Take a walk in the great outdoors and relish in the clean, fresh air. It invigorates your body and mind and sends you to another place; away from the demands of work and life’s commitments.
We love our wild, outdoor spaces and the sports it draws with them such as hiking, trekking, rock climbing and mountaineering.
Whether you dabble in a few, or passionately delve into one particular sport; it will likely take you to a beautiful place such the forest, the desert, or the mountains. In all it’s glory, the great outdoors brings us back to a place where we playfully enjoyed life, such as our childhood.
Outdoor sports can be the perfect way to bring you back to nature and provide a fantastic physical adventure at the same time.
Often, not only will you be fighting the demands of nature such as wind, rain, and extreme temperature fluctuations; you will also need to make sure you are properly nourished and hydrated to be able to sustain the physical demands of your outdoor activity.
SoLo can be the perfect companion on your trek or back country hiking trip when you need a boost, as it provides a concentrated source of essential nutrients, is shelf-stable and pre-packaged, and tastes great! The convenient size makes it easy to throw in your knapsack or take along in your rock climbing pack.
Being in the forest, the desert, or the mountains is also more likely to invigorate your green passion. As such, we would like to remind you to carry out what you bring in and try to avoid any detrimental effects you may cause to the natural surroundings.
It is important to remember that everything in the wilderness has a function and contributes to the natural ecosystem, so tread lightly. To put it simply, try adopting a “less is more” attitude by trying to subside on less in all aspects of your life. You will be helping to reduce the impact on the world’s diminishing resources, and at the same time you will likely begin to enjoy the “finer” things in life that we tend to take for granted.
Usage Instructions:
To give you a steady stream of energy, enjoy 1 to 2 SoLo bars prior to beginning activities such as hiking, trekking and mountaineering. SoLo can also be enjoyed throughout these activities when you begin to feel hunger and need to replenish when on particularly long adventures. Your hunger will be kept at bay and your energy will remain stable throughout.
For activities more physically demanding such as rock climbing, we recommending eating 1 to 2 SoLo bars 30 to 60 minutes prior to beginning your climb. You could also keep an extra bar in your pack and take small bites throughout your climb, depending on the intensity and duration. Also remember to consume 200-400mL of water with each SoLo bar(s) to ensure proper digestion and nutrient absorption.
