  • Unleash the Power of Protein:Accel Gel® is the first energy gel specifically designed to deliver rapid energy to working muscles. Accel Gel is the only energy gel that contains the patented 4:1 carb-protein ratio and a combination of three carbohydrates to maximize energy transport and uptake into muscle cells. Accel Gel guarantees instant energy when you need it. A study published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research showed, compared to GU, Accel Gel:

         • Increases endurance by 13%
         • Decreases post exercise muscle damage by 50%

    Accel Gel Keeps Working Even After Your Workout Ends.

Redefining the Energy Equation


More Protein+ Less Carbohydrate = More Endurance+ Less Muscle Damage

Energy gels serve a practical purpose for endurance and cardio athletes. They should deliver rapidly absorbed energy that is quickly transported to working muscles. There are also practical considerations involving taste and consistency. Carbohydrate, usually in the form of easily-digestable sugars, is the only functional ingredient in almost all energy gels except Accel Gel. Building upon a broad base of proven science, Accel Gel was formulated using a 4:1 ratio of carbs to protein as well as three high-glycemic sugars for faster energy transport to muscle cells. The addition of protein provides multiple benefits in terms of improved endurance and a reduction in post-exercise muscle damage. The net result, as shown in the table below, is a superior energy gel.

Ms.
I use these gels primarily on long-distance runs. I prefer them over any other gel I've found for their smoother/more liquid consistency. I don't have to "choke" them down like other gels. They always seem to provide a good energy boost as well.

Mr?
Great fast acting gels. They are not as stiff and sticky as the competitors making them easy to use summer and winter.

WOW
Based on the advice of a salesman at a local bike shop I purchased Accel Gel. I took 3 gels on a recent 77 mile bike ride. That was the first time I tried a bike ride longer than 60 miles. At about mile 55 I started feeling fatigued. Someone in my group asked me if I had any gels and I remembered I had 3 in my back pocket. I took the first Accel Gel and, after 5-10 minutes started feeling strong again. I definitely felt the difference. At about mile 70 I took a second Accel Gel and felt great and strong enough to finish the ride. A short while later, one of the strongest guys in my group started falling behind and was getting dropped. I slowed down to help him finish. I offered him my last Accel Gel and he accepted. He had slowed down to 12-13 mph but then he increased his speed to 19-20 mph. He was very surprised at the effect he had felt after taking the gel. I must say I am very impressed with Accel Gel and plan to take 3 gels on every ride.

Excellent nutrition and consistency
Superior consistency compared to other brands (thinner, easier to swallow). Nice, neutral sweet taste, but not overwhelming. The addition of protein also makes it a superior endurance and recovery product. Just completed my first marathon and I credit these for sustaining me though the race, and also for my rapid recovery afterwards. I felt like I could have run 2-3 days afterwards. Highly recommended, from a 212 lb former strongman (formerly ~260 lbs) turned runner. Yeah, I wish they were cheaper too, but I went through less than a case and a half training for and running the marathon - think how much your running shoes cost.

I would definitely use the product again and recommend it
I tried out two of the gels on my long run this past weekend and only have positive feedback: Packaging was easy to open on run. Consistency was nice and fluid! Came out in one squeeze. Easy to swallow. The flavor (raspberry and key lime) was excellent, fruity but not too sweet. The performance seemed to work. I got through my 16 miles without running out of energy or glycogen. Easily digested.

The best tasting gels(my preference is the Key Lime) I have used, and like many of us I have tried a bunch. All the gel flavors have a great taste that is sweet but not sticky or over powering. The protein in the gel seems to give them just a hint of savory, it's hard to describe but delicious. Beyond all that though, these gels work great! I used them to run several PR's including cutting 15min off my marathon to qualify for Boston. They go down easy and don't give me any stomach issues. I don't do any endurance activity over 1.5hrs without them. Great fueling and I can honestly say I have been able to do long, intense runs and recover faster to continue training since I started using these gels. Accel Gel has taken my training to a new level and I am not looking back!

Great For Golf - Power Packed And Portable!
I'm not a huge "endurance" guy but I always keep a few packets of accel gel in my golf bag and it keeps me going for a long round. I never take a cart either so it's nice to have a light weight energy lift that doesn't weight the bag down. HUGE FAN here, thanks!

Loved the raspberry cream, especially the fact that it's liquid and goes down easier than other gels!

Chocolate - the best for pre-work out and to refuel during. Great taste, goes down easy too.

Effective and instant replenishment!
I use these for the weekend long runs. I have read varying theories on how frequently these need to be consumed, but I take my first at mile 8 to give it time to go through my system and kick in, and then one gel every hour. This has worked well for me, and the product delivers every time. Once I fell short of gels and I could feel the weakness towards the end of the 20-mile run. The gel itself has a decent texture to it. Yes, it is sticky like most gels, but I found this one to be less sticky and more easy to digest compared to GU and Power Bars (the only two other brands that I have tried). Taste wise it is a little sweet, but doesn't have an after taste. It is recommended to take a few sips of water before taking the gel, and then washing it down with 6-8 oz of water. The AccelGel doesn't have the spike and trough that I notice with GU. This keeps energy level high but does not wear off after some time. This was my main conern with GU which is why I switched to AccelGel. The one key ingredient lacking in this Gel is sodium (and actually potassium as well, so that makes two). I used to carry salt packets with me. But now I carry Cliff Shot Blocks to supplement these gels - the bloks are loaded with both these ingredients. The combination works great! The packaging of these gels is fairly easy to open on the run. The only word of advise for people trying these for the first time - squeeze the packet into your mouth when taking these gels. The first time I used this gel, I put the packet in my mouth, and then pressed and pulled from the outside as I bit on the packet. The packet has a aluminum like rigid outer edge, which caught the sides of my mouth and it burnt like crazy all day. Lesson learnt the hard way! Now I simply crush and squeeze the packet from the outside, works great.
