Resistance mode change

feature-request

#1

I am requesting that in resistance mode where you change the % of resistance instead on a slide bar allow direct number input. ie type in 37% instead of trying to slide to a number. Could be just me but I can never make precise adjustments.


#2

I agree with you on this one! I use an “Air Mouse” and finessing the slider is nearly impossible. Would rather type it in.


#3

I agree. Maybe on the TR app, the volume buttons could be used to control the resistance when the trainer is in resistance mode?


#4

I’ve only used resistance mode on one occasion, but I’m a little unsure on how the percentage slide works? What does each percentage increase equate to in terms of watts or resistance? I’m using a Tacx Neo


#5

It’s effectively a percentage of the trainees total resistance. Depending on your FTP something around 15-35% is probably a good start.


#6

FYI, you can use the left/right arrow keys on the keyboard to make adjustments in increments of 1%.


#7

so resistance mode 20% is same as slope 2% for example? I’m always confused here. I normally use 20-30% when I’m using resistance mode.


#8

Not necessarily. Dont try to equate Standard and Resistance.

Resistance = percentage of trainer max resistance level (think of percent relative to max watt resistance rating)

Standard = estimated slope of a road (think of a 2% vs 8% hill)

Thanks Chad! Yes, I do understand a little bit better now :smiley:
