Usage

Exact Roctane intake depends on the intensity of your pursuit and your body weight and fitness level. The fitter you are and the more you are used to consuming carbohydrate during exercise and the more Roctane you can eat each hour, up to approximately 340 total calories including gels, solids and drinks.

Combine Roctane Energy Gel with Roctane Energy Drink, original GU Energy Gel, GU Electrolyte Brew and GU Recovery Brew for the ultimate in sports hydration, fueling and recovery. Take one gel 15 minutes before training or competition and then one gel every 30-45 minutes during exercise. Drink Roctane Energy Drink or Electrolyte Brew throughout your training or racing, and drink Recovery Brew within 30 minutes after you’ve stopped.

 

How can I use Roctane Gel with Roctane Ultra Endurance Energy Drink?

If you already use Roctane gel, you can substitute some Roctane gel for Roctane energy drink. This will help tailor energy intake to your needs, and provide the beneficial ingredients found in both the gel and drink. While many ingredients are similar in the two products (carbohydrates, branched chain amino acids, histidine, and caffeine) each has unique ingredients which may also help improve performance. Therefore, using both products will help provide every nutritional advantage possible to athletes who demand the best from themselves and their nutrition. For many athletes, all they may need during prolonged exercise is one 21oz bottle of Roctane drink and 1 Roctane gel per hour for 340 total calories including gels, solids and drinks.

FAQ

When should I use Roctane Ultra Endurance Energy Drink?

Roctane Ultra Endurance Energy Drink was specifically formulated for the demands of prolonged, ultra-endurance exercise. Specifically, events lasting 4+ hours. The drink is calorically dense, since consuming enough calories during these types of events can be a challenge. Caffeine is included to increase mental acuity, increase performance, and decrease perceived effort – all of which tend to go south during prolonged efforts. Taurine is included to help combat heart and skeletal muscle fatigue – as it has been shown to help increase contractility – which is especially important during long efforts where fatigue management is a big issue. The addition of beta-alanine and histidine help buffer acid caused by going over lactate threshold, and amino acids help prevent muscle damage and aid with muscle recovery.

While the drink was formulated for the demands of ultra-endurance exercise, this drink may be particularly useful during intense workouts as well such as a workout where an athlete will be performing 4 x 15’ threshold repeats for example. This kind of intense effort is one where caffeine may increase concentration and help the athlete push through the entire workout. Additionally, this type of workout is very intense and it can be a challenge to consume enough calories – making an energy dense drink beneficial and efficient. Combine that with increased buffering capacity and helping to speed recovery, the Roctane Ultra Undurance Drink may ergogenically benefit many athletes during intense workouts.

How can I use Roctane Ultra Endurance Energy Drink with Roctane Gel?

If you already use Roctane Gel, you can substitute some Roctane Gel for Roctane Energy Drink. This will help tailor energy intake to your needs and provide the beneficial ingredients found in both the gel and drink. While many ingredients are similar in the two products (carbohydrates, branched chain amino acids, histidine, and caffeine) each has unique ingredients which may also help improve performance (gel – vitamin E as an antioxidant; drink – taurine to help heart and muscle function, beta-alanine to help increase muscle buffering capacity). Therefore, using both products will help provide every nutritional advantage possible to athletes who demand the best from themselves and their nutrition. For many athletes, all they may need during prolonged exercise is one 21oz bottle of Roctane drink and 1 Roctane gel per hour for 340 calories and extra nutritional support to maximize performance.

Why does Roctane Drink cost more than Electrolyte Brew?

Roctane Energy Drink has many extra ingredients compared to electrolyte brew that increase production costs. These include most of the ingredients that make it like nothing else on the market – a special maltodextrin to increase energy density and improve consistency, caffeine and taurine, beta-alanine, histidine and branched chain amino acids.

What role does beta alanine and caffeine play in Roctane Energy Drink?

Beta-alanine is used to supplement the athlete’s diet to increase muscle buffering capacity. Beta-alanine is one of the limiting components of an abundant muscle protein called carnosine that help buffer changes in muscle pH during exercise. It has been shown that supplementing beta-alanine can help increase muscle carnosine content, and therefore increase muscle buffering capacity and the ability to minimize changes in muscle pH during intense efforts over lactate threshold.

Caffeine has been shown in many studies to increase exercise performance. Whether the performance task was short or long – caffeine helps athletes perform at their best. It can help increase performance by decreasing perceived effort as well as helping athletes maintain focus and concentration.

Why is taurine good for endurance sports?

Several studies have shown that during prolonged exercise (half Ironman and Ironman events), the ability of the heart to pump blood (myocardial contractility) is decreased, which can lead to decreased exercise capacity. Similarly, prolonged exercise also promotes skeletal muscle fatigue. Taurine helps to maintain heart and muscle function by helping with calcium handling and may help decrease fatigue in these tissues during prolonged exercise. Additionally, taurine has been shown to increase muscle function with aging, and when combined with caffeine increases performance during a 1 hour cycling time trial.

Will I get dehydrated from caffeine in a sports drink?

A key question regarding caffeine in a sports drink revolves around the well known diuretic effect of caffeine to promote dehydration. Several studies have shown that caffeine ingestion during exercise does not influence weight loss, sweat rates, urine output and plasma volume compared to water alone. This may be due to decreased kidney blood flow during exercise which is proportional to exercise intensity, which minimizes urine production. Therefore, it appears that caffeine will not lead to diuresis if consumed during exercise – and will not contribute to dehydration.

    I use Roctane Brew for long rides when I am going to be out for 3 or more hours. It give me what I need so my body does not canabalize protein from muscles and I can go farther and recover faster after the ride. Roctane EVERY time does the job. Thanks GU

    Overall this product was really good, but I feel like it doesn't improve upon the regular Gu Brew enough to be worth the cost. This is just a personal opinion but while training for my marathon and ultra I slightly preferred the regular Gu Brew only because I enjoyed the flavor more. Great stuff but just not for me!
  • Perfect for Training

    I love this for my brick workouts - carry bottles on the bike and slam 32oz during the transition to run. It tastes good and gives me the jump i need to start the run!
  • True to the Roctane family

    Just like the Roctane gels, Roctane Brew is exactly what everyone that can't do gels has been waiting for. So good it seems like cheating.
  • Great for long training

    I love this for long marathon training runs, and also for my long bike rides of over 2+ hours. My favorite on the bike, probably because it is so much easier to reach for a drink instead of messing with a gel, chomps, or something like that. The taste is good, light and not hard on the stomache. Great stuff!
