It mixes easily from the fat or thin bottle-friendly sachet, and a natural rather than over-sweet taste means you can start gulping it down before you even get your breath back.

Next step in sport nutrition
I first used OTE products during the Trois Etapes cycling event for the charity Right To Play - I was really impressed with the products and think they are the next step in sport nutrition.

They taste natural
The packaging on both the gels and drink sachets is a little different too: each has two tear options, one to sip/for small bottles, one to slurp/for wide neck bottles.
They are largely made from fruit juice concentrates with no artificial sweeteners, colourings or flavourings. Based on our first few samples, they taste natural too. We'd go so far to say they're first gel we've ever had that made us want another one immediately afterwards.

OTE have certainly made an impression!
The most striking superficial difference between OTE and some other nutrition products on the market is an external one. On the front of each packet are very clear guidelines on what the product does, for example the energy drink states it is designed to help you hydrate, fuel and perform and will provide 45-60 minutes of energy. Then on the back of each packet is a very clear nutritional breakdown plus some user instructions and a ‘top tip’ on consumption. Although basic things, this approach is very refreshing and worth bearing in mind for those of you frustrated trying to decipher relevant information from cluttered packaging.
