    Made to get you through the extremes.

    First things first: Skratch Labs didn't make the Hyper Hydration Drink Mix for casual training or everyday drinking. It's designed specifically for endurance athletes who find themselves coated in white crust after a race, hooked up to an IV, or otherwise fresh out of salt after a long period of intense exertion. Each pouch contains as much sodium as a bag of potato chips and less sugar than almost any other drink mix, because that's what you really need.

    It's been proven that sugar isn't particularly important for recovery, so Skratch focuses on sodium. Excessive salt loss is dangerous, as well as performance inhibiting, so it's important to re-up after extended high-intensity exercise. Hyper Hydration doesn't taste particularly salty, though, because it's paired with a little glucose, natural mango flavor, and citrate, which has been shown to ease digestion and speed energy-creating pathways.

    Pour some Sug... wait wrong song, Salt!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Over the years I've noticed that I'm a pretty salty guy when it comes to leaking fluids on the bike. On the long rides especially the 100 milers I've always found that I start leg cramping in the last 20 miles or hour of the effort. Ever since I started using the Hyper Hydration mix the leg cramps are gone! Super excited to find this product. I don't break it out all the time, but it's nice to have when you know you have a long hard day in the saddle coming up!

    A Necessary Evil

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    When I'm really anaerobic and developing the thick film of nastiness in my mouth after hours in the saddle the last thing I want to do is wash it all down with a salty, strong flavor. The flavors of this sports drink mask the insane saltiness well and allow the body to cope with extreme demands.

    I'm a pretty skinny guy and if I consume this on the wrong day/too late in the process it can make it even worse. If I consume it at the right time it is a lifesaver.

    from a retired dirtbag to you

      my days of riding thousand miles are gone. i'm now a domesticated house trained former long distance cyclist and a former dirtbag. i only get to do short bike rides. for 3-4 days at a time. i discovered the hyper hydration to be a very helpful tool. when my wife sees me pack it she knows a type 2 fun is coming my way and laugh at me for dreaming and wanting to be a dirtbag cyclist. call me stupid but there is nothing like feeling your heart about to jump out of your chest and a path of sweat drops on the road behind you that can lead you all the way to where you camped the previous night.
      do not expect it to taste any yummy aromas on your pallet. but man oh man that will take a hideous dehydration headache away.

      Great review, Nadav. Thanks so much!

      It Works

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I used this before climbing 10k feet in 110 degree temperatures last weekend here in Southern California. The stuff provided me with a solid base hydration that allowed me to stay on top of my hydration level during the ride. You don't need this for most rides, but for those extreme efforts in brutal heat, I'm glad I have it around.

      Helped me finish the Zion Traverse alive

        About 35 miles into the traverse, I chugged down one of these hyper mixes and it literally saved my life. I'll take one of these for every run lasting over 4-5hrs.

        Great Job

        Great Job

        Sweet

          This is amazing especially when you know that your have a long run, bike ride your going on and you need that extra sodium. If you do a lot of big runs, rides, hikes etc. in the sun and heat I would highly recommend it.

          Salt, Please

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          After a hot ride, I can see the sweat-salt deposits on my clothing. Kinda gross, but a reminder that (personal differences accounted for) hot environments and hard efforts may require more salts for your consumption. I feel that this stuff makes up for the electrolyte replacement you need for prolonged or austere efforts. It's a drink, so you gotta like it, and your GI tract will need to agree with it, it is a personal diet thing.

          I'm Salty

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          Since this product came out I've been using it religiously before running long hard efforts. I run ultra marathons and am one of those people that's generally covered in a salty white crust at the end of a hot day feeling worked due primarily to the heat. This stuff has been a game changer in how I feel throughout the run. I've been drinking a packet the night before event or first thing in the morning on race day. Very happy with the product. The mango flavor makes the most of the salty taste.

          best heat training drink mix

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          gives you the extra boost of sodium you need while still maintaining a high flavor profile of deliciousness. if you plan to race in a hot climate, consider adding this to your arsenal.. your body will thank you!
