Considering you are also getting the caffeine content as well then this makes a really good buy considering the price is lower than the standard gel. Great for during a long distance event to give you that extra boost. Very easy to swallow to.Report this review
Nice-tasting energy gel, easy to consume, delivered in a small sachet and providing good performance benefits.....in my experience a little bit of caffeine does wonders at strategic points during a hilly 100-mile sportive, and studies by proper sport scientists have found the same effect. It might be imagination, but the boost from these 'Plus' gels seems to be almost instantaneous as well, such that I can see a big hill half a mile down the road, grab a sachet from my jersey back pocket, neck it, then have the legs to attack like a Schleck when the gradient starts to steepen. Okay, a lot of that increased performance is definitely my imagination but at least part seems thanks to the caffeine-enhanced gel.Report this review
very effective.. body absorbs it quickly and you will feel the difference. took 1 sachet per hour + half bottle of water to dissolve the taste. I finished a double century and I did not feel sore..
I have problems eating when going out on the bike but this gets me through when the going is getting particularly hard. It gets me over the lumpier rides.
Although I am sure that some of the effects are psychological, I really find that it gives me a boost when I need it and allows me to stay out longer and train harder.
It doesn't upset my stomach and although it is a bit like eating jam, it isn't too bad considering the benefits it provides. Not advisable if you don't have something to wash it down with though.
just like other gels in terms of energy gained. the difference is in the liquid consistency making them very easy to get down quick. the flavors where good and on par with other brands. This has to be one of my favorites cause i don't have to fight with it trying to get it down while i in the middle of a group. just rip open and drink it down.Report this review
I use these gels near the end of the bike in an Olympic distance or during the run in a half ironman and it always gives me the extra boost I need to keep the intensity high. Tastes good tooReport this review
The taste is not so good as the taste of same gel without caffeine but the refreshment of the caffeine does the trick. However, caffeine during an exercise would not suit for all. Easy to take using just one hand during race.Report this review
Cheaper than many brands, not as thick (good!) and more subtly flavoured. Larger packet than some like Gu but convenient enough and easy to bite into on the bike. Good amount of caffeine (30mg).Report this review
It works very well providing a somewhat lasting burst of energy and the orange flavour is great. Very good value.Report this review
Bought 2 of each flavour for a trip I went on, Tried one of every flavour and only the raspberry tasted nice. Worked well though, the caffeine boost is noticeable.Report this review
