Gel 160 is a larger hydrogel option - encapsulating 40 grams of carbohydrate in each container. Proven technology with only 6 natural ingredients, without added colorings, preservatives or flavorings. For athletes who want more energy in each gel to fuel their training and racing.
More or less - it's the same
Gel 160 uses the same Maurten hydrogel technology that has proven effective in athletes, but in greater quantities. Encapsulating 40 grams of carbohydrates in each 65 gram sachet. This is still the Gel. Still the cleanest. It is still the most real. Without colorants. Without preservatives. It's still hydrogel: that's the innovation.
Gel 160 is manufactured taking advantage of hydrogel technology, using only 6 natural ingredients. A biopolymer matrix, filled with a mixture of fructose and glucose (8:1 ratio) facilitates tolerance to the intake of high concentrations of carbohydrates per hour during training and competition.
- Calcium carbonate
- gluconic acid
- Sodium alginate
Long distance? Drink more. As simple as that. Gel 160 is for athletes who want more energy in each gel. In endurance sports, to maintain performance, it is important to drink fuel regularly. Sometimes it's not easy. Intense racing and adverse conditions can influence when you eat and drink. And the further you go, the more carbs you'll need to maintain your performance. Gel 160 helps athletes get the right amount of carbohydrates per hour, whatever the situation.
You asked us
Maurten works closely with athletes, conducting performance tests and listening to their feedback in real-world situations. There was a constant message: "To get more carbs in long sessions, can we take a larger gel?" Maurten studied the science and saw that it made sense. So we did it. Gel 160 is the result of the close relationship between Maurten and elite sport, based on the trust of hydrogel technology.
6 natural ingredients. Without preservatives. No artificial flavors or allergens. No dirt on your hands or pockets. It doesn't get any cleaner than this.
This is the Gel
Other traditional energy gels tend to be a liquid syrup. Gel 160 has a firmer, gel-like structure. Which makes it a gel. So you could say this is the Gel.
No gut, no glory
Thanks to hydrogel technology, Gel 160 allows fluid transport of carbohydrates through the stomach, where they are absorbed more quickly, reducing the risk of gastrointestinal discomfort.
