Jumping into the world of Zwift can be a bit overwhelming: there’s a lot to learn! The more you ride indoors, the more you’ll see the need for certain things which aren’t necessary outdoors: fans, sweat towels, power supplies, etc.
We’ve been there, and we’re here to help. What follows is our “short list” of recommended accessories for the new Zwifter.

Pain Cave Upgrades
I’ve got two for my setup, hooked up to a Wifi smart power strip so I can turn them on or off as desired.
Turn your fan, smart trainer, etc on or off from your mobile phone. No more riding with your fan on when it’s below freezing in your pain cave!
Buy a color not used in your home to avoid confusing the good towels with the Zwifting ones.
We like Military Energy Gum for the taste and added boost. The perfect pre-race pick me up.
Sometimes we need a little reminding that suffering is what makes us stronger. Embrace it!
