Served it's purpose

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I bought the 100 mg caffeine shots for a 24 hour solo race. It did the trick but barring caffeine needs, I would choose GU over the Clif Shots.

you gellin'

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

love these gels

Thick, but I'm still a fan

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The gel is definitely thick but it packs a good amount of sugar and can save you when you're on the verge of bonking. Pretty good product for eating while you're on the move (racing, etc.) Strawberry and Razz are my personal go-to's.

Tasty

    These are a thicker gel in the sports gel market. Definitely thicker than honey stinger, gu, and others. I think Clif offers the best flavors. They are not overwhelming with sugar. My favorite is strawberry.

    Great, but pretty thick. Break=better

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Thick enough that you legit can't really eat it while pedaling hard. But they are great tasting and seem to work pretty well without the GI distress some other carb-loads cause. Got Razz flavor, which is pretty great tasting.

    My favorite gel is Citrus

    Doesn't hurt my stomach while riding (I have a very sensitive stomach), tastes great, small amounts of caffeine, what more could you want?

    Clifbar Clif Shot Energy Gel

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    An all time classic and chocolate flavor is my favorite... The only issue i have is they are a bit thick and higher intensity rides Science in Sports gels are easier to consume.

    Decent but not ideal

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These gels get the job done but they're pretty thick and can be hard to choke down when you're in the middle of a run. I much prefer using the Stinger gels which are way less thick and grainy.

    Quick and easy energy

      I have used this product for many years and it is my favorite energy gel. Taste and texture are OK but then again this is not like eating a great tasting burger on the trail. I typically eat one every hour with water, due to the thick viscosity of the gel.

      If you have to gel, this is a great one

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have to admit that I got a little burned out on gels...they are great for their purpose, but one particular race where I needed about 10 of them let me wanted to use "real food" whenever I can. Having said that, Clif Shots are still my go to product when I do need a gel, and I often throw one or two in my jersey pocket when going on a medium-long ride. The Vanilla, Chocolate, and Espresso are my favorite flavors (in that order).

      grab and go

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      These make for a great no stop option, they're easily digested and don't feel like they sit in your stomach as some trail foods can, especially on a vigorous route on a hot day. They fit easily in your packs waist pocket. Something to consider is disposal, you will not consume all traces of this which is important in bear country. They roll up very small when empty taking nearly no space but if you simply place it back in your waste belt you will had an exotic and quizzical scent to you pack. Consider placing an empty Loksak in an accessible portion of your partners pack. When you're both done place the waste in the loksak.

      Great taste, good ingredients

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I love this brand, I could say they focus in being organic and ecofriendly. The best flavours for me are Chocolate and Double Expresso

      Love the litter leash

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I wrote about this on my blog (http://cmkl.ca/2015/05/18/clif-shot-gels-solve-the-what-to-do-with-the-tab-problem/) but I love the fact that the packaging keeps the tab and the tube together after you open it. Makes it so much easier to open, eat and stow the empty while riding.

      Good GU Alternative

        I've used these off and on in conjunction with GU. The effects are almost identical. I enjoy the flavor of the Mocha better than any other energy gel out there (The exception perhaps the new Salted Caramel). The notches in the packets are a nice addition and they seem to tear open just a little easier than the GU packets do.

        Double Shots!!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        These are some of my favorite gel packs. Taste great and work well.

        Double Shots!!

        Does the trick

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        You could get a gel flask and make your own gels, experiment with maple syrup etc. Or you could get these, prepacked=preportioned=easy I usually have 2 gels in my pocket for any ride, more on longer rides. I prefer gels for races just because they are the easiest for me to eat 1 handed. Usually the last thing eaten on long training rides as the banana's go first then any waffles or other real food. But when you hit the wall and need quick energy now these are #1.

        buzz buzz

        energy gels really have their purpose when it comes to racing and training - they are easy to carry and provide a hit of energy when you need it the most. the double espresso turbo is awesome for those who aren't caffeine sensitive and are doing a 1-3hr of training or racing. i take this anywhere from 40 to 1:20 into my workouts / races and really benefit from the effects and you don't have to take it all at once, i usually take it in two doses because it is thick. i don't think i could live off these alone but they serve their purpose well.

        Best flavour

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I'd really recommend it if you need a "snack" while you ride. I don't know if it works but I eat it for placebo and to change the taste in my mouth. I have try vanilla, chocolate, strawberry and double expresso. I like most double expresso and chocolate

        Perfect for my needs!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        These little packets are perfect for my needs - long distance running, hiking, backpacking and peak bagging! I won't step out of the house without them when I know I go for a long run, hike or on multiple day backpacking trips.

        when the goin gets tough

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        i started using Clif Shot Energy Gel to step up my biking and running performance. i found that this stuff works really well, i especially like the extra caffeine boost in the double shot.I also find that its best to take it before you start running out of gas. once you feel the bonk coming on it is probably too late to come back from it. i eat one of these every 30-45 min during long rides and runs.



        its pretty thick so make sure you take it with water
