I've been using Perpetuem for several years now. For me, it has an improved taste over its predecessor. But the biggest improvement is how much easier it is to mix and dissolve. Although it can take some time by hand, I now also use a battery-operated frother. I put one scoop of Perpetuem in about 4 ounces of water, froth to mix it, and put it in the refrigerator. Just before I set out on my bike ride, I drink it. That mix and balanced electrolytes in my water bottles pretty well carry me through a 45-mile ride with my club. 32 servings turn into 64.
This is a solid choice if you are looking for a gluten-free and/or vegan protein supplement. My wife and I have tried many vegan protein powders over the last decade, and this has become our "go-to" for the last 2 years.
It mixes easily - doesn't leave large clumps.
No after taste - many vegan protein powders leave an after taste.
Doesn't cause gut bloating - it is easy on the digestive track.
The only reason I am giving it a value rating of 4 out of five stars is that the rating system says that 4 stars = "good deal" and 5 stars = "a steal". This product is priced in line with other vegan protein powders...none of them are priced low.
I pair the Hammer bulk gels with the Hammer carrying flask, primarily because it's far easier to use during races than trying to open individual gels. In this respect it works perfectly, and I can add anywhere from 1-5 gels, mix with a little water/juice, and add a bit of caffeine powder if I choose. The fact that it's cheaper per serving than pre-packaged gels is also a plus. The only point of note I have is with the Montana Huckleberry - the flavor is good, however it's got seeds in it which make squeezing it through the flask nozzle slightly more challenging. Overall a great system that I will continue to use.
From the time I was a kid I was a water drinker while others drank Kool Aid and sodas. Never did like the sweet stuff. With the hammer capsules it's just easy for me to take one every hour (if I remember) and it keeps my body going with the vitamins my body needs while going back to back centuries , 545 mile rides from San Francisco to LA etc. At 72 I'm no long one of the fast riders but usually finish mid pack with no problems. Very satisfied ever since a trainer suggested them when I told him my system just doesn't agree with sweet, sugar sweetness electrolyte drinks.
