Controlled Labs White Pipes – Priming the Pump!

Controlled Labs White Pipes

White Pipes replaces White Pump as Controlled Labs non-stim pump enhancing pre workout option. Also a great addition to White Rapids.

Controlled Labs surprised many of their fans earlier this year when the decided to replace the much beloved White Flood Reborn with an all new pre workout, White Rapids. Since its release, White Rapids has been received incredibly well by the fitness community at large, for our review click here.

CL has continued the the trend by now replacing their non-stim pre workout White Pump. The new offering has be re-named White Pipes, but there’s been much more that just a name change for the new product.

White Pipes Ingredients

White Pipes follows suit with White Rapids and has a completely transparent label (just like White Pump) so you know just how much pump-enhancement you’re getting from each of the ingredients. White Pipes borrows a few ingredients from White Rapids and brings a new one to the party as well:

  • Citrulline Malate (3g)

    Controlled Labs White Pipes Ingredients

    White Pipes uses a combination of ingredients that not only enhances pumps in a variety of ways, but also increases your endurance and focus.

    Citrulline Malate gets the pump party started with White Pipes. You’ll also see this ingredient in White Rapids as well.

    White Pump used L-Norvaline as their main pump aid, but CL has gone and included an ingredient that is better absorbed by the body which will provide a bigger boost in nitric oxide (NO) as compared to other NO boosters.[1]

    Citrulline malate has one more trick up its sleeve though. In addition to enhancing pumps, CM buffers lactic acid accumulation which will naturally increase your endurance and ATP production.[2,3,4,5]

    This will help with energy production and overall workout performance. To see the full benefit of CM, you’ll need to use 2 scoops of White Pipes or 1 scoop of White Pipes and 1 scoop of White Rapids (more on stacking later!)

  • Taurine (1g)

    Our second ingredient is also our one ingredient not borrowed from White Rapids. Taurine is a conditionally essential amino acid with large amounts stored in the muscles, heart, and brain. Usually, there are ample amounts in the body to meet its requirements; however, during intense physical activity, it can’t produce enough to meet demand.

    Taurine, like CM, is a multi-faceted ingredient bringing a number of benefits to your workout. First, it acts as a cell volumizer, shuttling water and nutrients into the muscle[6], which will help foster “water-based” pumps.

    More recent research demonstrates that taurine may even reduce the symptoms of DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness).[7] Finally, taurine enhances mental focus due to the fact that large reserves of the amino acid are found in the brain.[8] Not only does White Pipes give you a better, badder pump, it also speeds recovery enabling you to get back in the gym faster with less soreness!

  • HydroMax™ (1g)

    Controlled Labs White Pipes Benefits

    White Pipes brings pumps, focus, endurance, and improved recovery all with no stims or carbs!

    Keeping with bringing you only the best in terms of hydration and pumps, White Pipes uses HydroMax™. This is a highly concentrated form of powdered glycerol (65%).[9] Typically, other pump pre’s will use glycerol monostearate (GMS), which is “ok” but, it only 25% glycerol and 75% saturated fat!

    HydroMax™ has replaced GMS in most of the newer pre workouts for its superiority in driving water into muscle cells. Much like taurine, you’ll experience increased cell volumization and vascularity. A side benefit of the is higher endurance thanks to glycerols ability to induce “hyper-hydration.”[10.11]

  • Agmatine Sulfate (500mg)

    Rounding out White Pipe profile is another proven pump booster in Agmatine. This high-powered neurotransmitter operates differently than the other pump aids. Rather than directly increase N.O. production in the body, it prevents the breakdown of L-Arginine in the body.[12] This fosters a longer-lasting, more intense pump for your workouts and the ensuing hours.

    As with all of the other ingredients in White Pipes, Agmatine isn’t a one-trick pony. It also improves cognition and enhances memory formation.[13] Couple with the focus-boosting power of taurine, you’ll experience a level of focus not seem in many other non-stim, “pump” centered pre workouts!

Flavors Available

White Pipes comes in two flavors: Juicy Watermelon and Tropical Pineapple. Both are available in 50 serving tubs, while the Juicy Watermelon flavor also has an option of a 10 serving tub.


Controlled Labs Stacking Guide

CL provides a handy guide on how to stack any and all of their products depending on your particular goals! Something we wish more companies did…

The great thing about Controlled Labs family of products is the versatility when it comes to stacking. They even provide a guide on how to stack their family of products based on your demands and workout goals, shown to the right.

White Pipes works perfectly well on its on when dosed at 2 scoops, should you want a non-stim pre workout option. If you’re sensitive to caffeine and unable to handle the 2 scoops that is White Rapids, stack 1 scoop of White Pipes with 1 scoop of White Pump and you’ll have great energy to go with other worldly pumps!

Stim or non-stim, White Pipes is versatile enough to suit any of your pre workout needs.


White Pipes is a great step up from its predecessor. The revamped profile replaces some of the less effective ingredients (L-Norvaline) with proven ergogenics that will enhance your pumps, focus, and endurance.

White Pipes is already out, so be sure to check the widget below for the best price and stay tuned to PricePlow for an upcoming review of White Pipes – we have a feeling there will be a lot more price drops from the initial $35 range it was launched at.
