helps you go longer and feel stronger

  • Our Hydration Sport Drink Mix was created for a simple purpose - to replace the electrolytes lost in sweat and to provide a little bit of energy when working out, without offending your palate or gut.

    We initially created this drink because some of the world’s best athletes needed better. Conventional sports drinks made them sick. They were undrinkable - too sweet, over-flavored, and didn’t even replace what was lost in sweat – which defeated the whole purpose, like fighting thirst with more thirst.

    The best athletes needed something to safely hydrate, something to quench their thirst, and something to help them perform better. So with their help, we reimagined sports drinks, stripping down what used to be a neon-colored carnival to its bare essentials. In the process, we learned that simple wasn’t just better for elite athletes, it was better for everyone who works hard and sweats.

    The result is a sports drink with minimal sugar (4g per 100 ml) and a ratio of sugar (glucose + fructose) that is optimized for faster absorption, an electrolyte profile that actually matches what is lost in sweat (800 mg sodium, 80 mg potassium, 100 mg calcium, and 80 mg of magnesium per liter), and only real fruit for flavor for a light and refreshing taste that you can drink all day. That’s it - less sugar, the right electrolyte profile, and real fruit. So, if you’ve never met a sports drink you wanted to take home, your luck is about to change.

    Drink when thirsty. Don't when not. Repeat as necessary.

    New Cucumber and Salt flavor is slamming!

    So refreshing! So good!
    Love this new flavor and been a long term fan of skratch.


    Love the cucumber lime flavor, but just a tad too sweet for my tastes so I dilute it and it’s near perfect! It’s crazy refreshing and definitely not your typical workout drink.


    One of my fave flavors for riding—not too sweet and a great flavor

    Cucumber/Lime - Just OK.

    The cucumber/lime flavor is decent, but I was hoping for a bit more refreshment. The cucumber taste is quite overpowering, and I think a bit more lime would help balance it out. I might experiment by adding it to a Liquid Death Sparkling Water (Black Can), using only half a scoop, and see how that turns out. I'll stick to fruit-only options next time.

    It's going to take me a while to finish this bag. It's not bad, but it's not a standout in my opinion.


    Love it

    New favorite!

    Used to use a tablet formulated sports drink and tried this based on a friend’s suggestion. Never looking back! Tastes great, doesn’t have an acidic aftertaste, and gets the job done during a run. Highly recommend!

    Cucumber lime, new favorite!!

    I've used Skratch hydration mixes for a while now. They're more expensive than some other brands, but absolutely worth it in my opinion. My favorite has always been lemon lime but the new cucumber lime flavor is the best! It tastes like sweet cucumbers and it's wonderfully refreshing and easy to drink. I like a lighter flavor so I use one scoop in a liter bottle, and add some of the unsweetened hydration mix if I need extra electrolytes.
    I live in the South, work an outdoor job and run long distances so I use this stuff almost every day, and it makes all the difference in how I feel.

    Hydration mix

    My son bought this for me while I was going through chemotherapy. It was one of the few things that helped me feel better. I highly recommend these products

    You Can Do It!

    I love all the Skratch products I’ve purchased and consumed over the years. Always enjoy with my bike rides, bike events, hiking trips or long hours of yard work the Hydration Sport Mix, Energy Chews and Energy Bars are all great tasting and keep you going to the finish line! The convenient single serving packs are super handy for replenishing your water bottles midway through your rides and sharing with family and friends :) Go for it!


    Wonderful! Mild flavor if you’re in search of an electrolyte mix that isn’t overly sweet! All their flavors are delicious & mild.
