Inspired by Elite Road Runners
Meet the Tempo squeeze bottles, a durable, ergonomic product collection designed to help runners build effective hydration strategies. Influenced by the fueling habit and product preferences of top marathoners, HydraPak created the Tempo as a sleek, lightweight training and race day bottle that is coded for key phases of fueling – hydrating, energizing and recovering. We believe the Tempo will help address underfueling, a core performance issue in the sport, by encouraging runners of every level to plan for adequate hydration before, during and after exercise.
“When our trusted partners — athletes, nutrition experts and coaches — sound the alarm on a performance-related issue, we listen,” said HydraPak President & CEO Matt Lyon. “Our goal is that the Tempo shifts behavior around hydration so that less runners feel the negative physical, mental and performance effects of underfueling. In design, this bottle takes notes from what the best in the world prefer in shape, size and weight. In concept, we’re hoping to help everyone from first-time runners to competitive athletes understand the importance of fueling before, during and after running, just like the pros.”
The Tempo was specifically designed for runners training for and competing in long distances. Distinct bottle colors represent the different phases of nutrition before, during and after exercise to help athletes develop their specific hydration strategy. Additionally, the color-coded bottles support habit forming and easy identification while racing or training.
The Tempo’s three-tiered approach is complemented by its performance-driven design, tested and approved by HydraPak’s athlete partners. Constructed of single-wall polypropylene with a soft-squeeze, ergonomic grip-groove, the Tempo is lightweight, comfortable to hold and made to last. A 42-millimeter opening allows for ice cubes and mixes, and HydraPak’s patented, leakproof Fast Flow sport cap can be opened by hand or mouth.
