MOBOT is the world’s first and most portable trigger point foam roller that doubles as a reusable water bottle. You can drink and roll where ever your next adventure takes you!

Foam rolling helps your muscles relax, increase circulation and aid recovery. To roll, sip some water, close the lid tight, lie on top of your MOBOT, and roll slowly back and forth on muscles.

See our HOW TO guides for the best areas to target with your MOBOT, along with handy tips and tricks to get the most out of your new favorite water bottle. Your MOBOT can used while full or empty and has been tested for up to 350 lbs. 

Your MOBOT is your personal, on-demand massage therapist and coolest looking water bottle on earth!

Use it as:

- Foam roller

- A reminder to hydrate + roll away tension

- Yoga block

- Your instant posture corrector at work. Place MOBOT behind your back while seated at your desk to engage your stabilizer muscles and improve breathing and circulation.

Get the most out of your MOBOT: foam roll 1 - 5 mins a day, and carry with you as your reusable water bottle!

See our HOW TO guides for the best areas to target with your MOBOT, and handy tips and tricks. 

Please DO NOT put your MOBOT in the dishwasher, freezer or microwave.

- Dishwasher: While the dishwasher is convenient, we recommend a good old-fashioned solution of diluted vinegar or water with a bit of baking soda and patting down the outside with a wet towel. Use the dishwasher at your own risk.

- Freezer: Liquids expand when they freeze, which could deform or break your MOBOT. If you like your drink cold, add ice.

- Microwave: Additionally, MOBOT is NOT microwave friendly as it is made from 100% recycled stainless steel. Never put metal in the microwave!

Dishwasher, freezer or microwave damage is not covered by the manufacturing one-year warranty.

Definitely! Although water is our drink of choice, you can use MOBOT with juices, shakes, or other liquids thanks to the high quality, food-grade stainless steel. Just make sure you clean it thoroughly afterwards. 

MOBOT is single walled, which means it won’t keep beverages hot or cold for an extended period of time.  Did you know your body digests and consumes room temperature water the best? MOBOT is designed to keep you hydrated the best way possible. 

Fill MOBOT with ice water for a cool rolling experience, or with warm water to create a heated roller. 

Double walled MOBOTs will be released in 2020. Please sign up to our newsletter to be the first to know about new releases!

Yes! Your MOBOT is designed for travel and is 100% TSA friendly. Just make sure to empty it before you get in line – we'd hate for you to lose your place!

MOBOTs are single walled, 100% recycled stainless steel. As a result, there may be sweat from ice cold water if in a hot or humid climate.

Double Walled MOBOTs will be released in 2020, please sign up to our newsletter to be the first to know about new releases.

MOBOT has been tested for up to 350 lb! MOBOT is designed for everyBODY to use. 

It might seem too good to be true, but all of our MOBOTs are adaptable to human bodies of all shapes and sizes. Any size person can roll and drink out of a MOBOT. Like yoga, foam rolling poses can be adjusted for simple to advanced moves based on your body requirements. You can start against a chair or wall, and test out different poses that work for you. 

Our MOBOTs have been created in three sizes, designed to help your individual needs and convenient to carry with you anywhere. All sizes are great to travel with, and work for all over body rolling.

Big Bertha - 40oz: the size that started it all. It's everything you need to roll out your entire body, plus drink 2 a day and you've met your hydration needs.

Grace - 27oz: gives you the ability to roll your entire body with ease and target specific muscles. The smaller diameter is perfect to carry with you as it fits most backpack sleeves and gym equipment. Drink 3-4 a day and you've met your hydration needs.

Firecracker - 18oz: The smallest MOBOT in the range and is great for targeted muscle release that might be harder to access with a larger MOBOT. It's the perfect handbag size and also easy for kids to use (and still able to hold a person up to 350lb)! Drink 5-6 a day and you've met your hydration needs.

MOBOTs are created with high-density foam and are designed to  endure an incredible amount of use to help save our planet from pollution. 

While many foam rollers on the market are made from toxic foam that breaks down quickly, our careful sourcing and handcrafting practices mean your MOBOT is made to last. 

Foam Rolling

Foam rolling helps your muscles relax, increase circulation and aid recovery. You can use foam rolling as your own personal massage and a tool to increase mobility.

