Press Reviews

TriRadar

The opposite end of the Powerbar spectrum to the Energize bar, the Ride bar gets a chocolate flavoured whey protein-enriched coating over a mixed fructose and glucose caramel paste with soya crisps, peanut butter and oat fibres. It’s vitamin bolstered, but vegetable oil and simple sugar syrups are well up in the mix. That means a lot of fat in the stats, including over 8 per cent saturated fats, which is almost double that of any other bar here. The comparatively low carb proportion means a slow release that only really works at low intensities but there’s a lot of protein for recovery purposes. Both flavours taste synthetic and the chocolatesque coating does them no favours in hot pockets either.

Verdict - Protein packed but synthetic-tasting fake chocolate coated, high-fat disappointment. Performance 2/5, Value 2/5, Overall 2/5.

Cycling Plus

Powerbar Ride Bar Peanut Caramel- Looks like a regular chocolate bar, and tastes like one. Not as carb rich as others and also contains the most fat of bars on test.

So Good... Blurring the boundary between confectionary and an energy bar, Powerbar Rides have good energy levels but the taste and texture of a normal chocolate bar (if you ate one of their peanut chocolate bars with your eyes closed you'd swear it was a Snickers). They're superb when you need a treat mid-ride and don't want to eat something that's purely an energy food.

No Good... The trade-off for a gorgeous taste and texture is the highest saturated fat content on test - a whopping 16.6 per cent for the peanut flavour.
