Press Reviews

TriRadar

The most natural tasting bar on test thanks to the flavour of dates and raisins coming through strongly. It’s a bit lower on carbs than some on test here but the fruit and maltodextrin gives you an energy hit that lasts and we didn’t feel run out of fuel. The 40g size is handy. One thing worth noting is, of all the bars here, this was the hardest pack to get into – we had to really gnaw the wrapper with our teeth – which is a shame considering the special handy size (a 65g version is also available).

Go-bars from SIS have been around for years, and have a good reputation as a high-performing energy bar for cyclists. You'll see them plucked from jersey back pockets everywhere from major pro races to your local sportive - as well as in other sports. While popular, some riders found the original 65g Go-bar simply too big to carry, or to eat in one, er, go, so a range of smaller ('mini') 40g bars are now available. T

he main ingredient of all Go-bars is fruit. I've been testing Blueberry flavour; others in the 40g range are Red Berry Chocolate Fudge and Banana Fudge - and they taste absolutely delicious. The main ingredient is grape juice, while also in the mix is maltodextrin (from maize), rice and soya derivatives, oats and dates. The texture is moist, but not too soft to fall apart in the packet.

The Blueberry flavour bar provides 137 kcal of energy, with 25g of carb, 4.6g of protein and 2g of fat (mostly unsaturated, so therefore good). I've tested these bars on a couple of long training rides and, as well as slipping down easily, they powered me along very nicely.

Most sports nutritionists agree that you need around 50g of carb per hour during an endurance event such as a sportive, so these mini Go-bars provide around half your requirements. The nutritionists also agree that a small amount of protein is desirable as it helps your body convert the carb to energy more readily. Depending on the studies you read, the suggested ratio ranges from 1:10 to 1:4 - so these Go-bars fall somewhere in the middle.
