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.

In my long-distance gravel cycling, I was hitting a wall with how far I could go before bonking. Clif bars and Gatorade extended my range for a while, but it got bothersome to consume enough to keep me going past 40 miles. I tried out the stick packs to figure out what I liked best; I felt a little queasy the first few I had, but by the last 2 it no longer bothered me. I ordered the large bags of Naked, and quickly adapted to it, so now I don't have to carry plain water anymore. Just when I thought I had it figured out, winter hit, and I had to figure out a higher concentration to keep my energy levels up.
Takes a little work to figure out what concentration I need in a particular situation, but when I have that dialed in I feel like I can go forever!

While my training was subpar for The North Face 50 Mile Endurance Challenge, I sadly could not blame my disappointing finish on my stomach. I used Tailwind from step one to step 60,000(?) and felt energized the whole time. My stomach never faltered and I never cramped. I love this product and can't wait to race with it while being backed with proper training :-)

I started using Tailwind because it was going to be provided at the Ft. Clinch Ultramarathon and I wanted to make sure it worked for me before I relied on it in the race. I now use it as my primary nutrition source both in training and races. I find as long as I drink it continuously I rarely even get hungry. I supplement it with just a little bit of solid food at aid stations based on appetite. It has also virtually eliminated my reliance on salt tablets.
I usually fill extra bottles with two scoops of the powder and leave them in my drop bags at races. All I have to do is add water, shake and run. It helps me to be quick and efficient moving through aid stations.
I love this product.

I took this stuff for a test run on a long and difficult trail with lost of climbs and descents and it worked perfectly. Normally I end up cramping near the end of my run on this particular trail, no matter how I fuel with gels and salt tabs and water, so I honestly anticipated the cramping even with Tailwind. Well the cramps never came, I never felt hungry, never felt thirsty, and my stomach didn't feel full or upset at any point. This product is great, and it is all I will be using for my next race as well as my first 50k coming up in March. Thanks Tailwind for an awesome product and great customer service!

I was able to secure and maintain a commanding lead in the Men's Open category of the 2014 Hellhole Gravel Grind Stage Race with the support of Tailwind Endurance Fuel as my primary calorie source.
With only a single aid station on a 73 mile course Saturday and a single aid station on Sunday's 77 mile course; it was imperative to not only calculate how many calories I would need to consume but to also be confident that those calories could sustain my efforts over an extended period in the saddle.
I'm pleased to say that Tailwind exceeded every need and never gave me worry that I would not have enough calories to finish and secure a gratifying win. Thank you to the crew at Tailwind!
Go Tailwind, Go!

Product works awesome without any stomach issues. THANKS for the great personalized service. I have already told the entire running bunch about your products (and even provided them with some samples).
I've tried almost every brand and finally found the ONE!
Keep up the great work - you have a new customer for life!

I've recently switched to Tailwind after previously relying on Gels and S-Caps and then to UCAN. With these previous strategies, there was too much logistics involved and needing to keep track of doses and times for consumption.
With Tailwind, I don't need to keep track of times anymore. I just drink when needed and each swig comes with nutrition, electrolytes and hydration. This regimen also doesn't prevent me from sampling the treats at the aid stations, or consuming a gel or two for an extra boost.

I tested out Tailwind with the stick packs, allowing to identify the flavors that I like best. I ended up then buying a large bag of the Lemon and Mandarin Orange! They are both incredible! With the bulk bags, I can easily mix a bottle at home on the way to a shorter run... or I can put my Tailwind into smaller bottles to transport in my running vest to refuel at springs along the way!!
I love your product and will continue to use it! I have a steep 50k (over 10,000' gain) and other races coming up, Tailwind has kept me going strong on my training runs and I've not had one cramp or stomach issue. I love this stuff.

I have been using Tailwind for two years now and am completely sold. Last weekend I finish a Trail Marathon fueling only with Tailwind. Earlier this year I had a strong 4th place finish at the Laurel Highlands 70 mile Ultra in Pennsylvania, fueling exclusively with Tailwind, plus one packet of Justin's Almond Butter. I also set a new FKT on the Bigelow Range Traverse in Maine only using Tailwind. As I have become better at knowing how much Tailwind I need vs water depending on the temperature, terrain, mileage, etc, I find it to be the perfect fuel for me. It's a simple, I don't have to over think my nutrition, and can focus on running. And I find the naked flavor tastes good all day long.

I used the naked endurance fuel all season and it is great stuff. I did not find my self getting tired of the taste. It really does keep me hydrated and does not seem that I take as many gels. So, I think that it is exactly as advertised. I really like it

I absolutely LOVE this product! I was apprehensive about trying something via mail, and was so happy that I took the gamble! I usually have oversensitive stomach, and any sports drink usually makes me feel queazy or ill! THIS DID NOT! I am a true believer in this product, and will use it for my running fuel for now on!

