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!
Each scoop 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.

My sister recommended Tailwind to me after I began running. I have a sensitive stomach and it is extremely challenging to find endurance fuels that do not contain ingredients that upset it. Also, I was looking for a liquid fuel because, frankly, chewing on solid supplements after hours of running is gross. I was skeptical when my sister told me this seemingly simple formula got her through long races, but it really works! And more importantly, it works for my stomach! I cannot tell you what a relief it is to find a product that actually fits within my dietary guidelines and not only gets me through a race, but helps me excel! And with no stomach upset afterwards! This stuff works so much better than any other fuel I have tried, and it really does taste good! I am still amazed how good I feel after running an entire half marathon on just Tailwind! I give it 4 stars only because I do better when I use Enduralytes in combination with it. But I love this stuff and having a happy tummy during training and races is priceless. Thank you, thank you, Tailwind!!!

I used this for my last 100 mile race and I will admit I was alittle skeptical that I could use this for the whole race as my main source of fuel. I had used it on a few training runs and never had any problems with it so I figured it was worth giving it a shot for the 100 miler and then if it didn't work I could switch to something else. I ran the Pine to Palm 100 which this year was a very hot race the mid day temps were around 95 degrees. I used Tailwind the whole race beginning to end and never had to take a salt tab, gel or anything else all day. I ate some food from the aid station tables but Tailwind was the secret to my success, I completed the race in 28 hours and 45 minutes. I love this product so much I ordered two more bags because it will be my main source of fuel for all my races from now on! Thanks, Tailwind!

I received the new formula with caffeine and was lucky enough to try it out on a 40 mile race, It gives you the energy you need to keep moving. I would alternate the orginal with the new and that worked out perfect. Didn't feel bad,and felt like I could go further.
Thanks Tailwind! Believe me when I say everyone who try's this product will love it.

Used tailwind for the north face 50km in San Francisco. Aside from a few bites of a PB&J sandwich, I ran the whole thing with just tailwind in my bladder and felt strong the whole way through

I can fill my 3 liter Camelbak with a cup of Tailwind and water and go 60 miles. If I am doing a century, I will bring a cup of Tailwind in a baggie, and I will refill my Camelbak . I have not had any bonking issues or cramps using Tailwind. I used to use Hammer products, but not with as much success or simplicity as Tailwind. Great product!!

I tested your product on trails where I know from experience I would have needed to stop for food or gels several times. The rides took place in old mining pits located in steamy Florida where the price of admission is buckets of sweat. Throughout the duration of each ride I felt like my gas tank was filled with premium fuel. I stood up and hammered sections where I normally stay seated. I found myself looking for places to catch more air instead of glancing at my watch to see if it was time to slam another gel. After four rides, I set a personal best for continuous time in the saddle. With no food. At age 45.
Inspired, I took your product surfing. Being out on the water for extended periods takes a toll with no access to food or water. So I rigged up an old Camelbak and paddled out on a good day where I knew I would be surfing for at least two hours. Usually at the end of these sessions, the only thing I want is to head back to the truck to replenish my depleted stores. Not this time. There was no sense of urgency and I felt like I could just hang out on the beach talking with friends and reliving the rides, instead of high-tailing it to my cooler.
Thanks for developing a product that makes the sports I love even more enjoyable. I look forward to many adventures with your revolutionary product.

This product produced better than expected. I was able to manage my nutrition and output more efficiently.

Just started on the Endurance fuel recently and I have noticed better energy during runs and rides. Will be interested to see how it works for longer events. Thanks.

I am a runner who was recently turned onto this product by a friend who runs ultra marathons. I've struggled over the past 3 years to find a fueling strategy that provided me with enough energy and did not upset my stomach. I could not tolerate gels at all. I had moderate success with chews, however, they bothered my acid reflux and if I used too many during a long run or race, my stomach would feel funny all day.
I am not a fast runner at all, but I love to run. I started running 3 years ago and have completed several 5k's, 6 half marathons and 2 full marathons. About 2.5 months ago, I ordered some Tailwind and began using it to fuel my long runs. The stuff was amazing! I would just load up my Camelbak and go! I rarely needed any chews or anything, mainly just if I felt like eating something solid or if I needed a little extra energy when I didn't mix my Tailwind strong enough. I was using a smaller Camelbak for a while, then I purchased the Marathoner one with the two front pockets! It was perfect! I began mixing my tailwind stronger and carried a small bottle of water in my front pocket for when I just felt like sipping a little water. Worked like a charm!
I ran a marathon last week. I had so much energy during the race! I had so much fun! I literally never hit the dreaded wall. The only time I because a little bit tired was around mile 22 when my Camelbak was empty. I had brought some chews in case of an emergency like that! I finished the race strong and smiling, could have kept going! I was so well fueled up the entire race! A friend afterwards asked me what was the secret for avoiding the wall. I told her the answer was very simple- Tailwind!

I just started using the Endurance Fuel and have felt good with no other supplementation during a 3 hour training session- either a 3 hr run or a 2 hour bike followed by a 1 hour run... I will be increasing the training hours from January to June as I will be competing in an Ironman the end of June- (my third one) so am optimistic that I can simplify nutrition during training and on race day by using your product. I will keep you posted!

