...we started off as satisfied Tailwind Nutrition customers and decided to join the Tailwind Nutrition family to make these amazing products available in Hungary! We work with some incredible Hungarian sponsored athletes to bring Tailwind to as many people as possible.
The two co-founders, Gábor and Dani, are both active trail runners who have been happily using Tailwind products since 2019. Although they were very satisfied with the results of having Tailwind as their main nutrition, they struggled with getting their favorite products, because it wasn't available for purchase in their country, and getting it delivered from abroad challenging and later on even impossible. That's why they decided to collaborate with Jenny, Jeff and the whole Tailwind Team to bring Tailwind to Hungary and make it available for all kinds of athletes here.
