Easy to mix, quite palatable on the go, seemed to help on long bike ride...
A good drink for keeping you going but I found the gels easier to use and gave me more energy
I compared ingredients/content to other brands - Decathlon's Aptonia Powder is very competitive and offers great value for money. You get all the minerals & vitamins - the right mix with nice lemon flavour, I dose less than recommended (instruction indicates 38g per 500ml of water). It kept me hydrated well during my trainings around Berkshire & Oxfordshire hills (20 to 80 miles long) and also during London-Brighton 2018 ride (54 miles). If applied properly then you will not struggle with tiredness. I would definitely recommend this powder - I bought a 2kg bag now as using frequently and I consider using for other disciplines.
I also bought a tennis racket. When I looked it said £85. However, the racket I loaned was £125. They didn't originally have this on display only the £85 one and I mistakenly thought it was the same racket. I was buying it for a client. Doesn't look good.
I solute this as stated and use in my soft flasks when doing 10km+ runs.
I find it settles well in my stomach (not all do) and seems to absorb quickly.
Will be my energy drink of choice for my first Ultra next year!
Nice tasting energy drink that keeps you hydrated during sports and training.
Used for longer indoor cycling training sessions, with The Sufferfest training centre app, could really feel the difference.
Kept me going and hydrated, flavour good, great value.
I've tried a lot of carb gels and isotonic drinks - they rarely bear any resemblance to the stated flavour but Aptonia stuff is usually pretty good - the raspberry gel is raspberry, the cherry gel is cherry, the red berry isotonic is vaguely fruity and not unpleasant... This stuff tastes like someone was told what a cherry tastes like and what a strawberry tastes like and mixed in some bubblegum flavour for a laugh. It is amongst the most hideous things I've ever tasted in my life. One the plus side it does the refreshment thing quite well - but I won't be buying this flavour again.
Easy to dispense, no mess
Taste is unworldly
Cheaper and easier to mix than more popular brands, saw me through a 100 mile ultra after I could no longer stomach food.
Easy to dispense; Mixes well and quickly
