The Headwind is the first ever smart fan designed for cycling. It’s targeted airflow pattern mirrors the shape and position of a cyclist’s body while riding. The fan is sensor controlled so as your speed or heart rate increases, so will the fan speed, and there are also 4 manual speed settings should you want to set your own ideal airflow.
Road.cc enjoyed the focussed airflow and the bluetooth remote control. But weren’t impressed with the sensor control feature or the price (relative to a gym fan).
Cylingtips were more effusive, prasing Wahoo for making something that seems so grossly overpriced at first, but almost a necessary luxury after using it.
User reviews are equally positive, with many complementing how the integration with heart rate measurement makes for a much more comfortable trainer experience.
