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.

Aside from the terrible packaging, I love everything about Tailwind. I will continue to use it and advocate to my friends.
I purchased my first bag of Tailwind Endurance Fuel after a 7-time Leadville finisher (with buckles) recommended it to me. She said it would be the only fuel I would need. Before Tailwind, I had never been able to do mountain bike rides of over 50 miles without dealing with leg cramps. Sometimes minor, but usually severe. I sweat a lot, so my body depletes salt, potassium, calcium, and other essential nutrients rapidly. Since buying Tailwind, I’ve been doing long training rides without cramping. Recently, for my 58th birthday, I mapped a course of 58 miles (90% off-road) that included almost 9K feet of climbing. Two friends joined me that day. One bailed out about 25 miles due to severe cramps. He had water, bars, and gels. The other, a friend that usually out-climbs me, finished the ride, but not without suffering cramping the last ten miles, and me beating him silly on those final long climbs. He was using a different sports drink, bars, and gels. His last words to me that day before driving home were “You sure looked fresh on those last few climbs. I’m going to go home and order some of that Tailwind.” I did feel fresh, and I attribute that to using Tailwind. With four+ months to go before heading to Leadville for the LT100 MTB, I’ve already settled on my nutrition plan. Tailwind!
Tailwind is amazing!
Tailwind has taken the guess work out of my nutrition plan. Water+ Tailwind= success. Thank you for making a great product that works.
Great product, I have been using this product for over 3 years, I have nothing negative about it to say, Flavor it is great, dissolve pretty easy, nothing to be worry about any stomach issues, all around it a great product. I'll recomended.
I switched over to TW about 1.5 years ago. I have been a long distance mountain biker for several years. Over the years I have tried different electrolyte replacements via gels and drinks. I always found them to start upsetting my system a couple hours into the rides.
Heard about TW and gave it a try. I thought how could a bottle replace the solid food I was ingesting. Gave it a try and was surprised by how it worked. There was a short period of getting over the mental brainwashing of thinking I had to eat solid food. In fact for the first 3 weeks of using TW I carried the same pack of Clifbloks and a gel in my jersey pocket as a "just in case". Once past the mental roadblock, it was clear how well this stuff works.
I regularly do 6-12 hrs mountain bike rides in warm sunny So. Cal. with only TW. No loss in energy. No upset belly. No more hunger. No more cramping.
I like that no matter the temps...it doesn't get difficult to drink. Some drink mixes are just horrible if they aren't ice cold.
TW has made planning long days on the bike simple. I pack all the TW I will need for the day and remix my bottles as needed.
You won't be disappointed.
No matter how much I seem to hydrate before and after long or hard runs I always seem to get a dull, throbbing, untouchable headache. I was introduced to Tailwind at the Pistol Ultra, as it was their drink of choice on the course. I know they say never try anything new on race day, but I had been wanting to try it and after doing a bit of research I didn't think it would hurt to give it a shot. I ran my first ever 50K that day and felt unremarkable. The next day it hit me - I DIDN'T GET A HEADACHE! I ordered some for myself soon after. Drinking Tailwind during a long run or immediately after a hard speed workout keeps my headaches away. If I forget to have some and I end up getting a headache, I've found one scoop in 8 ounces of water will get rid of it fast. If you suffer from post-workout headaches this stuff is definitely worth a try!
Been using this product for a couple years now. I'm a half marathoner, marathoner, and a biker.
This is my go to for everything. 2 years ago I ran a marathon and got a personal goal. That's it I was sold. Also it wasn't until mile 19 that I thought about it and realized it was the only nutrition that I had been taking. Wow! Last half I forgot to buy some. I was dying in the half. By mile 11 I told myself never again will I go without tailwind. I did not p.r. That race but I did purchase more when I got home. Next race is in a month and we will see the difference in my run.
Also I purchased their collapsable water bottle. Another love of mine.
Tailwind Endurance Fuel has helped me surpass some serious nutritional hurdles on my route to become a serious ultra runner! There are so many options on what to eat and drink during races, before and after training, and to keep your body happy and healthy. I would say I found all of that within Tailwind's Endurance Fuels. If I need a little extra boost I might switch to the caffeine fuels but Tailwind gets me through those long hard runs and has continued to help me excel in the ultra running world! Thanks to everyone at Tailwind Nutrition for the great service and great product!
