What is CLIF Shot® Energy Gel?

CLIF SHOT is a great-tasting sports nutrition line for performance athletes that delivers essential energy and hydration, plus fast muscle recovery, using organic and other nutritious ingredients. The CLIF SHOT line takes a streamlined approach to nutrition, delivering only what the body needs most while training and competing. Before, during, and after activity, performance athletes are covered with CLIF SHOT – including CLIF SHOT Bloks, CLIF SHOT Energy Gel, CLIF SHOT Electrolyte Hydration Drink Mix, and CLIF SHOT Protein Recovery Drink Mix.

New to CLIF Shot?

Simply put, CLIF Shot® Energy Gel provides quick energy to athletes while racing and training. It is the only energy gel made with 85-90% organic ingredients giving athletes essential nutrition for performance.

How do you eat CLIF Shot Energy Gel?

Generally, performance athletes need to consume 200-400 calories per hour from all sources, such as gels, chewables, bars and drinks. We recommend consuming one packet 15 minutes before activity, followed by 2-3 packets per hour during activity to help support your needs.
