Meet VelEau. The future of bicycling hydration.
Get the pack off your back
The Showers Pass® VelEau™ 42 is a unique, bicycle-mounted hydration system, designed specifically for mountain, road, triathlon, touring and recreational cycling. The VelEau Hydration System eliminates the need for a cumbersome backpack-style hydration pack; and is a safer and more easily accessible alternative to traditional down-tube mounted bottles.
More water, less hassle
VelEau™ was invented by an engineer and avid cyclist who, as he was preparing for a grueling 100-mile mountain bike race in the heat of summer, was faced with the choice between a single water bottle and a hot and sweaty hydration backpack. He decided to develop something better: 42 ounces of water, with the weight off his back. VelEau 42.
A revolutionary concept
The VelEau™ Hydration System fits securely under the saddle, and employs two patent-pending retractable reels to allow the rider safe, easy access to the hydration tube bite valve. The reels use a tough 3-ply nylon parachute cord, tested to over 180,000 cycles; and two superstrong magnets to automatically return the tube to its proper position. In short: a safer, easier solution
