CamelBak is taking on-the-go hydration to a whole new level. New for 2007, CamelBak Products LLC, the world leader in hydration systems, introduces CamelBak Elixir - an electrolyte-enhanced hydration drink that turns water into a more efficient sports drink. Uniquely designed for use with CamelBak hydration systems, it's easy to use, easy to clean, and highly portable. Just one self-mixing, sugar-free tablet dropped into 24 oz (1 liter) of water makes a lemon-lime flavored sports drink that's enhanced with a blend of electrolytes, vitamins and minerals and leaves no sticky residue behind.

The Only Sports Drink Designed for a CamelBak

“As a leader in hydration we are constantly asked by consumers what sports beverage is best to use in a CamelBak Hydration System,” said Mac Tillman, Vice President of Marketing & Product Management at CamelBak. “Elixir is an easy way to stay hydrated with a non-sticky, sugar-free formula that doesn't leave a messy residue inside your reservoir or bottle so it makes cleaning easy and fast.”

CamelBak Elixir: A Smarter, Faster, and More Efficient Way to Hydrate.

Enhanced Hydration: A unique blend of electrolytes, vitamins, and minerals help maintain the body fluid balance needed to keep you going.
Easy to Use: Self-dissolving, effervescent 24 oz. tablet is designed for use with a reservoir system.
Easy to Clean: Has no sugar and eliminates the cleaning hassles of sugary sports drink mixes.
Highly portable: Small, lightweight tube makes for easy hydration on-the-go.
