Elite Direto Power Accuracy vs Power Meter


(Jamie MacGregor (YYC)) #1

Hi All - this a bit of a community feedback request. I use a Direto Trainer and have BePro Favero power meter pedals. The pedals are what I base my power on for all my riding, including Zwift.

Has anyone else found a significant difference between the Direto and their power meter?

Mine is about 10 % difference right now (Direto being 10% lower than the pedals). I don’t remember this being the case when I first started to using the Direto (but I cant verify with data). I “feel” like this more came about when I had buggered up the Direto by playing with the wheel circumference from my Wahoo head unit and then fixed it. In the end it not a big deal as i use the pedals as my baseline, but 10% is a pretty large difference and it would be nice to know if its my pedals or the trainer.

 

Thanks!

Hi Jamie, I’ve been using the similar setup, Direto and Favero Assioma Uno. I found power readings to be pretty spot on. The only difference around 8% was when I used Osymetric chainrings.

Favero should release a new firmware in April addressing non round chainrings power readings.
