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. Easy to prepare and easier on the gut 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 30th Apr 2016)

    I was looking for a kinder and gentler endurance fuel and Tailwind fits the bill. Was't sure until I tried it out on my first 50 miler and now it's my go to fuel. No more searching and more running.

  2. No Comparison 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 29th Apr 2016)

    I have been through 6 bags of the berry flavor and still love it! I had some stomach issues with other products, top brands in fact, but Tailwind is just easy. Try it if you have never and see for yourself. You won't be disappointed.

  3. Naked isn't for me 3 Star Review

    (Submitted on 26th Apr 2016)

    I drink mostly water. I have a hard time with the taste of sports drinks,gels, etc. I ran a 30 mile ultra this spring-not my first but as a training run in prep for a 100 mile race in the fall after a hiatus from ultras. During that race I experienced nausea for about half the race. I had fueled with water and regular food. I decided to try Tailwind on my next run-15 miles. I didn't experience nausea. The taste however was like stale water-just an odd not fresh taste that made me not want to drink. I don't think I could have handled drinking it for an extended time. I'm not sure it was a long enough run to decide if it was good as fuel. I just know I read reviews looking for something that can fuel and hydrate that has no taste. So far I've come up short.

  4. My Dr recommended Tailwind & Ilove it! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 20th Apr 2016)

    Best endurance fuel I've ever used! I love the flavor choices. I use Tailwind daily and love how light and easy it is on my stomach. I suggest just trying it once & you'll be hooked!

  5. Sweet nectar from the teet of life 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 20th Apr 2016)

    Tailwind has become my favorite calorie choice. I really like being able to drink calories and not have to think about gels. And on shorter runs when the pace gets raging I can drink tailwind without any gut problems. The naked flavor is my favorite , just enough sweetness to get by. Amen to the creators of this sweet nectar!

  6. Steady Nurtrition with No Crash 4 Star Review

    (Submitted on 19th Apr 2016)

    A friend recommended I try Tailwind and I love it! It provides steady nutrition on as I run and doesn't drop me afterward, like the energy chews used to do. Also no gut bomb :) I give it two thumbs and two big monkey toes up!

  7. Eliminates the cramps 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 15th Apr 2016)

    I've had loads of trouble pushing too hard late in a race and having leg muscle spasms that cramp me up. Tailwind really helps cut those out. A great product. I'm a big fan of the barely there taste. Not looking for huge syrupy flavor when I've been running for hours.

  8. Run long with no hunger 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 10th Apr 2016)

    I used only tailwind as my hydration and ate only orange slices at aid stations for a 17 mile race, and I felt great! Before I would use shot-blocks, some fruit, and water/gatorade but would always get hungry and sort crash on energy at the end of a long run. I highly recommend this product.

  9. Helped with my first marathon 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 6th Apr 2016)

    I heard about this product from a running friend. I have issues with products and the "gut bomb". She recommended this product for that. I tried it and used it for my first marathon training. It helped tremendously. I just got into the lottery for a second marathon this year. I plan on using it again. I also use it for all my runs over 5 miles. I never feel exhausted and can usually push even farther than I planned to run most days. Thank you!!!

  10. Sponsored by another company 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 5th Apr 2016)

    I'm sponsored by another supplement company that doesn't make an all-in-one product and I needed to find a way to simplify my nutrition, salt, and hydration when I run across the Grand Canyon and back. While I love the products that I get for free, I'll happily pay to use Tailwind on my upcoming R2R2R run; it simply is that good. I love the lemon flavor, and look forward to trying more flavors in the future! Thank you!

  11. Berry Flavor 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 5th Apr 2016)

    Before getting a big bag I ordered a sample size of each flavor. I was really fond of the berry flavor and ordered a medium bag of it. This stuff is great! It is the perfect fuel for mountain bike racing. I also use it during the bike leg for triathlons. I love not having to deal with gels or trying to consume solid foods, Tailwind is all that you need!

  12. Best sports hydration ever! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 4th Apr 2016)

    I started using this during triathlon trainings and races based on a recommendation from my coach. I sweat quite a bit and so keeping my electrolyte levels in check has been a big challenge for me. It has by far the best product I've used.


