Each serving is 100 calories.

For endurance workouts, mix the stickpack with 24 oz (700ml) 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.

Tasty and fantastic service
Thursday, 17 August 2017  | 

I'm lucky to have a hardy tum so have used gels for some time but was recommended to try Tailwind. It has a lovely chemical free taste and goes down (too!) easy. Definitely has helped with my longer runs and recovery. Also, the customer service was fantastic and I'll be buying again for sure. Just need to try and decide on what flavour to try next!

Steady sustained energy ,great taste ,happy stomach ,loving it and already recommended to friends .

I love this stuff! I use it on my long training runs (anything 1hr +) and at events and it gives me great energy along the way. Massive bonus is that is has no effect at all on my gut like most of the other energy drinks and gels out there. And i love the personal note that comes with each order, it's a little thing but just a really nice touch. Thanks

It's @&£)(;:/ Awesome!
Friday, 11 August 2017  | 

I have been using Tailwind for almost two years and believe that it has played no small part in my successful completion of various ultras during this time. Including, most recently, the North Downs Way 100. On this occasion, in particular, I noticed not even the slightest signs of GI distress and maintained consistent energy levels throughout the day (and a bit). Because of this, and the awesome service provided by Mike and his team in Wiltshire, I hope to continue to use it and them for a very very long time. Thank you. P.s flavour of choice is Lemon!

Half way through my first order and enjoying the benefits. Riding 2-3hours followed by 1-2hr of running and nothing else needed. Half iron at the weekend and it is all that I'll be taking on the bike as it keeps me fuelled without feeling heavy or bloated on the run 👍

Early days yet, but looking good
Tuesday, 8 August 2017  | 

I'm a first-time user having heard great things about Tailwind. I have to say the personalised service is a great touch and delivery was rapid. As for the product, I went for 'berry'. I have to say it's a very nice taste Ė not sickly, not too sweet. Only used it twice so far on a couple of three hour runs, but no problems with digestion and it seemed to keep me going without he need to supplement with gels or food.

Fantastic personalised service - love the touch of both the handwritten card and name on the multipack serving
Used this on my back to back runs and although I can't manage to drink as much as recommended per hour, I managed over 3.5 hours each day with only tailwind (2 x 500ml each with 2 servings) and didn't feel I needed any supplementary gels/food.

Bought the Tailwind Nutrition for the first time as I heard great reviews about the product.

I must say, they reviews were all true! Great tasting and easy to digest. Tried it for the first time on a 2 hour run. 3 servings used in an 500 ml bottle and enough to power me throughout the run.

Will be buying more products soon to fuel me through the Stort 30 ultra in October!

Felt a difference
Tuesday, 1 August 2017  | 

I have really felt a difference in training with tailwind, compared to my long runs before. Especially 20k runs in summer conditions were so hard, but with a bottle of tailwind it feels much more manageable. Also, I donít feel completely parched after I finish, which is a bonus.

This was my 2nd purchase of Tailwind having been impressed by it's performance whilst on long bike rides in prep. for Ironman Wales. I finally undertook a long run with it yesterday (usually I'm loathe to carry any extra weight). All I can say is WOW! I took a 500ml bottle for a 2 hour run, with a fair few hills. Taking a few sips every 20 minutes made a lot of difference to my run, and I experienced none of the stomach problems which have plagued me when using other brands on course at IMW. As well as the product itself, the customer service is great - I'll soon be back for more!!!!

Update to my review on 19/7. Completed Fort William Marathon yesterday using Tailwind as my only race fuel and hydration in my fastest time yet. So easy to use and a mouthful every mile was perfect. No cramps, rumbling guts or any issue. My only disappointment is not having found this product sooner! One very happy runner 😊

Tailwind multi serving bag
Wednesday, 26 July 2017  | 

This product definitely seems to do the job in one go and enables you to travel light on those extra long runs. Would have been 5 stars other than the packaging. I decided to try the big bag after struggling on runs with the individual serving pack. Very awkward to open with Vaseline and sweat on your hands and ended up covered in the powder a few times. The larger pack put into a drinks bottle and carried as powder to be made up in other bottles along the way works well. Still struggled opening the large pack with the tear slit and had to get the scissors out.

