Usage

Roctane Ultra Endurance Energy Gel packs 100 calories into every packet. It’s an ideal serving size to suck down 15 minutes before training or racing in order to top off your electrolyte and glucose stores, followed by one every 30-45 minutes along the way, washed down with a few sips of fluid.

For optimum results, always drink at least 24-30 ounces of fluid per hour during training and racing.

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 (gel - OKG for muscle recovery, vitamin E as an antioxident; drink - taurine to help heart and muscle function, beta-alanine to help inrease 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 total calories including gels, solids and drinks.

FAQ

When should I use Roctane Ultra Endurance Energy Gel?

Roctane ultra endurance energy gel was designed to help provide nutritional support for prolonged exercise. Therefore, you will find Roctane especially beneficial during exercise which will require extra recovery time, and where you need help with preventing fatigue, increasing concentration, focus, and decreasing perceived effort. So when you are going big – use Roctane. During a more typical workout where you looking mainly for good tasting, easy to consume calories with added electrolytes – use original GU.

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

This will help tailor energy intake to your needs, and provide the beneficial ingredients found in both the gel and drink.

Why does Roctane have the same amount of calories as original GU?

You find 100 calories of carbohydrates in both Roctane and GU because there’s no reason to add more. The gut can only absorb so many calories at a time during exercise, especially when most of your blood is being delivered to your hard-working muscles. Add too many calories during intense exercise and your body can’t send enough blood to your gut to digest the carbs, making your gut cramp, forcing you to slow down.

Does one Roctane Gel equal two GU Energy Gels?

No. Roctane is designed to help provide nutritional support for prolonged exercise. The extra ingredients help combat central fatigue, promote muscle recovery, help buffer a decrease in pH from exceeding lactate threshold, and help increase muscle focus and decrease perceived effort. Two original GU energy gels won’t provide this extra nutritional support.

How will the added electrolytes and amino acids in Roctane Gel help me in an endurance event?

Roctane contains more sodium than the original GU. Sodium is the main electrolyte lost in sweat, and supplementation with sodium can help prevent cramping as well as minimize the chances of hyponatremia (low blood sodium from drinking too much plain water). The amino acids in Roctane gel serve several important functions, including acting as a fuel source for working muscle, and helping promote muscle recovery following exercise. Importantly, the amino acids in Roctane gel are branched chain amino acids that have been shown to help prevent central fatigue by competing with tryptophan for transport across the blood brain barrier. So the electrolytes and amino acids in Roctane gel can help increase performance above and beyond what is possible with the original GU alone.

Why does Roctane cost more than the original GU?

Roctane provides nutritional support beyond the original GU to help maximize performance. In addition to what is in the original GU, Roctane contains more branched chain amino acids and a bit more caffeine – each of which increases our production costs.

Why does Roctane have less vitamin C and E than the original GU?

Roctane does not contain the vitamin C or vitamin E that is in GU in order to make room for the additional volume of ingredients in Roctane. Since it is fairly easy to obtain your daily recommended intake of vitamins C and E by ingesting one or more packets of original GU, we removed them in favor of accommodating increased concentrations of ingredients which are beneficial on those really hard days. If you are concerned about getting enough antioxidants, we suggest including a packet of original GU, in addition to Roctane, as part of your nutrition program during intense training and racing.

Should I use Roctane differently on race-day?

No, make sure to pre-load your body with a packet or two of Roctane and chase with water approximately 15 minutes before the start. In fact, if you use Roctane on race day you should make sure to use it during training as well. Your gut adapts to digest and transport dietary carbohydrate if “trained” to do so by eating carbohydrate during your training sessions. So eat Roctane during training, and your gut adapts, making it easier to process the calories consumed when you really need it – during a race.

Is Roctane Kosher?

GU Energy Gel, Roctane, GU Electrolyte Brew, and GU Recovery Brew are all certified Kosher. Chomps are not.

    The Strawberry Kiwi are my go-to Gu packets. Those along with Pineapple and the occasional caffeinated ones fuel all of my runs and other physical activities!

    Posted by Bryan on 7/1/2014
    I've been using Roctane for long distance training and racing for several years now. I love the extra mental boost that Roctane provides when deep into an Ironman or Marathon. It's also very easy on the GI tract. This stuff really works and helps maintain focus on your race. The Island Nectars flavor is simply wondrous!!

  • Best flavors!
    Overview
    Posted by Kyle on 4/3/2014
    I have to admit that I find myself buying Roctane way more frequently than I do the regular gels. Part of this though is because the Roctane line has the best flavors. The Island Nectar and other fruit flavors are awesome. I can't really speak as to whether or not they gave me an advantage over using a regular gel but the flavors made me much more willing to eat them as necessary which is where the real benefit lies, for me anyways.
  • Incredible!
    Overview
    Posted by Stu on 3/27/2014
    Decided to do a 275km (172mi) ride last summer. I had a whole load of Gu's that had been given to me. I couldn't believe how easily I accomplished the ride and how great I felt at the end. From here on out Gu and Gu-roctane will be my fuel of choice for training and racing.. oh and it all tastes AWESOME!!
  • Chocolate Rasberry Roctane Endurance Gel
    Overview
    Posted by Julian on 3/22/2014
    Just got done with a 10 miler and the only thing that got me thru the last three miles were my Chocolate Rasberry Roctane Endurace Gel. Love the flavor and the energy that I get from this product and the most important thing is that it does not upset my stomach. I can not imagine a run without my endurance gel. Love this product for the flavor and the energy I get. Thanks.
  • nice boost
    Overview
    Posted by Ryan on 3/11/2014
    I tried this while testing out a new bike. usually I get tired around the 10 mile so I took this at 7 miles. I was able to hit the 10 mile mark and go another 5 before I brought the bike back to the store. gives you a nice boost of energy but not overly jittery like a red bull.
  • Swear this liquid gold shaved off 7 minutes of my race time....

    Posted by Jess on 3/3/2014
    This stuff.... UH- MAZE - ING! Last Summer I was training for my first Half Marathon (Oktoberfest in Leavenworth) and had only tried the Gu Gel in the past. I decided to get ballsy and try this Roctane out, and I SWEAR it shaved off 7 minutes of my personal best. Exhilarating race, surprised at how well I did! Gu is my product of choice, especially when it comes to endurance sports and training. Favorite flavor is Blueberry Pomegranate, can't wait to try the Strawberry Kiwi!

    On my most recent long run, I tried Roctane and loved the results. I typically use GU Gels for my runs, but the the Roctane seemed to boost my mood, mental awareness, and energy. I am a convert to Roctane for all my 20+ mile runs.
