I moved to this product because it has higher levels of electrolytes and is more energy dense than standard sports drinks. I sweat profusely, lose electrolytes quickly and am prone to cramping during long distance runs. This has been a big help for me and has made a huge difference in terms of energy levels and performance during long race events. If I'm running I tend to split the recommended dosage between two bottles, so that each is at half strength. Or, if I'm cycling I will take one bottle at full strength and one bottle of plain water, and will then alternate. Otherwise, I find that taking it full stength during a long run, together with gels, is too much to take and will induce nausea. The flavor is very pleasant, it's not overly sweet and has no chemical taste.
Holy cow!! Amazing!
I am nearing the end of my first container and panicked when I realized I might have to do some long runs or rides without my Roctane! I can't believe how much energy this gives me. It has a nice mild flavor and mixes well. No chunks. I am very picky about liquid flavors and I have been using the berry. It's quite good. I think he caffeine helps. I use 1 scoop before exercise lasting an hour or more and I use 2 scoops per bottle on the bike and about 1 bottle per hour. I switched from Accelerade to Roctane- it has a better flavor and mixes better. Hope my new order gets here quickly.

Works But Pricey
I wanted a fuel beverage that contained caffeine for an Olympic Triathlon and this was the only one I could find. The Tropical Fruit flavor was tasty but didn't sit heavy in my stomach on the ride. I don't like to over caffeinate on workouts, but during a race the lift really helps. For the 1.72lb container you get 12 servings. For the same $$ you can get a 4.5lb container of Cytomax with 81 servings (minus the caffeine).
A great product for long distance triathlons!
I am a longtime Roctane gel user and have just converted to the roctane drink mix for long-course ironman triathlons! Specifically, this product is great for the bike course (one bottle per hour) when you need to consume more carbs and calories. The formula contains the perfect combination of high calories, high carbs, a descent amount of sodium, and is a drink that tastes very light. I supplement it with additional sodium/electrolytes and just had an exceptional half-ironman and a strong Olympic triathlon.
In addition to sharing my complete satisfaction with the nutritional make-up of the product, I would also like to share the constructive feedback on the taste...The grape and tropical are great; however, the lemon-lime tastes like a tin can and I can substantiate the poor taste described in other on-line product reviews.
This formulation works great and simplifies the nutrition plan for long-distance endurance sports!
I would buy this product again and again
I use it for marathons and ultra marathons
I would buy it again.
I used it twice and liked it.
Great for marathon training.
