Why can't I hit the target power?


#1

hi there,

Before I ask the question, here is my setup.
Tacx Neo in Erg Mode, connected via BT.

When I complete my workouts, I am never able to hit target power on intervals. It is always 1W below. It may not be a huge issue but drives me crazy :).

Is anyone facing the same problem?

Most likely it’s because you’ll be lowering your average over the first few seconds as the resistance climbs from rest level to interval level.

As you didn’t post the power graph in your post, thought of asking, might there be a chance that you are using too big of a gear during the intervals for the watts needed. That may cause too much fluctuation in power, which in turn may lower the average watts.

it should not be the case as I am in ERG mode. Plus I was on small chainring and mid gear :thinking:

My Kickr 2016 is the same, i’m always 1W under

Makes me mad:)

This is the same for me too. I’ve got a 2016 KICKR, I’ve updated firmware, completed spindowns, tried changing gears, speeding or slowing my cadence and still I’m always -1% power output. It’s does my head in but I’m slowly learning to accept that’s how it is and I am hitting my numbers!

1W! ONE WATT. 0.5%. Power meters and trainers aren’t even that accurate :wink:

It is all about Watts, even it is 1 :joy::joy::joy:

you all would go crazy if you were in resistance mode the whole time.
