Avoid Dehydration While Riding With Hydration Systems and Motorcycle Gear From BTO Sports

THOUSAND OAKS, CA--(Marketwire - September 28, 2010) - BTO Sports, the leader in dirt bike and motorcycle gear, has released new tips on remaining hydrated to ensure peak performance while riding motorcycles.

"Dehydration can make you feel dizzy, confused and fatigued, resulting in an easily avoidable crash. You can keep hydrated simply and conveniently with new advances in hydration technology such as the hydration packs on our site," said a BTO Sports representative. "These strap on your back and contain a water reservoir with a straw leading out of it so you can continually drink from it, even while riding."

BTO Sports has a wide variety of hydration packs and systems for men, women and children from top brands like CamelBak, Fly, Ogio, Oneal and Thor. Most hydration packs will hold at least 70 ounces of water. Many also include waist belts for a secure fit, and include pockets and internal organizers for smaller gear.

"Whatever you use, whether it's a hydration pack or a water bottle in your gear bag, just make sure you stay properly hydrated," said the BTO Sports representative. "We've all heard the old rule: eight glasses of water a day, but you actually may need more or less water depending on your body size. A better rule to remember is to take your weight in pounds and divide it by two for the number of ounces of water you should be drinking every day. So if you weigh 140 pounds, you should be drinking 70 ounces of water every day."

The hydration packs at range from the CamelBak Classic hydration pack available for $44.99 to more versatile systems with storage compartments, like the Ogio Baja Hydration Pack available for $89.99.
