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've been struggling with my fueling for about a year. I had been a gel girl, which was fine, but was before I got into Ultra running. Now that I'm facing my first 100M, I knew I had to buckle down and get this figured out...before race day. I had heard so much about the Tailwind that I decided to give it a try. Can't tell you how much I love this stuff!!! Now that my fueling is settled, time to go get that buckle!

I've only been running for about a year. When I started training for my first marathon, every time I tried to take in calories, whether by gels or real food, I was hit with a wave of nausea almost instantly. How the heck was I going to be a runner if I couldn't take in calories!? Enter Tailwind. On the recommendation of an ultra runner, I gave Tailwind a shot in a last ditch effort to pursue my goal of becoming an ultra runner. Tailwind saved my ambition - it was easy on the stomach, tasted great and gave me the calories needed to run long distances. Thanks to Tailwind, in the last year I've completed 10 races including 6 marathons (5 being ultras, up to 100k) and will tackle the 100 mile distance in October. If you have any GI issues whatsoever, or just need a boost during training, give Tailwind a shot. You won't regret it!

Before Tailwind, I was really more of a wannabe-endurance athlete than anything else. I had one long ride I'd do three or four times a month, and while I loved the thought of being someone who could do that, the actual doing was pretty scary. There were times I'd be getting to the halfway point wondering how I even made it that far and having no idea how -- or if -- I'd make it home. The dreadful last 10 miles or so, being so shaky and crampy and bonky I would sometimes have to just get off and walk because I couldn't tell which of the two roads I was seeing was the one to ride on. When I did get home, the cramping would stay with me for the rest of the day, making riding not just scary, but debilitating as well. I kept doing it because I'm stubborn, but deep down it felt like what I was doing “for my health” was actually bad for me.
I thought I was just too old (55½) and too weak, turns out I just needed the right fuel. I was blown away by what a difference it made. Before Tailwind, on the weeks I didn't do my long ride I'd hardly ever make my 210 mile/week goal, and now I'm averaging 260. With nothing but a couple bottles and a nice baggie full of Tailwind I can hop on the bike and go for a 5 or 6 hour ride and enjoy every minute of it, then get home and carry on with normal activities.
That's not just game-changing, it's life-changing.

I've been using Tailwind for about 8 months now and it covers all of the things I've been looking for in hydration! No belly bombs, nice amount of calories, tastes awesome even the naked flavor, it moisturizes my mouth, and keeps me hydrated! It was 100+ degrees last weekend for the Cool Moon 100, I stayed nicely hydrated & kept calories in check as I lead the race and won! It's things like finding the right products like this that can help me and anyone achieve their goals! Thank you for your awesome product! Tina Shinn

Great product!! Easy to use in any athletic setting. I have to admit that the first time I tried it I was not convinced but a second try got me hooked ..

Training for 50 mile. Works great for long runs.

I am on my third bag of tailwind and love it. I mostly use it for my runs and races or hydration if I slacked that day on water. Recently I wanted to use up my Gatorade that has been sitting for a few months. When I tasted the Gatorade, it tastes really fake! I never knew how bad Gatorade tastes until I had something better to compare it to.

My wife and I both loaded this in our hydration packs for a 60 miler on our tandem. We beat our average speed by more than 2 miles an hour and finished strong. The taste is pretty good, and we really felt energized at the end. Add in the fact that it eliminates all of the hassle of carrying and finding food and it really is a winner.

Tried every product known to man regarding hydration and fuel while riding and racing mountain bikes all over the country - NOTHING WORKS BETTER THAN TAILWIND!!!
For really long, epic rides where cramping could be an issue, I throw down a 4 oz bottle of sports pickle juice (or 2) about half way thru the ride and I'm good to go.
Run, don't walk, to Tailwind's website and try it for yourself - you will NOT be disappointed!!!

This is the third year my daughter and I took on the Kaiwi Channel (Molokai to Oahu) with confidence using Tailwimd. It's the best nutrition we've come across for the distance paddleboard races we live for, especially when traveling in hot environments. Recommended!
And a great bonus is the personal care and quality the Tailwind Team delivers on every order. They care about their product and the athletes that use it.

Great bottle, first one I've had that is 100% leak proof after having it more than a month!

