yourself in full focus.

However, up until now all squeezable bottles were made of plastic. Which comes with a lot of disadvantages: Potential health risks, a throw-away mentality and most of all BAD TASTE. Roger knows what we’re talking about. Stale and flat water, contaminated by plasticisers and softeners.

When even the greatest among us have to sacrifice purity and fresh taste for mere functionality, something needs to be changed. After all, next to our willpower, water is the main thing that keeps our body going.

 As the first of it’s kind, KEEGO fuses all the benefits of a light and squeezable plastic bottle with the clean taste and endurance of a metal one. Allowing you to fully focus on your performance with a precise water stream and good flow-rate. While keeping your water pure and healthy.

You’ve got high-tech shoes, shirt and a high-tech bike. Why not a high-tech bottle?

We are striving for excellence to create the perfect bottle for every athlete. Not only does KEEGO fit the bottle cage of every bicycle – thanks to its ergonomic shape, light weight and ideal flow-rate, it is a perfect fit for any athlete, who knows the true value of full focus.

This is where you come in. We are here on Kickstarter because we need your support to buy the tools and materials for our first production run. Help us bring the world's first squeezable metal bottle to life and you will be richly rewarded!

KEEGO comes in 3 colours. You choose your own mix of colours upon shipping.

How can titanium be elastic? The secret behind KEEGO’s functionality lies within the ground-breaking production process, which allows us to add an elastic core to a titanium bottle. The key is to accurately control the fusion process in order to modulate the elasticity according to the amount of stress in different parts of the squeeze bottle. By the way: The Danish company mastering this process is renowned for producing accelerator parts for CERN and other accelerators around the world.

Every evolution is a story of trial and error. It took us some time to find the right technology and a fitting design for our bottle – more or less two years of intense research and testing. In this time our prototypes have come a long way. See for yourself...

Risks and challenges

KEEGO has come a long way: We have a functioning prototype, the contracts with our manufacturers are sewn up and there is a clear and reliable plan for what's coming. Of course, one has to be aware that the production process of a KEEGO bottle is highly scientific and involves dealing with very small tolerances and a lot of variables. So, upscaling the production will come with a lot of challenges. Since we are not willing to sacrifice product quality for quick results, this may result in a delay of the final delivery. But thanks to our highly professional production partners we are convinced the world's first squeezable metal bottle will be delivered to you without any shortcomings.
