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.

Having been around endurance sports all my life I have tried a lot of the industries "best" and this one is hands down the best i have tried. Do your self a favor and trash the stuff in your cabinets and put TAILWIND in place of it.

Turned onto Tailwind by the forum imtbtrails.com. The nutrition thread has turned into a Tailwind thread. Tried it for a 40 mile 5,000 foot single track ride on Thanksgiving morning and have not looked back. No pills, no gu, no chews, no bars, no nothing since that morning. Needed nutrition for a 12 hour solo and this is it! Love the naked flavor... just a hint of citrus. This is my third order...

I'm training for a marathon and have used Tailwind for all my long runs. Great taste and keeps me feeling strong with no upset stomach. Love it and highly recommend this for any endurance training!

Great flavor, no gut bomb and no chews getting stuck in my teeth or nasty thick gels.
It is great getting electrolytes and fuel while simply remembering to drink a little water on a run!
Even better ... no crazy artificial coloring to stain bottles or hydration pack bladder.

Great product and outstanding customer service! I've been using Tailwind as my go-to fuel for both short runs and long (50K+) endurance events, and have never had any stomach issues whatsoever. This is, in my opinion, the best electrolyte and calorie replacement supplement on the market.

Tailwind came through for me. 24 hours as my primary source of nutrition during the WTM. Still had energy at the end. No GUT issues at all. IT was PERFECT!

I used Tailwind this past weekend for the first time during a marathon. The last 3 marathons I ran I suffered from muscle cramps . Tailwind worked great ! I did not get any cramps and I did not bonk at the end. I was a little concerned about not using any Gu or solids so I took them with me. By mile 12 realizing that I felt good and had not taken any Gu at that point so I decided to trust Tailwind by itself and it did not disappoint me . Also it was easy on my stomach. No GI issues. Can't wait for the next race.

I have been using Tailwind Nutrition for almost a year now and it has been a life changer for me as far as my running is concerned. It has propelled me to start running ultra distances since I no longer have the sick feeling from all of those gels and chews when I get to the later stages of a race. I used to think, "How will I ever be able to go farther than 26.2 if I feel this way at mile 22?" With Tailwind Nutrition I now think, "Let's push the limits and see how far I can go." Now that I don't have to think about my fueling, as long as my legs are up to an adventure, we go for it!! If you want fuel that works, look no further than Tailwind Nutrition. It's all you need, all day, really!!!

While I wont name, names, I have tried the many major brands for hydration / fuel. MY activities involve cycling 100+ miles per weak, long distant running events 30-50K. I found some of the other major competitors;while providing a sodium day before pre load or day of hydration, just did not give me the needed energy to push harder/longer. I would incorporate gels/other products in addition to these hydration formula. Then I tried Tailwind as a all in one. It works! For me, no bonking,needed less and/or no other supplements/depending upon distances. I would say give it a try for a month under various conditions. Its a winner for me and hope they continue to expand there product line!! Go Long-Go All-In-With-Tailwind ( yes I just thought of this slogan for TW ) and no-I have no affiliation or ties to tailwind/or any sponsor related to tailwind

Got me through my first road marathon! I was a bit surprised at how much I like the unflavored type. Just a hint of sweetness and no mineral taste. Can't wait to try it out on my longer trail runs. I think, though, the true test will be in the hot months. We'll see. . .

After 34 years of endurance sports Tailwind is the best product I have ever used. It allows me to train harder, longer and race at a high level. I am thankful for Tailwind and the great staff.

I've recently switched to Tailwind and it is working great for me. I like not having to fuss with sticky gels, and it's super convenient to have my fuel and hydration all in one. For most training runs I only use Tailwind, and on longer endeavors I add some solid food. I'm still figuring out the best way to carry and mix for races. For my last race I carried it in concentrated form and only had to grab water at aid stations. That seems to work pretty well. Great product!

Running in Florida is miserable. I regularly experience cramps and headaches, even when slugging back straight H20. Tailwind helps put some pep in my step, and keeps me feeling strong.

I used Tailwind recently in a 50K and it lived up to it's billing. No side stitches, sore belly, nothing. Kept me going the entire day!
Thanks Tailwind for the awesome customer service and I told everyone about it!

One of my good trail running buddies told me about your product and from the first time I tried it it has become my "jet fuel". No more wondering about what to eat when,no sticky wrappers to dispose of or gunk to make you gag or get stuck in your teeth. I really like that this product mixes easily, tastes good and has no artificial coloring. I also really like the cheerful, encouraging and personalized messages that accompany the package. Thanks to all of you at Tailwind.

Quite frankly one of the best, hassle free products out there for athletes be it long distance or short. Having tried a number of different products, this is easily our number 1 nutrition for the long runs or bike rides without worrying about getting muscle cramps due to deficiencies as a result of electrolyte loss and no worries of upsetting the stomach either. Happy muscles, happy stomach, makes a happy athlete :)

Just completed my first 50k in the southern mountains of Korea. And what an experience it was~! Tailwind fueled me for the entire 50k. There were no GI distress issues and the wondrous mix of Tailwind help me avoid "hitting the wall". The berry mix tastes great and doesn't leave any sort of film in my mouth or my water bottles.
I carried 2 soft flasks with the recommended mix of Tailwind and a 24 oz water bottle with strong concentration of Tailwind. At CP 2 & 3 I simply partially filled up my soft flasks with the strong concentration and topped them off with water. This allowed me to carry less by not having to carry dry mix in little baggies.
I recommend users to fine tune the powder to water ratio in relation to the endurance of their workouts. It is incredible how quickly Tailwind dissolves.
I look forward using Tailwind Nutrition products for years to come. I recommend it to all my friends and colleagues.

My daughter and I have been using Tailwind for competitive paddle board races over the last two years. It's really helped our performance and eliminated the "bonk" for races or endurance events 1.5 to 6 hours. We've crossed Monterey Bay, Maui to Molokai and Molokai to Oahu with Tailwind for nutrition and hydration. Food supplement was greatly reduced or eliminated. Order it! You'll be impressed with its performance and how quickly its delivered to your door!

I recently heard of Tailwind Nutrition and decided to purchase some for fueling for my second marathon. It was magic! I didn't get gut rot like I normally do when fueling with other electrolyte drinks and gels. I didn't feel any signs of dehydration like I did during my first marathon. The best part was PRing by 35 minutes! Thank you, Tailwind!

Very, very happy with Tailwind! Having been a faithful user of another product for many years, I'm happier now, not to be mixing so many at once, in order to get what I want. Tailwind does it all!

My search for a trail running drink has ended. I first tried Tailwind because it was the beverage at my next 100. I loved it for training and have used only Tailwind for both training and racing ever since. Tailwind mixes up easily at any concentration, and I don't seem to get tired of the taste. Each time I clean out my reservoir I spend less and less time cleaning it. I cannot believe that just a rinse is enough, after years of finding black stuff in the hose and reservoir corners.
It's only a slight overstatement to say that Tailwind has transformed my running.

This was recommended by a friend but I went with a cheaper option but eventually bought tailwind. It is worth the money and it works as advertised.

Tailwind has been a Godsend. No more bonking. Allows for consistent calorie intake without the worry of spacing a gel when lost in thought during a race. Thanks Tailwind!
