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.

Thankyou so much for my delivery which came the day before my event , I know it was in the hands of the postal service but still it arrived !
That reminds me to order a few days before , not the day before.
The product itself I can't fault , I mixed 2 scoops per 300ml of water for a stronger drink as I needed to get calories in being a heavy runner (110kg)
No stomach issues , and managed a faster marathon time with less walk breaks

Thursday, 19 October 2017  | 

First time with multi serving bag (I've used stick-packs up until now to find my favourite flavours - all of them!) Previously I've used the stick packs to get dialled in. I tend to use 3 stickpacks in 2.5l water in my camelbak for a 3hr run, seems to keep me happy/strong. My first trail marathon looms, and I'm gonna shove in a green tea caffeine hit for the last 10K! Great personalised customer service from the team too - always a cheery note of encouragement with your order, which is a lovely touch.

The multi-serve bag makes it much easier to mix Tailwind to your desired strength than the stick packs, however I'd recommend trying the stick packs first to find the flavour(s) that suits you.

Have been using Tailwind for a couple of months now without any of the stomach issues I've suffered with gels.

Tuesday, 17 October 2017  | 

Finally a product I can take on my long runs that doesnít give me a dodgy tummy. Iíve always struggled to take on enough nutrition especially during long runs over 18 miles. This has left me in a bad way at the end of marathons where Iím usually sick to my stomach and dizzy. Tailwind has helped me greatly to stabilize my intake so I can finish stronger. Thank you for this product.

Been using Tailwind for more or less a year now and my love affair continues ... Seen me through multi day jungle races, 100 milers, 50 milers and many long runs. I've said it before but for me the strength is how the "small sips, often" just seem to smooth things out. I keep handing the sachets out to friends so this time I have gone for the large 50 serving multipack to keep it to myself!

Fantastic Service and Product
Monday, 9 October 2017  | 

I have Tailwind used during long training runs and for two marathons (London 2017 and Chester 2017) and canít rate it highly enough.
Itís simple to use, even mid run and the formula doesnít give me any unwanted side effects.
Other products left me nauseous or needing water as well but Tailwind on its own is enough. No need for any other food or drink.
I have already recommended Tailwind to other runners and they have all been as equally impressed as I am.

I started using Tailwind Raspberry Fizz with Caffeine, earlier this year, at the recommendation of a friend. It hits the spot throughout - no gut problems and I remain well hydrated and fuelled throughout marathons, ultras and heavy and long run training days. No need for gels or other nibbles - its all in here!

Time for something new
Wednesday, 27 September 2017  | 

Having constantly searched for product to keep me both fed and hydrated during Ironman events I came across Tailwind via a customer of my shop, Base2Race in Dublin. I ordered the Raspberry Fizz with caffeine and the standard lemon drink and received it within a couple of days, nicely personalised and with a hand written note from the guys which is a great touch. I loaded up for a long 5 hour bik ride and was oth delighted and amazed by the results.... never felt the pangs of hunger and energy levels were perfect. As I write this I am in Lanzarote for a weeks training and my 6 hour bike yesterday in the heat and wind wind that only this island can throw at you was entirely fueled by a mix of both drinks. I did have to take on extra water but kept to the appropriate leeks in my fuel otters and am delighted to report that this is the way forward for me and without doubt will be fuelling me come Novembers ace. Top product with top service. Who could ask for more!

Monday, 18 September 2017  | 

after many years of ultrarunning I still keep struggling with nutrition. So time to give Tailwind a try. I've been using the naked flavor on an 3 hrs. training run without any other energy source. I took little sips every km and the run went very smooth. Can't wait till next weekend and give Tailwind a go at a 60km run.
Thanks for the customer service as well; a handwritten card and my name on the product. I like those details!

Marathon PB with Tailwind
Wednesday, 13 September 2017  | 

I have just run my third marathon, and had used gels in my previous two. I felt sickly and bloated at the conclusion of those thanks to the gel consumption, and neither finishing times were where I felt I could be at my best.

I switched to Tailwind for my recent third marathon, as a friend had recommended it from his own experience. I can now say first hand it's brilliant! I was nervous of using it at first, as I thought without the substance of a gel I may feel low on energy or hungry during long runs, but that's not the case at all.

Tailwind is so easy to consume on the move (I ran the Marathon with my Camelbak). I put three scoops in my 1.5 litre reservoir for the marathon and took two good sips at every mile marker, and that saw me comfortably to the end without hitting a wall or feeling under nourished. I also stayed hydrated all the way without taking on any additional water at the stations.

I ran a PB in the marathon using Tailwind and a lot of that was down to how I felt in the later stages of the run thanks to the quality of the product.

I can't recommend it highly enough!

First Ultra
Monday, 11 September 2017  | 

I had started using mandarin tailwind during longer training runs and found the flavour and palatability just about right. I used the same in my first 100k ultra SVP100 in August. No stomach issues and it was nice not to worry about hydration/fuel needs on a pretty warm day. The same taste became a bit sweet later on and another time I'd take a mix and probably a couple of caffeine shots for later in the run. Pretty impressed though and will order a variety Pack next time.

