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 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!"

Glad to find a nutrition that has a mild flavor and provides me with calories, salts, and nutrition! As my training for a 70.3 triathlon builds I am very thankful for Tailwind!

This product has getting me through my ultra races for almost two years! Great product!

I have been using Tailwind for almost two years now. Recommended by a friend. Took me awhile to catch on. Tri's, trial ultras and everything in between. My drink of choice! I still need some solid fuel (could be all in my head) for longer distances but generally Tailwind provides what I need.

I recently ran the Beaverhead Endurance 55k and used Tailwind through the entire race. I did not experience any bonking or stomach issues. This was my most successful ultra marathon and Tailwind was a huge part.

Thank you Tailwind! I shaved 1 1/2 hours off my previous time from 4 years ago. This race is traditionally HOT and ends with a ridiculous vertical climb up the Kenyon Devore Trail. Tailwind was my only source of fuel and salts. I had no discomfort and tons of energy to survive the brutal heat and climbs. You guys rock.

After fussing with gels for years I tried tailwind 2 years ago and it blew my mind.
In June I ran my first 50 miler and couldn't have finished without tailwind at my side. I used it for 99% of my calorie needs.
I also use it in the mountains when mountain climbing. No bonk, no gut bomb.

I've suffered from nutrition fatigue. After a 4 hours, I wouldn't be able to keep drinking to meet my needs. I am finding tailwind the exact opposite. I want to drink it. Even after 6 hours, even after 8 hours. Big change for me. Feeling fresher longer. Running more steady after a brutal bike. Love the flavors and my stomach feels great.

I have been using tailwind for a few weeks now. It has replaced a whole mess of products I was using before. I am training for an Ironman so it's nice to be able to only take liquids with me on longer rides and then just fill up a camelback for the long runs. It mixes well, and tastes great. I ended up getting orange and raspberry. Altogether, a great product. Shipping was very fast too.

I have been using Tailwind for several months. Tastes great, easy to mix, flavor mix well together. I like being able to customize the caffine level of my fuel. I really like not having to chew rubbery blocks while running and avoiding the gels and the gut bombs. Highly recommend this product.

Training in Florida with high heat and humidity i have always had a problem of feeling exhausted and feeling heavy after a few miles in the heat. I changed fuel, eating before and after and nothing helped. I have a sensitive stomach and heat makes it even worse. Tailwind not only has been easy on my stomach in 80* temperatures but I no longer feel that exhaustion caused by electrolyte unbalance! i still feel tired but tailwind re-energizes me quickly! I wish I had this product when I ran my first marathon where heat caused cramps! Love the lemon, raspberry flavors without caffeine.

I used (mostly) Tailwind on 120 mile, 11 hour ride up three mountain passes in Colorado. I hadn't used it much before, so had to adjust amounts as I went. It worked great as a sole source of fuel and hydration. I carried a maximum ratio of Tailwind in my hydration pack and then plain water in one water bottle and augmented with that because sometimes I wanted a less concentrated mixture, or wanted to eat a bite or two of food. I didn't care for the lemon flavor as much as the orange. Worked great for me!

This is my first season racing in 100 mile mountain bike races. Until I found tailwind I was rotating between bonking or puking. I could not keep up with training for more than 30-40 miles. I have tried a variety of products including, gels,bars and other sport drinks which left me feeling bloated and crampy. With tailwind I have been able to ride hard without feeling hungry or thirsty and have been able to put many miles out on the trails! I recommend tailwind to anyone who has stomach issues while exerting themselves to the extreme. Plus the flavors are great and the prices reasonable.

Great replacement for Gatorate, and given its high calorie content, replaces partially GU as well. It doesn't cause GI issuess such as rumblings I would feel after taking Gatorade. Very similar to Skratch. More calories and more salty than Skratch. Not sweet tasting, flavoring (I tried lemon) is mild and easy on the palette. High electrolyte content makes it ideal for long, hot, humid run. I end up using about 40 oz (four scoops) for a 12-15 mile run.

I spent years working in the hot Arizona sun. Summers as a SWAT cop, trying to stay hydrated with H2O/Gatorade mix always shut my stomach down half way through the day. Tailwind doe not shut me down. Water keeps on being absorbed without the burning gut. I am sold.

Tailwind got me through my IM 70.3! I have a lot of food sensitivities, and had no problems with it at all! Highly recommend it!!
Carrie (Submitted on 28th Jun 2016)
I am training for my first marathon. Tried so many different fuels and they all bothered my stomach. I also had a hard time eating while running, I just don't want to eat during runs. This gives me the energy on my long runs to keep going without needing to eat!

I haven't had a chance to use it in a ultra yet so I can't give 5 stars stay tuned.
I've almost worked through a 50 serving bag in training and so far so good. I've had ZERO gut issues in fact guts have never felt better.

This is the best endurance fuel I've used. I've tried most and have found Tailwind to be the best single product available.
Stephanie (Submitted on 27th Jun 2016)
I am absolutely thrilled with both Tailwind products I have bought. I started with raspberry buzz for Saturday morning long runs. In addition to being delicious and effective as fuel and hydration, I like that the caffeine keeps my caffeine headache at bay (drinking coffee before a run upsets my stomach, but caffeinated Tailwind never has). Once my midweek runs reached more than 6 miles, I knew I needed Tailwind without caffeine for evening runs. I bought the mandarin orange flavor and I am equally impressed. I am Tailwind ride or die for sure!

Easily tolerated, tastes great, mixes easy...what more can I say. It works! My only regret is I waited so long before I tried it. Go Tailwind go!
Steve M. (Submitted on 23rd Jun 2016)
I've tried them all... No need to name them. For all day rides in the mountains, Tailwind can't be beat. I can go all day on Tailwind at approximately one bottle per hour, and never bonk. :-) With hot southern California weather, I wouldn't ride without it.

Tailwind keeps me going on all my workouts! I train for triathlon 6 days a week and Tailwind is an integral part of my nutrition! I sip it while sitting in classes at school to maintain hydration between workouts and it is a main component of workouts and race days! It really keeps me going in a healthy, natural way! The Tailwind staff makes me feel special too, always a handwritten note wishing me luck in my races, and sometimes special goodies tucked in the package, like tattoos and stickers!
