My problem is somewhat unique, i guess, but it is a problem nonetheless..
I'm running Vincero's magnetic bottles, loving them..there is one issue however. For instance, when i'm taking Isostar energy drink with me, after preparing the drink, it's producing gases and during the ride my downtube becomes really messy, because as the pressure increases it pushes the mouthpiece open..and again...and again...
So..I'm looking for any powdered energy drink that doesn't produce gases! Thanks! :beerchug:

This will not impress anyone, but good old Gatorade powder works great for me.

I love good old fashioned Gatorade Lemon-Lime too.
it is like pure electricity to a fatigued and dehydrated brain. :D

Have you tried a camelback bottle? I know it will not work with that system but cheap bottles simply don't hold fluid wells.

I don't think you understood me right. The Vincero bottles have absolutely no problem holding fluids, and are by no means cheap. The problem lies within the way the mouthpiece works. It needs pressure to open up, but as i described, drinks that produce gases will cause this kind of problem.

There is absolutely no going back after trying Vincero's system. It's absolutely noise-free, convenient, looks the part :thumbup:

Low fat Nesquik I have found to be better than any other energy drink. Freeze it in the summer in 80 degree weather. Fine in cooler weather. The key is to not rely on it for the only source of liquid or energy. I make it last 2 hours drink water to fill in and a Cliff Bar for the extra calories during the two hours.

OK I got it now. Thanks.

From what Vincero told me, the caps are compatible with Specialized threaded caps. That may help.

I use the First Endurance EFS drink stuff and it's great. Mixed with their Pre-Race energy booster powder is even better. Doesn't fizz at all either, not like putting coke or redbull in your bottle

and it is DELICIOUS!!

I tried it over at Interbike (and I still have a few packets). Possibly the best tasting drink product in the entire show without a doubt. I also commended them on their icon and packaging, however there were minor improvements that I requested and they took down with some notes, I'm wondering if they'll see those through.
