Nuun is a relatively new electrolyte drink with its biggest USP being its portability. 12 tablets in a tough water resistant plastic tube are enough to make 12 500ml bottles, delivering a balanced hydration solution.
If you’ve been paying attention to the pages of roadcyclinguk.com you’ll no doubt note the similarity with Zym featured recently. The concept for both products is similar, but nuun has been around longer and, so far, has better availability with 100 shops around the UK carrying stock. nuun is also available in three flavours (Lemon and Lime, Citrus Fruit and Tri-Berry) and with 12 tablets per pack as opposed to 10 makes for better value for money. One tube will cost £4.99.
We’ll be testing both this coming weekend on the Dragon Ride to see how they both perform.
