About Turbo+ Gel
Turbo+ Gel is a carbohydrate energy gel containing a blend of caffeine, beta-alanine and L-carnitine with the unique addition of menthol extract. This blend of ingredients is formulated to help improve exercise performance during high-intensity exercise by delivering energy and buffering against fatigue whilst also helping to reduce the increased thermal stress that occurs with indoor turbo training sessions.
To understand the science behind our Turbo+ range, check out our blog here.
Exercise capacity and performance is often reduced when exercising in hot conditions due to both elevated physiological strain and feelings of thermal discomfort.
One of the main contributors to the early onset of fatigue in hot environments is enhanced feelings of discomfort and a perception of being hot and uncomfortable. With this in mind, Turbo+ Gel is formulated with menthol extract to improve the ability to tolerate such heat stress by reducing thermal perception through the refreshing and cooling sensations that menthol evokes.
Through these mechanisms, menthol consumption during exercise makes it easier to breathe and results in improvements in both time trial and time to exhaustion exercise performance.
In addition to its cooling effects, Turbo+ Gel is also formulated with a blend of caffeine, beta-alanine and L-carnitine so as to enhance performance during the high-intensity intervals that are typical of indoor turbo sessions. Caffeine enhances performance through its stimulatory effects on the central nervous system (CNS), whereas beta-alanine and L-carnitine facilitate improved muscle buffering. Collectively, all three ingredients have the ability to enhance exercise performance.
Consume 1 Turbo+ Gel 30-60 mins prior to exercise.Warning: High caffeine content: Contains 150mg per gel. Do not exceed more than 1 gel per day. Not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Keep out of reach of children. Store in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight. Food Supplements should not be used as a substitute for a balanced diet.

Boosted my 5km time
Really fresh taste
Fantastic gels that really do give you a boost before an indoor workout. I will even try them for an outdoor hills session at some point.
Taste is okay and a good hit of caffeine and beta alanine. Strangely seem to sweat even MORE on the turbo when using these!
Mr Matthew Fisher
Not as tasty as the citrus flavour.
I've tried most gels on the market but SiS gels seem to work best for me. Thought I'd give these a try, worked perfectly as expected on a long run. The flavour though is a bit strange, I wouldn't say it was blueberry, more like Buttercup syrup cough medicine my mum used to give me! Not unpleasant but something you would definitely like or not like!
Really effective gel, for me it's a gentle lift and continuing energy across the run and the day.
First time using this product, very impressed. Will be ordering more.
Great for work indoor Wattbike sessions love the stuff
Gain preworkout power
Another recent addition - providing increased variation in my sons supplement regime

Excellent product, great taste and can fell the effect.
Nice tasting gels
The taste was like eating toothpaste
Love these new gels. One before an indoor bike session such as a zwift race, really makes a difference and gives you a kick to get going
Too much like mouthwash
I haven’t used these yet. But looking forward to seeing what they can do
Tastes like medicine but seems to work
The minty flavour is very different. It definitely made me more alert