Good Stuff!
Tuesday, 25 July 2017  | 

So far so good...I've only used tailwind on 3 or 4 runs but its easy to prepare and easy to use and saves on carrying pockets/belts or bags full of gels with no annoying wrappers or sticky hands. I've been an avid gel-aholic for years now but this stuff seems to work. Service is great too, with a hand written note and plenty of advice with prompt delivery too! Well worth a dabble!

From cynic to sold!
Wednesday, 19 July 2017  | 

When I first heard of Tailwind, I put it in the spam folder of my mind with the rest of the magical products out there on the market; but word of mouth (podcasts & twitter actually!) can bring even the most cynical of consumers around. And so it was with me.

Before I get into the product, let me wax lyrical for a moment about the customer service. Hands down, this is the no.1 for customer service. From the friendly advice on twitter to the hand written note with encouragement for my next race enclosed in my first order, you really can't fault the guys. Added to the swift delivery and the free soft flask I got with my order, it's been a great experience.

Right, so let's get to the juicy bit: the product!
I usually suffer headaches after a long run, it's part and parcel of what I've come to accept. After a hilly 20 miler on a very hot day, fuelled on Tailwind, I was totally fine!! Extra special considering I ran out on mile 15!

The taste is light and refreshing, not sickly sweet like most other products on the market. It's like water with a hint of fruit in my opinion, so you can keep drinking all day without getting sick of it. It also mixes tremendously easy which means it washes easily too! Bonus!

And the big winner over other drinks/gels is that it doesn't go all sticky!!

All in all, Tailwind have a new loyal customer and I have a new brilliant product!

Thank you

After being recommended Tailwind by a friend, due to me constantly 'forgetting' to take on nutrition (gels/bars etc) at regular intervals during rides and then almost hitting the wall, I thought I'd give it a try.
Can't recommend it highly enough. small regular sips is all I needed on my last sportive with no side effects. Pleasant, subtle taste and excellent customer service. Will definitely be ordering more when current supplies run low.

A well fuelled runner is a happy runner!
Wednesday, 19 July 2017  | 

After years of using a combination of gels, energy bars and isotonic drinks to fuel my long runs, an ultra runner friend suggested I gave Tailwind a go. Ordered my first bag a couple of weeks ago, it was delivered promptly and the personalised hand written card which came with it was a nice touch. I have now completed two 21 mile training runs using only Tailwind and I'm never going back to the 'combo' I used to use. I run with a Camelbak which makes Tailwind ideal. It mixes very easily with water, tastes fine (I ordered lemon) and I had none of the stomach/gut 'issues' you often get with gels and bars. My strategy was a mouthful every mile, so much easier than rooting around for a gel or bar and then having to try and open the packaging whilst keeping the pace going. I'm so confident in Tailwind based on my initial experience that I will run my next race (Fort William marathon on 30/7) using Tailwind alone. A well fuelled runner is a happy runner 😀

Tuesday, 18 July 2017  | 

Cannot recommend this product enough. Did the Race to the Stones last weekend and ran for nearly 13 hours on just Tailwind (and a couple of glasses of flat coke and some Watermelon late on) and had no issues. Really does take all the stress and hassle out of planning your food and drink strategy. Doing the Thames Path 100 next year and I believe they have pre made up Tailwind drink at the aid stations so perfect for me!

Had stomach problems with Powerbar products at Ironman Wales last year. Other members of tri club were using Tailwind so I thought I'd give it a go.
Very mild taste is a big improvement, with no sickness or bloating. Successfully used sachets on a long hot ride, the mixture of nutrition and salts kept me hydrated and fuelled.
Service is spot on too, I will be staying with Tailwind from here on.

Recently started using Tailwind for my training for Ultra and it was my only fuel. It works!!! No pesky side aches or tummy rumbles. I was able to get through a hilly course with plenty of energy.
No enduring sugar/chemical taste, however does get a bit sweet after prolonged use. Maybe that is the flavor I chose (Lemon). Quick to the blood-stream fuel, and very effective whilst training and recovery.
Prompt attention to getting my order out the door and delivered to my house, and nice note with a personal touch. Very impressed so far. Will definitely write a review after my next Ultra Race.

