My Favourite CNP Product

"One of the biggest things we have developed with CNP are the Hydro Gels, because its so hard to get food on board especially when you are in the mountains. If you are trying to chew solid food and breathe at the same time, sometimes it can make you feel a bit sick. The Hydro Gels are designed to help you in cross winds or getting up the mountain, they are really light and easy to take so you can take as many as you need in a race."
