Tailwind Endurance Fuel


Description and Reviews

All you need, all day. Really.

Tailwind mixes with water to meet all your calorie, hydration, and electrolyte needs, without upsetting your stomach or making your taste buds revolt. Just toss it in a bottle or hydration pack, shake, and GO!

Supplemental Facts
  • Complete calories, electrolytes, and hydration: Ditch the gels, chews, and pills, and go all day with just Tailwind.
  • No gut bombs: Stomach problems? You’ll love Tailwind. Unless you enjoy being doubled over, retching.
  • Tasty all day: Clean, light flavors taste better the longer you go.
  • Hydration pack love: Dissolves on contact with water and cleans up with a quick rinse. No film, aftertaste or science experiments!
  • All natural: Crystal clear with no dyes, preservatives or 4-syllable magical ingredients.


Each serving is 100 calories. For endurance workouts, mix 2-3 scoops per 24 oz of water per hour. Adjust to your personal calorie needs during training, using hunger as a guide. When it’s dialed in, you’ll feel satisfied and energetic, not hungry or full. On hot days, keep the same calories per hour, but increase water. To use in combo with other foods, reduce Tailwind intake by the calories you’re consuming elsewhere to avoid overloading the gut. For shorter workouts (<2hr), you can use less Tailwind to taste.

  1. The Only Fuel! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 27th Jun 2016)

    This is the best endurance fuel I've used. I've tried most and have found Tailwind to be the best single product available.

  2. First time marathon training 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 27th Jun 2016)

    I am absolutely thrilled with both Tailwind products I have bought. I started with raspberry buzz for Saturday morning long runs. In addition to being delicious and effective as fuel and hydration, I like that the caffeine keeps my caffeine headache at bay (drinking coffee before a run upsets my stomach, but caffeinated Tailwind never has). Once my midweek runs reached more than 6 miles, I knew I needed Tailwind without caffeine for evening runs. I bought the mandarin orange flavor and I am equally impressed. I am Tailwind ride or die for sure!

  3. Can't go wrong 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 25th Jun 2016)

    Easily tolerated, tastes great, mixes easy...what more can I say. It works! My only regret is I waited so long before I tried it. Go Tailwind go!

  4. The Best 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 23rd Jun 2016)

    I've tried them all... No need to name them. For all day rides in the mountains, Tailwind can't be beat. I can go all day on Tailwind at approximately one bottle per hour, and never bonk. :-) With hot southern California weather, I wouldn't ride without it.

  5. Integral element in my program 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 21st Jun 2016)

    Tailwind keeps me going on all my workouts! I train for triathlon 6 days a week and Tailwind is an integral part of my nutrition! I sip it while sitting in classes at school to maintain hydration between workouts and it is a main component of workouts and race days! It really keeps me going in a healthy, natural way! The Tailwind staff makes me feel special too, always a handwritten note wishing me luck in my races, and sometimes special goodies tucked in the package, like tattoos and stickers!

  6. AMAZING 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 20th Jun 2016)

    Great product- keeps me going all day long on rides and runs. Easy on the stomach!! Highly recommend it!

  7. Simply the best 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 17th Jun 2016)

    I have been using Tailwind for about 7 months now, off and on. Since I decided to run the Marine Corps Marathon in October, I knew I needed to get serious about training and for that, I needed some serious training help with the MCM being my first marathon and all. Tailwind is what I will be using forever.

  8. This is it! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 11th Jun 2016)

    As advertised, all you need, all day, no gut bombs.

  9. The Dirty Kanza 200 + Trailwind 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 8th Jun 2016)

    A few weeks ago, I was stressing about nutrition for the 2016 Dirty Kanza 200 Gravel Road Race - my first attempt! A 200 mile off road race through the Flint Hills of Kansas was enough to get me anxious but to figure out how to eat with the chance of a 20 hour ride in front of me was torture.

    Was referred to Tailwind by some great pals that swore by it. I was unsure but decided to switch my entire plan. Aced it.

    No got rot. No cramps. No other sickness! By mile 102, I had emptied my pockets of all back up food plans and was all in. Lots of hundreds did not finish the race and I am still a bit baffled that I was able to!

    Nice work guys. This stuff is great.

  10. Perfect for cycling, too! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 8th Jun 2016)

    I put a scoop in each bottle when I head out and I'm good for ~50 miles. On longer rides or in hotter weather, I'll bring a single-serve pack or a baggie with a scoop or two in it for when I refill my bottles.

    Doesn't bother my stomach, very mild taste and it keeps me hydrated. What's not to love?

  11. Great as alaways 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 7th Jun 2016)

    Cannot complain. Tailwind Works!!!

  12. Endurance Mnt Biking 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 6th Jun 2016)

    I've been using Tailwind for two years Mountain Biking, I think the product is great no stomach aches and easily to mix. I use it for all my long rides.

  13. Amazing! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 2nd Jun 2016)

    My marathon running group kept talking about this product and I felt I needed to try. I’ve always done Gu or Honeystingers but for anything over a HM, I needed 2 or 3 packets and then the upset stomach would set it. Right now, I only use Tailwind, if I am going over HM, I usually bring a few salty pretzels with me and the combination works real well. After the run I’m also not famished and I can refuel slowly as opposed to eating everything on sight. Love this product, so glad I found it. I’m trying to get my local running store to carry it.