It does the business!
Sunday, 10 September 2017  | 

I'm just starting to up my distance and after a spectacular bonk at 16 miles a while back a couple of my friends recommended Tailwind. I've just returned from 22 miles fuelled by nothing but Tailwind and a couple of Jelly Babies and it was great! No dips in energy, no hissy fits, no bonking and no stomach problems. I haven't tried any other flavours yet, but Naked is perfect for me: just the right combination of citrus and salt. I'm definitely converted.
The service was great and delivery nice and speedy - well done Tailwind.

Excellent fuel for long, hot rides
Tuesday, 5 September 2017  | 

I was recommended tailwind by a friend who has used it as their main energy source for a marathon. I doubted that it would work for long sportive cycle events but thought I would give it a go. I am pleased to say that I have now used tailwind as my only energy source for 3, 4 and 5 hour rides and have nothing but positive things to report - it maintained my energy level, it isn't difficult to digest and doesn't leave a strong after taste. I will be using this at Velo Birmingham.

I'm a bit new to long trail runs and have been struggling all summer with getting hungry and losing enthusiasm towards the second half of longer runs....I was recommended Tailwind and tried it last weekend on a 28km trail run. It was by far the most enjoyable long run of the summer - I felt great, didn't get hungry and actually ran quicker than I expected! Cannot recommend this product enough!!

Like other reviewers, I found the personal service provided brilliant. No need to use anything else or order from anywhere other than direct with this brilliant company.

So far so good!
Wednesday, 30 August 2017  | 

For the last few years I have always had stomach issues on both the bike and the run. It seems my body is unable to tolerate gels.

Having signed up for a full Ironman, I needed to find an alternative. With a bit research, I quickly found tailwind. I have tried it on my last 2 long spins and I didn't bonk or have any stomach issues. So far so good. Only minor issue was a bit of thirst due to salt content.

If this product get me through the Barcelona Ironman relatively intact, I will revisit this site and upgrade rating to 5 stars. It's a good product based on my experience so far.

Customer service is also excellent.

I have been using Tailwind before, during and after my runs or bike rides.
In the past few days I have ended up in hospital as an emergency due to a stomach problem.
I had been on intravenous fluids only but when allowed oral clear fluids I was permitted the Tailwind. This is where I have found how efficient the product is. Two days without food and no appetite but Tailwind has been a Godsend, thank you so much.

Raspberry Buzz

I was a bit dubious when I ordered this drink. I suffer with IBS and only use certain drinks. I first tried this drink whilst still at home, not a twinge. I have used it several times and went out today and ran 20 miles. This drink is great, the flavour is not overpowering and i didn't have any problems whilst out. I would definitely recommend it to people with stomach problems as it's very easy on the stomach. I bought the raspberry buzz 50 servings. Have to keep running to use it up so I can try another flavour. I highly recommend this product. Oh and it arrived very quickly as well.

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!

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).

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.

Thankyou so much for my delivery which came the day before my event , I know it was in the hands of the postal service but still it arrived !
That reminds me to order a few days before , not the day before.
The product itself I can't fault , I mixed 2 scoops per 300ml of water for a stronger drink as I needed to get calories in being a heavy runner (110kg)
No stomach issues , and managed a faster marathon time with less walk breaks

Thursday, 19 October 2017  |  Elton

First time with multi serving bag (I've used stick-packs up until now to find my favourite flavours - all of them!) Previously I've used the stick packs to get dialled in. I tend to use 3 stickpacks in 2.5l water in my camelbak for a 3hr run, seems to keep me happy/strong. My first trail marathon looms, and I'm gonna shove in a green tea caffeine hit for the last 10K! Great personalised customer service from the team too - always a cheery note of encouragement with your order, which is a lovely touch.

The multi-serve bag makes it much easier to mix Tailwind to your desired strength than the stick packs, however I'd recommend trying the stick packs first to find the flavour(s) that suits you.

Have been using Tailwind for a couple of months now without any of the stomach issues I've suffered with gels.

Finally a product I can take on my long runs that doesnít give me a dodgy tummy. Iíve always struggled to take on enough nutrition especially during long runs over 18 miles. This has left me in a bad way at the end of marathons where Iím usually sick to my stomach and dizzy. Tailwind has helped me greatly to stabilize my intake so I can finish stronger. Thank you for this product.

Been using Tailwind for more or less a year now and my love affair continues ... Seen me through multi day jungle races, 100 milers, 50 milers and many long runs. I've said it before but for me the strength is how the "small sips, often" just seem to smooth things out. I keep handing the sachets out to friends so this time I have gone for the large 50 serving multipack to keep it to myself!

Fantastic Service and Product
Monday, 9 October 2017  |  Helen

I have Tailwind used during long training runs and for two marathons (London 2017 and Chester 2017) and canít rate it highly enough.
Itís simple to use, even mid run and the formula doesnít give me any unwanted side effects.
Other products left me nauseous or needing water as well but Tailwind on its own is enough. No need for any other food or drink.
I have already recommended Tailwind to other runners and they have all been as equally impressed as I am.

