Chargel Partners with NICA

Chargel, a one-of-a-kind athletic gel drink designed to meet the unique energy needs of cyclists, has announced its partnership with the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA).

NICA achieves this mission by providing community-based cycling programs that embody its core values of fun, inclusivity, equity, respect, and community. More than 25,500 student athletes, 14,400 coaches, and over 11,000 volunteers are a part of NICA in 30 states across the country.

“NICA is reinventing youth sports by engaging families and leading with inclusivity where there are no tryouts, no benches and everyone rides together,” said Amanda Carey, NICA President. “We are very excited to partner with Chargel, as they share our belief that every youth should be empowered to be part of a thriving and engaged cycling community.”

Through this partnership, NICA student-athletes across the organization will have the chance to sample Chargel. Each serving of Chargel offers a pocket-sized boost of energy without any caffeine, artificial sweeteners, or high fructose corn syrup.

“NICA is an incredible organization making a positive difference in kids’ lives across the US through cycling and building a sense of community,” said Teruhiro Kawabe, Chief Representative for the USA and President/CEO of Morinaga America, Inc., the U.S. sales company of Chargel. “We’re thrilled to help support their mission and fuel young riders with our caffeine-free gel drinks no matter where their cycling adventures take them.”


All Chargel gel drinks are also plant-based, gluten-free, and free of the nine major allergens. They can be purchased online at in packs of six pouches, with an SRP of $20.94 or individually for $3.49 per pouch.
