Real Stories From Real Customers

e-Gel Customer Reviews

"I typically alternated between GU and Roctane on my long runs and Nuun drink tablets in my water bottle. During long training runs, I started having a few stomach issues that I thought were caused by meals the nights before those long training run. During a 50K, I had issues half way through the race and knew it was the Roctane. Cheese quesadillas saved the day, but I decided it was time for something new. I found the Crank Sports website and liked the easy to use comparison chart. I thought I'd give e-Gel a try.

Unfortunately, I didn't have any testing time before my next race. I had to break the golden rule and try something new on race day. I loaded my belt with e-Gel and crossed my fingers. I ran the 2016 Chevron Houston Marathon and it was a great experience. No stomach issues and no muscle cramping. Water in my bottle and an e-Gel every hour got me through the race. I'm not the fastest runner, but I set a PR of 4:50:42 and did not feel destroyed after crossing the finish line.

I am big fan of Mountain Rush and Cherry Bomb and those flavors will be loaded in my belt from this point forward. "

"I have been in multisport endurance for over 3 years. This is by far the best gel product on the market, and I have been through them all. Cherry Bomb really taste like candy! I have had nothing but positive training and racing experiences with his product. I trained on and used e-Gel for my first half marathon of 2012, and busted a 1:32.44! My personal best of 5 half marathons. The sustained energy is incredible! I absolutely love this product. GET SOME!" (...read more)

"I am 35 years old and completed my third marathon, Top Of Utah. Figuring out how to stay hydrated and prevent muscle cramps during long runs and races has been one of my biggest challenges. In the past my muscles would ache and twitch and cause me a lot of pain after long runs. I tried Gatorade and other carb gels but had a hard time finding something that was easy on stomach, kept me from cramping, and helped me avoid bonking. I came across Crank e-Gel this summer" (...read more)

I got to the station and it was a bunch of guys handing out beer! Determined, I went on. The e-Gel was so easy to digest, I got through it just fine when I hit a water station about a mile later. Somehow that just cranked me and my fastest mile was mile 26. Not only did I finally hit my sub-three hour dream, I hit 2:57!" (...read more)

But the weather was perfect, the training paid off, and with the help of e-Gels taken at miles 2, 7, 13, 18, and 23, I took 10 minutes off of my marathon time and never hit the 'wall' or cramped as I had done in previous events. Some guy laughed at me at the start asking why I had so many gels. I told him I had a plan and I was sticking to it. I'm pretty sure I passed him somewhere around mile 22." (...read more)

Like everyone else doing these types of runs in extreme conditions I experienced GI problems using a verity of products until I tried Cank. It was easy to get down and I could feel an immediate boost with minutes. Soon it became my fuel of choice ( in 50 mile runs I consume as many as 10-15 packets and in 100 milers as many as 20-25). It has never hurt my stomach and I'm usually able to stay on top of my energy level through out an event. Since using Crank E-Gels I have completed two Wasatch 100 mile runs, two Leadville 100 mile runs and the Tahoe Rim Trail 100 run and will be using using Cank in volume at Western States 100 and the Tour Du Mont Blanc in Chamonix, France.

"I was introduced to e-Gel by a fellow marathoner after I ran the Madison marathon in May. During the Madison race, as in others, I had problems with dehydration. I know I lose a lot of salt in a long race, but sports drinks don't agree with my stomach. Only being able to drink water, it was simply impossible to get enough electrolytes with other gels.

This past weekend I ran a 50-mile ultramarathon, the second year I ran the race. Last year, I also had problems with dehydration and muscle cramping. This year, having used e-Gel in training over the summer, I used e-Gel, and ONLY e-Gel, during the race--13 packets of it--with water. Despite the day being about 15 degrees warmer than last year, I managed my hydration well AND cut over an hour off my time by being able to run "harder, faster, longer." I attribute the better hydration to e-Gel. Also, the larger pack size, and greater calorie count, were both assets during a long race."

"I started using e-Gel during my training for the Marine Corps Marathon. I had tried (and gave up on) other gels because my stomach couldnt' handle the heavy consistency, and also because they just didn't seem to add very much edge to my performance.

A running club friend suggested I give e-Gel a try. Running in the typical East Coast summer heat and humidity this summer, I couldn't help but feel the immediate bounce from e-Gel - for some reason it absorbs faster than anything else I've tried. I decided to buy a box and go with the Crank PR guarantee, and I went through the remainder of my training season with e-Gel. During that time I easily PR's a half-marathon and saw training times steadily improving.

