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 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.

While I wont name, names, I have tried the many major brands for hydration / fuel. MY activities involve cycling 100+ miles per weak, long distant running events 30-50K. I found some of the other major competitors;while providing a sodium day before pre load or day of hydration, just did not give me the needed energy to push harder/longer. I would incorporate gels/other products in addition to these hydration formula. Then I tried Tailwind as a all in one. It works! For me, no bonking,needed less and/or no other supplements/depending upon distances. I would say give it a try for a month under various conditions. Its a winner for me and hope they continue to expand there product line!! Go Long-Go All-In-With-Tailwind ( yes I just thought of this slogan for TW ) and no-I have no affiliation or ties to tailwind/or any sponsor related to tailwind

Got me through my first road marathon! I was a bit surprised at how much I like the unflavored type. Just a hint of sweetness and no mineral taste. Can't wait to try it out on my longer trail runs. I think, though, the true test will be in the hot months. We'll see. . .

After 34 years of endurance sports Tailwind is the best product I have ever used. It allows me to train harder, longer and race at a high level. I am thankful for Tailwind and the great staff.

I've recently switched to Tailwind and it is working great for me. I like not having to fuss with sticky gels, and it's super convenient to have my fuel and hydration all in one. For most training runs I only use Tailwind, and on longer endeavors I add some solid food. I'm still figuring out the best way to carry and mix for races. For my last race I carried it in concentrated form and only had to grab water at aid stations. That seems to work pretty well. Great product!

It helps me with my long distance runs

Running in Florida is miserable. I regularly experience cramps and headaches, even when slugging back straight H20. Tailwind helps put some pep in my step, and keeps me feeling strong.

I used Tailwind recently in a 50K and it lived up to it's billing. No side stitches, sore belly, nothing. Kept me going the entire day!
Thanks Tailwind for the awesome customer service and I told everyone about it!

One of my good trail running buddies told me about your product and from the first time I tried it it has become my "jet fuel". No more wondering about what to eat when,no sticky wrappers to dispose of or gunk to make you gag or get stuck in your teeth. I really like that this product mixes easily, tastes good and has no artificial coloring. I also really like the cheerful, encouraging and personalized messages that accompany the package. Thanks to all of you at Tailwind.

Quite frankly one of the best, hassle free products out there for athletes be it long distance or short. Having tried a number of different products, this is easily our number 1 nutrition for the long runs or bike rides without worrying about getting muscle cramps due to deficiencies as a result of electrolyte loss and no worries of upsetting the stomach either. Happy muscles, happy stomach, makes a happy athlete :)

Just completed my first 50k in the southern mountains of Korea. And what an experience it was~! Tailwind fueled me for the entire 50k. There were no GI distress issues and the wondrous mix of Tailwind help me avoid "hitting the wall". The berry mix tastes great and doesn't leave any sort of film in my mouth or my water bottles.
I carried 2 soft flasks with the recommended mix of Tailwind and a 24 oz water bottle with strong concentration of Tailwind. At CP 2 & 3 I simply partially filled up my soft flasks with the strong concentration and topped them off with water. This allowed me to carry less by not having to carry dry mix in little baggies.
I recommend users to fine tune the powder to water ratio in relation to the endurance of their workouts. It is incredible how quickly Tailwind dissolves.
I look forward using Tailwind Nutrition products for years to come. I recommend it to all my friends and colleagues.

My daughter and I have been using Tailwind for competitive paddle board races over the last two years. It's really helped our performance and eliminated the "bonk" for races or endurance events 1.5 to 6 hours. We've crossed Monterey Bay, Maui to Molokai and Molokai to Oahu with Tailwind for nutrition and hydration. Food supplement was greatly reduced or eliminated. Order it! You'll be impressed with its performance and how quickly its delivered to your door!

I recently heard of Tailwind Nutrition and decided to purchase some for fueling for my second marathon. It was magic! I didn't get gut rot like I normally do when fueling with other electrolyte drinks and gels. I didn't feel any signs of dehydration like I did during my first marathon. The best part was PRing by 35 minutes! Thank you, Tailwind!

Very, very happy with Tailwind! Having been a faithful user of another product for many years, I'm happier now, not to be mixing so many at once, in order to get what I want. Tailwind does it all!

My search for a trail running drink has ended. I first tried Tailwind because it was the beverage at my next 100. I loved it for training and have used only Tailwind for both training and racing ever since. Tailwind mixes up easily at any concentration, and I don't seem to get tired of the taste. Each time I clean out my reservoir I spend less and less time cleaning it. I cannot believe that just a rinse is enough, after years of finding black stuff in the hose and reservoir corners.
It's only a slight overstatement to say that Tailwind has transformed my running.

