Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite gel on the market I have been using clif gels and bloks for a long time but I was in REI the other day and decided to buy a few roctane gels just to give them a try and I can say with certainty that these are way better than clif gels! I took these on a 4 hour run in the mountains last weekend and these kept me going strong. The flavor is not as sweet as clif, which is a huge upside for me because sometimes the sweetness of the gels upset my stomach. The roctane gels have the same mellow flavor of the clif bloks which do the same thing as the gels but taste much better. So from now on, I'm replacing my clif gels with GU roctane and sticking with the clif bloks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gave me that extra little boost Today was the first time I used the Roctane version of GU. I have previously used the normal version. I took the Roctane about 10 minutes before I went on a 10.5 mile run, it kept me feeling fresh, and I felt like I had an extra little sumthin' sumthin' in me towards the end of the run when I am usually exhausted. The only issue is that this product tasted alot worse than the other gel that I have used. But it's not as if we take this stuff for the taste anyways, right? The price is a bit more expensive than the other products but just wait until REI has them on sale to buy them, and you should be ok.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gu Roctane Sports Gel Wow! I have tried every energy product on the market and this is the one for me every time. I especially like blueberry and that is a flavor that is rare on the energy market. I do not know all the scientific aspects, but it works well for me on long triathlons, trainings and when doing some tough backpacks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Energy in your finger tips! A great energy booster. I agree, it does give you a high and then gets you down too..but then most of them do it. The flavors are great. The only con I felt about the "roctane" GU was it sits heavy and may not agree with everyones stomach.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tastes Good and Works Well Used some of the roctanes when on a mountaineering trip this past winter. I took my first one about 45 minute into the approach and another after a few hours. The Blueberry Pomegranate tasted just fine and I didn't taste anything off compare to normal flavors of gels. I've consumed many different gels over the years and these are up there with the taste and consistency. Even in below freezing temps they didn't freeze. Worked for what I needed them for but probably will stay with regular Gu to save $ unless I need the extra boost from these.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a gel! I wish that gel manufacturers would create an easier to open package. Getting these open with gloves on or with sweaty hands ( or even teeth) can be challenging, especially after 20+ miles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Made for longer runs with some extra ingredients. Have tried all flavors;,but the Island Nectar is by far the best. Not good as a snack in your office but when hiking or backpacking it works very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big difference! I had always been a fan of tri-berry regular gu, and of clif shots and clif blocks. I never saw the need to spend 2x as much on this roctane version. On some of my longer runs that take over 3-4 hours I would get hungry and need something beyond just gel, I needed to chew on something so I became a fan of the chews. Well, during one 50 mile trail race, I started to bonk right around mile 35. I had been eating chews up to that point, and clif shots, but they both seemed too sweet and my stomach just did not agree with them. My dad, who was crewing for me, had bought some of the roctane's, and he put one in my pack. I got it out, ate it, and noticed that it seemed to taste good to me even though nothing else seemed palatable at that point. Also, within no more than 5 minutes, I felt markedly better. My stomach settled, my energy returned, and I felt good. I was surprised that it made that much of a difference. I have since learned that it was perhaps the inclusion of the extra sodium along with the BCAA's that most likely did it. Any run longer than 3 hours and it is my gel of choice. I would take it on my two hour runs, but it is just too expensive and the benefits dont seem to be as noticeable until I really crank up the time.
