I didn't think I liked buying in bulk but the variety box was a great way to get to know other flavors that I had not tried . It was nice to not have to rush to the store the night before a longer ride .
As well as having the option of flavor and caffeine level, these gels really suit my digestion system. Taken as suggested they have powered me through my first century in 20 years and a recent hilly metric.
I use Gu for relatively short bike rides of 100Km (62.1 miles) or less. It gives a quick burst of energy needed before pulling my local bike club at 20+ mph. So that I don't get tired of individual flavors, I like the variety pack.
GU is my go-to fuel for everyday rides. If it's super cold out, or I need a quick push, I'll take the extra caffeine flavors (40mg), which really help. I've become a fan of all the flavors, and enjoy the variety packs. For long endurance/intense activity rides use their "Roctane" mix.
One of the big concern with gels are it's taste and texture. It's not for everybody but I find gels easy to consume on the go. It can be messy and sticky. The taste is not bad. Not overly sweet and the different flavors of this box keeps you interested.
I first used GU gels in long distance running so stuck with them when I started cycling far enough to need mid ride fueling. I like the mix of flavors in the "Indulgent" box and buying in bulk is easier on the wallet. I find them very easy to eat, and the small size makes them equally easy to carry in a jersey pocket.
Been using these for years. Depending on ride length, I choose with or without caffeine accordingly. They offer me quick energy when needed or wanting to push more miles. I do not get stomach upset from these. Easy to consume while riding too.
GU tastes good, replenishes what I need during a hard ride, and is easy to pack. The variety pack gives me options for flavors and caffeine levels. Other than being sticky as heck if you get it on your fingers I give it two thumbs up.
Iï¿½ve used Gu for a number of years and it keeps me riding. I purchased the mixed indulgence pack this time and they taste like Iï¿½m having a fancy dessert. This product works great and tastes awesome!
I use these on longer rides, and usually have one tucked away in case of emergencies (the dreaded bonk). Easy to use, great flavors, fast shipping from BTD! Vanilla bean is my favorite, but they are all so tasty.
