Product Detail & Benefits

Description:

Never before has such a complete and effective endurance drink been available to athletes.

Perpetuem is a result of several years of research and thousands of miles of testing in a variety of endurance disciplines. Since its introduction in 2003, Perpetuem has allowed athletes to conquer the most extreme workouts and races with complete confidence! Perpetuem represents the ultimate, never-before-available link to satisfying the body's fueling requirements no matter how long or difficult your exercise session or race.

  • Carbohydrates - As with all Hammer Nutrition fuels, we never add simple sugars to the carbohydrate profile. Perpetuem contains a specific maltodextrin, which provides nearly 87% of its caloric composition in long chain carbohydrates.
  • Protein - A calcium-enhanced soy protein isolate known as "XT" makes up nearly 10% of the caloric profile of Perpetuem, the same percentage that is cannibalized from muscle tissue during long, slow endurance workouts. This particular soy protein contains a very high amount of intact, cardiovascular-enhancing isoflavones.
  • Fat - A de-oiled "super lecithin" (extracted from the soybean) is ideal for consistently and reliably fueling the body and maximizing energy production from stored fatty acids.
  • Sweetener - Perpetuem contains Energy Smart®, the same healthy sweetener in Hammer Gel.

Benefits:

Perpetuem is available in the following delicious flavors: Caffé Latte, Chocolate, Strawberry-Vanilla, Orange-Vanilla, and Unflavored.

Welcome to the world's finest endurance fuel specifically formulated for multi-hour to multi-day events. No matter how long or extreme your exercise regimen or races may be, Perpetuem is always up to the task. Thoroughly tested and proven in the world's toughest endurance events, Perpetuem's unique formula—complex carbohydrates, GMO-free soy protein, healthy fats, and key auxiliary nutrients such as sodium phosphate—is unsurpassed for maintaining optimal athletic performance for as long as you want. Perpetuem provides consistent, reliable energy, maximizes stored fat utilization, and buffers lactic acid to prevent muscle fatigue. On the road or trail, Perpetuem is the breakfast, lunch, and dinner of champions!

Extra Benefits:
Carnosine, one of the ingredients in Perpetuem (it's also in HEED, Sustained Energy, and Recoverite), is both a performance aid (a superb lactic acid buffer) and a premium general health nutrient (multiple free-radical scavenging and anti-glycation antioxidant).

Product Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it says I've used several different fueling powders on training rides for triathlon. Of them all, this is one that has kept me strong and sustained my energy during my long rides. The flavor is not overpowering either.. Subtle enough that I don't get sick of drinking it during the 5 plus hour rides.
Date published: 2014-08-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I use this for my long runs which are about 3 hours and my longer bike rides which are about 3-4 hours, it has a mild flavor and sits well on the stomach. I don't seem to need as much gel when using this as it has a few more calories than the Heed and seems to fill me up a bit more.
Date published: 2014-03-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hammer products I have been using hammer nutrition products for many years. My first exposure was in 95' at the Washington State Road Race Championships, where Hammer was one of the sponsors. I've used Hammer Nutrition since that RR and will continue to do so in training and competition.
Date published: 2014-12-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perpetuem a terrific fuel Perpetuem is the endurance fuel I use in ultramarathons. I cover 100 miles in 32-35 hours and my main source of calories is perpetuem, with a few gels and fruit from the aid stations. No stomach trouble and enough fuel to just keep going.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long Distance Hikes Been using Perpetuem for long distance hikes, (15 to 24 miles) works great! I use two Platypus bladders in my pack, one with Perpetuem and one with plain water. For hot days I make two ice trays of Perpetuem to put in the bladder to prevent dilution of the product. Been very happy with this product. Hammer makes a product called Recoverite , which aids in recovery, but to be honest the Perpetuem does a great job at post recovery as well. The next day feels so good I want to do another long distance hike. This is next level stuff, nutrition the smart way, feeds the body what it needs, and the results are awesome, long sustained energy, no sugar crash, and great recovery. Makes my old ways seem primitive! Also I like the taste, I use Vanilla Orange, very mild taste, not sugary at all. Can actually quench your thirst instead of making you more thirsty. I also use a bladder with plain water, because when it is hot out you need plain water to quench your thirst. Sort of like having milk with chocolate chip cookies, nothing else seems to taste as good as milk with cookies!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perpetuem for every ride over a hour and half been using perpetuem for several years. great for longer rides. at 68 i find that this product gives me that little edge to be able to keep up with the younger cyclists on those longer rides.
Date published: 2014-03-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product! I wish I had found this product sooner. It has made my long rides more enjoyable and my recovery much less. An easy way to consume calories and not upset your GI system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from essential summer companion I use is June thru mid October when its hit here in Yuma Az. I'm outside 8 hours, walking approximately 11 miles. Perprtutuem works well under those conditions.
Date published: 2014-12-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works exactly as advertised! I've used Perpeteum now for (4) 3+ hour rides and I'm convinced. I now finish these rides far fresher than before using Hammer Nutrition, and able to transition to my brick run far easier. I'm training for my first Ironman distance tri in the Spring and am confident that I'll be able to perform well, thanks in large part to the steady energy that Perpeteum provides. Huge thanks to Hammer and also Patrick at sales who makes sure my military discount gets applied each time I order!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Trusted! Ive used this product for years now. I can always feel a difference in my muscles on long days. The taste does leave a lot to be desired though!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I'm still deciding on whether I like it or not. It seems to work for me on the bike but not on the run. I'll have to get back to you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perpetuem works it just doesn't taste that great. I use this product on long rides and add via coffee to it to help with the taste. It's better as a paste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultra Ride Did Ride Across Iowa in a Day this year and Perpetual was with me the whole way. Love your products.
Date published: 2014-12-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this product! I started using Perpetuem a few weeks ago for long bike/run training.sessions. I used it and Heed as my sole nutrition for Ironman Calgary 70.3 recently, and was very pleased with how easy it was to use and digest while working hard. I did a three hour bottle for the bike and carried a flask for the run. I just did a Sprint yesterday and used Perpetuem and Heed mixed for breakfast. No stomach problems at all. I love the Orange -Vanilla flavor especially.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best endurace fuel in the market I have try other endurance fuels on the shelves, I felt they work ok, but once I learned how to use Perpetum, for my weight and hours of riding I discovered I was no more fading, nor bunking, a major change, One major change was to my disappointing was (who doesn't love to eat or drink after a hard ride?), I am not ar ravenous to return calories to my body because I was well refuel during my hard rides, I rode just very recently a 100 mile ride and I verily touch the offered fuels from the venue, I knew I will mess up mixing single vs. complex sugars products, and by no means I touched the simple sugar energy drinks at all. I recommend any body out there to give perpetum a try , start with short work outs so you get a feel then use it on a long ride and you will fell the big difference. I definitely am a believer and for sure you will.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from At Last Chocolate Perpetuem I was very happy when I saw the e-mail saying Hammer now had Chocolate Perpetuem. I immediately ordered some. I was racing 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo solo SS and wanted it for the race. I have tried other flavors but they are all too sweet for me for long races. I wasn't disappointed. It wasn't too sweet and had a nice mellow chocolate flavor. I had a great race, riding 10 laps and earning 4th place. I highly recommend it.
Date published: 2016-02-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy on the Stomach and Quickly Absorbed Whenever there's a hard, hot race, it's sometimes difficult to stay properly fueled solely with gels and bars. Perpetuem has never let me down in the heat or cold, and ensures that I get enough quick and sustaining energy into my legs throughout a hard day. It's also one of the only products that includes protein, which I think is crucial. It tastes mild and flavorful and doesn't leave your mouth feeling overly sweet.
Date published: 2016-05-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hammer products I ran my first ultra a 43 mile trail race that was tough & technical. I used Perpetuem, gel & endurolytes in a paste form and also used the Race Caps Supreme before the race and anti-fatigue caps and endurance aminos during the race. I felt awesome the whole race, no stomach issues and my recovery was remarkable. Hardly any soreness after. I love love love Hammer products. Thanks for making such great products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff My biggest hangup with perpetuem has been getting tired of the taste on long and multi-day rides. One of the client advisors suggested I use plain perpetuem and flavor it with hammer gel to get the variety and intensity I wanted. I mix the equivalent of a 2 hour serving in a hammer flask, and alternate between hammer gel and perpetuem for my fueling program. I'm finishing my long training rides much stronger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect This was recommended to my by the owner of our Crossfit Box as a long cycle ride solution to starvation! I followed the "thicker mix" option and after a 35 mile ride test, I used it to get from London to Paris in 3 days. I am told it's the protein component that replaces the necessary whatever.... All I know is it worked perfectly. I also used Fizz elecrolytes in my water and the Recovery after. H

