The Perfect Way to Discover Tailwind

Tailwind single servings are perfect for fueling on the go and recovering from a workout. Our Starter Kit is a great way to try all 8 Tailwind Endurance Fuel flavors plus our 3 Tailwind Rebuild Recovery flavors. All you need, all day. Really. 

For during your activity, just tear open one of our Endurance Fuel single servings and pour into a water bottle for 200 calories of Tailwind goodness, no mess, no fuss. After your workout, follow it with one of our Rebuild Recovery single serving to feel better faster. 

Endurance Fuel for during exercise
  • 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 residue or science experiments!
  • All natural: Crystal clear with no dyes, preservatives or 4-syllable pixie dust.
Rebuild Recovery for after exercise
  • Replenish glycogen stores: contains the right kinds and amounts of carbohydrates to restore your energy after a hard workout
  • Rebuild muscles: perfectly complete protein based on a patent-pending mathematical model to rebuild damaged muscle tissue and mitochondrial protein
  • Rehydrate and restore electrolytes: sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium to restore electrolyte balance

Endurance Fuel: each single serving contains 200 calories. Mix contents with 20-24oz (750mL) of cool, clean water. Give it a shake or two, and go! Sip regularly for steady energy, electrolytes, and hydration. For longer grunts, try our medium and large sizes.

Rebuild Recovery: mix a single serving with 16oz (500mL) of water. Drink within the first 30 minutes after exercise. For longer or more intense workouts, follow with another packet of Tailwind Rebuild in the following 30 minutes.

    What a game changer

    Posted by E.C on 14th Sep 2020

    Tailwinds products really changed the game for my long distance runs. I can be sure that when the race is done I won't be celebrating in the bathroom....

    Great way to pick your flavor!

    Stick packs are super convenient to stash around various packs and whatnot to insure I always have something better than water to drink. It's nice to have a mix of flavors and also a mix of caffeinated and non caffeinated.

    Great Product!

    Posted by Unknown on 31st Aug 2020

    I read about Tailwind in a running magazine and figured I would give it a try. Tailwind will now be my go to product for any extended outdoor activity (runs, bikes or adventure races). It's easy to use and good on my stomach. I especially like the recovery drinks right after a work out.

    Best way to get hooked on Tailwind!

    Posted by Mark in Boulder on 24th Aug 2020

    By far the best on-the-bike nutrition I have tried. And this pack is a great way to find your favorite flavor for fuel, caffeinated, fuel, and recovery. What else can I say? This is a great intro to this company.

    Awesome product

    Posted by Edgardo Perez on 14th Jul 2020

    I received my started kit just to try if for a 100 mile ultra I am planning on running. Just tried 2 flavors (Raspberry & Naked) and both had great taste. I ran for 18 miles with no food at all but the tailwind and I felt awesome, gave me the energy I needed, the electrolytes and no GI issues at all... I will try the other flavors and the recovery ones in the weeks to come, but so far I am happy with the results.

    Tailwind to the Rescue!

    Posted by Kenneth Whitehair on 12th May 2020

    I tried the Endurance Fuel for the first time last week on a 3 hour road ride and a 2 hour MTB ride in 85+ degree weather and it’s all I needed to stay hydrated and fueled! Love the Berry and CO Cola flavors! Thanks Tailwind you’re my new go-to long ride/run fuel of choice!

    Tailwind Convert!

    Posted by Crissy on 16th Jan 2020

    This is exactly what I’ve been needing for my training! I’ve been preparing for a 50 mile race and having trouble figuring out nutrition. I was having rough long runs with slow recoveries because I wasn’t getting all I needed. I decided to give tailwind a try after reading blogs of some ultra runners who’ve adopted it into their routines. I couldn’t be happier and I’ve been shocked just how fast my recovery has been following my longer runs. I’ll be using tailwind from here on out!
