Tasty and fantastic service

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!

First tim user of tailwind, so little apprehensive. Arrived quickly with a nice personal note enclosed.
It comes as powder form and mixed very easily with just a couple of shakes, no real smell to it and it tasted nice with a good consistency, not sticky. The sachet was easy to open.
It used one sachet mixed with 700ml water on a 2hr ride, no gut issues and didn't feel hungry or thirsty.
Further trials needed before I use for endurance event, but great at the moment.

I received this buff with my last order and it did not disappoint.
The seamless design meant that there was no faffing around to get it sitting comfortably, and the sun protection it provided was invaluable, even in the Scottish highlands!
Simple functional fuss free kit.

Super fast delivery , just starting to use tailwind after doing Edinburgh Ironman 70.3 and talk to somebody about . Im in the middle of training for Glen Coe marothon and Salomon Ring of Steall so though i would give it a try as im Vegan and find it hard to get a good energy drink or gels . I did a long run up the hills around 3 hours out there with just tailwind and i have to say i was well inpressed just sipping it through the whole run and i never felt hungery or tired the whole 3 hour will deff useing more .

Tailwind ,what a fantastic product !!
Been running ultras for about ten years .
Completing mainly 100 milers .
Getting down calories and salt is paramount for performance in long events .
Tailwind makes that process so much easier.
Only tried the naked flavour ,but sold on it completely after my last outings in the Alps,one of 38 hrs
Steady sustained energy ,great taste ,happy stomach ,loving it and already recommended to friends .
Thanks Tailwind crew for product ,outstanding efficient service and the awesome buff neck scarf that's a must have ,in changing temps .
Best Paul Hopi ultra runner😊🌈

Arrived on time to use on an Olympic triathlon. Easy to mix and helped keep me going. No after effects either so pleased all in all

Item arrived very quickly and was very well packaged. Have only tried 2 sachets to date but found them good.

This stuff is fantastic, gels, blocks or anything like that turns my stomach on long runs. And after about 20 miles my stomach just won't keep down food. I use this stuff from the very start of my long runs or races. And sip the whole way through. No upset stomach or bonking. Definitely going to use this from now on. Pity I only found out about it not so long ago.

Heard lots about this product and it hasn't let me down so far. Still trying it out with longer runs but loving the variety and the service is amazing - product arrived next day, thank you!

Great bottle and fits nicely into my rucksack side pockets. I wish I'd bought the 24 oz bottle as the instructions for scoops/mixes is 24 oz. Just makes things easier.

I have two of the first edition of the neckwarmers which have been used a lot and still look good as new. I generally use them to keep my hair back and the sun off my head but will definitely try using as a neckwarmer in winter. I love the new design. Big thumbs up.

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

Free neck warmer with my order was much appreciated. You can't gave to many of these things - they are so versatile and I love the colours and design of this one
Friday, 11 August 2017 | Lucy
Love this, great taste and does the job!
Friday, 11 August 2017 | Anthony
Great quality neckwarmer, love the new design! I have just used it for a week's trail running in Switzerland.
Amazing customer service as always!

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!

My second order and once again fantastic service, great communication keeping me updated and speedy delivery. Won't use anything else now and recommended to numerous friends.

Since San Diego 100 ,where I first had the chance to try Tailwind,I know this is the perfect nutrition for all my races in the future!.
Thanks for the perfect customer support!!!

Having read about Tailwind Nutrition online I was sceptical about it's effectiveness, I find it difficult to fuel whilst taking part in Ironman Triathlons with the usual Stomach issues etc I have bonked numerous times over the last few seasons and decided it was worth a shot ........ Wow ...... Completed a 6 hour endurance ride on Nothing but Tailwind and still had the energy to complete a 6 mile Run after which I don't think I've ever felt especially at a 10k pace (45 mins) I didn't eat prior to the ride and this was my first to.e using the product -no stomach issues , the flavours were great and it was effortless .... no more excuses and hopefully come September a New PB at Ironman Wales ...... Kudos to Tailwind and the Personalised note in the box was a nice touch
The most colourful Neck Warmer in the draw
Thursday, 10 August 2017 | Phil
My last order value meant I received the new Tailwind neck warmer in my order. Well, i had to take it on my run that evening.
I use them all the time. In summer to mop the dew on my brow, (sounds nicer than sweat) and in winter it keeps my head warm. This is a benefit as I have little hair!
Some people may say, well it's just a neck warmer. Yes it is, but it the most colourful one I own and it triggered many a positive response at my running club. I wish my speed elicited the same level of response. Thanks Tailwind for the neck warmer and the continued service.

