What is special about the ZV8 Energy bar? The ZV8 Energy bar is a highly acclaimed, class leading, energy bar that is taking the world of cycling by storm. Specially formulated for endurance athletes, it contains multiple carbohydrate sources to maximize energy delivery. These carbohydrates have also been specially selected for easy digestion during exercise.
Why use ZV8 bars during training? The energy demands of training are rarely as high as racing, but it is still important to use Zipvit sport energy products. This is because exercise intensity is the primary stimulus for body adaptations that increase oxygen uptake (VO2max) and power. Using ZV8 energy bars in training allows higher exercise intensities to be maintained, helping to increase the stimulus for adaptation and improvement.
How does it work? ZV8 Energy bars improve performance by providing the body with easily digested carbohydrate energy during exercise. This is achieved without stomach upsets, so you can easily meet your carbohydrate needs and maximize performance. Taken after exercise they also help recovery by speeding up muscle refueling.

Review by Graeme
The best tasting bar I have tried and its easily digested. I've tried a few flavours but the uncoated chocolate is my favourite. (Posted on 22/01/2015)
