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 scoop 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 have used Tailwind now for a while and I have to say that it is easily the best drink that I have found. It keeps me going, I do not seem to get tired as fast or hungry. I hae plenty of engery, don't have to use as many gels either. I give it an A++++++. Bless you.
I will say that the Naked is my favorite, followed by Lemon, mandarin and then berry. I will be reordering. Again, thank you, I am impressed.

I ran my first 100 " Headlands 100". I was able to complete it in 29:13. I did exactly what you said to do. I have never felt better . There was one section about ten miles when I was not able
to get to my drop bags and refill the bottles. I could feel my stomach going as I switch to gu brew. So as to not be in that situation again, I filled the bottles and the backpack the next time I got to Tennessee Valley. After that it was smooth sailing.
I can't tell you how great this was. I have been telling anyone who asks me that Tailwind ruled the day. There is no way I could have done this without tailwind

Have used Tailwind since Oct 2012 for training and events. In 2013 did Vision Quest; 55 mi 11,072' 7:37, BarnBurner 104; 104 mi, 7,533', 9:51, Leadville SilverRush 50; 47.2 mi, 7,382', 6:23, Leadville Trail 100 Mtb Race; 104 mi, 11,535', 11:20. At each event I was able to push hard at end. I start with moderate effort, sense how things are working, then ratchet it up as the event unfolds. Tailwind has been the main food stuff I consumed in all these events. I'm not the fastest guy around, even in my age group, but am able to do these long events without fearing I'll run out of strength and stamina. btw, I'm 64.

Worked great for a 50km with about 6000' elevation. I used 100 calories the 1st hour and 250 / hr for the next 5. Made the aid stations go very quickly, just get your water and mix in the powder and you're back running. I used one 22 oz bottle per hr. Never did feel any bonk, no stomach issues either. If you want something simple and very effective, this is the product. Thanks Tailwind. This was my first ultra, so thanks for making it a smooth one. Go lemon flavor!

After using NuuN and GU or Shot Bloks for years, I was searching for something that wouldn't leave me feeling nauseous by the middle of a race (half marathons or marathons usually). Tailwind seems to be doing the trick. I recently completed my first 2-day cycling event as well, using only Tailwind with the exception of the lunch provided to us midday. My energy levels during the ride were steady and I experienced none of the typical crashes associated with my hypoglycemia. I've been recommending Tailwind to all of my running and cycling friends. My performance medicine physician also was quite excited to find a product that was dextrose-based to recommend to her patients. Go Tailwind!

Tailwind endurance is the best. I've tried several other products, but found this to be the best combination of medium sweetness and saltiness. It is perfect refueling especially on the hot rides of summer-and can be mixed at different strengths to adjust to the riding conditions. I've gotten rid of the big cans and use the mix in the pouch.

I am on my second order of this product. I am training for a half-marathon and it has surprised me how much energy I still have at the end of my runs. It definitely has kept me from running out of gas in th home stretch.

I was discussing nutrition for endurance events with a 24 hour race co-rider and how several well known powders and gels upset my stomach and do not keep me from cramping. I was supplementing the drinks and gels with Endurolytes to help with the cramping. The Endurolytes helped but after I swallow one it starts to trigger my gag reflex. Not fun. He mentioned that he used Tailwind and that I should try it. I ordered the 3 pack (which came as a 4 pack - thanks Tailwind) and started using the product on training rides. I ordered a larger size of my favorite (Organic Berry) and have been using it exclusively. I just finished an 88 mile fundraiser ride on a hot day. It was 93 degrees at the finish which comes after several miles of climbing. I had no stomach issues and no cramps. Tailwind is a great product and I am looking forward to an upcoming century ride.

I decided to try Tailwind after sifting though various mounds of endurance drink formulas on the interwebs. I liked the ingredient set-up with Tailwind and it was close to my current drink formula. Purchased the 25 serving bag. Lemon of course. First thoughts, flavor is great and no GI issues. I have not put it to the true test yet, but decided to get another bag and try it in one of my local races. We will see how things pan out, but so far so good!

