  • Description

    Beta Fuel is developed to deliver the maximum amount of carbohydrate in a 2:1 ratio of Glucose to Fructose whilst limiting GI distress. 2:1 ratio sports drinks aren’t new to the market however historically they’re delivered in hypertonic solutions meaning a high risk of stomach upsets. Developed alongside Team Sky, 2018 Giro D’Italia Winners, Beta Fuel is a breakthrough technology delivering the optimal dosage of Carbohydrate whilst maintaining an Isotonic solution.

    Following a number of trials at training camps and Paris Roubaix, Beta Fuel was used at the 2018 Giro D’Italia and was a key component of the fuelling strategy for Team Sky during the iconic ride at stage 19. Facing the challenge of needing to deliver an optimal ratio of carbohydrate on a stage profile where feeding is difficult, Beta Fuel was utilised and led Chris Froome to a stage victory following his solo-attack from 80km out.

    Fuelling requirements for long endurance events (greater than 2.5 hours) are 60-90g of carbohydrate per hour. The ability to deliver such high levels of carbohydrate with minimised risk of GI issues is crucial to performance.
