QT2 Systems, LLC Announces Nutrition Partnership with Gatorade Endurance

May 03, 2018

(Boston, MA) — QT2 Systems, LLC (LLC) has announced a partnership with Gatorade Endurance. Under the new agreement, Gatorade Endurance will be the official Hydration Partner of the QT2 Systems, LLC Brands (which include QT2 Systems, OutRival Racing, The Cycling Formula, The Run Formula and The Core Diet).  Gatorade Endurance will have exclusivity with the QT2 Systems Brands with their Gatorade Endurance Formula, Energy Chews, Energy Gels, and Gatorlytes.   

Grounded in years of hydration and sports nutrition research conducted by the Gatorade Sports Science Institute, the Gatorade Endurance line of products is an elite line of sports nutrition products for endurance athletes who have specific fueling needs and performance goals. The products vary in the amount and type of nutrients they contain and the functional packaging in which they are delivered, including sports drinks, gels, chews and electrolyte powder blends. Gatorade Endurance Formula is a specialized sports drink designed to provide hydration and fuel during prolonged training and racing  (2.5 hours +) when fluid and electrolyte losses can be significant. Reformulated last summer, it now contains no artificial flavors, has a light flavor designed for athletes training and racing for prolonged periods of time, and offers a multi-carbohydrate blend to help endurance athletes performance and lower the risk of stomach discomfort during a hard training session or race. Last year, Gatorade Endurance also introduced an Energy Gel, which provides carbohydrate energy when consumed prior to and during prolonged training or racing. The gels have a smooth texture and a clean, light taste and comes in three flavors; Blackberry, Apple Pear and Vanilla.

A major benefit of the partnership is Gatorade Endurance Formula is offered on 300+ races across the US per year, giving LLC athletes the opportunity to train with what’s on-course.

"We are excited to consolidate our performance nutrition to a single partner and with a brand as strong and research backed as Gatorade Endurance. Their product line covers our athlete’s primary performance nutrition needs - sport drink, chews, gels, and salts.  This product line contains adequate amounts of what I call the big three: 1- carbohydrate, 2- sodium, and 3- fluid. It’s also very convenient for our athlete base to have one partner that they we can depend on for each of the 4 primary performance products we use and recommend within our fueling plans." said Jesse Kropelnicki, Founder & Managing Director of QT2 Systems.  

QT2 Systems, LLC looks forward to growing its presence in the Endurance Industry and together with Gatorade Endurance, making an impact on how athletes look at their nutrition relative to their training and racing needs, plan accordingly and race to the best of their ability.
