Fuel the bike. Fuel the pilot. How our love of Motocross, Boxing and Science lead to the creation of Octane

As a Director of Pulse Racing Products Jim Peters has always been a keen Motocross rider and more recently mountain bike racing too.

He has also dipped his toe into the sport of boxing as well as competing in trail marathons and obstacle races such as the tough Mudder series. A qualified Personal trainer and Sports Nutritionist he has always had an interest in human performance as well as the obvious performance parts for Motocross.

Through his love of Boxing he became friends with Joel "Yaaka" McIntyre a professional boxer and current British Title Contender with whom he shares his passion for physical and nutritional performance. Joel introduced him to a friend and Sponsor Dr Stephen Compton a Pharmacologist and the man behind DSC Nutrition Labs. Between them they have developed "Octane" a Pre Performance Workout supplement that not only works to fuel the body but also contains the vital nutrients for repairing the body after the stress of a hard workout. (Exercise in itself is a stressor, it is after all the recovery period that helps us improve stamina, strength, speed etc) Another major feature of Octane and specific to the sport of Motocross/Enduro is the lactic acid buffer which is included in the formula to reduce the dreaded Arm Pump.

What makes OCTANE superior to other pre-workout products?

OCTANE is a hard hitting, scientifically designed pre Race/workout supplement that makes every race/workout an explosive, energy fuelled session Specially formulated for Pulse Racing Products by DSC Nutrition Labs and their PhD scientist Dr Stephen Compton, OCTANE combines full potency dosages of research proven ingredients so as to deliver Serious Energy levels, Focus and Drive!

Containing scientifically tested ingredients in high-potency dosages, OCTANE was formulated after evaluating and considering every possible natural component that has been studied to enhance physical performance. OCTANE contains large dosages of Creatine to help maximize strength. BCAA's for anti-catabolic support. High-dose, flavanol-rich, theobroma cocao to support muscular blood flow.

We use a cocktail of thermogenics to get you pushing harder. Firstly, we use Green Tea Extract, that is highly purified and standardised to 45% EGCG (the most potent active ingredient in green tea). Then we use our unique Fast and Slow Time Release Caffeine Delivery System which ensures you don't get the usual caffeine crash experienced by other pre workouts. Finally, bicarbonate electrolytes are added to resist the energy-sapping effects of lactic acid (lactate). OCTANE - the ultimate performance enhancer and with no caffeine crash!

We believe this to be the most scientifically advanced and effective pre race/workout supplement available on the market today.
