B$Z: The Bike Cooperative Adds Polar Bottle As New Supplier Partner

The Bike Cooperative has added insulated water bottle innovators Polar Bottle to its growing network of supplier partners.  Through this new partnership with the Colorado-based manufacturer, members of The Bike Co-op will now earn rebates on their purchases of Polar Bottle-branded water bottles.

Bike Cooperative vice president of operations Carl Michelakos said, “Polar Bottle is a company we admire and we’re excited to have them as our newest supplier partner.  Polar Bottle developed a product unlike anything else in the market and are now a leader in hydration, yet they haven’t forgotten where they came from.  Polar Bottle products are still American made, and they remain extremely committed to philanthropy and advocacy in the cycling community where they got their start.” 

Polar Bottle national sales manager Phil Bash added, “Working with The Bike Cooperative’s network of quality independent bike retailers is a great opportunity.  The Polar Bottle brand started with our founders, who are avid cyclists, travelling and selling to local bike shops.  We’re looking forward to a mutually beneficial partnership and building new relationships with Bike Co-op members.”
