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.

I was looking for nutrition which wasn't super sugary like some of the gels on the market, which directly contributed to me feeling nauseous on some of the longer runs. Tailwind was the super fuel I was looking for. Sustained energy with a great taste. Thank you!

Tailwind doesn't upset my stomach or weigh me down. It also isn't carbonated, so it doesn't create pressure inside my water bottle to the point where it starts to leak, like other products. I can run for hours on only Tailwind and I don't feel deprived of anything.

I've been running quite a few marathons & ultras for several years now, so I've tried a lot of fueling/hydration products. Tailwind is BY FAR the best. For fueling, it keeps me more full and energetic than any solid food or gel I've tried. For hydrating, it keeps me hydrated and my electrolytes balanced better than any sports drink, tab, or cap I've tried. Not only that, but it does them both in one great tasting, easy to mix & use place. Simpler than any other, better than any other. What more could you ask for?

I am a big guy, but I do go out and run. I also like to eat, I especially get hungry when I lift and run late at night. In the past I would munch down on chips, cookies, or whatever I have in my fridge. Now I have some Tailwind in the morning with my morning bottle of water, when I go out for runs, and when I am having those midnight hunger pains.

I used tailwind on a 50K last weekend that had 7000 feet of climb in it and some very technical trail. I carried it with me and they helped me mix it at the aid stations. It got warm during the run. I never felt hungry or felt a blood sugar low. I will use it this summer and for my 100 miler this fall. I am 61 and have been running for 50 years. I appreciate the opportunity talk about this product.

Tastes great, no stomach upset, and provides all the energy and fuel needed without the crash. Highly recommend!

I ride endurance rides on remote gravel trails and have dealt with GI issues for years. Last year on a long unsupported ride we stopped in towns that where supposed to have places to grab some food. Unfortunately those places closed and eventually we ran out of food, fuel, and energy. This year I searched for an easy way to carry a high energy fuel that wouldn't bother my stomach. Trailwind has been the answer! I take two bottles with me and back up servings in a plastic bag. In a small package I can carry enough to keep me fueled and grinding for the entire ride.

Since I started using this outstanding product, I’ve gained a second wind. My times and recovery, as a result, are much quicker.

For years I was that guy feeling awful during races and always struggling with what to eat and drink. I had heard about tailwind and was desperate for something to work.. This stuff works. I have used it this past year for all my long training runs and my first 50 mile race. It has given me confidence in my training and my fueling. I don't have to worry about whether I will "get lucky" with my stomach during a race. I know that I will have that aspect of my race nailed down and I can just worry about running fast and having fun.

Just tried Tailwind for the first time and loved it. Used it on a 23 mile training run just to see how it worked for me. Used the Mandarin Orange flavor which was not sweet at all. No after taste. Best part was how well my stomach handled it after 3 hours of using it. This is normally where I have issues and I had none. I did not use any other nutrition and never bonked. Even felt strong enough to run some faster miles at the end. Looking forward to using it during some longer runs and races.

Provided an excellent supply of energy during my running of the Cactus to Cloud 50k. Quite a challenging event, but I felt great throughout.

I love the large pouch for use at home when I am not racing. I love the product and now it is even quicker for me to mix up a batch and go running. Everyone should use TAILWIND.

I first tried Tailwind after hearing the hosts of Trail Runner Nation podcast speak its praises. I have not used any other type of fuel/nutrition for my long runs, races, or ultra events since. That was 2012. I have a hard time with races, and cannot rely on aid stations because I have Celiac disease. This disease means I cannot have anything with gluten- think wheat, barley, most oats, etc. This rules out the traditional fuel sources that most runners rely on such as gels and bars. Tailwind is safe for me to drink and meets all my needs. When I rely on Tailwind, I know I am getting sufficient and satisfying hydration as well as fuel. I use Tailwind exclusively on any run over 10 miles whether I have it in my Tailwind bottle, or a full hydration pack. I bypass all the aid stations and keep on running. I may sneak a salted potato late into an ultra, but who can resist that. It's Tailwind all the way!!

Ran my first trail Marathon with tailwind and had plenty of energy and no G.I. issues the whole race. Only been using it this past month but impressive thus far.
Posted by Jeremiah Wean on 5th May 2015
It seems hard to believe that you can carry in your hand all the calories you need to cover 50 miles and longer. I gave it the try and it really is "all you need!"
The product held up through a 50 mile race is 95* temps. The only thing I had all day was Tailwind. It has a great taste that never wears on you.
I have used this in multiple other training runs as well as green marathon races that let you bring your own bottles and nutrition.
Give it try, you will love it!

