MENLO PARK, CA (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — ventureDESIGNworks announces the launch of GEL-BOT, a revolutionary water bottle system for endurance athletes. GEL-BOT is a sports bottle that provides access to both water and energy gel in one container. Perfect for cycling, running, triathlon or any sport that requires extensive refueling, GEL-BOT will help athletes achieve peak performance through proper energy and hydration.

Athletes worldwide agree on the effectiveness of energy gels, but the combination of cumbersome packaging and the immediate need for water makes them difficult to use during activity. With GEL-BOT, athletes can drink water and eat energy gel from one bottle. The gel is housed inside the ENERGY-CORE, a piston-like device attached to the water bottle cap that is filled with gel before activity.

To eat the gel, simply squeeze the bottle with the cap valve pressed in. To drink water, pull out the valve and squeeze, just like any standard water bottle. No more fumbling with foil packets and leaky gel flasks, and no more having to slow down to refuel. GEL-BOT allows for quick consumption of gel and water during any sport. It’s great for cycling, running, adventure racing, triathlon, nordic skiing-or even at the gym.

GEL-BOT is a must-have for any athlete looking to take endurance-sport performance to the next level. This system is designed to work with any energy gel, in any weather condition, and is easy to use and clean. GEL-BOT holds up to 24 ounces of water and 3.2 ounces of energy gel.

GEL-BOT is available through and at sports equipment retailers nationwide. This is the third product released by ventureDESIGNworks, a privately held company that designs innovative, user-focused products and services. Check out for news, more information and other cutting-edge products.
