Energy Drinks & Gels
Our Range of Energy Drinks & Gels
Energy products for cycling come in many forms and if Energy Bars aren't what you like. Gels, fluids, and solids each have there own benefits and love or hate them, they help your cycling performance. They provide a quick hit of energy in a format that is easy to digest and usually contain a combination of sugars, carbohydrates, salts, proteins, and electrolytes. All of which your body spends in high quantities when you're exercising.
Energy Gels are concentrated Hydration & Energy Drinks & Tablets, commonly based on maltodextrin, providing carbohydrates and glucose in a convenient absorbable gel. It is important to note that Energy Gels should be consumed with water as the concentrate won't prevent dehydration. These Gels are great to use before and during exercise as they typically raise your blood sugar level immediately. You can find that there are typically 3 types of Gels, Caffeine Energy Gels, Glucose / Fructose Energy Gels, and Isotonic Energy Gels. Each with there own benefits, we suggest speaking with a 99 Bikes Consultant to find the one that is right for your cycling needs.
Energy Drinks otherwise known as Electrolyte Hydration Drink & Powder are essential in providing the necessary Sodium, Calcium, Magnesium, and Potassium required for prolonged endurance exercise. Electrolyte Powders are flexible in allowing you to customise intake when adding to drinks, with the ability to top up existing Electrolyte drinks.
Energy Tablets also known as Electrolyte Hydration Tablets are just like Electrolyte Powders although have compressed into an easy to use and transportable Tab form. These Tablets when added with water allow for the same Hydration benefits that typically Electrolyte Hydration Powders offer. Electrolyte Tablets are great for use whilst cycling, due to their ability to be dropped into a drink, shaken and consumed within minutes.
