Excellent service & communication. Product delivered next day.

Great product
Tuesday, 27 September 2016  |  Andrew

Used for 1st time at the weekend. Saturday on the bike, Sunday run. Mixes easily no goo in the bottom that won't mix. Light and not sickly sweet like some others. Subtle flavour means easy to drink, with 200 cals per 750ml bottle. Stomach was great and no wind 😄. Trying the different flavours before buying the larger bags. Also great response and personally packaged with note, thanks

Sticks very easy to manage and drop into a bottle on the move.

Amazing Product
Tuesday, 27 September 2016  |  Neil

This is the first time I have used Tailwind. The service and advice was excellent. I am recovering from an abdominal operation and wanted a supplement that would let me get to distance training and be kind in my stomach. I have tried most products in the market but think that tailwind is by far the best. I have not had any gastro issues since using it and the flavours are fab too

Tailwind Tech Tee shirt
Tuesday, 27 September 2016  |  David

I recently purchased Tech tee (size M)
I found it to be some what larger than expected, thus developed some chaffing to the nipples, but not to be deterred on my second attempt I then applied body glide from Ron hill.
this done the trick, but after washing the garment I discovered it now has darker staining to chest area,
Love the top and the colour, but beware what you apply.

Slight Issue...
Tuesday, 27 September 2016  |  John

Great bottles but one arrived with a small leak. Didn't think it would be a problem but leak throughout my run.

2 Day Ultra
Tuesday, 27 September 2016  |  John

I used these for the first time last weekend and loved them. I will definitely be buying more.

I have started to use Tailwind energy drink as it was recommended to me by two experienced triathletes. I am training for a tough marathon and so far they have not disappointed . An instant energy boost

Great Taste Nutrition
Sunday, 25 September 2016  |  David

Great taste carb mix. No need for food. It's the total package!

Previously used SiS but this tastes better and is more reliable!

Tailwind 2 stickpack
Sunday, 25 September 2016  |  Carole

1st time using Tailwind today and 1st time I haven't had an upset stomach. Did 3 races today no problem and looking forward to Kielder marathon next week now I know I won't be suffering.

Nice T-Shirt
Friday, 23 September 2016  |  Philip

Its a good fitting, normal sized technical tee. No chaffing, nice colours.

Great Product
Friday, 23 September 2016  |  Philip

This was my first time using a Tailwind product, after a recommendation from a friend. I found it helped a lot when on longer runs. I did find the recommended dose suggestion rather odd as it is in oz, it would be a lot easier if it was in ml like all the bottles and bladders are (in the UK). I should have looked what 24oz was (2-3 scoops per 24oz is the recommended). But after talking to the Tailwind guys at the RAT race in Cornwall I discovered this was 6 scoops for 1.5 litres. It defiantly helps with runs lasting more than 1.5hrs, and I now always use it. I still eat a few cereal bars but no longer use them nasty gels thanks to Tailwind.

Refreshing Flavour
Thursday, 22 September 2016  |  Claudine

Fantastic customer service and great product. I bought the 10 stickpack box first and settled on the refreshing mandarin orange flavour. Tailwind has got me through numerous half marathons without anything additional and I intend to use it for my next marathon to get myself a new PB! Try it.

Excellent product and service
Thursday, 22 September 2016  |  Daniel

Superb tasting and easy to use product. I have noticed an instant positive difference in my hydration and energy levels since starting to use this product. Very quick delivery and personalised note an excellent touch.

Great evidence so far.
Thursday, 22 September 2016  |  Mike

I bought a selection of 2-serving stickpacks and thus far I have only used one (Berry) across two events - the Eyemouth Sprint Triathlon and an open water swim of a mile at Threipmuir Reservoir. On both occasions I definitely felt that I had more energy towards the end of each event. The 5K run at the end of the triathlon was much more dynamic than it usually is! The real test is this weekend at the 3 Peaks Cyclocross in Yorkshire. A really tough event and I'm banking on Tailwind to keep me going throughout.

