New cutting edge hydro+caffine formula added to the SIS GO range.
Science in Sport who are the nutritional supplier of the newly formed Belkin Pro Cycling , have added two new caffeine endurance nutrition products into their SiS GO range.
A new SiS GO Hydro + Caffeine product has been designed to hydrate athletes during intense exercise without added calories. Available in a new Cola flavour, its 75mg of caffeine content will help athletes remain focused when it matters most.
The popular SiS GO + Caffeine Gel gets a new Cola flavour and an increased 75mg caffeine content. The renowned gels deliver energy fast and the new flavour will sit alongside the existing Berry option. The new caffeinated products provide even more options for athletes to get the most out of their endurance sport. Caffeine has also been repeatedly shown by sport scientists to improve performance ,muscle metabolism, reaction times and lowering our perception of effort for a given workload. The new, improved, SiS GO + Caffeine Gel builds on the established science of the SiS GO Isotonic Gels, the world’s first Isotonic energy gel. The gel not only delivers a rapid supply of easily digestible carbohydrates (22 grams per gel) for energy, but also provides 75mg of caffeine per gel.
SiS state that GO Hydro + Caffeine represents a cutting edge and scientifically based formulation that is designed to ensure the athlete is more effectively hydrated to produce his/her best performance.
Luke Heeney, New Product Director at Science in Sport said: “At SiS, we’re committed to constantly innovating new products and formulations to stay at the forefront of endurance nutrition. The SiS GO Range is one of the well-known in sports nutrition, and we’re always looking for ways to have the best offering for amateur and professional athletes.” He continued: “With these new innovations, athletes will be able to benefit from an even wider range of endurance nutrition products to help reach their goals, combined with our nutritional expertise and advice available to customers.”
As an effervescent tablet that readily dissolves in plain water, it represents a highly practical approach (simply drop one tablet in your 500 ml water bottle) to ensure that all of users electrolyte and fluid requirements are met in its most simple format.
SiS GO Hydro + Caffeine will be available in 10 and 20-packs and priced at £3.99 and £6.99 accordingly.
SiS GO + Caffeine Gels are priced at £1.79 each

EPS V2 Power Unit: The most advanced electronic drivetrain available; now even more 'cutting-edge'.
The Campy Tech Lab has taken the most advanced electronic drivetrain available and made it even more cutting-edge. According to Tech lab the new revolutionary design of the EPS V2 Power Unit offers several advantages.
The new cylindrical format allows the battery to be mounted in a variety of positions, depending on the frame manufacturer
• Internally: Seat Tube
• Internally: Down Tube
• Internally: Top Tube
• Externally: Non-drive Side Chainstay
all of which confer an aerodynamic advantage.
The rechargeable lithium ion battery is made with a 3-cell (12-volt) construction; Tech lab claim that the battery duration will generally be around 1500km on average. Taking into account that the EPS Power Unit has been lab tested and guaranteed to last for over 500 recharges, while maintaining strength and charge life.
However, Campagnolo engineers went one step further to guarantee that this component maintains its performance functionality despite the roughest conditions by designing the internal construction of the battery with special material that absorbs vibrations as well as a tested and certified waterproof casing around the motherboard.
The casing that encompasses the internal componentry is sealed with an ultrasonic welding process that further guarantees the integrity of the waterproof enclosure and thus ensures increased security even during the roughest riding conditions.
With the new EPS V2 Power Unit weighing in at 132 grams it represents a significant weight savings over the previous version .
By redesigning the EPS Power Unit the engineers of the Campy Tech Lab were able to reduce the overall weight of the groupset, improve the durability of the Power Unit, reduce its aerodynamic imprint, improve the aesthetics of the bike and remove vital componentry from external threats such as rain, dust and impact.
One apparently simple component that has the power to control the entire drivetrain is now more reliable, more aerodynamic, better protected, lighter in construction and moreelegant in design and placement.
