Wednesday, 13 December 2017 | Helen
Made the move to try this as I find gels are just too sweet and sickly for me (training for and completing triathlons)

This is product forms part of my recent purchase (also the multi stick pack), which arrived a couple of days after placing my order, and was well packed with no outward signs of damage. As for the product, I enjoy using it and no longer use gels, tablets or anything else. It's a clean drink, slight flavour, easy to use, feel more energised and causes me no upset stomach on my longer runs.

I first had Tailwind during the Centurion NDW50, and then promptly bought some to use during all my subsequent long races, including a 70 and 100 miler.

Does what it says on the tin. No need for sickly gels.

Tried tailwind at the Mouth to Mouth marathon last Sunday and definitely benefited from using this. Easy to use and not too sweet. Alternated with my normal Gels and will certainly be using from now on! Excellent service as well!

Only used once but can see this could be solution to my previous race feeding woes. Really fine powder that dissolves extremely well, the resultant mix is not too sticky or sweet giving an easy to consume drink with no separate water required.

Having struggled with hunger on long runs I was advised to try tailwind and from 1st instance the service has been excellent and canít wait to try it out on a long run
Tuesday, 28 November 2017 | John
Iíve been using Tailwind for around 2 years now and I wouldnít go a long run without it.
Tuesday, 28 November 2017 | Alison
I use tailwind when taking part in races and longer training runs. It really helps me keep going! Got a PB using it!
Monday, 27 November 2017 | Alex
Individual servings are a great for taking them for long endurance events. Simply fill your water flask with water and steer the magic powder which will take to the finish line!
Monday, 27 November 2017 | Alex
Got my race food sorted for the next upcoming ultra run at Dorset. Just tried this during my fast run and managed to set a PB for 1 hr. Coincidence!? I don't think so!
Sunday, 26 November 2017 | Steve
Tailwind was a recommend by long course triathlete mates. I've only used so far in training, but so far so good. Great taste, zero gut issues and best of all the simplicity of use. Would I recommend? I already have.
Saturday, 25 November 2017 | Gordon
So impressed with tailwind. A friend recommended it to me after completing an Ironman using tailwind for nutrition. I had struggled with gels in the past as they are very sickly and hard on my stomach, but tailwind is much easier to take and tastes much lighter. Highly recommend!
Thursday, 23 November 2017 | Sarah
I bought the 2 serving stickpacks on recommendation to help with my longer runs during my 1st marathon training. Very happy with the product. Tasty and easy to drink. My husband has been using them whilst out mountain biking and has noticed a difference in his performance so will definitely be buying more! Great customer service too.

