The latest version of Xdurance is Rockstar's attempt to compete with Bang Energy Drink which has exploded in popularity.
Note: Now Xdurance also comes in a 24 fl oz can with 400 mg of caffeine per can! Be extra careful with this one.

The following review was for the original Xdurance not the 300 mg/can version.
A Blueberry Marathon in My Mouth
Although XDurance is blueberry, pomegranate, and acai flavored, the dominant flavor is definitely blueberry. It has a light flavor and is moderately sweet with a mild artificial sweetener aftertaste. It was nice to see no artificial flavors or colors in Rockstar XDurance. Vegetable juice makes it red instead of the infamous red dye.
Rockstar XDurance Delivers
Not only have they upped the amino acid profile, but also, the caffeine has been increased. At 300mg/can, this is 140mg more than a traditional Rockstar. It's like drinking almost 4Red Bulls. Rockstar Xdurance definitely increased my alertness, but I thought the flavor was a little off since I'm not a big blueberry drink fan.
People who aren't used to larger amounts of caffeine or who are unsure of their sensitivity level to caffeine should avoid this drink. It can cause problems for some people.
Here's what one consumer reported to us:
I would like to share my story about Rockstar XDurance. I had been drinking Monsters for the past 3 days and they seemed to have no effect. I had previously tried one of the XDurance before and thought I was okay to have another. I was hyperfocused for the remainder of that day and then chest pain set in. I have heard that a majority of heart attacks happen at night but figured it was a panic attack. Then my jaw felt as if it were pounding, my head started throbbing and my shoulder hurt. I panicked. My heart rate when the paramedics came was 136. As the drink wore off, it went down, but I genuinely thought I was having a heart attack. I didn't go to the hospital, but the lesson I learned that night will keep me from ever touching another energy drink. I think this drink crosses the line from "extreme" to dangerous.
