What is special about the ZV8 Energy bar?
The ZV8 Energy bar is a highly acclaimed, class leading, energy bar that is taking the world of cycling by storm. Specially formulated for endurance athletes, it contains multiple carbohydrate sources to maximise energy delivery. These carbohydrates have also been specially selected for easy digestion during exercise.
Why use ZV8 bars during training?
The energy demands of training are rarely as high as racing, but it is still important to use ZIPVIT SPORT energy products. This is because exercise intensity is the primary stimulus for body adaptations that increase oxygen uptake (VO2max) and power. Using ZV8 energy bars in training allows higher exercise intensities to be maintained, helping to increase the stimulus for adaptation and improvement.
How does it work?
ZV8 Energy bars improve performance by providing the body with easily digested carbohydrate energy during exercise. This is achieved without stomach upsets, so you can easily meet your carbohydrate needs and maximise performance. Taken after exercise they also help recovery by speeding up muscle refuelling.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Drewwho Good product, nice taste still a bit sweet though
I started using Zipvit energy bars after finding SIS a bit sickly when consumed in large numbers on long rides. Currently using the apricot versions, still a bit sweet, but taste nice and seem to be keeping the legs going on longer rides.

These are really easy to eat and very tasty. However, they melt in your back pocket in the summer!

Choc and strawberry are delicious. Work well for energy and easy to eat / digest. The orange ones are very granular whilst remaining chewy. Need to be washed down with something. All together top of my let on endurance rides ( 5 hours plus)
