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.

  7. Best energy bars on the market
    Review by JM

    In my opinion these are the best energy bars on the market also backed up by top reviews. The performance they deliver, the vitamins they are infused with and the flavours are all excellent. I personally use the Yogurt Apricot (easiest to chew whilst riding) and the uncoated chocolate which is a nice chewy consistency and tastes like chocolate rice crispie cakes. (Posted on 26/02/2016)

  12. Great Taste - use in Winter!
    Review by Derrick Llewellyn

    The chocolate and strawberry combo is delicious with no upset stomach (as usual for Zipvit products), but the chocolate is prone to melting in warm weather. Will probably leave these in the cupboard until the Autumn/Winter (Posted on 21/08/2015)

  17. Great products
    Review by Richardh

    Been using ZV 8 and 9 bars for several years. The bars are easy to eat and digest. Great flavour and consistency - not too chewy or sticky like others bars. Definitely my favorite. (Posted on 22/04/2015)

  18. Tasty and easily digestible
    Review by Flo M-W

    I really don't get on well with gels (they make me feel pretty ill during and after big events) so was looking for an alternative. I ordered the Uncoated Chocolate bars and they're very tasty - pretty similar to eating a Coco Pops cereal bar! I used them for Brighton Marathon this year and had no problems at all which is unheard of for me, usually I feel sick or get stomach cramps after a race. Noticeable energy boost after you eat them too which I've never really experienced with gels. (Posted on 22/04/2015)

  21. Great Tasting easily Digestible bar. At Last!
    Review by Jackie Gilligan

    Tried the uncoated chocolate bar today and for once upon returning from my ride my stomach isn't bloated and during a rainy cold day I was able to quickly and easily open and eat this yummy little boost. Very digestible, tasty without that horrible cloiy texture of so many other bars. Going to use these from now on for my long rides and Sportives. Thank you ZipVit team for cracking it at last.

  22. Taste Sensation
    Review by Robbo

    The long quest for the ultimate taste sensation is over. These are deliciously soft and chewy but are not heavy to swallow. The flavours are great. Have enjoyed them all and tend to buy the mixed cases for variety. Ordered several times. Going to stock up while discounted. (Posted on 25/03/2015)

  23. Good quality bars
    Review by Hamilton

    These bars are great, come in an assorted box of flavours and I like them all. Easily digestible and taste great unlike other bars that I have eaten over the years. (Posted on 17/03/2015)

  24. Tried the rest now found the best
    Review by Dawn Hopley

    I love these bars. They come in great flavours and they do the job as described. They are not too chewy or dry like some other products that I have choked on in the past. Also do not upset my tummy like others.
    I'm currently training to run a 38 mile endurance event and these will definitely be in my backpack. (Posted on 04/02/2015)
