The Maxifuel Viper Active performance energy drink is a 35g sachet of powder to be mixed with 500ml of water, for use both before and during exercise.
What’s in a sachet?
Each sachet contains 30.9g of carbs of which 17.7g are sugars and 2.49g of protein, providing 135kcal. There’s also 0.19g of sodium to counter that lost in sweat.
Flavour and mixing
The sachets I used were rasberry flavour. When you pour the powder out into a glass, it’s uber-bright pink which make it look really potent! It mixes easily with 500ml of water, and fortunately the flavour is far less extreme. In fact the flavour is very mild, making it very easy to sup.
As well as in training, I tried using a sachet during a mountain bike gravity enduro in addition to my usual gels, because the previous race had left me a bit tired towards the end. The Viper Active drink certainly did the trick leaving me able to power down the the final stage more strongly than the final stage of previous races. Importantly it didn’t repeat on me during the intense burst racing. Top stuff.
