Sponser Long Energy Multi Carb Competition Formula - to give it its full name - comes as a tub of powder that you mix with water to create an energy drink. The 'long' in the title indicates that it's designed for consumption during longer endurance events, as it contains carbohydrate and protein, plus a host of other ingredients to help you ride faster or farther, or both.

We've tested Powerbar's flagship energy drink on road.cc before, but back then it was called 'Energize'. It's recently been replaced by this new 'PowerBar Isoactive Isotonic Sports Drink' variety, so we're testing it again.
The formulation is slightly different, but overall the principle is the same: this product comes as a powder which you add to water to get a drink that contains a mix of carbohydrates to deliver and sustain energy, plus a bundle of essential minerals to help you avoid cramp.
Sponser Sport Food is a Swiss brand of nutrition products, now available in the UK. Competition Sports Drink is a powder to mix with water, containing mainly carbohydrate to provide energy, plus electrolytes to fight cramp.
High5 4:1 Energy Source is drink powder, with a mix of carbohydrate and protein at a ratio of 4:1, as the name implies. We reviewed this product back in 2010 (and some of what we said still holds), but it's recently been re-launched with a new emphasis on the nature of the carbohydrate, although not clear if the actual formula of the drink has changed.
High5 2:1 Energy Source is carbohydrate-based drink powder, available in small sachets or big tubs. We reviewed this product back in 2010, and some of what we said still holds. Since then, it's not clear if the actual formula of the drink has changed, but the product has been re-launched with a 'new generation' tag, and new claims regarding performance that are quite astounding.
CNP Pro Hydrate comes from an extensive range of cycling appropriate products, affiliations with both Team Sky and British Cycling plus a host of domestic teams having certainly pushed things along for the brand recently.
The Pro Hydrate comes in 500g containers for £11.39 a go. That gives you 12 servings, each one of which mixes with 500ml of water. To save you doing the maths, that works out at roughly 95p for each 500ml. That's more expensive than SiS or Powerbar products, for example, but there is a lot to like about Pro Hydrate.
High 5 Energy Source Super Carbs, to give it its full name, is a carbohydrate drink mix from High 5. What makes it different? The mix of glucose and fructose at a 2:1 ratio - branded as ‘Super Carbs’ - a higher proportion of fructose (fruit sugar) compared to most other products.