The best I have used for a long time
Monday, 10 July 2017  | 

I have been struggling recently to find a suitable drink supplement for my cycling activities, problems have been caused particularly stomach cramps! My cycling these days is over distances up to 100 miles or so as I am now 78 years of age. I tried Tailwind out yesterday with a ride of 70 miles with a group who are all younger than I and felt comfortable in keeping up with them. The usual stomach cramps did not materialise and I recovered more quickly than usual after finishing the ride. Legs feel good the day afterwards! Will be using Tailwind for my longer solo rides and see how I get on.

A friend introduced me to Tailwind a few months ago and I haven't looked back. I use it for long runs in varying proportions depending on the length on run and temperature that day. It's been great and tastes good too! I like the fact that it is both calorific and also contains essential salts. I'll be using it in Aug / Sep for the Fire & Ice ultra in Iceland.

So far so good
Saturday, 1 July 2017  | 

After reading the many reviews I went and ordered the multi pack in orange flavour. I figured if so many long distance runners / cyclists rate it so highly then it was certainly worth trying.
I have only used it twice on a 10 and 12 mile run. Each time I used 2 scoops for a 500ml bottle. One bottle was enough on each run although I will probably use one bottle for every one hour of running in future.
The 'orange' taste is pretty negligible probably because I'm used to drinks with a much sweeter taste but as many have said it is very refreshing and more importantly it keeps the hunger pangs at bay.
I have a 40 miler coming up and will probably stick a banana or sandwich in my drop bags just in case but have a strong feeling they wont be necessary.

Both couldn't have been more true.

I could never get on with gels or bars. This is so much better. Chuck it in your Camelbak and away you go. Tastes great as well.

The only rehydration product I would recommend
Thursday, 29 June 2017  | 

Like many other long distance runners, I started off rehydrating using a number of products, while supplementing with gels/energy sachets/bars. The one perpetual issue I had beyond mile 25 was cramp. The sickly taste of fructose/glucose gels also meant I couldn't stomach them thereafter. However, I recently came to Tailwind and have since used this on a 26-mile trail marathon in the Lake District and a 53-mile race in Scotland (the Fling). No cramp, good performance and very drinkable once mixed with water. I am really impressed and will use this as my go to hydration/electrolyte product again and again.

I was recommended Tailwind by a few friends who have used the product for many years when competing in Ironman distance events and numerous ultra's.

Having never heard of the product I thought I'd check it out and have to say I am mega impressed. The main thing that you want after been on the go for hours first of all is a good tasting product which this is great, secondly something that sits well in your gut and thirdly something that actually works!

Great on all 3 points and even better customer service. Such a great personal touch with the order and after care I feel like I am not just a number but Tailwind actually give a monkeys about each individual they serve. Great job i will be using Tailwind as my drink of choice going forward.

Dextrose (Glucose), Sucrose, Sodium Citrate, Sea Salt, Citric Acid, Organic Flavour, Potassium Chloride, Calcium Carbonate, Magnesium Citrate

 

Nutrient Breakdown:

 

Sodium: Maintains Fluid Balance

Sodium is needed in the body for a number of reasons, the most important for endurance athletes is its role in the maintenance of extracellular fluid volume which influences the hydration of an athlete.

It is also important for the uptake of nutrients such hexose (carbohydrate) and amino acids (protein).

During extended periods of exercise it is important that sodium levels are replenished. As the bodies sodium concentration falls ECF (extracellular fluid) falls which can have detrimental effects to the bodies cells. Physiologically this will present as dizziness and faintness.

 

Sodium Citrate: Stops Cramps

Sodium citrate is added to the Tailwind Nutrition products to act as a pH regulator. When the muscles are working for extended periods of time, muscle pH will decrease and cramps take effect. The role of sodium citrate is to delay the effects of this lowering pH and prevent the build up of lactic acid in the athletes muscles to help reduce cramps and allow them to run, cycle or row for longer.

 

Potassium: Stops Muscle Weakness

Potassium is essential for the acid-base regulation and to maintain the electrophysiology of nerves and muscles. A deficiency in potassium (caused by prolonged sweating during physical activity) can alter the electrophysiological characteristics of cell membranes causing weakness of the skeletal muscles.

