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. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. AWESOME 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 16th May 2016)

    You could say I have severe stomach issues during long runs. I used Tailwind to jam out my 100k with ZERO stomach issues AND it tasted great the entire time. I love it!

  7. Superb! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 16th May 2016)

    I used Tailwind exclusively on a 3-4 hour outrigger canoe trip this past Saturday. I put 9 scoops of mandarin orange in a 100 ounce hydration bladder, and it was just enough fuel for the entire 23 miles. Thrilled to no longer have to stop paddling to consume gross tasting gels or blocks. Thanks Tailwind!

  8. Breakthrough Product 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 16th May 2016)

    After experimenting with every gel, cube and other shape and nature of product, individually and in combination, I have found in Tailwind a product that provides both fuel and electrolytes that I can take while hydrating and that creates no stomach distress. It has propelled this older runner through marathons and half marathons without fail.

  9. keeps ya fueled w/o energy bars 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 12th May 2016)

    Tailwind keeps you fueled without bothering with bars and gels that fill up your pocket and get warm and gooey. True its claim, I have never had any gastric distress. Nor have I ever bonked. Good product, fast shipping.

  10. It's go time! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 11th May 2016)

    I don't normally write reviews, but Tailwind deserves a pat on the back! It keeps me going on my runs over an hour, and has eliminated the need to worry about fueling for my races.

  11. St George Ironman 70.3 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 10th May 2016)

    I was using other products when I began training and they kept making me sick.
    My friend Carl recommend Tailwind. He said he had been using it for quite a while and he never got sick plus it provided everything he needed for his training and events.
    I placed an order and began using it during my training and during the St George Ironman 70.3.
    I feel better since I began using Tailwind and have not gotten sick. Not only does it help with nutrition but I stay hydrated as well.
    I have recommended Tailwind to my Team Members and they have made the switch also.
    Great product at an affordable price.
    Thanks Tailwind!
    Swim, Bike, Run and be happy!

  12. Never fails 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 10th May 2016)

    I'm a true believer in Tailwind. I particularly enjoy the Mandarin Orange and am currently using it for my ultra training. Working great!

  13. Changed my life man... 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 10th May 2016)

    I first had the opportunity to try Tailwind at my first 50k. I was struggling at the 25k mark and a fellow runner put this in my handheld and gave me another serving for the next aid station. As the headline reads, it changed my whole race. Within a few miles, I already felt better. Most of my problems were due to " gel gut", which was my main source of calories. Since that race, I have been using Tailwind for training and will continue to use it for all future races. I have used two of the other "big name" drink mixes and none have compared to the taste and simplicity of being able to use Tailwind for all aspects of my nutrition in training. I still utilize some solids (fruits and other aid station fare) but I think that is just something to do...not something I HAVE to do. Great product and I hate that I didn't use it sooner!

  14. My berry delicious Tailwind 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 8th May 2016)

    I bought a large bag of Tailwind Beery flavor. I love the taste! It's super easy on my digestive system. I tried it out for the first time this past weekend at a Spartan Beast race. It was a super hilly and technical race a little over 13 miles with 35 obstacles. I filled my pack up with Tailwind and Kangen water and nothing else. I finished the race in around 5.5 hrs and not only did I have plenty of energy I was not even hungry once during the entire duration of the race. Can't say enough about how wonderful Tailwind is. No complaints!

  15. Perfect 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 4th May 2016)

    I have been using Tailwinds for a month for triathlon training. It's the best! I don't have to worry about adding electrolytes, salt or anything extra! Its perfect for me!! I even use it for short rides & runs! I highly recommend "Tailwinds!"

  16. Best endurance fuel on the market 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 4th May 2016)

    The Cohutta 100 has been my epic ride of choice for the past 5 years. During the years I have tried it all; Whole foods, competitors endurance powders, and combinations of the two. After a subpar performance last year compared to my riding buddies (who were running tailwind) I thought that I would give it a try this year. I can honestly say that Tailwind helped me achieve my fastest time ever all wile keeping me hydrated and fueled. I used to be a skeptic, but now I'm a believe - Thanks Tailwind!

  17. All in one fueling 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 4th May 2016)

    Excellent taste and very easy on the stomach. I get my calories, water and electrolytes all in one package for long runs. No longer setting reminders on my watch to take a gel , with Tailwind I have just been sipping as per thirst and haven't had a single issue

  18. Love this product! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 3rd May 2016)

    I needed a product to fuel my long runs and I found it!!! From the first time I tried it, it gave me the endurance I needed to take my long distance running to the next level! I also find it refreshing after a short run!

  19. Best Ever!!! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 3rd May 2016)

    I have been using Tailwind in my training for only two weeks now and already i see the difference. It is absolutely amazing. It's so easy to mix, taste great, and has everything I need. Calories, salt, electrolytes....it simplifies my ultra-running nutrition in to one great product. So glad i found this product just as I started my training for my next 100 mile trail race. Thanks Tailwind!

  20. 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.

  21. 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.

  22. 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.

  23. 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!

  24. 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!

  25. 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!
