    Perhaps not surprisingly due to it being the smallest bar on the test, it does have the lowest carbohydrate content of all five bars being tested, with just over 32 grams per bar.

    This isn’t too much of an issue as long as you are aware of your carbohydrate intake and don’t overindulge in multiple bars to make up for it.


    At just 45 grams in weight it is the smallest bar in the test, which means it is barely noticeable in your back pocket, weighing less than most energy gels.

    This can sometimes make it tricky to find in your jersey pocket, which isn’t ideal if you’re looking for a bar in a rush, or riding along in difficult weather conditions.
