Gel 160 is a bigger hydrogel option — encapsulating 40 grams of carbohydrates in each serving. Proven technology built with just 6 natural ingredients — no added colors, preservatives or flavors. For athletes who want more energy in each gel to fuel their training and racing.
Going long? Take more. It’s that simple. Gel 160 is for athletes who want more energy in each gel. In endurance sport — to maintain performance — it’s important to fuel regularly. Every fueling moment needs to count. And the further you go, the more carbs you need to sustain performance. Gel 160 helps athletes achieve the right amount of carbs per hour with proven Hydrogel Technology — no matter the situation.
This is still the Gel. Still the cleanest. Still the realest. Still no colors. Still no preservatives. Still hydrogel — that’s the innovation. Gel 160 uses the technology that is proven to work for athletes — just more. 40 grams of carbohydrates in each 65-gram sachet.
Maurten products are developed for endurance athletes. Driven by research and science to solve problems and enhance performance. It started in 2015. Their patented Hydrogel Technology — encapsulating high concentrations of carbohydrates — made fueling for sports easier to tolerate. The innovation meant less distress in the stomach.
Hydrogels are three-dimensional networks of hydrophilic polymers with a high water content that is biocompatible. We took this to our advantage when we discovered a highly effective way to build hydrogels with natural ingredients alginate (seaweed) and pectin (fruit fiber) that encapsulate the most efficient source of energy around – carbohydrates. The two key components, Alginate and Pectin, create a protective hydrogel structure that efficiently delivers salt and carbohydrates through the stomach to the intestine, where the hydrogel dissolves, and the body can absorb the salt and carbohydrates.
Their patented Hydrogel technology enables us to increase the amount of carbohydrates available to the body as fuel. Hydrogel technology reduces the risk of gastrointestinal problems that arise when loading the stomach with traditional sports fuels and unnecessary ingredients like colorants, preservatives, and artificial flavors, that do not aid your performance.
