The new 15-Serving GU Roctane Energy Gel pouches give you the same great taste and same great benefits you know and love about GU Roctane but in a convenient, trash saving resealable pouch. No more trashing trails with used energy gel packs and gone are your sticky pockets. To help cut the trash GU partnered with Hydrapak to create a custom 5-serving flask and nozzle designed specifically for GU energy gels. The Hydrapak SoftFlask (available separately or as a combo) makes it easy to carry the fuel you need while reducing trail-litter along the way. Less-mess, less-litter, more GU! The Flask holds 5-Servings of Energy Gel and includes marks on the back to measure your fuel. GU Roctane is designed for best use during ultra distance endurance events or multi day activities. Each serve provides you with more cramp busting electrolytes, BCAA’s for extended endurance, citrates and beta-alanine to aid energy and buffer lactic acid, and OKG to help you keep going further for longer, GU Roctane is the ultimate in ultra energy gels. GU Roctane Energy Gel stands out from original GU Energy Gel with more sodium, an electrolyte that aids in hydration, and even more branched-chain amino acids (leucine, valine, and isoleucine) that reduce mental fatigue and decrease muscle damage than our original GU Energy Gel. The amino acid beta-alanine helps promote formation of the intramuscular buffer carnosine to buffer lactic acid and beat the burn, while ornithine alpha-ketoglutarate helps with muscle repair. Each 100-calorie gel contains a blend of carbohydrates from maltodextrin and fructose, that use non-competing pathways to help maximize carbohydrate absorption and utilization while reducing stomach upset. Fill it with Energy Gel from our new 15-Serving pouches, fuel with it, and reuse it!

Our new 15-Serving GU Roctane Energy Gel deliver the same proven ingredients as our single-serve packets.
Ideal carbohydrate ratio – A Blend of glucose to fructose can help your body use more of the carbohydrates you ingest during training or racing. Research shows that a combination of these two carbohydrates is better than glucose or fructose alone.
More key electrolytes – Sodium and potassium help to properly maintain hydration
More Branch Chain Amino Acids (Leucine, Valine, Isoleucine) – Shown to serve as a fuel source (when taken with carbohydrates), reduce muscle damage, enhance recovery and delay fatigue all critical during intense or long efforts
More Histidine (Amino Acid) – Can promote muscle buffers to prevent accumulation of lactic acid in muscles during exercise
More Caffeine Proven to stimulate the central nervous system and reduce pain perception leading to prolonged exercise and delayed fatigue. This flavour contains no caffeine
Ornithine Alpha-Ketaglutarate (OKG) – included to support recovery by helping block the catabolic effects of various hormones that cause muscle trauma
Each serving contains 100 calories from a finely tuned ratio of complex (maltodextrin) and simple (fructose) CARBOHYDRATES that deliver energy through non-competing pathway to increase utilization and prevent bonking by sparing muscle glycogen reserves. ELECTROLYTES (sodium and potassium) maintain water balance and aid in optimum hydration. AMINO ACIDS are the building blocks of protein and are crucial to performance because of a range of benefits including: reduced mental fatigue, faster muscle repair and recovery, reduced soreness and muscle fatigue, and improved function of your immune system. Some flavours also include CAFFEINE which can enhance performance by increasing focus and concentration and decreasing perceived effort. Consume one serving of GU Energy Gel or GU Roctane Energy Gel 5 minutes before and every 45 minutes during activity. Wash down with your favourite GU Hydration Drink or water for optimum absorption.
Do I have to refrigerate unused portions of the 15-serving GU Energy Gel after I open it?
Nope! There’s no need to refrigerate Gels after opening. Store your GU Energy Gel for up to one-month after you open the 15-Serving pouch. Just store it in a cool and dry place.
Is it hard to get all of the Energy Gel out of the Hydrapak flask?
The customized soft flask has an easy to remove twist-top, which enables easy access for cleaning. For optimal results, wash by hand under warm water with soap and let it dry completely before its next use. Do not wash in a dishwasher.
Is the flask and nozzle hard to use during activity?
The customized high-flow nozzle by Hydrapak makes it easy to dispense your Gel, and the soft flask lets you squeeze as you go to make sure you get every last bit. Bonus! You can twist the nozzle with your mouth, which makes it possible to fuel up with only one hand!
What if I don’t need to bring 5-servings of energy Gel? How will I know how much I’m bringing?
The Hydrapak Gel Flasks have convenient markings to help you get the right amount of servings. One serving of GU Energy Gel is 1.1 oz., which means you can also use a food scale to portion out the exact amount of Gel you need.
