Even though it makes the suffering a bit “easier”, no!? :wink:

I like to think of it as facilitating more of the right kind of suffering :slight_smile:

I use this indindustrial fan. Less than a $100AuD and it absolutely cranks out the wind. I don’t really use a towel during my sessions anymore, it dries the holy water before it drops off the end of my nose.

Love mine - with HR control it can get pretty windy and you don’t have to get off and adjust after the warm up.

I was skeptical about the Headwind thinking it was just a gimmick… but the HR rate mode changed my mind!!! The Headwind was well worth the price!

I’m putting it on the same bracket as the Garmin Varia Radar. Seems a bit ott until you use it!!

Didn’t even know it existed. The HR control is a great thing especially in winter

Yeah, must say that I didn’t know I needed mine until I got it.

Good one - the inline remote is all i need, but I don’t think anyone has gone for that yet - this would do as a substitute until that happens - thanks for sharing - lets see if it hits the UK sometime

I am using this at its max speed for every workout and then i got dry throat very fast. Do you guys have such issue? need to drink more than outdoor actually.

The heart rate feature and its shape for the Wahoo Headwind is seriously attractive!

Yeah I do sometimes get a bit of a dry throat. The heart rate control is excellent though, I just had to try a few different settings for the parameters as you set at what HR it’s on minimum and which HR it goes to maximum.

I settled on the max being about 4-5bpm below my LTHR in the end.

That does look good. Shame each is limited to 1 fan though. I need 2 minimum. For now you can wire them up using ~ £4 Sonoff Basic and control them actively using a phone. I typically jettison the phone once they’re on and I’m warm. Not as good as automatic though.

Since getting the headwind I’ve gone down to just the single fan. Get a lot more air than the two I had before. That’s the beauty of it being s directional with the air flow.
