What makes the ZIPVIT SPORT ZV7 Energy gel so special?
The first thing you notice about the ZV7 gel is that it packs 51g of carbohydrate energy- typically double that of the competition! By using a special combination of carbohydrates ZIPVIT SPORT gels deliver a powerful shot of high energy carbs which fuel performance for at least half an hour. ZIPVIT SPORT also gets the details right too, including the things you want such as electrolytes for hydration, without the things you don’t — like artificial colours and flavours.
Why is ZV7 superior to other gels?
Scientists now recognise that to maximise energy delivery and performance, mixed carbohydrates sources should be consumed. For example combinations of sucrose, glucose and maltodextrin significantly improve endurance performance relative to pure maltodextrin. What is often overlooked is that around 100 to 120g of carbohydrates must to be consumed every hour to achieve these effects. Many gels use carbohydrate sources that cause stomach upsets, so the serving size has to be kept small. ZIPVIT SPORT uses a proprietary carbohydrate formulation that digests easily; reducing the risk of stomach upsets. This allows you to easily take on board the 100g of carbohydrate needed to maximise performance. The small size of most gels makes it almost impossible to attain this level of carbohydrate intake - and as result performance suffers. That is why ZV7 Energy Gels contain 51g of carbohydrate per serving, so taking just two gels per hour gives the 100g of carbohydrate needed to maximise performance.
How do I get the best results using ZV7 gels?
Take 1 gel per hour during easy to moderate physical activity. Take 2 gels per hour during very intense training or demanding events.
ZV7C CAFFEINE ENERGY GEL takes the highly effective ZV7 Energy Gel formula and ‘supercharges’ it with a synergistic blend of caffeine and Tyrosine. The 160mg of caffeine presses the accelerator pedal, reducing effort during training and racing, while tyrosine puts mental fuel in the tank. Each gel delivers the added kick needed to lift focus, reactions and performance to a different level. The ZV7C Caffeine Energy Gel was developed in collaboration with the world’s best endurance athletes and its unique size is THE standard within the pro peloton.

What makes it different to ZV7?
The Caffeine Energy Gel takes the highly effective ZV7 Energy Gel formula and ‘supercharges’ it with a synergistic blend of caffeine and Tyrosine. Caffeine presses the accelerator pedal and tyrosine puts mental fuel in the the tank. Couple this with 51g of carbohydrates to fuel your muscles and you have a winning formula.
Why 160mg of caffeine?
Each ZV7C gel contains 160mg of caffeine, which is scientifically proven to increase both mental and physical performance. This is coupled with Tyrosine to effectively supercharge your rides!
How many caffeine gels should I take during a ride?
The ZV7C Caffeine gel is a very powerful product, taking 1 gel 90 minutes before the end of a training session or race will give a sustained performance boost. For short races, such as short time trials, track races and criteriums take 1 gel 60 to 90 minutes before competition.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SgpIan Large size gel
This is a big gel packet, noticeably larger than other brands. For long rides when my stomach decides it has had enough solid food, a bigger gel helps and is practical with my jersey pocket capacity.
However, it is a little thick consistency wise for my taste, I prefer something a little lighter - hence 4 /5 rating.
Does it work better or worse than other gels? Honestly, hard to say.

Rated 2 out of 5 by konaman Avoid the cola!!!!
It was very reassuring to read one of the other reviews regarding the cherry cola flavor! i have to echo that guys comments completley! the cherry cola are truely vile! lucky for me i only had the one i got from a sample pack! id be cracking up if id bought a box! that said everything else ive tried from zipvit is bang on the money! although their product is very expensive.. makes you wonder is there a real benefit to these gels and bars..although i think bradley wiggins gave the gels advertisment money couldnt buy when he famously hit the wall on the tour! they have really caught on in the past few years but if your out on a sunday spin a banana or two a mars bar or a few fig rolls will get you home sound!

These are expensive but you do get value if you are pushing yourself to your limit. I definitely felt they helped me through my first 3 100k cycles. The blackcurrant flavour are edible and I do believe they helped when I had hit that 2 hour slump. The difference when I used them to the times I didn't were measurable. Hope this review helps someone there thinking of buying these.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Good Performance, if you dont vom
I agree with all of the posts here about the performance of these gels. I get a noticeable, immediate and long lasting boost from the caffeine gels. However, I got a box of the cherry cola flavor and i cant wait to finish them all because they are so vile that I nearly chuck my load every time i down one.it is a horrible, chemically taste. try a different flavor. I will next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous These gels were recomended by one of the sales assistants as he had used them himself and rated them highly. I have tried most gel brands produced by the leading manafacturers and can honestly say that the Zipvit gels are awesome especially the + caffine varients. Unlike other gels which tend to give a short instant boost they seem to deliver a long slow release of energy which does not spike or trail off and leave you with that bonked feeling. In training for an enduro at the end of the month, after recent training rides I have noticed that I still had the energy to blast that last mile up the hill feeling less drained and fresher than ever. I have no hesitation in recommending what is a great product. Try one and feel the difference I did.

After using almost every other brand of gel available I tried Zipvit Zv7 and was blown away. Unlike the other gels which provide a quick sugar rush followed by a slump in energy levels Zipvit have produced a fantastic product that delivers sustainable energy release without the associated slump.
To heighten concentration and to aid carbohydrate metabolism try the Zv7c caffeine gels.