 

Carbohydrates and sugar (present as glucose and sucrose): Energy Provider

Sugars and soluble carbohydrates are fundamental for providing energy for the maintenance of life. During exercise sugar in its simplest form of glucose is fundamental for the ease of metabolism into expendable energy.

 

Calcium: Strong bones and Muscle contraction

Calciums primary role is structural, around 99% of calcium is found in bones and teeth. A prolonged calcium deficiency will increase the risk of low bone mineral density and stress fractures in athletes. It is also an essential mineral for muscle function and contraction as well as being essential for synthesis and breakdown of glycogen fuel stores in your muscles.

 

Magnesium: Relaxes Muscles

Magnesium works closely with calcium, while calcium is important for the contraction of your muscles, magnesium helps them relax. Therefore, it is clear how important the combination of both calcium and magnesium is for healthy muscle function. 

Dextrose (Glucose), Sucrose, Sodium Citrate, Sea Salt, Citric Acid, Organic Flavour, Potassium Chloride, Calcium Carbonate, Magnesium Citrate and the caffeinated flavours (Raspberry Buzz, Tropical Buzz and Green Tea Buzz)  contain anhydrous caffeine (70mg in a 2 serving stickpack).

 

Nutrient Breakdown:

 

Sodium: Maintains Fluid Balance

Sodium is needed in the body for a number of reasons, the most important for endurance athletes is its role in the maintenance of extracellular fluid volume which influences the hydration of an athlete.

It is also important for the uptake of nutrients such hexose (carbohydrate) and amino acids (protein).

During extended periods of exercise it is important that sodium levels are replenished. As the bodies sodium concentration falls ECF (extracellular fluid) falls which can have detrimental effects to the bodies cells. Physiologically this will present as dizziness and faintness.

 

Sodium Citrate: Stops Cramps

Sodium citrate is added to the Tailwind Nutrition products to act as a pH regulator. When the muscles are working for extended periods of time, muscle pH will decrease and cramps take effect. The role of sodium citrate is to delay the effects of this lowering pH and prevent the build up of lactic acid in the athletes muscles to help reduce cramps and allow them to run, cycle or row for longer.

 

Potassium: Stops Muscle Weakness

Potassium is essential for the acid-base regulation and to maintain the electrophysiology of nerves and muscles. A deficiency in potassium (caused by prolonged sweating during physical activity) can alter the electrophysiological characteristics of cell membranes causing weakness of the skeletal muscles.

 

Carbohydrates and sugar (present as glucose and sucrose): Energy Provider

Sugars and soluble carbohydrates are fundamental for providing energy for the maintenance of life. During exercise sugar in its simplest form of glucose is fundamental for the ease of metabolism into expendable energy.

 

Calcium: Strong bones and Muscle contraction

Calciums primary role is structural, around 99% of calcium is found in bones and teeth. A prolonged calcium deficiency will increase the risk of low bone mineral density and stress fractures in athletes. It is also an essential mineral for muscle function and contraction as well as being essential for synthesis and breakdown of glycogen fuel stores in your muscles.

 

Magnesium: Relaxes Muscles

Magnesium works closely with calcium, while calcium is important for the contraction of your muscles, magnesium helps them relax. Therefore, it is clear how important the combination of both calcium and magnesium is for healthy muscle function.

Tasty and fantastic service
Thursday, 17 August 2017  |  Kelly

I'm lucky to have a hardy tum so have used gels for some time but was recommended to try Tailwind. It has a lovely chemical free taste and goes down (too!) easy. Definitely has helped with my longer runs and recovery. Also, the customer service was fantastic and I'll be buying again for sure. Just need to try and decide on what flavour to try next!

I love this stuff! I use it on my long training runs (anything 1hr +) and at events and it gives me great energy along the way. Massive bonus is that is has no effect at all on my gut like most of the other energy drinks and gels out there. And i love the personal note that comes with each order, it's a little thing but just a really nice touch. Thanks

It's @&£)(;:/ Awesome!
Friday, 11 August 2017  |  Andi

I have been using Tailwind for almost two years and believe that it has played no small part in my successful completion of various ultras during this time. Including, most recently, the North Downs Way 100. On this occasion, in particular, I noticed not even the slightest signs of GI distress and maintained consistent energy levels throughout the day (and a bit). Because of this, and the awesome service provided by Mike and his team in Wiltshire, I hope to continue to use it and them for a very very long time. Thank you. P.s flavour of choice is Lemon!

