Fuel of champions
... like Eliud Kipchoge, Jan Frodeno and countless Tour de France teams.
Maurten 160 is an innovative energy mix drink suitable for training and racing. Less concentrated version of its Maurten 320 sibling, the difference to other drinks is its hydrogel consistency.
When you pour Drink Mix 160 into water, you’ll have a liquid sports drink containing high concentrations of carbohydrates. Acidity of your stomach then instantly converts the liquid into hydrogel, encapsulating the carbohydrates. The hydrogel then enables a smooth transportation of the sports drink through the stomach to the intestines – a spot where the water, salt and carbohydrates are absorbed.
This way, you can consume more carbohydrates than usual without experiencing gastrointestinal issues.
The trick is to use two bottles of Maurten 160 per hour.
Maurten is the energy supplier of choice of our founder Jan, but also of another Jan, Frodeno, the greatest triathlete of all times. Coincidence? We don't think so! :)
We are obsessed with Maurten's hydrogel technology, both in GELs and Drink MIXes, and we also like the super subtle taste that does not overwhelm your taste buds and is bearable during super long events, such as an Ironman.
The sodium content in Drink MIX 160 also helps with electrolyte replacement in hot weather. Don't forget to follow instructions and use exactly 500ml of water so the hydrogel forms properly. The trick is to use either 1 bottle of Maurten 320 per hour or two bottles of Maurten 160 per hour in hot weather.
Maurten: Keep up with the future of athletics.
"Athletes all around the world count on us to get the most out of their training sessions and races. That's why we always put athletes first."
In 2015, Maurten discovered how to make sports fuels easier to tolerate by encapsulating high concentrations of carbohydrates in hydrogels. The sports fuels, based on only natural ingredients, became popular and one year later some of the world's best runners started using their products. The technology is patent pending. The sports fuel reinventing team comes from Gothenburg, Sweden.
Maurten uses only natural ingredients and does not add artificial flavors, colorants or preservatives. Vegan and vegetarian friendly, folks.
We strongly recommend testing and getting used to all nutrition in training rather than during races, and Maurten is no exception to this rule.
