Product Details

We stock a wide offering of products from Gu Energy. Gels, Chomps, and drink mix to name a few.

One of our favorites is the Roctane Ultra Endurance Energy Drink

This Gu Energy product is a carbohydrate intensive energy drink for ultra-distance and intense efforts. It contains the critical carbs and electrolyte replenishment that endurance athletes need to compete at high levels. It is a super light tasting, easy to mix formula for fueling serious efforts. Each serving contains 240 calories of complex and simple carbs that is optimized for rapid absorption and energy accessibility. Key electrolytes help with hydration. Roctane Ultra Endurance Drink contains beta-alanine which supplements dietary beta-alanine to improve muscle buffering during intense efforts and branch chain amino acids, shown to serve as an additional fuel source (when taken with carbohydrates), reduce muscle damage, enhance recovery and delay fatigue. Roctane Drink mixes easily and isn’t chalky like most calorie dense drinks on the market. The key ingredients in the drink are specifically designed for long and intense endeavors. For many athletes, all they may need during prolonged exercise is one 21oz bottle of Roctane Drink and 1 Roctane Gel per hour for 340 calories and extra nutritional support to maximize performance.

The staple, Gu Energy Gel

GU Original Sports Nutrition Energy Gel is the energy gel that started it all. In 1993, Dr. Bill Vaughn developed the world’s first energy gel to help his daughter perform better during ultra-marathons, and GU has been helping to propel the world’s most successful extreme athletes to success ever since. GU Energy Gel sustains all forms of athletic activity with a highly compact, portable, and calorie-dense packet that is loaded with carbohydrates that can be rapidly absorbed. Branched-chain amino acids limit muscle fiber damage and increase speed of recovery, and extra electrolytes help maintain water balance. Some flavors feature caffeine to increase concentration. While the original formula has been tweaked and evolved over the years, the end result is still the same: GU Energy Gels fuel the best endurance athletes in the world. GU Original Energy Gel comes in a wide variety of great tasting flavors. Each packet contains 450mg of Amino acids, 100 calories, and at least 21g total carbs.
