Do you need a smart trainer to race

Hi everyone I’m new to Zwift racing and want to race on Friday. Unfortunatly my Wahoo Kicker stopped working and has been sent back to Wahoo and replacment from Wahoo is on it’s way. I have been using an old mag trainer and using my pedal based power meter to continue on Zwift. Is it ok to use this set up to race. I have also now set up an account on Zwiftpower.

Please let me know your thought


Hi @Paul_Roberts8799

Welcome to the forum.

Pedal power meter is as accurate as you can get, go for it.


Thanks for your reply :slight_smile: I will go for it with my current set up then.
