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.

    I'm a believer

    Posted by The_Scootch on 8th Oct 2019

    Picked up the sample pack based on reviews and athletes that I follow on social media. I will say that I'm impressed with the variety of both the caffeinated and non-caffeinated options. I don't usually experience GI issues, but that said the flavor is delightful and light enough that you don't need to rinse your mouth with water after a drink. I've use for some long runs and plan to give this a go for hydration and fueling during my upcoming 50K.

    Purchased my first starter kit. When out for several longer test runs. Low and behold I don't have to dry heave when consuming calories. Love the product, 50K PR here I come.

    Great introduction

    Posted by Kyle M. on 6th Sep 2019

    One of the ongoing issues I have been having in both Ironman and 70.3 races has been with my nutrition. I have yet to feel like I have gotten it right in a race. The on course liquid nutrition does not sit well with me. So, I've been looking for an alternative. The Tailwind Starter pack was a great way to try out Tailwind products. The taste is light, as advertised, and it seems to sit well with me over longer workouts. I've now ordered the bigger packages and am looking forward to continuing to train and race with Tailwind. This was the perfect introduction.

    the best fuel ever

    Posted by Bob Alexander on 1st Jul 2019

    I've heard of tailwind for a long time and was just too lazy to order it, when every thing else just made my stomach sour over a long race or run. But tailwind just settled so well and the variety of great flavors just makes it fun to drink. I love the green tea flavor, its great. Anyway, I'm onboard now !!

    So Far So Good!

    Posted by Unknown on 24th Apr 2019

    I love that it dissolves clear and I don't have to worry about dye in my bottle. The chocolate recovery tastes great and I have never been a fan of mixing recovery powder with just water. Using the rest of the started pack this Sunday in Big Sur for the final test!