When used for self-massage, it helps soothe tight, sore areas (known as ‘trigger points’) to speed up muscle recovery. This process of rolling out tight muscles and relieving tension is also called myofascial release. 

Whether you’re a professional athlete, love a workout, or don’t have the time to workout, foam rolling is for you! It’s first and foremost a pre-habilitation tool that helps you connect to your body and prepare, perform and recover faster from everyday stresses and muscle fatigue. 

Most warm up and cool down routines include static stretching. While this is a great tool for increasing flexibility, it doesn’t work on knots. Imagine a knot tied in a rubber band –  what would happen if you pulled on the band, stretching it out? That knot is probably going to get tighter. It’s definitely not going to get untied. To work that knot, you need to massage it from different angles to find the release. That’s how MOBOT can transform your wellness routine. 

Try it and see what a difference rolling for a couple of minutes a day on a MOBOT can do for you! Think of it as active meditation - slow down, breathe, hydrate and roll.

EveryBODY has tension, stress, and anxiety manifesting into muscles which needs to be released in order to increase blood flow, circulation, and mobility while decreasing stress, soreness, and even cellulite. MOBOT releases and targets troublesome areas better than most recovery tools. Simply put, if you move you should roll. 

Post-workout recovery and pre-habilitation (looking after your body now rather than when it’s hurt!) is so important. MOBOT is designed to travel with you, so you can fit in your recovery when you can (Netflix and roll?).  The added benefit of your MOBOT, is that the benefits of massage and foam rolling are boosted when you are properly hydrated! 

Taking a few moments to slow down and release tension will help your body’s natural repair process.

Yes - everyone has the right to feel good! We firmly believe that everyone can foam roll and needs to stay hydrated. The key is to roll slowly, breathe, and when you reach a point that hurts - stop and hold it. Holding a point of tension, with slight movements side to side, can help release the knot. 

We recommend anyone under the age of 10 be supervised while using a MOBOT. Please use caution if you are pregnant, recovering from an injury or medical condition, or are using medication. If you have a serious injury or poor health, please consult a physician first. We do not recommend using a MOBOT (unless otherwise approved by your physician) if you have an acute soft tissue or bony injury, musculature involved in significant trauma, a bone disorder (osteopenia, osteoporosis), bleeding or blood clotting disorders, any nerve disorder or symptoms, or any infection or skin disorder. Please note that this list is just a general guideline of who should and shouldn't roll. If you have any uncertainty, please consult a physician first.

How much time do you have? :)

If you’re new to foam rolling, try starting with 1 to 5 minutes a day. The more you do, the better you will feel, and the more you will want to foam roll. We believe you should roll every day for around 10 - 15 mins. Taking any time for yourself and your health will always be beneficial. 

See our HOW TO guides for the best areas to target with your MOBOT, plus tips and tricks to get the most out of your foam rolling session. 

You can foam roll anywhere - at the gym, park, watching TV, at your desk, in bed - so many opportunities during the day! If you’re an athlete, have injuries or other specific needs, or are just unsure, please ask your healthcare professional about tailoring a program specifically for you.

MOBOT foam rollers are made using high-density, non-toxic EVA foam – so they are extra firm. This may result in temporary impressions on the skin (as you would get with anything that compresses your tissues a bit).  If you get them after a rolling session, rock them with pride –  these are lines of love. Being properly hydrated helps prevent lines (and your MOBOT has you covered here too)!

If you already have a foam roller, ask yourself – do you use it? Where is it now? Can you travel with it? Does your foam roller fit conveniently into your gym bag? 

MOBOT is built for convenience, travel and hydration. The two-in-one nature is great for tangible motivation, and you can travel with it anywhere. It’s a helpful reminder to drink water and foam roll! MOBOT's three sizes means you can roll out your entire body, and also target specific areas that traditional foam rollers can’t reach.

MOBOT foam rollers are made using high-density, non-toxic EVA foam.  They are extra firm, and the nodules are made to work like fingers for trigger point release. 

MOBOTs have been created in three sizes, designed to help your individual needs and convenient to carry with you anywhere. All sizes are great to travel with, and work for all over body rolling. 

Big Bertha - 40oz: The size that started it all. It's everything you need to roll out your entire body, plus drink 2 a day and you've met your hydration needs.

