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.

Ironman Staffordshire
Wednesday, 21 June 2017  | 

I was recommended this product by someone who also struggled with their system during endurance events. I was training for ironman Staffordshire and looking for nutrition to train to train with and use for the event. Gels in the past have given me problems and I just don't have that much of a sweet tooth so found
It hard to stomach sweet bars during long rides and other nutrition products. I decided to give Tailwind a go and it's simplicity really gave me hope. I'm not disappointed it worked well in training, at first I ordered the mixed pack to try the different flavours. The flavours are subtle and they my surprise I choose the unflavoured as my bulk buy. I usually find I crave the clean tast of water when I'm on long rides but with tailwind you don't get that strong aftertaste so it's easy to consume. I used it in training and race day and it got me through some tough heat conditions 30 degrees I just kept on top of it and completed my first ironman 70.30 with no stomach problems and remained hydrated, plus it kept me fuelled.
five stars for service a lovely little handwritten note in the box and to my absolute surprise an email before my event wishing me luck, a first for me and great touch! Thanks Tailwind

Tailwind is a fantastic product for meeting nutritional needs on long runs! The scoop is a simple and straightforward way of measuring out the product.
It would be good if the large bag came with a flat piece of flexible plastic, to use as a funnel to get the product into bottles more easily.
Overall, I am very impressed with tailwind as a product, and a company!

Stomach says no to everything bar water. This product is working for me and at IM 70.3 staffs 2017 (first time relying on TW throughout) notwithstanding 31 degree temps I got.

Great product great service. This product delivers and is all that is needed for endurance events. Completed first half distance triathlon with this product and more than ample.

I have been training for long races recently and I ran out of tailwind and I thought I'd be fine without it. I was wrong. I replenished my stock and went out at the weekend with nothing other than tailwind to see me through my long run.. I felt strong throughout , no need for bars of chocolate, gels or sandwiches.

Tailwind Raspberry Buzz
Friday, 26 May 2017  | 

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.

Impressed! Using Tailwind only for half ironman
Monday, 22 May 2017  | 

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!

What a difference!
Monday, 22 May 2017  | 

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.

So Far So Good
Tuesday, 16 May 2017  | 

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.

Tailwind to the rescue
Wednesday, 10 May 2017  | 

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

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!!!

Great product that just works...
Tuesday, 9 May 2017  | 

First of all it's not often I write a review, however I have to say that this product has made such a difference to my running performance. I've used the product for just over a year now and it's absolutely great. I always used to find it hard taking on sticky gells and other food items on ultra marathon distances so I have to say this stuff is a real godsend. It's not too overpowering in flavour and very easy on the stomach. im now able to run 26 plus miles using this stuff alone with no other food items which I couldn't do before. I've tried loads of other products but nothing comes close to tailwind.

I'm testing Trailwind approaching the GUCR. Using it as a basis for my nutrition on long runs, I've done a couple of 40s, couple of 30s, with no stomach issues. Also means i have less reliance on food, so have to carry less and worry about what to eat less. Lemon flavour is good, smells like lemon bonbons. Hoping it will work for all 145 miles of GUCR...!

Thursday, 27 April 2017  | 

Let's start by saying that i'm one of the biggest skeptics re powders, gels and magic potions & lotions and have long been an advocate of real food only, but having read about tailwind on various ultra forums, decided to give it a go on the 2017 vale of glamorgan ultra. I was quite late finding out about tailwind, so only purchased it 2 weeks before the ultra. Delivery was really quick and the handwritten card and other personal touches within the package are a masterstroke and most welcomed! Add this to the pre-event emails and it is nice to see a company going that extra mile.

For testing, an initial short (~12 mile) run was inconclusive other than that the taste was great! Not salty, not sweet and nothing to give away it being fuel. A 2nd test was undertaken a week before the ultra by doing a roll-out-of-bed-and-run 16 mile clifftop run on an empty stomach and was pleasantly surprised to be feeling just as fresh 15 miles in as i was at 2 miles. For the ultra itself (~34 miles) i did little in the way of carb loading. Pre-race was my usual T -2hrs weetabix with 1 serving of tailwind about 30 mins before the off. During the race, all i used was tailwind (raspberry buzz) and it did the trick perfectly! No dodgy guts, no trying to digest food, no trying to eat and run, no fiddling with food or wrappers, no sickly sweet taste, no dreading the next mouthful. The food i did take with me, just in case, never got used, so it's safe to say i'm a convert and it'll be my endurance go-to nutrition in future!

