Tailwind Endurance Fuel


Description and Reviews

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!

Supplemental Facts
  • Complete calories, electrolytes, and hydration: Ditch the gels, chews, and pills, and go all day with just Tailwind.
  • No gut bombs: Stomach problems? You’ll love Tailwind. Unless you enjoy being doubled over, retching.
  • Tasty all day: Clean, light flavors taste better the longer you go.
  • Hydration pack love: Dissolves on contact with water and cleans up with a quick rinse. No film, aftertaste or science experiments!
  • All natural: Crystal clear with no dyes, preservatives or 4-syllable magical ingredients.


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.

  1. Great taste - good nutrition

    Posted by Unknown on 29th Jul 2014

    I started drinking Tailwind while road riding because of the nutrition value, light flavor and no stomach upset. Won't use anything else now! I take it running and mountain bike riding as well as on hikes. Have recommended it to my friends!

  2. Easy nutrition on the go!

    Posted by Chuck on 29th Jul 2014

    Heading into my first 12 hour race I was looking to improve my nutrition. I would occasionally have problems with GU and I wanted to simplify everything. During my last marathon I had problems scheduling my GU and salt tabs and frankly just forgot on more than one occasion.

    I trained with Tailwind over the last few months and everything just worked. I didn't have to carry gels and tabs, just drink every 10 minutes. My energy was stable and I kept going strong.

    I had a great 50 mile race this past weekend and I can't even fathom how many GUs I would have eaten over the coarse of 12 hours. Tailwind just worked.

  3. Training for half ironman

    Posted by Marianne Van Houtte on 28th Jul 2014

    Still in the review process. I did a 35 mile bike ride with an 8 mile run after in 90 degree humid weather. Energy on bike was great but I did have trouble on the run. I was extremely thirsty for plain water. I mixed 2 scoops per 24 ounces for bike ride and finished 2 bottles. Then 1 scoop for 16 ounces of water for the run. I ended up walking/ running for several miles. My fingers were pretty swollen also. I think I will try hydrating more day before brick and adding some plain water in between. Recovery has been good. I really think the heat and humidity were a little too much. Did not use any gels, no stomach issues at all, just wished for a little more energy on the run.

  4. Absolutely love, love, love this product.

    Posted by Jeremy Hanson on 28th Jul 2014

    I've tried EVERYTHING to fuel my runs, and running long distances in Houston during the Summertime, it is incredibly important to find something that you can drink a lot of that actually works. It is very easy to drink Tailwind for an entire long run without getting tired of it, and I've found that I need fewer gels to help fuel the run too. I have a 50K, 50 miler, and my first 100 miler coming up soon and Tailwind gives me a lot more confidence going into them. I know my body can do the distances as long as it is hydrated and fueled properly. I'm definitely a fan.

  5. Nothing better !

    Posted by Bill Packard on 27th Jul 2014

    I have been using Tailwind for 1.5 years now. My training and racing has improved constantly mainly due to the use of Tailwind. It allows me to go ultra distances at a fast pace and not have to worry about running out of fuel or getting sick to my stomach. If Tailwind works so well for me at an average of 600 miles per week in the Arizona heat, it should be the best product for just about anyone !

  6. My sensitive stomach is happy.

    Posted by Josh on 25th Jul 2014

    So far Tailwind has been easier on my stomach than any product I've tried. Still dialing dosage to exertion ratio but have been quite satisfied so far. Have tried all flavors and all are very palatable. That being said drinking any flavor for 3-4+ hours on a hot day gets a little old. May try higher concentration in one bottle and plain water in another.

    Nice to have a product perform as advertised, thanks Tailwind.

  7. Good Tailwind helps Badwater

    Posted by Steve Maliszewski on 25th Jul 2014

    Ran Badwater using tailwind as the basis for my nutrition. It worked really well. I didnt have any major stomach issues and was able to still be alert and running strong in the later miles of the race.

    Thanks guys

  8. Seriously works!

    Posted by Unknown on 24th Jul 2014

    I love this product, because it has a mild, pleasant flavor and it seems to work well. I have not experienced any bonk or stomach issues using this product. While my friends were gagging down pack after pack of gu on a recent 20+ run, I was sipping the Tailwind and loving life!! I've tried other (more expensive) products that make similar claims, but Tailwind is the only electrolyte powder that actually comes through on its promise.

  9. 100 miles, again

    Posted by Zak on 23rd Jul 2014

    Just in case I had any doubts.....ran the Vermont 100 using only Tailwind again. Fantastic results; no dips in energy, switched to the caffinated TW after 9 PM and felt a charge of energy that lasted until the finish. Easy recovery again! Improved my finish time by 1:45!

