"High 5 gels are the cheapest I can find. I was getting sore guts from other gels. I'm pretty sure I tried every gel so I wouldn't get sore guts. Only a few worked but none were as cheap and I couldn't tell the difference in performance"
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, Great Value

"Good chain for a good price, sometimes it's hard to justify dura-ace for things like this when the weights are so slight compared to Ultegra, especially when it's going in the bin after about 4,000km"
Pros: Great Value, High Quality

What is the Sizing like?

Hi, I'm enquiring about the sizing, I'm usually sized from XS-Med depending on the cut/fit.
My chest size always gets the fit right, 92cm/36inch

Thanks for your answer

Could this be mixed with the 4:1 product?

As above, would this mix well with 4:1 (both same flavour) in order to reduce protein intake during shorter, low intensity rides?
Yes, find a formula that works for you. This could be your golden goose

Would you use this instead of the high 5 tablets

Yes, it has carbs in it too. 1 x 750 ml bottle will usually be the same energy value as a gel, muesli bar or banana and it has the similar electrolyte dosage as a drink tablet

Does this contain caffeine?

Best answer
No, if products contain caffeine the manufactures are usually pretty pumped about it and write it all over the packaging.
