Topical Edge is the first and only athletic performance lotion that is clinically proven to reduce lactic acid buildup, allowing you to push yourself harder for longer, with less muscle burn, and recover faster. Topical Edge is powered by the muscle buffering ability of sodium bicarbonate. Apply Topical Edge lotion before activity for performance or post-workout for recovery.Get Your EDGE
During strenuous exercise, your muscles need more oxygen and energy than your body can deliver, leading to the production of lactic acid. Your body neutralizes lactic acid with its own naturally occurring bicarbonate until its supply runs out. Lactic acid then builds up which reduces energy generation, muscle contraction, and oxygen transport from the lungs—triggering pain and limiting your athletic performance.
Topical Edge combats lactic acid buildup. When you apply Topical Edge to your muscles pre-workout, our patented delivery technology adds to your body’s natural bicarbonate pool, reducing lactic acid buildup and the muscle fatigue and pain that come with it. Apply post-workout for even fresher feeling muscles.
In a randomized controlled trial, independent investigators found that Topical Edge reduced post-exercise blood lactate by more than 15% and correlated with improved velocity, power, and perceived exertion. Learn more

I use Topical Edge both for riding and recovery purposes. Used before a ride I notice it helps me feel better at the beginning of the ride and delays the effects of lactic acid building up in the ride. Using Topical Edge after a ride or before bed also seems to aid recovery sensations and helps my legs feel fresher the next morning.

I used Topical Edge lotion quite a bit last year and it's amazing. I originally wanted to keep it quiet and not let anyone in the on the secret but it's just too good to keep under wraps. For anyone familiar with the benefits of lactic buffers, it delivers all the benefits without the downsides.

I’ve started to incorporate Topical Edge into my hard interval training sessions and within two weeks I’ve noticed a 10 watt bump in my functional threshold power and can push harder until the legs fatigue. Thanks for the power boost guys! Can’t wait to see how high my numbers can go.
