It’s time to start thinking about sportives, training camps and racing, so, with more time on the bike comes the needs to address our energy demands for the longer rides. And right on cue is the latest range of sports supplements from Kinetica.
Kinetica have been offering products for the past 30 years and its latest range, including whey protein, recovery supplements and energy gels, are all made from 100% natural ingredients. The products are manufactured in Ireland from fresh diary whey at one of Europe’s largest cheese facilities.
Kinetica is keen to distance itself from many of the less-than palatable energy products out there, and with its own ‘flavour lab’ it works hard to ensure the products on offer are both tasty and refreshing. Our first brief taster of the banana flavour whey protein, downed moments before publishing this article, confirm that they are indeed tasty.
Some of the highlights of the range, and those most interesting to us cyclists, includes Kinetica’s Energy Gels. Formulated with a tri-carb blend, each gel delivers 20g carbohydrate and when taken 60 minutes into a ride will keep your energy levels topped up.
When you’ve finished your ride, Kinetica 100% Recovery rapidly replenishes depleted glycogen levels. Best taken within 20 minutes of exercise, this protein-based drink uses a sugar and vitamin blend and is available in orange/mango or blackcurrant flavours.
Finally, deigned for developing lean muscle and promoting rapid recovery, Kinetica’s Whey Protein is a great tasting, 100% natural supplement, available in strawberry, chocolate or vanilla.