  10. Not done testing

    Posted by Jim McGuckin on 22nd Jul 2014

    I have a 50K in two weeks in which I will really get to put it to the test. So far the flavor has been pleasant on long runs and digestion seems to be no issue but we will wait to see after race conditions and 50K.

  11. Better, faster, stronger

    Posted by reuben on 21st Jul 2014

    I took a leap of faith and put tailwind to a first test this past weekend for my first half ironman. I'm a bigger person who struggles to stay hydrated and keep my salts/electrolytes in check. I constantly finish longer endurance events cramping or completely wiped. I sucked down three 24 oz 2-scoopers on the bike and an additional bottle of water. felt very strong coming out of T2, stronger than I've ever felt. No stomach issues (another issue I battle), and a very powerful run. I'm a believer! It's hard to think about using anything else for nutrition and hydration.

  12. Great even when mixed with Mandarin Orange

    Posted by Elena on 21st Jul 2014

    Felt great with an 18 mile run, no dips in energy. Did not use anything else for fuel. Accidentally mixed it with Mandarin Orange and tasted great!

  13. Reaching New levels

    Posted by Mike MacKay on 19th Jul 2014

    I had tried Tailwinds before and I thought it was good but there are so many different options out there and I went and tried a few.I had only been doing sprint triathlons and always cramped up on the run,This year I jumped up to olympic triathlons and doubled my training.I still had some tailwinds and started using it only.What a difference.I not only finished under my goal of 3 hours, there was no cramping!!Thanks tailwinds I learned my lesson, stick with the best.

  14. This #*!* works!!!!

    Posted by Gary on 18th Jul 2014

    I go on training rides that vary in length from 30 to 50+ miles, four to five days a week. Using Tailwind I no longer have to stop to eat power bars etc. Makes it so much easier to prepare for the next days ride. I just fill my Camel back with TW, place in the fridge and am ready to go for my ride the next day. I don't feel hungry during the ride, especially towards the end, like I used to when downing power bars or whatever I happened to take for my ride prior to using TW. I definitely will be using this as my go to fuel for my longer rides from now on....

  15. No stomach issues = 1st in Age Group at Black Hills 100!

    Posted by Ed Thomas on 16th Jul 2014

    I started using Tailwind a couple of months ago. I used it in training and used it at the Kettle Moraine 100 where I paced a friend. Even though I was pacing and not racing I felt good throughout the evening and late night hours and never felt hungry at all. I was pleased with the results. This past weekend was the true test. I ran the Black Hills 100 in Sturgis South Dakota. I carry 2 handhelds and loaded them with 250 calories each. I pre-made several baggies filled with Tailwind (250 calories ea. for the outbound and 200 calories ea for the inbound) and kept two in the pockets of my handhelds and the rest in drop bags. I worked hard at not exceeding 300 calories an hour and don't think I ever crossed that threshold. So here's the scoop (no pun intended!..ha!), the Tailwind worked like a dream! Last year at Leadville I had stomach issues the last 24 miles and couldn't keep anything down. Nothing, not even water. At Superior stomach issues weren't as bad but not much of an appetite and not much energy. I finished Leadville in 28:36 and finished Superior in 36:30. This past weekend, using almost exclusively Tailwind Nutrition (Berry flavor on the outbound, Raspberry Buzz on the inbound) I finished in 23:59. This was good enough for 6th place overall and 1st in my age group (50-59). Besides the Tailwind I ate 8 potato chips(yes I counted them for calories sake),7 pieces of watermelon and one piece of pineapple (because it looked so good). Other than that, only Tailwind! No stomach issues, no lack of energy. I just sipped one 20 ounce bottle per hour to keep my calories up. During the overnight hours I dropped down a bit on consumption because I wasn't sweating as much. Whenever I got a bit hungry I just took an extra sip and I was good. Also, this is the first race where I did not consume any protein whatsoever. I think this helped with carbohydrate absorption and glycogen conversion (but what do I know, I'm not a scientist!...lol) I will be running Leadville in August and couldn't be happier! I have FINALLY found the nutrition product that I have so desperately been searching for. I know a lot can happen in a 100 mile race and things don't always go as planned, but as far as nutrition and hydration and electrolyte replacement I'm golden! When you run that far the less you have to worry about the better off you are!! Thank you so much Tailwind! Love you guys!!

  16. Happy Gut!

    Posted by Rebecca on 14th Jul 2014

    I have tried several hydration and fueling products before stumbling across Tailwind at a local trail race. Since then, it is the only product I use and have recommended it to everyone that will listen. My stomach is sensitive and Tailwind does not make it hurt like the gels do and it tastes sooooo much better. I have even given it to my child when she had a stomach bug and she bounced back in no time. Thanks for a great product!

