Souplesse Subscriptions - August

We are excited that this month we have even more choice than ever before! Building upon the nutrition options added lats month we now have more options in each category for even more flexibility for you to customise your box, your way.


Nutritionally we have three bundles, one from each of our trusted brands:

  • Maurten - our favourite combination of Gel 160 and Solid 225. Gel 160 makes the most of Maurten's hydrogel technology — encapsulating 40 grams of carbohydrates in each serving. Solid 225 contains a glucose-fructose mix that shows similar absorption rates to carbohydrate drinks and gives you something to chew on!

  • Precision Fuel & Hydration - PF30 Gels and Chews to rapidly deliver 30g of carbs into your system with a non-sickly taste. Light and easy on the stomach and lightweight and compact to carry.

  • STYRKR - Gel 30, Bar 50 and STYRKRTHON. Gel 30 brings 30g of carbohydrates and a little nitric oxide boost to fuel top performance. Bar 50 has that bit greater carbohydrate content and all natural ingredients to fuel your rides. To recover we love the play on the old Marathon, with the STYRKRTHON a vegan protein bar that is super tasty.



On the hydration front there are options to choose from too:

  • Maurten: Drink 320 / 320 CAF, the world's most carbohydrate-rich sports drink, based on the same hydrogel technology as Maurten's Gels. 80g of carbs per serving (500 ml). Our boxes come with and without 100mg caffeine options, utilizing the hydrogel technology to hide the bitterness of the caffeine.

  • Precision Fuel & Hydration: PH1000 Electrolyte tablets. These are a reasonably strong electrolyte drink designed to help you stay hydrated when you're sweating. Hypotonic formula enhances the absorption of water during exercise. Perfect for warm summer rides.

  • STYRKR: Dual Carb Drink MIX90 - Quick release, fast absorbing and gentle on the stomach - perfect to rehydrate and refuel on the bike.


We are proud of this month's sock design! August is all about the Vuelta a Espana so we thought we'd celebrate that. We haven't gone overboard, kept it simple and classy with a nod to the Vuelta on our classic white summer sock from our friends at Gobik.
