I have used these for years. My better half uses them when she runs too. We both tried the newer thinner gels that are getting popular right now and both came to the same conclusion. The others work okay but you crash hard with them so you better be ready to keep pumping them in once you start. The Hammer Gel's have no sugar so we don't seam to crash after taking one. It will just get used up and you can take another or just ride on in tired. When the other thin ones we tried gets used up you better take another one or it isn't going to be fun getting home. If I am 8-10 miles from home I hate to burn a Gel just to get home on a solo ride, with Hammer I don't have to.
I have used the Hammer Gel for many years. From an extra boost in the weight room, to 5 and 10ks, hunting and backpacking, it is a staple. I highly recommend it and plan to continue its usage until my motor stops.
Used this product for years. Hammer Nutrition works. Use it during a ride or a long run, while competing or training. You will not be disappointed. Buying a 24 pack of one flavor is a commitment. But if you know what flavor you like, no worries.
I try to find gels at $1 each or less. Unfortunately sometimes they are on sale for a reason. These were nearly that price and are very good - if you like chocolate. I'll buy again if the price is right.
I haven't used Hammer Gel for quite awhile. Ran out and started eating energy bars. After getting back to regular frequent cycling, I found my energy lagging . I discovered an Energy Gel in my bento box! It really gave me a much needed energy boost. I decided to order more, since that was my last one.
I have always enjoyed Hammer products and the Gel is no exception. Very convenient to take on the bike and easy to digest. Works great for that mid ride boost.
My go to for gels on longer or hotter rides of more than 2 hrs. Nice boost & almost no sugar. Really like all the different flavors but, Expresso is my favorite.
