This is the first gel that actually makes you feel as if you were coming back from the dead. Love it! Expensive though, so I only use for runs that last over 2 hours.

Comments about GU Roctane Energy Gel 24 pack Nutrition:

I have used GU for years and been very pleased with the results, but this summer I'm training for an ultra on Labor Day weekend in Florida and I wanted something with more "oomph" to it. I had read about Roctane before, but never tried them. I decided to spend the extra money above the cost of regular GU and I have not been disappointed. I used some during really hot, humid training workouts and they gave me a boost and helped me finish. I sweat a LOT and need lots of electrolytes, but the pills/tablets don't work well for me. I am very happy to have found an alternative and look forward to using these not only in the ultra, but other distance events in my future.

Comments about GU Roctane Energy Gel 24 pack Nutrition:

This is a great product for me to use on long runs. I use the caffeinated ones later in my runs to continue to give that extra boost that I need late in a long run/race. I also find that I recover faster the next day with using this product versus others that I have used in the past.

Comments about GU Roctane Energy Gel 24 pack Nutrition:

My "go to" energy gel for running and biking. Perfect texture, does not "gum up" in cold weather and tastes pretty good. I mostly use Sea Salt Chocolate and Cherry Lime flavors. Pricey, but worth it to me.

This is one of the best products on the market

By David

Verified Buyer

Comments about GU Roctane Energy Gel 24 pack Nutrition:

I have researched most of the gels, blocks, etc. GU Roctane has about twice the amount of electrolytes, carbs and protein. The protein acts as a catalyst for the carbs. A little more pricey, but worth it. Taste is good also. Great to use on long runs.

    Comments about GU Roctane Energy Gel 24 pack Nutrition:

    The current formulation contains beta-alanine and ornithine alpha-ketoglutarate (OKG). The product instructs me to consume one packet five minutes before a run and one packet every forty-five minutes during a run. I recently consumed three packets during a training run. The product permitted me to run faster with little exercise discomfort. I am sixty-six years old. Thanks for the product and the recent sales price.

        Love these GU's. It's nice having a mix of favors everyday and also one's w/o caffeine for later workouts. Only gave it four starts cause the vanilla orange tastes a little metalicy and they all have a little weird after taste. Overall they work great and most of them taste great.

              This is a great product for extended workouts or races. It taste good, but is a little thicker than some other gel out there, but not too bad (it is a gel, so your going to have that elmer's glue texture). Overall, if your running a marathon or training for an ironman triathlon like me, this may be the gel that gets you across the finish line without bonking.

                    I switched from Powerbar Powergels to Gu a few months ago. I had tried Gu in the past but, because I didn't run with water back then, they were too thick to consume on their own. Now that I'm running longer distances, I always have fluids with me so I decided to give them another try. All of the flavors are great, with the exception of cherry lime (not my cup of tea), and the consistency seems thinner now, which is a bonus. I'm quite happy with Gu and have decided to stick with them.

                    I tend to save the Roctane gels for races and long runs (15+ miles) but that's a matter of personal preference and training style. All in all, a great product that does what it is supposed to: tastes great and provides noticeable energy when needed.

                      Gu is a great product, but I have not noticed an appreciable difference between roctane and caffeinated gu, except for the price!!

                      This is the first gel that actually makes you feel as if you were coming back from the dead. Love it! Expensive though, so I only use for runs that last over 2 hours.
