Hydrapak Develops Running Specific Line of Collapsible Hydration Products


Oakland, CA (June 18th, 2015) From the experts in portable hydration solution comes a new line of thoughtfully-designed running products built to go the distance without weighing you down. The Collapsible Run collection from Hydrapak is built for speed, versatility and is fully customizable for brands and events.

The Collapsible Run SoftFlasks are a new flexible solution for carrying water without the bulk. The line includes four new products; the Ultraflask XL (600ml) and Ultraflask (450ml) both feature caps with drinking tubes and Hydrapak’s blaster bite valve and are designed to be worn in vest pockets for easy hydration while running. The smaller Speedflask (300ml) with bite valve on the cap fits in any pocket and can be used as a handheld. For race events where aid stations are available, the Runners Cup is a collapsible cup designed to be carried by runners and refilled as needed.

“Hydrapak has been at the forefront of innovative hydration solutions for the endurance athlete,” explains Sam Lopez, VP of Product Development, Hydrapak. “The Collapsible Run collection is the combination of Hydrapak design expertise and the feedback we’ve received from runners using collapsible hydration products day in and day out.”

Hydrapak Collapsible Run flasks are the lightest products designed by Hydrapak to date and are built with an ultrathin yet durable .25mm TPU film. Post-and-sheath bite valves ensure leakproof performance and ease of use while on the move. Multiple sizes allow for these flasks to be carried in an athlete's favorite vest, running belt or pack while the design offers decreasing size with every sip. Empty flasks easily tuck into even the smallest shirt or jacket pockets.

In conjunction with the Eiger Ultra Trail, Hydrapak is introducing its new customization capability in the Run line. As a sponsor of Eiger Ultra Trail, Hydrapak and race organizers developed a custom-printed Speedflask for the event to be included in race bags. The customization capability for the SoftFlasks features a printing process that allow event organizers and companies to offer branded Hydrapak products.

The Eiger Ultra Trail is part of the 12 race Ultra-Trail World Tour (UTWT) in partnership with the International Trail Running Association (ITRA). UTWT organizes events on all continents and includes the Ultra-Trail Mont Blanc, Western States 100, and three TNF Endurance Challenge events. The Eiger Ultra Trail E101 course winds, climbs and descends its way by the storied peaks Jungfrau, Monch and Eiger over 101 kilometers and some 6700 meters of elevation gain. Athletes entering the Eiger Ultra Trail are the first to get their hands on the newly designed Speedflask. The new products will be put to the test on one of the most difficult ultras on the circuit.
