I started with Skratch Hydration at the beginning of 2020. With the pandemic lockdowns, I wound up riding nearly 1k miles/month in my garage, and really increased my hydration needs especially through the hot summer. I'd wind up going through a 20 serving bag every 2-3 weeks, but the electrolytes definitely work, as my heart rate was much more under control with this than just water alone.
I've used Fluid, SIS and Gatorade over the years. Fluid is awesome, but flavors are limited and get boring. SIS tends to be less sweet, while Gatorade is too sweet, even when watered down. The Skratch pineapple and strawberry flavors are my favorite by far.
My husband and I have used other hydration products for years. Earlier this year, we tried Scratch Passion Fruit flavor Sport Hydration Powder. We absolutely love it. So much so, we threw away all of our other hydration products. No fizz to go flat or aftertaste, just great taste. We use 1 12 scoops of powder per 10 - 12 ounces of water poured into a 21 ounce Camelbak Podium Ice bottle loaded with ice. It is the perfect formula for us. Enjoy!
Ive tried and used many products but have always had stomach issues after several months. Decided to give Scratch Labs a try and it has been well worth it. Ive now been using this product for several yrs with no problems. It is light and clean and has caused zero stomach issues. Works great in the lovely Florida heat and humidity. Its not sugar sweet or has an after taste.
Decided to experiment with Skratch since I usually use Hammer Electrolyte products. I've been using it in the winter months so really have not put it to a serious > 100 heat index day. However, have been using it on longer rides without any negative reactions or cramping.
Easy to mix / dissolve very pleasant mild taste. Would buy again without hesitation & plan to test on hotter days
Probably the best energy drink out there. During training and long rides, Scratch has been my go-to drink. I've tried most everything on the market, and Scratch doesn't bloat my stomach, or leave a clingy feeling in my mouth.. Flavors are good too.
Best hydration drink Ive had. All flavors have been my favorite so far! The best deal is the 60 servings when on sale. As a novice I thought recovery drinks were a marketing scam - 40k miles under my belt since has proven recovery drinks are a required staple.
Skratch lab drink mix is my go to hydration on the bike. I like the fact that it is not loaded with sugar, it does have a very mild taste. I sometimes mix 2 flavors for a different taste. It keeps me hydrated during long rides.
Decent flavor (lemon line), and gives you the right electrolyte loading without a ton of sugar. I ride all summer in Phoenix (start at 6am when it can still be above 90 degrees) and Skratch keeps me going without cramping.
