Curved Manual Treadmill with Zwift

Hi @Tim_dODZ, hi @Jay_Byrd_on_A_Air_Ru, got my air runner fixed. The problem was one of the plugs from sensor to panel. We have 3 connections from sensor to reach the panel that go inside the structure and hand rails. One of it has a bad contact.

@Jay_Byrd_on_A_Air_Ru I noticed also that connecting the pannel with the first plug coming directly from sensor provides a better bluetooth conectivity. At least faster recognition. I didn’t notice any difference from that in zwift response…

Anyway, thanks guys!

Hey @Matt_Barrett1,
I know I’m off topic here slightly but I can find so little info on the Titanium Strength Curved Treadmill out there :exploding_head:… Would love to know if you recommend it as a curved option? Obviously, it’s a little cheaper than some of the others mentioned here - do you feel like there are compromises in build quality or basic functionality?
Would appreciate your thoughts! :pray:

Hi @Jay_Swindon I would recommend, it’s a little bit more agricultural compared to something like the well refined woodway and the version I have the screen is poor but as I don’t really use it it’s not an issues. Running wise I have not found any difference to the one at my local gym I tested the curved manual trendmill. I’ve now had it for 18 months and it’s going strong. I’ve done runs with both the npe runn and the stryd pod on seperate watches to get the data into zwift/garmin/strava and it all works fine.

It’s easier with the trendmill to run interval or sprinting or speed session rather than long endurance runs, think my longest run is 2 hours but I get bored! But just remember it’s more effort at slower speeds and you pace/speed is slower so I run to heart rate or power with the stryd pod (but I change my calibrate from 0.97 to 1.2 to get similar power to effort as the outside).

As a cyclist who is trying to add running to my exercise regime my solution to the boredom of longer runs is to use my Stryd as a power meter and join cycling events while running on the treadmill. It is much more engaging to me to keep pace with a peloton of riders on a circuit like RGV at c.200W than to use a “run” simulation where I’m creeping round without a draft or a bunch to hang with.

It also means that I receive full credit for the power I’m producing as opposed to the penalty of slower pace on the curved treadmill at its permanent 8% (?) incline equivalence.
