  • 2 New flavours -- Caffeinated Tropical Buzz and Caffeinated Green Tea arrived in February 2016

Usage

Tailwind was originally sold in tubs with a serving scoop that measured 100 calories and this was nominated as 1 serving. In practice most users would put 2 scoops in a drinks bottle so the 2 serving stickpack was developed for easier refuelling on the move.

Each 2 serving stick pack contains 200 calories. Mix contents with 20-24oz (500-700ml)of cool, clean water. Give it a shake or two, and go! Sip regularly for steady energy, electrolytes, and hydration. For longer efforts, try our medium (30 serving) and large (50 serving) sizes.

Select the flavour from the radio buttons below and then the quantity to add to your basket.

  (901 Reviews)

Each serving is 100 calories.

For endurance workouts, mix contents of 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.

How is it that something so simple is this good. Easy to use, pleasant taste, great selection in the mixed pack, but above all has to be the immediate noticeable difference when used during exercise. Energy levels up, endurance up, confidence up

A change from Clif Bars
Wednesday, 18 October 2017  | 

On taking the plunge and entering the UT 55k next year, i was looking for something else apart from the Clif bars and water I've been using up to now. The 2 serving stick packs have been great for the 2x500ml bottles I carry and have seen me through my normal long training run (20miles/4 hrs). As I should be drinking at least 1.5ltrs to get the calories for that length of time, I'm going to try 3 scoops per bottle on my next day out. The only downside I have found is that the 2 serving stick packs are hard to open fully as when you tear along the perforations, the pack is still sealed, requiring scissors to open the rest. Okay in the kitchen but not at a feed station. Apart from that, they have been great so far.

Wanted to try something new
Wednesday, 18 October 2017  | 

Brilliant service from Tailwind. My order arrived the day after I ordered. Still early days, but I tried it for the first time on an 11 mile run with no nausea & no stomach problems. I mixed 2/3 of a stick pack with 400ml of water & that was just enough to have a sip every half a mile or so. Last 2 miles were my quickest, so a good run! I really struggle to eat gels or solid food while running so Iím hoping this will see me through my second half marathon in November & my first full Marathon in May!

Hi
I used tailwind for first time on sunday , I'd had little food before hand so when I set off up the fell I felt a little jaded straight away but really that's what I wanted do I could see what it's like from a low ebb
I started sipping from the off and within 10 mins or so felt relaxed and my normal running self the run was only 9mile with 2000ft of climb but I felt so hydrated and energetic at end of run (1 stick only ) can't wait to try out on bob graham recces and TDEH

It keeps me running
Wednesday, 11 October 2017  | 

Iíve been a runner for years and like a lot of runners fuel has been an issue. If a run hasnít gone well guaranteed itís been down to a big dip in energy which has left me feeling weak or nauseous or Iíve indulged in mid run refuelling which has left me, you guessed it, nauseous. After hearing about Tailwind from ultra running buddies I thought Iíd give it a go and I am delighted to say the difference it has made to my long runs is remarkable. I can refuel in the run easily, wth all the benefits and non of the unpleasant side effects. Itís easy to mix, easy to digest and keeps me going. I remain fuelled up throughout my run without the need for any additional snacks. And as for the nausea, not a problem at all. My stomach feels spot on throughout. I honestly am totally converted to Tailwind and will certainly be packing it for the Manchester Half Marathon this month.

Great quality product.
Wednesday, 4 October 2017  | 

Bought some tailwind after seeing it on a YouTube video being used for a 50mile race and it was very much recommended. I had a quick look into it and thought I would give it a try. It seemed to work really well for me as I had a mountain marathon recently and only used 3 gels and a chocolate bar along with the tail wind! It was very easy on the stomach and had no issues at all. For me it's a wee bit of a salty taste but the flavour counters that well. I will definitely be buying more and certainly be recommending it to others. Thanks for a quality and very friendly service too.

Can't recommend enough!
Tuesday, 26 September 2017  | 

I used the tailwind sticks on the recent Vťlo Birmingham. The sticks were just the right size to conveniently fit in my jersey and pop in my bottles when I topped up at a water station.
I was able to sip away at tailwind conveniently where before I would have been faffing around trying to chuck gels down my throat. I didn't experience any hunger or 'bonk' and there was none of the sickness feeling normally associated with gels.
The added bonus was getting the handwritten postcard and the email wishing me good luck on my event, great customer service

I had ordered from a major online retailer, who then couldn't deliver in time for my ultra race. I contacted Tailwind direct who delivered the next day to my hotel so it was there before me!!!

