I was hoping you could help me. I recently bought a Kickr Core and have been using it on Zwift.
I seem to be having some resistance issues. Today when doing a workout, the resistance was all over the place. At one point it was requesting me to keep a power output of 195W and then 225W. No matter how fast I pedeled (between a cadence of 100-140), i could not reach this maxium output (Maxing out around 170W and it felt like I was just spinning). Then when I came to cool down periods where it was expecting me to output 145W, the resistance suddenly went right up, and a cadence of 70 was outputting over 250W (I had to slow the cadence as I just couldn’t spin any faster due to the resistance).
This is obviously no use, and I have tried the following to rectify the issue:
I tried unpairing the Kickr from the Wahoo app when I was on Zwift.
I have done multiple spin tests
The connection seems to be fine, as it is very responsive to the power, so I’m convinced it’s not the connection issue.
I am running Zwift on my desktop PC with Windows 10 via Bluetooth connection. I have the latest firmware installed (1.1.1). I know going back to a previous Firmware can help issues like this. Can anyone advise what to put it back to if this is the case?
If anyone can give me some advice on how to sort this, or if there is something I can do to remedy the issue, that would be great. This is my first smart trainer, so I maybe just need to get used to it, but this was particularly bad on my workout today (I’ve done about 6 sessions now, and the resistance has been very twitchy since I got it. Hopefully the item isn’t faulty).
I look forward to hearing from you
