    What

    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

    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

    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.

  • Supplement Facts

  • Research

    Zipvits ZV8 Energy Bars are some of the most popular within the pro peleton. Although the science of energy bars might seem straightforward Zipvit conducted extensive research to produce an easy digesting bar that gave rapid and sustained energy delivery. The carbohydrate sources were scientifically selected to provide improved energy delivery without stomach upsets. Zipvit also included their unique synergistic blend of antioxidants and vitamins to protect against damaging free radicals and maintain energy production. During early season testing with Cervelo riders they all reported that they had more energy and felt less fatigued during training.

    By March 2009 riders were reporting that some bars were melted during hot races and requested if a special hot weather bar could be produced. By April 2009 Carlos Sastre was testing the prototype Zipvit bar during his long training rides in Spain. Based on his feedback the first batch of ZV8 hot weather chocolate bars was produced in May 2008. The very first time the bar was used in racing Cervelo rider Simon Gerrans won stage 14 of the Tour of Italy, where temperatures exceed 35oC. The team went on to take at total of 4 stage wins using the new ZV8 hot weather bar, with 2 wins for Carlos Sastre who finished 3rd overall. By June 2009 the 'prototype ZV8 hot weather chocolate bar was available to Zipvit Sport customers a month later.

    After Zipvits extensive development work on the ZV8 energy bars during 2008 and 2009 they werent surprised with the feedback from the Radioshack riders, who started using Zipvit products in 2010...."They love the bars".

    Great taste! Review by helen
    Quality
    I do a lot of road biking and I find these bars are the best tasting/flavoursome/digestible bars on the market. They don't clog your mouth up or lie heavy in the stomach. I always buy the mixed box as I prefer a variety of tastes and all are great to me. I will definitely by sticking with the Zipvit energy bars. (Posted on 26/02/2014)

    Excellent Product Review by Newsonid
    Quality
    I sampled as many energy bars as I could from a recent bike show, and the ZipVit bars were by far the best in terms of taste and ease of digestion. Just the right size and combination of ingredients. Perfect for keeping the hunger at bay on those longer rides. (Posted on 18/02/2013)

    Best i've tried Review by Trems
    Quality
    I've used all sorts of bars over the years before and during mountain biking and road cycling. These are my favorite both on taste (peach & yog) and because they sit easily on the stomache during excersize and arent too chewy. The yoghurt coating isnt too sweet either. All round, a great bar and can and do highly recommend. (Posted on 02/07/2012)

    Very tasty - I was surprised. Review by Ti-Bike
    Quality
    I had a ZV8 in a sample pack... gave it try out last week on a 105 mile loop to Bridport, Dorset. Without doubt I felt much fresher and energy levels were up. It tasted good too (Yogurt & Peach) - and, importantly, didn't melt. I usually eat proper food on my rides, but given how impressed I was with this product - I've ordered up a box of 20! Nice one.