Berry nice product
Thursday, 22 September 2016  |  Lorna

This is the second time I've ordered tailwind product and I like the fast if the berry flavours most . Taste is subtle and pleasant even when my water has gone warm . Been using this to fuel my 3-8 mile runs in this warm weather as I sweat buckets and it really helps

Second to none
Wednesday, 21 September 2016  |  Ross

Back for more tailwind for my next crazy race because it works. Simple.

I also can't recommend Tailwind's excellent customer service highly enough. Prompt delivery, personal notes, and a few days before my race a personal email wishing me luck and giving me a weather report for the day.

Keep it up!

Tailwind assisted
Wednesday, 21 September 2016  |  Colin

Having tried this as at an event was very impressed by the taste and the result on my performance. To that end have recommended to many of my clients and customers that they use it and the response has been overwhelming.
I now would say that in the Run Venture Trail Running Hub in West Devon, many of our #trailwarriors are tailwind assisted.

Superb product
Wednesday, 21 September 2016  |  Gerry

Great delivery service, arrived very prompt and in a cardboard outer packaging. Nice personal note enclosed. Decided to try the product on a marathon and found them to be like other comments i read here easy to take just like water really, smooth on the stomach. If you are in doubt in trying them, don't be as this brand will be my first choice for nutrition now.
Very impressed snd great value I think.

Defo recommend
Tuesday, 20 September 2016  |  Nicola

Great stuff. A must try....Much beta than regular gels... love them.. I won't be going bac to gels !!!

Tuesday, 20 September 2016  |  Iain

love this product.....cant see me using or needing anything else

Great service
Tuesday, 20 September 2016  |  Graeme

Fast reliable service with good advice and support. Also really nice touch with a handwritten note of advice and encouragement. I am planning to use this at an ultra marathon in 4 days, I will post a product review after that

Great for long rus!!!
Tuesday, 20 September 2016  |  Hazel

My two furthest runs to date, 16 and 20 miles and it was fantastic. I was recommended by a friend a while ago and truly can feel the difference and will now always use it for longer runs. I have a marathon coming up so the Berry Caffiene will be my choice! Thank you

Exactly what I'd hoped
Monday, 19 September 2016  |  Jeremy

Mixes easily, tastes good, no tummy issues, what's not to like!
Overall very impressed, will definitely be ordering again.

Ultra Nutrition
Monday, 19 September 2016  |  Madoc

Now my #1 Mandatory kit item !

Over the last few years my resilience to Gels and then "Real solids" has lowered significantly.

Tailwind is now my silver bullet for nutrition. CW50 went without a hitch last weekend.

Awesome stuff which has a great subtle flavor, lets your mind concentrate on the race rather than your stomach

Wow, just wow
Monday, 19 September 2016  |  Craig

I used the orange tailwind product for the first ever time this weekend for a race. I normally start to get 'tired' legs after about 16k, but sipping this product had such a positive impact that I actually increased my pace for the last 6k of the race with one competitor who had overtaken me previously shouting wow as I blasted past him.

I hate gels due to the gut bomb effect, but these products are much more subtle.

I still have an issue with powdered flavours but the orange isn't too bad in my hydration pack instead of water.

I highly recommend Tailwind and I will definitely be back to order more in the future!

Super service & brilliant product
Monday, 19 September 2016  |  Elizabeth

I am currently training for the Beachy Head marathon at the end of October. I have used Tailwind on 2 of my long runs now. The first was a 13 mile and second a 16 miles. On the 13 mile run I over diluted the product (on advise of a friend) and felt Ok.. This week I mixed the 'naked' stick pack with 24 fl oz water and really felt the benefit as I consumed nearly all of the product during my run. No sticky mess to carry around - good taste / just slightly salty, no upset stomach and I would have had enough energy to keep on running. Thank you Tailwind - will definitely be purchasing again

Great product and no headaches!
Monday, 19 September 2016  |  Emily

Great product - ran 18 miles yesterday without the need for anything else to fuel me! Plus, I normally suffer from a bit of an after run headache and salt cravings, but didn't get these after using tailwind! Thanks!!

