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, 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nocciola - my new favorite flavor! Never having tried a sample of the new Nocciola flavor, I ordered a full jug of it anyway...I trust Hammer Nutrition (have for many years) and if they say it's good, then I believe 'em. Wow - they weren't kidding! Chocolate and Montana Huckleberry used to be my favorite flavors but now Nicciola is taking at the top of the pecking order when it comes time to fill up my gel flask. Hammer - you guys/gals *nailed* this flavor...it's fantastic...either by itself...or mixed with some of the other gels (e.g., vanilla, huckleberry, raspberry). Thanks folks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Taste! Great Effective Product! I use hammer gel before every workout now! This product is outstanding. The taste is great too! I take one hammer gel before each of my workouts and on my longer workouts I'll take another one or two or three... I love hammer gel! My favorite flavor is Huckleberry. Hammer Gel is a must for any type of athlete. It will make a difference and give you better results!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only Gel I Can Tolerate I have problems with eating anything sweet (to include fruit, chocolate, etc), so I have trouble finding fuel for long runs as I cannot tolerate the typical electrolyte drinks, gels, jellies, shots and so on. I found a jackpot with Peanut Butter Hammer Gel! It is minimally sweet and doesn't upset my stomach, while giving me the fuel I need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great source of energy I use this stuff for my long mtb rides that require some punch for big climbs. It truely makes a noticeable difference in my energy levels and leg power over time. It is my go-to gel with my flask. Rasberry is my favorite flavor so far but all of the ones I have used are good. Great stuff...thanks Hammer Nutrition.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but needs a little mixing. I like this product and had it in the single packs. I brought this and have just noticed that its hard to mix and is not mixed as well as the singles. I know it says shake well on the top, but its hard to get it proper taste, and there's some odd taste that overrides the peanut butter if not shook well enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good taste, persistent energy Easy to digest (no stomach upset/discomfort); Smooth delivery of necessary short-term energy without the spiking and falling I've experienced with other products. I've tried Orange, Raspberry, Chocolate, Espresso, Vanilla, and Peanut Butter and like them all. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hammer Gel and Perpetum I've used Hammer gel for many years and love the flavors and how easy it is to digest. I tried Perpetum at this years edition of the Test of Metal Mtn. Bike race and could not believe how good I felt during this endurance event. If you have not tried it, I suggest you do!
Date published: 2013-12-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tastes good and gets the job done The taste isn't as sweet as other gels I've tried which I consider to be a good thing. Using the bulk gel in a flask makes it easy to use without having to stop and deal with an individual serving packet. The flask cleans up easily using hit water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noquemanon Though Hammer was a sponsor, volunteers were stingy with Hammer gel packs, but fortunately I had my 5 oz bottles and electrolytes, which helped me have a great day (goal was safe n fun). However gel did thicken and almost freeze.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for AM Swim Practice! I bought gels because I ran out of gels before a 4.4 mile swim I was doing and these have been great for morning swim practice, the tropical flavor packs a punch with the right amount of caffeine to keep me going at 5am!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good I have been using Hammer Gel for awhile now, and it has worked very well. I use it in long distance running and provides good energy and recovery. I also have a very sensitive stomach and it does well with that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Source of Energey I have been onto Hammer products for close to two years. We finally got a break in the cold and snow so we could ride our bikes into work safely. When we got into work, we decided to take a nice run along the water front just to enjoy some more of the weather while it lasted. I was using Hammer Gel and Endurolytes all the way, as per the recommened dosage on the web site. Because I was keeping on top of my fueling, I was the first in on the bikes and the run. Great stuff Hammer, thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Gel I've used so far (and best tasting!) I started using Hammer Gel a few years ago, after randomly using whatever gel was on sale. Glad I made the switch as I've been having great success with Hammer since that time. Love the lack of simple sugars, which means no crash during races and training. In addition to the consistent energy provided, the gels also taste great! Peanut Butter/Chocolate and Nocciola are amazing, and when it's time for something without chocolate, Huckleberry and Raspberry are my go-to flavors!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Thumb Down, or thumb up? Unfortunately this Hammer Gel not only that it doesn’t work for me but rather reduces my effort output. This is what’s going on: I took the product on a few, very long bike rides. Usually I started taking it after about 60-70 miles. Minutes after I took it, it cut the entire strength from my legs. Just like there was a knife that cut across my thighs. I had no strength to pedal the bike on flat road, let alone any small uphill that came my way. In the beginning I had no idea what happened and I continue to get a couple of pouches after each other. At one point I realized that I felt better when the effects were wearing off rather than after taking the gel. Realizing this I tested the gel again with a different occasion and the answer was clean: it does not work for me. HOWEVER – I went hiking with some friends and they had serious difficulty at one point. I fed them the Gel and it was a great help to them thought the whole hike. So it does not work for me but it works for others.
