Cold, just a fad, have been running for 25yrs, tried these for 6 months, no difference to water and a banana.

Have a banana before you go out? Never needed these gels, even doing 20+ miles, great for those that do I suppose.
The lidl High5 deal was better.
I use both banana and gels and they are both good. I only use gels on longer rides when carrying a banana would be to much hasstle

where do you put your banana when racing ? i tend to require carbs when doing long runs and i'm not really good at chewing while running so gels work perfectly for me. i've used them for years.

When cycling over 5 hours or so you need a lot more than a banana before you go out maintain pace.
running with a banana is a waste of time. it takes 8 hours for the banana to give your any energy. Eat it when you get home. These gels give you instant energy to keep your proforma nice higher.
Aren't these full of sugar? Think of getting some.

Gels aren't a 'fad'. True, people misuse them, but when racing on longer events (more than 2 hours) these can be essential. I only ever use them in emergencies to avoid bonking.

lol...
Yeah they are good to keep on you for emergencies but the only downside is I cannot seem to avoid getting the gel on my handlebars and brake levers.... Sticky

Of corse, your body needs sugars, but it's not the same sugar you can get at Tesco...

Lol, I know that, just wondering if it's bad sugar eg glucose or something. Want it for the gym but not if it's detrimental

Lol on this site is tricky to distinguish the genuine questions... The ones I've tried from SIS contain maltodextrin. Allegedly better than glucose but tbh little different in terms of metabolism

Don't know the official figures but I do get a fairly quick boost from a banana - Or maybe its in my head - whichever it still seems to work