I purchased a multipack of Tailwind on the recommendation of fellow competitors in an upcoming ultras. I normally use gels in my longer training runs and races but find them a bit sickly after a while and sometimes experience peaks and dips in energy.
I tried the green tea caffeine buzz on an 18 miler last weekend and was pleased to find one sachet in 500ml water kept me going through it. The taste was pleasant although I had a sip of plain water after drinking Tailwind each time.
Great product and great service and I'll definitely be ordering more
Wednesday, 9 August 2017 | Craig
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 👍
Wednesday, 9 August 2017 | David
Thanks for the colourful neck warmer, very useful and excellent quality
First long run with Tailwind
Wednesday, 9 August 2017 | Deirdre
Used the Mandarin flavour but think I need to make it stronger (my own fault) as when I switched to my holder with stronger mix, I could feel it. Will be trying again this weekend at Dublin RnR marathon. Am hopeful I have found my fuel solution for NY Marathon
Wednesday, 9 August 2017 | Stuart
Fantastic service as usual by the Tailwind team
I placed an order for my normal powder and was a pound away from getting the neckwarmer free, too good an offer to miss out on, ordered myself a single powder and job done
Glad that I did, I wore the neckwarmer for the first time at the weekend but as a headband under my cycling helmet, perfect combination kept the sweat off my eyes, so much more than a neckwarmer put my far more expensive alternative to shame

What can I say yet again another great product from tailwind.
A very handy thing to have in your CamelBak/kitbag fits really well in all the different ways you can have and looks great along side my Tailwind hat.
Customer service is 2nd to none, the hand written note from Rob is a lovely touch on every order.
keep up the good work. #gotailwind

It's very nice (although my wife doesn't like the colours!).
Every bit the quality of other similar Spanish products and has the added bonus of advertising my favourite hydration product!
Tuesday, 8 August 2017 | Ken
Having tried other energy drinks Tailwind is the only one that I can keep drinking for 30 hours with zero stomach issues and constant energy! After 95 miles my legs felt as fresh as at the start. Great product!
Tuesday, 8 August 2017 | Deirdre
Love the lemon flavour, light and easy on the stomach, even after a few hours of cycling.
I found it very handy to have the multi serving pouch so I can adjust the quantity needed...!
Early days yet, but looking good

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.
Monday, 7 August 2017 | Patricia
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.
When they say you need nothing else-believe them

I received this product quickly, with a personalised note which was really nice and I hope as the company grows the guys can manage to keep this wee touch going! Stands you out! Standard size really for the individual servings so all good there. I put two sachets in 1.5l water,flavours were decent and not too sweet or sickly! My issue was that I tried this for the first time in an event instead of training and was so scared of running out of fuel because these sachets wouldn't be enough that I added some gels along the way and loads of food. I felt too full up to run. On the plus I never felt empty at any time but I overdid it. Next time I will trust the guys and only use this product as they recommend! Great value for money too. Will absolutely be ordering again. Thanks a lot for your excellent customer service and product-first class

Clean easy digestible fuel. Done my first long run yesterday with Tailwind (16 miles). I finally think, after years of experimenting, that I may finally have solved my long run achillies heel - nutrition👌
I'll definitely be using Tailwind in UTMB
Monday, 7 August 2017 | Oliver
I ran a 50k in California yesterday and gave Tailwind a proper try. I used nothing else and was well-impressed overall.The course was totally runnable which always puts a bit more stress on getting food in, and hot.
In 4.5 hours I used 5 of the 200 calorie sachets (2 neutral, 2 orange and a lemon). I chucked maybe half a 500ml flask at the last aid station but reckon I got at least 900 calories down my next during the race.
Monday, 7 August 2017 | Peter
Bought as an extra to go with my UD vest. Although ultimately made by the same company the Tailwind flask feels better quality. The cap screws on better than the UD flasks and they work really well.
Monday, 7 August 2017 | Gary
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!
Excellent product delivered super quick
Monday, 7 August 2017 | Marie
Very pleasant tasting (Mandarin Orange) which delivers on nutrition for my long runs. No stomach issues either which I've suffered from massively with other brands. Really appreciated the fast delivery and the personal note that accompanied it.
Monday, 7 August 2017 | Ross
My kids crewed me yesterday on Peak Skyline and i bought this bottle to make it easier for them to prepare my soft flasks, the wide opening made it so easy for them. They loved it, and what a great looking bottle. Tailwind powered me through another adventure. Awesome.