After struggling to find a nutrition that worked I decided to give Tailwind a go following glowing reviews from friends. I ordered the 10 pack stick packs (changing the flavours to ones I thought I'd like!). Delivery was very quick (ordered Sunday night arrived Tuesday) with a lovely handwritten personalised note (nice touch!) I tried it out on a 4 hour run this weekend. I was a little wary about the volume I needed to drink (2l over the course of the morning) but actually found it very easy and didn't constantly need the loo as I had feared!) Normally post run I want to eat everything in sight, not so with Tailwind. I was able to go home and make a sensible food choice for the 1st time ever (I crave junk food and sugar normally...) Awesome product and definitely the best nutrition I've tried. I'll be using again!
Monday, 20 November 2017 | Brett
So Iíve tried the smaller packs and decided this time to go big. The key advantage is that I can now mix as I want. For example the weekend just gone meant a 15 mile jaunt. I wanted to try Tailwind ONLY as nutrition so I upped the mix a bit. The taste was still lovely, the effect on the stomach no problem and mist importantly the run went really well with no hunger pangs at all. Iíve tried lots of alternatives for nutrition and Tailwind beats them all. You canít go wrong!
Tuesday, 14 November 2017 | David
Great taste, gentle on the stomach and replaces all the gels, energy bars and salt sticks I used to carry round on long runs. Everything I need in one product. Excellent.
Monday, 13 November 2017 | Kim
I love these products, I struggle with gels but the Tailwind powder work so well for me during my long runs. They also taste great!
Sunday, 12 November 2017 | Jacqui
Received my stickpacks. Trying out the various flavours and they are very nice so far. My stomach is tolerating them well. Ran a half marathon yesterday with only tailwind for fuel and at last night calf pain at 8 miles. Hopefully this is doing the trick. Great Product.
Sunday, 12 November 2017 | Richard
My first run using Tailwind was yesterday, I set off with 12 to 13 miles in mind but ended up running 21 by the time I got home, it was one of those runs where i just kept going.
Thursday, 9 November 2017 | Phil
I have been using tailwind for all my long bike rides and I can say I have not been wanting any bars or gels .
Wednesday, 8 November 2017 | Jenefer
So glad a running buddy recommended Tailwind to me! Gels are too sticky and make me thirsty whereas sipping at Tailwind regularly throughout my longer runs does the fuelling job very well, thank you.
Wednesday, 8 November 2017 | Stu
My 1st test run using Tailwind was a 22km run commute the other night. I do this same run a few times a week and always go through a bottle of energy drink, up to 4 gels (depending on pace and effort) and sometimes a caffeine energy shot.
Tuesday, 7 November 2017 | Eamon
Was worries it might be too tight a for going by the pictures, but happy to say I can put my worries away, also doubles up as a beanie of sorts with a twist and pull in the middle. Go tailwind , some more colour options and I'll go 5 star.
Tuesday, 7 November 2017 | Caitlin
So happy to have finally tried Tailwind - I've been suffering from stomach issues during marathons and kept trying different gels with no success. Tailwind tastes great, gives me the energy I need and NO GI DISTRESS!
Monday, 6 November 2017 | Teresa
Great taste. Easy to take and mix. Fantastic, speedy service. Love the personal touch. The information sheet is brilliant. So useful.
Monday, 6 November 2017 | Paul
After trialling the stick packs I decided to purchase the multi serving in the naked unflavoured.
Saturday, 4 November 2017 | Joe
I was waiting to write this review after trsting the bottle on my first trail marathon - the 27 mile Gordano Round Marathon, here in the Portishead area. While the run itself wasnít a great success (very painful & slow) the bottle performed brilliantly. Comfortable in my race vest, no leaks, nice wide opening for Tailwind, nice hand-feel, just a great product! Thanks once again Tailwind for such craftsmanship in your execution.
Thursday, 2 November 2017 | Eleanor
I tried this product foe the first time on an 8 mile run. I took sips little and often. Used half a sachet in my bottle, may have been a tad muh as tasted quite strong, but I have to say I felt good the whole run and could have gone further. I didn't get the usual wave of tiredness I tend to experience after that distance. I'm looking forward to testing again on more long runs.
Thursday, 2 November 2017 | Rupert
I was told about Tailwind via a friend who does endurance races so i thought id try them. I bought a multi pack and they've worked really well. I did try to pre load on a long run 18 Km, but the dose i used, a whole pack (Strip) in one water bottle had an adverse effect on me during the run. However, once i settled for half a pack (strip) to a bottle, that worked really well and felt it gave me planty of energy. I did Storm the Fort in October using purely Tailwind topped up with the occasional haribo and cup of water at feeding stations and felt really strong. So i would definitely recommend, I've now gone for the Multiserving pack so that i can reduce wastage on packs. Great stuff.
Thursday, 2 November 2017 | Marc
Itís buff time of year again - thanks tailwind perfect for autumnal rides.
Wednesday, 1 November 2017 | Tony
First time user and be it on the bike or on foot it ticks all the boxes, Mandrin orange very subtle and leaves no after taste, All good.
Tuesday, 31 October 2017 | George
Awesome designed buff and it fits really well. Tnx Tailwind!
Tuesday, 31 October 2017 | Ruth
Love tailwind! Superb for longer runs, without any issues. Superb service, superb product! Thank you Julien
Monday, 30 October 2017 | Claire
I used tailwind during a marathon I recently ran. I think itís an amazing product. Iíd no stomach issues and it kept me fully fueled for the whole race. The taste is nice and refreshing and Iíll be using it in all by long runs from now on. Thank you
Monday, 30 October 2017 | Paul
I used this product for the first time at the weekend at the Beachy Head Marathon and was very impressed. Normally I would have tried the product when training but I didnít have a chance, nevertheless I had absolutely no ďdigestive issuesĒ. In fact the taste was remarkably pleasant and it went down very well. Looking forward to trying it again on future training runs and events. Definitely recommended.
Monday, 30 October 2017 | Gregor
Colleague suggested Tailwind. So far I am very satisfied with the service and the product really does seem to work on my long runs.
Sunday, 29 October 2017 | Tom
