SiS GO Energy + caffeine Gel:

This gel uses the same innovative formulation as the SiS GO Isotonic Energy Gel, with the addition of 75mg of caffeine to help give riders a mental edge to push them through

Need State- Hydration

During intense rides USAC athletes sweat and with this they lose electrolytes. Fluid and electrolytes need replacing or the athlete will become dehydrated . As little as a 2% reduction in body mass due to sweat loss can cause dehydration, which is associated with an increase in heart rate and body temperature. This can decrease mental stimulation, concentration and overall performance. SiS GO Hydro and GO Electrolyte are used before and during rides to optimise hydration

Key Products:
SiS GO Electrolyte:

With 36g of carbohydrate and electrolytes, SiS GO Electrolyte gives riders the opportunity to hit both energy and hydration goals. This will be used before and during rides and used in combination with SIS GO gels.

SiS GO Hydro:

The ultimate low calorie hydration drink,SIS GO Hydro provides the body with an optimal 30 mmol/L of sodium needed for hydration. As a convenient effervescent tablet, this will be dissolved in water and used before, during and after rides.

Need State- Recovery

The aim of recovery is to make the most out of training, increase adaptations and be ready to train again with minimal fatigue. During high intensity rides, the athletes will use up all available carbohydrate stores. This must be replaced, along with essential electrolytes that are lost through sweat to prepare the body to go again. Fast digesting protein must also be consumed to help riders rebuild muscle fibres and reduce muscle breakdown.

Key Product:

REGO Rapid Recovery:

The first recovery formula, REGO provides 20g of protein, 22g of carbohydrates and electrolytes. Riders will use REGO post ride to replace energy stores and help rebuild damaged muscles.
