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.

After experimenting with every gel, cube and other shape and nature of product, individually and in combination, I have found in Tailwind a product that provides both fuel and electrolytes that I can take while hydrating and that creates no stomach distress. It has propelled this older runner through marathons and half marathons without fail.

Tailwind keeps you fueled without bothering with bars and gels that fill up your pocket and get warm and gooey. True its claim, I have never had any gastric distress. Nor have I ever bonked. Good product, fast shipping.

I don't normally write reviews, but Tailwind deserves a pat on the back! It keeps me going on my runs over an hour, and has eliminated the need to worry about fueling for my races.

I was using other products when I began training and they kept making me sick.
My friend Carl recommend Tailwind. He said he had been using it for quite a while and he never got sick plus it provided everything he needed for his training and events.
I placed an order and began using it during my training and during the St George Ironman 70.3.
I feel better since I began using Tailwind and have not gotten sick. Not only does it help with nutrition but I stay hydrated as well.
I have recommended Tailwind to my Team Members and they have made the switch also.
Great product at an affordable price.
Swim, Bike, Run and be happy!

I'm a true believer in Tailwind. I particularly enjoy the Mandarin Orange and am currently using it for my ultra training. Working great!

I first had the opportunity to try Tailwind at my first 50k. I was struggling at the 25k mark and a fellow runner put this in my handheld and gave me another serving for the next aid station. As the headline reads, it changed my whole race. Within a few miles, I already felt better. Most of my problems were due to " gel gut", which was my main source of calories. Since that race, I have been using Tailwind for training and will continue to use it for all future races. I have used two of the other "big name" drink mixes and none have compared to the taste and simplicity of being able to use Tailwind for all aspects of my nutrition in training. I still utilize some solids (fruits and other aid station fare) but I think that is just something to do...not something I HAVE to do. Great product and I hate that I didn't use it sooner!

I bought a large bag of Tailwind Beery flavor. I love the taste! It's super easy on my digestive system. I tried it out for the first time this past weekend at a Spartan Beast race. It was a super hilly and technical race a little over 13 miles with 35 obstacles. I filled my pack up with Tailwind and Kangen water and nothing else. I finished the race in around 5.5 hrs and not only did I have plenty of energy I was not even hungry once during the entire duration of the race. Can't say enough about how wonderful Tailwind is. No complaints!

I have been using Tailwinds for a month for triathlon training. It's the best! I don't have to worry about adding electrolytes, salt or anything extra! Its perfect for me!! I even use it for short rides & runs! I highly recommend "Tailwinds!"

The Cohutta 100 has been my epic ride of choice for the past 5 years. During the years I have tried it all; Whole foods, competitors endurance powders, and combinations of the two. After a subpar performance last year compared to my riding buddies (who were running tailwind) I thought that I would give it a try this year. I can honestly say that Tailwind helped me achieve my fastest time ever all wile keeping me hydrated and fueled. I used to be a skeptic, but now I'm a believe - Thanks Tailwind!

Excellent taste and very easy on the stomach. I get my calories, water and electrolytes all in one package for long runs. No longer setting reminders on my watch to take a gel , with Tailwind I have just been sipping as per thirst and haven't had a single issue

I needed a product to fuel my long runs and I found it!!! From the first time I tried it, it gave me the endurance I needed to take my long distance running to the next level! I also find it refreshing after a short run!

I have been using Tailwind in my training for only two weeks now and already i see the difference. It is absolutely amazing. It's so easy to mix, taste great, and has everything I need. Calories, salt, electrolytes....it simplifies my ultra-running nutrition in to one great product. So glad i found this product just as I started my training for my next 100 mile trail race. Thanks Tailwind!

I was looking for a kinder and gentler endurance fuel and Tailwind fits the bill. Was't sure until I tried it out on my first 50 miler and now it's my go to fuel. No more searching and more running.

I have been through 6 bags of the berry flavor and still love it! I had some stomach issues with other products, top brands in fact, but Tailwind is just easy. Try it if you have never and see for yourself. You won't be disappointed.

I drink mostly water. I have a hard time with the taste of sports drinks,gels, etc. I ran a 30 mile ultra this spring-not my first but as a training run in prep for a 100 mile race in the fall after a hiatus from ultras. During that race I experienced nausea for about half the race. I had fueled with water and regular food. I decided to try Tailwind on my next run-15 miles. I didn't experience nausea. The taste however was like stale water-just an odd not fresh taste that made me not want to drink. I don't think I could have handled drinking it for an extended time. I'm not sure it was a long enough run to decide if it was good as fuel. I just know I read reviews looking for something that can fuel and hydrate that has no taste. So far I've come up short.

Best endurance fuel I've ever used! I love the flavor choices. I use Tailwind daily and love how light and easy it is on my stomach. I suggest just trying it once & you'll be hooked!

Tailwind has become my favorite calorie choice. I really like being able to drink calories and not have to think about gels. And on shorter runs when the pace gets raging I can drink tailwind without any gut problems. The naked flavor is my favorite , just enough sweetness to get by. Amen to the creators of this sweet nectar!

A friend recommended I try Tailwind and I love it! It provides steady nutrition on as I run and doesn't drop me afterward, like the energy chews used to do. Also no gut bomb :) I give it two thumbs and two big monkey toes up!

I've had loads of trouble pushing too hard late in a race and having leg muscle spasms that cramp me up. Tailwind really helps cut those out. A great product. I'm a big fan of the barely there taste. Not looking for huge syrupy flavor when I've been running for hours.
Amanda Walker (Submitted on 10th Apr 2016)
I used only tailwind as my hydration and ate only orange slices at aid stations for a 17 mile race, and I felt great! Before I would use shot-blocks, some fruit, and water/gatorade but would always get hungry and sort crash on energy at the end of a long run. I highly recommend this product.

I heard about this product from a running friend. I have issues with products and the "gut bomb". She recommended this product for that. I tried it and used it for my first marathon training. It helped tremendously. I just got into the lottery for a second marathon this year. I plan on using it again. I also use it for all my runs over 5 miles. I never feel exhausted and can usually push even farther than I planned to run most days. Thank you!!!

I'm sponsored by another supplement company that doesn't make an all-in-one product and I needed to find a way to simplify my nutrition, salt, and hydration when I run across the Grand Canyon and back. While I love the products that I get for free, I'll happily pay to use Tailwind on my upcoming R2R2R run; it simply is that good. I love the lemon flavor, and look forward to trying more flavors in the future! Thank you!

Before getting a big bag I ordered a sample size of each flavor. I was really fond of the berry flavor and ordered a medium bag of it. This stuff is great! It is the perfect fuel for mountain bike racing. I also use it during the bike leg for triathlons. I love not having to deal with gels or trying to consume solid foods, Tailwind is all that you need!

I started using this during triathlon trainings and races based on a recommendation from my coach. I sweat quite a bit and so keeping my electrolyte levels in check has been a big challenge for me. It has by far the best product I've used.

A couple endurance athlete friends recommended Tailwind when I was having problems with my gut during races- the fuel I was using couldn't handle the intensity of race days, and in retrospect I was having a hard time keeping my glycogen levels topped off; I would feel light-headed despite having plenty of calories on-board. I use tailwind for about half of my calories for endurance training and races. My gut and energy level feel great, and I've been able to sustain intensity during 12 hour and 50 mile races. My favorite flavor is lemon- it's not too sweet and the lemon flavor is minimal.