  17. tasty

    Posted by Kelly Hutchins on 14th Jul 2014

    Its really hard to say yet, I have only gone for a 2.5 hr run. My problem has been past the 4-5 hour mark, on a run. Typically don't have issues on the bike with any product, but have had some serious issues with several during my long runs or races. I can say, the taste is by FAR BETTER THAN ANY I have tasted. I wish that was all I was after, but its not. Anyway, if I can get "LIFE" to slow down, I'll get some long runs in, and ill let yall know. Thanks, Kelly

  18. Nothing compares to Tailwind in Endurance Nutrition

    Posted by Justin Radley on 14th Jul 2014

    I have been using Tailwind Nutrition for all of my long runs and races in 2014. My last races have been a 50M, 100k and 40M and I have eaten less solid food in those 3 races combined than in any other single ultra that I have completed. I have had 1 pancake, 1 GU and about a dozen dill pickle spears in those 3 races total. I have also drank 3 20 oz bottles of soda and 1 12 oz can of Red Bull. Everything else is Tailwind. I mix 1.5 scoops in my handheld and that is the perfect blend for me. The biggest difference is that I have noticed no difference in race fatigue at the end of these races. I am clearly getting everything I need and feel great at the end, hunger-wise. I have been telling everyone about Tailwind and many friends are jumping on board.

  19. Farther, Harder, Faster.

    Posted by Brian on 13th Jul 2014

    I have been using Tailwind for the last 7 mt bike rides I have been on. Every ride is a minimum 3 hours and a couple were over 4 hrs, 80 degree plus weather and no hydration or nutrition issues. The products mixes perfectly in my reservoir and simple water flush cleanup leaves no residue or smell like all the others I have had the misfortune to try. I will stop searching for the right product because I believe I have found it. Thank you for providing the perfect product for casual weekend rides and epic training grinds, Tailwind does it all and so far has not caused any distress to my sometimes delicate digestion. I love it and am recommending it to all my active friends for competition and just good nutrition to finish their activities in better condition than when they started!

  20. Multi tasking multi fuel

    Posted by Grant Maughan on 11th Jul 2014

    I have now used TW in many races & heavy training sessions including this years Marathon des Sables in Morocco, Keys 100 & only last week to complete the Badwater 146 mile solo crossing which included pulling a cart with over 200 lbs of water & gear for self sufficiency & climbing Mount Whitney to end.
    For long distance events I do not like eating food so obtaining all my calories & electrolytes from fluid is the way to go for me.
    No issues…ever.

  21. No Issues and that's a Good Thing

    Posted by Doug on 11th Jul 2014

    I'm a road cyclist averaging 600 miles a month with at least one 60-75 miler a week. Much of it is in hot/humid weather where hydration & electrolyte replacement is critical. My daughter got me Tailwinds Endurance for CMAS & I alternated it with G2 for several months. I find it superior in every way - taste, no fatigue or cramping issues and more refreshed after rides. Just ordered my second supply & plan to use Tailwinds exclusively now. Happy to support a good product and a Texas based company!

  22. Complete Fuel

    Posted by Colin GIlbertson on 11th Jul 2014

    Tailwind has kept me fueled so much easier than when I used to bring a whole pack of extra junk. Although I still feed myself on long training sessions, Tailwind has been my go to for complete maintenance. Gym, trail, carrying a big rock up a cliff, you can bet Tailwind is in my veins.

  23. Tailwind...ROCKS!

    Posted by Unknown on 11th Jul 2014

    I just started training with Tailwind a few weeks ago and love it! As a matter of fact, I accidently left my handheld bottle in the car before a long run and after the first 10 miles I could feel a considerable difference in my lack of energy and endurance. I am true believer in Tailwind. I will not run without it!

  24. Simply the Best

    Posted by Ben Hamlet on 10th Jul 2014

    Tailwind is the best endurance fuel I have used. Steady energy with no digestive issues. I have only tried the Mandarin Orange flavor. Tailwind worked great during a 12 hour ruck and during a 31+ hours adventure race. I highly recommend Tailwind.

  25. 2 scoops of Lemon is "just right"

    Posted by Matt Eggleton on 7th Jul 2014

    I've experimented with a few forms of nutrition while mountain biking and find Tailwind to work the best. I like two scoops of the lemon flavored powder per large bottle (or per 24 oz of water in my CamelBak). I have a couple more long endurance races over the next month and feel confident that nutrition/energy/hydration is one thing I don't have to reconsider. Tailwind has me covered.
