Set Me Up

Set Me Up

What you need

To ride on VCS you need a PC or MAC (Android “soon”) and a ANT+ USB Stick. I suggest a extension cable not longer as 3 meter.
VCS support different ANT+ compatible trainer devices and Hardware:
“ANT + Powermeter with Cadence”, “Ant+HeartRateStrap”, “FEC”, “FakePower” “with Cadence and HeartRateStrap”

Working devices from some users:
Kickr, Neo, Tacx Neo Smart T2800, Elite Drivo, Power Meter, FE-C

What i recommend

A better quality USB Extension cable
A Towel or 2
A rubber mat on the ground to catch sweat
A Fan
Enough water to drink
Take your time and make sure you have all in a good distance before you start your ride…