In addition Tailwind worked as promised on the day, didn't use my normal gels and none of my usual stomach problems. Great product for me.

Why have I only just found Tailwind now?!???
Monday, 18 September 2017  | 

I bought the 2 serving stickpack trail pack to give this supplement a try after being told abou how good it was in a recent ultr race I took part in. The guy who won the race told me that this is all he uses during events and that he only needs to stop for water replenishment. He saved wel over 30mins because of this. He said he gets all he needs from tailwind and so I had to give it a go. And boy am I impressed. I've only used it in training runs but the feeling of freshness I have at the start is the same as I feel at the end. This stuff is the bomb. I can't wait untily next ultra race to really put it to the test. Thanks guys!!!! This is a miracle worker!!!

I actually can't believe the difference Tailwind has made
Monday, 18 September 2017  | 

I actually can't believe the difference Tailwind has made to my races. My training hasn't been great (new job) however my mindset was different and having only tried Tailwind on one long run before the GNR, I was putting my trust in all the reviews I'd read - and boy were they right! 35 minutes knocked off last year's GNR time with no need to eat anything, then yesterday I knocked another seven minutes off that time at the English Half Marathon for a half marathon PB of 2:25!! To say I'm over the moon would be an understatement!

I had become tired of the spikes with various gels and stumbled upon Tailwind. I used it on a 20 mile long run to good effect. The real test is the Chigaco marathon in three weeks so fingers crossed everything goes to plan. So far so good and top marks to Tailwind for service.

Tailwind 2-stick (berry)
Tuesday, 12 September 2017  | 

I have IBS and struggle to find gels etc that don't upset my system but I had heard good things about Tailwind from friends who run and have the same issues, so as I had the Great North Run coming up I decided to give it a go. I ordered the multipack. Service was extremely quick and the little handwritten advice note inside was a lovely touch. This was followed up with an email from Fred. During the run I did as advised, a couple of sips every 10-15 mins and at no point did I feel ill or hungry, in fact I didn't get hungry until a good 2 hours after I had finished!!! I never got fatigued either and that was on just the one 2-stick pack!!!
I cannot recommend Tailwind enough - it is fantastic to finally find something that works and, more importantly, does not affect my tum!! Thank you Tailwind team, for such a good product that actually does what it says, and to your team who are quick and efficient but friendly and full of advice

Switched to "Tailwind" from water & gel's after recommendation's from friend's. Brilliant, no more sickly gel's & dreadful stomach cramp's!

But now I can look forward to York marathon & an ultra 3 week's later, knowing that stomach cramp's won't make any impact on my performance.

My first try of Tailwind after reading a lot about it & not having a great time with gels & salt tablets. A single stick pack & I felt energised & good on a 2 hour low intensity training run. No stomach issues & the flavour is pleasant but neutral. Definitely keen to try some other flavours under different conditions.

Perfect for topping up mid ride
Tuesday, 5 September 2017  | 

As others have said, Tailwind has proven to be an ideal energy source for long sportive rides. A couple of stickpacks in the back of your jersey can be used to add to your water bottle(s) when you refill at rest points (aka cake & coffee shops) on really long rides. Also, if you opt for a selection, you can work out which flavours work best for you.

Tuesday, 5 September 2017  | 

I am officially rubbish at fuelling and have ruined many a long run / marathon simply by not fuelling correctly. So many things would upset my stomach that I ended up just not having enough of anything and being ill after a run of any distance. After being recommended by a friend and reading lots of reviews, I decided to give Tailwind a go. I filled my hydration pack with water and a couple of sticks, set off to complete the City to Sea marathon and had my best run ever. I was even able to eat the free fish and chips at the end. Absolutely brilliant stuff - I will be using this all the time now for my long runs. Thank you

I originally used this in Hong Kong and panicked when moving to the UK that I wouldn't be able to get it anymore because it is hands-down the best running nutrition I have tried.

This stuff actually works!!
Monday, 4 September 2017  | 

After a disappointing 50 miler due to not being on top of my nutrition and hydration, I thought I'd give Tailwind a go. I ordered the 2 serving stickpacks on a Wednesday and they were delivered by the Friday of the same week, in time to use them for that weekend's LSR - perfect!!. It kept me fueled and hydrated perfectly for the 20 miles. I deliberately held off reviewing until after this weekends LSR of 26 miles as it would be a tougher test, and again it worked perfectly: I didn't start flagging around the 17 - 20 mile mark as I usually do, and didn't get the gnawing hunger feeling that normally accompanies the tail end of LSR's for me. Thank you Tailwind - I'm now looking forward to my next ultra in a few weeks knowing that my race nutrition is in safe hands

