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.

No coloring, no aftertaste, not too sweet. LOVE this! I just ran a 20 miler today and I can tell the difference compared to previous hydrations I used to drink. Another Tailwind convert, me!

I been using Tailwind for several weeks now. The best electrolyte drink out there. All the flavors are great tasting. Recommend it to all endurance athletes to give it a try.

I used Tailwind Endurance Fuel today for the first time for my 8 miler and no stomach issues!! I'm really glad to have found Tailwind, thanks to a friend's recommendation. Thanks!

Received my order the other day and immediately put to use over back to back runs of 13 and 21 miles.
As advertised, mixes completely, taste great, no stomach issue, and maintained a high level of energy especially on the second day.
Have an upcoming 100 mile event in May and will be sure to be well stocked up with Tailwind Fuel.

I've been running ultra marathons for about three years now. I've tried Vitargo, Heed, and a couple other products, but always ended up with stomach issues or nausea. I ran a 50K two weeks ago and had nothing but the unflavored Tailwind and occasional aid station food. It was an absolute success. Energy levels were great the whole race, even with icy, rainy, muddy conditions!

I am very happy with this product. Tastes so good I find myself drinking it even when I'm not running/biking. Doesn't upset my stomach the way other overly sugary drinks do. Unlike Nuun it also has carbs. I just wish there was a portable version like Nuun tabs.

Love this product and will continue to use it as my 'go-to' fuel for long distance runs. I sometimes carry a single bottle with 2 scoops in it or carry a hydration bladder of straight up water and put concentrated (2.5 scoops) in a small Salomon Flask. Either way, it is easily digested and helps keep my electrolytes and fuel tank up.

I've gotten older, slower and wiser with time. Just completed my 31st consecutive Honolulu Marathon this December. Completed more road races, trail run, triathlons and ultra then you could add up without a calculator. Tried every drink, gel and magic potion ever designed to improved athletic performance know to man. What works best? Tailwind hands down! Just mix with water and go all day. Listen to your elders. Nuff said.

I have had good luck with most energy drinks, but Tailwind is by far the BEST! It mixes easy, tastes light, and doesn't leave a gooey mess in the bottle or bladder. Also, I know this is not the products intended use, but I found it works good for a hangover too :) :) :)

I love that once I start drinking Tailwind that I am almost instantly not hungry. It is very hard since I am vegan and allergic to soy so I can not have most of the fuel that people can consume during a race. This works great.

So far so good. I heard about this product on Ginger Runner and so I tried it. I do not like most of the products out there as they often upset my stomach. I have used this on multiple long runs with no issues. I prefer the unflavored the best as the fruit flavor of the others tends to be a little too sweet for me.
Posted by Adam Hawk Daddy Hawkins on 12th Jan 2015
I had heard about Tailwind on podcasts from TAUR and Ginger Runner. I saw other runners/athletes heaping praise on Tailwind on social media, too.
I was a bit skeptical when I saw that it mixed clear. But, after that first drink, I was happy. The taste is great! It's flavorful, but not overpowering. It's light and easy to drink.
I am very excited to experiment with Tailwind as I train for my first 50K!

I recently completed a 24 hour non-stop Standup Paddle Challenge using Tailwind as my primary source of calories and fuel. I am so impressed with this product! I used a combination of caffeinated and non caffeinated powders to supplement my energetic needs for 24 hours. I felt amazing (almost) the entire time. It tastes great! No after taste! No dry, sticky mouth that I have experienced from other electrolyte mixes. No hunger! Lots of energy! Really Really Really Happy with using Tailwind. I was able to unofficially break the Womens' 24hour distance record and plan to do it officially later this year. I will definitely stick with Tailwind Nutrition. Their Customer Service is excellent as well! quick and helpful responses to all my email questions. THANK YOU TAILWIND NUTRITION! Your Powder is the BOMB!

I have been using FirstEndurance for years for high electrolytes and low sugar sports drink. After a friend pointed me to Tailwind I gave it a try.
During the first run it felt a little heavy on the stomach but was effective. I think that was just an adjustment period. I have gone on 4-30 mile training runs since then and have used Tailwind for every one of them. It has removed the need for gels and electrolyte tablets and does a pretty good job of combating hunger.
Going forward I plan to use Tailwind for 100% of my runs and will only supplement solid food when going 50 miles or more.

I have used the non-caffeinated Tailwinds product on two of my longer runs. Like the ease of use, mixes well and tastes good. In the past, 2-4 Gels would not settle with my stomach and caused issues. Happy with this product and will continue to use in the future.
Posted by Andy Farina on 24th Dec 2014
Tailwind is a FANTASTIC Product!! Mixes easy every time! Tastes great and not overly sweet! Very cost effective! And has performed well in every Ultra-Marathon and long training session I have used it! That says a lot!
I highly recommend you try it. I like the Lemon but have not tried other flavors yet. Go for it!

I have been using Tailwind for a year and absolutely love it. I generally only use it for runs of 13+ miles, and have used it for multiple 50k's and a 12 hour race where I ran 46+ miles. For most of those events Tailwind was either my sole or main fuel. For the longer events I tend to mix in some blocks or soda, which is more for a mental boost than anything - the Tailwind really does keep me feeling good.

I've tried a few other "endurance" products in past years with mediocre success. I have to say I was skeptical when I bought Endurance Fuel but I've been hearing a lot about it on FB running pages so I figured I'd give it a shot. I've logged a few 2+ hour runs using it and I have to say I've become a fan. I can tell I have more energy after the first hour and seem to have more stamina to maintain my pace. I haven't needed to supplement with other food either. I've noticed less soreness post run since using Tailwind and recovery seems to be faster. I don't think the company makes any claims about that but it's something I've noticed.
The taste is mild and not too sweet. It's a little more salty than others but not in an unpleasant way. Very easy to drink.
Posted by Jesus Ortega on 22nd Dec 2014
I've been through the the spectrum of drinks, and Tailwind is by far the best I've tried. It's not syrupy or sugary like everything else out there. It tastes great, it's mild and actually helps settle my stomach a little; and best of all, it kept my hydrated last summer in my first MTB Endurance race in the So Cal dog days...100º! I can't imagine ever going back to the others.

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 :-)
Posted by Robert Bird on 17th Dec 2014
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!