Did my third 10 mile run using a stickpack in my drink - I took 5 mins off my previous time, which were within 10 seconds of each other, and then added on another mile. No cramps and pleasant to drink. I will definitely be using more
Great service from Tailwind.. and product just works.. helps you go for longer and maintain your energy levels.
Thursday, 3 August 2017 | Tony
I've been using Tailwind now for a few years. I've tried others. But they just don't work as well. Its easy to consume, tastes great even after drinking it for 30hrs plus (Lakeland 100) And simply helps you maintain your energy levels when eating on the longer events can become hard.
The service is great from the guys - always delivered promptly. And remember - these guys are just like us.. they live.. breath.. and train.. running.. cycling.. & ultras..

After trailing tailwind on a training ride, I was blown away with the ability to keep pushing the pace, even in the last section. Something other nutrition drinks do not provide, especially keeping the stomach full.
Tuesday, 1 August 2017 | Paul
Tailwind was recommended to me by another runner. I wondered if it would be too late to trial for my 32 mile RAT run in a couple of weeks. Tried it on a 16 mile training run on Sunday and was really happy. Mixed easy, tasted great (quite subtle tastes) and it just kept me going. Great service and I just loved the personalised note. I will be recommending to others. Thanks guys!
Tailwind not windytail...

Im an unfit 40 year old that decided to get fit and set a goal of cycling 180miles over 2 days for charity. I read a lot about eating and what to eat and glucose boosters. Off i set about training. I couldn't work out why i was getting so much gut pain thought it was just belly fat complaining and sorry to say but cycling behind me wouldn't have been pleasant. The glucose drinks were terrible, thought I was having a heart attack on one ride turned out to be sever indigestion put down to glucose boosters! (Which taste rank as well. )
Speaking to a mate who does crazy running across the Sarah and he said forget flapjacks & glucose boosters and use tailwind. Sceptical I gave it a go.
Off I set on the training ride my first 100miles on nothing but tailwind, the difference was night and day, zero stomach pains, zero wind, zero indigestion and more than enough energy. Seriously i cant describe just how good I felt all the way through. The main cycle event was incredible and used tailwind all the way, there were people struggling on the cycle so I gave out a couple of sachets the turnaround in them was insane from totally 'had it' to a spring in their peddles. Magic elixir? Maybe just maybe!
Honestly as you can tell im no superhero, get this, trust it, love it. You wont be disappointed get rid of all that other rubbish.
Would I order again? Just have ready for my first sportive
Tuesday, 1 August 2017 | Lena
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.
TAILWIND RASPBERRY CAFFEINE BUZZ
Tuesday, 1 August 2017 | Lee
OMG this stuff is unbelievable!
I went into my race just aiming to survive, but finished 12th overall and 3rd in my category! I know this is down to sipping this stuff throughout a hard 57 mile bike leg.
Tuesday, 1 August 2017 | Gareth
Used tail wind 3 times now first on a trail 10 miler in hot conditions. Didnt take any other calories with me and it did just fine as expected as i was only out a hour and a half but thought id try it on a shorter run to make sure i was close to home in worse case situation it turned my stomach all worked out fine.
Second time was on a trail marathon in bad weather with plenty of climbing i was out for 5 hours and I took 3 600 ml bottles of tail wind and i was a bit sceptical about tail wind being the only fuel you needed all day. I went for 3 hours and nearly 2 bottles in I got a little rumble in my stomach so weather its just habit of taking in food calories I stopped and only took on a small 30g chiacharge bar and i finished the run off an tailwind alone. I was very suprised that that was the only food calories I took on board over the full 5 hours. The very next day I used tailwind on the Joss Naylor Challenge Leg 2 Supporting a local runner I did the out and back on the leg which was 13 miles I did this with two 600 ml bottles.
All in all its a great product and look forward to using it again.
I will most certainly be using it for the support of my support leg of bob graham round in two weeks times and my own ultra challenge in October.
Tuesday, 1 August 2017 | Clare
First time racing with tailwind this weekend. I felt great at the finish, no brain fog and generally pretty fresh. I'll definitely be using Tailwind for long races in the future.
Great product and service
Tuesday, 1 August 2017 | Joanne
Felt great on a 3hr training hike/run using the Mandarin Orange product. As a newbie to trail running I was happy to receive a recommendation of tailwind from my coach and am excited to be using it at my first race in mid August. Great product & efficient delivery service to France! Thanks tailwind!
