Can Pedal All Day
This is my ABSOLUTE favorite drink mix for cycling. I do 1 bottle of water and 1 bottle of this for a ride. I tend to hydrate pretty well in advance of long rides, so I've gotten through 60 miles on this mix with a little supplement along the way. All in all, I think it is amazing. Once upon a time, I ran out, and so I rode with 1 bottle of water and 1 bottle of something-ade. It was a 60+ mile out and back, flat as Florida. Man did I notice not having my EFS. It has everything MY body seems to need for long pulls in the saddle. I ALWAYS rock the Tropical Punch. I fill bottles up halfway and get it mixed, then into the freezer night before. Morning of the ride, I top up with water from the tap and into the bottle cages. By the time I need it is ready for me and at a great temperature. Safe riding!!!

Wont Ride Without it
My fiance swears by this stuff. He competes in Ironmans and wont race without it. Definitely will be repurchasing for all his future races/training.

This stuff works great, kept me hydrated and full of electrolytes while climbing the Nose in a Day. Tastes great, just don't leave it in the sun. Mixes well just leaves some floaties in the bottom.

...Fuel ! Great for hydration and energy in the saddle. I have used Cytomax and many other hydration products and this is my go-to from here on out. Mixes great and tastes even better. Highly recommend!

Give it a go!
Definitely tastes like Grape. Mixes up easy and doesn't all settle at the bottom. Used it on a few longer rides and haven't cramped up. I'll be using this as my drink for the TrueGritEpic in March. I cut it back a little bit as I don't like a thick tasting drink.

I agree, great stuff that really works!

Excellent during long rides
Mixes very easily, tastes good, and delivers as advertised

The EFS energy and endurance mix is by far my favorite electrolyce/carbohydrate mixed drink! I have been using this drink mix for the past 3-5 years and still use it on all of my long bike rides. Also, I have tried other sprots mix drinks but the EFS is just the best for my body! I highly encourage giving the EFS a try!

Tasty but sometimes chunky
I got this in the lemon-lime flavor and I do enjoy the taste of it. Excellent product with all the necessary electrolytes for rehydrating the body before, during or after any rigorous exercise. Doesn't always mix thoroughly, so it can occasionally be a bit chunky. But overall this is a great product, I will most likely buy the same one again.

new to using, but like so far
Used this for my first half ironman a couple weeks ago. I alternated a bottle of water with a bottle of grape EFS in water during the bike leg and felt great. Definitely plan on using more and getting more familiar with it.

solid nutrition & tastes good
First Endurance EFS in the grape flavor is one of my favorite nutrition products for cycling. This product not only provides hydration but energy (calories) too. I’m not an expert but the ingredients look good and it definitely tastes great. The grape flavor is extremely mild. Obviously, that’s why they call it “mild grape”. It’s not too sweet and I’ve never had any cramping with it. It’s also fairly economical compared to similar products. On long rides in hot weather I typically fill one bottle with this and the other with Skratch hydration mix.

It works, but the taste could be better.
I used EFS for a 152 mile bike ride that I did over the summer. Great product, definitely keeps you from having cramps. It is not as smooth as some of the other drinks as far as flavor goes.

When I'm on the bike in the summertime I sweat like a (insert crude joke here). The amount of electrolytes in EFS keep me from cramping up on long rides while I'm losing all the fluid in my body. A year or so ago they changed the formula & the lemon lime which used to be my favorite flavor became a bit too tart for my liking. After trying the Fruit Punch (too sweet) I've settled on the Orange as my new drink of choice.

When it comes to these types of drinks I've tried them all, to find the best one for me. EFS I think is spot on, with their product. Works well, I tend to feel a little more endurance and I don't cramp as much.
August 16, 2013
The stuff really does work. I have been taking the lime one and i don't think there is much of a taste. Add some liquid shot in the drink, and BAM... your away.

Effective but kinda gross (lemon-lime)
The lemon-lime tastes pretty gross, but it's the only one I've had so I don't know how the other flavors are. It doesn't have the carbs and calories of CarboRocket (which I'm going to stick with) so you definitely have to supplement with bars, gels, or whatever. I'm sure its electrolyte are great, but the taste is pretty nasty, especially when it warmed up on a hot ride.

I love this stuff, i was previously using carboroket but i like the stronger taste of this better than the very subtle taste of other drinks like carboroket or hammer, but then again my stomach handles about anything. keeps my legs feeling good while riding and I dont ever gets cramps after

Better than Gatorade!
This stuff is solid as an electrolyte replacement. I'm partial to lemon/lime flavors and this one is pretty good. Not as sweet tasting as OG Gatorade.

Helps me avoid cramps. Pretty salty, wife can't stand it. Bland and I like that.

I'm a big fan of First Endurance products. The energy and endurance drink is key for long rides, replacing electrolytes. I have been on rides where my friends are bonking on climbs and I'm still motoring on. I partially attribute this to staying hydrated with a product that is designed to keep your motor running. The flavors are pretty good. I'm partial to the fruit punch and grape flavors but I'm not a huge fan of the lemon-lime.
