Why Use a Hydration Pack When Cycling or Motorcycling?
As avid cyclists and motorcyclists know, hydration is critical. Traditional hydration methods can interrupt your ride, be it water breaks or struggling with a water bottle while on the move. That's where the IMS Sport, the perfect motorcycling and cycling hydration pack, steps in. It offers a hands-free, on-the-go hydration system that allows you to maintain pace and concentration, making a significant difference in your training and competition outcomes.
Furthermore, the hydration pack design promotes a more balanced weight distribution compared to carrying a water bottle, reducing strain and muscle fatigue during long rides. The convenience of having a sip tube within reach means you're more likely to drink regularly, preventing dehydration and enhancing your overall performance. These cumulative benefits make the IMS Sport an indispensable part of any cyclist or motorcyclist's gear. It's a tool that doesn't just make your ride more comfortable, but also helps enhance your performance by ensuring your body remains hydrated and primed for action.
We understand that there are tons of motorcycle and cycling hydration packs out there. So, why should you pick the IMS Sport? A few key features set this hydration backpack apart.
- Full compatibility with the revolutionary ICEPLATE®. Now, the water you're already carrying can either cool you off or warm you up.
- Ability to create a ventilated, hydrophobic, and anti-microbial microclimate when combined with our ICEVENTS® Classic Ventilation Pontoons.
- Made from our proprietary ICEPLATE EXO® laminate, IMS Sport provides unrivaled durability while remaining extremely lightweight.
- Elastic hood pocket provided extra space for necessities like gels, bars, phones, or whatever you need.
- Laser-cut Negative MAPs let you add the MOLLE-compatible accessories you need for shorter or longer rides
Great for Outdoor Recreational and Work Sites
Been using this product for over a month and living and working outdoors in 110+ degree weather I can take comfort in knowing my core temperature is still in the green and as the ice melts I am able to have chilled water while on breaks. This product has made my work environment more tolerable and is an invaluable item for your safety in high heat environments.
My first ice plate product. I used it to go to outdoor events and also washing my car at night when it is hot outside in the summer. I did get another Helix bite valve instead of the Storm valve that it came with. I also got a hydration tube magnetic clip also from Source Tactical. I did have to take a few tries to figure out where to put the chest strap height wise as I do have muscular pecs and needed a compromise of where the strap isn’t choking my neck , but it’s not squeezing the shoulder straps on my man boobs. It’s a strange feeling because ice plate and bag doesn’t feel Cold to the body, but I know I am not sweating in the heat. So somehow it is working. Only thing is if they also can sell the chest straps separately as an accessory because I think unclipping and clipping them over time might break the clips eventually. I also got it with the classic ventilation pontoons, I didn’t think it felt all that comfortable with it (felt rough) even when wearing a shirt on the body. I’ll save the pontoons for when I get the plate carrier
Perfect Solution for General Aviation
Flying small planes in the summer is essentially voluntarily strapping yourself into a fast moving oven with the added benefit of the sun beating down on you. A/C is usually too heavy or expensive for most small planes and alternatives are very few. The IMS sport is the perfect low profile cooling solution. Even with 98° +80% FL humidity the Ice Plate keeps you comfortable. The contour of the plate makes it comfortable to wear even on long flight and gives me more water than I can reasonably carry in a water bottle. Even in my unusual use case it works perfectly.
IMS Sport combo
Absolutely a mission/performance enhancer. This allows you to rev higher in hot weather and stay cooler without red lining and cooking your core temp.
How Does ICEPLATE® Work?
The unique functionality of our IMS Sport hydration pack is backed by our proprietary ICEPLATE® technology. The ICEPLATE is an innovative hydration bladder that doubles as a cooling and heating device. Filled with water and frozen for cooling or filled with warm water for heating, it sits against your body, controlling your core temperature, enhancing performance and reducing the risk of heat-related conditions.
You're already carrying water. Why not have that water work for you by keeping your body temperature regulated. The best part is that you get all of this without having to add extra weight to your load. ICEPLATE® combined with IMS Sport creates a competitive advantage where none previously existed.

Staying Hydrated While Cycling or Motorcycling
In endurance sports such as cycling and motorcycling, the significance of staying hydrated cannot be overstated. Water is essential for a myriad of body functions, from regulating body temperature to aiding muscle contractions and lubricating joints. Without adequate hydration, these vital functions can become compromised, leading to performance decline.
Dehydration can result in a host of issues. Initial symptoms might include fatigue and reduced energy levels, which can severely hamper your performance and endurance. As dehydration worsens, more serious complications such as heat exhaustion or heat stroke can occur, both of which can be life-threatening.
This is why the IMS Sport hydration pack is so critical. It provides an easily accessible, continuous source of hydration, ensuring that you don't need to compromise your ride or safety for a drink of water. With our hydration pack, you can replenish your body's water levels and regulate your temperature as you ride, keeping fatigue at bay and maintaining your performance.
