Elite with a biodegradable water bottle
In the first effort of its kind (that we’re aware of), Elite has created a biodegradable water bottle. The entire 500cc Nature Bottle, including cap and valve, is made from 100 percent biodegradable plastic and will decompose in just one year.
According to Elite, the Nature Bottle is light, easy to use, and retains the same functionality as other bottles offered by the brand, like the Hydra and Cincio models. The biodegradability does not affect the integrity of whatever liquid the bottle contains.
Professional teams sponsored by Elite, commonly use the Hydra and Cincio bottles, but the Cervelo TestTeam chose to debut the Nature Bottle in the Giro d’Italia.
