Product Detail & Benefits


The staple of any energy drink, bar, or gel is carbohydrate, and 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 components. Use it before, during, and after exercise.


For over a decade, Hammer Gel has been the benchmark of concentrated carbohydrate energy gel, primarily because of what it doesn't contain. Hammer Gel has no added refined, simple sugars and no artificial colors or sweeteners.

Choose either single-serving pouches or the cost-effective 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, and Perpetuem to create a variety of tasty energy combinations for any length activity, anywhere, anytime.

Product Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't beat the variety The Hammer Gel sample pack is a great option for athletes new to Hammer who have yet to decide on their favorite flavors. For longtime Hammer fans like myself, the sample pack provides welcome variety. Ranging from the newer flavors like Peanut Butter-Chocolate to the tried and true Montana Huckleberry, Hammer simply offers better gel favors and variety than any competitor I've tried. Why stick with only one? Try them all! With the sample pack I get to experience a lot of them and on big days in the mountains, variety is appreciated If you need further convincing, the sample pack is actually a bit cheaper than buying the gels individually.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I never run a race without my Hammer Gels! I use one for 5Ks, 1-2 for 10Ks and 3 for half marathons. The Espresso ones really help get me through miles 10-13 for a half marathon and help get me energized for 5Ks. The hammer gels don't have straight sugar (even organic sugar is bad for us), but they still taste super delicious. My favorites are the peanut butter and the espresso. My husband liked the apple flavor in addition to the Espresso. I can't live without my Hammer gels. A running store just opened in our city and I told the owner he had to start carrying Hammer gels as they are way better than anything else out there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hammer Gel got me through my black belt test! That title says it all, really. I'm female, turning 58 this month, and the only athletic thing I've done in my life is walk my dog. After 4 years of karate, which I began for exercise and fun, time came to train for the black belt test. A black belt friend my age told me about Hammer products. I used Recoverite to build my glycogen during training, and Perpetuem along with coconut water and an electrolyte supplement to get through training and the test. But the essential addition was the Gel. I tried a couple of them on a particularly long training day and was amazed. I used several during the test, and I got through it (in terms of energy!) just fine. (And yes, I passed.:) I tried several flavors during the test. All tasted fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy on your tummy!! I used Hammer in my very first marathon this past weekend. It was so great to be able to have a gel on my schedule instead of when there was a water stop available. The Hammer gels are so easy on the stomach, you can take them without water and still feel great. I never ran out of energy even though my legs were screaming around mile 20!!! So glad I found Hammer before the race!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great results! I have two sons who race quads on a national circuit. Their performance is enhanced by the gel as they race for two solid hours. We use the gel during a 13 second pit stop to "re-boost" the ability to sustain their speed and accuracy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great way to sample all the flavors I ordered the sampler kit to find out which flavors I liked. There were a few I don't care to eat again but I found several that worked for me. The best part is they sent a bunch of free samples of their other products also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gels!! I haven't tried all of the flavors yet, but so far, they are all great!! I like one of the competitions products, but there is a strange flavor in all of them. Your products do not have that weird flavor and I love that!!