Great t-shirt. Looks good, feels good and doesn't ride up when running with a pack on!
Sunday, 29 October 2017 | Tom
Great product! really easy to use, store and consume.. goes down well. Perfect for both short and super long runs.. No doubt will be back for more!
Thursday, 26 October 2017 | Mary
Up to the end of finishing this yearís spring marathons (London and Paris) I had always used Hi5 gels and energy drinks and they were fine but with an autumn marathon planned for a PB, I wanted to try something new. I had been recommended Tailwind by other runner friends.
Wednesday, 25 October 2017 | Chris
As I first outing I wore the neckwarmer on the Salcombe coastal marathon where storm brian should up. How many uses for it that day. First stopped the driving rain going down my neck. Later as a buff and then finally as face mask to stop blowing sand defoliating my face😂! Thank guys Love it.
Wednesday, 25 October 2017 | Christine
A friend introduced me to Tailwind and I just had to purchase my own. Really good for long endurance runs, keeps you going and tastes better than anything else I've tried. Service is impeccable and liked the personal touch
Tuesday, 24 October 2017 | Clare
I used this on a long run yesterday. Brilliant. Tastes great. I gave a sachet to a friend for her long run and she too will be placing a order!
Tuesday, 24 October 2017 | Emma
I haven't tried tailwind yet, but I would like to comment on the wonderful personal customer service, handwritten personalised note with delivery, you just don't get that kind of thing anymore. They were sent promptly and arrived in good condition. I'm sure they will be as good as the other reviewers describe.
Monday, 23 October 2017 | Coral
I love the colours and design. Good fit - not too stretchy so I could pull it up over my ears without it falling down, or wrap it around my wrist a couple of times to mop my brow when I was getting warm on my run. It's also long enough to fold into two or three layers when the weather starts to turn really cold. Thank you, Tailwind
Monday, 23 October 2017 | Doug
I've been out a couple of times. One two hour run and I took a mouthful every mile. Definitely felt stronger at the end of the run than normal and feel that the little and often approach is the way to go. I look forward to more longer runs to assess further.
Monday, 23 October 2017 | Alexis
Good branded Tailwind buff. Waiting for the right conditions to use it. Thanks.
Monday, 23 October 2017 | Alexis
I stumbled upon Tailwind after years of frustration with various gels. I used it in training diluted and concentrated for Chicago marathon. Results have been great and now I use this as sole nutrition when I need something. Thanks,
Monday, 23 October 2017 | Katie
Super quick delivery. Amazing personalised customer service (which makes a huge differnce) the product tastes good. Dissolves instantly. No tummy problems. Kept me feeling stroganoff and able throughouty long run also gaining some new PBs!
Friday, 20 October 2017 | Garrett
I was not expecting the awesome flavor of this product! It's not like most where isn't not quite as thirst quenching as water it is amazing and come with a clean tummy! Great product will continue to use as I start ironman training
Friday, 20 October 2017 | Guy
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 !
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.
Thursday, 19 October 2017 | Sue
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
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.
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!
Tuesday, 17 October 2017 | Amy
Used before a 10k and got me through nicely. No after taste, no heaviness in your stomach. Look forward to using on longer runs and sipping as I go for best edge.
Tuesday, 17 October 2017 | Craig
Tuesday, 17 October 2017 | Sam
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.
Tuesday, 17 October 2017 | Gemma
An excellent buff. Not too thick, great fabric and design good for multiple uses and will be fab in the cold weather. For now useful as sweat band
Tuesday, 17 October 2017 | Phyllis
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.
Monday, 16 October 2017 | Mark
To be honest I cannot really review this item as my wife saw it and claimed it as hers,but she says it's a really good product,and says I should get one.thanks tailwind ,another great product.and I still think your drink is the best I have ever had.keep up the great work.
Saturday, 14 October 2017 | Patrick
I found the neckwarmer to be of high quality and holds its shape after use and washing. Good product. Would recommend to others
Friday, 13 October 2017 | Bryn
Great flavor so far no cramps will use on my upcoming Birmingham International Marathon.
Friday, 13 October 2017 | Bryn
Good solid trucker cap, would of been better if it was BOCO designed!
Thursday, 12 October 2017 | Gary
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!
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, 11 October 2017 | Richard
Using tailwind now for 6 weeks for swimming, cycling and running , found an improvement in endurance levels through out , cut out gels from training completely. I will continue to use tailwind for all training sessions .
Tuesday, 10 October 2017 | Debbie
A lot of running friends were raving about Tailwind for their long runs and as I did not get on with gels from other companies wanted to try the Tailwind stick packs. First trial run today and all good, no nausea. Will definitely be using again. Prompt and personalised service thank you.
Monday, 9 October 2017 | Stuart
I have just completed the gower 50 miler. I was on tailwind the whole race which took me 12 hours to complete. This product is amazing. It tastes amazing. No stomach problems at all and I felt hydrated during the whole race. I would recommend tailwind to anybody who is in to there running. You will not try anything else after you try this 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.
Sunday, 8 October 2017 | Sarah
Sunday, 8 October 2017 | Rhys
Just used for IM Barcelona.
Friday, 6 October 2017 | Andrea
Friday, 6 October 2017 | Roddy
I've always (30 years) had a problem tolerating fluids. I've used Tailwind for about 8 months now and not had a problem yet. I can't recommend it highly enough!!
Thursday, 5 October 2017 | Paula
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!
Wednesday, 4 October 2017 | David
Not only is the product good and tasty , it is really a cost effective way of buying tailwind . I will continue to mix my orders up with the small sticks and the multi packs ...Thanks again Mike and thanks for the nice personal note re my iron man completion . Made my day that note
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, 3 October 2017 | Steven
