CRIO - Follows you everywhere!
We designed the bottle to be more than a bike bidon, but a bottle you can take everywhere. It is to be used in every aspect of your daily life.
CRIO - FOR ALL YOUR WATER NEEDS
WHAT IS CRIO?
A revolutionary new super-insulated 600ml BPA free water bottle, invented by a South Australian pair, has launched on Kickstarter, featuring cutting edge insulation previously used by NASA, Formula 1, NASCAR & V8 Supercar teams.
This product is a world-first in the use of high tech super-insulant in a water bottle for cycling and all other sports, which will maintain the temperature of your liquids, cool or warm (depending on the time of year and temperature you put in) for previously unachievable timeframes.
The key is a material called Cryogel - a lightweight insulating material, allowing for a significant reduction in thickness, whilst providing maximum thermal stability and minimising thermal conductivity.
WHO ARE WE?
We are manufacturers of high end fitness equipment with an entrepreneurial flavour. It has been our dream to produce a product like "CRIO" for many years. Until recently it has always been something we would get to when we had time! So here we are with a product that we are very proud of and what better way to launch a cutting edge new product design than to place it on Kickstarter?
HOW DID IT COME TOGETHER YOU ASK?
At the start of the project, we contacted Blake Witherow of Toil and Prosper. Blake has worked for Fi'zi:k in Italy and travelled to America to learn the art of custom bike frame building. We developed the initial brief to help Blake commence concept drawings and turn our dreams into reality. Prototypes were constructed to test the efficacy of Cryogel insulation. 3D printed bottles were made to explore colours, graphics and functionality.
Three prototype bottles were made using 3D printing to allow us to experiment with colours and dimensions. Being able to see the graphic options on the bottle was a great milestone.
CRIO Bottle is not just your ordinary bottle. This highly sophisticated bottle has been designed for optimal performance, ease of use and versatility. The CRIO bottle has a lifetime guarantee.
Superior Cryogel Insulation.
CRYOGEL Insulation material is a unique composite used in NASA space suits as well as NASCAR, F1 racing and V8 Supercar racing in Australia.
One-way proprietary valve technology.
We have specially designed a one-way valve system, which we can't show in full details yet. Combined with a proprietary locking mechanism that will prevent the bottle from leaking.
The rubberised gripper will make it easy to grab your bottle on the go or from your bottle cage. The gripper also ensures a stronger grip to your bottle cage while riding on cobblestones, rough terrain or even in your backpack.
Perfect Volume for any activity.
We researched the optimal amount of water required for a 60 min moderate intensity workout in 20 degree Celsius climate, and most research points towards 300ml of fluid for every 30 min.
*This is obviously subject to intensity, climate, body weight and level of fitness*.

A BOTTLE FOR THE AGES.
ONE STOP BOTTLE!!
We are avid bike riders so Initially we wanted a bottle for when out on the bike, but it has become much more than a bike 'bidon'. It is a universal bottle that will fit into any activity, or as your preferred water vessel on the road or in the office.
CRIO aims to become the leader in insulated products. Combining conscientious/diligent/meticulous design principles, seamless functionality and quality manufacturing processes.
WE WILL CONTACT YOU AFTER THE CAMPAIGN IS FINALISED (EARLY NOVEMBER) TO REQUEST THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION:

Risks and challenges
This isn't our first attempt at manufacturing product to a strict timeline . We've brought a range of fitness equipment to life in the past, and have learned countless lessons from our experiences. While we have been unwavering in our concern with the details throughout designing, prototyping, and planning for production, there is always the chance that we could oversee something or that something doesn't quite go to plan.
In the event that things don't go as planned, whether it's a delay in the manufacturing process, shipping date, or some other mishap, we promise to communicate openly with you and to work 24/7 to fix the problem.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
