KICKR Headwind Bluetooth Fan is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it, if you can afford it For many folks, the idea of spending this kind of money on a fan isn't going to work, and I totally get that. But if you're serious about Zwift/Trainer Road/whatever, and you have the cash, you won't be disappointed. It works, as advertised, with zero setup (as long as you have a Wahoo ecosystem), and...yeah! That's it! It blows air, it keeps you cool, it's pretty quiet. It just makes it more fun and makes you perform better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I've been using trainers since about 1993 (yes I know, I'm old), but that being said, I have had the opportunity to try many fans over the years. And I've learned that no mater what fan I use, I'm a sweater. Like, sweat draining out of my shoes type. Again, I know, kinda gross but it is what it is. So about a month ago my go to fan finally broke after about 15 years and my search began for a new one. I watched all the videos from guys who got the fan to test it and then I looked at the commercial fans at the home improvement stores. After much debate and as much research as I could do, I decided to pull the trigger and get the Headwind. I do not regret that decision in the least bit. I've done a few rides on Zwift using the Headwind and it is freaking awesome. I have it synced to my HR monitor and it works perfectly. Now I still sweat, but at least I don't feel like I'm going to overheat and it is the coolest I've ever felt on a trainer. Totally worth the price paid. Now the one thing I did not expect was the fact that when the fan is blowing on high, my sweat no longer puddles below me. Instead, it is blown all over around me. Including on the power transformer for my trainer. Needless to say, some re-engineering/waterproofing of my workout area will need to be done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adds a new dimension to Zwift Just purchased the Headwind after seeing the "beach ball" wind test on youtube. Basically this fan has much greater airflow and more directed. Since I enjoy my Zwifting experience so much and I like to minimize sweat accumulation on the floor and bike I thought I would get a more powerful fan. (I previously had 2 large fans on me) The power is great and provides easy, powerful cooling throughout the ride. I am 6'2" and sit upright so I raised the Headwind about 6 inches off the ground with some pads and tilted up slightly. I experimented with the app to try the HR, Speed variable settings. The speed setting makes it feel real, but when climbing at slow speeds the need for cooling is highest indoors and I didn't want my experience to feel THAT real. When things got interesting was with the Heart Rate variability setting. I set the high and low limits on the app and when riding harder I got more air, when riding easier I received less air. I finally felt like goldilocks when I got the upper and lower bounds just right. That made the Zwift experience better regardless of speed. I have the Wahoo climb but recommend the headwind first if looking to upgrade your Zwift experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must Leaving in the desert I've been looking for a tool like this forever. It really works great and due to all the different possible modes to run it you will never have to dial your fans in every other minute. Super powerful, Great investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best fan period Used it for a month. Much higher output than normal fans and producing a much more focused beam of air resulting in better cooling. Using the heart rate as regulator. Really happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best fan I ever had Maybe a bit high pricing, but the greatest fan I ever had and high quality as expected from Wahoo. :)
