The next evolution of performance energy gels
Energy gels have been around since the mid 1990s. Unfortunately, they have not changed much - until now. Neversecond's C30 Energy Gels are more of a thick liquid than a gel. Mild in flavor with a low sweetness profile, C30 Energy Gels deliver 30 grams of fast-absorbing energy using 2:1 maltodextrin-to-fructose carbohydrate blend. This composition has been extensively tested and proven to fuel very high energy rates with very low potential for gastrointestinal distress. Each energy gel also contains 200mg of sodium to help with fluid delivery and retention.
Our energy gels are formulated for optimal endurance performance
Neversecond Energy Gels, as with all of our C-Series range of fueling products, are the result of working with and listening to top global endurance athletes and teams over a 25-year span. All of the critical product details - the carbohydrate content and composition, the sodium and caffeine level and liquid-like texture - have all been carefully considered in conjunction with the most current scientific research coupled with real world athlete input.
Our gels are isotonic for easier absorption
C30 and C30+ Energy Gels are more of a thick liquid than a standard thicker energy gel, so they can be taken with or without water. C30 Energy Gels are also isotonic energy gels, so they absorb more easily and deliver energy more quickly and efficiently than traditional sports gels.
Fast energy for all athletes & sports
Although energy gels have been used in endurance sports for the past 25 years, their use as a performance tool has exploded in the last 5 years as athletes have come to realize that well-fueled athletes simply perform better and more consistently. Many top World Tour riders and triathletes consume as much as 120 grams of carbohydrate per hour on the bike via sports gels. Runners, historically a bit more hesitant due to the inherent jostling motion associated with running, are also starting to realize the benefits of using running gels to help fuel their performances. With proper gut training, carbohydrate intake can also be optimized to help athletes with the most sensitive stomachs achieve peak performance. The portability of energy gel packs as lightweight, portable fuel makes C30 Energy Gels ideal for both road and trail runners.
A critical part of our fueling system
Unlike other sports gels which use arbitrary nutrient values, C30 Energy Gels are developed as a critical part of our modular C-Series system of products. C30 Energy Gels can be combined with any of our fuel and hydration drink mixes and energy bars to provide a personalized solution that addresses both athlete preferencs and practicality.
How are Neversecond Gels different than other energy gels?
C30 Energy Gels are a 2:1 glucose-to-fructose energy gel. They deliver 30g of fast-absorbing energy with a lower risk of stomach problems when compared with other gels. You can take C30 Energy Gels with or without water. They are also not sickly sweet like most other electrolyte gels on the market.
What is the energy source of C30 Energy Gels?
C30 Energy Gels use 2:1 maltodextrin-to-fructose as the carbohydrate source. This delivers energy very efficiently with a reduced risk of gastrointestinal problems when compared with other energy and sports gels.
Are there electrolytes in Neversecond Energy Gels?
Yes. Our gels are an electrolyte energy gel. Sodium is the most critical electrolyte needed by endurance athletes. Sodium helps deliver and retain fluid and is lost through sweat, so replacing sodium is critical to maintaining hydration and performing optimally.
Why are Neversecond Energy Gels larger than other gels?
C30 gel packs are larger than others as they are an isotonic energy gel. Unlike traditional thick gels, Our gels can be taken with or without water. Isotonic energy gels absorb more efficiently than traditional gels and are less likely to cause stomach problems. C30 Energy Gels also have a higher carbohydrate content (30 grams per gel) than most other sports gels.
Are Neversecond Energy Gels natural?
Our gels are as natural as any other energy gels. That is to say - all energy and sports gels are highly processed food supplements. The processing allows them to absorb easily, which is a good thing when you need fast energy without the consequence of gastrointestinal problems.
How often should I take energy gels?
How many Neversecond Energy Gels you need depends on the duration and intensity of your activity. We use precise 30-gram increments (a C30 Energy Gel contains 30 grams of carbohydrate) because the “gold standard” fueling guidelines for endurance athletes are based on 30-gram hourly increments.
The shorter the duration and lower your intensity, the less carbohydrate you need per hour and per session. The longer the activity and harder your intensity, the more carbohydrate you need per hour and per session. You can easily determine your carb intake for any session or race using our Neversecond Guidance System. Simply enter a few details about your session or race, and you will receive an accurate science-based fueling recommendation.
Are there any side-effects of taking Neversecond endurance energy gels?
There should not be any side-effects associated with consumption of C30 Energy Gels with normal use. It is important to remember that these are a food supplement for sport. They are not intended to be a substitute for a healthy diet. As C30+ Energy Gels contain 75mg of caffeine (similar to a cup of coffee), it is important to monitor your caffeine intake. We do not recommend taking more than 1 gel with caffeine per hour, and no more than 3 caffeinated gels per day.
