Souplesse Subscriptions - July

Big changes are afoot for July - we really think this helps take our offering to the next level! We've been listening to our customer feedback (form here) and made a couple of key changes:

  • The ability to choose your nutrition & hydration brand of choice

  • Two shipping dates per month (1st and 15th)

Simply put - more choice!

We know that it is not especially easy to eat on the bike. Your busy focused on the road / trail and your surroundings. Your body is already working hard and food needs to be kind on the stomach and easy to digest. Moreover we believe that energy food doesn't need to be unhealthy food. It is typical for most of us to find something that works for our bodies and stick with it. We have tried and tested a few brands here at Souplesse that we think deliver the best of the best performance on a number of fronts. We now have a choice of Maurten, Precision Fuel & Hydration and STYRKR products available to choose from in our subscription boxes. This enables you to get continuity for your digestive system and/or experiment with something good quality and with few ingredients.

So, what's in the boxes this month?

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: SLT07 1000mg Electrolyte tablets - multiple award winners in 2024! Quick release, fast absorbing and gentle on the stomach - perfect to rehydrate on the bike.

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

Maintenance Items from Topeak, Effetto Mariposa, Muc Off, Morgan Blue & Squirt!
