Competitive or not, anyone appreciates a good bottle.

Ever wonder about the significance of the three-dot logo that banners our hallowed halls? Each of the dots represents one of the three original founders of CC back in Little Rock, Ark. — Brendan Quirk, Craig Zediker, and Hap Seliga — three gentleman who not only work hard, but still ride hard, day in and day out, living and breathing the sport and their company's name.

Oh yeah, the water bottle: The 22-ounce Purist Competitive Cyclist Water Bottle is called the Purist, and it's USA-made using a low-density polymer that makes it freezer-friendly and enhances grip. The interior of the bottle, after being molded, gets a 5-nanometer-thick application of silicon dioxide, an inert compound that not only prevents plastic from slowly leeching into the bottle over time, even after washes, but also eliminates that funky water bottle taste we all dread. It's like a pure glass cup in the form of a rough-and-tumble water bottle that happens to look great with those dots on it, too.

Great Bottles

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Made in the USA, holds 22oz of water, and is easy to grab out of the cage while riding. What more could you want from a bottle? Love these!

Great bottle, sticker beyond annoying.

    It's a fine water bottle, like Purist bottles with other logos. But if the point of a Purist bottle is how clean it is, why would CC slap a big paper sticker on each and every one. The two bottles I received had brittle stickers that immediately came apart, leaving me to fight the glue patch. So, day 1 with the purist bottle involves rubbing it down with petroleum products.


      The bottle does the job. The bottle comes with a sticker that does not peel off cleanly, it was annoying to remove the sticker and remove the sticker residue.

      Sweet Bottles

      Specialized Purist bottles rock. I'm all about repping the Goat/CC logo out on the road and trails!

      Good to the last drop

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Stylish and functional while representing the company I believe in.

      Purist for the purists

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Purist bottles are hands down the best water bottles on the market, partner that with the cool yet understated Competitive Cyclist graphics and you have a winner.

      Simply the Best

        This is my favorite water bottle for all the same reasons as everyone else. The silicon dioxide interior finish. And Made in the USA.

        But I can still get some mold at the bottom (in the corners) if I am not careful -if I don't rinse out and dry the bottle right after my ride. And only put water or Scratch mix inside. (No recovery protein mixes! Use a blender bottle for that.)

        In sum: rinse your Purist bottle immediately after every ride and air dry, or wash in the top rack of dishwasher and air dry. In bad cases, use a tab of Polident to clean.

        Fits my bike

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I needed a bottle that would fit the limited space in my Mtn bike frame and this fit the bill. It also works well with my Dakine hot laps lumbar pack, no need for a full camelback on my local trails.

        Good Small Bottle

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Only downfall is simply what is it not: a large bottle. It washes well, looks good, and can get water down your gullet in a very quick manor

        Simply Perfect

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        No bells and whistles this bottle is perfect. Easy to clean and a soft (?) end spout.

        no bs water bottle

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        holds water, yes
        leaks, no
        easy one handed operation, yes
        really easy to use, no bs lid water bottle.

        Clearly this is a good bottle

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I love this bottle, not only do I get to rep the best online retailer of bike goods but the bottle is clear and that makes me happy so I know if I am reaching for a bottle with drink mix or a bottle of water. It is a Specialized Purist water bottle so it works and doesn't taste funky and is easy to squeeze. FYI, The lid cap is not the one pictured, it is actually the newer cap.

        Best bottle for the $$$$

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Love the new nipple design and very happy with how my water tastes from these. Like the soft feel and compact shape of this product.

        Unanswered Question

        Does anyone know how long this water bottle is?

        No leaks!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Love these bottles! Most cheaper bottles leak quite a bit...not these, and no nasty plastic taste in my H2O !!! Highly recommend !

        Great at Great price

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Does exactly what it's supposed to! Doesn't drip, easy to open/close. Bought those to complete an order for free shipping.

        The best bottle

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        A bottle isn't high-tech. But a necessary item. These are the best.