Tailwind 2 serving stickpacks
Thursday, 31 August 2017  | 

So far I have used the mandarin and the lemon flavours and have been impressed with their palatability and the way they seem to be giving me useful energy and electrolyte hydration. Unusually for me I am actually following your instructions and have set my phone to remind me to have a couple of sips every 10 mins, ensuring I complete a 500ml bottle in an hour. On a 23km run today I even felt slightly hungry just before several of the 10 minute intervals passed so was looking forward to the next sips.
I can only give 4 stars because the longest runs I have completed using Tailwind so far have only been 2 hours and for me the real test comes when I go for more than 5 hours or so. If I am still managing 500ml per hour with no stomach problems I will certainly re-review the product and give the 5 star rating. So far, so good and I am enjoying experimenting with a new system of nutrition.

Great product, but too difficult to open
Wednesday, 30 August 2017  | 

It does what is says !
Good energy, no stomach issue, light taste... I really like it.
The only issue is with the packaging... I find the sticks very difficult to open with bare/sweaty hands. It's a pity to have to bring a pair of scissors for the long runs !

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.

How is it that something so simple is this good. Easy to use, pleasant taste, great selection in the mixed pack, but above all has to be the immediate noticeable difference when used during exercise. Energy levels up, endurance up, confidence up

A change from Clif Bars
Wednesday, 18 October 2017  |  Ian

On taking the plunge and entering the UT 55k next year, i was looking for something else apart from the Clif bars and water I've been using up to now. The 2 serving stick packs have been great for the 2x500ml bottles I carry and have seen me through my normal long training run (20miles/4 hrs). As I should be drinking at least 1.5ltrs to get the calories for that length of time, I'm going to try 3 scoops per bottle on my next day out. The only downside I have found is that the 2 serving stick packs are hard to open fully as when you tear along the perforations, the pack is still sealed, requiring scissors to open the rest. Okay in the kitchen but not at a feed station. Apart from that, they have been great so far.

Wanted to try something new
Wednesday, 18 October 2017  |  Emily

Brilliant service from Tailwind. My order arrived the day after I ordered. Still early days, but I tried it for the first time on an 11 mile run with no nausea & no stomach problems. I mixed 2/3 of a stick pack with 400ml of water & that was just enough to have a sip every half a mile or so. Last 2 miles were my quickest, so a good run! I really struggle to eat gels or solid food while running so Iím hoping this will see me through my second half marathon in November & my first full Marathon in May!

Hi
I used tailwind for first time on sunday , I'd had little food before hand so when I set off up the fell I felt a little jaded straight away but really that's what I wanted do I could see what it's like from a low ebb
I started sipping from the off and within 10 mins or so felt relaxed and my normal running self the run was only 9mile with 2000ft of climb but I felt so hydrated and energetic at end of run (1 stick only ) can't wait to try out on bob graham recces and TDEH

It keeps me running
Wednesday, 11 October 2017  |  Brett

Iíve been a runner for years and like a lot of runners fuel has been an issue. If a run hasnít gone well guaranteed itís been down to a big dip in energy which has left me feeling weak or nauseous or Iíve indulged in mid run refuelling which has left me, you guessed it, nauseous. After hearing about Tailwind from ultra running buddies I thought Iíd give it a go and I am delighted to say the difference it has made to my long runs is remarkable. I can refuel in the run easily, wth all the benefits and non of the unpleasant side effects. Itís easy to mix, easy to digest and keeps me going. I remain fuelled up throughout my run without the need for any additional snacks. And as for the nausea, not a problem at all. My stomach feels spot on throughout. I honestly am totally converted to Tailwind and will certainly be packing it for the Manchester Half Marathon this month.

Wednesday, 4 October 2017  |  Ben

Bought some tailwind after seeing it on a YouTube video being used for a 50mile race and it was very much recommended. I had a quick look into it and thought I would give it a try. It seemed to work really well for me as I had a mountain marathon recently and only used 3 gels and a chocolate bar along with the tail wind! It was very easy on the stomach and had no issues at all. For me it's a wee bit of a salty taste but the flavour counters that well. I will definitely be buying more and certainly be recommending it to others. Thanks for a quality and very friendly service too.

