Sportive Nutrition
Thursday, 22 June 2017  |  Lee

At first I was sceptical about Tailwinds claims, but during two recent events it worked really well. I've recently participated in two sportives using Tailwind. With regards to fueling me through the rides, it's all I needed. I used the caffeinated ones, but did not get the 'jitters' with them and didn't feel the need to eat. No nasty stomach pains either. I've got the 'Dartmoor Classic' coming up in a week, which is 68 miles with 6500ft of climbing. I will only be using Tailwind for this. With Tailwind there's no need to carry excess weight etc. Nice touch with the personal emails and note included in the parcel. Would definitely recommend Tailwind Nutrition.

Ironman Staffordshire
Wednesday, 21 June 2017  |  Clare

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

great for under cycle helmet and for sweatband at the moment.

Just fill it and go
Wednesday, 21 June 2017  |  Robert

What can I say it has a nice wide opening so your less likely to spill you powder, tailwind logo and a nice orange spout. Be the envy of all your friends and rock out with your Tailwind bottle.

Excellent product with excellent service : )

Couldn't be happier. Product really is all you need, easily digested and thirst quenching to boot! Service excellent, personal and product receive in time & with good luck wishes for race.

Great product!
Wednesday, 21 June 2017  |  Peter

Tried the sample pack to see how effective the product is and it really works well. I don't get on with gels at all but Tailwind works fantastically well and no stomach issues at all. Will certainly be back for more.

Great service, very quick delivery. I used this on a 10 mile training run last weekend on a hot morning and felt great. I plan to use it again this weekend for a hilly trail marathon, thanks (and love the hand written post card and aftercare)

My favourite top
Tuesday, 20 June 2017  |  Jay

This has become my favourite top for running it is thin and light, just perfect for the summer months. I would suggest buying a size bigger as they are on the smallish side. I shall be ordering another to see me through the summer months.

Exceptional service and product
Tuesday, 20 June 2017  |  Lee

I've been using Tailwind this year preparing for some ultra trails this summer. I was looking for something which could provide the fueling needed without the dreaded gut bombs, and I am not a great fan of the gels. Tailwinds is fantastic, just need to keep drinking along the way and have a protein bar or something when the stomach feels empty.
The selection of flavours is really good, but I think my preference is berry.
My order with Tailwind UK was processed and delivered extremely quickly. I will certainly be buying my future.
I cannot rate this highly enough. Thanks for getting the order out to me so quickly.

berry tailwind
Tuesday, 20 June 2017  |  Derek

Great service. 1st time user. Heard about it at a recent ultra event. Just used in training so far but no ill effects, taste is great. Looking forward to using it in marathon conditions.

Great sample pack!
Tuesday, 20 June 2017  |  Teresa

Decided to give the sample pack a try as wasn't sure which flavour I'd like. Tried the raspberry on a 10 mile run last week and it certainly worked and couldn't eat afterwards as full up! Protein shake was all I could manage. Really great service and product. Defo recommend these guys and this drink. You won't need anything else and less to carry! Go for it, what you waiting for?!

Tuesday, 20 June 2017  |  Alistair

I ordered some stickpacks on the recommendation of friends. The benefits are clear straight away both during and after. Delivery was really quick too. I also thought the card was a nice personal touch.

Awesome Product
Tuesday, 20 June 2017  |  Samantha

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!

Monday, 19 June 2017  |  Alex

I take part in endurance events such as marathons, ultras, middle distance and Ironman Tris and long sportives. I have had trouble taking on carbs etc during any long run elements. 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. PB and didn't feel like dying. Worked for me,

Great service, great product!
Monday, 19 June 2017  |  Katherine

It's early days yet but so far I'm enjoying using Tailwind. Berry, lemon and orange tried so far and all are very nice. I'd definitely recommend to people who are struggling with drinks and/or gels. Service was quick with a lovely personalised note in the box. Try it!

Monday, 19 June 2017  |  Paul

Read about tailwind on the Centurion race reports the runners gave it good reviews, so I thought I would try some. Only done a few 10/15 mile runs using tailwind so still early days, but it certainly didn't cause me any problems. Time will tell if it benefits me. I will write another review after more serious testing, but feel positive. The order was delivered within 48 hours with a hand written note explaining how best to use tailwind. Nice touch.