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most important item on my longer rides. I started using perpetuem about 5 years ago. It is the most important fuel source on my longer (3+ hours) rides. I especially like to make a concentrated 4/5 bottle frozen the night before and then top it off the morning of my ride with a liquid serving . The frozen portion thaws while I'm sipping the liquid serving. For me, it is very easy on the stomach. I like the caffe latte flavor best.
Date published: 2016-01-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally. Chocolate! I requested this stuff several years ago, and finally someone at Hammer figured out it would actually sell. If I could do this stuff by IV, I would. They nailed the flavor. Very cocoa-ish, but not too sweet. It tastes very good and could easily be drank as a regular beverage, not just a performance beverage. i'll be hard-pressed to use other flavors after this one!
Date published: 2016-05-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product paired with extreme endurolites has prevented me from cramping on every ride since I began using this product. I flush lactic acids very poorly and have always had an issue with severe leg cramps, despite how I prepare train and eat in advance of any long ride. This product is my silver bullet to prevent leg cramps and curtail fatigue.
Date published: 2015-07-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best I've relied on Perpetuem for 50Ks and a 50-miler, and it's fantastic. I don't run ultras without it. I started using Hammer products after accidentally drinking Heed during an ultra a few years ago. I was amazed at how much better I felt. Perpetuem provides sustained energy for the more extreme distances. Overall, a great product!
Date published: 2016-07-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from No bloat, no cramps, not too sweet I've used Perpetuem exclusively for the last three seasons. Tried all the competitors. Perpetuem is not too sweet and causes no GI distress - ever. My take: two scoops in a bottle with a squirt of unflavored gel - sip every 15 minutes. Powered me through 3 full IM races and hundreds of hours of training. Simply the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultra (cramp) fuel Ran the Vermont 50 mile trail race last week in 28c heat with 3000m of elevation and a sinus infection. I only mention the three as severely cramped at mile 24. With a marathon to go, took some Endurolytes, sipped on Perpetuem throughout the remainder of the race and successfully finished. Tremendous endurance product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ironman debut = Success with Perpetuem!! My husband is a member of the TripleThreatTriathlon.com team and encouraged me to switch to Hammer products in ramping up for Ironman Boulder (my first). I had a blast all day and feel that I nailed my nutrition. I had steady energy all day thanks to Perpetuem on the bike and finished with a smile on my face. THANKS!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great support while working out I buy the large container because my husband mountain bikes and I run half marathons. He takes while climbing and me on my training runs as well as race days. I like to use it as well when at gym on weight lifting days. It's not caffeine driven, but gives you a good support so you can focus on what you're doing.