You said it wouldn't give me the gut bomb and I'm happy to say it didn't. Flavour is good not too sickly over time. The handwritten note with the delivery was a nice touch. You have a new long term customer!
Tuesday, 3 October 2017 | Michael
I bought Tailwind's product after a recommendedation from a friend. The service was very prompt .
Monday, 2 October 2017 | Kevin
Early days but so far it ticks all the boxes. Great taste, no dodgy stomach cramps and felt strong all the way round my last 2 x 16 mile training runs. Bring on the Marathonin 2 weeks time 🏃🏃🏃🏃
Monday, 2 October 2017 | Jenny
First time ordering and using this product. Found the service fantastic. Product arrived on the day promised. Used it a couple of times for long runs. Found it fantastic. No need for gels or extra water and no tummy issues at all. Lovely personal message wishing me luck on my Half Marathon and an email coming up to the Half wishing me luck again. Brilliant experience. Totally recommend it and will be using it again.
Monday, 2 October 2017 | Teresa
This product is just simply the best out there. Chuck away the gels, and any other stuff you normally take, coz you simply don't need them.
Monday, 2 October 2017 | Keith
This is my first order with Tailwind and was very impressed with the service. Super fast delivery and a personal message inside wishing me luck on my 50 mile ultra.
Sunday, 1 October 2017 | James
I tried various flavours with the trial pack and now have my favourites......used it to support me on the Essex 100 (50 Mile option) and it worked well.
Saturday, 30 September 2017 | Joseph
I used the green tea caffeinated flavour recently on a 75 mile bike ride and it was great, the flavour may be my new favourite. No stomach issues like i find with gels, and felt good throughout. Will certainly be buying this one again
Saturday, 30 September 2017 | Melvyn
Tried the tester sticks on short runs to see how it felt on the stomach and then ordered a larger bag of the berry flavour
Thursday, 28 September 2017 | Pablo
Used for the whole UKTM season. Not gut issues and great for keeping on the move. It was cheaper to buy direct here and pay for next day delivery than to buy on A*@z0n. Got a personalised post card wishing me luck at World's Toughest Mudder in Nov. Great product, GREAT service!!!
Thursday, 28 September 2017 | Hazel
Bought on a whim. Cannot fault the service, received in 2 days. The hand written note, was full of love and support. I am sure that between us. I will get my PB (lol) in my 1st ever Half Marathon in Glasgow. Thank you. xx
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!
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.
Monday, 25 September 2017 | Mark
I love this stuff ! It's seen me through everything from road marathons right up to my first 100 miler this year,flavoir is spot on and its got everything in it to see me through,each time,every time !!
Monday, 25 September 2017 | Geoff
Used Tailwind for this awesome 24hr event, used 2 scoops in 500ml water every 10k and managed to run 100km with no gut problems or cramping, I had never ran more than a Marathon before and felt great. Fantastic product can't recommend it highly enough!
Monday, 25 September 2017 | Bec
I was recommended this product after being unable to eat whilst out running and gels were a no-no too. I have not looked back! Have just got a PB on a half using only TailWind. Fantastic product! Cannot stop recommending it to everyone. I love the little personal note you get with the order too - great touch!
Sunday, 24 September 2017 | Laurence
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!!!
Saturday, 23 September 2017 | Steve
Still to be tested over longer distances (20m+) but nice n light and didn't need gels as an added supplement. Big hearty thumbs up!
Friday, 22 September 2017 | Matt
Did a 30km run on Tuesday and this was all I took! I didn't experience any hunger or dehydration at all. No 'bonk', or best of all, no GI distress, really kind on the stomach. Going to stick with this. The personal touch is great as well!
Thursday, 21 September 2017 | Stewart
I bought this on a friends recommendation for long distance running and have found it excellent. It maintains energy and hydration at the end of the runs where I had previously been struggling allowing me to run stronger for longer.
Wednesday, 20 September 2017 | Sander
Did a 3h run here with Tailwind and no gels at all. Worked great! Itís a bit getting used to, to drink more and more often. It seems that your hydration flasks wonít get sticky or dirty on the inside. I hope Tailwind will get directly available in Holland (is now via the UK).
Wednesday, 20 September 2017 | Alexis
Tidied out 2 new soft flasks with Tailwinds on a 20 mile run. The flasks work well and collapse down as the liquid goes down. Worth a try an an alternative to a plastic bottle .
Tuesday, 19 September 2017 | Gerry
An ultra runner put me on to tailwind when I was preparing for a 200km adventure race.
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 | Andrew
Cannot believe i have not found this product before. Tasty and no gut reaction at all. Easy to carry on long distance for refilling at water stations as well. Exceptional product and i won't be using anything else any time soon.
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!
Monday, 18 September 2017 | Julia
Used it for the first time this weekend and it did make a difference. No awful crash afterwards as usually happens.
Monday, 18 September 2017 | Christiaan
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.
Monday, 18 September 2017 | Rhys
I used tailwind for the first time on the weekend to do a brick session. Wow. What a difference. I felt hydrated and fresh throughout. And Wow the berry flavour tastes fantastic. Just got to start tailoring and figuring out how I can use it for ironman Wales next year. Amazing.
Monday, 18 September 2017 | Alexis
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.
Saturday, 16 September 2017 | Damien
Excellent product and first rate customer service. I have used a couple of the stick packs and am very pleased so far. As it is the same stuff but in a bigger bag I am looking forward to using more of the same.
Saturday, 16 September 2017 | Damien
Excellent product and first rate customer service. I have used a couple of the stick packs on a cycle ride of 40 miles and a half marathon run. It does exactly what it says and kept me fuelled and hydrated. I cannot wait to use it at the Equinox run this forthcoming weekend.
Friday, 15 September 2017 | Garry
Great way yo carry supplies when on a longer run , product keeps energy levels flying as always . No stomach problems and kept the hunger away

