Tailwind 2 Serving Stickpacks
Friday, 26 May 2017 | Stephen
I've used Tailwind a couple of times now, during a weekend long run and the last time during a 36 mile ultra this past weekend. This is a nice product. It has a light clean taste, rinses easily out of a water bottle or bladder, and hasn't caused me any undue stomach problems. I've only tried a couple of flavours so far but have no reason to believe the other flavours won't be as good. Delivery took just a couple of days to arrive too. Recommended.
First order - great service

I received a mixed box of stick packs a week ago. I've tried the Berry and Lemon flavours so far - nice clean taste and no stomach issues whatsoever. Will be using them this weekend at EMF, very pleased so far.

I'm preparing for an ironman and needed something to help me get through the final push. I was a bit concerned with the amount of gels etc I would need to take so when I learned that Tailwind was a natural product I felt I had to give it a go. I have not been disappointed. It is easily drunk and it has no nasty side effects after or during my training. The one thing I do try and do is to have my water very cold or add ice as I find in the hot weather it can taste a little *heavy '. To be fair it is very reasonably priced as well. great service with a lovely personal touch also.

New to tailwind swapped from a different supplement as I was experiencing some stomach issues. Have not had any issues since I changed over to Tailwind thus far so feel I am on to a winner here. Just used today on a 30km run and didn't burn out finished strong.
Will continue to use Tailwind now as my go to

I just did my first Sprint Tri at 65 and had been told it was essential I used gels and sports drinks or I'd never finish.
I've eaten clean food veg/vegan for almost 40 years and the idea of using chemical supplements at a time that my body needed easily accessible good nutrition didn't sit well.
I found Tailwinds online and was immediately struck by the simplicity of the ingredients and the rationale behind the product. The reviews were excellent and they did not let me down.
Despite being massively under trained due to a recent accident I finished the race without any loss of energy or stomach discomfort. I especially loved the clean taste (the unflavoured and the lemon). I'm a convert, looking for my next race and already spreading the word about Tailwinds.

I have been using Tailwind for the last few months and cant get over how much energy it gives me. I would recommend it to anyone!
Excellent product - very pleased

Very pleased with these 2 serving stickpacks. I first used tailwind at a half-marathon. It was the first energy/electrolyte drink i actually enjoyed! Got the mulitpack of 2 servings to try and find out which one I liked the most. Like them all so far! Used them on several 20+ mile training runs. Just great. Highly recommended.

Still a bit sceptical but it does seem to do the job. Just completed a 35km mountain race on tailwind and fig rolls.
Caffeinated Berry Goodness
Thursday, 25 May 2017 | Sean
Used on the bike leg of a 70.3 Half Ironman.
Due to nutrition logistics I prepared 3 sachets into one 800ml bottle. Flavour was great, despite the stronger concentration! No gut malfunctions despite average HR of 150 for the 2.5 hours on the bike. No stiches or cramps or crashes on the run stage either - a sign of good calorie and electrolyte intake from earlier.
Overall a great tasting product, I havent sampled the other flavours yet but will be ordering more Berry for sure!

It's the first time I have used Tailwind and I love it. It tastes great and does the job. The service was amazing too and it arrived within 24 hours. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Great product. Clean deck which gives energy without the usual side effects. I am now fully converted to tailwind
Being the best you can be.

I start triathlon last year as a complete novice, I was having stomach problems when running the last leg, consisting of a burning sensation and cramps, I was using a different product. I was advised by a friend of mine to try Tailwind which I used within my training sessions to make sure it was suitable for me. I raced for the first time on Sunday and knocked off 15 minutes off my previous time, I only used Tailwind and since have not had any gut problems. With the right training and nutrition you can be the best you can be.

Tailwind was recommended by a fellow triathlete and I thought I would give it a try but didnt believe it would be anything special - Very quickly i was proved wrong when I used it for Ironman training - Tailwind ticks all the boxes for me and I will definitely be using it regularly now.

Yet again very happy, ordered the mandarin orange multiserve pack, very quick delivery, super customer services, the product it's self is , great, used it for my first marathon and also for my long bike rides, tastes great, no upset tummies and keeps the energy levels at a good level, thanks tailwind

After looking at a few different types of visors for trail running, I was very happy with my purchase. With a small head a lot of the one size fits all are still to big. The tailwind visor has an adjustable velcro strap with was great to be able to tighten in high winds and loosen it on lower ground.