  14. Great for ultrarunners! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 1st Jun 2016)

    I've been using tailwind for just a few weeks as I train for my first 100 miler. Why did I not know about it sooner!?! I used to carry gels, s-caps, and packs of trail mix or other small snacks on my 2-4 hour runs. Now I just fill my 2 handheld bottles each with 3 scoops of tailwind and stick 1 or 2 of the small packs (2 scoops) in my pocket. I've had no muscle cramps or upset stomach issues at all. The lemon and orange are my favorite flavors. I have 2 small concerns/issues: 1. I get clumsy and the smaller packets are easy for me to spill when I'm trying to poor into my bottle at a gas station, park water fountain, McDonald's fountain drink water or wherever else I get water when I'm out from home. I get most of it in, but have made a mess a few times - personal issue probably! 2. It can be a challenge in the Florida heat/humidity to time drinking one bottle per hour (I generally need more than the 24 ounces holding my new source of nutrition/electrolytes). On warmer days I need to carry one bottle with Tailwind and one bottle with just water so I can drink from both and pace the Tailwind appropriately. Overall, I LOVE Tailwind and plan to use it as my primary source in my big ultra in November. Also, shipping was VERY FAST, packaging was great, and I appreciate the personalization. I will be a customer as long as my body will allow me to run long distance.

  15. Great !! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 1st Jun 2016)

    Tailwind is a great product which I have been using for two years now. I would not be able to put in the high milage training or racing without it ! Thanks for keeping me fueled to perform.

  16. No yucky tummy feeling! 4 Star Review

    (Submitted on 31st May 2016)

    The main goal of trying tailwind was to avoid my common tummy issues and major nausea during long runs when fueling with Gatorade, water, chews, and food. Something always upsets my stomach. Well good news, Tailwind was a success! Not "gut bombs!" I did a 10mile trail run on the weekend and the product sat very well in my stomach. Felt strong at the end of the run. Gave it 4 stars just because the taste was okay (but I have a very picky palate) and I still "felt" hungry so I will definitely still need something small to chew on just to keep the hunger sensation away. Overall SOOOOOO happy! And this is the product I plan on using from now on! Thank you Tailwind!! Finally a product that tastes good, sits well in the tummy, and provides the nutrients needed!

  17. AMAZING STUFF 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 31st May 2016)

    Did a 48 hour endurance run in VT this weekend. Crazy hot (Florida like) temps. Couldn't eat anything solid, but Tailwind kept calories going in.

  18. No gut bomb 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 31st May 2016)

    I love this product and it is the only one I can use and not feel bloated or have a gut bomb while running all day during training or races

  19. LOVE IT! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 28th May 2016)

    I was running the Breakneck Marathon 26.2 with 10,000ft of elevation, as the race progressed i was stopping at the aide stations, everyone was saying that there was this "Tailwind" electrolyte, I've never used it, but after my electrolytes ran out i was like "heck lets try it" so i filled my front bottle with it AND OMGGGG I WAS HOOKED! Worked so great towards the end of the race energy levels were a bit lower and this product "Berry Tailwind" was amazing! Bought it a few days after the race! Highly recommend!

  20. Product lives up to its claim 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 24th May 2016)

    I have used several race fuels for endurance events - I am no pro/elite athlete. I'm just an everyday person that loves distance obstacle races. If you are going to be out there for 6-8 hours or more you need something. Problem is most gels, gu's, ect just didn't work for me. They would eventually make me nauseous. I tried carrying real food and it would get wet, crushed, and icky. I tried Tailwind on recommendation of others - and it was a god send. no bonk - and as advertised, I needed nothing else. What a relief to throw on my pack and go - no wondering when I last ate, when do I need to eat again, just sip and go. Very lightly flavored - no nausea.
    you should sponsor TJ Theis and Jon Crosby - both outstanding OCR racers that recommended your product to me

  21. All Around AMAZING! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 23rd May 2016)

    In January I started training for my first 50k. I am an athlete constantly battling nutrition and digestive issues, my biggest fear heading into the training/race. A RD friend told me about tailwind, I didn't hesitate to order my first mixed flavor package! First run with tailwind in high dessert mountains I was sold. Mid run I felt unstoppable. And post run I felt great! This was new to me zero nausea, zero digestive distress, zero dehydration! Thank you Tailwind! Finished my race...amazing experience! Cant wait for my next ultra!

  22. Simple and Functional 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 21st May 2016)

    It does what it claims to do. It doesn't upset my stomach like other colored sports drinks and I no longer have to use electrolyte pills during racing. It definitely has my vote of confidence.

  23. Awesome product 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 21st May 2016)

    Used this product at Texas 70.3 and on my hardest training days. Love the product and I'm never bonked since I've started using it. It dissolves easily in water without clumping or leaving a bad chalky taste like some other products.
    I've recommended it to others and they have had the same response. Love the product!

  24. No More Headaches 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 17th May 2016)

    I have long incurred a headache after every instance of exercising in hot conditions, despite trying varying quantities of water and electrolyte supplements from various brands. Using Tailwind, though, headaches are largely a thing of the past for me. My first day of use involved a full day of biking with constant sun exposure. I expected to feel miserable, but had no pain and even some energy left over. I am a customer for life.

  25. Perfect. 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 16th May 2016)

    Customer service was top notch. Asked a bunch of questions. Got great answers and fast. The product is exactly what I wanted.
