EnergySource X’treme is a new generation sports drink with a high caffeine content. It contains a carbohydrate formulation of maltodextrin and fructose in a ratio of 2:1 combined with key electrolytes, magnesium and caffeine (300mg / Litre). X’treme is intended as a one-time caffeine dose. Athletes use it for caffeine loading prior to or during a major race, towards the end of a long ride, before or during training for attention and concentration and to increase reaction time.
EnergySource X’treme is not intended for continuous use during training or an event. Excessive amounts of caffeine can lead to side effects like headache, dizziness and gastrointestinal distress. If you wish to use caffeine continuously throughout your training or event, then switch to EnergySource Plus, which has considerably lower caffeine content (60mg/L).
Very occasionally some athletes find that caffeine can increase cramp, so always try in training before racing. If there is a problem then switch to standard EnergySource.
What are energy drinks?
Energy drinks either give you a much needed boost of power during your ride or help you recover quickly afterwards. They are simple to use – simply dissolve the powder with water to the required measurements and you’re ready to go. It’s handy to keep a bottle of energy drink on your bike during a long ride.
Who needs energy drinks?
If you’re riding over 4 hours, it’s definitely a good idea to try energy products. They are formulated to give you specific amounts of carbohydrates and protein, but also give you the urge to drink more, keeping you hydrated.
What are the choices?
Energy drinks come in a wide range of flavours, fruity, exotic or interesting. There are lots of brands to choose from, so it’s really a case of finding the one that works best for you and also tastes the nicest.
What should I buy with it?
A bottle and cage set-up for your bike is ideal for keeping your energy drink close at hand. It’s not advisable to use energy drinks in a hydration pack as the sugar content will make it incredibly difficult to clean. Most brands have accompanying bottles with the measurements already on the side, so you can mix your drink and put it straight on your bike.
Try any energy product out on practice rides in case it has an adverse effect on you or you find that you don’t like the taste.