Saturday, 17 September 2016  |  Richard

Trying this product for the first time, with a view to using it on Ultra Trail runs this winter and next summer. Met several people who recommended this to me this year in the Alps. I do struggle a bit to get enough electrolytes in etc when running in the heat. I'm very confident this product is going to be a great help. Have only used on long run in the UK at the moment, but so far so good! Tastes good and no issues so far. Looking forward to trying it out on first "warmer" run in Gran Canaria next year.
Excellent service and delivery!

Great product
Wednesday, 14 September 2016  |  David

Tailwind has helped me complete a few ultras this year, and i'll be relying on it again for Spartathlon.

Super Stickpacks & service!
Tuesday, 13 September 2016  |  Adam

As I prepare to dip my toe into the world of ultra running for the first time a second Tailwind order was top of my 'To Buy' list having been so impressed with it first time round. A non-sticky very light powder with subtle flavouring was a revelation after months of putting up with sickly warm gels. Many of my ultra-running pals have been using Tailwind for a while and kept suggesting I tried it after I was logging runs on running apps with the word 'stitch' in the title, and what a difference! No mess, no fuss, no 'hitting the wall' at the end of races and no stitch! BRILLIANT!
I also feel it necessary to add that equally as brilliant is the customer service too. Not only have my two orders been speedily processed, but receiving a personal good luck message before my last race was a really nice touch too. In conclusion, I have and will continue to recommend Tailwind without question.

Tuesday, 13 September 2016  |  Richard

I tried the stick packs on a 50 mile ultra yesterday and was very pleased to find I had no stomach problems, even when small amounts of food were included at the checkpoints. The two problems I do have with it are one, that it is very hard to rip the tops off, making it difficult to tip into bottles and two, that the 750ml mix size is difficult for many runners who usually have 500ml bottles.

The Magic Stuff
Monday, 12 September 2016  |  Claire

I ordered Tailwind following many recommendations saying how great it was and I am 100% converted! Gels used to make me sick, as did the normal Isotonic drinks. This is easy to drink, refreshing and didn't leave me feeling or being sick - a total revolution! The lemon was a nice subtle flavour and the stick packs were ideal for easy mixing up at the start line. I am so happy with this product and was absolutely bowled over with the excellent customer service - I ordered it on the Thursday night and had it by the Saturday morning, complete with a personal message enclosed. I also received an email from Rod just before my marathon wishing me well, which was a really lovely touch! Thank you Tailwind

Fast swift service
Monday, 12 September 2016  |  Clinton

Excellent product and great fast service

Monday, 12 September 2016  |  Kelly

I'm new to half marathon after only taking up running in January. So fueling is a whole new ball game to me. Everything I have tired has been blowing me up, giving me stomach aches and trapped wind pains etc. I also suffer with chronic Hempilegic migraines so I needed something that was going to keep me going and this is when I found out about tailwind.
Yesterday was my first 12 mi training run and I took out the rasberry buzz. Fantastic taste.
Sipping this regularly through out my run was all I needed to get me through. No gut bombs, no stitches , no trapped wind pains etc. I felt great. Also no headaches or flashey eyes at mile 10. So didn't need to have good as I thought I might need like last time. Tailwind was all I needed. It's the perfect product to keep you going and if your like me some one who suffers from chronic illness who is fighting back to get fit this product is the one that you need. I've tried them all and I wish I'd of just got this one sooner.

Tailwind First Try
Monday, 12 September 2016  |  Marika

Great Product.

Mixes well and tastes great even after bottle got warm.

Nice light flavour that isn't overpowering and no gut bombs.

Had my best performance ever after using.