Time for something new
Wednesday, 27 September 2017  |  Paul

Having constantly searched for product to keep me both fed and hydrated during Ironman events I came across Tailwind via a customer of my shop, Base2Race in Dublin. I ordered the Raspberry Fizz with caffeine and the standard lemon drink and received it within a couple of days, nicely personalised and with a hand written note from the guys which is a great touch. I loaded up for a long 5 hour bik ride and was oth delighted and amazed by the results.... never felt the pangs of hunger and energy levels were perfect. As I write this I am in Lanzarote for a weeks training and my 6 hour bike yesterday in the heat and wind wind that only this island can throw at you was entirely fueled by a mix of both drinks. I did have to take on extra water but kept to the appropriate leeks in my fuel otters and am delighted to report that this is the way forward for me and without doubt will be fuelling me come Novembers ace. Top product with top service. Who could ask for more!

after many years of ultrarunning I still keep struggling with nutrition. So time to give Tailwind a try. I've been using the naked flavor on an 3 hrs. training run without any other energy source. I took little sips every km and the run went very smooth. Can't wait till next weekend and give Tailwind a go at a 60km run.

Marathon PB with Tailwind
Wednesday, 13 September 2017  |  Darren

I have just run my third marathon, and had used gels in my previous two. I felt sickly and bloated at the conclusion of those thanks to the gel consumption, and neither finishing times were where I felt I could be at my best.

I switched to Tailwind for my recent third marathon, as a friend had recommended it from his own experience. I can now say first hand it's brilliant! I was nervous of using it at first, as I thought without the substance of a gel I may feel low on energy or hungry during long runs, but that's not the case at all.

Tailwind is so easy to consume on the move (I ran the Marathon with my Camelbak). I put three scoops in my 1.5 litre reservoir for the marathon and took two good sips at every mile marker, and that saw me comfortably to the end without hitting a wall or feeling under nourished. I also stayed hydrated all the way without taking on any additional water at the stations.

I ran a PB in the marathon using Tailwind and a lot of that was down to how I felt in the later stages of the run thanks to the quality of the product.

I can't recommend it highly enough!

First Ultra
Monday, 11 September 2017  |  Daniel

I had started using mandarin tailwind during longer training runs and found the flavour and palatability just about right. I used the same in my first 100k ultra SVP100 in August. No stomach issues and it was nice not to worry about hydration/fuel needs on a pretty warm day. The same taste became a bit sweet later on and another time I'd take a mix and probably a couple of caffeine shots for later in the run. Pretty impressed though and will order a variety Pack next time.

Sunday, 10 September 2017  |  Anne

I'm just starting to up my distance and after a spectacular bonk at 16 miles a while back a couple of my friends recommended Tailwind. I've just returned from 22 miles fuelled by nothing but Tailwind and a couple of Jelly Babies and it was great! No dips in energy, no hissy fits, no bonking and no stomach problems. I haven't tried any other flavours yet, but Naked is perfect for me: just the right combination of citrus and salt. I'm definitely converted.
The service was great and delivery nice and speedy - well done Tailwind.

Excellent fuel for long, hot rides
Tuesday, 5 September 2017  |  Mark

I was recommended tailwind by a friend who has used it as their main energy source for a marathon. I doubted that it would work for long sportive cycle events but thought I would give it a go. I am pleased to say that I have now used tailwind as my only energy source for 3, 4 and 5 hour rides and have nothing but positive things to report - it maintained my energy level, it isn't difficult to digest and doesn't leave a strong after taste. I will be using this at Velo Birmingham.

I'm a bit new to long trail runs and have been struggling all summer with getting hungry and losing enthusiasm towards the second half of longer runs....I was recommended Tailwind and tried it last weekend on a 28km trail run. It was by far the most enjoyable long run of the summer - I felt great, didn't get hungry and actually ran quicker than I expected! Cannot recommend this product enough!!

Wednesday, 30 August 2017  |  Andrew

For the last few years I have always had stomach issues on both the bike and the run. It seems my body is unable to tolerate gels.

Having signed up for a full Ironman, I needed to find an alternative. With a bit research, I quickly found tailwind. I have tried it on my last 2 long spins and I didn't bonk or have any stomach issues. So far so good. Only minor issue was a bit of thirst due to salt content.

If this product get me through the Barcelona Ironman relatively intact, I will revisit this site and upgrade rating to 5 stars. It's a good product based on my experience so far.

Customer service is also excellent.

I had been on intravenous fluids only but when allowed oral clear fluids I was permitted the Tailwind. This is where I have found how efficient the product is. Two days without food and no appetite but Tailwind has been a Godsend, thank you so much.

I was a bit dubious when I ordered this drink. I suffer with IBS and only use certain drinks. I first tried this drink whilst still at home, not a twinge. I have used it several times and went out today and ran 20 miles. This drink is great, the flavour is not overpowering and i didn't have any problems whilst out. I would definitely recommend it to people with stomach problems as it's very easy on the stomach. I bought the raspberry buzz 50 servings. Have to keep running to use it up so I can try another flavour. I highly recommend this product. Oh and it arrived very quickly as well.

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!
