Description

Using GU during your regular workouts will keep your mind alert and active, and your muscles going strong. GU gives the most concentrated form of immediate energy with no stomach bulk or distress, is quickly and efficiently absorbed, and will maintain your blood sugar at the optimal level for a great workout start to finish.

During a workout or race, no matter what type, you need to quickly absorb carbohydrate-based calories to replace the glucose you are burning at 400 - 600 per hour or you will begin to lose concentration and energy. The fat, fiber and protein found in bars are very slow to absorb and create unwanted bulk in the stomach. GU is created for the body during exercise, and because of its form and ingredients is absorbed much faster than a bar so you will feel the energy almost immediately.

GU Energy Gel contains maltodextrin, the best complex carbohydrate for delivering energy to working muscles. GU also contains the optimal balance of carbohydrates for the body during exercise: 80% complex/20% simple. It is this balance of maltodextrin and fructose in GU that delivers a quick rise in blood sugar and maintains that glucose level for up to 45 minutes during exercise.

By simply adding GU to your normal workout routine - one packet 15 minutes before starting then one packet every 45 minutes or so - you will feel strong and energized, be able to maintain your effort throughout the workout, feel better when you finish, and recover quickly for your next workout. If you want to have a good workout you have to supply your body with the right fuel - GU Energy Gel.

GU Energy Gel is sold is boxes of 24 gels. Available in a wide variety of flavors.

GU Caramel Macchiato is the best!

I've been a long-time fan of GU Caramel Macchiato energy gel and never fail to keep a pack or two in my top-tube bike bag or the backpack for those moments when my energy dips a little. I've tried a number of other energy gel brands, but I always keep coming back to GU. They're portable, easy to open, and just the right amount of sweetness.

I especially appreciate the cost-savings I find at Bike Tires Direct, plus shipping is free! Can't beat that. I'll continue to order from Bike Tires Direct for all of my cycling/hiking needs. Thanks!

Great after working all day

It doesn�t matter how well I eat or how hydrated I am, I�m exhausted after work and the commute home is sometimes awful. If I use Gu and a little bit of water and/or coffee I�m generally able to power through. It�s not a guarantee, but I feel much better climbing hills after being on my feet all day.

LOVE THE FLAVOR

I use a variety of different flavors. This new Lemon flavor is one of my favorites. I will reorder this one as long as it is offered. If you like a non-tart lemon flavor you should give this one a try.

A different texture and tastes

I like to get a verity of brands and flavors for my gels to keep things interesting. My latest purchase was the GU mint chocolate. This flavor has a thinner texture than the other GU's. It was great! For very long rides it gets hard to put down some of the thicker GU's, but I can always put down mint chocolate. I like the easy removal tab on GU gels, though it can be tedious to properly dispose of it. The Clif gels have the leash for the tab, though it usually creates another opening.

Tastefully nude has no 'Natural Flavor' thanks so much GU for this option!!

I like to ingest as little 'Natural Flavor' as possible and the Tastefully Nude is free of that chemical flavor enhancer that goes in just about anything and everything. BTD had a very nice sale so these were reasonably priced, but most would agree this sports nutrition market in general is way overpriced.

GU is GREAT!

I use GU every time I ride, every 20 to 25 minutes, getting a little over 200 calories an hour. Have been using it for over 18 years and have been buying it from BTD for nearly as long. I have tried other gel supplements but none have the punch that GU has.

Anti Bonk Elixer!

As suggested,15 minutes before a ride & 45 minutes into it. Has proved to be an energy fueled guaranteed,bicycle ride consistently. With proper hydration & one or two packs in my jersey pocket has been a terrific formula. I have a runner friend who also swears by using GU energy gels during her runs. I take them along with a Power Bar & cheese sticks in my jersey pockets.

Not so much

We tried out the Salted Caramel. It only has the taste of a hint of vanilla. Consistency is OK, not too thick.

Effective source of energy

I have been using GU gels for forever. It really does pick you up when you need it. I usually fill my gel flask with gu and water, shake well to mix and put it in my jersey pocket. Easier than fumbling with single serving packets. If I anticipate a long ride, I do carry a couple of extra single packets just in case. Vanilla Bean is my go to. As long as it works and they don�t change the formula I will keep using them.

GU Vanilla Bean is my go to workout booster. I usually pop a gel at the 1 hour mark of a 2+ hour bike ride and it gives me the extra "umph" that i need without that nauseous feeling.

I've never bonked with these on board!

I've been using these GU mandarin,energy Gels for many years. I enjoy one while stretching out before a ride. And have always included one at my rest or halfway point. Plus an extra one on board for a hard ride. I used to think maybe GU energy gels were just for taste. But seeing how many runners also use them diligently for their runs. Has kept me believing.