MOBOT foam rollers are made using high-density, non-toxic EVA foam – so they are extra firm. The good news is that this means it will last a long time, and over time your body will adjust to the firmness. Good for your body and good for the planet! 

It can depend on your threshold for sensation, and most people do say foam rolling “hurts so good”. If you’re new to foam rolling, please use caution. It’s normal to feel some intensity as long as it doesn’t exceed your tolerance levels.

 

When targeting sore or tight muscles, rolling can be uncomfortable. Here are a couple of guides to follow: 

1) MOBOTs are firm rollers to activate deep tissue. If you're new, we recommend starting by wearing thicker clothing to soften the massage, even a soft carpet will help. Over time, your muscle tension decreases, and in no time you'll be rolling like a pro. 

2) Slow down and BREATHE! When you slow down and take your time to breathe, you're allowing your muscles to relax –  which is ultimately what you are trying to achieve while using the MOBOT. 

3) If there is a muscle that is too tight to roll directly on top of, move your MOBOT half an inch lower or use a different angle. This will help release the tension in that tight muscle until you are able to roll on top. 

4) Routine is key. Make it part of your daily life, just like brushing your teeth. By rolling once a day (even for 1 minute) your body will start to adjust.

General

Creating a product that was as good for the planet as it is for the body was so important when creating MOBOT.

Your MOBOT is:

- 100% recycled stainless steel

- BPA free

- Non-toxic EVA foam

- Silent sip straw

MOBOT is the world's most portable, eco-friendly foam roller. 

MOBOT was created in Australia, designed in Venice California, and handcrafted in Asia. All our factories are ISO approved. We pride ourselves on having the highest standards in the industry when it comes to quality, materials, and happy, healthy team members — no matter where in the world, they are MOBOT family. We visit all our locations regularly to make sure these standards are not only being met, but exceeded.

With the planet in mind, we pride ourselves on almost zero plastic in our packaging. Your MOBOT comes in a recyclable box, with a tag around the neck of the bottle. That's it! #YoureWelcomePlanet

MOBOT comes in 3 convenient sizes:

Big Bertha: 40oz | 1.2 L weighs 13.7 oz empty and just under 2lbs when full 

Grace: 27oz | 0.8 L weighs 11 oz empty and around 1.5lbs when full 

Firecracker: 18oz | 0.5 L weighs 10.5 oz and  just under 1lbs when full

The foam is not able to be removed. One of the standout qualities of a MOBOT is that our foam is heat-pressed directly onto the steel, which means the foam will stay on forever! The foam itself is high-density, non-toxic EVA foam, which means it’s designed with longevity in mind to keep you rocking and rolling daily.

Caps & Lids

We have two lids currently available. 

The first is our spout lid + silent sip strawthat comes standard with every MOBOT, as well as sold separately if replacements are required. Designed for silent and slow sipping. Water is best consumed in small amount over time giving your body time to digest without depleting it, which is why our spout lid is ideal for all your #HydrationGoals. Additionally, with the spout lid, you won’t have to toss your head back and chug for dear life, which is also better for your spine. 

We also offer a 100% recycled stainless steel screw top lid, if you do prefer to drink from the wide mouth of the MOBOT bottle. 

Of course! We offer both lids to be purchased separately here.  

No need to fear! Each replacement lid comes with a straw! Purchase one here.  

CARE & CAUTION

Cleaning

Like most other sports water bottles, a MOBOT has a wide mouth to make cleaning super easy. We recommend a good old-fashioned solution of diluted vinegar or water with a bit of baking soda = eco-friendly bottle plus eco-friendly cleaning! We don’t recommend putting your MOBOT in the dishwasher. 

For more details on how to care for you MOBOT, check out our Care Guide.

Caution

Cleaning and maintenance are essential to longevity for anything in life – the same goes for your MOBOT! Please wash and take care of you MOBOT as you would for anything you love. Because rolling is mostly done on the floor, the foam may pick up dirt – nothing a good bath can’t fix!

MOBOTs are constructed of heavy-gauge #304 (18/8) stainless steel that has outperformed all other bottles in independent tests. However, drops may occur and a dent is possible. So like anything you own and care about, treat it nicely. Your one-year warranty covers manufacturer's defects only, not damage caused by use. If you do happen to dent your MOBOT, the bottle is still perfectly safe to use and will nearly always be functional!