Brighton Marathon and beyond!
Wednesday, 26 April 2017  | 

I came across Tailwind whilst looking for tummy friendly fuel for my training runs and then Brighton Marathon. With its fresh light taste and no gut bomb formula it's a winner from the first sip! I have to admit I undertrained for Brighton and totally believe I wouldn't have completed it in the heat of the day if I hadn't been using Tailwind. I'm now looking for my next challenge but Tailwind will certainly be my fuel of choice. Great personalised customer service too!

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).

It hard to stomach sweet bars during long rides and other nutrition products. I decided to give Tailwind a go and it's simplicity really gave me hope. I'm not disappointed it worked well in training, at first I ordered the mixed pack to try the different flavours. The flavours are subtle and they my surprise I choose the unflavoured as my bulk buy. I usually find I crave the clean tast of water when I'm on long rides but with tailwind you don't get that strong aftertaste so it's easy to consume. I used it in training and race day and it got me through some tough heat conditions 30 degrees I just kept on top of it and completed my first ironman 70.30 with no stomach problems and remained hydrated, plus it kept me fuelled.
five stars for service a lovely little handwritten note in the box and to my absolute surprise an email before my event wishing me luck, a first for me and great touch! Thanks Tailwind

Tailwind is a fantastic product for meeting nutritional needs on long runs! The scoop is a simple and straightforward way of measuring out the product.
It would be good if the large bag came with a flat piece of flexible plastic, to use as a funnel to get the product into bottles more easily.
Overall, I am very impressed with tailwind as a product, and a company!

Stomach says no to everything bar water. This product is working for me and at IM 70.3 staffs 2017 (first time relying on TW throughout) notwithstanding 31 degree temps I got.

I replenished my stock and went out at the weekend with nothing other than tailwind to see me through my long run.. I felt strong throughout , no need for bars of chocolate, gels or sandwiches.

Friday, 26 May 2017  |  Conor

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.

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!

What a difference!
Monday, 22 May 2017  |  Lesley

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.

So Far So Good
Tuesday, 16 May 2017  |  Andrew

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.

Tailwind to the rescue
Wednesday, 10 May 2017  |  Ross

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

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!!!

Tuesday, 9 May 2017  |  Rob

First of all it's not often I write a review, however I have to say that this product has made such a difference to my running performance. I've used the product for just over a year now and it's absolutely great. I always used to find it hard taking on sticky gells and other food items on ultra marathon distances so I have to say this stuff is a real godsend. It's not too overpowering in flavour and very easy on the stomach. im now able to run 26 plus miles using this stuff alone with no other food items which I couldn't do before. I've tried loads of other products but nothing comes close to tailwind.

I'm testing Trailwind approaching the GUCR. Using it as a basis for my nutrition on long runs, I've done a couple of 40s, couple of 30s, with no stomach issues. Also means i have less reliance on food, so have to carry less and worry about what to eat less. Lemon flavour is good, smells like lemon bonbons. Hoping it will work for all 145 miles of GUCR...!

Thursday, 27 April 2017  |  Dave

Let's start by saying that i'm one of the biggest skeptics re powders, gels and magic potions & lotions and have long been an advocate of real food only, but having read about tailwind on various ultra forums, decided to give it a go on the 2017 vale of glamorgan ultra. I was quite late finding out about tailwind, so only purchased it 2 weeks before the ultra. Delivery was really quick and the handwritten card and other personal touches within the package are a masterstroke and most welcomed! Add this to the pre-event emails and it is nice to see a company going that extra mile.

For testing, an initial short (~12 mile) run was inconclusive other than that the taste was great! Not salty, not sweet and nothing to give away it being fuel. A 2nd test was undertaken a week before the ultra by doing a roll-out-of-bed-and-run 16 mile clifftop run on an empty stomach and was pleasantly surprised to be feeling just as fresh 15 miles in as i was at 2 miles. For the ultra itself (~34 miles) i did little in the way of carb loading. Pre-race was my usual T -2hrs weetabix with 1 serving of tailwind about 30 mins before the off. During the race, all i used was tailwind (raspberry buzz) and it did the trick perfectly! No dodgy guts, no trying to digest food, no trying to eat and run, no fiddling with food or wrappers, no sickly sweet taste, no dreading the next mouthful. The food i did take with me, just in case, never got used, so it's safe to say i'm a convert and it'll be my endurance go-to nutrition in future!

Brighton Marathon and beyond!
Wednesday, 26 April 2017  |  Dawn

I came across Tailwind whilst looking for tummy friendly fuel for my training runs and then Brighton Marathon. With its fresh light taste and no gut bomb formula it's a winner from the first sip! I have to admit I undertrained for Brighton and totally believe I wouldn't have completed it in the heat of the day if I hadn't been using Tailwind. I'm now looking for my next challenge but Tailwind will certainly be my fuel of choice. Great personalised customer service too!
