The TORQ Energy Gel: Designed for easy ingestion, digestion, and optimal fuel delivery (carbohydrates + electrolytes) for endurance athletes.
Big taste, Easy to Consume: Simply put, we think these are the best tasting energy gels on the market. The texture of the TORQ gel is light and syrupy. It doesn’t stick to your mouth and you don’t need water to wash it down. TORQ has deliberately designed this gel to be easy to consume when you are on the move! Our packaging is also optimal for carrying the gel in your kit back pocket, under a cycling/tri bib, or in a fueling belt. No sharp corners, and with a handy litter tab so to keep your favorite run or ride trail clean for another day.
This product has been carefully formulated to deliver TORQ’s unique blend of multiple-transportable carbohydrates and electrolytes to the working muscles extremely quickly and efficiently using research-proven 2:1 Maltodextrin:Fructose technology and all 5 key electrolytes. It also goes without saying that our flavor profiles are innovative to say the least and our reputation precedes us in this respect. TORQ Gel forms part of the TORQ Fueling System, so can be used alongside TORQ’s energy drinks, bars and chews to fuel optimal performances. Please take the time to read about the TORQ Fueling System and ensure that you get the most out of this product.
Each TORQ gel provides 30 grams of multiple-transportable carbohydrates (1 TORQ Unit), which is a significantly greater concentration than many brands on the market today featured in larger heavier packages. The TORQ Fueling System suggests consuming 2-3 TORQ Units per hour by taking on board our energy drink (TORQ Energy) along with the other more concentrated TORQ Units displayed in the table below, of which the TORQ Gel is one. The higher your perspiration rates, the more TORQ Energy you will need to consume relative to our concentrated fueling units and when perspiration rates are lower, more concentrated TORQ Units should be consumed and less energy drink. The choice of which concentrated TORQ Units to consume is entirely yours. TORQ Gel, TORQ Bar and TORQ Chew are all optimized with multiple-transportable carbohydrates, so the only difference between them is the texture; Smooth, Soft or Chewy. Again, this interaction between TORQ’s fueling products is explained fully HERE and we also discuss this in more detail later on this page.
PRODUCT USAGE: The TORQ Fueling System area of this website clearly explains how TORQ Gel works alongside TORQ’s other fueling products (TORQ Energy, TORQ Bar and TORQ Chew). TORQ Gel represents the fastest possible method of consuming 30 grams of carbohydrate (1 TORQ Unit), so is suitable for use at all exercise intensities and is especially favored during high intensity racing or training when heavy breathing makes consuming a TORQ Bar or TORQ Chew more difficult. For these reasons, we advise combining TORQ Energy Drink with TORQ Energy Gels during higher intensity racing and factor in TORQ Bars and TORQ Chews over the longer distances/lower intensities for variety. Of course, the beauty of the TORQ Fueling System is that the choice is yours and we accept that everyone has different preferences.
