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.

Who doesn't like riding with a Tailwind? When it comes to sports drinks, we have probably tried them all. The best results that we have had have been with Tailwind. If we take Tailwind we don't need Shot Blocks, Gu, or Hammer Gels. Tailwind is all you need for any ride from 30 to 100+ miles.

I LOVE IT! It keeps me going to perform my HIIT after my strength training. I never feel worn out with this product. I even use it post-workout to help shuttle protein into my muscle cells! I add it to my homemade whey protein isolate shake.

I have only used this product a few times but like it so far. It is light in taste as advertised. I still use a gel before a big climb, but experimenting with fewer calories outside of Tailwind. I am going to use it for the first time in a longer run at a 50K with 8400 feet elevation gain. Looking forward to feeling strong!

I used Tailwind on my 100 miler this weekend and had absolutely no nutrition or hydration problems at all. I am completely 100% satisfied with this product.

I am a tried and true believer and user of the Tailwind product. Last summer i put it to the test over a 5 week period. I ran two 50 milers and one hundred miler, during august and early september (hot months in the mitten) on NOTHING but tailwind!! Not only did it power me through 100 miles and a masters win, but the taste is so mellow i drank a whole bottle after the race before i celebrated.

Saw this product being used by the Ginger Runner, Ethan.
I got curious and headed to the website and bought the 5 small packets to try it out.
Flavor- tastes great even when warm!
Ease of use- mixes clear in less than a minute (even in cold water!)
Doesn't leave residue in the bottle (I use salomon soft flasks)
Not sure if its for you? Buy the packets first. Go for a nice long run. Then decide.
Only thing needed to make it 5 stars? Make it available in Singapore/SE Asia!

I've only tried orange flavor so far but it was tasty. Not too sweet and didn't upset my stomach like gels usually do. Will definitely continue to use and recommend to my running friends who also have tummy issues with gels. Thanks for making such a fantastic product!

Excellent product for long or short runs. Use it for all activities, including cycling and swimming. Took two-20 oz bottles out for a 16 mile run last weekend, two scoops per bottle.
You can definitely taste the salt, so don't be shocked. I'm happy that it does not cause me an upset stomach like Gu gels have in the past.

No coloring, no aftertaste, not too sweet. LOVE this! I just ran a 20 miler today and I can tell the difference compared to previous hydrations I used to drink. Another Tailwind convert, me!

I been using Tailwind for several weeks now. The best electrolyte drink out there. All the flavors are great tasting. Recommend it to all endurance athletes to give it a try.

I used Tailwind Endurance Fuel today for the first time for my 8 miler and no stomach issues!! I'm really glad to have found Tailwind, thanks to a friend's recommendation. Thanks!

Received my order the other day and immediately put to use over back to back runs of 13 and 21 miles.
As advertised, mixes completely, taste great, no stomach issue, and maintained a high level of energy especially on the second day.
Have an upcoming 100 mile event in May and will be sure to be well stocked up with Tailwind Fuel.

I've been running ultra marathons for about three years now. I've tried Vitargo, Heed, and a couple other products, but always ended up with stomach issues or nausea. I ran a 50K two weeks ago and had nothing but the unflavored Tailwind and occasional aid station food. It was an absolute success. Energy levels were great the whole race, even with icy, rainy, muddy conditions!

I am very happy with this product. Tastes so good I find myself drinking it even when I'm not running/biking. Doesn't upset my stomach the way other overly sugary drinks do. Unlike Nuun it also has carbs. I just wish there was a portable version like Nuun tabs.

Love this product and will continue to use it as my 'go-to' fuel for long distance runs. I sometimes carry a single bottle with 2 scoops in it or carry a hydration bladder of straight up water and put concentrated (2.5 scoops) in a small Salomon Flask. Either way, it is easily digested and helps keep my electrolytes and fuel tank up.

I've gotten older, slower and wiser with time. Just completed my 31st consecutive Honolulu Marathon this December. Completed more road races, trail run, triathlons and ultra then you could add up without a calculator. Tried every drink, gel and magic potion ever designed to improved athletic performance know to man. What works best? Tailwind hands down! Just mix with water and go all day. Listen to your elders. Nuff said.

I have had good luck with most energy drinks, but Tailwind is by far the BEST! It mixes easy, tastes light, and doesn't leave a gooey mess in the bottle or bladder. Also, I know this is not the products intended use, but I found it works good for a hangover too :) :) :)

I love that once I start drinking Tailwind that I am almost instantly not hungry. It is very hard since I am vegan and allergic to soy so I can not have most of the fuel that people can consume during a race. This works great.
Posted by Kirk Wester on 13th Jan 2015
So far so good. I heard about this product on Ginger Runner and so I tried it. I do not like most of the products out there as they often upset my stomach. I have used this on multiple long runs with no issues. I prefer the unflavored the best as the fruit flavor of the others tends to be a little too sweet for me.
Posted by Adam Hawk Daddy Hawkins on 12th Jan 2015
I had heard about Tailwind on podcasts from TAUR and Ginger Runner. I saw other runners/athletes heaping praise on Tailwind on social media, too.
I was a bit skeptical when I saw that it mixed clear. But, after that first drink, I was happy. The taste is great! It's flavorful, but not overpowering. It's light and easy to drink.
I am very excited to experiment with Tailwind as I train for my first 50K!

I recently completed a 24 hour non-stop Standup Paddle Challenge using Tailwind as my primary source of calories and fuel. I am so impressed with this product! I used a combination of caffeinated and non caffeinated powders to supplement my energetic needs for 24 hours. I felt amazing (almost) the entire time. It tastes great! No after taste! No dry, sticky mouth that I have experienced from other electrolyte mixes. No hunger! Lots of energy! Really Really Really Happy with using Tailwind. I was able to unofficially break the Womens' 24hour distance record and plan to do it officially later this year. I will definitely stick with Tailwind Nutrition. Their Customer Service is excellent as well! quick and helpful responses to all my email questions. THANK YOU TAILWIND NUTRITION! Your Powder is the BOMB!

I have been using FirstEndurance for years for high electrolytes and low sugar sports drink. After a friend pointed me to Tailwind I gave it a try.
During the first run it felt a little heavy on the stomach but was effective. I think that was just an adjustment period. I have gone on 4-30 mile training runs since then and have used Tailwind for every one of them. It has removed the need for gels and electrolyte tablets and does a pretty good job of combating hunger.
Going forward I plan to use Tailwind for 100% of my runs and will only supplement solid food when going 50 miles or more.
Posted by Parker on 30th Dec 2014
I have used the non-caffeinated Tailwinds product on two of my longer runs. Like the ease of use, mixes well and tastes good. In the past, 2-4 Gels would not settle with my stomach and caused issues. Happy with this product and will continue to use in the future.
Posted by Andy Farina on 24th Dec 2014
Tailwind is a FANTASTIC Product!! Mixes easy every time! Tastes great and not overly sweet! Very cost effective! And has performed well in every Ultra-Marathon and long training session I have used it! That says a lot!
I highly recommend you try it. I like the Lemon but have not tried other flavors yet. Go for it!

I have been using Tailwind for a year and absolutely love it. I generally only use it for runs of 13+ miles, and have used it for multiple 50k's and a 12 hour race where I ran 46+ miles. For most of those events Tailwind was either my sole or main fuel. For the longer events I tend to mix in some blocks or soda, which is more for a mental boost than anything - the Tailwind really does keep me feeling good.
