    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.

    • A hydration mix with the power of nutrition science behind it
    • High sodium content gives your depleted body what it needs
    • No artificial junk or filler makes it easier on the belly
    • Subtle, all-natural flavors go down gently during hard efforts
    • Formulate for exercise specifically—try another hydration mix for daily hydration
    • Item #SLB0001

    Gotta have it

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I seriously love this stuff. I have been using another drink mix for years until I tried Skratch Labs. The flavor is so much better! I really like the lemon-lime and pineapple flavors. It dissolves really well and is perfect for any occasion when you sweat.

    Skratch hydrating during Speedgoat 50k

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I'm going on two years of using Skratch Labs for all my endurance training and racing, and it's amazing. For my longest mountain days, I'll preload with a glass, and then take a bottle of the exercise mix and then some hypermix powder to refill along the way. All the flavors taste great though my favorite is the raspberry. If you haven't tried the Apple Cinnamon yet, give it a try after your cold workouts. Amazing stuff!

    The Best Stuff Outthere

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I can't count how many bags of this stuff I've used over the last couple years.

    The only flavors I haven't tried is the Strawberries and the Passion Fruit. I'd definitely like to give those a shot.

    I'm a big fan of the individual servings when on extended trips. I used this stuff on Mt Rainier and definitely was a nice way to add some happiness to some junk weather by drinking some warm Skratch.

    Favorite Flavors:

    1 - Lemon Lime - this is by far the best flavor and mixes the best
    2 - Orange - this also mixes real well and tastes great
    3 - Apples & Cinnamon - this is best warm and with a little whiskey
    4 - Matcha Lemons - tastes good, I'm just not big on caffeine
    5 - Pineapple - I'm not a pineapple flavor lover, but this is definitely the best tasting pineapple food I've had.
    6 - Raspberry - This one mixes the worst of all the flavors I've tried but tastes good

    Flavors TBD: Strawberries / Passion Fruit

    Great Supplement for High Intensity

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This product has been super helpful when going on longer bike rides with plenty of climbing. Normally I am just drinking this on the climb and save some water for the downhill. I have also used it for some longer distance day hikes or after a long party night. Great way to stay hydrated!

    No race gut

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Skratch has become my go to for drink mix. When it comes to days in the saddle, training or racing, this stuff is perfect! It's easy on your stomach and doesn't have an overly sweet taste, but still gives the nutrients needed when pushing your body to the limits. My favorites are the lemon and matcha tea(w/caffeine). I race cat1 road and have been ordering this from backcountry for almost two years now and couldn't be happier, great prices and customer service!

    No more headaches

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Well Alan Lim is a genius. My post ride headaches are gone. Additionally my soccer playing daughter has a great mid/ post training and game refuel without carb overload! Lemon lime tastes GREAT!

    skratch for the win

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Skratch labs is my go-to hydration mix. Works better and is better tasting than others... and I've tried lots. The only downside, is I like to use tablets for on-road refills. The single use packets that Skratch uses just aren't as convenient.

    My first experience with Skratch :)

      Not a load of snake-oil. I drink much more water now than I did before, and I have felt so much better because of it! Taste on this is great, the added salts/sugars keep you hydrated and coming back for more. Orange definitely mixes easier and even tastes fine when warmed up due to air temps.
      Try a bag, I bet you don't go back.

      Delicious!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I like this because it has a subtle flavor so it is not overpowering, it is easy to drink, and has no bad aftertaste. When used comparatively with just regular water, it definitely helps to diminish cramping. Also it tastes good if it get warm, and on long road rides that can be important. It comes with a scoop which is nice as well. I used to use a different brand in both of my bottles, now I just use this and supplement with regular water.

      No bad stuff in this drink

        I've been using this stuff for years. It's always refreshing knowing what ingredients you are using in your sports drinks. So many out there have so much "stuff" in it, it's hard to know if it is really helping you. This stuff has clean, healthy ingredients. It also tastes so good, I even like to put a smaller dose in my water for a little bit more flavor for daily drinking.

        New Go To Hydration

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        After having used most of the top hydration mixes, finally decided to give Skratch a go. They seemed to have figured out the right balance between sodium and electrolytes without giving it a super overly sweet taste. Goes down easy with no rot gut issues and keeps me pedaling.

        Love it!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        A scoop in a bottle...tastes great! A scoop in my post-ride strawberry banana smoothie...tastes great! Not much to Skratch other than easy to digest carbs and electrolytes. Easy on the stomach and refreshingling good tasting.

        Lemon Lime and Pineapple - Hydrate

          Love this stuff. My two favorite flavors are lemon lime and pineapple. This is easy on the stomach and is great for all types/distances of riding. Light taste and not too sweet. Easy to clean out of bottles when you are done.

          A fantastic hydration solution

            After years of drinking syrupy, sugary water while still getting cramps, change had to come. I gave skratch a try and I was hooked. Very simple ingredients and light taste to complement hard training session day in and day out. I dont get tired of it, even after 4 bottles on long days.

            Still Using It

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            Admist a market flooded with options I'm still coming back to this stuff for its simplicity, delicious flavor, and availability. I seem to have zero digestive issues with it and it goes down fairly easy, even after lots of hard efforts in extreme heat.

            Great Hot Weather Recovery

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            I commute 30 miles a day regardless of the weather in the Washington DC area. These hot summer days can easily take it out of you when it’s humid and well into the 80’s in the morning and a humid 90+ in the afternoon. I’ve been mixing a bottle of this in the morning and drinking it after I get to the office to speed recovery for the afternoon ride. I find the lemons & limes flavor to be good – not too strong and it doesn’t bother my stomach when I’m on a longer ride. I also hate using anything other than water when I’m actually riding but I don’t have the same aversion to this product.

            Perfect drink for high output activities

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

            This is the perfect mix for high output activities such as biking or running. Ill fill up one of my bottles with this before I head out and it keeps me feeling better and going longer than any other mix I've tried.

            Great Product - Great Taste

              I recently tried this product on a very long multi-day ride with friends and loved it. I have since purchased Lemon-Lime and Raspberry and recommend them highly. I had previously been using Endurox much too expensive.

              Staple

                Scratch Exercise Hydration mix is a staple for all of my rides, runs, and ski tours. Both the lemon lime and raspberry flavors taste great, and go down easy even especially when it's hot and you're working hard.

                It's a great way to keep the sugar reserves topped off while also replacing electrolytes.

                How often can I take it ?. I usually hike about 15 miles every time (7 hours)
