As a competitive athlete you constantly set yourself ambitious goals and don’t accept any compromises on the journey to reach them. Energy supply, along with hydration and recovery, is key to reaching your potential. For intense training or competition you should refuel during sport with up to 90g carbohydrates per hour depending on intensity and duration. PowerGels ORIGINAL are convenient during sport due to their compact pack size, no need to chew and a scientifically developed combination of different carbohydrate sources – pro-athletes classic choice since 1996.
C2MAX Dual Source Carb Mix contain a special ratio of glucose and fructose sources.
With sodium, the main electrolyte lost through sweat.
Black Currant and Green Apple flavours contain 50mg caffeine per serve.
Consume up to 90g carbohydrates per hour during sport depending on the intensity and duration. 1 PowerBar PowerGel delivers about 27g carbohydrates.
Always consume with a minimum of 150 ml water.
In addition to a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Flash92 Great source of energy but pricey
Bought just one sachet of the vanilla flavour and tastes just like vanilla. A great pick me up. Didn't upset my tummy at all but not sure what it will be like after constant use. The one main problem is price. Too expensive in my eyes. Maybe if the amount of gel was doubled per sachet then it would be justifiable.

Good boost for a short period of time though. Over a longer period I would use an energy powder as it costs less and lasts longer.

For short periods of efforts such as during the last hr of a century it boosts your performance. Using it as sole energy source it destroys your GI-system - bloating to say the least - as experienced on 30hrs, 50,000 vertical feet, 350mls ultra race.

Really didn't like the Vanilla flavour - stay well clear! I normally like Vanilla but this made me want to throw up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Gives a boost
Having used the Gel on my long ride yesterday it gave me a good boost when I was feeling a little low on energy so I can't fault it on that. However, for something I would take quite regularly in a race its simply too sweet and strong tasting. Maybe it's just the flavour I used (Black currant)