I love the pan-molarity of this mix. Half scoop, one scoop, two scoops in 24oz water all taste good and have the desired effect. All the flavors are great, so I'm working my way through the big packs now. Has anyone tried adding their own flavors to the "natural"?

Tried Tailwind at the North Face Challenge-Ontario and was surprised how good it tasted. It sat well with my tummy and provided hydration, electrolyte and fuel in one fluid. Great product.

I've been using Tailwind for a couple years now, everything from a half marathon to a 24hour obstacle course races. This product truly works! Tastes great, gives you the boost you need, no stomach issues & just an awesome overall company!

Couldn't have been happier using the unflavored endurance fuel for 6.5hrs of a Spartan Beast. Was so easy on the stomach that in comparison, it was pure water in the late stages of the race that seemed harder to deal with. Definitely will be my only choice for long hot races in the future.

Used the Mandarin Orange flavor on my first 50M trail run and mixed it to be a little more concentrated than the directions called for. Ended up using about 2/3rds of the medium size bag in 140oz of water and it was perfect for me. I did supplement with some real food because I just felt lie I needed to, but it was great to have Tailwind with me to drip calories in every few minutes while I was out that day!

I love the orange flavor of Tailwind! I use this to keep my salt and hydration balanced during long runs. It's saved me on more than one occasion!

Was told about Tailwind at a long distance triathlon back in April so I ordered some up and played with it during my training period for Ironman Vineman. Race day came and I used it during the event. On the bike I also ate some waffles and part of an energy bar to quell hunger pangs but on the run, I tried it exclusively along with water to get through the 26.2 mile excursion. It worked! No stomach issues, no cramping...just the usual aches and pains. I'm far from an elite athlete...I'm just a 58 year old age grouper who shoots for my personal best and I think I've found something that helps.

I used it most recently on a 39 mile loop near Mt Rainier and it was quite effective. The next day my wife used it at the White River 50 miler and shaved nearly 1.5 hours off her previous 50 mile time. We were quite happy with it and it will continue be a part race nutrition plan.

I just started using Tailwind. It has gotten me through a couple four-hour training runs in brutal heat and humidity. I felt great during the runs and recovered easily afterward. This is fantastic stuff. And it tastes really good.

Tailwind has been a huge GAME CHANGER in my running. I have made the switch to Tailwind in my 100-mile ultra training and couldn't be happier. It mixes easy and quickly and the taste is light and crisp. It provides me with everything i need to keep moving under extended periods of time and keeps the legs fresh. AMAZING PRODUCT!

I love Tailwind nutrition! I've used it to train for and run half marathons and full marathons! It's my first choice for nutrition. It's also great for shorter runs during the awful heat of the summer. It never feels heavy in my stomach. The taste is great! None of the flavors are over powering and if you're not a fan of flavor you can get the naked unflavored. If you don't know what flavor you want I totally recommend getting a stick pack bundle with a variety of flavors. That's what I did and I found my favorite flavor of mandarin orange.

I have been using Tailwind for almost 2 years and love it. However the last 2 - 50 serving packages the I received will not reseal. I have had to put them into a resealable zip lock freezer bags.

I’ve been using Tailwind for a few months now and am impressed with the results. I’ve tried many different products in the past to help avoid bonking on long and hot mtb rides and hikes but Tailwind performs beyond anything else I’ve used. It mixes well, has barely any taste, it’s very palatable and even if the water gets hot, it’s still drinkable without having to choke it down and feel like you’re being tortured. I like that I can put it in my bladder if I need to (usually have 70oz water and one bottle of Tailwind) and don’t have to worry about a sticky mess to clean up and I don’t have to carry a bunch of gels or food for longer rides which is a plus. This stuff is crazy good performance wise, they definitely hit it out of the park with this product.

I've been using Tailwind to get me through long summer runs. In previous years I've had to postpone some long runs until the heat & humidity of Mid-Atlantic USA goes away. But with the help of Tailwind I'm able to get the long runs in, essentially extending my training season! My coach recommended Tailwind before racing the Highlands Sky 40M, and it worked really well for me. The race had Tailwind at the aid stations, and I was able to turn the dial in heat of afternoon. So much so, in fact, I crossed the finish line earlier than anticipated and my crew missed my finished! Someone at Tailwind please tell marketing you have new slogan: "Tailwind - messes up your support crew!"
