Product Detail & Benefits

Description:

The staples of any energy drink, bar, or gel are carbohydrates. In this regard, Hammer Gel stands alone in today's glutted market of energy products. A look at the ingredient list on the label will tell you why: we use long-chain complex carbohydrates for smooth, consistent energy release. There's only a trace of sugar, so Hammer Gel doesn't set off wild insulin spikes causing "sugar high" and "sugar crash." You won't find our products saturated with cheap, ineffective, commercial-grade sugars, which can ruin health and performance.

Hammer Gel is an easily digested, concentrated source of complex carbohydrates with four amino acids added to enhance performance and prolong energy levels during intense training and competition. Hammer Gel has a syrup-like consistency that mixes easily with water if so desired. You can drink it straight, dilute it, or use it to flavor other Hammer Nutrition fuels. Use it before, during, and after exercise.

Benefits:

Hammer Gel is available in the following delicious flavors: Apple-Cinnamon, Banana, Chocolate, Espresso, Montana Huckleberry, Nocciola, Orange, Peanut Butter, Peanut Butter/Chocolate, Raspberry, Tropical, Vanilla, and Unflavored.

Since 1995, Hammer Gel has been the benchmark of concentrated carbohydrate energy, primarily because of what it doesn't contain—Hammer Gel has no added refined, simple sugars, and no artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners.

Choose either single-serving pouches or cost-effective 26-serving jugs for even, reliable energy, not the "flash and crash" of sugar-loaded products. You get only what's good for you: complex carbohydrates, natural ingredients, and real fruit. The result is a great-tasting concentrated fuel source that goes down and digests easier than other energy gels.

Hammer Gel is versatile as well; you can drink it straight, add it to your water bottle, or combine it with Sustained Energy, HEED, or Perpetuem to create a variety of tasty energy combinations for any length activity—anywhere, anytime.

Notes:

Note: Hammer Flask holds 5-6 servings. Only Espresso and Tropical flavors contain caffeine, 50 mg for Espresso and 25 mg for Tropical per serving.

Product Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HowWEhammer with Hammer Gel We LOVE using Hammer Gel whenever we bike, hike, ski, rock climb, run, or when we need a healthy boost of energy in the middle of a long day at work. It gives us the necessary energy boost without giving us the evil downward spike that would normally make us tired or give us a belly ache. In this picture we biked up two peaks on the continental divide, up Doris Mountain over and down Columbia Mountain. It was a 3.5 hour bike up to the tallest peak, Columbia, and man were we happy to be there! I also had HEED in my water bottle that helped with my Electrolyte levels. Thanks for making a killer product Hammer! ~Britt

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Service I normally ignore companies when they ask for feedback but this was such a positive experience I didn't mind writing a review. I had used the Montana Huckleberry flavored gel before (albeit in single servings) so I knew it was a solid product and great flavor, but I had never ordered anything directly from the company. The shipping was fast (received 3 days after placing order), and in addition to the product I ordered they sent a large amount of literature about their other products as well as a frankly surprising amount of free samples of their other products. They even included a flask for the gel I ordered which I used in a trail race and worked great. Hammer is clearly committed to customer service and they definitely have my loyalty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ironman strong! I trained with Hammer Apple Cinnamon gels, Endurolytes, and HEED. During this year's Louisville Ironman I stuck to what worked and my Hammer nutrition came through for me! The heat reached around 104 heat index but I stayed well hydrated and fueled and completed my first Ironman! Thanks Hammer!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Natural, tasty, easy to digest I like Hammer gels because they taste great, are natural, and digest so quickly. I like the selection of flavours, too. Huckleberry and Espresso are my fav's. I use the gels in training runs, rides, and long river swims, as well as during racing. I recently introduced my brother to the gels, too, who is an ultra runner. He doesn't usually use gels so this is a big deal!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tasty, and manageable even in large doses. Personally I love the Espresso and, if I've got my caffeine level settled, the Vanilla. I managed to handle 12 of them during the bike leg of Ironman Hawaii, and more on the run, craving them much of the time. Here's a picture of my top-tube before a 70.3

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It can be hard to eat on hot days of racing motocross but we stay fueled all day with the awesome tasting espresso hammer gel. We are coffee lovers so it is a double bonus on race day, still getting our espresso just with natural, fuelin g ingredients.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a Difference! Now that I'm regularly running 1-2 hours, a coworker suggested I use this to keep from getting light headed and weak. Jelly cubes were working okay, but seemed too sweet so I wouldn't use them later in my route. On my first try with the Hammer Gel, I was feeling better within less than a mile. It wasn't too sweet and seemed to last much longer. I'm looking forward to learning how to use this earlier in my run to avoid getting weak in the first place. Thanks for this useful product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best fuel for >50 mile rides. I found Hammer in 2008. Hammer Gel was the first product tried. Really like that they don't use simple sugars. Love the selection of flavors -- and they keep adding new tastes. For a quick 2 hour ride I stuff a couple individual servings in my jersey pocket. For longer rides the flask rides back there. Have even blended flavors of Hammer Gel in the flask for even more diversity in taste. (You have to try Peanut Butter + Montana Huckelberry = PB+J sandwich)
