Company will supply USA Cycling members with clinically proven, peer reviewed Performance and Recovery Lotion for training and racing
Topical Edge has come a long way in just a year and a half, and one of the latest milestones is forming a partnership with USA Cycling to get Performance & Recovery Lotion in the hands, and on the legs, of USA Cycling members and National Team riders.
“Working with USA Cycling athletes is an important step for our young brand,” said Topical Edge General Manager Jeff Byers. “After being validated in the lab through a clinical trial and now peer reviewed, it’s a natural and exciting step for us to work closely with so many of the country’s cyclists representing the US.”
Since hitting the market in late 2016, Topical Edge’s Performance & Recovery Lotion has gone from being an unknown product in the sporting world to now being the go-to for athletes in training and competition. Top athletes in numerous sports have become consistent PR Lotion users after realizing the real benefits provided by the sodium bicarbonate lotion, benefits that were proven in a clinical trial that has now been peer reviewed and accepted to be published.
“We are looking forward to this relationship with Topical Edge”, said Scott Schnitzspahn, Vice President of Elite Athletics for USA Cycling. “This partnership will allow riders and racers alike to have the chance to use the product as they work to improve their training and overall performance.”
PR Lotion’s patented delivery technology allows athletes to get the proven benefits of acid-buffering sodium bicarbonate directly through the skin and into the muscles without the side effects associated with oral supplementation. Aclinical trial conducted at San Diego State University with 20 elite cyclists, which has now been peer reviewed and accepted to be published, found that test subjects using PR Lotion experienced:
Aseparate study by Source Endurance also found that subjects could complete 20% more high-intensity intervals prior to exhaustion.
As part of the relationship, all USA Cycling members receive a discounted rate on PR Lotion while National Team riders have complete access to it for racing and training.
This product is phenomenal! Truly is a game changer. Used it recently for my 12+ Hour Spartan Endurance Race that required me running over 30 miles, climbing up mountains, and doing over 65 obstacle courses. Amp Human was critical in me finishing this race! Will continue using it and telling others about it
I am consistently surprised by how well this stuff works. I use it for all my long rides and am much less sore the following day than I expect to be.
I used this for the first time during a half marathon and absolutely loved it! I had almost no pain in my legs, WAY less than normal, and I was able to run longer because of it. Highly recommend this!
I’ve been so happy with PR Lotion. I can push through hard intervals and race with confidence that I do t have to overreach and burn out early. There are plenty other products that make claims, but PR Lotion has the research and results.
I love this stuff. My legs don't cramp, they aren't sore afterwards, and it's become a pivotal part of my pre-race routine.
I have been using the lotion mainly for my lactic threshold sessions. I get through the workouts with less pain and find that I am able to recover for the next day. The biggest plus is not feeling so much of the burning sensation in my hamstrings as much after high intensity interval runs.
The first two times I used PR lotion, I won two UCI cyclocross races! Of course, it's become a staple part of my training and racing routine since then. Recently, I competed in 4 events at Sea Otter in 3 days - using PR lotion before and after each one. I won the final event and was amazed how well my legs held up for all of the efforts.