Tailwind was recommended by friends I recently ordered the mandarin orange flavour and used it on the weekend for the 85 mile cycle on the Tour of Pembrokeshire. The flavour is great and not over powering and no stomach problems experienced. Would definitely recommend Tailwind!

Been using Tailwind for IM training and I am impressed. Finding it especially good on the long bike rides with no drop in energy. Tastes good and so much better than gels.
Impressed! Using Tailwind only for half ironman
Monday, 22 May 2017 | Alasdair
Iíve been using Tailwind in training for a few weeks but decided to wait for my first race before providing a review. Iíve just completed a middle distance triathlon (half ironman) using tailwind exclusively. I put 6 scoops in one bottle for the bike and sipped regularly with additional water as required from my aero bottle. On the run I carried a hand held flask with 2 scoops in about 300 ml of water. I drank additional water at the aid stations. Overall it went really well and I had the best feeling stomach compared to previous races. Plus at no point did I not want to drink TW whereas with gels I often find I can no longer face them. Energy levels remained topped up and didnít feel hungry at all. I wouldnít say my stomach was perfect on the later stages of the run but was much better than other nutrition I have tried. Pleased with the result and be interested to find out how it works over the longer ironman distance!

After training and racing on gels and different kinds of foods for the last 3yrs for Ultras and suffering cramps and tummy ache after the race had finished, I needed to look into something different and saw a post on on a search for ultra nutrition. After a trial of the multi-sticks over training distances, I ran the Three Forts Challenge and Dukeries 40 mile trail, my first long ones on Tail wind. WHAT A DIFFERENCE!
Most notably I didn't get any dips of fatigue. I felt strong and well hydrated the whole run. I have noticed a significant improvement in my recovery afterwards also. Would definitely recommend this product.
Tailwind 2 Serving Stickpacks

I used the Tailwind stickpacks to fuel me during Southampton Marathon and it helped me knock 4 mins of my previous best Highly recomend, had 750ml of water and a stickpack sipped the hour before the start, and a stickpack and water roughly every hour during the race which seemed to work well

Only just started using Tailwind but it really seems to be good stuff. 2 hour ride yesterday, one sachet dropped in my water bottle and I felt no drop in energy on my ride and I didn't feel starving through the remains of the day. Going to be riding today and not taking any snacks with me!
Thursday, 18 May 2017 | Paula
I used Tailwind in my first ultra last weekend, the NDW50. I took one bottle each of the raspberry caffeine and orange flavours and topped up en route. I've felt sick in the past when using gels and other sports drinks so it's been great to find a product that doesn't have any adverse effects. Eating on the run is a skill that I'm still getting to grips with but with Tailwind I felt safe that I was taking in enough calories to get me through., and after a long day I finished still feeling strong. Thank you!
Thursday, 18 May 2017 | Jeremy
Truly great product, I will be using in a 100km in less than two weeks, so will provide further feedback from the race. Worked well on training runs, and a recent marathon as 'training'.
Thursday, 18 May 2017 | Emma-Leigh
I can't eat anything 2 hours before, during or just after a run or I will throw up. I struggled through a half marathon with nothing then a friend recommended tail wind. It's a life saver for me. I've only done a few longer runs with it but it's not made me sick and I've had plenty of energy. Hoping it will give me the push I need for the Wales half in June

I used a lemon flavour 2 serving stick pack on a 16 mile run and would highly recommend the product to runners. Gentle on the stomach, great flavour and I really felt the benefits from the calories/electrolytes. Looking forward to trying the other flavours!
Fantastic Unflavoured Tailwind
Thursday, 18 May 2017 | Samantha
A friend introduced me to tailwind, and I ordered the unflavoured tailwind, having already tried the berry flavour, which I struggled with the taste of when running.
The unflavoured is a great product, and using it in stick form makes it easy to mix while out on a run or before. And being a smaller sample makes it a great way to tryout without committing to a larger pack if you don't like a flavour.
Love this product, and will definitely be ordering more!