I used Tailwind in the Ultra Trail Monte Rosa - a brutal technical 120km trail race in the Italian & Swiss Alps. Used the product and first time in ages I didn't have any stomach issue or cramps. I even came 2nd in my class, great stuff

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.

1st time using tailwind, I certainly had more energy to see me through. I used the sticks, they didn't open cleanly so bit of a faff refilling my bottle other than that it was great.
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 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.

Both my wife and I have been looking for a nutritional product that works for the both of us. Tailwind has surpassed our expectations and is a win for us. Performance has been great whilst using it. Neither of us have suffered any of the usual bloating or tummy issues when we've used it. Top job, thanks very much, we'll be back soon!

Bought as a replacement for my old Salomon flasks. Great wide opening makes them easy to handle / fill during recent marathon and they don't disappear into the pocket on my Salomon vest like the old ones. As described by other reviewers the only disadvantage is a slight rubbing when the bottle is full so took to filling 80% and had no problems after that. Also received extra free sticks to try out the different flavours. Very appreciated..... as was the neck warmer.
Monday, 11 September 2017 | Nick
Great product. I drank it for 14 hours straight with NO tummy problems. Tastes great, works like a dream. Can't recommend it highly enough. It makes a huge positive difference to your performance. And the service and support from the Tailwind UK team is exceptional. 10/10
Monday, 11 September 2017 | Karl
Excellent product fab taste and keeps you going. Used it on 45 mile cycle and never needed any gels. Best I have felt and will be using it for half and full marathons and training
Sunday, 10 September 2017 | Ruth
Switched to "Tailwind" from water & gel's after recommendation's from friend's. Brilliant, no more sickly gel's & dreadful stomach cramp's! I was considering giving up marathon's because the stomach cramp's were getting so bad. 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.

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.
Friday, 8 September 2017 | Joe
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.
Friday, 8 September 2017 | Euan
I used this exclusively to fuel and hydrate me around a 74mile cycle race. It's my first time trying the product and I found it easy to use and carry, tasted great (particularly Berry) and I never wanted for energy or power to my legs at any point in the race. Can't wait to feel the difference it makes to my endurance running training!
Friday, 8 September 2017 | Jim
Only used it once on a long run so far, no stomach issues or cramping which I get with most other powders, will try it on a long ride at the weekend weather permitting
Thursday, 7 September 2017 | Steve
Only just discovered tailwind and have used it before my last two long runs 21-50 and 24 -20 m for the Yorkshire marathon. I used tailwind pre run during run and post run I have always found it tough around 16/18 m on long runs but on my last two runs there has been a marked improvement in my energy levels at these points so far so good 😁👊👍
Thursday, 7 September 2017 | Alex
Purchased to have in my pack for use on a training marathon at the weekend. Perfect size to not take up too much room and easy to use when required. Customer service of this company is second to none and I love the personal notes from the team. Couldn't reccomend them enough!
Tuesday, 5 September 2017 | Stephen
Bought this to take on my holidays to Costa Brava where I am at the minute. Great lightweight cap that fits to the shape of my head with its adjsustable strap. Lightweight yet soaks up my sweaty brow and stops swat trickles into my eyes.
Tuesday, 5 September 2017 | Mark
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 | 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.
Tuesday, 5 September 2017 | Bethan
The stickpacks are perfect for carrying for refills on a long run. Perfect nutrition which comes in handy small packs so you never need to run out!
Tuesday, 5 September 2017 | Bethan
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!!
Tuesday, 5 September 2017 | Emma
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
Tuesday, 5 September 2017 | Rob
Very impressed with the product, which I've used a few times. Just finished a 48 mile ultra and I did have to supplement with some solid foods to keep the tummy happy but it's far kinder on the guts than most supplements I've tried.
Tuesday, 5 September 2017 | Olivia
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. It is super gentle on the stomach and just gives you the essentials, no unnecessary colourings or additives. So happy I can order here! Thanks!
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
Sunday, 3 September 2017 | Karen
I tested this product on an 87 mile Sportive. It was excellent, I didn't need any other products to supplement it. Will buy again.
Friday, 1 September 2017 | Sharon
After suffering for years with sticky syrupy gels and stomach cramps I am now converted to tailwind.
Friday, 1 September 2017 | Andi
Another great product delivered promptly and courteously from Mike and his team - thank you! They feed me, they clothe me - what next?
Friday, 1 September 2017 | Alan
Simply the best fuel I have used. Delcious tasting and much less imposing than alternatives. Superbly combines carbs and electrolytes in quantities that no other product can.
Friday, 1 September 2017 | Colin
The event only supplied water and the only nutrition I used from start to finish was tailwind, 14 sticks, 7 caffeinated, 7 not. Absolutely no issues, felt fine all the way through and wasn't starving at the end.
Thursday, 31 August 2017 | James
Seriously reduced the amount of food I need to carry on long rides. Tastes declixious and owners always deliver a personal touch.. order something and you'll see what I mean
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.
Wednesday, 30 August 2017 | Ross
So here I am, in Chamonix without my suit case as Easyjet have lost it on the flight out. I'm in the process of buying all the stuff I need again for UTMB on Friday, when I get a courtesy email from Tailwind wishing me luck and telling me if I need any more supplies there is a tailwind rep in the area. A few texts later and my tailwind is resupplied along with a complimentary neckwarmer. Perfect customer service once again. I can't rate these guys and girls high enough. Thanks Tailwind!
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.
Wednesday, 30 August 2017 | Maxime
It does what is says !
Tuesday, 29 August 2017 | Lorraine
"Tailwind" kept cropping up on alot of running forums/facebook pages I saw, all praising how good the product was. I didnt get on with certain gels in my training so I eventually thought Id try tailwind. Ive only used it on 2 of my longer runs so far but both ive had no issues with like I did gels.
Tuesday, 29 August 2017 | S
Easy to carry and easy to mix. Helped me through a hot marathon. Great product.
Monday, 28 August 2017 | Verity
The sachets blended instantly in water and I used two sachets in 1.5 litre water each day for my 100k event (plus water and snacks at rest stops); Tailwind played a huge part in keeping me hydrated and my energy levels stable.
Monday, 28 August 2017 | Len
Great product, good quality material, soft next to skin, great design, lovely colours as good as the Buff range!! Will wear it with pride! Thank you Heather
Monday, 28 August 2017 | Julie
Great service -ordered in evening arrived next day.

