I've used Tailwind for several long distance events, including marathons and have always found it helps get me to the finish. Having run out of it previously and noticing a dip in my performance I'll be making sure I keep it in good stock now. Great personalised service by this company too, something many others out there are lacking. Well done Tailwind!

Have been using Tailwind for longer turbo bike sessions and run a for a while now, via single serving packets from Fab local running shop ( Run Venture). Easy to digest and keeps my energy going.
Just had my first big bag direct from Tailwind - loved the speed of delivery and the personalisation of service.

Great service and a great product. Chose this multi pack for convenience. Will be doing Weekend Warrior at Blenheim this year (fingers crossed) so having the small packs will make it much easier to refill.
A personalised message from the team wishing me good luck and delivered within 48hrs.
The product is so easy to mix - just add water and shake, tastes great and have not had any 'gut' issues when using.

While training for an upcoming endurance lap mountain bike race, I realised that I had a problem finding bottles that could fit on my bike frame.
A friend suggested I try a soft flask as an alternative, so I did exactly that.
Wow, what a game changer it turned out to be! The 500ml bottle fits easily into the back pocket of my cycling jersey and is so easy to access. The cap is awesome as it allows me to sip a little often. The bite valve doesn't leak and is really easy to sup as little or as much as I need at a time - perfect!
I'm actually finding that using a soft flask in my back pocket is easier than fiddling with a tight bottle fit on my bike.
Time to order another one for my upcoming event!!
It really is as good as everyone says!

An ultra running friend recommended that I try tailwind as a complete fuelling system for endurance mountain bike racing and training. I have to admit that I was sceptical that it was as good as she said, but wow, it really is that good!!
I haven't raced with it yet, but have done a number of 2-5 hour training rides and I can honestly say I was gobsmacked! I didn't eat anything else, but didn't get hungry, didn't suffer from abdominal bloating, didn't have my normal munchies post ride and I just felt good.
Yes, it is a bit more expensive than other products, but it is totally worth it. It tastes great - not sickly sweet like other products, nor does it taste salty, making you crave more than you need. Lots of little sips and often is all you need. Try it, you won't be disappointed! I'm a complete convert!
I bought the Naked flavour - it is fresh and clean like a lightly flavoured water - a very subtle but enjoyable taste.
Oh, and the service is prompt and personal - I loved the handwritten note that came in my parcel.
Best way to try different flavours

I am already a big tailwind fan but Iíve only ever had the naked flavour fuel drink as I thought the flavoured ones would be too strong and repeat on me. I was so wrong!! I bought this pack just to try and havenít found a flavour I donít like yet, they are all light and easy on the stomach. Iím also very impressed with the chocolate recovery drink, most protein shakes give me a grumbly tum but not this one!! I love the little handwritten note and your name on the pouch,a lovely personal touch you donít get very often these days.
Great way to get acquainted with Tailwind

I admit I have yet to taste every single flavour on the pack, but I'm finding Tailwind very light and easy to use. The fuelling drinks give you a nice boost just when you need it most and the recovery shakes are probably the best I've tasted. Also, as promised, very easy to consume and digest, even on the go!
Quick delivery, Great product

I use tailwind for long runs and while racing long distance events. The starter pack gives a great range of flavours and allows you to take sachets of power with you or abroad without the hassle of having to carry "unmarked bags of white powder" in your luggage. The sachets are great to carry on long distance events and rides as you can top up as you go. Tasty flavours that keep you going

Had used recovery drink powders from other companies but found them tasting a bit chemically and never seem to mix very well.
Got the vanilla Tailwind Rebuild Recovery sachet as part of a starter set and wow, what a game changer! Tasted delicious, quite thick and creamy and mixed perfectly with no lumps. It was that good I had to go back and order more

This was surprising for me. I was sceptical at first but had reached the point where i would have gels on me in a race but not actually 'want' to have them even though i 'needed' to.
This prompted me to look at alternatives. Happy to have found and settled on tailwind.
Specific things i like:
1. It tastes/feels like flavoured water, not like a sugary drink.
2. It leaves you in an almost perfect balance of feeling light on your stomach but also not hungry and knowing you need to take on food/energy.
I like the Cola and Raspberry flavours.