  13. Great race, training fuel 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 4th Apr 2016)

    A couple endurance athlete friends recommended Tailwind when I was having problems with my gut during races- the fuel I was using couldn't handle the intensity of race days, and in retrospect I was having a hard time keeping my glycogen levels topped off; I would feel light-headed despite having plenty of calories on-board. I use tailwind for about half of my calories for endurance training and races. My gut and energy level feel great, and I've been able to sustain intensity during 12 hour and 50 mile races. My favorite flavor is lemon- it's not too sweet and the lemon flavor is minimal.

  14. Can't believe I didn't need a gel 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 1st Apr 2016)

    Thank you Tailwind! I'm hypoglycemic and formerly needed a gel every 30 minutes and a bar every 1.5 hours for any activity over an hour. I have done a few 2 hour plus rides on extremely hilly terrain and only needed your fuel! Thank you so much for freeing me from the gel every 30 minutes!!!!

  15. Berry Amazing! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 1st Apr 2016)

    I have been using Tailwind for a while now and love it. Total game changer. I have a 50 mile race coming up tomorrow and I wouldn't run without it. This last order I purchased the Berry flavor for the first time and it's delicious, my new favorite!

  16. Awesome! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 31st Mar 2016)

    I was given a gift of several stick-packs to try and was instantly hooked on the product. Proceeded to place an order to keep me fueled on my training runs and upcoming ultras

  17. Trust is high in this product 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 30th Mar 2016)

    Once I have taken Tailwind I have never had a reason not to trust it will do me well. I enjoy the flavor and simplicity of it.

  18. Tailwind is bad ass! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 30th Mar 2016)

    I started late in life doing the triathlon thing.
    Last December when I turned 50 I decided to make the big "5O" the best year of my life.
    I did 7 triathlons last year including 70.3 and 140.6 Ironman and finishing all.
    Some were not so pretty of an ending.
    I suffered with leg cramps that would force me to slow my swim down, get off of the bike and lay in the ditch, and run walk, mostly walk.
    For the past 3 month I've been using tailwind as a substation to gu, and power aid during my training.
    I haven't had a cramp or lack of energy since I started with tailwind.
    I have my first triathlon of the year on April 10th in Florida. The 70.3 ironman.
    This has been a game changer and I'm looking forward to the benefits of being able to train harder and longer cramp free.
    Thank you!

  19. Love it ! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 29th Mar 2016)

    This is the best fuel I have found for any long distance bike and running events! It keeps me going and I don't need to take other garbage .

  20. The Real Deal 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 28th Mar 2016)

    I cannot say how much I like Tailwind Nutrition!

    I bought a bag (50 servings) of Tailwind, but I was still skeptical. I went on 5 six-hour plus runs where I used Tailwind as my only source of nutrition. I felt great the entire time and loved the taste. The product didn't leave a bad taste in my mouth like many of the other products that I tried.

    My favorite thing about Tailwind besides their product, is their amazing personal service. I received a handwritten note and a sticker with every bag I ordered. This put a smile on my face and showed how much they care about their customers. Using Tailwind was the best decision I every made for my ultrarunning career!

  21. Works as promised 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 28th Mar 2016)

    A friend introduced me to Tailwind after I suffered gut bombs from gels and another product. I've been using Tailwind for 2 years and have not looked back. Never had a single GI issue, even when I double the recommended concentration for hard 30-mile MTB races. Also, I had cramped in a couple of races prior to using Tailwind. I've not had a single cramp since I started using Tailwind, not even on the 10,000 ft ascent up Mt. Haleakala on Maui!

  22. Great fuel 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 26th Mar 2016)

    Way better than Gatorade and I've been and life long fan.
    Better electrolyte composition and more energy to keep you going on (and on)

  23. Magic 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 26th Mar 2016)

    This stuff is incredible. Total magic! I was skeptical at first, but after a few long runs with nothing but Tailwind mixed with water, I am totally impressed at how much better I feel throughout my run. It is so wonderful to not have to hassle with gels, etc.

  24. Splitboarding and trail running 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 22nd Mar 2016)

    I split board in the winter and trail run in the summer. I never leave home with out it. Just spent 4 days in the Sawtooths and Tailwind saved me from bonking on my all day adventures.

  25. Still loving it after 1 year of use! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 20th Mar 2016)

    I have used this for a year now, and love it. Did 3 50k's, 2 40 milers, and a 100 miler, without any stomach or fueling issues. The flavors are great, not overpowering, just enough to give you a nice flavor that does not grow old after hours of use.