My run at the Marine Corps Marathon went very well, and I did PR, so I won't be getting the free box of e-Gel. Oh, well, I guess I'll just have to buy another one when I start training in January for my first trip to Boston!

GET YOURSELF SOME OF THIS STUFF! Thanks, Crank!"

"Average Joe review....I am scuba diving instructor and for my birthday I decided to start some running. As I began to train for running I was introduced to the "other" gel. It did not do much for me nor did it taste very good. I discovered Crank e-Gel on my own and orderd the trial pack to see if it worked. The answer: YES and it tasted better that the other stuff. The energy levels are more sustained and not as "peaked" as some of the others. I am so pleased with the results I get that I am not only using e-gel for my runs (I am only doing half marathons at this time) but also for my scuba diving as well. I love the hydration and energy I get from e-Gel in between my 2nd and 3rd deep dives and my half marathons. e-Gel really is SUPERIOR to all the others. I am just a regular guy, master scuba diver, sky diver, commercial plot, mountain biker and now a half marathoner...I am 60 years young and very e-gelerized!! " (...read more)

I took them 45 minutes in (5 miles) just as i started to feel the cramping, and immediately felt relief.

"I use e-Gel for cycling and it does help extend my level of energy and boost performance when I should be slowing down (bonking) due to depleted electrolytes in my body.

This product, along with good hydration has boosted my ability to perform at higher levels for a longer period of time. The clock doesn't lie and faster times means something is working to help me and e-Gel is that something.
Affordable and effective is a good combination but having this delivered to your door means it's convenient too.

Good stuff, thanks for bringing it to us Crank Sports!"

"I'm 61 years old, skinny and got back into cycling a few years ago. I found that I had very little stamina and thought it was age related. Some of it is. I found using gels gave me more energy and improved performance. My home is on a small hill and when I ended each ride I tried to power up the hill but found that my legs had no energy left. Started using e-Gel a few weeks ago and find that I have longer lasting energy than using other gels like GU. " (...read more)

"I have been running marathons for 12 years now and have never been able to abtain my goal of qualifying for Boston. A friend handed me a packet of e-Gel on a training run since I had run out for the last 8 miles of a 18 mile run. Crank gave me the extra energy to finish my run and feel great. I was hooked on the feeling as well as the taste.

I used e-Gel the next six weeks of my training and during the marathon. Needless to say, Crank's guarantee was a success. I had my best time ever in my twelve years of running marathons and finally qualified for Boston! Who would have ever thought I could get faster as I got older!!

I'm a true believer and will continue to use e-Gel as I train for Boston! Thanks!"

I tell newbies, if you hate the taste of gels...then tri the real gel, Crank. This year I'm gunning for my first Ironman. There is no doubt I'm carrying Crank with me for my 140.6 mile journey. Anything else would be cheating myself of the finish line.

Thanks again Crank!!!"

"After running 7 marathons, for my 8th LA marathon I have finally found a solution to hitting the wall and not running out of fuel. Also it is SO amazing how I can now drink all the water I need along the way and not have to hit the potty at all. The rep at the expo told me I wouldn't have to go to the bathroom at all, after drinking 14 oz of water with the gel every 5 miles and I told him he was absolutely nuts. My usually weak bladder was in disbelief !! He was so right.

What a great product I found at the LA Marathon expo booth. My stomach normally can't tolerate any of the other gels and the snacks I used to eat on the races, would not fuel my body well enough, but e-gel really agrees with me and tastes and goes down WAY better too. Amazing product-THANK YOU!"

The gels helped me complete my first marathon and they taste much better than Power gels or Cliff shots. I compared the nutrition facts on each of the labels and the e-Gel is much better than the others. It is the best gel product out there!!! I am a firm believer in e-Gels and I use them for everyone of my 60 mile cycling rides every Saturday and everyone of my brick workouts.

The taste is pretty good, and they digest easily with water just after gulping down an e-Gel pack.

That being said, I still had questions about nutrition when competing in a full IM. I e-mailed a couple of questions to Crank Sports and instead of sending a generic e-mail back, Mike called me and spent a good 30-45 minutes with me on the phone answering ALL of my questions. It was truly the most helpful information I have had since I began endurance sports years ago.