Tuesday, 26 September 2017  |  Darren

I used the tailwind sticks on the recent Vťlo Birmingham. The sticks were just the right size to conveniently fit in my jersey and pop in my bottles when I topped up at a water station.
I was able to sip away at tailwind conveniently where before I would have been faffing around trying to chuck gels down my throat. I didn't experience any hunger or 'bonk' and there was none of the sickness feeling normally associated with gels.
The added bonus was getting the handwritten postcard and the email wishing me good luck on my event, great customer service

Why have I only just found Tailwind now?!???
Monday, 18 September 2017  |  John

I bought the 2 serving stickpack trail pack to give this supplement a try after being told abou how good it was in a recent ultr race I took part in. The guy who won the race told me that this is all he uses during events and that he only needs to stop for water replenishment. He saved wel over 30mins because of this. He said he gets all he needs from tailwind and so I had to give it a go. And boy am I impressed. I've only used it in training runs but the feeling of freshness I have at the start is the same as I feel at the end. This stuff is the bomb. I can't wait untily next ultra race to really put it to the test. Thanks guys!!!! This is a miracle worker!!!

Monday, 18 September 2017  |  Laura

I actually can't believe the difference Tailwind has made to my races. My training hasn't been great (new job) however my mindset was different and having only tried Tailwind on one long run before the GNR, I was putting my trust in all the reviews I'd read - and boy were they right! 35 minutes knocked off last year's GNR time with no need to eat anything, then yesterday I knocked another seven minutes off that time at the English Half Marathon for a half marathon PB of 2:25!! To say I'm over the moon would be an understatement!

Tailwind 2-stick (berry)
Tuesday, 12 September 2017  |  Penny

I have IBS and struggle to find gels etc that don't upset my system but I had heard good things about Tailwind from friends who run and have the same issues, so as I had the Great North Run coming up I decided to give it a go. I ordered the multipack. Service was extremely quick and the little handwritten advice note inside was a lovely touch. This was followed up with an email from Fred. During the run I did as advised, a couple of sips every 10-15 mins and at no point did I feel ill or hungry, in fact I didn't get hungry until a good 2 hours after I had finished!!! I never got fatigued either and that was on just the one 2-stick pack!!!
I cannot recommend Tailwind enough - it is fantastic to finally find something that works and, more importantly, does not affect my tum!! Thank you Tailwind team, for such a good product that actually does what it says, and to your team who are quick and efficient but friendly and full of advice

As others have said, Tailwind has proven to be an ideal energy source for long sportive rides. A couple of stickpacks in the back of your jersey can be used to add to your water bottle(s) when you refill at rest points (aka cake & coffee shops) on really long rides. Also, if you opt for a selection, you can work out which flavours work best for you.

I am officially rubbish at fuelling and have ruined many a long run / marathon simply by not fuelling correctly. So many things would upset my stomach that I ended up just not having enough of anything and being ill after a run of any distance. After being recommended by a friend and reading lots of reviews, I decided to give Tailwind a go. I filled my hydration pack with water and a couple of sticks, set off to complete the City to Sea marathon and had my best run ever. I was even able to eat the free fish and chips at the end. Absolutely brilliant stuff - I will be using this all the time now for my long runs. Thank you

Monday, 4 September 2017  |  Garry

After a disappointing 50 miler due to not being on top of my nutrition and hydration, I thought I'd give Tailwind a go. I ordered the 2 serving stickpacks on a Wednesday and they were delivered by the Friday of the same week, in time to use them for that weekend's LSR - perfect!!. It kept me fueled and hydrated perfectly for the 20 miles. I deliberately held off reviewing until after this weekends LSR of 26 miles as it would be a tougher test, and again it worked perfectly: I didn't start flagging around the 17 - 20 mile mark as I usually do, and didn't get the gnawing hunger feeling that normally accompanies the tail end of LSR's for me. Thank you Tailwind - I'm now looking forward to my next ultra in a few weeks knowing that my race nutrition is in safe hands

Tailwind 2 serving stickpacks
Thursday, 31 August 2017  |  Simon

So far I have used the mandarin and the lemon flavours and have been impressed with their palatability and the way they seem to be giving me useful energy and electrolyte hydration. Unusually for me I am actually following your instructions and have set my phone to remind me to have a couple of sips every 10 mins, ensuring I complete a 500ml bottle in an hour. On a 23km run today I even felt slightly hungry just before several of the 10 minute intervals passed so was looking forward to the next sips.
I can only give 4 stars because the longest runs I have completed using Tailwind so far have only been 2 hours and for me the real test comes when I go for more than 5 hours or so. If I am still managing 500ml per hour with no stomach problems I will certainly re-review the product and give the 5 star rating. So far, so good and I am enjoying experimenting with a new system of nutrition.

It does what is says !
Good energy, no stomach issue, light taste... I really like it.
The only issue is with the packaging... I find the sticks very difficult to open with bare/sweaty hands. It's a pity to have to bring a pair of scissors for the long runs !