Just come back from a longish run after starting out on tired legs I set off with a 330ml bottle with half a sachet of lemon. On returning home I had fresher legs than I should (or deserved) having covered just under 13 miles at an average of just over 5:30 per km. The taste may not be for everyone (tried one I was unsure about) but it did grow on me. Not too sweet and did not leave that stickiness on your lips. Sipped ever mile, will try ever km next run. I'm not sure I wanted to go any further but I'm just over 50 mile this week! I do think i could have done another mile but i had run out of tailwind by then. Looking forward to trying the other 5 and if they work like this I can understand why people use them on ultras. Still really unsure about the green tea. Will try next Sundays half at Cleethorpes on tailwind and see how it goes, may give the green tea a go.
Friday, 25 August 2017 | Andrea
I'm training for my first marathon and knew I'd have to get on top of fuelling during runs. I've been so nervous to try gels because I'm convinced my stomach will take against them so I decided to give tailwind a try. I've now used it twice, once on a 12 mile run and once on a 15 mile run, which were 3 days apart. It's amazing! My energy was constant and at no point did I get that exhausted leg feeling....and no stomach issues whatsoever. I now just need to work out how to carry enough for the race. I'm a total fan! Thank you so much 😀
Friday, 25 August 2017 | Davy
Great gear - used it at Ironman 70.3 Dublin - two bottles worth on the bike and a banana - powered me right through. Had a couple of Cliff jelly blocs on the run, but the Tailwind as my main source of energy was perfect.
Thursday, 24 August 2017 | Brian
Excellent quality material. Very comfortable worn as headwear. Eye catching new design. As with all things Tailwind, top customer service and to get it for free with a minimum order is fab. You would expect to pay £15 retail. Thanks and keep up the great work.
Thursday, 24 August 2017 | Carole
I have just started to use Tailwind and I have found it to be a real help to me. I am training for a marathon and could not find the right product for me and plain water was not enough, But I have Tailwind now, Thank You.
Thursday, 24 August 2017 | Stuart
My last purchase of tailwind came with a couple of free stick packs as well as this buff, and what a lifesaver it's been! My sweat rate is quite high and I constantly have trouble with sweat in my eyes when I'm on the bike. It's been great on long rides and I've been able to double it up to limit the amount of sweat on my face. Also, It's quite a bright design and doesn't get mislaid easily, something I'm prone to doing! Hopefully, this is the end of stinging eyes!
Thursday, 24 August 2017 | Jason