A good start....
Monday, 19 June 2017  |  Mike

Tried Tailwind for the first time on a 20 mile trail run and was surprised to have no hunger pangs at all, no stomach issues either.... impressed so far!!

Sunday, 18 June 2017  |  Joanne

Recommended by a friend and not disappointed kept us going for 18 holes of golf, kept the fatigue on this hot day at bay.

Love the visor
Friday, 16 June 2017  |  Graeme

I love visors when training and racing and this is a great fit, easily adjustable and looks awesome!

Quality cap
Friday, 16 June 2017  |  Graeme

Great quality cap that is very comfortable and easily adjusted. Great fit too.

Rapid delivery
Friday, 16 June 2017  |  Gordon

Only tried 1 stickpack so far,but seems to be fairly decent. Definitely be purchasing the larger bags. Really fast delivery to.

First time using Tailwind and a new pr!
Friday, 16 June 2017  |  Pete

Most of my long training runs are on trails (usually 14-31 miles) and for as long as I can remember have been fuelled by clif bars and bagels. After hearing about tailwind on an ultra running podcast, I decided to give it a shot. It's cheaper than buying bars and shot blocks and more convenient to carry. To play it safe I started out with a 14 miler with nothing more than 2 tailwind sachets. I cannot begin to describe the difference in energy I felt. I ended up using a sachet and a half and setting a 6 minute personal best! I honestly felt like I was flying! Thank you tailwind, you will be coming with me on all of my future train runs and competitions.

Thursday, 15 June 2017  |  David

Im quite new to the Tri world and was struggling with nutrition etc . a pal of mine Andy Gardner told me about tailwind . I cant tell you how much difference it has made but its brilliant . I will be ordering more and recommending your product

Thx Tailwind
Tuesday, 13 June 2017  |  Bert

Just completed a 2day bike event (380km - 6000m+) with the use of tailwind. Great feeling - no stomach issues - no dehydration feeling. Thank you Tailwind!!! Bert - Belgium

Product review
Tuesday, 13 June 2017  |  Stef

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. Value for money no need for energy drinks and the rest of the paraphernalia. Really does help with fuelling and balances. Will not be using anything else in future.

Amazing customer service
Tuesday, 13 June 2017  |  Vic

I wanted to try trailwind after a friend advised it for my ultras. Not only was I presently surprised at the taste but also the fact I didn't experience any stomach issues in the test runs leading up to my ultra. fingers crossed for this weekend!!!
When the package arrived it came with a hand written note... It's all in the little details and this one made my day. thankyou guys I will be back again x

Tailwind 2 Serving Stickpacks
Monday, 12 June 2017  |  James

Great to have such a wide range of flavours, that all taste great, they are mellow and very gentle on the stomach to keep me going; very impressed with Tailwind

Constant energy
Monday, 12 June 2017  |  Jason

Tried Tailwind for the first time on an 18 mile run on muddy trails. I would normally take some energy bars, sweets, bananas etc. as I get really hungry on long runs. I had one full sachet in a 500ml soft flask, and another in my bag. I sipped little and often and felt energised for the full run. I'm amazed that I made it all the way around without eating anything! I'm converted!

So far so good
Monday, 12 June 2017  |  Conrad

Training for my first ultra and after reading a few reviews about tailwind I decided to give it a go, only used it twice but already liking the fact it's not a gloopy, sticky mess like some products, I really like that it's a nice mild taste too, and it seems to keep me going

Still Impressed
Friday, 9 June 2017  |  Paul

Favourite flavour so far... have used on back to back training runs of 4+ hours without getting sick of the taste.

What's a gel? Can't remember...

So far so good
Thursday, 8 June 2017  |  Thomas

First impressions are that this is perfect for me after a couple of 50 mile cycles, mainly because I really struggle with Gels. Ultimate test will come soon as I plan to complete a few 100 mile jaunts.

Great stuff!
Thursday, 8 June 2017  |  Susie

Recommended by a friend, wish I'd found it sooner. Still working out ratio of mixing for me as I have an ultra coming up in hot climes! Of all the flavours I've tried so far the only one I don't like is green tea.

