Rooted in science. Proven on the trail.

Carefully formulated to work the way your body works, so you’re fueled during your workout and replenished after.


Endurance fuel


The composition of our fuel matches what the gut absorbs.
Our Endurance Fuel is made with all-natural ingredients and flavors.
It mixes crystal clear with water to meet your calorie, hydration,
and electrolyte needs, no matter how big a day is in front of you.


Better absorption

Endurance Fuel’s glucose/sucrose fuel takes advantage of how our bodies absorb nutrients. The combination of fuel, electrolytes, and water has a synergistic effect, allowing the body to absorb more of each. Once in the bloodstream, the glucose fuels muscles directly, allowing athletes to go longer at higher intensities.

Easy on the gut

Not all stomachs can handle the sticky sweetness or hard-to-digest molecules found in most nutrition products. Sipping Tailwind provides steady, small doses of fuel that pass right through the stomach. 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.

What about protein?

We researched it. We tested it. We asked experts about it, so you don’t have to. Protein during exercise doesn’t improve endurance, but it does correlate with GI distress. Studies show no significant endurance difference between carb-only and carb-protein drinks. Protein is a complex molecule that is hard to digest, potentially shutting down your digestive tract during exercise and causing stomach issues.


Recovery Mix


Tailwind Recovery mixed with water is the perfect post-workout recovery drink.
We add complete protein, electrolytes, healthy fats from coconut milk and just
the right amount of carbohydrates.

Recovery Mix is also non-GMO, gluten free, vegan, soy free and dairy free.



Recovery Mix contains the right kinds and amounts of carbohydrates to restore energy after a hard workout. We use simple sugars, dextrose and sucrose, that are easy to digest and go straight to your bloodstream to take advantage of the “golden hour” after exercise when the body can replenish glycogen stores more quickly than at any other time due to insulin sensitivity.


Only complete protein is used to rebuild muscle, while incomplete protein is burned as energy or has to be filtered by the kidneys. We start with organic rice protein and supplement with the nine essential amino acids to make a perfectly complete protein. Tailwind Recovery Mix contains 3x more complete protein per gram than whey protein isolate, making it much more efficient for rebuilding muscle and sparing kidneys from extra work during recovery.


Recovery Mix contains sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium to restore electrolyte balance* and replace what you sweat out during your exercise. *Meets WHO hydration standards.


To get the same protein, carbohydrates, and electrolytes found in one serving of Recovery Mix, you’d have to eat all of this:
