Cycing with e-Gel and e-Fuel

"I sweat a lot and this was a problem last year. I didn't know how much sweat and salt I would lose when I workout. I cramped on every race last year, which took me from being in the top 5 in every race down to 10-15th place. Not that this is bad, but considering that me a former bodybuilder could of kept up with the veteran racers, well let's just say pride is all I'll ever win in these races. I started using e-Fuel & e-Gels at Sea Otter in Laguna Seca and I was blown away." (...read more)

"My wife and I ride on average 200 miles per week. She is hypoglycemic and has searched for years for an energy source that she can tolerate on long rides up to 100 miles as well as higher intensity shorter rides. e-Gel and e-Fuel are absolutely the best for a no-bonk outing. We both use it on every ride." (...read more)

"My husband and I started using e-Gel seven years ago. We had tried everything available in local stores - nothing stood as well as e-Gel for us. We are long distance bicycle riders and now motorcycle riders. Look in our packs and you will find two things, packets of e-Gel and e-Fuel and then a baggy of "USED" products from each outing. We are always giving e-Gel to fellow riders to help when their product has let them down. The overall experience of fellow riders is less bonking and longer ride times.

Now for the non-human story. My little West Highland White Terrier, Brodie, attends our rides with us. On a recent return trip Brodie seemed tired and hot as we live in Arizona. Checked with the vet who indicated some type of electrolyte product was needed. With explanation of ingredients and permission from the vet, I put e-Gel in his water bowl, added water and ice. Much to my delight, Brodie lapped almost 4 ounces up and with in just a few minutes was feeling himself. We are sold on e-Gel even for our 4-legged friend."

"My buddy and I were riding home after a 40 mile training ride-1/2 downwind, 1/2 upwind on the way home. My friend bonked 10 miles out against a 25 mph headwind. We stopped. I administered to him my coveted e-Gel. He complained-wondered if it would make any difference. 10 minutes later he was back on his bike, riding hard, and saying, "This stuff is incredible." He now buys from Crank Sports. I always thought our experience was a simple but elegant testimony." (...read more)

"I was at mile 73 of the Gears for Ears Ride for Arkansas Children's Hospital - and I had nothing. I had eaten a Powerbar, hydrated well, and even had a few caramels earlier in the ride, but I was bonking. Then somebody handed me a Crank e-Gel, and it was like coming back to life. I read the ingredients and saw potassium and sodium citrate - key nutrients in the Kreb's metabolic cycle ..." (...read more)

"Coach Calhoun ride for The Cure, June 2008, 95 - 100 degrees, 50 mile road ride. About 35 miles int it and my quads and hamstrings are starting to twitch. At 40 miles I begin to cramp, but I've been keeping up with my hydration and electrolytes. Popped an e-gel and cramps went away. Started again 20 minutes later, popped another and finished the ride without any more cramps. I've "cured" other folks cramps with this stuff before. Works great, especially toward the end of a ride." (...read more)

Makes the hills a little less painfull and the recovery is much better. Putting that aside I would like to really praise you on your excellent service. Your web site is perfect. Don't change a thing.

"I'm 61 years old, skinny and got back into cycling a few years ago. I found that I had very little stamina and thought it was age related. Some of it is. I found using gels gave me more energy and improved performance. My home is on a small hill and when I ended each ride I tried to power up the hill but found that my legs had no energy left. Started using e-Gel a few weeks ago and find that I have longer lasting energy than using other gels like GU. " (...read more)

"Our usual road group is 6-8 riders and I'm the only female. The goal is always to stay with the pack for as many laps as possible before dropping off the back to do my own pace. (Actually, it's the goal of the front 2 guys to see how long it takes them to drop the rest of us, but all in good fun). Anyway, my very first experience was e-Gel was that I was able to hang on for a full lap longer. I know that I can't give e-Gel ALL of the credit (sorry), but there was enough of a difference in the way I felt to make the permanent switch from any other sports gel. Also, your article on hydration was a big help in understanding how this stuff works with what's already in my system.

I used the e-fuel the second half of my ride (as recommended) and I'll be making the switch there as well. It mixes easily with water, so I didn't get any surprise clumps (like, gag)...."

"I was sponsored by PowerBar as a pro climber for over a decade and loved their products. Now as a competitive road racer I needed a product that was easy to use and tatsted good. Eating on the bike is paramount. I use e-Gel on a regular basis I am a convert. The thinner consistency, better taste, easy opening and larger size are some of my favorite characteristics. Easy online ordering with direct cash savings rewards certainly help as well." (...read more)

But this year, I tried your e-Fuel for the first time. And man what a difference. I just completed a 93 mile fund-raising ride for cancer research in record time - over 0.5 mph faster then my previous 4 tries. My legs were stronger, my recovery faster, and my overall feel far better then any other time I've completed the ride. Your products are by far the best on the market. Thanks again!" (...read more)

"On July 8th I rode the Prouty 100 mile fundraiser for cancer at Dartmouth in NH with Debbie Chase and Carrie Nourjian. We finished in 6 hrs and 40 minutes and felt great the whole way thanks to e-Gel and e-Fuel. kept a consistent energy level during the ride by switching from e-gel one hour to fuel the next. Not bad for 3 women around 50 working fulltime trying to make time for rides in-bewteen busy schedules. There were 2000 riders that day who raised over a million dollars for cancer research;great effort everyone. The most important thing for me to mention about the use of the e-products is that I never have stomach problems or cramps anymore, can feel the energy instantly after ingesting either the liquid or the gel and always feel like I can keep going even when I am tired from a long ride. e-Fuel is great to drink while spinning inside during the winter also. Love the products and keep coming back for more." (...read more)

I use the Gel Packs before each cycling event, ice hockey game, and weight training session and the difference in my sustained energy level is nothing short of remarkable. Further, the e-Fuel keeps me sustained for the 2nd hour and beyond when cycling. I recommend CRANK products to all of my friends." (...read more)

I use them on 80-mile solo rides as well as in the weekly throwdown group rides in Austin, Texas. In my opinion it's the perfect blend of carbs and electrolytes for endurance riders to fierce competitors...nothing else compares. " (...read more)

"Thank you for making such a great product and providing wonderful service. As an insulin dependant diabetic for 20 years and a retired ultra-distance cyclist, I have been eating gels for a long time. They are especially important for me because as a diabetic, i can carry two of these packets in my slacks at work in case my blood glucose drops unexpectedly. Not only is your gel pleasant to consume, you also use plastic that is able to withstand riding around in my pocket without exploding. Trust me, there is nothing worse than gel in your pocket, especially when my friends are confused about just what those cool t-shirts are really selling. Thanks again and keep on providing your great products!" (...read more)

I have tried everything - strengthing my inner core (pilates, physical therapy, etc.) and even though these things helped, consuming e-gel made the biggest difference.
