Power lag from Wahoo Device


Hey everyone.

I am using a Kurt Kinetic (dumb trainer) with a Wahoo RPM speed and cadence sensor along with the iOS app on my phone.

Unfortunately, there is about a 12-18 sec delay going from a low power reading (e.g. 130W) to a high power reading (e.g. 270W). As you can see by the photo Wahoo%20lag there is a lag half way through each of the 30/30 intervals.

I have talked to both TR and Wahoo and they aren’t seeing any issues.

I have tried turning off my wireless router as possible cause but the same result. The only thing left is changing batteries I guess.

Has anyone experienced this issue?


VP is tied directly to the wheel speed.

Can you use a head unit to watch the wheel speed at the same time as running the workout?

I’d be curious to hear if the speed shown on the head unit is similarly slow to respond.

Effectively test to see if it is an issue from the wheel sensor or the reading device (head unit vs your phone/TR).
