Using a Bite Valve makes you drink more. 24% more to be precise – as has been proven in scientific research. But how does a Bite Valve work? Let us explain and show you what makes the SOURCE Helix Bite Valve unique.
You bite, you drink – sounds quite simple; but there’s more to it. A bite bite valve features a soft (silicone) cap, which in default position seals the mouthpiece. Upon a light bite on the soft part of the valve, the valve is deformed in a way that water can pass and allows you to drink.
While holding the mouthpiece with your lips, hands-free drinking is made possible during any activity.
For Hands Free Drinking
The perfect bite valve lets you drink with only a soft bite, gives you just enough flow, and seals 100% leak-proof as soon as you let go – meet our SOURCE Helix Bite Valve (pictured).
Some models like our SOURCE Helix include an additional, manual lock for when the bladder or bottle is not in use, so as not to release any liquid in case the valve is squeezed.
You might not think about it too much, but the level of ease the water in your bladder is made available for drinking actually matters. This depends hugely on the choice of drinking valve (we also offer a push-pull valve, ideal for freezing cold).
Full Flow With A Soft Bite
You’d like to hear about some more advantages of our Helix?
Thanks to its cylindrical form, the angled Helix Bite Valve does not require any specific mouth-orientation and enables intuitive, handsfree drinking.
The angled shape of the Helix Bite Valve lets you drink more comfortably and allows for a significantly shorter drinking tube, which makes storing it more convenient. All these elements amount to a fuss-free and easy drinking experience.
And most importantly: the Helix Bite Valve offers full water flow at a soft bite of the valve, and shuts off automatically via a retreat spring mechanism which prevents leaking even under heavy pressure.
100% Leak Proof – Also Under Pressure
The twist shut-off mechanism seals the bladder during transport. Also included as a standard: the dirt shield keeps the valve free from dirt, sand and dust and protects the silicon cap. The easy assembly and disassembly process makes it easy to clean the Helix Bite Valve.
SOURCE hydration bladders are the first choice among pro-athletes, hikers, runners, bikers, snowboarders – in short, whoever is active in nature. Not only our SOURCE Hydration Technologies make them the best in the market; the sophisticated SOURCE Helix Bite Valve is part of this success story as well.
