Maurten Starter Pack
Did you know 3 out of 4 teams at the Tour de France are using Maurten (even though they are sponsored by other brands)? From the Tour de France to the 2-hour marathon record, or winning Ironman Kona last year, Maurten is the new choice of pro athletes.
Here’s what you get with the Maurten Starter Pack:
- 2 X Gel 100
- 2 X Gel 100 Caf 100
- 1 X Drink Mix 320
- 1 X Drink Mix 320 CAF 100
- 1 X 500ml Maurten Bottle
500ml Maurten Bottle
This bottle has a special mark to allow you to fill it to its optimum levels! This helps you get the correct hydrogel consistency with the drink mixes to avoid any mess.
Maurten 320 is the powerhouse version of Maurten favoured by elite athletes, especially runners when carrying fluid with you is challenging. It provides 320 calories per 500 ml bottle. Use the 320 for your high-intensity workouts and for sure on race day. Be sure to use precisely 500 ml of water with each packet, not more, not less. Otherwise, the hydrogel won't form properly.
Maurten Drink 320 CAF 100
Maurten 320 CAF 100 is the caffeinated powerhouse version of Maurten favoured by elite athletes, especially runners when carrying fluid and extra energy with you is challenging. It provides 320 calories and 100mg caffeine per 500 ml bottle. Use the 320 CAF 100 for your high-intensity workouts that require an extra oomph and for sure on race day. As always, having the exact water measurement recommended by Maurten is key for the hydrogel to properly form!
So how is this "Gel" different? It is packaged in a similar one-time-use packet like others but that's the only thing that is the same. Its texture is more like Jello and for sure easy to take down. The Gel 100 contains 60% carbohydrates, comes in 40g servings and you don't need to wash it down with water. (YES! No, water.....we're in!) Tasting like flat lemonade, you could almost say it’s flavourless like Maurten's other products.
This new Gel 100 CAF 100 will deliver you 25g of carbs, 100mg of Caffeine, and also have 22g of Sodium for added electrolytes. Plus, Maurten's Hydrogel Technology enables you to consume up to 100g of carbs per hour without stomach distress.
The best part is that Maurten is for everyone. While it is a big advantage for Pro Athletes, it is a HUGE advantage for everyday athletes. Providing you the fuel so that you have the same energy and power at the end of your workout than you did at the beginning.
Maurten is sports fuel reinvented, this revolutionary carbohydrate-rich hydration mix is widely used by the best marathoners, cyclists and triathletes in the world.
It gently combines two crucial elements for you to use during your run or ride: A high concentration of energy and carbs are encapsulated in a unique hydrogel technology, allowing for smooth transport of carbs into the intestine where they are absorbed. This reduces the risk of experiencing stomach issues by introducing the nutrients at a rate that your digestive tract can keep up with.
Mix Maurten Drink Mix 160 and 320 with water, and you’ll have a liquid sports drink containing high concentrations of maltodextrin and fructose. The drink instantly converts to hydrogel in the acidity of the stomach, encapsulating the carbohydrates. The hydrogel then enables a smooth transportation of the drink through the stomach to the intestine where the water, salt and carbohydrates are absorbed.
