The Perfect Drink Tube: Source and Qore Performance team up on tube collaboration for IcePlate® Curve


Sterling, VA: Tired of inadequate drink tubes, Qore Performance® and Source have joined forces to create a custom version of the Source Tactical Drink Tube called the Source 90 Drink Tube, built specifically for IcePlate® Curve. This custom tube combines Source’s best-in class Helix Bite Valve drink tube with a 90 Degree Hard Elbow Qore Performance® created specifically for IcePlate® Curve. “This collaboration is super exciting for us because it delivers everything we want in a hydration tube: low-visibility signature, durability, reliability, and zero tube-kink risk. It really is the perfect drink tube,” said Qore Performance® Co-Founder & CEO, Justin Li.

Qore Performance® released IcePlate® Curve in August 2019, exactly three years after they launched the original IcePlate® Classic in August 2016. IcePlate® Curve is the only hydration system in the world that can deliver four distinct benefits to the user with water they already carry: cooling, heating, hydration, and impact protection. Matching the exact geometry of a Medium ESAPI armor plate, IcePlate® Curve delivers 50oz./1.5L and 70 watts of cooling in an ultra-slim, conformal package designed to minimize profile and boost physiological performance with a nearly indestructible package that can be worn under armor plates, over armor plates, or stand-alone for safety, recreational, and training applications.

A key component to IcePlate® Curve is the IceCap. IceCap, designed and assembled by Qore Performance®, is the Quick Disconnect drink tube interface for IcePlate® Curve that uses the 28-410 thread standard, allowing it to be used on almost any plastic bottle product from Coca-Cola/Dasani in the world, in addition to IcePlate® Curve.

The Source Tactical Drink Tube and Helix Bite Valve are currently standard on all Military and Law Enforcement orders placed with Qore Performance®. They will come standard on all IcePlate® Curves and be available as a stand-alone product starting April 1, 2020. They are available exclusively through Qore Performance’s website.  

Qore Performance, Inc.® is actively enhancing human performance and safety with wearable thermoregulation technology for military, law enforcement and safety professionals everywhere. Their IceAge Ecosystem enhances human physiological performance through thermoregulation under kit and while training. Qore Performance’s solutions were born out of a critical need identified by Co-Founder Justin Li, to improve performance and safety while working as a sworn law enforcement officer in the California desert.

Qore Performance® products are proudly Made in the USA.
