USA Bobsled/Skeleton and Slate Milk announce partnership through 2022

Feb 01, 2021

USA Bobsled/Skeleton (USABS) announced today a partnership with Slate Milkas an official supplier through June 2022. Slate Milk made a childhood favorite, chocolate milk, even better. With 17g of protein, 75% less sugar than regular chocolate milk, all natural ingredients, and essential vitamins, the lactose free Slate Milk drinks can be shamelessly chugged at any time of the day.

“We here at Slate think of ourselves as a collection of everyday people, teaming up to pursue a dream,” said Slate Milk Co-Founder Manny Lubin. “That dream is to create the best, most loved beverages in the world. When we connected with USABS, it was immediately clear that each individual athlete associated with their team shares the same drive and passion, and are going to do whatever it takes to achieve their dream. We were blown away by their tireless work ethic, and dedication to perfecting their craft. We couldn't be more excited to be fueling USABS through 2022." 

Bobsled and skeleton athletes received Slate Milk in Lake Placid, N.Y. to help them refuel and recover during team selection races. Studies have shown that chocolate milk is ideal for helping the body rebuild muscle and rehydrate after exercise. Slate Milk also packages their products in 100% recyclable aluminum cans and is a certified Plastic Neutral business.

“I really enjoy Slate Milk because the taste is unreal,” said 2018 Olympic bobsledder Carlo Valdes. “All the flavors are great, it’s lactose free, and it’s very easy to crack one open after a workout to feed the muscles. Also, shotgun for instant gains!”

“We are excited to welcome Slate Milk to our family of partners,” said USABS CEO Aron McGuire. “Slate Milk tastes great, is healthy, and provides our athletes with essential nutrients to get stronger, faster, and more powerful as they work tirelessly towards achieving their goals every day. We’re also really excited to partner with a company that cares about sustainability by using recyclable aluminum cans.”

In addition to providing products to USABS athletes, USABS fans receive a 15% discount on Slate Milk products when using code “USABS15” at Slate Milk comes in three flavors: dark chocolate, classic chocolate, and espresso chocolate.
