Hammer Gel might look like similar products on the market, but it’s what’s inside that counts! Other energy gels are made with simple sugars, citric acid, and usually artificial flavors and colors. The results are predictable: energy peaks and valleys, and trips to the porta potty.

Hammer Gel’s complex carbohydrates, all-natural ingredients, and pH-balancing formula provides quick yet sustained energy in a convenient, tasty, concentrated form. The addition of branched-chain amino acids helps to prevent muscle tissue breakdown while reducing fatigue. The result is a highly effective, concentrated fuel source that digests easier than any other energy gel. It might look similar to others, but the ingredients—and benefits— are completely distinct. Hammer Gel is real endurance fuel—not sugar!

Note:Hammer Flask holds 5-6 servings. Only Espresso and Tropical flavors contain caffeine, 50 mg for Espresso and 25 mg for Tropical per serving.


Ingredients breakdown:

  • Maltodextrin: A high-glycemic index (GI) complex carbohydrate, ideal for providing fast-acting, long-lasting energy during exercise and for replenishing the body’s glycogen stores after exercise.
  • Energy Smart® (Grape Juice, Rice Dextrin): This all-natural, low-sugar sweetener plays an important role in Hammer Gel’s delicious flavor while contributing minimally to the overall carbohydrate content. Energy Smart® is certified non-GMO, gluten-free, and allergen-free.

  • Citric Acid: Used in minimum amounts to meet FDA requirements for acidity levels. Hammer Gel contains less citric acid than comparable products.
  • Salt: Minimally added for preservation, flavor, and digestive support. It is not a source of electrolytes (see Endurolytes® product line).
  • L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, L-Valine: The branched-chain amino acids (BCAA’s) protect against muscle tissue breakdown, while also helping alleviate fatigue.
  • L-Alanine: This amino acid is used to help meet energy demands, particularly when the body’s carbohydrates stores are running low.
  • Potassium Chloride: Source of potassium and sodium.
  • Cultured Dextrose: An FDA-approved, all-natural preservative.

The best gel

Hammer gel has real flavors. It gives me steady energy rather than the sugar spike followed by a crash that I get from some gels. My favorite is raspberry - real fruit and not too sweet. If you want caffeine, the espresso flavor has a lot, along with serious coffee flavor.

A few months ago, Hammer thinned out their gels, making them easier to use. They increased the size of the bottles to keep the same weight of the contents. Since Hammer changed the consistency, the gels flow much better from the little bottles-even in the cold. I really enjoy using the Hammer gel bottles now. Less waste and lower cost than individual gels. Also, I find the gel bottle easier to use than single gel packs- and I don't get the gel all over my fingers.

I have used Hammer Gel for a long time. It's super simple to use with a Gel Flask and provides instant energy. And, no fussing with a foil packet, getting my fingers sticky, or worrying about disposal. Has saved me from bonking more times than I can count. Highly recommended.

I love Hammer Gel. It has save me (and my wife) from bonking on many rides. I also like the flask system - I find it so much easier to use versus the individual foil packets. And, you don't have to worry about packing the used up sticky packets (or littering with them). Love this product!!

On a three hour ride I fill up 3 small bottles for my jersey pockets and use every 30 minutes. After trying many other brands I hit the jackpot with

Hammer Gel. I highly recommend this product to other cyclists.

I've used bars, other gels, and regular foods. None compares to the nutrition I get from Hammer Gel. I take a single squeeze once an hour and I can ride all day long. In fact it kept me fueled on a 9-hour, 170 mile ride from Boston to Millbrook, NY!

I have no problem with the product itself, just the packaging. I assume it is designed to fill a flask to take on a ride. I tried that, but the product is too thick and does not flow out of the flask. You end up with a flask of liquid that is inaccessible on the ride.

I love these jugs... and especially getting them from Western Bike Works. The price per serving keeps me coming back to order them here all the time. During a race event putting the gel in a flask is by far the fastest way to get some fuel... providing minimal time having a hand off the bar and not having to fuss with tearing open a gel pack.

I use Hammer Gel every time I go out and cycle. I take a swig, and I am good to go for about 10 miles! I make sure I take it every 10 miles. I have done numerous centuries with this product and I swear by it. Before I found Hammer Gel I would run out of steam a lot. This product is far superior to any other gel or bar out there.

Very happy with this gel! I got the espresso with caffeine. It tastes like you're drinking Hershey's chocolate syrup which I love. Gives you an almost immediate burst of energy. Would definitely recommend it.

This product works well. You will not feel a rush of energy, but rather a steady, even level of energy.

In addition, Hammer gel flavors, at least the ones I've tried,orange,tropical and raspberry are not terribly sweet. Lastly, even though this is not important to some, it may be to others, these are vegan products.

I use gels for nutrition on longer rides in place of more solids as I have digesting the solids. The Hammer product provides the calories and electrolytes that I need. Buying in bulk and using the hammer reusable bottle saves a great deal of money and helps protect the environment by eliminating the foil packet trash.

The downsides to the combo 1) the bottle has a protective cap and a VERY tight pop top makoing it difficult to use while in motion and 2) the last few servings are a little more difficult to get out of the reuseable bottle. This is overcome by adding a bit of drink from your water bottle prior to starting out making more of a liquidized gel.
