Clif Hydration Drink Stick
The Clif Hydration Drink Mix is based on a 4% carbohydrate solution and is designed to assist in the absorption of fluid. Performance declines with as little as 1-2% dehydration, so a rider's number one priority should be staying hydrated. The Clif Hydration Sticks counteract both electrolyte and fluid loss.
Great light taste with no weird aftertaste. Great when refilling at a park where the water may be warm or taste funny. Actually quenches my thirst unlike many other drinks. Works well. On rides over an hour I take one or two along and I've noticed a difference in my hydration level and recovery when I use it but of course that's nothing unique to this specific electrolyte drink. I guess bottom line is it works it tastes good it packs light and it doesn't have a lot of junky ingredients.