I'm a first-time user having heard great things about Tailwind. I have to say the personalised service is a great touch and delivery was rapid. As for the product, I went for 'berry'. I have to say it's a very nice taste Ė not sickly, not too sweet. Only used it twice so far on a couple of three hour runs, but no problems with digestion and it seemed to keep me going without he need to supplement with gels or food.

Used this on my back to back runs and although I can't manage to drink as much as recommended per hour, I managed over 3.5 hours each day with only tailwind (2 x 500ml each with 2 servings) and didn't feel I needed any supplementary gels/food.

Bought the Tailwind Nutrition for the first time as I heard great reviews about the product.

I must say, they reviews were all true! Great tasting and easy to digest. Tried it for the first time on a 2 hour run. 3 servings used in an 500 ml bottle and enough to power me throughout the run.

Will be buying more products soon to fuel me through the Stort 30 ultra in October!

I have really felt a difference in training with tailwind, compared to my long runs before. Especially 20k runs in summer conditions were so hard, but with a bottle of tailwind it feels much more manageable. Also, I donít feel completely parched after I finish, which is a bonus.

This was my 2nd purchase of Tailwind having been impressed by it's performance whilst on long bike rides in prep. for Ironman Wales. I finally undertook a long run with it yesterday (usually I'm loathe to carry any extra weight). All I can say is WOW! I took a 500ml bottle for a 2 hour run, with a fair few hills. Taking a few sips every 20 minutes made a lot of difference to my run, and I experienced none of the stomach problems which have plagued me when using other brands on course at IMW. As well as the product itself, the customer service is great - I'll soon be back for more!!!!

Tailwind multi serving bag
Wednesday, 26 July 2017  |  David

This product definitely seems to do the job in one go and enables you to travel light on those extra long runs. Would have been 5 stars other than the packaging. I decided to try the big bag after struggling on runs with the individual serving pack. Very awkward to open with Vaseline and sweat on your hands and ended up covered in the powder a few times. The larger pack put into a drinks bottle and carried as powder to be made up in other bottles along the way works well. Still struggled opening the large pack with the tear slit and had to get the scissors out.

So far so good...I've only used tailwind on 3 or 4 runs but its easy to prepare and easy to use and saves on carrying pockets/belts or bags full of gels with no annoying wrappers or sticky hands. I've been an avid gel-aholic for years now but this stuff seems to work. Service is great too, with a hand written note and plenty of advice with prompt delivery too! Well worth a dabble!

From cynic to sold!
Wednesday, 19 July 2017  |  Scott

When I first heard of Tailwind, I put it in the spam folder of my mind with the rest of the magical products out there on the market; but word of mouth (podcasts & twitter actually!) can bring even the most cynical of consumers around. And so it was with me.

Before I get into the product, let me wax lyrical for a moment about the customer service. Hands down, this is the no.1 for customer service. From the friendly advice on twitter to the hand written note with encouragement for my next race enclosed in my first order, you really can't fault the guys. Added to the swift delivery and the free soft flask I got with my order, it's been a great experience.

Right, so let's get to the juicy bit: the product!
I usually suffer headaches after a long run, it's part and parcel of what I've come to accept. After a hilly 20 miler on a very hot day, fuelled on Tailwind, I was totally fine!! Extra special considering I ran out on mile 15!

The taste is light and refreshing, not sickly sweet like most other products on the market. It's like water with a hint of fruit in my opinion, so you can keep drinking all day without getting sick of it. It also mixes tremendously easy which means it washes easily too! Bonus!

And the big winner over other drinks/gels is that it doesn't go all sticky!!

All in all, Tailwind have a new loyal customer and I have a new brilliant product!

Thank you

After being recommended Tailwind by a friend, due to me constantly 'forgetting' to take on nutrition (gels/bars etc) at regular intervals during rides and then almost hitting the wall, I thought I'd give it a try.
Can't recommend it highly enough. small regular sips is all I needed on my last sportive with no side effects. Pleasant, subtle taste and excellent customer service. Will definitely be ordering more when current supplies run low.