What else can I said about Tailwind, it really did the magic!!!
Posted by Ray Rowland on 11th Nov 2014
I used Tailwind as my primary source of calories and electrolytes for this year's La Ruta race in Costa Rica. With no support team, other than the nuetral checkpoint stops, I relied upon Endurance Fuel, a few protein bars and some aid station bananas (that didn't have the gigantic wasps). I didn't bonk or get muscle cramps the entire race. Thanks!

I used this product for the first time last weekend for a 50 mile trail run and absolutely loved it! I highly recommend making this your primary, or only, fuel for long distance events and training.
Posted by Carrie on 10th Nov 2014
This is a great product for those who can't use other forms of nutrition when they run. For whatever reason, I struggle with digestive issues during runs. This product helps me stay hydrated without the stomach issues.

I had heard a lot of great things about Tailwind Nutrition powder, so I finally bit the bullet and bought a sack.
It lives up to its word-of-mouth reputation. It is great: is it not syrup-y or sticky like other electrolyte drinks, and it goes down clean & tastes refreshing.
I've shared it with my running & ultra friends who all agree and intend to replace their traditional endurance nutrition needs with Tailwind. Great product, keep it up!
Posted by Burke on 4th Nov 2014
I approached Tailwind with a very skeptical attitude, but I needed something to fix my stomach issues. It has performed as advertised for me. I used Tailwind during the 2014 Pinhoti 100 Mile Endurance Run. I did supplement with some aid station food and a few things that I like to eat in these events. I used Tailwind for the bulk of my training for Pinhoti, including a 50 mile race in 90+ degree heat. I just don't seem to get energy drops, cramps, or stomach issues when I used it.

I had been encouraged to try this product for two years by my running partner! I finally did. I love it! I tried the caffeinated option first and now I'm experimenting with the non-caffeinated. I use for 20+ mile runs and while I have cut down considerably on the amount of "solid fuel" I still find I need some here and there. But overall I have to say that I really like the product and have yet to meet a flavor I don't like!
Posted by Matthew Owenby on 3rd Nov 2014
This stuff is great. It's the perfect combination of what every endurance athlete needs to complete their activity. I would highly recommend this to anyone doing any type of endurance activity.

I've been using Tailwind since the summer and it has not let me down. Yesterday I was able to complete a 50km trail run using Tailwind as sole nutrition. No stomach issues whatsoever.
I am confident in this product and will be using this for my first 50-miler later this month.

I just ran the Hartford Marathon a couple of weeks ago. It was my third marathon overall, and my first in almost ten years. I ran NYC in '05 and hit the wall so hard I bounced. This time I ran with Tailwind in my hydration pack (hey, I trained with it so I ran with it) and just couldn't find the wall. I PR'd by over an hour even with not running for three weeks before due to a knee issue. This stuff is the best and I will be using it for all my races and long training runs. Now if I could find a pack that won't break half-way through...

I have used a wide variety of nutritional products to varying degrees of success, Hammer, Osmo, Skratch etc. I came across Tailwind in a local Bay Area running shop SFRC. By the time I came across it it was the end of the triathlon season so I have only used the product for 2.5 to 3hr trail runs and 4 to 6hr rides. I tend to get GI issues with other products, I have no idea why. Other products would make me feel nauseous as soon as I swallowed a large mouthful out on a ride - not ideal. I typically mix 1 scoop unflavored with 1 scoop flavored in a 24oz bottle. This works well for me and tastes great. I love their tag line of no gut bombs, it really is spot on. I have had no nausea or GI issues while using this product. The real test will be using it to run off the bike at a long distance tri next season, but I really can't see it being a problem. I really like this product. Plus, coincidentally a tailwind is my favorite type of wind! I wish they all were tailwinds.

I just ran my 8th 100 this past weekend and it's the first one with zero stomach issues!! Thanks so much for a great product!

Tailwind is the only product I now use for all my running and workout needs. I have gotten rid of all my GU and other brands of powders. Tailwind is the only product I have found that hydrates me and keeps me going without having to use GU or food on my long runs. No stomach upset or anything, its a great product. I just completed a half marathon and wasn't sore the next day. Tailwind also supplies me with the potassium that I need to run, I have usually needed to carry a salt shaker during races to put additional salt in my water at aid stations. No more do I need to do that and I am so happy with Tailwind, I am now a customer for LIFE :)

I ran the Table Rock Ultra 54 mile race this past Saturday with 23,000' of elevation change. I am a big guy 6'3" 200lbs, so typically no matter what I have tried I always cramp. I put 5 servings of Tailwind in my handheld bottle and carried two more bags of 5 servings each. Then I had three more bags in my drop bag at the halfway point. So I drank 3000 calories worth during the race. The only other food I had was half a banana.
I made it to the finish line without cramping or getting nauseous. The last four miles were my fastest and I finished 13th overall. I am completely sold! I will be using and recommending Tailwind at all future races. Thank you!!!
