In 1989, bicycle enthusiast Michael Eidson created the first hands-free hydration system when he filled an IV bag with water, slipped it into a white tube sock and put it into the back of his bike jersey. It took courage, conviction and imagination to evolve from this over the years and our core values remain the same, allowing us to become the the world's leading maker of hydration systems.

An idea born from the most basic human need - Thirst

It's 1988.
 
Bicycle enthusiast, Michael Eidson, is competing in the "Hotter'N Hell 100." And that's exactly what it is: a 100-mile road race in the grueling summer heat of Wichita Falls, Texas there are few places to refill a water bottle. Eidson, an emergency medical technician by trade, decides to fill an IV bag with water and slip it into a white tube sock. Then he stuffs the contraption into the back of his bike jersey, throws the thin hose over his shoulder and clamps it with a clothespin.
 
Hands-free hydration is born. And Eidson is able to drink as he pedals... while the other racers laugh and fiddle with their water bottles.
 
It took courage, conviction and imagination to evolve from an IV bag in a tube sock sold by a motorcycle-driven sales force of one. Our core values remain the same and drive everything we do - from inventing the hydration category to becoming the world's leading maker of hydration solutions.
