Neversecond's C-Series products - formulated as a system to help athletes perform better.
Through many years of working with professional athletes and teams, we consistently hear stories about how nutrition derailed an otherwise successful race. The reality is that most endurance athletes do not know how much carbohydrate they need to consume during training and racing. Further, the products they consume contain arbitrary carbohydate values. This causes a significant amount of confusion, product misuse and inconsistent performance. Neversecond’s C-SERIES energy gels & hydration sports drinks are designed to help endurance athletes consume the right amount of energy based on scientific research. We help athletes fuel smarter, so that they can perform better both during training and on race day.
How does the C-Series system work?
All C-Series products use 30-gram increments of carbohydrate and a common composition that minimizes the risk of GI problems. The universally accepted "gold standard" for fueling is based on 30, 60 and 90-grams of carbohydrate intake per hour. Our products are formulated to match these guidelines exactly. All C-Series products are also formulated so you can mix and match them by preference. The result is that athletes can more easily calculate, plan and perfect how they fuel so that they are much more confident on race day.
How do I know how much carbohydrate is in each C-Series product?
We make it really easy! The name of the products indicates the carbohydrate value of the product. A C30 product contains 30 grams of carbohydrate. A C90 product contains 90 grams.
What are the dots on each package for?
The dots are "Neversecond Units." Exch dot represents 30 grams of carbohydrate. A C30 product has 1 dot. A C90 product has 3 dots. Need 360 grams of carbohydrate for your event? That's 12 dots. Just count out 12 dots and you've got the amount of fuel for your event!
What should my fuel intake be?
Fuel intake depends on exercise duration and intensity. The longer your session, the more intake you need per hour. For anything less than 1 hour, you really do not require any fuel. For 1:00 to 1:30, you should take 30 grams of carbohydrate. For sessions between 1:30 and 2:30, you should consider 60 grams of carbohydrate PER HOUR. For sessions longer than 2:30, you should consider 90 grams PER HOUR.
Which C-Series products are best for me?
When planning for your session or race, always separate fuel and fluid needs. They should be considered independently. Your fuel calculation is driven by duration and intensity. Your fluid needs depend on sweat rate and weather. It is much more personalized. You should also consider practicality when choosing the best products for you. Can you afford to fumble with wrappers? Are you self-supporting? What sort of stations are avaialble on-course? We are always available to help you with planning your nutrition. Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
