My 2019 Kickr is reading 30 watts lower than my single sided Stages, I’m sure this has been discussed ad nauseam, but I am currently losing my mind.
I have done several factory spindowns on the Kickr and the stages is calibrated, removed the wahoo app, reinstalled. Firmware is up to date.
This is my 2nd Kickr and this one just seems off. Wahoo support has been less than helpful, telling me the kickr is fine and its within tolerance. Which seems insane to me because Kickr states on their site +/- 2% power.
I understand there are some discrepancies between hub based and crank based power. Knowing that, I just put on a new cassette and chain on to no avail.
I know stages can be generous with their power output, but this seems way beyond generous.
This is the same ride, using the kickr and the stages. 30 watt difference in average power?!?!?!

did an additional test with the kickr and a different bike with a Quarq…and got the same 30 watt power differential, with the kickr reporting 30 watts lower.
anybody have this problem or any solutions?! I am losing my mind, I paid a lot for the kickr and would like it to function as intended and wahoo support seems to have written me off.
