Gel 160

Product Description

Gel 160 uses the same Maurten hydrogel technology that is proven to work for athletes — just more. Encapsulating 40 grams of carbohydrates in each 65-gram sachet. This is still the Gel. Still the cleanest. Still the realest. Still no colors. Still no preservatives. Still hydrogel — that’s the innovation.

Gel 160 is built by harnessing hydrogel technology — utilising just 6 natural ingredients. A biopolymer matrix, filled with a blend of fructose and glucose (ratio of 0.8:1) makes it easier to tolerate the uptake of high concentrations of carbohydrates per hour while training and racing.

And furthermore

Going long? Take more. It’s that simple. Gel 160 is for athletes who want more energy in each gel. In endurance sport — to maintain performance — it’s important to fuel regularly. Sometimes it’s not easy. We fuel when we can. Hectic racing and tough conditions can impact when we 
 try to eat and drink. Every fueling moment needs to count. And the further you go, the more carbs you need to sustain performance. Gel 160 helps athletes achieve the right amount of carbs per hour — no matter the situation.

You asked for it

Maurten works closely with athletes — performance testing and listening to their feedback from real situations. There was a consistent message — “To get more carbs on longer sessions, can we have a bigger gel?” Maurten looked at the science and it made sense. So, they made it. Gel 160 is the result of the close relationship between Maurten and elite sport — all underpinned by a trust in hydrogel technology.

Key Benefits of Gel 160

  • Advanced Energy Blend: The Gel 160 features an exceptional blend of fructose and glucose in a scientifically optimized ratio of 0.8:1. This unique combination provides an unparalleled energy boost, allowing you to perform at your best during intense training sessions or races.

  • Stomach-Friendly Hydrogel Technology: Unlike traditional gels that can cause discomfort, the Gel 160 utilizes innovative hydrogel technology. This technology enables the gel to work in harmony with your stomach, ensuring easy digestion and absorption without the risk of cramps or stomach pains. Say goodbye to gastrointestinal distress and focus on reaching your goals.

  • Natural and Clean Formula: We believe in providing you with fuel that is as pure and natural as possible. The Gel 160 is crafted with care using only six natural ingredients. It is free from added colorants, preservatives, and flavors, making it a clean and reliable source of energy.

  • Carbohydrate-Rich Formula: Each serving of the Gel 160 is packed with 40 grams of carbohydrates. This optimal carbohydrate content provides sustained energy to fuel your muscles and keep you going strong. Whether you're preparing for an event, in the middle of intense exercise, or recovering afterward, this gel delivers the necessary carbohydrates to support your performance.

How does it work?

6 natural ingredients. No preservatives. No artificial flavors or allergens. No mess on your hands or in your pockets. It won't get much cleaner than this.

Gel 100 and Gel 160 use the same patented Maurten Hydrogel Technology with the same ratio of fructose and glucose — 0.8:1. Gel 100 has 25 grams of carbohydrates and Gel 160 has 40 grams.

Gel 160 is well suited to longer endurance races and sessions where fueling opportunities are less frequent. The larger format enables athletes to carry fewer sachets but still benefit from the same proven hydrogel performance.

Both sizes are interchangeable, depending on the training or racing situation. Whether an athlete is doing more or less — the benefits of Maurten hydrogel fueling are the same. It’s a system that enables athletes to fine-tune their fueling strategy.

Maurten Gel 160 enables smooth transportation of carbohydrates through the stomach to the intestines where it’s absorbed — faster — reducing the risk of gastrointestinal distress.
