Using GU during your regular workouts will keep your mind alert and active, and your muscles going strong. GU gives the most concentrated form of immediate energy with no stomach bulk or distress, is quickly and efficiently absorbed, and will maintain your blood sugar at the optimal level for a great workout start to finish.

During a workout or race, no matter what type, you need to quickly absorb carbohydrate-based calories to replace the glucose you are burning at 400 - 600 per hour or you will begin to lose concentration and energy. The fat, fiber and protein found in bars are very slow to absorb and create unwanted bulk in the stomach. GU is created for the body during exercise, and because of its form and ingredients is absorbed much faster than a bar so you will feel the energy almost immediately.

GU Energy Gel contains maltodextrin, the best complex carbohydrate for delivering energy to working muscles. GU also contains the optimal balance of carbohydrates for the body during exercise: 80% complex/20% simple. It is this balance of maltodextrin and fructose in GU that delivers a quick rise in blood sugar and maintains that glucose level for up to 45 minutes during exercise.

By simply adding GU to your normal workout routine - one packet 15 minutes before starting then one packet every 45 minutes or so - you will feel strong and energized, be able to maintain your effort throughout the workout, feel better when you finish, and recover quickly for your next workout. If you want to have a good workout you have to supply your body with the right fuel - GU Energy Gel.

Great for many sports, good deal in bulk
by SorrowNDoom

I use GU gels for cycling (road and mountain), hikingbackpacking, and Laser regattas. Quick energy, easy on my system. I prefer the vanilla, orange, and berry-based flavors, never was a fan of chocolate or coffee, and the lemon sublime is a little bizarre. I'm diligent about disposing of my empty packets properly, and find that if I roll the empty packet up starting with the open end I don't get sticky GU remnants all over my stuff.

Gu, the anti drop fuel
by Marolli
Cycling Enthusiast
NY

Big help mid - ride when I need fuel to keep burning. I have tried all of them and prefer the regular GU with a little caffiene. All flavors are fine and it's nice to have a variety. I save the Roctane for morning rides and sometimes only half a portion. Definite rapid increase in energy and ability to keep up.

While on my Sunday 40 mile ride I use a GU energy gel (lemon) at the half way point. This insures that I have enough energy to handle the pace on the return. The gel is easy to open and swallow with a chaser of plain water. This product is also very easy to digest and gets in your system fairly fast.

by Alex B

Excellent product. Truly makes a difference when you're out on a long ride. I use these when I ride road, mtn andor off road motorcycles. No cramping, no arm pump, less fatigue, more energy. Vanilla Bean is my flavor of choice.

Love the Peanut Butter!
by Senior Racer

I bought this in bulk to achieve a low per-unit price which created a lot of value. I absolutely love the peanut butter (and other flavors too). Putting it on a scoop of ice cream after a long ride is an added treat.

I have used GU for many years for 3 to 17 hour rides. It is easy to use and easily tolerated especially while riding intensly. One every 30 minutes works best for me. I have tried ALL the competitors Gel products. GU is the BEST!

gu the best energy gel on the market

i've tryed many different gels over the years but to me gu works the best overall to provide me with a steady stream of energy during the many centuries i cycle every year ,, and it does it without giving me the shakes or huge power drop offs like many other gels out there so for me i give gu two thumbs and its worth giving a try if you've never used it before......just use one every 15 miles with at least 8 ounces of water to get the best effect...

So Convenient.
by Anonymous

I'm am not a hardcore racer or anything but I do like to attack hills and enjoy the payoff of exhilarating descent. I use these as a supplement to solid bars on long rides. Prior to an upcoming hill I pop one of these. It gives me the boost I need and it's way easier than chocking down a solid energy bar. Doesn't taste too bad either.

taste similar to hammer gel, less packaging
by ADK biker

i tried hammer gel and found it effective and delicious, but the reason i went with buying GU energy gels was more about the packaging. the tastes are very similar, (I've only had the chocolate with both), but GU is easier for me to put In my speed bag. Less waste and less cumbersome in packet form. which of course makes a difference when your barreling down the road with cars whizzing by.
