Description

Mountain Fuel Trial Pack
There is enough product to fuel at least two events and you may want to buy additional sachets depending on the duration, your preferences and fueling strategies. As an example a sachet of Xtreme Energy can fuel you for up to one and a half hours activity depending on intensity.

Mountain Fuel can be used as a Sports Nutrition system for any type of physical activity and can if needed fuel you for 24 hour+ events or simply taken individually to suite your energy or recovery needs. Follow this link for Fuelling for Endurance.

Typically in preparation of an event if you wanted to utilise the whole system you would;

1. Mix up a Night Fuel the night before your event with hot milk or water, drinking/sipping (in plenty of time before bed and last loo stop as we would also suggest, as you should have been throughout the last few weeks getting into the habit of sipping water throughout the day / early evening to ensure you are always fully hydrated. Just because you’re asleep does not mean you can’t prepare for your next training session or event, Night Fuel helps you get up raring to go, feeding your body at it’s optimum time of recovery.

2. Morning Fuel  (also available in Gluten Free, add a note when ordering if this is your preference) is mixed into a porridge type consistency  or a shake and can be utilised as a pre-event meal as it is light on the stomach and quickly absorbed, it doesn’t have to be just for breakfast 🙂 you can add seeds, fresh/dried fruit etc and even a small handful of oats if that takes your fancy. However bear in mind you want to start your event primed and ready to go and not with your stomach still working overtime breaking down your big breakfast / meal.

*We are aware of a print error on the ingredients list on our Gluten Free Morning Fuel – the ingredients sat Oat Powder (Gluten),  this is a typo, it should say Gluten Free.

Looking to make the most out of your Mountain Fuel system try our ‘On the Go Fuel‘ which is our version of a nutritious gel that is refreshing, full of sustained energy and easy on the stomach. Also you can make ‘mini power pancakes‘ which are fantastic pre and during event snacks to keep you fueled up. To top this off you can also make Morning Fuel Banana Flapjacks which are ideal for snacking on when you are looking for that slower release of energy or post race snack.

3. If possible start sipping, swilling and swallowing your Xtreme Energy drink anything up to four hours before your activity / event. Essentially the slower you drip your fuel into your system the more time the body has to absorb it and maximise performance. Some of our users, if they have had a hard week or are particularly keen on really pushing themselves will also sip, swill and swallow an Xtreme Energy the day before an event too, ensuring their system is alert, primed and ready. Xtreme Energy Fuel gives you a sustained energy release, is easy on the stomach, tastes great and is ideal for hard and fast anaerobic, cardio workouts or equally endurance events. You put the effort in and we’ll power you along.

4. Prepare your Recovery drink and put it in a cool bag if you are using fresh milk as ideally you want to start sipping it within 20 minutes of finishing your event. However DO NOT drink it too quickly, however nice it may taste as it is the same principle as the Energy drink slowly in the system and the body will have more time to absorb it. Ultimate Recovery Fuel is a drink you want to exercise for! It tastes phenomenal and does what it says, there is no better Recovery product on the market.

Mountain Fuel Taster Pack 500ml Bottle and Shaker
“I intended to try Mountain Fuel for the first time in the recent English Championship Fellrace around Duddon Valley. The plan was to try a sachet or two of the Extreme Energy Fuel in addition to my regular bars of choice. On the day I somehow managed to forget to pack my usual stuff into my bumbag and was therefore reliant solely on the untested Mountain Fuel. Everything went well. Mountain Fuel mixed with pure Cumbrian fell water seemed to agree with my system and I felt strong all day, never hungry or lacking in power. I finished higher up the results than any previous Championship race I have completed and will certainly be using Mountain Fuel again for my next long fell event.” Steve Angus – (Winner of Lakeland 50 Ultra and Multiple Marathons)

“I just kept going and going, leaving everyone behind as the ride went on.  It was like a Duracell advert!” Ian Turnbull, cyclist.

“The most important part of my preparation for this race (Ultra Tour of Mont Blanc) was getting my head around the fact that I could get most of my race energy from the Xtreme Energy Fuel. Prior to this, I felt that I needed to throw in gels to get me round my ultra races. I had a particularly bad experience earlier in the year and can trace the problems back to too much gel use. This time I was confident in my nutrition and happy that the Mountain Fuel products would get me round in good shape.”  Dave Troman, Ultra Runner reflecting on his 2014 UTMB (Ultra Tour of Mont Blanc – 166 km +9,600 m of ascent).

“This is the first recovery product I’ve tried that not only tastes amazing but actually works whatever intensity of activity I have done. No more sore legs the next day which is important as when I’m not training I’m on call as a fireman so need to be ready for action!” Paul Maxwell, Fell runner and Triathlete.

Please allow up to 4 working days (excluding weekends) for your order. However depending on the time of day your order is made you will often receive it within 3 working days.

