SUCCEED! CLIP2 sports drink is designed for use in lengthy training or racing that last more than 6 hours. It supplies:

  • Easily digested carbohydrate for muscle fuel
  • Branched Chain Amino Acids and protein to preserve the athlete's muscle
  • Medium Chain Triglyceride to provide energy from fat, and stabilize the digestive tract
  • Electrolytes to replace those lost in sweat

In long events, 5 to 9% of the total energy needed comes from amino acids, especially those in the branched chain family. The reduced concentration of those in the blood gives rise to mental fatigue and loss of concentration after many hours of exercise.

If amino acids are not taken during the event, they are scavenged from the athlete's own muscle. SUCCEED! CLIP2 contains branched chain and other amino acids for:

  • Energy production
  • Prevention of muscle breakdown
  • Reduction of mental fatigue
  • Faster recovery after the event
  • Support of the body's immune system

Drinks which contain only carbohydrates tend to acidify the digestive tract after many hours of use. The Medium Chain Triglyceride in CLIP2 reduces that tendency because digestion of fat prompts the addition of acid neutralizing bicarbonate to the digestive tract, counteracting excess stomach acid. The MCT also supplies energy from fat, sparing the runner's supply of muscle glycogen. Studies show that athletes who ingest MCT with carbohydrate can work longer than if they had consumed only carbohydrate.

CLIP2 has enough electrolytes for medium distance events. For longer events, or events in hot weather, it works best when used with SUCCEED! Buffer/Electrolyte Caps.

CLIP2 comes in pre-packaged, single-serving packets designed for use with the common 20 ounce bottles for ultra packs. Bags of CLIP 2 can be carried in pockets or a pack, or put in drop bags along your route. Unlike packets of gel, these are easy to carry with you after opening. Each packet supplies 152 calories.

CLIP 2 & S! caps

I've been using CLIP 2 for literally decades in all training distances and races from 50K to 100 miles. CLIP 2 provides even nutrition and hydration, and S! caps provide balanced electrolytes. Stocked up with a case of CLIP 2 in preparation for fall training and 50M and 48HR races. Thanks for continuing to offer these outstanding products!

clip, amino, and s caps

I have been using clip, amino, and S caps for ultra running for at least 20 years. That combination has been the best to provide consistent nutrition and no GI upset. I usually dilute the combo in the hotter months. If you can mix the clip ahead of time and leave it in your drop bag it is easier to deal with than opening packets. The clip can be lumpy. You can still grab the chips and PB sandwiches at the aid station but if they don,t have what you like you'll be fine. I love it!