This was recommended by a friend but I went with a cheaper option but eventually bought tailwind. It is worth the money and it works as advertised.
Posted by Kevin Rauter on 29th Oct 2015
Tailwind has been a Godsend. No more bonking. Allows for consistent calorie intake without the worry of spacing a gel when lost in thought during a race. Thanks Tailwind!

I have used Tailwind for shorter races (marathons and halfs) but this was the first 100k that it was going to be my primary source of nutrition. It worked out fantastic. I had zero stomach issues and kept my calorie intake up. I mixed it weak because I don't do well with really sweet things and I was worried that at full strength I would get sick of the taste (even though it is not overly sweet tasting to begin with)
I shared part of my order with my friend who was doing the 100 miler and was using it as primary calories as well and he too had zero stomach issues and is sold on it for the long stuff. Thanks

I have a hard time using gu/gels.. They just don't sit well on my stomach. Tailwind is awesome! Great on the stomach and gives me all the fuel I need for a 50k trail race. I recently ran a 50 miler and used Tailwind and ate potatoes. Could not have made it without Tailwind!
Posted by Phil on 24th Oct 2015
Improved my half marathon by 22 minutes after beginning to use tailwind. I use a mix of berry and berry caffeinated in a handheld bottle so I would not need to stop at aide stations.
Now training for a 27 mile trail run in December and using it in a hydration pack.

For a long while, I told myself that "real food" was the answer to my stomach problems. After having my stomach shut down and leg cramping nearly every time I'd race for more than 5 hours, I started doing some research and stumbled across Tailwind. After testing it during training, I've used Tailwind as my primary/sole source of calories for the Squaw Peak 50 mile run, the Speedgoat 50k, and the Bear 100. So far I haven't had any serious stomach problems with Tailwind, and no leg cramping.
All I consumed during the Bear 100 (which lasted 25 hours) was Tailwind, and maybe 250 calories from other sources. Although other food sounded tempting at times, I stuck to the TW plan - if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Felt like I had energy the entire race. No bonks or cramping.
I mainly use Orange and Berry, which I think taste the best. I don't really train with it anymore since I've confirmed it works and I don't want to be sick of it on a long race day. I wish that it would be easier to drink it at higher concentrates - I can't stomach more than 10 cal per ounce (200 cal per 20 ounce bottle). At this concentration, I was peeing every 30 minutes during the cooler night hours of the Bear 100, so I'd like to maintain the same calorie intake while reducing the amount of liquids. But I really can't complain - it works as advertised, and I'd recommend it to anyone who's had stomach and cramping problems. Unless I really want to beat them.

I had talked to other parents on our team and they mentioned that their son's were taking this product about a half hour to an hour before practice or a meet.
It was great to hear that with the heat and humidity of Nebraska that during practice his gut wasn't in pain and during his district meet with tons of hills he didn't have the gut issue for the first time.
Now we hope that tailwind along with tons of hours of training during summer and summer camp running up by Bolder will be what they need to win as a team at the state team this Friday.
That is right both of the boys and girls teams will be going to state for the first time in school history.

I used to fuel poorly and crash every race. Since using Tailwind up to 50K and 40 miles, that no longer happens. I only hit low points for other reasons, soreness, frustrating trail conditions or other issues.

I used Tailwind to run the Chicago Marathon this year - and all I can say is that it's incredible. I keeps me fueled and hydrated on every training run and during the big race. I had no doubt about using it and I will continue to be a loyal customer! Such an amazing find!! Never have gut rot or stomach aches... It's unreal!
Posted by Unknown on 14th Oct 2015
I love this product! I do not experience any gut bombs or bonking with Tailwind. This is the only product I have found that really works for me.
Posted by Brantley on 11th Oct 2015
I have been using Tailwind for about a year, but only for distances up to 20 miles. Well yesterday I completed my first 50K - Pilot Mountain to Hanging Rock, and Tailwind was my only fueling source all day! I have been dialing in the right ratio for me over the last few months of training and I knew this was going to be the only thing I needed all day and it was. I never felt like I was even close to a lack of energy or even close to bonking. I did have a couple of bites of some fig bars and pretzels while on the trail, but later in the race the only thing I kept taking was my Tailwind. After yesterday I am a TRUE believer in this stuff and will tell all i know about this stuff! Thanks Tailwind for such a great product.
