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. Marked Difference in Long Run 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 5th Oct 2016)

    Tailwind was recommended to me by two coworkers who are currently training for a marathon. I finally gave in and tried it. What a huge difference in how I felt throughout the whole run. I won't do any more long training sessions without it. I can't wait to see how it feels in a race now.

  2. The Real Deal 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 5th Oct 2016)

    About a year ago I guess someone first suggested Tailwind to me. They make a pretty bold claim in terms of being the ONLY nutrition you need on a run. But about 90% of the time it's true. I've covered all manner of races up to 50 miles with just Tailwind. Even though I still typically supplement every run with some type of additional nutrition, it's nice to know I'm getting what I need if I'm disciplined about getting some Tailwind into my body. Tailwind for life.

  3. Sold! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 3rd Oct 2016)

    I am a large runner - 6'6 and 230. I sweat tremendously in the Virginia humidity especially during the summer months and it's tough finding the right balance of nutrition for my workouts. For years I have messed around with different hydration/fueling combinations to find something that worked for me. It took me a few long runs to figure out the right amount of Tailwind for my needs (7 scoops for a 70 liter pack) but once I did - WOW! I am sold. No more fumbling around with different types of gels and chews. I have tried 3 of the flavors, lemon, naked, and caffeinated Tropical buzz. They all taste great to me so I really don't have a preference. Just an amazing product! Highly recommended!

  4. Tailwind powered! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 3rd Oct 2016)

    I've been a tailwind user for almost two years now. Opening an order and seeing a personalized package and encouraging note is awesome! The sample packet they include is a great way to try a new flavor or pass on to a friend that has yet to experience Tailwind. It has fueled me on multiple endurance events!

  5. The Best ! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 2nd Oct 2016)

    I have been using Tailwind for over 3 years now and it has proved to be the best endurance product available. I could not perform in races or train the way I do without it. I ride 500 miles per week average and race up to 1000 miles with Tailwind being my main nutritional source. Amazing product, thank you !

  6. no busque mas 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 27th Sep 2016)

    Hago MTB y me gusta hacer carreras de larga duración, (50 a 70 millas) comencé a usar Tailwind hace más de 2 años, al principio tenía algunas de dudas acerca de usar solo una forma de nutrición durante las carreras pero hasta ahora no he tenido ningún problema.
    Tailwind es un producto de excelente calidad


  7. Great Product! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 25th Sep 2016)

    I love the Mandarin Orange flavor-not too sweet, no lingering aftertaste! Highly recommended!

  8. A Must 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 24th Sep 2016)

    Great product and important part of my training and racing. Simplifies things and keeps you going for hours with no stomach issues. No need for anything else.

  9. Orange is a winner! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 21st Sep 2016)

    This product, this company is the best! I would still be choking down 2 gels an hour on long runs. I am grateful to just drink my fuel!

  10. Finally, something helping me rack up the miles! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 21st Sep 2016)

    For years I struggled to increase my running mileage due to in adequate hydration causing muscle tears. Since using Tailwind the past 2 months I've been able to successfully train for my first 1/2 marathon! I couldn't be more pleased with product helping me reach my goals and the outstanding customer support!

  11. Great Product! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 20th Sep 2016)

    I really enjoyed the lemon flavor! It is light and I never got tired of it. I recently did an event with temperatures in the 90's and Tailwind truly was all I needed. Thanks Tailwind for making a superior product!

  12. I love it 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 19th Sep 2016)

    I had been using the small packets for long training runs and in races and finally decided to get the bigger package to use for training runs and save the small ones for races. This is so handy. I've been drinking this stuff since my first ultramarathon last summer and it just works. No stomach problems and just feel good all day long.

  13. It's all you need 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 19th Sep 2016)

    Used tailwind exclusively for the Kodiak 100 in Big Bear, CA. It worked great keeping my energy up with no stomach issues helping me complete my first 100 on my first try. Definitely using tailwind for the next one.

  14. Your Performance boost is HERE 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 15th Sep 2016)

    This is a great product for replenishing your body during your activity with the electrolytes you need to keep going. I use it for both trail running and for high intensity cardio workouts. You can push yourself farther and faster for longer. No side effects or GI issues for me. , I love it!

  15. Feeling the Tailwind love 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 14th Sep 2016)

    Ad I have been for some time now, purchased the Tailwind fuel for my endurance ultra running events and training. Although, I'm very happy to see TW is also sponsoring our Trail Monster Running series events.
    I continue to use TW, because it works for me. Keep up the great work that you do and supplying a quality product that you take pride in.

