Endura™ Sports Energy Gels are a concentrated source of carbohydrates.
If you're out on the bike exercising for an extended period, obviously your energy stores are going to become depleted. Gels are a convenient way to carry and consume a blast of energy that takes effect almost immediately.
For any rides over a couple of hours you should be carrying some gels to stop you 'hitting the wall'. This is when your glycogen stores become depleted, causing sudden fatigue and energy loss. The best way to prevent this is to ensure glycogen levels are high when you set out, and maintained throughout your ride. On a 100km ride for example, you should be looking to take at least 3 gels, plus some food (like bars) to keep your energy levels up the whole way.
The Gels contain immediate impact carbs for instant energy combined with slow release carbohydrates for long-term energy giving you long lasting performance. Endura Sports Energy Gels are a convenient energy source with energy boosters like caffeine, and a blend of immediate impact and slow release carbohydrates to sustain energy levels. You can store them on you and just take with water as you need. They are an easy way of keeping glycogen levels up and are suitable for taking either during the whole event, or to get you through when you hit the wall.
