Entry Description

The Ergo Hydration Belt rethinks wearable hydration from the ground up. To reduce bounce and perceived weight, the water bottles are ergonomically curved to match the body’s natural shape, allowing them to be positioned closer to the runner's center of gravity. The streamlined, tailored belt holds the bottles snugly against the body, while still allowing quick, no-fuss access to the bottles.

The resulting Ergo Belt feels lighter and bounces less, with a more streamlined and aerodynamic look, so runners can go further with more comfort and style.
