What makes ERG! different?
ERG! Bars are a minimally-processed nutritionally-dense food for active people.
Every bar starts with 25% real fruit. Then we add our own nut butters, local honey, organic rolled oats and other whole ingredients. No dairy, no rice, no soy and no gluten. Real food and no preservatives.
And they actually taste good.
Why should that be a big surprise?
Our mission is to make fresh, simple, and healthy energy bars that actually taste good and that will become your favorite.
ERG! is a small-batch, handmade fruit & nut bar in 12 great flavors that is packed with real nutrition and whole ingredients that you can actually recognize.
Together, we’re building a business that carefully manages product development and manufacturing, operates a zero-waste facility, and actively supports our community.
“I finally found ERG! which is a great product that keeps me going for some tough rides.” – Jill Kintner – ’08 Olympic Bronze, 22 National Championships
I am an endurance mountain bike racer and compete in roughly 30 events a year. I initially found out about ERG when doing the Marji Gesick race. I bought some to support the sponsor (ERG), and haven’t stopped stocking the pantry since. The ERG bars are perfect for the long races and training rides. My wife also uses them at work to get her through the nonstop, fast-paced environment all day. We are both very active and the ERG bars are with us for every adventure! – Rich Omdahl
When you sign up for the Polar Roll mailing list
It’s all about community.
While a lot of races out there are run by for-profit companies, that’s not the case for Marji Gesick, Polar Roll and The Crusher. All of our events are productions of the 906 Adventure Team, a 501(c)3 whose mission is to empower people to become the best version of themselves through outdoor adventure. We don’t have a large staff of people (two, to be exact) or significant overhead, and that enables us to donate a significant portion of race revenues in two ways:
- Since 2015, we’ve given back more than $110,000 to the trail-builders of RAMBA, NTN, Sisu Dirt Crews, WinMan and the DCNT.
- We also support youth adventure programs in three communities, investing over $35,000 this year alone in equipment, training, and gear to remove barriers for all kids. Our summer and after-school programs now have over 350 participants, and spots fill up as quickly as Marji Gesick. There is a need we’re trying to fill: to connect kids with their communities and get them off devices.
