I found what I need!
Posted by Larry Placido on 9th Apr 2013
I've tried a lot of different things from GU to Gatorade, most combination of things work when I'm not sweating and working my ass off on my mountain bike. I've had some issues with cramping and heat, so I decided to try the endurance fuel.
I tried it out on a short 2 hour group ride and it worked well for me. I then tried it out on a harder more challenging training ride. I had some issues with minor cramping and the dreaded "bonk" on this ride, but I think it was due to the fact that my legs aren't quite up to speed endurance wise and I think my mixture might have been a little on the "light" side of things at around 8 scoops in 100 oz of water mix. I think the cramping issue would go away with a stronger mix...
Overall, I am rather pleased with the results. Once I get the mix right, I think my issues will go away. I plan on buying the bigger size and recommend it to my friends as well.
I'm going on a harder more challenging ride this weekend and I'll let you know how the stronger mix works as it'll be a better test overall.
Thanks! You've my day!
The ANSWER for Gut Bomb/Rot/Nausea and helps with Muscle Cramps
Posted by Jonathan Jones on 8th Apr 2013
I've been searching for a nutrition/hydration supplement because with hard efforts over two hours I was suffering from nausea and bloating after taking in any calories. For long rides and endurance races of 50 miles or more these GI issues would shut me down and I would also suffer from muscle cramping at some point. I'm no elite athlete. Just a normal guy who loves his mountain bike and likes to put in the miles. Mix in a little racing and I'm happy. But the cramping and stomach problems were beginning to make me second guess the long events because of the suffering I knew I would have to endure. And not the good kind.
I just completed the Ouachita Challenge for the second year and I now have an apples to apples comparison with and without Tailwind. The first year was a sufferfest for sure. The muscle cramps set in after just 2 hours. I had to have a stranger pull my bike off of me at one point when both hamstrings locked up and sent me to the ground. I was in panic mode at this point. I hadn't trained for so long to not finish and cutoff times were fast approaching. I slammed food, gels, pickle juice, anything I could find because I thought calories and salt were my only hope. This led to crippling GI issues within an hour. I quit sweating at one point and just wanted to vomit. It was not my idea of fun at all. I finished but not in way that I considered respectable at all.
This year was a different story. The plan was to completely fuel with Tailwind exclusively. I used 6 scoops per 70 oz of water. I ended up consuming just over 2000 calories over the 60 mile singletrack/gravel course. Never once was I sick of what I was drinking. I had zero issues with my stomach. I was able to concentrate on the hills and battle the terrain rather than deal with the mental struggles when gut bomb is present. I mentioned that I was a cramper as well. I had zero muscle cramps this time around. Now i do believe muscle cramps for me at some point are effort related. But without the stomach issues, I was able to pace much better and never spent any time on the trail side waiting for stomach issues to pass. It was truly enjoyable from beginning to end.
Customer Service here is phenomenal. They take the time to answer any questions you may have. You won't regret trying this product. My personal favorite is Mandarin Orange but i will be trying the non-flavored powder soon as well. They were even kind enough to sponsor my state XC series. Now I have Tailwind waiting on me at all the Louisiana XC races. Spread the word.
Just Plain Works!!

Even after much pre-ride prep, I always seemed to have low energy, some dehydration and/or stomach issues whether on road or mtb. High humidity and heat where I live requires careful hydration and energy planning. I ride 100-130 miles road, 40 miles mtb per week in TX. Usually drink pickle juice before riding, then 1 bottle skratch labs per hour with GU gel. With tailwind, no comparison! No stomach issues, low energy, cramping, nada! Simple ingredients are the best! Thanks Jeff and Rich!
I always felt like I ran out of gas
Posted by Wayne on 18th Mar 2013
I really did always feel like I just ran out of gas. I tried everything. I would eat at different times prior to riding my bike, too soon and I got sick, too early it didn't do any good. There weren't may things I could eat on the trail to make up the difference. Most everything would cause me to get sick. All of that has changed with Tailwind. I mix it up and drink along the way and don't get that out of gas feeling I had before. I tried the sample packs and then ordered more. It was the best product I have tried in a long time!
I won't hit the trails without it
Posted by Jen Barker on 12th Mar 2013
Thanks to Tailwind, you won't find me in the bushes or looking for the safest place to go along the trail very often these days.
Yep, I don't worry about stomach ailments any longer. I also don't worry about eating/drinking chemicals or too much sugar that are found in many endurance training "fuels". Tailwind allows me to hit the trails for long runs with absolutely no fear of bonking or having my stomach turn on me. Tailwind is an amazing product that also has the best customer service around. I recommend Tailwind to all my ultra running pals cause it's that good!

I heard about this product in an article I was reading about last month. I really was not sure about the product because I had not heard much about it and after spending about $50 to $60 for other prerun or preworkout drinks I figured it would not hurt me to try this product. It did exactly what they said it would do, it gives you the energy you need without making you feel heavy. AWESOME PRODUCT AND COMPANY.....
Thanks - it does all it promises
Posted by Sarah on 10th Mar 2013
They deliver on their promise of easy on the stomach. I always dread doing a long training day or race only because of the terrible feeling I get from gels or sticky sweet tasting sports drinks. I have had no problem with stomach issues on my long training days over 2 hrs. The taste is not sweet and doesn't leave a bad taste in my mouth. I have not used anything else with it and have not been compromised as far as energy or power. It is a great product.

Ok so I put down a 5k as my discount race so I could buy the 4 pack so I have to write about it. This is my 2nd order and I have used Tailwinds for multiple 6-10 hour bike rides and the Goruck challenge for 10 hours. I have been training for another Goruck in April, so all long slow stuff with weight and little food, but wanted to nail a local 5k at my sons’ high school, why, it’s just for students, dad of students and alumni. The boy is a senior so my last chance for medal. So no plan or training for a 5k just a desire. So with no food since 4pm the day before, a 9:30 start one 24oz bottle before and a best time by 2 min, a respectable 21.56. Good enough for a win in the 50-60 class. Good stuff highly recommended even for short stuff.
So far great

Had to get mixture correct,little strong at first. I ride a 15 mile loop twice a week,used to stop 1/2 way and do gel,also carried water(Camelbak),and bottle with Cytomax.Now I only carry Tailwind in Camelbak,and seem to drink less,but still feel strong all thru the loop. Racing a motorcycle endurothis weekend and will try tailwind in my Camelbak,mixes easy.tastes good,great product.Recommend to everyone
Just what I needed
Posted by Chris K on 6th Mar 2013
So far so good using Tailwind for sole nutrition. Have tested out on two long runs so far... the most recent run took me 45 miles in 9.5 hours (which was a push the whole way for me) and I did not bonk at all. I even kept up with some faster runners and I attribute that solely to the fact that I had steady inflow of nutrition the entire way, without any stomach issues, or stopping to take my pack off to get at a GU or granola bar. Loved this stuff.
Favorite flavor: Lemon! (naked was good too).