A well fuelled runner is a happy runner!
Wednesday, 19 July 2017  |  William

After years of using a combination of gels, energy bars and isotonic drinks to fuel my long runs, an ultra runner friend suggested I gave Tailwind a go. Ordered my first bag a couple of weeks ago, it was delivered promptly and the personalised hand written card which came with it was a nice touch. I have now completed two 21 mile training runs using only Tailwind and I'm never going back to the 'combo' I used to use. I run with a Camelbak which makes Tailwind ideal. It mixes very easily with water, tastes fine (I ordered lemon) and I had none of the stomach/gut 'issues' you often get with gels and bars. My strategy was a mouthful every mile, so much easier than rooting around for a gel or bar and then having to try and open the packaging whilst keeping the pace going. I'm so confident in Tailwind based on my initial experience that I will run my next race (Fort William marathon on 30/7) using Tailwind alone. A well fuelled runner is a happy runner 😀

Cannot recommend this product enough. Did the Race to the Stones last weekend and ran for nearly 13 hours on just Tailwind (and a couple of glasses of flat coke and some Watermelon late on) and had no issues. Really does take all the stress and hassle out of planning your food and drink strategy. Doing the Thames Path 100 next year and I believe they have pre made up Tailwind drink at the aid stations so perfect for me!

Very mild taste is a big improvement, with no sickness or bloating. Successfully used sachets on a long hot ride, the mixture of nutrition and salts kept me hydrated and fuelled.

Recently started using Tailwind for my training for Ultra and it was my only fuel. It works!!! No pesky side aches or tummy rumbles. I was able to get through a hilly course with plenty of energy.
No enduring sugar/chemical taste, however does get a bit sweet after prolonged use. Maybe that is the flavor I chose (Lemon). Quick to the blood-stream fuel, and very effective whilst training and recovery.
Prompt attention to getting my order out the door and delivered to my house, and nice note with a personal touch. Very impressed so far. Will definitely write a review after my next Ultra Race.

I have been struggling recently to find a suitable drink supplement for my cycling activities, problems have been caused particularly stomach cramps! My cycling these days is over distances up to 100 miles or so as I am now 78 years of age. I tried Tailwind out yesterday with a ride of 70 miles with a group who are all younger than I and felt comfortable in keeping up with them. The usual stomach cramps did not materialise and I recovered more quickly than usual after finishing the ride. Legs feel good the day afterwards! Will be using Tailwind for my longer solo rides and see how I get on.

So far so good
Saturday, 1 July 2017  |  Derek

After reading the many reviews I went and ordered the multi pack in orange flavour. I figured if so many long distance runners / cyclists rate it so highly then it was certainly worth trying.
I have only used it twice on a 10 and 12 mile run. Each time I used 2 scoops for a 500ml bottle. One bottle was enough on each run although I will probably use one bottle for every one hour of running in future.
The 'orange' taste is pretty negligible probably because I'm used to drinks with a much sweeter taste but as many have said it is very refreshing and more importantly it keeps the hunger pangs at bay.
I have a 40 miler coming up and will probably stick a banana or sandwich in my drop bags just in case but have a strong feeling they wont be necessary.

The only rehydration product I would recommend
Thursday, 29 June 2017  |  Kevin

Like many other long distance runners, I started off rehydrating using a number of products, while supplementing with gels/energy sachets/bars. The one perpetual issue I had beyond mile 25 was cramp. The sickly taste of fructose/glucose gels also meant I couldn't stomach them thereafter. However, I recently came to Tailwind and have since used this on a 26-mile trail marathon in the Lake District and a 53-mile race in Scotland (the Fling). No cramp, good performance and very drinkable once mixed with water. I am really impressed and will use this as my go to hydration/electrolyte product again and again.

I was recommended Tailwind by a few friends who have used the product for many years when competing in Ironman distance events and numerous ultra's.

Having never heard of the product I thought I'd check it out and have to say I am mega impressed. The main thing that you want after been on the go for hours first of all is a good tasting product which this is great, secondly something that sits well in your gut and thirdly something that actually works!

Great on all 3 points and even better customer service. Such a great personal touch with the order and after care I feel like I am not just a number but Tailwind actually give a monkeys about each individual they serve. Great job i will be using Tailwind as my drink of choice going forward.