Date published: 2014-03-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Taste I have tried countless gels and even different varieties of Hammer Gel with not much luck. I have had a lot of GI problems while marathon training so I was at my last straw trying to get it figured out. When Hammer came out with the Peanut Butter flavor, I decided to try yet another gel. The Peanut Butter flavor is delicious and I love the hint of salt. It's the perfect blend. I have had NO GI problems since making the switch! Thank you Hammer!
Date published: 2014-04-01
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Orange, not so much... Let me just start by saying I love Hammer Gel or there would be fewer stars in the Overall Rating. Just not crazy about the orange flavor and texture. Doesn't taste much like orange and seems a bit thinner than the chocolate I usually use. I wanted to change it up a bit after going through several Hammer Gel packs during my first marathon. Think I'll try peanut butter next time. In terms of performance though, can't beat it!
Date published: 2015-04-10
Rated 4 out of 5 by from PEANUT BUTTER When they say peanut butter, they mean peanut butter. If you are one of those people who eat peanut butter out of the jar with a spoon, you will love this. It was a little strong for me, however i did love the consistency. The chocolate gel I have is a little thick. I ended up mixing 2 parts peanut butter, 2 parts chocolate, and one part water in my hammer flask. PERFECT !! nice consistency, great flavor, easy clean up.
Date published: 2014-07-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It WORKS! The most important factor in any athletic nutritional item is that it works. Not that it tastes good or is chic. My energy levels remain stable and my perceived apatite stays in check when using this product. The fact that my Espresso Hammer Gel works and tastes good is a major benefit. I look at it this way... if it tastes good, I'll use it, and if it works like it's supposed to, then what more can I ask for.
Date published: 2014-04-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peanut butter hammer gel!! Yummo Wow. I ordered a mixed order of different hammer gels in different flavors and tried my first one this morning during my long run. The peanut butter is straight up legit. Just like a tablespoon of natural peanut butter! Rock solid energy source (long with a Fizz in my water) and no upset stomach or weird after effects. I think I have found a new product for my training. So excited to try the other flavors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff but... OK. Let me start out by saying that I use this stuff all the time so I'm obviously happy with it. However, there are two things you should know before buying your gels in bulk. First, make sure you like the flavor 'cause there's a lot of it in the bottle. I suggest first purchasing a single pack or a flavor sample pack to be sure you're buying something you like. Second, I haven't found any good smaller container to carry on my bike rides. This stuff is really thick (it's a gel after all). When I put it in the pocket-sized container I found it hard to consume while riding. You can only squeeze so much out and then have to stand by the side of the road with your head bent back like a baby bird waiting for gravity to help. My solution is to fill my pocket container 1/2 full of water and the rest gel. It makes it fluid enough to easily get it out of the container while on the go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stufff I use this on every mtn bike ride. I usually ride early in the morning and don't have time to eat 1-2 hours before my ride. A serving of the hammer gel and then 1 every hour after keeps me riding hard. Then I ear a good breakfast when I get done. Vanilla flavors is mellow and good in the mornings. Tried some of the berries. They are good but too much that early in the morning so I went back to vanilla.