I love you guys, another successful usage story just yesterday, 4.5 hr ride on nothing but TW, there is not another nutritional product that can possibly do that, or even make that claim, its just so preposterous that no company would even dare, but not you, because its the crazy truth. I tell all my endurance athlete friends about it,and several have switched from what they were using, thanked me and wished they had done it sooner.
Posted by Ben Brewer on 5th May 2015
I love Tailwind! I train, race and, occasionally, recover from victory celebrations with this stuff!
It is easy to drink, mix, pack.... the list goes on. If you haven't tried it, don't cheat yourself out of one of the best activity nutrition things on the market.
No stomach aches. No nausea. No lows.(when done correctly)

I have been strugglign with nutrition on the bike for a couple of years and tried Tailwind at the recommendation of my coach. I was surprised with how well it worked and how I felt it so quickly. The item mixes well (a big issue with me with other products clumping on the bottom of the bottles) and the taste os so light it is almost indistunguishable which is great as well. Love it, and will be ordering more soon.
Posted by Steven on 4th May 2015
I have experimented with many nutritional products over the years. I got tired of dealing with electrolyte pills and gels. It's really great to just think about consuming a certain volume of fluid and that's it. Also, the tailwind tastes great after many hours and I will just drink that and munch on whatever looks good at aid stations. I have used tailwind at my last several ultramarathons from 50K to 100 miles and had great success.
Posted by Chris on 1st May 2015
I could not be happier with this product. I trained with it in preparation for my last 50k. It was all I needed during the race, and I plan to use it for a 100k in a few weeks.
Posted by Unknown on 30th Apr 2015
Have used for 10 days now on a couple of 60 mile bike rides and a few 3 hour mountain bike rides. Happy with the mild flavor and no stomach discomfort. I seem to have a sensitive digestive system with other products and am glad Tailwind has so far proven not to give me stomach issues...
Posted by Elaine on 30th Apr 2015
I trained with your product and raced with it and you have never let me down. Thank you so much! No issues ever!

I struggle with blood sugar, inflammation and GI issues, which all are exacerbated during endurance workouts. I've been using a superstarch product, which works well, but I find it incredibly unpalatable after five or six hours of exercise in the heat--and there is the mess/cost factor. I heard about Tailwind from another participant in a local tri, and thought I'd give it a shot. Drank one bottle the day before, just to test any immediate reactions--found the taste (got the plain/unflavored) light and refreshing, with no cloying after taste or coating. Went out the next day for a 100+ mile windy ride in 85-90 degree temps, using Tailwind and water as my only fuel/hydration source. Kept my energy up and no bonk. Zero GI issues. Didn't use my backup fuel, which I had brought just in case. Still found it easy to drink when it got warm (inevitably in those temps). Refueled mid-ride with cold water and a ziplock bag of Tailwind, and it dissoved immediately without mess. I did find that I needed to be very consistent in taking in the fuel to avoid any dips in energy. Set a timer for 15 minutes and was fine. Just ordered the individual serving packets for convenience in an upcoming event--will try some of the other flavors!

My friend and Tailwind Ambassador, Justin Radley, shared some TW with me last year and since then I have run some of my best and hardest races. From 46 miles, on pavement, in Florida, in AUGUST to my first 100 miler. Tailwind has been with me for every race! It makes me feel energized with NO bonking, I need less food which means less time stopping and less stomach aches. Better than that is that I no longer need GU or gels which really reeked havoc on my stomach. Tailwind is easy to digest and I can drink it for hours and hours. Thank you for developing such an awesome powder. I have shared several packets with many friends who are now also using your product. Keep up the great work!

I first purchased Tailwind whle on vacation last Sept in Minniapolis. Have been so pleased with the product that I continue to order and abosrb the shipping cost to Canada which add 40% more to my purchase. For me, the reward out ways the cost. Tailwind performs as advertised. On a recent 50 mile run Tailwind was THE ONLY FORM OF NUTRITION that I used. No bonk, no hunger pangs, enoungh energy to run the last 3 miles faster than what my over all pace was.
