What is Roctane?

What is Roctane?

ROCTANE IS GU TO A HIGHER POWER.

Roctane products are created for your most extreme efforts or long-duration activities. In order to perform at your highest potential, you need a boosted supply of certain essential nutrients that are both portable and easy to digest.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE? 

The biggest difference between Roctane Energy Gels and normal GU Energy Gels is more branch-chained amino acids (BCAAs) and the addition of the amino acids beta-alanine and taurine.  Roctane Energy Drink Mix also has a boosted supply of BCAAs and includes beta-alanine and taurine. MeanwhileRoctane Electrolyte Capsules are a highly portable way to help you fight dehydration with high levels of sodium, vitamin D, vitamin B6, and ginger root to help prevent nausea.

WHAT DO THE PROS USE?

Rob Krar during his 2015 Western States 100 win

 

Ultrarunner Rob Krar likes to keep things simple. In fact, it’s one of his mantras.  “That’s why I choose Roctane Energy Drink Mix to fuel my pursuits. When you need to be dialled in and every second counts, this mix gets the job done, no fumbling required.  It plays a big role in all my athletic pursuits. Running, biking, skiing and hiking, training and racing, it’s rare to find me without this tool in my shed. GU has done the science, so I don’t have to think about it. Just drink and go, and go, and go…”

Roctane Energy Drink Mix delivers:

  • Branched-Chain Amino Acids that prevent mental fatigue and reduce muscle damage
  • Beta-Alanine to help buffer acidity levels in your muscles to prevent soreness and reduce muscle fatigue
  • Taurine to support your heart contractility and cardio output during long exercise sessions
  • Some flavours contain 35mg of caffeine to help improve focus and decrease perceived exertion

ROCTANE ELECTROLYTE CAPSULES

Bruckner Chase once swam 28 miles across the Monterey Bay

 

Bruckner Chase is an endurance waterman and once swam 28 miles across Monterey Bay.  GU Roctane Electrolyte Capsules are an essential part of his nutrition program during his aquatic adventures. “In or on the water if your arms aren’t moving you aren’t racing, so hydrating and fueling has to be fast and efficient.  Even those who claim to never get seasick learn that race level exertion and even a little bump in the water makes it hard to consume and keep down even your favourite GU flavour.  Ginger has long been recognized as a homeopathic remedy for nausea, and when GU added the ingredient to the convenience of the Roctane Electrolyte Capsule, the end result is the ideal supplement for ocean-based athletes and surf lifesavers.  During and after long ocean training days two to three Roctane Electrolyte Capsules have virtually eliminated the cramping and nausea that would hit me late in training or racing.”

Roctane Electrolyte Capsules deliver:

  • 350mg Sodium to supplement your electrolyte needs during long-duration activities in hot or humid conditions
  • Vitamin D
  • Vitamin B6 and ginger root to help prevent nausea
