Bottled from the source of South Morang's spring - the Plenty River.
Granciclismo bidons hold 22oz of liquid, are infused with Purist technology and have a clever opening at the top so you can enjoy your drink without spillage.

Allow me to begin this review by establishing context.
I live in Adelaide. There are many great brands of bottled water in Adelaide and like any subjective assessment of goods, a framework of informed objective qualitative assessment often preceeds allowance for interpretation. In the Adelaide market, Antipodes water is currently the best product available. Any variation in opinion here is only due to poor market knowledge or defective ability to interpret taste and mouthfeel. San Pellegrino reserves an important position due to its history and Italian panache (popular with cyclists for many reasons) and it is important to stress the italophile link here for later.
As a very safe rule of thumb in Adelaide, Italo-centric cafes occupy/saturate the tier two shelf (and below). Italian coffee culture doesn't extend into the modern age of minimalistic cafe with overly complex coffee. Nor should it. It also happens that Italo-style cafes almost irrevocably stock San Pel, however this water can seldom be found in a top tier cafe.
The distinction between these two types of cafes is a perfect analogy for the two major schools of cycling- Or put more bluntly, the middle aged home-to-cafe crowd vs the young new school of (for some reason seemingly wine-centric) cycling enthusiasts.
Upon stuffing bidons with these San Pellegrin-esque bottles, any bike is suddenly transformed into an icon for one of Australia's almost regrettable sub-cultures. I expected that the commodity link here would suit to strengthen the appeal of my early 90's Look however, the opposite is true.
To make matters worse, the green of the bottle is much stronger and brighter than the San Pel original and clashes horribly with the factory lemon yellow of my Look.

Best quality bottles you'll find, great look, excellent feel, almost too good to use. Badass.
