Recommendations for turbo trainer fans? Is there an industry standard one?

Cheers!

Turbo trainer noob here…

Bought a Tacx Flow off my mate today, do I need anything else to get on Zwift i.e. sensors etc?

I’ve got the same turbo and didn’t need one with a MacBook or iPad. I think you only need ant+ if you want to connected sensors for more accurate watts, heartrate (if not Bluetooth) and rpm etc. It’s worth trying out zwift with basic kit to see how you get on and then adding more if you need it.
