Don't break your teeth on frozen energy bars—eat Hammer Nutrition's Complex Carbohydrate Energy Gel.

Hammer Nutrition made the Complex Carbohydrate Energy Gel with natural ingredients and real fruit, so you won't have those unhealthy insulin-spike sugar highs. Instead, you get prolonged energy levels from the complex carbohydrates and amino acids in this Hammer Gel. The syrup-like consistency makes it easy to drink straight or add to your water. Unlike nutrition bars that freeze on your winter treks or melt during hot adventure races, the Complex Carbohydrate Gel is easy to eat when you're on the go in any temperature. Choose a 12 pack of banana, espresso, orange, or tropical flavors—or just try them all.

Crappy Ingredients

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Used to use these gels until I started reading the ingredients on the back of the package - no thanks! Maltodextrin! And especially after I found out Hammer Gels contain GMOs I stopped using their products altogether. No thanks!

Surprisingly Tasty

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Endurance athletes know the horrors of throwing down gooey, sugary and disgusting gel after gel during the moments we need energy most. Gone are those days thanks to Hammer Nutrition Complex Carb Gels. Hammer is great for using only complex carbs in their products, which helps your body produce sustainable long term energy, without the jittery sky rocket, then crash cycle from simple sugars in other "endurance" products.

My favorite flavors are apple cinnamon, vanilla, espresso and tropical. All are super good and I've never gotten sick of them like other products.

Perfect for a boost

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love using these during half and full marathons. They are quick and easy and (overall) tasty! I always notice an instant boost in energy and they keep me going the entire race. Tropical isn't my favorite flavor, for what that's worth.

Fruit flavors are the best

Normally I always choose chocolate for everything, but these berry flavored gels are better. The raspberry and huckleberry taste surprisingly natural; almost like fresh, yummy jam. The ingredients list real berries, and it really makes a difference. Easy to digest.

Not for me

I really hate to bash a product, but this is one I just don't like. Maybe its me, because this product has nothing but positive reviews on BC, but I think its just gross. I have tried several flavors from different retail sources and didn't like any of them. The vanilla and espresso were awful, tasted like some kind of chemical to me. I tried huckleberry last summer. It had like grainy chunks in it. I had to chew it! The energy it provides is fine, on par with other brands, but the flavor and texture are just not for me.

My favorite flavor

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Taste like chocolate pudding pack... Really didn't think I would like it. I recieved them as a gift at a race when I forgot mine and was very happy I did.

currently my go-to energy gels

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

What is there to say? These are currently my go-to energy gels; I use them before every ride. Highly recommended and I got them on sale. The raspberry is my favorite flavor right now.

these are the absolute best!!!

I used Gu for a LONG time, but when I went to Hammer, I have never been the same. No more angry refueling on the trail. YUM YUM banana rocks!

Perfect fuel

This is the ONLY gel I've been able to find that tastes okay and doesn't contain a bunch of crappy sugar. Hammer gels have kept me from bonking on countless occasions. My favorite fuel - I really won't even consider doing any kind of lengthy ride without these gels. I love the Vanilla and can stomach the espresso if I need the extra kick of caffeine. GREAT energy.

No Garbage Sugars!

there are many companies making gels - there are just two doing it right. hammer gels have long chained maltodextrin as their sweetener. it's man manipulated and slightly processed but very minimally and it provides a superior source of long lasting energy. clif takes it a healthy step even further by using no man manipulated or processed sugars by using brown rice syrup as it's sweetener. both provide great energy. both have great flavors - try 'em all and figure out which one works for you.

Hammer Gel +...

Hammer is my fuel of choice but I can't stomach countless gels over the course of long hours. My endurance fuel of choice is to mix a thick cake-battery paste of Hammer Perpetuem with Hammer Gel and a little water. I go for plain or vanilla on the gel because I can't handle too-sweet flavors on long, long days. (If you do go for the mix option, try using a food processor to get a nice smooth consistency.) Now Backcountry needs to start selling Perpetuem.

Hammer Energy Gel

I really like Hammer Nutrition products. They've got what you need, and not much more. They don't go too nuts on the flavoring, which is great. The Complex Carbohydrate Energy Gel really does the trick when you're bonking. These gels taste good, and get you're energy up quickly. My personal favorite flavors are Espresso and Apple Cinnamon, which tastes a lot like a delicious gooey apple pie!

Best Goo

OK taste and I really felt the energy help me keep my legs moving.

I Love It

I liked the hammer head better... its like eatting jelly from a pouch. it doesn't get stuck in your teeth. not bad tasting. I'm sticking to hammerhead....

Tastes great - goes down easy

I was introduced to these in a 50 mile footrace in Arkansas... have loved them ever since. The flavors are very tasteful, and the gels are a tad watered down (which is great) so you don't necessarily need water to take them with.

Hammer Gel is the best but the package needs revamping.

Hammer gel is the best but the packet need to be revamped. We use it in race situations where you need to be able to take the gel and use it on the run. The mouth of the packet needs to be wider so that you can get the gel into the mouth with once squeeze of the hand. Otherwise a great product that we're having great results with in long distance biking and running events.

Great recharge for your muscles!

This is great for recharging your muscles after a hard work out as well as getting you ready to hard charge your outdoor activity. Take 15 minutes before you get started and every 45 min as you go and one after you are done and say "So Long" to being tired.