I haven't cramped on any long runs or rides this year.

I know it is a short sample period. The combination and concentration of electrolytes in the Crank products seems to have solved my problem. I've never written a testimonial before, nor do I take much stock in them. None of this may work for you. It seems to work for me."

We are long distance bicycle riders and now motorcycle riders. Look in our packs and you will find two things, packets of e-Gel and e-Fuel and then a baggy of "USED" products from each outing. We are always giving e-Gel to fellow riders to help when their product has let them down. The overall experience of fellow riders is less bonking and longer ride times.

Now for the non-human story. My little West Highland White Terrier, Brodie, attends our rides with us. On a recent return trip Brodie seemed tired and hot as we live in Arizona. Checked with the vet who indicated some type of electrolyte product was needed. With explanation of ingredients and permission from the vet, I put e-Gel in his water bowl, added water and ice. Much to my delight, Brodie lapped almost 4 ounces up and with in just a few minutes was feeling himself. We are sold on e-Gel even for our 4-legged friend."

On our fourth day of treking we were at 15,000 feet and got caught in a blizzard. The temperature dropped quickly and the wind was howling. My 9 year old son started having problems. He was getting very cold, even with his storm gear on, and wanted to sleep. If we came close to a large rock he would lay his head down and try to sleep. Carrying him was not an option we wanted to use because he would have gotten colder. We tried to get him to eat some chocolate but he would not take in very much. I finally got him to eat an e-Gel and start drinking some e-Fuel. The recovery was amazing! Within 10 minutes he was talking up a storm and forging on. We were at our camp site an hour later and he was running around playing with some of the village children. I am not sure what we would have done without the e-Gel and e-Fuel.

"Excellent products. Terrific customer service!

I came across the e-Fuel at the Surf City Marathon in California in 2013. I have been a avid user since. The taste is great - it's not a sticky sweet product. It mixes faster than any other nutrition product. With e-Fuel, I know exactly what I'm getting during multi-hour events. It's light on the stomach and consistently refreshing. I've tried many products over the years and typically get tired of a product after a while; three years and I'm still lovin' it!

Customer service shipments to Maryland has always been quick and responsive."

I used e-Gel the entire race. I actually got stronger late in the race and at the 49 mile mark passed the 3rd runner in the 50-59 age group and put 3 1/2 minutes on him in the last mile. I was still accelerating when I hit the finish. What a great experience to run my fastest time on the course ever and take home hardware (3rd place men 50-59) in 9:09:07. Next year, with e-Gel, I look to crack the 9:00 hour mark." (...read more)

Anything that I eat during a round at those temperatures gives me a blood sugar crash that makes me lose concentration and, consequently, results in higher scores. Since using e-Gels the problem has disappeared. My recommendation is ... be prepared to drink 12-16 oz of water after eating an e-Gel. This is a GOOD THING. Getting the elements that I need to perform well and having a product that promotes drinking water is the best I've found. I'm 62 years old and play two to three times a week year round.

"Our usual road group is 6-8 riders and I'm the only female. The goal is always to stay with the pack for as many laps as possible before dropping off the back to do my own pace. (Actually, it's the goal of the front 2 guys to see how long it takes them to drop the rest of us, but all in good fun). Anyway, my very first experience was e-Gel was that I was able to hang on for a full lap longer. I know that I can't give e-Gel ALL of the credit (sorry), but there was enough of a difference in the way I felt to make the permanent switch from any other sports gel. Also, your article on hydration was a big help in understanding how this stuff works with what's already in my system.

I used the e-fuel the second half of my ride (as recommended) and I'll be making the switch there as well. It mixes easily with water, so I didn't get any surprise clumps (like, gag)...."

I had moderate success at the race and continued to use the product. I did not use e-gel at all for the first race. I did a lot of reading on products and tried to change my training and race fueling to improve my performance.

Not bad for 3 women around 50 working fulltime trying to make time for rides in-bewteen busy schedules. There were 2000 riders that day who raised over a million dollars for cancer research;great effort everyone. The most important thing for me to mention about the use of the e-products is that I never have stomach problems or cramps anymore, can feel the energy instantly after ingesting either the liquid or the gel and always feel like I can keep going even when I am tired from a long ride. e-Fuel is great to drink while spinning inside during the winter also.
