Powerbar's Powergels were the first gels to hit the market and are still wildly popular amongst many cyclists and multi sports athletes. They are essentially a concentrated carbohydrate gel designed to provide athletes with immediate energy during intense athletic activity. It is an excellent source of fast fuel.
PowerBar Energy Gel is formulated with PowerBar® C2MAX dual source energy blend, a 2:1 glucose to fructose blend found to deliver 20-50% more energy to muscles than glucose alone and improve endurance performance by 8%. PowerBar Energy gels contain 200mg sodium - a key electrolyte lost in sweat that is associated with muscle cramping in some athletes.
Easy tear packaging makes access to the gel while riding a snap. The packaging is also durable to prevent leakage in your jersey pocket.
Both caffeinated and non-caffeinated flavors are available. Berry blast Green Apple, Chocolate and Strawberry Banana deliver 25 mg of caffeine (equivalent to 8 oz. of a cola drink); Double Latte and Tangerine are double-caffeinated to deliver 50 mg caffeine (equal to about one half cup of coffee or 1 ounce of espresso) for the times you need double the boost. Raspberry Cream, Kona Punch and Vanilla have no added caffeine.
