Myprotein ENER:GEL review
The guys at ProBikeKit asked me if I'd like to try out the new energy gels from MyProtein.
MyProtein are market leaders in sports nutrition and supplements. Now they've ventured into the cycling arena with the ENER:GEL. They currently have two different flavours available - Orange Zest and Lemon and Lime. I was sent the Orange Zest flavour.
The gels come in the very common 60ml pouch. The packet can be torn by your teeth from either side and more often then not you need to tear from both sides as I couldn't seem to tear it in one clean sweep. The size of the gel is fairly handy for carrying a handful in your jersey pocket and are not too heavy.
The flavour was just sweet enough. Not too sickly, just a nice refreshing taste. People often choose gels based on taste. I think this flavour will appeal to many.
The gel is not thick and not too watery so it's easy to consume and digest. The high water content means you won't need to wash it down straight way like the thicker gels on the market.
ProBikeKit currently sell a box of 24 for £19.19 including delivery. That's just 80p per gel. Excellent value.
The gel performed well while out riding. Each gel provides 25g of carbohydrate and just 101 kcal. Enough for leisure and sportive riders like me.
A great tasting, great value gel that will fit well into the current offerings from the well known gel makers.
