clip_image002_0000What is CLIF Shot® Energy Gel?
Clif Shot Energy Gel is an easily digested source of carbohydrates and electrolytes for performance athletes during activity. It is the only energy gel made with 85-90% organic ingredients giving athletes essential nutrition for performance.

New to CLIF Shot?
Simply put, CLIF Shot® Energy Gel provides quick energy to athletes while racing and training. With our new formula and flavors, getting energized between breaths has never been easier.

How do you eat CLIF Shot Energy Gel?
Generally, performance athletes need to consume 200-400 calories per hour from all sources, such as gels, chewables, bars and drinks. We recommend consuming one packet 15 minutes before activity, followed by 2-3 packets per hour during activity to help support your needs.

Why is CLIF Shot better?

  • Effective
    CLIF Shot provides scientifically backed ingredients in quantities high enough to improve performance.
  • Easy to use packaging
    CLIF Shot’s packaging is designed to be seamless to use in motion. It stows easily, then opens and delivers quickly so you won’t miss a beat.
  • Taste
    CLIF Shot is field tested to taste great when racing and training, putting your taste buds on overdrive.
  • Organic
    CLIF Shot uses the highest level of organic ingredients possible.

clip_image004What are CLIF Shot Bloks?
CLIF Shot Bloks are the latest nutrition option for endurance athletes. CLIF Shot Bloks energy chews are semi solid, easy to chew sources of carbohydrates and electrolytes — your body’s preferred source of fuel during activity.

When should Bloks be eaten?
Half a packet of CLIF Shot Bloks can be eaten 15 minutes prior to activity to increase blood sugar levels, followed by 1-2 packets per hour during activity. Consumption of CLIF Shot Bloks should always be followed with a mouthful of water.
How should I eat Bloks, compared to CLIF Shot® Energy Gel?
CLIF Shot Energy Gel and CLIF Shot Bloks are easily interchangeable since they both provide carbohydrate to working muscles. Since 3 pieces of CLIF Shot Bloks equal the same calories as one CLIF Shot Energy Gel packet you can go back and forth between each, while easily keeping track of your calorie intake.

clip_image006CLIF® BAR is crafted to perform.
CLIF Bar is the original energy bar made with organic ingredients that delivers an optimal blend of Nutrition for Sustained Energy. By combining carbohydrate with protein and fat, CLIF Bar helps extend energy release. This makes it a perfect choice for athletes who want to push further while also respecting their bodies and the planet.

When should you eat Clif Bars?
For best results, CLIF Bars should be eaten about one to three hours before exercise along with water to prevent hunger and supply energy to working muscles. During prolonged, lower-intensity exercise such as hiking or bike touring, CLIF Bars can be eaten during activity to help satiate hunger and meet carbohydrate demands. CLIF Bars can also be eaten as a snack between meals or during a long, busy day to help sustain energy.
