Spindown calibration


#1

is it necessary if i use a power meter and power match? for my kickr core spindown from 24 mph only gets down to 10 mph when it tells me calibration is complete. not 0 mph.

If you are using Powermatch, it is not “necessary” to calibrate the trainer.

It may improve results, but that is not certain, so some testing may tell you if it helps in your case.


#3

am i even getting a good spindown calibration if it is ending before it reaches zero?


#4

Maybe. You need to see what the message says in the software you are using to calibrate.

It should indicate if it was successful or not.

Yes - the spindown is between two different known speeds - it doesn’t have to go all the way to zero

Also - cosign with @mcneese.chad on spindown not being necessary with power match. I spindown when I move my trainer or swap bikes, but that’s the only time (can be months apart)
