TORQ Hypotonic is sold in a handy plastic screw-top container containing 6 X 18g hypotonic sachet/sticks. Each stick mixes with water to make an optimal 500ml dose, specifically aimed at hydration, where events/sessions are no more than an hour long and heavy sweat loss is anticipated. TORQ Hypotonic can also be used as part of the TORQ Fuelling System during longer events and the handy 6-pack makes carrying your drinks very easy, as it slips nicely into the rear pocket of a cycle jersey.
Each hypotonic stick contains 15grams of carbohydrate, so achieving optimal fuelling for longer durations using TORQ Hypotonic alone is literally impossible as it would require consuming 3 litres of fluid! It is therefore essential that you read and understand the TORQ Fuelling System and consume enough of TORQ’s solid fuelling units (TORQ Gel, TORQ Bar and new TORQ Chew) in these scenarios.
Our advice for longer efforts, where fuelling is required as well as hydration, is to use TORQ Energy as your drink source, because the isotonic nature of this product will provide a better balance between fuelling and hydration – that said, the choice is clearly yours, as long as you consume 2-3 TORQ Units per hour.