This is a great product. I was able to ride the last 50 miles without a stop. I never felt hungry or weak. I've been riding less than two years and I have tried several products this stuff is the bomb. I had to use Hammer Endurolytes to prevent cramps, however all is good. I told my friend in Arizona about this stuff yesterday, he is excited to give it a try. I gave my co-worker a sample that was sent to me in my order, he just loves the stuff. Great product. Thanks Dylan, Blake, and Jerry for the cards.

I used Tailwind nutrition for my latest triathlon Iron Man Austin, TX 70.3.
I felt great through the whole race. I highly recommend Tailwind.

Recently did a 48 Mile MTB ride with a friend. He kept asking me if I needed any food as he was downing gu and energy bars. I just told him, "Nope, I have Tailwinds in my Camelbac". I was on the bike for about 4 hours and was not hungry and did not cramp.
So happy I discovered Tailwinds at the Whiskey off-road. With Tailwinds, I don't have to buy any other product for my rides.

I would love to be able to partake in the food fest that is provided at ultras but my stomach says no. So, I stick with fluids and Tailwind has provided the best solution for me. I keep plain H2O in my pack and fuel in a bottle. I feel like separating them allows for better monitoring of my calories because I never gauge how much water I will take from my pack over the course of hours. I appreciate the organic also. Keep it coming.

When it comes down to endurance training and as the hours begin to build up I came to a quick realization that something in my nutrition had to be fixed. Long hot days were hard to overcome until Tailwind came along. Simple, clean and easy to mix took all the science of what becomes unthinkable after a long work out. The taste is great and you can mix match and dial down on taste mixing it with the Naked & unflavored bag. this product is as organic and as good as the team behind the curtain. Than you Jeff for all the help and the team that has allowed me to push as hard as long and as fast as I have ever been able to.

I'm planning to use ONLY Tailwind as my liquids on an upcoming 100 mi. trail run. That's how much I believe and trust in this product. I was introduced via a fellow trail runner here in TX (thanks, Alex) and have shared my fortune with others who also are now believer/users. Great product! Thanks to the Tailwind gang!

So glad I have found this product. Very easy on my stomach and the flavors are really good.

I've been running my longest races to date powered solely on Tailwind. I've been able to run endurance races on consecutive weekends for the first time and I felt that I was properly supplied the whole time. Any eating I did was just to comfort my mind that I was eating. It also felt nice to just grab water at an aide station and move on, avoiding most of the frenzy.
I really appreciate the product.
Posted by Alberto G on 16th Oct 2013
I find Tailwind easily digestible and gives me hydration as well as energy while running. Highly recommended!
Posted by Tom Gardner on 15th Oct 2013
Your product, Endurance Fuel, was recently purchased and used. The order arrived ahead of schedule with an extra flavor sample and a personalized note. The formula itself was very "light" in taste with drinkability about like plain water. My first real use was on the Grizzly Century that featured 8,000 ft. of climbing. Your product dramaticly reduced cramping and was very palitable as the hours went on. This event offered another energy powder as part of the registration, and by comparison it was much less tolerable. I, a 66 year old non climber, was nearly the first rider to the highest point of the course. These events are successful if one is able to manage lots of equipment and pacing statagies. Endurance Fuel is the nutritional piece of my future plan . Thanks

Since I've discovered Tailwind, I've had nothing but great results. This is my go to hydration/nutrition solution for any run longer than 10 miles. I've used it at 2 50Ks and 6 marathons in 2013. Simply great stuff. If you want to read more about it visit http://japodrunner.blogspot.com

I just completed my first 100 miler at the Heartland Spirit of the Prairie race. I got first place in 17:55:31. I owe a lot of that success to Tailwind. I did not eat a single thing the entire day. I did have a cup of ginger ale, a cup of coke and 2 5 hour energy for some caffeine, other than that I stuck very close to 20 ounces of water and 2 scoops of Tailwind per hour. Using Tailwind greatly simplified my aid station stops and also allowed me to never enter an aid station tent. I filled with water and dumped in pre-measured Tailwind packets and was on my way. At crew accessible aid stations, my wife just dumped in pre-mixed Tailwind and I was off (except for a couple times to fix blisters :)
I had constant energy the entire day and never bonked. My fastest 6 mile section was the last 6 miles. It was an awesome experience and I want to thank you guys for making such a great product - IT WORKED. As you guys say, it's all I needed, all day, REALLY. I also love the customer service - you guys run an awesome company.

What more is there to say It's great.

I suffer from IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) and tailwind is the only thing that I can use when running that doesn't upset my GI tract. I love the berry flavor, and am happy to recommend it to all my friends. Thank you TailWind for an amazing product!

I've been using this product for a few months now, and I am very happy with the results. No matter how much I don't feel like eating anything on a long run, I can alway drink Tailwind and get some calories and electrolytes. Definitely keeps my energy up. However, I find that about 2 tablespoons (1 scoop) per 16-20 oz is about as strong a concentration as I like. Much more than that tastes too sweet, is quite sticky, and actually makes me more thirsty. So I stick to 1 scoop per small water bottle even on runs lasting several hours, and supplement calories with a couple nut bars. I think Tailwind excels most in hotter weather, since by drinking more fluid you can obtain most if not all necessary calories from tailwind rather than solid food, even with the lower concentration. I especially appreciate the natural ingredients, too.