Tailwind is awesome!
Thursday, 8 June 2017  |  Julie

I've used Tailwind for my last 4 half marathons and it is amazing! I don't get on with gels, but Tailwind is tasty, not sickly sweet and doesn't upset my stomach. I find just one sachet is enough to see me through a half marathon. I highly recommend Tailwind and wouldn't do a long run without it now

Great tasting nutrition
Wednesday, 7 June 2017  |  Thomas

Love the tailwind nutrition drinks. Perfect way to keep you energised during the longer races. Good on the stomach and great taste

First run
Wednesday, 7 June 2017  |  Graeme

First run went great, felt great during and after. Super quick delivery, loved the little note inside, nice touch. Will definitely buy again​.

Wednesday, 7 June 2017  |  Liam

Using on long rides and really noticing the difference, would recommend!

Tailwind stick packs
Wednesday, 7 June 2017  |  Michelle

Recently have just run a couple of marathons using a brand of gels and other hydration fluid - both of which sat heavily on my stomach and caused me to have a very desperate pit-stop resulting in loss of time.
Used tailwind on a 10 miler the other day - orange flavour which I was a bit dubious about as orange not my favourite of flavours - but I was pleasantly surprised the drink went down very easily had a lovely taste and seemed quite light on my stomach compared to other drinks - hopefully using this in my next marathon will help get the time I'm chasing

Delivery was quick and ordering was simple no hassle no fuss

No more gels for me
Tuesday, 6 June 2017  |  Jay

I am new to tailwind and so far I have found the product to live up to the reviews I have read. I have been using this during the hotter weather on runs of 8 to 9 miles which is my usual distance, I am finding that I could happily extend this distance and I am not feeling as fatigued as I would normally.

Tasty Green Tea
Tuesday, 6 June 2017  |  Emma

Brilliant product - has been getting me through my trail marathon training. For long runs, two 500ml bottle of this is perfect, along with a handful of dates. Doesn't leave me feeling sick the way gels do - really is a fairly complete fuel - highly recommended

Tailwind Stickpacks
Tuesday, 6 June 2017  |  Angela

Loving the different flavours. Haven't had cramp since Ive started using them.

Tailwind Mandarin stickpacks
Tuesday, 6 June 2017  |  Paul

After bonking on a long run using gels, some friends and twitter users advised me to get on the Tailwind bandwagon - I am so glad i did, my first test was a 26.2 mile run, I mixed the tailwind as per the instructions and sipped regularly throughout my laps. No bad guts, and no gloopy mess - Its light and easily manageable. I shall be using Tailwind during Race to the Stones a 100km non stop event. Excellent product, only bettered by the service and personalised note with my delivery. I will absolutely be recommending Tailwind to all of my friends

First time user
Tuesday, 6 June 2017  |  Teresa

I'm sure the product is worthy of that 5th star but having only used it once so far I need a bit more time!
Used it in a 4 hour mountain bike ride and really liked it, not sticky and mixed super fast. Tried the berry pack and the mandarin pack,both really nice. Felt good and strong throughout and lots of energy in the bank.

Top drawer product
Tuesday, 6 June 2017  |  Simon

It's exactly what you need for endurance days and easy on the stomach, a fantastic product.
I like the personal touch with the delivery.
I recommend this product to all my friends.

Tailwind multipack
Tuesday, 6 June 2017  |  Allyson

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. Looking forward to my next long run.

So much better than gels
Tuesday, 6 June 2017  |  Pete

Only used tailwind in one event and it was great! No gut problems no sticky mess no feeling sick after the event. Finished event and ate a meal! Usually would have to wait hours until stomach had settled if using gels 😎
Would recommend everyone to try tailwind!!!

First Try
Tuesday, 6 June 2017  |  Daniel

It was my first time trying tailwind after coming across it in the forum's. A good product for getting calories in and keeping you going. Easy to stomach on those long runs and leaving very little else needed. Recommended.

Easy fuelling
Tuesday, 6 June 2017  |  Lara

Great way of introducing yourself to the product & the flavours; none of which are over-powering, which is ideal if you're sipping on this for hours!

10 Stick Pack
Saturday, 3 June 2017  |  Chris

A great introduction to the product. A very easy way to find the flavours I preferred. All flavours were palatable and easy to digest.

First time buyer

Ordered tailwind first time. I'm going to try it over 100k and then in 24h race. Service excellent with quick delivery
