Brian Smithwrote a review of Acli-Mate Mountain Carton - 30-Pack on August 4, 2014
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
A testimony by Brian Smith, accomplished year-round elite multisport athlete. During the summer months, I am a member of team Griggs Orthopedics Ride, a cycling team based in the Gunnison Valley of Colorado. I use Acli-mate products for training and racing given our high altitude environment. The Endurance and Mountain Sports drinks provide essential vitamins, minerals and electrolytes that help me to train and race in the Colorado Mountains. I regularly ride and train near 10,000 feet. On days I feel tired and fatigued from the previous session I rely on the Mountain mix for its amazing ability to help the body acclimatize. I like to drink a bottle the night before and I find I can maintain my efforts and push further than I could with other drink supplements. Most days I usually supplement with the Endurance drink and feel great during and after workouts. During the winter months I compete on the Griggs Orthopedics ?Crested Butte ski mountaineering team. We regularly train above 10,000 feet. The benefits of Acli-mate are extremely beneficial when ski-mountaineer racing especially during our endurance events of 6-10 hours. Some races like the Grand Traverse include racing at midnight in which we combat sleep deprivation as well as altitude/cold. I can conclude that without proper hydration and supplementation I never would have won a single GT let alone 4 at this point.
