Perfect Fuel for a long stage race in any kind of weather
"Tailwind Endurance Fuel stick packs were a life saver in the 250 km Gobi race, throughout temperatures ranging from 0 to 48 C. They are very easy to open, light weight, they dissolve instantly, and contain the perfect amount of energy and sodium to deal with extreme temperatures. Its balanced taste makes it easy to drink and provides you with an immediate boost. The novice Afghan ultra runners in my team especially loved the lemon ones! 5 stars."
- Virginie G, Hong Kong
Very easy to stomach
"I have been trying out this product on my long training runs as an experiment to see if I want to take some on my next desert race. I found it to be very easy to stomach and it tastes light and refreshing. I felt I had plenty of energy though it seemed odd at first not to be carrying gels and other fuels. Does what it says! 5 stars."
- Janine C, Hong Kong

So Far, So Good
"I am one of those people with chronic GI distress problems and I've tried lots of things in the past. So far, I love Tailwind. It tastes good and doesn't upset the stomach at all. Perhaps because it comes with essential electrolytes, I also find that it keeps me hydrated and make me sweat better during long runs. I use soft flasks for fuel and electrolytes. With Tailwind, the powder dissolves instantly into water. With some other brands, I've had to deal with the constant frustration of clogged-up soft flasks, making it difficult to drink from and refill during a long event. Like someone just switching from energy bars or natural food to Ucan, you've got to learn to differentiate between the sensations of hunger and low energy. 5 stars."
- Bei H, Hong Kong.

Perfect for a trail race
"I have been using this for the past few months and I am really happy with it. I no longer get pains in my gut after a couple of hours of running and I have a constant source of energy. I really like the flavours too. Not too sweet or strong. 5 stars."
Leanne E, Hong Kong

Skip the gels
"I've been using this for a little over a week - runs from 2 - 2.5 hours. Tastes great and very easy on the stomach. I was able to skip the gels… less stuff to carry on the run! 5 stars."
- Harry T, Hong Kong

Tasty energy source!

I have to admit that I have a pretty good stomach so I'd never feel any stomach problem (proven by devoured 7 cup noodles in 5 CPs in HK100), so I can't tell if they are more stomach friendly. But one thing I can confirm is

they taste much better than other energy drink powder I have tried, especially the orange favor. They dissolve easily when added to water, if you added the powders in the bottles before adding water you may need some shaking to make the clogs dissolve. I did a 12km urban trail run under hot weather, I felt the energy boost is fast and constant, but would like to test it in a longer run. I also did a Lo Fu Tau hike with my friend last weekend, and tried the Tailwind with a bit of tweak by adding a teaspoon of runners superfood - chia seeds in it, wait 15-30 minutes and it turned to a good stomach filling summer beachside drink. I guess that should serve well in long races too. Next time I will try to add some ice in it! 5 stars."

"I am in love with the product today, maybe even more so, than I was at first. I haven’t had to worry about gels, Clif bars, shot blocks, etc during any of my rides."

Every Man Tri

"After putting Tailwind in the grinder for 2 weeks of workouts, it’s safe to report that they held up their end of the bargain.

With no chews or gels, we made it through indoor and outdoor runs and rides without the need for solids.

There were no dizzy spells, GI distress or needs to go to the emergency room for IV fluids and electrolytes…"

Gear Junkie

"…overall it was amazing for me to eliminate the complication of solid food while biking and to simplify my nutrition so that I could solely focus on the race at hand.

It’s one of the only liquid foods that I’ve tried for endurance racing that I can actually endure for the long haul. Scoop it up!"

"It’s a tribute to Tailwind that it worked as well in a lighter concentration combined with food as it did when mixed 'thicker' and used by itself. Highly recommended!"

"All the flavors are extremely smooth, light and don’t leave a sugary film or aftertaste in your mouth – making them enjoyable for hours on end, both cold and warm."

"Hands down the best I have ever felt both during and after completing this or any ultra-distance. I was never hungry during the run nor did I have any monster pains or distress after I was done."

TRun Nation

"I noticed right out of the gate, I loved the taste, and it tastes better as the day goes on.

I feel very confident that this is the only fuel I need. I won’t carry gels. I won’t carry chews. I won’t carry additional electrolytes…It’s my new drink!"
