Skratch is my go-to electrolyte replacement mix. It is naturally flavored and easily digested, so I get the benefit of hydration and electrolyte replacement without stomach upset and without a lot of burping. Solid product for cycling, swimming, and triathlon. The 20- or 60-serving pouches work great for filling water bottles at home; I take the individual packets with me while traveling.
Iï¿½ve tried other powders and Skratch has been the best tasting. Itï¿½s the closest in taste to what the flavors are and has no bitter after taste. My stomach also has no problem with it on centuries. For reference Iï¿½ve tried GU and liquid IV. I donï¿½t really have a preferred flavor, trying out each one has been one way of treating myself.
Skratch is the best product I have found for staying hydrated without the problems that occur when you drink overly sugary or salty replacement fluids. There is just enough flavor to do what you are supposed to do drink BEFORE you get thirsty. I usually consume this during hot summer rides then go back to water and green tea when it gets cooler. The bars are very much like a KIND bar but I rarely eat unless a ride is longer than three hours.
I have been using Scratch Lab products for quit a number of years at this time. I keep going back and infact just reordered more of the Lemons and Limes. It doesn't seem to bloat me and it does certainly help with hydration both in high heat situations and for long distance rides. Highly recommended.
My go to hydration mix for rides when the tempo and outside temperature are increasing. If I'm going out for several hours I'll usually mix one bottle of hydration mix and one bottle of superfuel (only 3 scoops) for energy.
Love Skratch Labs products. They taste great, keep me hydrated, and give me energy for long rides. I use them all season long for my cycling, and all winter for cross-country skiing. My favorite flavors are Lemons and Limes, and Passion Fruit. The Chocolate Recovery Drink Mix is also excellent. Good stuff.
Awesome. Tried Hammer, good. Tried G-aide, bad. Tried Nuun, average. Then a friend put me on Skratch Hydration mix. What difference. More effective and better taste.. I run about 25% less than the recommended dose with lemon lime, matcha, and passion fruit (aka grandilla in S. Africa) , my favorite flavors. So good that my wifr uses it for bikram yoga! Get your own Skratch honey!
