Tailwind Endurance Fuel stick gives you the famous Tailwind formula in easy to transport 54gram stick packs, enough for TWO servings, making them ideal for fuelling on the go during ultra running events, or for keeping in your gear bag or running vest for backup fuel when you hit the wall. Just tear and pour into a water bottle for 200 calories of Tailwind goodness, no mess, no fuss. Tailwind Endurance Fuel gives you complete fuel, hydration, and electrolytes in a tasty drink that won’t upset your stomach and was designed to overcome the common nutrition problems faced by ultra-endurance athletes in events like the ’50s, 100’s, 24-hour, and multi-day epics. Using a blend of two simple sugars – Dextrose and Sucrose, Tailwind’s fuel, electrolytes, and water has a synergistic effect, helping the body absorb more of each. Once in the bloodstream, the glucose in Tailwind fuels muscles directly, allowing athletes to go longer at higher intensities. If caffeine if your go-to endurance kick chooses from THREE “Buzz” Flavours for your caffeine boost (35mg per serve/70mg per stick pack). To help maintain optimum performance and muscle function, Tailwind combines a blend of three salts, Potassium Chloride, Calcium Carbonate, and Magnesium Citrate, which provide an electrolyte profile that matches what you’re sweating out.
Each Tailwind stick pack contains 200 calories. Mix contents with 600 to 750mls of water. Give it a shake or two, and go.
Sip regularly for steady energy, electrolytes, and hydration. For longer grunts, try our medium and large sizes.

The organic flavours are subtle, providing a ‘clean’ and ‘light’ taste with a mouth feel as close to water as you can get while still meeting your nutrition needs.
Your hydration pack will love Tailwind too. Tailwind dissolves completely on contact with water and cleans up with a quick rinse. No film, no lingering aftertaste, no gooey mess.

Tailwind’s electrolyte profile mimics what you’re sweating out. Tailwind is all you need. Go ahead and donate those electrolyte pills to a good cause. You won’t need them anymore (and you won’t need to buy them!).
Not all stomachs can handle the sticky sweetness or hard-to-digest molecules found in most nutrition products. Sipping Tailwind as you train or compete provides steady, small doses of fuel that pass right through the stomach. When mixed correctly, the composition of Tailwind’s fuel matches what the gut is made to absorb, so Tailwind enters your system quickly, without taxing the digestive tract.

• Tasty all day: Clean, light flavours taste better the longer you go.

Each serving is 100 calories. For endurance workouts, mix 2-3 serves per 24 oz of water per hour. Adjust to your personal calorie needs during training, using hunger as a guide. When it’s dialled in, you’ll feel satisfied and energetic, not hungry or full. On hot days, keep the same calories per hour, but increase water. To use in combo with other foods, reduce Tailwind intake by the calories you’re consuming elsewhere to avoid overloading the gut. For shorter workouts (<2hr), you can use less Tailwind to taste.
