Description

Believe the hype.

Our comrades over at Competitive Cyclist dedicated nearly 1500 words to Skratch Labs’ Exercise Hydration Mix when it first launched. We’ll be a bit more brief —there’s simply nothing else out there that we like more than Skratch for hydration. It’s easy to get down, it doesn’t cause GI distress, and we feel like we can go a bit harder for a bit longer than we can with plain water or other mixes. Engineered by Allen Lim and tested on some of the world’s best cyclists, Skratch Labs Exercise Hydration Mix promises to regulate your body’s electrolyte levels during exercise so that you stay more functional for a longer time. The bulk of this is accomplished via sodium, which Lim found to be the most important ingredient in fighting cramps, headaches, and power loss.

None of that would mean anything, though, if it weren’t easy on the stomach. Fortunately for us, the use of simple, real-food-type ingredients means that our bodies can digest it easily, and the absence of savoring agents (what you’ll see called "natural flavors” on other mixes) means that you won’t experience a weird, lingering aftertaste, just real fruit flavors that dissipate as you’d expect.

  • High sodium content
  • For exercise specifically, other products for daily hydration
  • Natural ingredients and flavors
  • No savoring agents

Here's what others have to say...

Better then...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This drink mix is one of the best sports drinks out there. It's not overly sugary, and after you drink it you don't need to wash it down with water right after it, which makes it nice for long rides, runs, etc... Get it you won't regret buying this over some other sports drink mix.

great drink mix

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have no complaints. The taste is subtle and the effects are prominent. All in all i recommend this to all of my customers.

best drink mix around

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

if your doing any type of exercise, this is the best mix to have with you to get back all of your electrolytes, and get back to be hydrated. i purchased the raspberry flavor and its so good.

My Favorite..bar none!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have, and continue to use everything under the sun as far as nutritional products go; but Skratch has been my go-to electrolyte and lighter calorie exercise hydration drink mix since it was released.

The flavor is light enough to drink at any temperature, but has enough energy and electrolytes to sustain you for up to 2 hours on the bike without much else in the way of nutrition.

Easy to say, any time I am riding for 2 hours or under, my bike is always outfitted with 2 bottles of Skratch Exercise!

My favorite flavors are the Matcha/Lemon and Raspberry; I always have several bags of each on hand at all times.

so good

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

this mix has such a great taste to it, full of all the stuff you need to replace after a long ride / run.
the best part is it does not stain your water bottle like other mixes.

Skip the sugar and fuel your body!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This stuff is awesome- not really much else to be said. It tastes great and is WAY better for you than the sugary disaster they call Gatorade. Will definitely be keeping some of this in stock at my home at all times.

Much better than Gatorade

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I just started using this to replace my other sports drinks and am loving it! I love the taste, it's not as strong as I was expecting but I really like it. I never liked Gatorade, Powerade, or any of the other sports drinks because they had such a strong sugary taste and would always water down my sports powders because of it. This has a subtle taste that's not over powering and I can drink the full serving. I love that you're not consuming as much processed sugar and other chemicals in this product! I feel a lot more hydrated and my recovery after a long run is much better when I drink a full serving to refuel. Highly suggest this product. I ordered the pineapple and like the taste. I'm going to order the raspberry to have another option.

sufficient hydration balance

works great for me compared to multiple products I've tried

Tasty Treat for Recovery

I got this free with an order and love it. It is tasty and does the trick after exerting yourself.

Apples & Cinnamon

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is excellent tasting. Natural flavor and none of that weird fake chemical icky taste. Have had this both hot and cold and really like it both ways. I think it was very helpful for rehydration and recovery from a recent multi-day high altitude alpine ascent. Will continue to use.

I even mixed some into my oatmeal today at home just to see. Might not be the best application but i felt like I had a lot more energy after eating it. Plus the flavor was a great addition. :)

Absolutely the Best Drink Mix I've Tried

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I'm particular when it comes to the taste and performance of my drink. I'm 49 but do more than 5k miles per year cycling and have had some issues with Dehydration (e.g., ending up in the emergency room after a half century due to runners colitis, etc.). But, going along with that, I am needing to watch my calorie intake as I'm getting a bit older than some other people cycling this much that are significantly younger in age. I was using Iron Man Perform for years, but its 200+ calories per bottle. I tried Accelerade Hydro, which is half that but the taste is only okay. This tastes AWESOME. It's not too sweet and works both from a performance perspective and from a calorie counting perspective (only 100 calories for a 20oz bottle). Highly recommend this to anyone who's willing to give it a try. Get the mason jar also as the bags don't seal that well after opening and you need this to stay moisture free as it has real fruit in it.

Different.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Does it's job like all the Skratch Labs products do. I enjoy the flavor...just hard getting used to drinking a warm electrolyte drink on the bike, although the flavor lends itself to it.

Don't understand what all the hype is?

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I purchased this product, after reading about how wonderful is was. I used it multiple times, giving it a chance to prove itself, but don't care for it. Tastes great, mixes good, but makes me feel weird, for some reason? I'll stay with the GU products.

Big Hype...Better Results

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Several of my friends switched over to Skratch labs last season and seemingly had very little muscle fatigue on big days in the mountains. The Gatorade and water mixture just wasn't cutting it for me.

The Skratch Labs products are purpose designed for the task at hand, endurance sports that are high output hour after hour. When you are sweating it out it can be a real challenge to replenish electrolytes and some options are so harsh they leave your stomach feeling queezy.

I didn't notice the results at first. The mixture tasted great (Pineapple) and at the end of the day I had no cramping, no headache, no queezy stomach...The reason I hadn't noticed the results is that it worked seamlessly with my day and I was able to focus on the task at hand rather than fighting off the typical side effects. Since the Spring of 2014 I've exclusively used this product.

Cycling, Trail Running, or Backcountry skiing. This is my go to beverage to keep me going.

Great stuff

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Love this product, have tried and liked all of the flavors, my current favorite is a blend of Lemon-Lime with Raspberry!
Taste like Raspberry lemonade

Can't Beat it.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Tried Skratch for the first time this summer, and I'm completely hooked.

Taste is light, all the flavors are amazing and actually a pleasure to drink on or off the bike.

Function is unmatched, with a proven ingredient mix that gives your body exactly what it needs to keep going (along with real food of course), without over doing the sugar, salt or other ingredients.

Tastey!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I was gifted the Apples and Cinnamon flavor and absolutely love it for cold weather days! I wouldn't recommend it for summer days though. Like at all.

Great stuff, not too sweet

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Just enough sweetness to get me through a ride. Love this stuff.

5 5

No more cramps

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm a road rider and a salty sweater and was prone to calf cramps on hot days after about 25 to 30 miles on rides. Started using Skratch Labs Exercise Hydration Mix. The first ride I used it no cramps. Works great

Scratch Labs for the win!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've tried several electrolytes mixes in the past and they are too sweet and sugary. The matcha and lemons is the perfect balance for me and I love the caffeine boost. I wouldn't recommend using this for night rides though I usually have a hard time sleeping with all the caffeine in my system.
