    Love this stuff

    We mostly use the non caffeinated tailwind but this is great for morning events when we need that extra little kick. Prevents bonking and doesn't tear up our guts. The perfect mt bike partner for us.

    Need better flavors

    Posted by Megan on 29th Jul 2019

    Not impressed with the caffeinated flavors, I really don’t like the tropical buzz but the raspberry is a bit better (have not tried green tea) I really like the flavor of the non caffeinated orange and wish orange came in a caffeinated version. wishing I would have had samples before ordering 50 serving bags.

    [Tailwind Response]: Thanks for your feedback. The challenge in developing caffeinated flavors is the inherent bitterness of caffeine - and neither the mandarin orange flavor (nor Naked which has been a huge request from customers) works with that attribute. We just released Colorado Cola and hopefully that will be the answer for you! As for trying out flavors, you can always order the 7 assorted stickpack bundle or order the stickpacks individually.

    Tailwind is my go to fuel for ultras. I have been using it for over 5 years now. Tropical buzz is my favorite!

Caffeinated Endurance Fuel


Caffeine kick!

Caffeinated Tailwind meets all your calorie, hydration, and electrolyte needs just like you'd expect, plus it adds 35mg of caffeine per 100 calories. Caffeine is proven to significantly enhance high-intensity and endurance performance.* Raspberry Buzz, Green Tea Buzz, and Tropical Buzz available in 50 and 30 serving bags, as well as 200 calorie stick packs.

Nutrition Facts

  • Caffeine boost when you need that extra kick
  • 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 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.

Usage is similar to regular Tailwind except that we recommend limiting continuous use to 6 hours or less to avoid building up a high concentration. Each scoop contains 100 calories and 35mg of caffeine. 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.