I had this as a free gift with a pur base of Tailwind. Excellent lightweight material and very absorbent as a sweatband. I would recomend.
Thursday, 24 August 2017 | Marc
Very stylish and versatile. Colourful and displays Tailwinds trade mark nicely in the middle. The only marketing draw back I see is that you cant see the tailwind logo if you wear it like a pirates bandana or scrunched up on your wrist. Material is coated nicely so it doesnt go all soft and cotteny on the first wash.... or fade like some others do.
Thursday, 24 August 2017 | Peter
I have been using Tailwind before, during and after my runs or bike rides.
Wednesday, 23 August 2017 | Anthony
I'll never use another product for endurance events ever again. Kept me hydrated and energised throughout a half ironman and easy on the tummy too. Highly recommend.
Wednesday, 23 August 2017 | Ben
Have been on a couple of long runs with it and so far it works! Kept my energy levels constant and definitely easy of my stomach compared to gels.
Wednesday, 23 August 2017 | Ian
First of all let me admit to being a little sceptical about using Tailwind purely because I thought I'd 'heard it all before ' about how good stuff is! Well, I was wrong! I tied this on a 14 mile LSR in very humid conditions and it proved to be an absolute godsend. I had a bottle pre-mixed and took a sachet and another bottle of water with me. It's easy to open and easy to mix. I used the Berry flavour which was very pleasant with no after taste. It kept me well hydrated as well as keeping the energy level topped up- what's not to like? All in all I'd really recommend it and I look forward to using Tailwind again! Service is excellent and my order arrived in a couple of days. Great company, great product.
Tuesday, 22 August 2017 | Clare
Got this new design after I have been using tailwind. I love these and Tailwind's neckwarmer ticks all the boxes. Light, stretchy, functional, versatile. Washes well, quick drying and looks great! Love this design, mine will be getting a lot of use.
Tuesday, 22 August 2017 | Cathrine
Have been ordering and using the large bag of tailwind over past few months during my long cycle training rides and love it. It has kept me going in times of need and is very gentle on my tummy.
Tuesday, 22 August 2017 | Julie
I received my tailwind order promptly and with a personalised note which was a nice touch. Very easy to use and tastes nice even the plain one. I've tried them out on a 10k and half marathon and found my energy levels stayed stable. Very happy with this product and will be reordering.
Tuesday, 22 August 2017 | Andrew
Started using tailwind nutrition instead of gels and find it much easier to take and more effective.
Monday, 21 August 2017 | Ronan
My mixed stick pack arrived promptly and with a personalised note. I tried it for he first time on my long training run yesterday and went really well, didn't feel overly hungry/thirsty. Very happy not to carry gels and worry about managing the highs/lows. Will definitely be sticking with Tailwind.
Monday, 21 August 2017 | Graeme
Tried it out over a few runs. Tailwind keeps my energy levels up without any uncomfortable sloshing or other gut issues! Flavours not so sweet that they become cloying after a few hours. Stick packs are perfect for carrying in a backpack for topping up along the way. Recommended
Monday, 21 August 2017 | Garry
Whilst I have only used a few times so far, the quality is first class and I am very pleased.
Monday, 21 August 2017 | Michelle
The product has a pleasant taste and doesn't leave you with a horrible sickly after taste like many others do. Only tried it on a short run so far but it was very hot and I didn't cramp at all or feel dizzy.
Sunday, 20 August 2017 | Horace
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.
Saturday, 19 August 2017 | Richard
I bought a mixed multi-stick pack and tried out the Raspberry Buzz on my long run today and it was great.
Friday, 18 August 2017 | Andrew
Worth spending £30 on a great product, for a free 'buff'!
Friday, 18 August 2017 | Melvyn
I wanted to try tailwind as I find it hard to eat anything after a few hours on a long run and my stomach gets sick of gels. The tailwind has been great on two outings. I tried it on a short run to check how it sat in the stomach and was chuffed with the results. Compared to a number of other company products this wasn't obviously salty and wasn't sickly sweet...the berry flavour was spot on. Today I went out fasted and did a three hour trail run on the caffeinated green tea and the unflavoured stick pack. They are both easy on the stomach and got me through a decent 18 mile run with a few tasty hills. I'll work my way through the rest of the selection then I'll be buying a large pack of one flavour. I'm training for the white rose ultra and I'm hoping to use just tailwind to get me round...see how I get on with a longer run. Contact with Mike at tailwind was great...really friendly and helpful with advice on how to find the perfect mix for individuals.
Friday, 18 August 2017 | Gordon
Just finished the Mourne 7 7s - 5 hours, 18 miles and 8100ft. Was trying Tailwind for the first time properly (500mm of Raspberry Buzz & 500mm of Lemon). Realized I lost my usual bars and chocolate a third of the way in, plus my mid way water top up did not work out so was rationing the Tailwind all the way. I did picked up a Gel and a couple of jellies which helped. Was really worried i was going to suffer towards the end but no, ended up with my first ever category win in a really tough race. Really impressed with Tailwind.
Friday, 18 August 2017 | Pete
First time using Tailwind, and it tastes great, mixes quickly and washes out of bottles easily.
Thursday, 17 August 2017 | Kylie
Quick turnaround from order to delivery followed up with a personal message to check how I was getting on with Tailwind. I've only used it a couple of times so far - and will be using it again for back to back long training sessions this weekend - but so far so good! No GI issues, great subtle flavours and it seems to keep me fuelled for the hours needed. As someone who cannot tolerate certain sugars, wheat or dairy products, getting suitable sports nutrition can be a real problem. I think I've found the solution! Excited to try it at IM Wales in a months time
Thursday, 17 August 2017 | Kelly
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!
Thursday, 17 August 2017 | Paul
First tim user of tailwind, so little apprehensive. Arrived quickly with a nice personal note enclosed.
Wednesday, 16 August 2017 | Alasdair
I received this buff with my last order and it did not disappoint.
Wednesday, 16 August 2017 | Derek
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 .
Tuesday, 15 August 2017 | Paul
Tailwind ,what a fantastic product !!
Tuesday, 15 August 2017 | Daniel
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
Tuesday, 15 August 2017 | Eleanor
Item arrived very quickly and was very well packaged. Have only tried 2 sachets to date but found them good.
Tuesday, 15 August 2017 | Garry
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.
Monday, 14 August 2017 | Alexandra
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!
Monday, 14 August 2017 | Ian
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.
Monday, 14 August 2017 | Sarah
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.
Saturday, 12 August 2017 | Lucie
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
Saturday, 12 August 2017 | Alison
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.
Friday, 11 August 2017 | Andi
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!
Friday, 11 August 2017 | Rhodri
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.
Friday, 11 August 2017 | Johannes
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!.
Thursday, 10 August 2017 | Dan
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
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.
Thursday, 10 August 2017 | Melanie
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.
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
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
Wednesday, 9 August 2017 | Lee
What can I say yet again another great product from tailwind.
Wednesday, 9 August 2017 | Tim
It's very nice (although my wife doesn't like the colours!).
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.
Tuesday, 8 August 2017 | Keith
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
Monday, 7 August 2017 | Gary
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 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.

