Topical Edge is the first and only sports 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. Born from cycling, Topical Edge is now available as a lactic acid buffer across all sports. Apply Topical Edge lotion before your workout for performance or post-workout for recovery.Get Your Edge
“I train 3 hours a day and constantly battle to stay fresh while pushing my body to be competitive. Becoming a great Crossfitter requires building a high lactate threshold and staying in an aerobic state as long as possible. Topical Edge allows me to achieve both of these important factors.
With the help of Topical Edge, I recently PR’ed both my 1000m and 2000m row times. Topical Edge also helped me recover from a very intense overhead gymnastic session which included maximum efforts of handstand walking, pull-ups and muscle-ups. I am very excited to see how Topical Edge can help continue to elevate my game."

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
Every batch of Topical Edge is tested for banned substances under the Informed-Sport program at an accredited lab to provide the highest level of assurance that they are safer for athletes to use.
When our founder, a doctor and a competitive triathlete, was laying out his cycling gear before a tough training ride, an idea was born. As the leader of a biotech company, he believed that he could suffer less in training and racing by using our patented skin absorption technology to supplement his muscles with bicarbonate. He created Topical Edge with input from professional cyclists, giving all athletes a way to suffer better. This community branched out, using Topical Edge across their favorite pain-inducing sports. While cycling is still at our core, we are happy to give all athletes the benefit of enjoying their sport more, training harder, and recovering faster with Topical Edge.
