Hammer Gel is primarily used during long rides and races. However, it may be used as a pre-workout meal or for recovery, providing an excellent source of easily digested carbohydrates.
As with all Hammer Nutrition fuels, there are no added simple sugars in Hammer Gel, which allows for a greater volume of calories to be easily digested, providing more fuel for energy production. Convenience is also a primary benefit of Hammer Gel; gels in general are convenient as they provide a concentrated source of calories. The reusable Hammer Flask takes that convenience even further as it will hold five servings, providing up to two or more hours worth of fuel.
