It’s officially hot and somewhat open in most parts now, which means we’re needing more hydration and more fuel for all the cycling to be done. The latest offerings offer hydration, energy and recovery options in a lot of new flavors and formulas.
Fluid’s new Spiced Chocolate Protein Recovery
Shown above, Fluid’s vegan protein drink uses pea protein to help provide your body with the amino acids needed to rebuild muscles after a hard ride or workout. Now, they’ve added Spiced Chocolate to the mix, joining the very delicious Spiced Vanilla. These are straight up protein drinks, sans carbs or sugars, and contain cinnamon and turmeric extract for a health boost. Stevia and Monk Fruit sweeten it without adding calories.
Honey Stinger Plus+ Performance Chews
Compared to their regular pouches of organic energy chews, these new Plus+ Performance Chews add 75mg of caffeine per pack, plus 160mg sodium and 50mg potassium. Think of them as chews, well, “plus”. Or Plus Plus if we’re reading that right. They come in sleeves for $2.69 each, or $29.99 for a box of 12 sleeves. Available in Stingerita Lime, Mango Melon and Lemon Ginger flavors.
Kate’s Real Food Snack Bites
Kate’s Real Food bars are some of our favorites thanks to the real ingredients and awesome flavors. Now, you can get many of them in bite-sized form with their new Snack Bites. Get any two bags for $13.99 or three for $19.99 and choose from any combination of Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate, Dark Chocolate Cherry & Almond, or Peanut Butter Hemp & Flax. Each 6.6oz bag is about three bars’ worth of food. Available on Amazon with free Prime delivery (affiliate link, BTW).
Skratch Labs SuperFuel
Finally coming around to the fact that some athletes just don’t want to eat on the bike, Skratch Labs found a complexly complex carbohydrate that would deliver calories without upsetting that delicate balance of hydration and absorption. The new SuperFuel…well, it’s really best if you hear it explained from Allan Lim himself. He sent us a video.