  16. Winning with Tailwind! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 10th Sep 2016)

    After not being able to run for 3 years after my head on collision in Oct. 2011, I worked hard to get back to running again! I started jog/walking Sept. 2014 and met some Ultra runners and began a new journey to build myself up to handle that high of mileage! By Feb. 2015 I ran my first 50k and it was amazing as I was hooked! One thing that was needed, a way to stay hydrated with something that wouldn't upset my gut! I was blessed to find out about Tailwind by Aug 2015 and ran my first 100M the Cool Moon 100, no gut issues, tasted great, moisturizes my mouth and 1st female, 4th overall! I have since been using Tailwind and loving it while winning Chrystal Springs 50k Jan. 2016 and Cool Moon 100k Aug 2016! With Tailwind I don't have to worry about much of anything else, except for staying upright!!

  17. Mystery solved 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 9th Sep 2016)

    I do many endurance events (trails, open road, IMs) and before TW I struggled with nutrition and stomach issues. Since I've started with TW over the last year plus I do not suffer from GI and have gone on to my strongest year yet. Here is to many more finishes with TW. Keep up the good work!! (ps. like the personalized touch)

  18. Amazing Stuff! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 7th Sep 2016)

    I started using Tailwind Nutrition this summer. I was running a 50K on the hottest day of the year. The heat was record breaking and I had no GI issues, no cramping, no trouble at all. My training was less than it should have been due to family issues and I was worried about the event. I saw runners much more prepared than I was suffer from the heat, cramps, bathroom issues and no stamina. I attribute my success to Tailwind.

  19. Breeze in a Bottle 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 6th Sep 2016)

    Nothing like a nice tailwind while on a bike.

    While the breeze is not always cooperative, a bottle full of Tailwind (Berry is my favorite) slipped into the bottle cage always makes the ride smoother. I don't leave home without it.

    A truly fine product that comes with truly fine customer service.

  20. It's even good when it's warm 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 5th Sep 2016)

    I couldn't believe the claim that it would stay tasty all day. Nothing can taste good after four+ hours, especially when it's been sloshing around in a hydration pack, right? Wrong. The light flavor of Tailwind never gets sickly sweet or turns my stomach, even when warm. I have a favorite flavor (lemon), but have tried all of the flavors and could definitely use any of them during a ride or run. I'm a triathlete who uses Tailwind in training and during races and I have no complaints. So much better than the typical drinks and it mixes so easily that refilling my bottles on a bike course is a breeze.

  21. Great product, lousy bag closure. 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 2nd Sep 2016)

    I do find your product to live up to it's claims. Still working on the proper proportions so as not to overly concentrate the mixture.
    The product packaging, specifically the bag closure design is worse than lousy. Pleas improve! Thank you.

    [Tailwind Response]: Thanks for the feedback, and yes we are working on that ziploc closure. Sorry about the frustration you experienced!

  22. Badwater Crew Fueling 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 2nd Sep 2016)

    I used Lemon Tailwind while I crewed and paced the Badwater 146 Crossing -- running from Death Valley to the top of Mt. Whitney. So did the runner I was pacing. It kept us both happy and fueled in 120 degree temps. Thank you!!

  23. The Ultimate Test 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 31st Aug 2016)

    During my runs I typically eat real food. Pizza, hamburgers, potatoes, pancakes... you name it. And I've never had any problems. When I read about TailWind I wanted to put it through the ultimate test (in my opinion). I ordered the variety pack of single servings and waited to try it during the first miles of a marathon. Never had it before. I randomly pulled flavors out of my waistbelt every hour, read the flavor and dumped it in my bottle. I finished the race feeling better than any other race. My energy levels were consistent during the entire race and I never had a flavor that I didn't like. Excellent stuff!

  24. I'm so glad I found Tailwind! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 31st Aug 2016)

    Tailwind endurance fuel is such a wonderful product. I do a lot of running and obstacle races using Tailwind is my water. Tailwind has just the right amount of each ingredient to keep me going. The powder dissolves quickly and tastes great.

  25. Keeps me going! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on 29th Aug 2016)

    Tailwind is one of the first products that can use and not have to use other fuel sources. It tastes great cold or warm. I run in Houston and liquids don't stay cold for long. I can still drink this at room temp and it does not cause cramping or other GI issues. I highly recommend this product for marathon training.
