Maurten Gel Combo Pack




What we think

Maurten Gel has become the top-selling gel used by endurance athletes.

What makes Maurten Gel unique is the hydrogel technology that encapsulates the carbohydrates (and caffeine in the case of the caffeinated gel). With Hydrogel, you are able to consume significantly more carbohydrates, upwards of 100+ grams of carbs per hour, which would have previously caused stomach distress, ultimately allowing you to push harder and further in your training and racing.

The Maurten Gel Combo pack gives you both of Maurten's Gels:

Maurten Gels work together with Maurten Drink Mix to create a complete fueling system. Maurten Gel 100 CAF 100 has the addition of 100mg of caffeine per gel.

If you're interested in including caffeine, we recommend gradually introducing it and we do not recommend exceeding 300mg of caffeine during a race or training session. We'd also recommend if you are including caffeine, to have 1 caffeinated gel at the start of your training or racing session to get you ready to go!

You want to aim for 60-80 grams of carbohydrate during moderate to high-intensity efforts that are over an hour in duration to keep the fuel tank from running empty! This could look like 3 Gel 100s per hour or 1 Gel 100 and 1 Maurten Drink Mix 160. The combinations are endless between gels and drink mixes as well as caffeine. Ultimately, it comes down to what works best for you!

This gel pack can be a great option for those who are looking to use only gels during training and racing, test out gels and drink mix combinations, or try different strategies with caffeine.

How do we use it?

Maurten Gel is used to deliver you quick, effective energy in the form of carbs to replenish muscle glycogen depletion during intense and long endurance activities.  It can also be used to preload with both carbs and caffeine before short, intense training or racing.

Your goal is to get close to 100g of carbs per hour.  Most people use 1 Maurten Gel per hour then consume Maurten's Drink Mix to get to the 100g of carb per hour level.

What does it taste like?

Maurten Gels doesn't have any flavor, it just tastes slightly sweet.  Unlike other Gels that you may be familiar with that are really more like sugary syrup, Maurten Gel is a true gel and has a consistency more like Jello.

Do I need water with it?

No!  You don't need to take water at the same time as you use a Maurten Gel as you would with regular gels. Maurten Gel has water already encapsulated in its hydrogel technology. However, you still need to drink plenty of water and electrolytes for hydration during your workouts and events.

How is it different than Maurten Drink?

It is actually the same technology as the Maurten Drink Mix but in a more portable format. Maurten Drink starts as a liquid and converts to a hydrogel when it reaches the different pH-level of your stomach. The Gel is already converted into the hydrogel in the package and goes down with ease.

How many Maurten Caffeinated Gels can I use?

We recommend that you don't use more than three caffeinated Gels per workout/day. 

How do I use it to preload caffeine before a race?

If you want to preload caffeine before a race, then drink a coffee/espresso one hour prior to your event and then take 1 Maurten Caffeinated Gel as you are warming up or about to start.

The Caffeine will start working within 15 minutes, with peak effects at 45 to 90 minutes and diminishing effects after 3 hours.
