Change resistance level for classic trainers

When connecting my classic trainer it uses resistance of 3/10. Is there a way to use a higher resistance so I don’t spin out whenever I try to sprint?

Zwift uses a power curve for classic trainers and the watts are an estimate based on the power curve. So, if Zwift used resistance 3/10 for the power curve then that is all you can use or your watts/power will not be even close to accurate.

Best case, contact support and request they use a new power curve for your brand trainer with a higher resistance setting.

Very new to swift so this might be a dummy question but ;
When using classic trainer, does swift warn you to increase/decrease resistance manually according to the route info (uphill/downhill) ?

Hi @Burak_BAKIRSOY welcome to Zwift.

No zwift don’t warn you, when you setup your trainer on Zwift you are being instructed to use a certain resistance level, and you leave it there.

When you get to a hill your speed will drop and you will change gears to keep the speed up.

See the video below, his trainer is at resistance setting #2