This is the first time I used Tailwind in a race. It was easy I the stomach and I felt energised for the whole of the race. Well recommended 😀
Wednesday, 17 May 2017 | John
Usual excellent speedy delivery great t shirt probably the thinnest and lightest I've ever had very quick drying
Wednesday, 17 May 2017 | Jim
This was my first time using Tailwind in a race, although I have dabbled a bit in training. It seems to do the job in terms of keeping the low points at bay. I used it to supplement what I was eating. This is the first race I haven't used Gels and didn't miss them a bit. Customer service is excellent, and delivery prompt (early). In terms of flavour, personal favourite is lemon, and the fruit flavoured ones all good. Not a big big fan of green tea, but I'm not a big fan of green tea. Will reccommend to friends.

Tailwind was recommended by a mate doing IRONMAN last year & I've been using it recently for my own IM training. So far So Good, I use the unflavoured which just adds a neutral tang to water and it just seems to work. I supplement with a banana or light snack bar on long rides but it really does seem to provide the energy needed but for doing nothing more than seeming to keep hydrated. No more chewing every 20 minutes or fighting with sticky Gels.

This was my 2nd order of Tailwind. Again, excellent personal service, this time from Rob in the stores. Needed a bunch of stickpacks to take to a tri training camp in Majorca. As with the last order, next day delivery with that special tailwind-uk personal touch
Stickpacks were for use on the longer bike rides and did the job perfectly. The 70 mile Sa Calobra ride was fueled purely on tailwind and was faultless. Used the mandarin in 1 bottle and raspberry buzz in the other. Big glug of the raspberry at the base of the 10km / 670m climb was enough to see me through the hardest part of the day in the saddle. The mrs also used them on her first Cat 2 climb on the bike and was more than impressed at the taste and the effect it had. Really can't recommend this product enough!
Great product, excellent service!

I am relatively new to running and when looking for nutrition I was recommended Tailwind by friends. I did some research and decided it ticked all the boxes. I placed my order for a mixed box and by the following day the products had arrived. The product does exactly what it says with no undesirable digestive issues. Every flavour is subtle and tasty. Customer service is excellent and I will certainly be recommending Tailwind to anyone looking for first class nutrition.
Monday, 15 May 2017 | Tony
I was recommended this product by a friend, I tried it last weekend and it fuelled me all the way. I drank around 5l over the 50 miles, no gels just a few savory bites and jelly babies at the aid stations. Will keep using.
Great service and product
Monday, 15 May 2017 | Rene
I wanted to try the stickpacks for long races. I did a 50 mile trailrun and I was very happy with the stickpacks. No stomach issues and a good flavor! A good way to get (a part of) your calories during a race!
Early Days... but so far so good
Monday, 15 May 2017 | Paul
Thought I'd give Tailwind a go after a fellow runner mentioned it. Bought a 30 serving Raspberry Buzz and first use was for back to back training runs (31 miles/4 hours and 22 miles/3 hours).
I used a reasonably strong mix (~2.5 scoops in ~600ml). It's a learning curve - I was poorly fueled the day before and no breakfast either day - what I had was not quite enough but I battled through without any side effects. I have since been experimenting with slightly strong mixes (a bit of a struggle flavour-wise) and instead carry a couple of stick packs to refill on the move instead.
I've found the caffeinated ones better than the non-caffeinated for obvious reasons, need to try alternating them in a forthcoming 100km race.
Monday, 15 May 2017 | Kevin
Purchased the stick packs so i could taste test them all and found very pleased. Used them on long runs and ln one bottle on a long day cycling and they really work. Best thimg is thete are no sticky gel wrappers to deal with.
Nice handwritten note in with the order is a really nice touch. Would highly recommend anyone to try and see if you can fault Tailwind.

