Gelbot. I had seen them on the internet and thought they looked pretty handy. Scott from Outside PR was awesome and sent me one as well as some yummy GU flavors I had not tried before.
I got to try the Peppermint Gu. Love it! I wasn't sure I would it seemed like an odd GU flavor, but it is yummy!
Chocolate Raspberry Roctane and Island Nectar Roctane were the two other flavors I got to try. I am a big fan of Roctane. Maybe it is all the caffeine but I also notice a big energy boost on Roctane.
I like both of those flavors as well.
The Gelbot is pretty simple. You disassemble all the parts to clean it. I love that part I was worried about trying to clean leftover GU out of it. No problem though. It is very easy to clean.
I found it a little hard to suck out the gel, but that was probably because the three times I have used it, the temperature outside has been below freezing. Cold temps make for thick hard to move gels! I still was able to get all of the gel out and the water when I needed it.
So how does it work?
To get the gel out push the mouth piece down, to get out water pull the mouth piece up. The mouth piece is easy to push up and pull down just using your teeth if you need to.
Hydrapak makes the Gelbot and they have some other really great ways to hydrate yourself as well. You should check out their website if you are looking for new hydration carriers while you run, hike, or bike!
