    Recommended Use:

    Athletes should consume 1-2 SaltStick Caps every hour (with water) for the duration of the activity. In hot conditions, extreme humidity, or for larger athletes, a greater number of capsules may be needed to maintain safe electrolyte levels. SaltStick Caps can also be consumed prior to an activity and to replenish electrolytes during recovery. The maximum number of capsules recommended per day is 10, although athletes in extreme conditions and longer events may find it necessary to exceed this number. It is strongly recommended to test your planned electrolyte protocol in training several times before race day. Many athletes find it convenient to open 1 or 2 capsules into a water bottle, shaking the liquid contents before each drink to ensure that the small amount of insoluble powder is distributed in the water. A small amount of flavoring (sports drink powder or sugarless drink mix) may be added to enhance the taste. Water bottles prepared in this manner should be consumed as prepared, with limited fresh water as additional fluid. A super-concentrate electrolyte solution can be prepared by adding several capsules to water. Usage of the super-concentrate would involve diluting down a small gulp of the concentrate with fresh water. It should be stressed that every athlete sweats differently, reacts to heat and humidity differently, and reacts to the stress of a race or training differently. What this means to the athlete in particular is the importance of testing one's electrolyte replacement strategy in training, prior to race day. Listening to your body prior to and during an event is also key, so you can adapt your electrolyte plan accordingly. Being flexible and keeping your plan simple will give you the best chance of success

    No more plastic baggies!
    November 25, 2013
    I've been using SaltStick tabs since i started biking longer distances (50-100 miles). I've always carried them in a plastic baggie in my jersey - although this method worked, it was slightly inconvenient to try to get a tab without stopping. This dispenser solves that - I installed the dispenser in my road bike drop bars (I used the mini-dispenser) and now I can get to the tabs without stopping. Perfect! The pack comes with a few different ways of installing - if you have longer straight bars (aero-bars or similar) you could probably use the larger 6 tab dispenser. There is also a velcro attachment piece to mount just about anywhere. I prefer the clean look of installing inside the bars however. I highly recommend this dispenser if you use SaltStick tabs.
    Pros:
    Convenience -
    Best Uses:
    Before Workout, During Workout

    The SaltStick dispenser is extremely quick and easy to install. Simply choose the o-ring/rubber washer that best fits the inside diameter of you bars and insert. It's that easy! The dispenser is easy to use while riding or running. The twist cap mechanism is simple and intuitive to use. The dispenser is easy to refill while training, even while riding. If you use the included clip to attach the dispenser to your bike, you can grab the dispenser off your bike when you leave T2 and take it with you on the run. The dispenser even fits in your trisuit pocket and is water/sweat resistant to protect the capsules during your ride or run. Overall, a great product that has greatly enhanced my training and racing.
    Pros:
    Easy to Use, Easy to take swallow, Eliminates cramping, East to install
    Cons:
    None
    Best Uses:
    Cycling, Running, During Workout

    The unit will not work with Zipp B2 bars and includes no instructions to exchange nozzle color. Also, the exterior mounting bracket (in case it won't fit in bars) is not included but appears in the image on the website. Can't comment on function until I get it mounted.
