Trek Voda bottle bite piece

My son and I participated in a large community ride out of Lincoln NE this summer. part of our registration was two Voda water bottles. At 6 years old this 15 mile ride was his first experience riding at an event. He has loved the water bottles and was taking one to school each day to drink from. The problem is that he has bit through the rubber tops. I looked on Trek online and Amazon and haven't found a way to just replace the top rubber/silicone without buying a whole new water bottle. Anyone have any ideas or links to new tops for these bottles?

water bottle

broken bottle tops. red lid is fine. Just need the black bite pieces.

Let him participate in more events where he might get more free bottles.

These things aren't intended to last long. And like most things in our consumption based society are just to be used, thrown away and get new.

If he thinks of it as a prize, then just put it on a shelf for display with a picture of him at the finish line, his number he wore and any thing to make it more a trophy.

The construction of the nipple looks more unique to that bottle than those I've used. Perhaps you might find a lid from some other unused bidon that fits if it's the color and wording on the actual bottle that he likes.

Ah, I read that as Trek Vodka bottle, which sounds more interesting -- if less appropriate for a 6 year old.

If that's a screw thread on the lid, I'd suggest taking the bottle down to your LBS to see if they have another water bottle that you can buy and swap lids with. Take the kid, he might find another bottle he likes even more!

I had the exact same experience. My mind is really in the dumpster.
