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.

The berry flavored Tailwind is the only nutrition I used for a trail duathlon on a Sunday and a colonoscopy the next day. Raced hard and recovered well with only Tailwind for a full day and a half. It's the only product I'll use going forward.

I am very pleasantly surprised with TWN so far. After 3 long mountain training (18 - 31 miles) runs TWN has done the job for me. I was looking for something to keep my stomach happy for my up coming MMT 100 and I think I have found my answer. The real test will ultimately be in May, but I am very happy so far. I'm going with 1.5 to 2 scoops per 20oz bottle. For me each bottle has lasted 8 - 10 miles here in the cold/cool temps of the late winter in VA. I love the way TWN mixes and is very easy to carry small baggies in my pack to refill and mix with water. Like I said - so far so good!

First time using this product was during LA Marathon 2014. The rule is never to try anything new during an event that you have not used during training. I took my chances, and I think personally helped me finished strong. Heat was up to low 80s in this event. I had been training in cold weather, so this really helped me to finish without feeling nauseated, dehydrated, or depleted. No GI issues, and very light in nature. Just like you are drinking water. This will be a MUST for me for long runs especially during the summer.

While in training and my bottles full of Berry Flavored Tailwind I got a boost of energy throughout my run. I have energy during the whole run and feel great in the process. I have no GI issues with this product like other products have given me.

Didn't care for the taste the first time I tried it, but have tried it several times on long runs since and it's getting better. Seems to work ok for me. Have used it on 25 mile runs and feeling good during and after.

Used it 2 x on 20 mile runs very pleased! Great mild flavor. Will be using it as major source of fuel on a 50 miler in 2 weeks. would highly recommend it!

I have tried bars, gels, mixes, and combination of all of these to fuel my long runs and triathlons. I now can say without a doubt tailwind is all I need. No more bars, gels, or pills. Try it for yourself!

Great product gives you the edge.

I am kicking some tail with some tailwind on board! And I am 55 today!!
No gut bomb, no sweet mucous mouth aftertaste.

I purchased this product after reading and hearing many great things. It is everything that I read it is. I am training for my first 50K and needed something better than what I had been using. I have had troubles in past marathons with cramping and wanted to avoid that in my upcoming race. I have used Tailwind on all of my long training runs and it works great. I feel great, have tons of energy, and never get any kind of stomach issue.
I will continue to use this product going forward as I have many trail races in my future.

In the past, I have had difficulty maintaining my energy level on 3 + hour mountain bike rides. I have tried many different drink mixes, gels, bars, etc. Tailwind is definitely my favorite. I had to experiment with the concentration a little, but now that I know how much to consume, I don't feel hungry or drained even after 3 hours. I don't supplement with any other food until after the ride, either. As a bonus, it encourages you to consume more water since your energy source and water source are one and the same. With other drink mixes, I have experienced some stomach discomfort. Not the case with Tailwind.

Used it for just a little over 2 hours. No g.i. issues, tastes great, and no cramping. I'm just getting back on the bike in preparation for IM Boulder. The longer rides will be the deciding factor. I have high hopes for this product!

I recently ordered Tailwind's orange flavored product. I am impressed that it performs as advertised. It leaves no "after-taste" nor does it create that upset/bulky stomach feeling. My rides average 2 1/2 hours. I generally use two 21 oz. water bottles and two 24 oz. bottles in temperature above 85 degrees F. This product fits my riding nutritional needs perfectly. Additionally, it frees-up a back pocket on my jersey, giving me more room to put gloves, leg and arm warmers, wind jackets...
It Taste Great and is Less Filling.

Love it. Great taste. My new go to source for fuel.
Posted by Janice on 26th Feb 2014
Works great and no gut bombs! Will be using it on my first marathon March 2nd and have been training with it along the way :)

I've recently started using the single use packages to try and see how the different flavors stack up to one another. So far there isn't a single flavor I don't like! The first time my long run came up in my training plan I opted to try the caffeinated Tailwind to see how much more energy it would give me. I have to admit it truly kept me going and fueled the entire run. I can't think of one bad thing to say about this product. It truly works!

I've been using Tailwinds for 6 months now and I truly feel the difference it makes on long bike rides and long runs.

Going into my first 100mi race I thought i had my nutrition dialed in but only 50 miles into the race my stomach came un-glued. When I picked up my pacer I was in pretty bad shape, but thankfully she is a tailwind athlete and got me drinking tailwind. I basically ran the last 50 mi on nothing but tailwind and completed my first 100 miler in 22 hrs. Thanks so much for a great product, I will never run again without Tailwind.

I'm a runner who can't seem to down more than 3 gels during a long run without suffering from stomach issues. A friend recommended Tailwind and I figured I would give it a shot. This stuff was perfect. I tried it on my 18 and 20 mile runs and never felt better. I'm a slow runner, so doing 18 to 20 miles normally keeps me on the road between 2 1/2 to 3 hours. I used Tailwind as my only source of nutrition, and never felt dehydrated or fatigued. Additionally, I felt extremely well after both runs and didn't feel nauseated like I do after taking gels. I highly recommend this product and look forward to testing it out during my 50K.

Thanks for the personal service and the complimentary trial pack of Raspberry Buzz. I took a big chance changing nutrition strategy without testing your product, but I gave it a shot based on all the ultrarunner testimonials. It really paid off! I ran a 100K race this past Saturday using nothing but Tailwind (naked) for nutrition. Two scoops every hour did the trick. The only time I ran into a bit of queasiness was when I took in too much, too quickly, so I supplemented with plain water. I didn't experience any highs or lows, and no bonk. It was great not to have a thick, sticky, hard to swallow mess I had with the other nutrition products. A big thanks... I've finally found a go-to source for ultrarunning nutrition.

I have used Tailwind Nutrition for both my 50Ks and didn't need any other Nutrition I have two more 50Ks and a 50 miler between now and May 10 th and I will defiantly be using Tailwind

I am a distance runner and as of the last few months, I had been having great amounts of trouble with solid nutrition such as GUs, Cliffs, etc. I read a blog after the Houston Marathon this January about a runner who had used tailwind during the race, and not had any GI issues and thought that I would give it a shot. Long story short, I raced the Austin Marathon this last weekend (after testing tailwind out on a few long runs leading up to it) and had no trouble whatsoever with hitting the wall or GI issues. The lemon and orange flavors are especially tasty and light, and I don't feel loaded down by them. Beats Gatorade any day of the week and has the nutrition that I needed to complete 26.2. Thanks for this product and looking forward to using it and representing it! If you ever come up with an ambassador program, I would love to be a part of it. Thanks again!

I used tailwind in a recent 50k race as my sole source of nutrition as was pleased with the results. I felt good and had no stomach issues.
