I tried it but I cannot drink that much on the bike. My drink had about 200-220 calories per bottle.

I do like Infinit though, for some reason it makes my stomach feel good after a rough swim that I may have swallowed air and water. Because of that I can take in nutrition as planned.

I do better with it than any other drink I've tried.

Definitely give it a try, it works for a lot of people.

Only on the run. Infinit Custom Blend on the bike. Supplemented by Salt Tab caps on real hot days.

I have used Infinit for several years and never used gels. Infinit has always worked great though their customer service was sub par the last few orders; I think last time I ordered something I received an email with a tracking number within one or two days though the number did not work; then probably 2 weeks later I got an email my order was being processed and would ship soon. Meantime of course I had run out, and was forced to try something different and ended up ordering (and really liking) First Endurance instead. In fact I seem to like and perform better with First Endurance.

I am just getting into the longer stuff, but did use gels or shot blocks here in there in training or before shorter races. For my 70.3 and training I went liquid though. Tried Hammer Pertpetuem first since my LBS had it. It was okay. Never made me feel bad enough to be an issue, but one or two 3+ hour sessions had me a little queasy. Switched to Infinit Go Far. Never had a single issue. Only problem is that I mix ~900 calorie bottle and I didn't reduce the flavor (grape), so it was pretty strong tasting. But to be honest, it wasn't all that bad. I reduced it on this last order, but if that wasn't an option, I would still order. Just need some water shortly after and I'm good to go. This got me through the bike and I eat what I can tolerate at aid stations on the run.

I’ve used it for almost a year with good results. One IM and one half... plus plenty of training. I find it’s very easy to use and I digest it well. I can still tolerate some real food (pack of crackers, cliff bar etc) while taking in around 280 cal hr on the bike. It’s got some protein in to help with hunger, but I still like to have a small bit of real food to help keep my stomach happy. IM bike leg I carry 3 bottles and grab 3 new ones at special needs (freeze them). Then grab additional water as needed off course. Keeps the plan simple and forces you to get your fluid down with the nutrients.

On the run I make into a gel and carry gel flask with 3-4 servings. Easy to carry and just take water at every aid station with a pinch of gel. I’ve just recently changed my run mix by dropping the flavor way down, and also sliding the carb setting to the left (more simple carbs lest malto)
Hope that makes even more palatable...

Used it for several years. Became too expensive and had a bad (funky stomach) batch here and there over the years. Switched to this Tailwind this past year.
