GU Roctane Ultra Endurance Energy Gel

Roctane takes the regular GU energy gel, amplifies the original recipe and adds new ingredients to boost performance in sustained, high-intensity efforts. Starting with the original GU's gel recipe that includes a mix of complex and simple carbohydrates, electrolytes for replenishment and caffeine you'll also find Roctane contains a host of additions to boost endurance performance.

The addition of an increased amount of histidine, an essential amino acid, which acts as a buffer and slow the energy-sapping lactic acid build-up in muscles.

Higher levels of citrates (potassium citrate, sodium citrate, and citric acid) to help speed the conversion of carbohydrates into energy molecules and, like histidine, help mitigate acid build-up.

More of the branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) leucine, valine and isoleucine to serve as another fuel source, aid in recovery and help maintain mental focus and reduce fatigue by limiting the central nervous system's production of serotonin.

Finally the addition of a new ingredient, the amino acid complex Ornithine Alpha-Ketoglutarate (OKG), which limits the body's tendency to break down muscle protein tissue during extremely hard training and racing days. OKG keeps you going longer and promotes a speedier recovery.

Recommended Usage

Roctane has been specifically formulated for your most intense training and racing. If you face a hard, multi-hour training session or race (think marathons, ultra-marathons, Ironman distance triathlons, 100-plus-mile bike rides, 12/24 hour MTB races or adventure races), take one to two Roctane gels 15 minutes prior to the start, followed by an additional packet every 30-45 minutes along the way.

GU Roctane Endurance Gel is available in Blueberry Pomegranate or Vanilla Orange.

Press Reviews

Velo News

GU's latest gel formula, Roctane, is designed for fuelling you over the long haul. Roctane is intended for multi-hour training and races, or when you have multiple rounds per day. GU includes a blend of amino acids that it claims aids in recovery and mitigate muscular breakdown and fatigue. These amino acids must be pretty pricey though, as GU's Roctane costs double the price of most gels. That said, Roctane didn't upset our stomachs, and kept us feeling good after several hours of riding.
