What is UnTapped?

UnTapped is pure organic Vermont maple syrup in portable packaging. Maple syrup naturally delivers the energy kick and some of the athletic nutrients sought by runners, cyclists, skiers, and anyone else playing in the outdoors.

For too long athletic nutrition has been sweetened with cheap synthetic sugars. The simplicity of endurance sports deserves a simple ingredient — 100% pure, unadulterated, organic Vermont maple syrup, the all-natural, low glycemic-index sports fuel.

Maple Syrup:

UnTapped is produced simply by boiling maple sap directly from a maple tree. Because it’s unprocessed, it naturally delivers vital minerals such as potassium, manganese, iron, calcium, and zinc. It also has essential vitamins, a variety of critical amino acids, and is bursting with antioxidants that help with proper recovery.

Philosophically aligned with the most recent sports nutrition science, UnTapped has a lower glycemic index than most other sugars or gels, meaning it breaks down more slowly keeping you fueled longer. 

UnTapped is all natural. No lengthy list of supplemented ingredients, artificial colors and flavors here! Go back to the basics.

Ted King + Slopeside:

Ted King is a ProTour cyclist from New England with a penchant for fueling lengthy races and tough training rides with nips of maple syrup. He is wistfully nostalgic whenever he sees a maple sugar shack. 

Slopeside is four cousins from ski racing’s Cochran family which has been producing Olympic-caliber skiers, in the family’s backyard ski hill for decades.

With a love for the outdoors, four years ago the Slopeside cousins started tapping maple trees in the woods around the slopes of Cochran’s Ski Area. When they connected with Ted, the result was inevitable – all natural energy for athletes, by athletes.

Why Crowdfund?

Packaging. The substantial production minimums required to fill portable gel-packs with sterile maple syrup are remarkably costly. Put Ted and the Cochrans on the way to meeting those minimums with a pre-order today.

The UnTapped team plans to create a range of athletic products fueled with pure Maple Syrup. Help get them started.

Perks include this t-shirt from Queen City Dry Goods. Like UnTapped, it's made in Vermont. 

Get UnTapped

Do you want your performance to come from the hills of Vermont or from heavily processed corn mash? Yeah, that’s what we thought too.
