What we think
One of the secrets at this year's Tour is how many teams are using Maurten's product, despite not being sponsored by Maurten.
You only need to watch a few minutes of the race to riders grabbing the iconic black and white packages of Maurten's Gels.
We have also seen the appearance on almost every stage of Maurten's New Solid 225. It is a bar, but we aren't allowed to call it a bar as it is so much more. Packed with 44g of carbs, is it the ideal solid race fuel.
The Limited Edition Maurten Sampler Pack is filled with everything from Maurten.
Here is what you are getting in the Maurten Sampler Pack.
- 2x Maurten SOLID 225 - Basic Flavor
- 2x Maurten SOLID 225 - C Flavor
- 4x Maurten Gel 100
- 4x Maurten Gel 100 CAF 100
- 1x Maurten Drink Mix 320
- 1x Maurten Drink Mix 160
- 1x Maurten 500ml Bottle
As background, Maurten is a relatively new player in sports nutrition. With a biotech background and coming from Sweden, Maurten has become the most talked about brand in sports nutrition over the past few years.
The secret to Maurten is high-carb fueling. Some would even say that Maurten is leading the movement towards high-carb fueling.
Maurten's products enable athletes to consume more carbs per hour than ever thought possible (over 100g per hour at the Tour de France) without any stomach upset.
Maurten has a complete system of drinks, gels, and bars so you can mix products to fit the needs of your events and preferences to get the total carbs per hour you need (hint, aim for a minimum of 80g per hour).
The impact on your training will be profound. In just your first run or ride over 90 minutes, you will feel a meaningful difference when you are doing high-carb fueling.
How We Use It
Be careful about how much water you use and pay attention to that detail. 17oz or 500ml is the amount you are looking for. Maurten is careful to say that the functionality of this ratio is key for it to work well. Also, make sure you shake well until the solution dissolves. Drink it before, during, and/or after your activity.
