'So what is the new TORQ Fuelling System?
The guidelines are simple. Take 2-3 TORQ units per hour. 1 TORQ unit is 30g of carbohydrate, or 1 TORQ gel, 1 TORQ bar or 500ml of TORQ energy drink. If the weather is hot, it makes sense to consume more 500ml energy drink units, because you’ll be getting fluid and electrolytes with your carbohydrate to facilitate hydration. In cooler weather, overconsumption of TORQ energy will fill you bladder and your exercise will be interrupted by toilet stops! This is where drinking less, but gaining TORQ units through the more concentrated TORQ fuel sources (bars and gels) makes more sense.
So effectively, your carbohydrate intake should always be 60-90 grams per hour, irrespective of the weather conditions and perspiration rates, but the method you chose to fuel yourself will vary. We’re recommending that newcomers and smaller individuals begin with a strategy of 2 TORQ units per hour and experiment with 3 TORQ units per hour as they feel comfortable. Individuals over 65kg in weight and experienced sports people should be able to move onto 3 TORQ units per hour fairly easily and without any cause for concern.
The texture of the TORQ gel is light and syrupy. It doesn’t stick to your mouth and you don’t need water to wash it down. We have deliberately designed this gel to be easy to consume when you are on the move.
