Customer reviews for Zipvit ZV7 Energy Gel

Zipvit ZV7 Energy Gel

The first thing you notice about the ZV7 gel is that it packs 51g of carbohydrate energy- typically double that of the competition! By using a special combination of carbohydrates ZIPVIT SPORT gels deliver a powerful shot of high energy carbs which fuel performance for at least half an hour. ZIPVIT SPORT also gets the details right too, including the things you want such as electrolytes for hydration, without the things you don't - like artificial colours and flavours.

Best Gel on the market (Dairy-Free)

PostedNovember 5, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
Cons: Expensive
Giving a huge amount of carbs in one gel (more than any others) this gel either keeps you going or gets you out of trouble when needed.
I tend to split into three gulps over the course off about an hour. 2no max for a 3hr tempo training ride with an isotonic drink. Perfect.

Nice but thick!

PostedOctober 17, 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
Cons: very thick!, large unit size
These gels are very tasty and effective. However, they are quite large and VERY THICK (viscous)! I took one with me on a run recently and found that it was not easy to swallow a mouthful of it while attempting to breathe through my mouth. I had to store each mouthful in my cheeks like a hamster and swallow it in 3 to 4 goes.
I expect this will not be much of a problem when cycling but it is worth taking this into account if you are a multisport athelete and intend to use these while running.

Great gels

PostedSeptember 10, 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Lightweight
These gels are great. They're larger and cheaper than most, and have a smooth blackcurrant flavour with no colouring. It folds in half nicely, which makes it more compact. Sure for cycling, it isn't a big issue, but for running, less space means you can carry twice as many.. More energy and sodium means better value too.