I've been using Tailwind for a couple of months for training rides, today was the first "real" test. Had 6 24 oz bottles with 3 scoops each (and a few cookies at a rest stop) and I finished the century strong, hydrated, no cramps (which I usually get afterwards) and ready for more. You passed with flying colors!

Been using TW for over a year now. Agrees with my system and gives me the energy needed to help keep me going. Better than any of the larger companies who sell in the big stores!!

I can't drink the sugary drinks like Gatorade, Heed, Cytomax...etc. I was able to drink Tailwind during Copper Harbor for almost 3 hours with no stomach disorders. Its been a long time since I actually drank everything I had with me.

Used it 3 Times in 100 Plus deg, won 3 times. what more can i say!

We filled the van with six of us, for 200 miles and 33 hours. Tailwind kept us rolling.

As one who has a pretty sensetive stomach and deals with a fair amount of GI issues in daily life... I can say without a doubt that after a solid year of use I've suffered no 'Gut Bombs' with Tailwind. It is by far my favorite on the bike fuel. Thanks so much for bringing this product to the market.

My Wife and I do a lot of cycling and yours is the first sports drink without the sweet taste of the others. Great product!

I used Tailwind lemon for two different 30k trail races - held at night - during the worst of the Texas heat.
I drank about 6-8 oz every 20 minutes and it gave me the energy to complete these races - even though they ended close to midnight.
At about the 3 hour point I tend to get thirsty for some plain water but up until that point I am good.
I have experienced stomach cramps and bloating at about the 3.5 hour point but I am not sure why.
I am recommending Tailwind to all my endurance friends with tricky tummies.

As with many endurance athletes, I've tried many types of nutrition; from gels, to homemade mixtures, to the latest fad diet. If there's one thing that I like most about Tailwind, it's that it works. Period. Everything I need can be mixed into a handheld bottle, and I never have to think about anything else. The taste is palatable, even at the late stages of a race or training run when it's tough to get anything down. I've found my perfect endurance fuel, and it's called Tailwind.

In our 28:35:49 finish of the Haliburton 100, my running partner and I stuck with Tailwind the entire time. I had no cramping - no signs of any dehydration. I did drink a little extra water on two cups of coffee, but other than that, Tailwind was it!!!
So happy I found it.
Posted by Jim on 11th Sep 2013
Nice light flavor with a clean aftertaste. Mixes into water quite easily. I've been using this as recovery drink for the last two weeks and have no complaints. I look forward to using Tailwind during an upcoming half marathon. Keep up the good work!

I never had stomach issues with GUs, gels, etc., but they were so inconvenient and tended to cause fluctuations in energy (I could time when I would get the kick from a GU to the minute). With Tailwind there is a constant flow of energy, with no lagging or spikes, since you are constantly sipping it. Mixes very easily and stays incorporated, tastes great and keeps you full and hydrated. All the flavors are great but I prefer the Berry or unflavored varieties.

I used Tailwind yesterday for my 16 miles. As a slo-mo runner that distance takes me almost 3 hours. I used almost 3 bottles during the run and never got the echo ears that I get when my blood sugar gets low or I get dehydrated. Thanks!!
Posted by Dianne on 5th Sep 2013
Very easy on my stomach. Mild taste. I am totally off the gu/gatorade/bars. When I run with my group, they are surprised that I don't need anything else. It is really all you need for an endurance event or training. So glad I found this product.

No gut bombs, no bonks, no nausea, and PR's at every race this year. Really couldn't ask for a better, or more accurately advertised product.
I know this is already in the works, but caffeine would be a welcome addition.
Posted by Blair Baldwin on 3rd Sep 2013
Tailwind is a solid product. It's allowed me to simplify my ultra running fueling and center it around one product. I do not get the washed out or bloated feelings I experienced when using gels as a primary fuel source and enjoy a more consistent, steady energy levels with my running. I have also enjoyed a higher level of mental clarity deeper into longs runs. Thanks!
