This product has been carefully formulated to deliver TORQ’s unique blend of multiple-transportable carbohydrates and electrolytes to the working muscles extremely quickly and efficiently using research-proven 2:1 Maltodextrin:Fructose technology and all 5 key electrolytes.
This gel also contains 89mg of natural caffeine delivered via Guarana Extract. Caffeine has been found to increase alertness, mental agility, muscle function and assist the fat-burning process among other benefits.
TORQ Gel forms part of the TORQ Fuelling System, so can be used alongside TORQ’s energy drinks, bars and chews to fuel optimal performances. Please take the time to read about the TORQ Fuelling System by clicking HERE and ensure that you get the most out of this product.
Each TORQ gel (whether caffeinated or not) provides 30 grams of multiple-transportable carbohydrates (1 TORQ Unit), which is a significantly greater concentration than many brands on the market today featured in larger heavier packages. For optimal performances, our TORQ Fuelling System recommends consuming 2-3 TORQ Units per hour which can be achieved through consuming a variety of fuelling products as illustrated in the table below. Consuming a TORQ Gel is simply one method of ingesting a TORQ Unit.
The higher your perspiration rates, the more TORQ Energy Drink you will need to consume relative to our more concentrated fuelling units – TORQ Gels, TORQ Bars and TORQ Chews. All of our fuelling products are optimised with multiple-transportable carbohydrates, the only difference between them is the texture; Smooth, Soft or Chewy. Again, this interaction between TORQ’s fuelling products is explained fully HERE on our Fuelling System page and the illustration below summarises the concept nicely.
PLEASE NOTE: This product contains HIGH LEVELS OF CAFFEINE and should be used alongside our regular non-caffeinated energy gels and other Fuelling System products to achieve optimal performances. The beneficial role that caffeine plays in sports performance is discussed in the ‘Technical Information’ tab and comprehensively in the following article.
TORQ Gels are available in single 45g tubes and boxes of 15 (15 X 45g). Sample Packs are also available and you can also build a Mixed Flavour Box on this website.
Each TORQ Gel contains 30g of multiple-transportable carbohydrates.
The TORQ Fuelling System page of this website clearly explains how TORQ Gel works alongside TORQ’s other fuelling products (TORQ Energy Drink, TORQ Bar and TORQ Chew). TORQ Gel represents the fastest possible method of consuming 30 grams of carbohydrate (1 TORQ Unit), so is suitable for use at all exercise intensities and is especially favoured during high intensity racing or training when heavy breathing makes consuming a TORQ Bar or TORQ Chew more difficult.
For these reasons, we advise combining TORQ Energy Drink or TORQ Hydration Drink with TORQ Energy Gels during higher intensity efforts and factor in TORQ Bars and TORQ Chews over the longer distances, where exercise intensities are lower, for variety. Of course, the beauty of the TORQ Fuelling System is that the choice is yours and we accept that everyone has different preferences.
Please take the time to watch this short video to learn how the TORQ’s fuelling products work together as part of the TORQ Fuelling System:
TORQ Gels are extremely popular with runners and can be used as a single fuel source at 2-3 TORQ Units per hour with hydration being addressed separately. Please watch the video below if you’re a runner and learn how TORQ Gels can be combined with water from feed stations during events or with TORQ Hydration Drink when perspiration rates are particularly high:
You don’t have to be a runner to use TORQ Gels and TORQ Hydration Drink together either. In this article we explain how to seamlessly incorporate TORQ Hydration Drink into the Fuelling System if it’s easier/preferable for you to do so.
HIGH LEVELS OF CAFFEINE: Please bear in mind that each TORQ Gel (with Guarana) contains 89mg of caffeine. People have different tolerance levels to caffeine and you will need to work out a caffeine intake strategy based on your individual circumstances. This will involve combining this product with other non-caffeinated Fuelling System products in the TORQ range.
