Time for the test
Tuesday, 16 July 2019  |  Richard

One of the reasons I was drawn to Tailwind was its statement about not having an affect on the gut, one less thing to worry about on race day I thought.
I've recently completed my first 50 mile Ultra and Tailwind was all I used for the duration.
I used the Raspberry Buzz and Lemon flavour stickpacks and I never had any gut issues or hunger pangs, it totally removed them from the equation allowing me to concentrate on making the legs move.
The customer service aint half bad either, its a nice touch to get a personalised note with your order. If you've not tried it get on it, you won't look back.

Yes, found something I can stomach

After using tailwind twice I agree with all the hype. Training for a half marathon. Tailwind’ is light on my tummy but keeps me feeling like I can keep going!

Trial run
Tuesday, 16 July 2019  |  Richard

Had a stick of this given to me (raspberry buzz), I thought I'd slip it in on a short run (10k) as I get thirsty and I suffer badly from cramp even on these short hops, looked on the website and saw small sips over an hour per serving so I did as I was told, bit of a differance, no cramp, no queeziness like I get from gels either, taste isn't too srrong so if your expecting fresh raspberry tingling on your tongue you'll be dissapointed, what you do get is enough flavour to offset bland water which is enough for me, to sweet and I feel sick and my stomach revolts, more than one occasion I've had gels cause "interesting farts" which is why I no longer use them, now I've gone whole hog in and bought my first 50 serving bag in anticipation of man vs lakes, bring on the finish line

Perfect piece of kit.....how have I gone so long without!
Monday, 15 July 2019  |  Rachel

I have been wanting one of these for ages and when I did my last food order they were free!!! By far the best piece of free kit I have ever had! I took it to my swim run event the weekend and at first I through how on earth am I going to store this! Well I asked the organiser if it could be taken to the first food stop,which they did for me. On collection at the food stop ,everyone was hammering the gels and I got to have my normal nutrition,perfect. The bottle was so easy to carry and when I got to my next swim it went inside my wetsuit and caused me no issues at all! As I drank more on my next few runs it started to fit in my rear wetsuit pocket.....a really handy piece of kit for racing,much better than the standard running bottles

Swim run speed cup fun
Monday, 15 July 2019  |  Rachel

This cup is brilliant. I had never heard of speed cups until I entered the swim run event with my friend last minute and when I went to order my next batch of nutrition I found them online with my food order....perfect! Unlike slot of the cups i saw others use i could fit mine into my wetsuit pocket where as others seemed to have bigger ones they had to clip onto a belt, I preferred my option of pull it out ,have a drink and fold it away. Totally gutted that when I finished I lost my cup.....i had been lazy on my last transition and instead of putting it back in my pocket i put it into my wetsuit (tiredness and bad decision making) and it fell out when i obviously took my kit off and i forgot to check for it.......so I will need to order another one.

Excellent Product and Customer Service

Hi,

Great Product, have been using /testing this product for my LSR and its excellent - Easy on digestion, keeps energy and electrolytes up - no complains.

Would also mention that customer service is very good as well, there was a delivery issue with this order and it was sorted promptly and professionally by the tailwind team. Thanks,
John

Tailwind is excellent. Not too sweet, flavours are good and easy to drink. Seems to supply good amounts of energy.

Whats to say
Monday, 15 July 2019  |  Steve

Loved Tailwind for the last few years, dont run anything over a half marathon without it. So much so went to the Tailwind challenge, as the stuff doesnt go off either - incentive to enter more races!

Hydrapak

Really light and compact, squashes down to take up minimal space then springs back up well. Looking forward to using this.

Perfect for races
Monday, 15 July 2019  |  Richard

bought this as the hydrapak bottles are the best I have found and this little cup can be trusted too. Squashes to nothing and pops back to shape. Will be using this for rest of this years races.
