Nalgene Outdoor Products, a manufacturer of reusable water bottles, and USA Cycling, a 501(c3) member-based organization that is the official governing body for all disciplines of competitive cycling in the United States, are collaborating for the 2017/18 racing season.

At the cornerstone of the partnership is Nalgene’s Draft fitness bottle that will be co-branded and given exclusively to 2017/18 USA Cycling National Championship participants. A series of co-branded Nalgene products will also be available for purchase.

“For nearly 50 years Nalgene Outdoor has provided a durable and reliable reusable water bottle for a variety of outdoor activities,” said Eric Hansen, director, Nalgene Outdoor Products. “We’re thrilled to partner with USA Cycling to integrate Draft – a bottle we designed for cyclists – into professional cycling and provide a lightweight and versatile Nalgene bottle for top-tier athletes and cycling enthusiasts alike.”

The 2017/18 USA Cycling National Championships are a series of road, mountain, track and BMX races that will occur between January 2017 and October 2018. For a full schedule of events, visit