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.

Bought the Tailwind Nutrition for the first time as I heard great reviews about the product.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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. )

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.

OMG this stuff is unbelievable!

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.

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.

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!

This was my 2nd purchase of Tailwind having been impressed by it's performance whilst on long bike rides in prep. for Ironman Wales. I finally undertook a long run with it yesterday (usually I'm loathe to carry any extra weight). All I can say is WOW! I took a 500ml bottle for a 2 hour run, with a fair few hills. Taking a few sips every 20 minutes made a lot of difference to my run, and I experienced none of the stomach problems which have plagued me when using other brands on course at IMW. As well as the product itself, the customer service is great - I'll soon be back for more!!!!

Update to my review on 19/7. Completed Fort William Marathon yesterday using Tailwind as my only race fuel and hydration in my fastest time yet. So easy to use and a mouthful every mile was perfect. No cramps, rumbling guts or any issue. My only disappointment is not having found this product sooner! One very happy runner 😊

I was recommended Tailwind by a friend and I am so glad I was. I was finally able to push through my long runs for half marathon training; I wouldn't be without it on a long run now.

After finding that the Salomon soft flasks flop about in the pockets of my UD vest, I decided to check these out. They're a much better fit even when full, and collapse down incredibly well. The wide neck is an added bonus.

I love ordering from Tailwind, not only are the products brilliant but the customer service is personal, swift and exemplary.

instantly loved this product, and communication, delivery and friendly personal touches,

This company is wonderful. I love their products and it is made even better by their personalised customer service every time. Highly recommended!

Best help I've ever had in the middle of the night, tested this on TR24 and my legs just kept going, instantly. Maybe too tired to remember the taste, so it can't have been that strong! Looking forward to trialling it through my weekly long runs. Amazing personalised service, refreshing, with a company attitude like that the sky is the limit. Thank you!

Can't recommend this product enough, tried for the first time on a 15 mile training run and it gave me all the energy I needed. Tasted lovely and no side effects! I even got a personalised note with my order, so impressed!

I made it to the 100 miles at Cotswold24 thanks to Tailwind! 2 sticks kept me fuelled well for the whole race.

This product definitely seems to do the job in one go and enables you to travel light on those extra long runs. Would have been 5 stars other than the packaging. I decided to try the big bag after struggling on runs with the individual serving pack. Very awkward to open with Vaseline and sweat on your hands and ended up covered in the powder a few times. The larger pack put into a drinks bottle and carried as powder to be made up in other bottles along the way works well. Still struggled opening the large pack with the tear slit and had to get the scissors out.

So far so good...I've only used tailwind on 3 or 4 runs but its easy to prepare and easy to use and saves on carrying pockets/belts or bags full of gels with no annoying wrappers or sticky hands. I've been an avid gel-aholic for years now but this stuff seems to work. Service is great too, with a hand written note and plenty of advice with prompt delivery too! Well worth a dabble!
Tuesday, 25 July 2017 | Sam
As someone with not the strongest stomach I've had a few issues with gels in longer races, and Tailwind has proven to be an excellent alternative. My only issue is the flavour is a little strong for me, so I end up making a weaker solution of half a sachet to 500ml of water (about what I drink per hour), which isn't quite enough calories for me so I do still supplement this with the odd gel, but nearly as many as I'd been using previously.

i have used this product several times. no stomach issues

Tailwind endurance fuel (unsweetened) kept me going throughout the 24 hours.
Tuesday, 25 July 2017 | Helen
I used the stickpacks for a race on Sunday. It was only a 16 miler but had 2,000 feet of hills to bounce over around Bath. Tailwind sustained me very well, I didn't need extra sugar or drinks in the race which I'm usually diving into and it saved me some time as I didn't need to stop at aid stations. So far so good. I'm looking forward to trying these in my next 50k race

Tried the Visor out for the first time at the weekend on a long run. I wouldn't have known i had it on at all. The weather was really warm and it done both things i was asking of it, It shielded the sun from my eyes and stopped sweat getting into my eyes. Overall very Satisfied........
Monday, 24 July 2017 | Richard
Prompt delivery. Initial impressions are very good, the stick packs are convenient and the powder when mixed with water is very pleasant tasting, not at all sickly or heavy on the stomach. I'll be ordering again, and multipack is good for a mix of flavours
Monday, 24 July 2017 | Jon
I used your product on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday (actual event). Didn't use any sickly gels along the way. Felt good and had energy for most of the route, (apart from the climb up Snowdon, brutal lol), didn't feel any side affects as I have previously with gels etc.
Monday, 24 July 2017 | John
Decided to get a larger pack of Mandarin orange after using the stick packs and its handy to be able to meter out the servings according to how you feel that day, rather than just using a full stick.

Lovely fabric, super lightweight but a very strange neckline for a blokes t-shirt - more like a blouse.
