Utilizes Dark Sky for hyperlocal weather reporting
Headwind grabs the latest weather information for the exact latitude and longitude of the start of your ride and then uses that information, coupled with the data from Strava to give you a difficulty score out of 5 for the ride.
Creates in depth ride and route heatmaps
Hyperlocal wind direction and wind speed data is used to draw your Strava ride or saved route onto a mapbox map.
The route colour is changed based on whether you are headed into the wind or away from the wind which makes it incredibly easy to quickly visualise how hard your ride will be and what sections of the ride will be a challenge.
Past, present, and future difficulty ratings
You can choose to look back at how hard your ride was, use it to calculate how hard your ride will be right now, or use it to predict how hard your ride will be up to 7 days into the future. Never get caught battling a headwind again.
Learn how many calories you burn cycling directly into a headwind
Ever wondered how many more calories you are burning by cycling directly into a headwind?
Headwind will take the wind into account whilst calculating calories burnt during a ride, meaning you can see exactly how many calories you are burning at any given time.
Current Rain Radar for your precise location
Headwind utalizes Rain Viewer to overlay current rain radar for your precise location on top of your ride heatmap.
Wind Visualisation plus Rain Radar equals the perfect ride home.
Built with the commuter in mind
Headwind also includes a forecast view which will show you the weather and difficulty score of a particular ride or route for the next 7 days. This is particularly good for picking which days are best to commute to and from work.
Headwind connects with Strava to sync all your latest rides, fetches hyperlocal weather data from the Darksky weather API, utilzes Rain Viewers rain radar API, and runs on Amazons blazing fast AWS Service.
