Kurt Kinetic inRide Sensor Compatibility & Connection

Follow

Compatibility

There are two different types of inRide sensors that Kurt Kinetic makes.  Please see below to find out if your inRide sensor will work with The SUF.

1st & 2nd Generation - Not Compatible With The Sufferfest Training System

Notice that the inRide sensor (the little box at the end of the arrow) is black in color.  These transmit their data in a manner that The Sufferfest Training System is not able to decipher.

3rd Generation  - Compatible With The Sufferfest Training System

Notice that the inRide sensor (the little box at the end of the arrow) is green in color.  These transmit their data in a manner that The Sufferfest Training System can use for power and cadence data.

Not Compatible?  There Is Still A Way... Virtual Watts!

It is never good news to find out that your sensor won't work with our app but there is another way.  Don't worry though, if you have a speed sensor on your bike we can use that along with your Kurt Kinetic trainer to connect to The Sufferfest app using Virtual Watts.

Follow this link to learn about setting up Virtual Watts in The Sufferfest app.

Note: Virtual Watts will give you nearly the same data that the inRide sensor would.  The Sufferfest app is just calculating your power numbers rather than the calculations happening inside of the inRide sensor itself.

 

Connections - Setting Up Your Sensor

1.   Start by firing up the app and selecting the video you want to do. Tap it to be brought to the VIDEO DETAILS screen and then tap the PLAY button. This brings you to the RIDE CHECK screen.

2.  Tap SCAN FOR DEVICES.

3.  Tap the POWER icon.  

In here you will see the connection options for the inRide sensor.

Note: If you don't have Bluetooth you won't see option 2

Note: If you don't have an Ant+ dongle plugged in, you won't see option 1

4.  Select one of the options to connect.  They will all behave the same way.

5.  Tap 'Enter Sufferlandria' and when the workout starts you will have both power and cadence readings displayed.

Note: There is no need to connect a sensor in the CADENCE section of the Ride Check screen.  Connecting the inRide as power will allow it to send both data sets to The Sufferfest Training System.

  • Does the new update work with Gen 1/2 inride sensors now?

  • Hi Andrew,

     

    Sorry, only Gen 3 inRide sensors work with The Sufferfest app.
