About SiS GO Gel + Caffeine Berry
The SiS GO Gel + Caffeine Berry builds on the established science of the GO Isotonic Gels by not only delivering a rapid supply of easily digestible carbohydrates (21.5 grams per gel) for energy but also, providing 75mg of caffeine per gel. The addition of caffeine has been repeatedly shown by sport scientists to improve performance by providing both a physical and mental boost just when we need it.
Why should I take this gel?
Caffeine has been shown to have many physiological benefits during exercise that can collectively improve performance. It is also scientifically believed that caffeine can increase fat utilisation and therefore effectively sparing the use of our limited carbohydrate stores for later use during exercise. As such, we now have more carbohydrate available for when we really need it such as those hard parts of the training session or race. Also believed by many scientists to alter muscle metabolism, caffeine can have direct effects on the brain by improving reaction times and lowering our perception of effort for a given workload, thus making the exercise now seem easier. Caffeine is undoubtedly one of the most research proven methods to improve your performance.
Consume up to 3 sachets per 60 minutes during exercise as required. Do not consume more than 4 sachets per day. SiS GO Gels do not need to be consumed with water to be effective. Ensure you keep hydrated. This product is not intended for children, under 16’s or pregnant women. Where hydration is important, SiS GO Gels + Caffeine can also be consumed with SiS GO Hydro or GO Electrolyte to ensure a combination of energy, caffeine and fluid delivery during exercise.
Energy gels are consumed by athletes or other physically active people to maintain their calorific needs in light of their strenuous physical activity. They contain complex carbohydrates and are often sold in various fruit flavours, most are in sachet format with a tear off lid for ease of use.
Science in Sport grew out of the desire to provide the best nutritional products and advice to athletes. The Company mixes qualified sport scientists, food technologists, and a physician with keen athletes and sports people who have competed from local level to the world stage. As a result of all this experience they have an unprecedented knowledge of the nutritional needs of athletes. Initially Science in Sport grew in cycling thanks in part to the use and endorsement of the products by Chris Boardman, who liked the Company ethos, and helped to inspire the creation of REGO, total recovery sports fuel. It wasn't long before the word began to spread and Science in Sport's products became more popular at the top level of many other sports. To date Science in Sport have helped to win Olympic Gold's, World Championships, Premiership Titles and set numerous World Records.

Too often we forget that as a nation we lead in so many areas of life. Sports nutrition is just another one of these key areas. This year we have seen SIS move from just sponsoring individual athletes, to now looking after the 2 Pro Tour Teams including the world number one ranked squad, Team CSC.
Energy gels have become an established form of reintroducing carbohydrate in a ride. Sometimes when the weather is hot many riders find it difficult to eat solid foods and prefer to rely on gels for an energy boost. Go Gels are the only gels that are isotonic in nature, i.e. you don't need to take additional water to make it work. Although the new Energizer Gel is based on the original Go Gel and is isotonic also, it is recommended that you also take additional fluid due to the caffeine in the gel.
We all know of the benefits of caffeine to aid concentration, but too much can have a negative on certain systems in the body. One area that can suffer under high doses of caffeine is that vision can become blurred. SIS have added a batch of anti-oxidants to combat this and other problems associated with too much caffeine, like stomach upsets.
Currently only one flavour is available, which is "Bursting with Berryâ€. This flavour is much more pronounced than the regular Go Gels. The first batch was completely sold out to the pro peloton as word spread of this fantastic new product. Stuart O'Grady used the Gel to good effect in Paris Roubaix this year, and Vinokourov is also a big fan.
I received my batch just before the Tour of Wessex so I didn't have time to use it in any training rides. But as I have used SIS products for over 10 years I didn't see that this should present a problem. The new gel flavour is much more pronounced than the regular GO Gels that are currently available.
I found the kick of the caffeine useful when I was staring to feel a little tired mid point through the event. I took my first gel at around the 50-mile mark, the energy gets into your system fast and the caffeine element kicks in around 45 - 60 minutes after. Day Two of the event I took two lots of gels with me. As the weather was foul any food consumed felt like my body was using it straight away. When the initial signs of hypothermia were starting to set in the gel made a difference and helped me on the way after replacing a tube on my second and last puncture of the day. Having now also used this gel at the Dragon Ride I will always carry a couple in my back pocket, as I like the double whammy effect it gives.
Okay so what next? Is the Energizer range to be limited to just the gel? I hope not. Two logical additions would be to make an energy bar that uses this technology and also a GO type drink. Another great addition would be to have another flavour, maybe citrus based for those people who do not like the berry option. I am sure over the next few months we will see what comes out from SIS.
Traditional SIS Go Gel virtues with added caffeine
Smart-1 gel builds on the reputation SiS established with its isotonic Go gel, the difference being Smart-1 gel includes and added kick in the form of 50mg of caffeine. The extra element should increase your endurance, concentration and possibly assist carbohydrate absorption. Carb content is 22g, which you don't need to knock back with water - just tear and gulp.
The berry flavour has an almost medicine like taste - which was strangely palatable - and contains anathocyanins that should help reduce fatigue, particularly in the lower back - good news for triathletes stuck in an aero position for hours. Additional citrus bioflavenoids help caffeine absorption. It's ideal for a pre-training lift, or in endurance sessions or races.
Combines the proven Go-Gel with caffeine and purposeful antioxidants.