Thought I'd give Tailwind a go after a friend recommeded it & I was pleased I did.
I used it for the 1st time yesterday on a 34 mile run. After having porridge for breakfast, Tailwind kept me going for over 7 hours. I did have a jam sandwich at about 20 miles but I think thats more habit. I didn't feel hungry (which is very unusual for me!) & I didn't get have any stomach issues or bloating.
I like the stick packs as the're good to carry on long runs. On my next long run I'm going to use the caffine ones for the latter half & may even ditch the jam sandwich! Will definately be ordering more. Great product.
Better than Salomon soft flask
Saturday, 13 May 2017 | Ian
Yes it does fit in Salomon vest pockets; yes it'd wider neck makes if much easier and quicker to fill; yes it doesn't stick out over the top of the vest pocket and so flap about.
The only disadvantage is the wider top made of hard plastic is less comfortable on your upper rib when full. After about 10k, it felt as if a bruise was appearing. However, as soon as I took a few sips from it, this subsided and it became equally as comfortable as the Salomon flask I had in the other side as a comparison. Remedies, it seems could include not filling it so full; starting to drink from it a little sooner; or even padding it out at the start with a buff.
I think the advantages outweigh this one disadvantage. Over a marathon distance training run this morning, it was only those first 10k it was uncomfortable for (well, about 4-10k, really). Compared to foot and leg pain it's nothing anyway!

Good service and nice product. Does what it needs to and taste quite nice too.
Tech tee very nice
Friday, 12 May 2017 | Adrian
Very happy with this tech tee. Super light fast wicking and a general nice fit. Defiantly a go to tee for summer.
Friday, 12 May 2017 | Joanne
I am training for my first ultra marathon and Tailwind was recommended. I had tried various gels but we used the stickpack on a 15 mile run and loved it. No hunger pangs or dips in energy. Looking forward to trying out the different flavours. Great customer service and quick delivery. Highly recommend this product.
Friday, 12 May 2017 | Christine
I always use Tailwind whether it's a bike or run I'm doing and it gives me no sickly feeling like all the gels I have used in the past.
Friday, 12 May 2017 | Suzi
I've not had chance to try these out yet, but am planning to on my long run, this weekend. My order arrived the very next day, nicely packaged, with a handwritten note. The quick delivery and personal touch made these stand out.
Caffeinated raspberry buzz
Friday, 12 May 2017 | C
Knocked seven minutes off my 10k trail run course PB, tum was fine and it was tasty. I will try it again
Thursday, 11 May 2017 | Sam
Only tried the pack out once - but it went really well!
I have a very sensitive tummy and a hernia so was very cautious!
Did a long 34km run and used the sachet in my water pack and sipped slowly. tasted great (berry) and not too saccharine. Definitely helped in my overall performance and I felt well hydrated after.
Tummy did really well with it and I will be trialing again this weekend!

I recently had a rucksack malfunction at the Kintyre Way Ultra and was left to run over 35 miles with nothing beside Tailwind and 2 Babybels. Normally a fan of a pie or two I was initially worried but then amazed the energy my Raspberry Buzz gave me. No gut bombs, no cramping, no hunger pains, genuinely no negatives! The picnic basket will now be getting left at home and replaced full time with Tailwind. Customer service is also second to none. Thanks guys
Wednesday, 10 May 2017 | Lucie
It's the first time i've ever tried Tailwind and i loved it. No weird reaction in my gut, tastes great and gives me the extra energy i need on my long runs.
Wednesday, 10 May 2017 | Peter
I continue to use Tailwind as it is genuinely the only product I've found the meets all of my nutritional requirements when running. With a delicate stomach I suffered when using anything else: gels, food, sports drinks etc but Tailwind sits well and doesn't ever give me any problems (not to mention it tastes brilliant!)
Each time I order, I'm amazed by the friendly, helpful and very personal customer service - you simply couldn't ask for more. These guys are really interested in their customers, and that enthusiasm filters though to making this a fantastic product.
Thank you Tailwind!!!
Best running water bottle ever!
Wednesday, 10 May 2017 | Fiona
I like to stay hydrated while running but I have always found carrying water bottles such a pain as they are awkward to hold and the water sloshes around.
I bougbt this one for a 10k race at the weekend and it was absolutely amazing! Comfortable and light to hold, no sloshing around, easy to drink from and no spillage.
I will be using it for every run from now on and I know what all my running friends will be getting from me for their birthdays this year!!
I have made two purchases from this website and both times the service has been brilliant - next day delivery with a personalised card.
Couldn't recommend more highly!
Tailwind Nutrition, lemon flavour
Tuesday, 9 May 2017 | Sue
A great product which keeps me going through all my ultra runs, both in training and racing. It's easy on my stomach and tastes great - not at all sweet and sickly, but very refreshing. Brilliant service from Tailwind too - very prompt delivery and love the personal touches!
