BOON ALMOND BUTTERS
As much as some of us may try, we can’t always be on the bike. For those times in between when you don’t need bars, gels and other standard ride foods there’s Boon, GU’s solution to off-the-bike nutrition. Boon is for everyone, not just athletes, providing snack staples with nutritious (and delicious) ingredients. Made with organic Californiagrown almonds, each of the four flavors—cinnamon spice, espresso bean, chai spice and sweet ginger—offer tastes we’ve been enjoying, especially spread on toast as a delicious breakfast or afternoon snack. The flavor that we’ve been most taken with is sweet ginger. Give it (or all four!) a try.

FIRST ENDURANCE EFS ELECTROLYTE DRINK MIX
First Endurance’s EFS electrolyte drink mix has long been a popular hydration choice among serious endurance athletes. But, as a company run by endurance athletes always looking for the next edge, First Endurance wasn’t happy to rest on its laurels. So, the sports supplement brand developed a new formula, one that we got to help develop and give feedback on back in the spring. The remixed formula hydrates you quickly and delivers all the electrolytes you need—about twice the amount of other mixes—warding off cramps and letting you perform at a peak level.