Would recommend and definitely use again.

Saturday, 10 September 2016  |  Amanda

Used this on my first marathon as gels were giving me stomach problems, I'm sure it gave me more consistent energy with no bloating or cramps, very pleased with it

Soft bottles
Saturday, 10 September 2016  |  Gillian

Good quality soft bottle., easy to hold. Great service as always.

Friday, 9 September 2016  |  Julian

Was looking for a solution to provide me with the necessary electrolytes, salt and calorie intake for Ultra Marathons. Ticks all the boxes, great taste and actually quenches my thirst.

Very Impressed
Thursday, 8 September 2016  |  Daniel

I recently bought the stick packs to aid training for an upcoming Ironman 70.3 and had read some positive reviews on Tailwind on a triathlon forum. I was looking for an energy product that would reduce the need for sticky gels and was finding other energy drinks really unpalatable and giving me some gastric distress when doing tri so this seemed to be a perfect solution. Very happy to say that Tailwind is very easy on the stomach and therefore perfect for long periods of exercise and I've found that I've had far more energy on my long training rides when using Tailwind. Really looking forward to using it at Weymouth Ironman 70.3 this weekend. The sticks are a perfect size to carry in addition to what I'll have in my bottle and the flavours are all very subtle and palatable. Very impressed so far.

Perfect 👍
Thursday, 8 September 2016  |  Paolo

Li ho conosciuti e usati alla Arctic Ultra Sweden 2016 e da allora sempre con me 🔝

Really useful!
Thursday, 8 September 2016  |  Stuart

This is a great flask. Just the right size too. It feels well made and sturdy even though the material is surprisingly thin. My only (and very minor) gripe is that I'd like the top end of the flask to be soft too. But that's just a personal preference thing. I'll be using this flask a lot!

Works well
Wednesday, 7 September 2016  |  Dan

With Tailwind I manage to preserve my appetite much longer when doing ultra events. Tastes good too.

One minor quibble is that it would be good if they put mixing measurements in metric on the packet.

Pitch Perfect, as always
Wednesday, 7 September 2016  |  Craig

Bought this for Rat Race coast to coast this weekend. This will be my 3rd big event using tailwind. Used it for Race to the Stones in July and for Rat Race dirty Weekend back in May. Excellent product. Light refreshing, not too "claggy" (sticky/ hard to swallow) or cloying.

Service from the website excellent as always.

Will continue to use this fantastic product and will continue to use this service.

Wednesday, 7 September 2016  |  Grace

Tailwind is definitely something special. A great taste, something you actually want to drink! Able to fuel for the whole event (I'm a 13hr ironman!) Recommending to anyone and everyone I know!!

must have
Tuesday, 6 September 2016  |  Marcin

I have never used it, but I decided to be with a basic product during my debut at the distance ultra marathon 50 Miles . After reading reviews of other users I stated that there is no sense to do your own food , wear gels and other such things if I can have it all in one product . Ultra marathon I run on September 18 , and the product tested during last longer runs, - 33 km 2 days ago. And I must say that it works great. During this training, I drank about 1.8 liters of the mix and I did not feel that I was missing anything . Three more sips at every kilometer and nothing more is necessary . I bought a bag for 30 servings , but the next order will be 50. I recommend a super product .

Excellently portable
Tuesday, 6 September 2016  |  Paul

Great item and very portable for those long runs. No leakage and even more beneficial that as the fluid goes the flask collapses completely for easy carriage. Cleaning is simple also. Great job

Very good
Tuesday, 6 September 2016  |  Heidi


Very good
Tuesday, 6 September 2016  |  Heidi

So far so good

Better than gels!!
Tuesday, 6 September 2016  |  Paul

Quick delivery and only used on 1 long run and 2 X 70 mile bike rides but so far so good, no stomach problems and certainly beats using gels constantly. I'm hoping these are going to help me through IMW and I will definitely be ordering more in the future. Great product, thank you!
