Get a little kick with Science in Sport Caffeine+Energy Gels

My Review of Science in Sport Gels

Disclaimer: I received SIS GO Energy+Caffeine gels to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review, find, and write race reviews!

The (not so) secret is out – Science in Sport is my preferred nutrition source for long runs/training. You might remember my previous posts on their Isotonic Gels and Hydro Tabs. In this review, I want to speak specifically about the SIS GO Energy+Caffeine Gels (75 mg). I received a 6 pack of Orange flavor gels, which I was pretty excited about as I had not tried this flavor yet. I read up a little on the “Which Gel, When?” from the Science in Sport site and then decided to test out the caffeine gel the next week on my longer run.

I don’t know what the weather is like where you are this summer, but in Kentucky, it’s usually already 80+ degrees with 80+% humidity by 8 am. This weather kind of slows me down and definitely can make me feel sluggish on my runs, especially towards the end of the run. I have to admit on my first 2 hour run with this gel, I felt great. I took this gel about an hour before the end of my run, in conjunction with the electrolyte gels, and I felt good at the end of the run and in the hours after the run. The gel is easy to take and does not bother my stomach at all; I cannot say that for many gels I have tried in the past. I think that the easy of use along with the quality of the outcome on my runs is really what sells this gel for me.

Pros for me:

  • They are isotonic and can be taken without water
  • 22 grams of carbs per gel
  • Easy to take
  • Vegan and allergen friendly

Cons for me:

  • Packets are sometimes difficult to open (I have learned to start the tear before my run so I don’t struggle to open them while I am running!)
  • They aren’t sold in many stores in my area so I have to think to order ahead online before I am out!

  1. I think these gels are awesome! Due to my stress fracture, I haven’t been running (or even power walking) for the past six weeks, but these gels worked well for me two years ago (26.2 training). Also, I’ve used them for cycling, and they are wonderful!