    Best powder out thereHaving used Mountain Fuel Xtreme Energy Fuel for a number of marathons, ultra-marathons and multi stage events (not to mention in training) I was confident in my choice in taking Mountain Fuel Xtreme Energy Fuel to the 32nd edition of the Marathon Des Sables (2017). I have always found Mountain Fuel Xtreme Energy Fuel to be a great combination of energy source and electrolytes. I took both the blackcurrant and tropical flavours using one each per day. They both tasted great and I had no issues in the heat. Mountain Fuel Xtreme Energy Fuel was easy to mix and very light on the stomach. The MDS is a 150 mile, 6 stage event in the Sahara Desert where competitors are self-sufficient having to carry all their kit and food throughout the race. This means maintaining sufficient hydration and nutrition whilst keeping pack weight to a minimum is of paramount importance. I will happily continue to use Mountain Fuel Xtreme Energy Fuel as my preferred race fuel.

    Top quality running nutritionI have also struggled for nutrition on longer fell and trail races until I tried Mountain Fuel energy drink. I now use the full range of night, morning, energy and recovery drinks.
    They sit well on the stomach and provide a long lasting energy boost during a race and the recovery drink does speed up recovery times.
    Keep up the good work.

    Lived up to the hype!I completed my first ultra marathon last month and used all of the products in this bundle. I cannot recommend them highly enough. The night fuel may have had nothing to do with it but I slept well the night before and I never sleep well the night before an event!
    The morning fuel is very sweet but satisfying and enjoyable and filled me up. This coming from someone who enjoys eating a huge breakfast normally.
    I then basically survived the whole day on the energy drinks. They taste really good and obviously work. I had many issues throughout the race but fatigue and lack of energy were not among them.
    I have a few more endurance events coming up and I will definitely be using these products again. I had heard great things but I am genuinely blown away by how great they actually are.

    Great first impressionsI stumbled across the Mountain Fuel website by chance although it did ring a bell with me as it turns out a mate who competes at an elite level in extreme triathlon events, already uses and loves their products.

    What struck me as a difference to other sports nutrition products was their love of the outdoors, passion for the sports and their belief in nutritionally balanced supplements with no dirty sugar spikes (and crashes!). Competing as a triathlete I've always struggled with getting nutrition right and to this day I'll admit that I've yet to finish a race (or big training session) thinking to myself that I've nailed it.

    Firstly top customer service. After some timely and helpful emails back and forth with the team I quickly received a sample pack on the other side of the world which luckily coincided with a planned couple of days of hot, hilly riding on the coastal and desert roads of Oman. Not an ideal time to test brand new products out but what the hell I thought I'd go all in and try their 4 level system anyway.

    Starting the night before I took the night fuel, having just finished a good block of training I was feeling it in my body so thought I'd try maximize feeling as fresh as I could the next day. The morning fuel tasted similar to a sweet oat type shake I'd make anyway and although content wise it contained less carbs than I'd normally take in on a breakfast I was still in mind to go all in with their products and see what happened. Prior to heading out to ride I sipped on one sachet of the extreme energy fuel in 750ml of water during the hour before.

    Over the course of the 2 days I rode over 200 miles in temperatures above 85 degrees including alot of climbing. Normally I'd try get 80-90 grams of carbs in me every hour through a mixture of drinks and gels however on this occasion I went purely on feel and listening to my body. The result being I used a fraction of what I would of if i'd 'planned' my nutrition for those 2 days however I never felt a dip in energy or the need to reach in my back pocket and suck on any of the gels that'd i'd brought with me anyway incase my little experiment all went wrong! Ultimate recovery fuel when i finished and I was good to go again the next day.

    So overall what are my thoughts? I went into these rides using the MF products on the back on nothing but 60-90 min Wattbike sessions several times a week over the last few months due to work commitments. The legs were feeling pretty strong and I've also trained on nothing but water over the last 2 months in an effort to try tap into the bodies fat supply for fuel. I'm sure this contributed to how strong I felt on those days however I can categorically say that the mountain fuel products did aswell. Feeling strong, I felt steady, energy levels weren't up and down and I never had to reach for that gel to top up, that's never happened before.

    So I'll be trying the products again for sure. I'll be racing several on the more extreme triathlons in 2017 in the UK and if I'm to have the success that I want at them, getting my nutrition nailed and finding something that works for me and my needs, is going to be the difference between achieving what i want to and being successful or not. I have a good feeling about MF products and I see no reason why they might not be my nutrtion of choice for the 2017 season. Cheers guys.

    ps - I'm not one for writing product reviews as I generally find nothing really stands out enough to warrant them, I generally can't be assed and it doesn't really make a difference to me if it means I save a few quid by writing some words. If I like something , I'll buy it anyway so the fact that I've taken the time to leave a review speaks volumes, probably more than the words above themselves ;-) #justdostuff
