Elite Qubo Fluid

(Graham Campbell (WATJ)) #1


I’ve recently bought an Elite Qubo Fluid and connected it to Zwift… unfortunately power stats seem a bit below (c50%). I’ve seen other users have similar issues with this turbo below so hoping there might be a quick fix (other than reducing my profile weight…) Could you let me know how to troubleshoot?

Is this the Elite Qubo Power Fluid?

No just Elite Qubo Fluid?

The Power Fluid is the only one I see on their site. Do you have a link to the one you have? And have you matched it properly when pairing within Zwift?

Matched to Elite red roller so yea think so. Currently 80lbs on Zwift and struggling to break 150W … so ruling out it being a bad day.

80 pounds? Or 80 kilograms?

Have tried various weights but currently 80lbs to see if that helps (rather than 188 actual). Not a huge amount of difference.

Is your tire set to 100psi? And how far away is your ANT+ adapter from your speed sensor?

Yea tyre is about 100. I’ve tried moving laptop to right beside bike but no luck. There is also a noticeable burning rubber smell and tyre is flaking. However turbo should auto adjust pressure to rider weight, ie back wheel is just resting on roller and not fixed there.

Tacx turbo trainer tyre solved issue. Thanks for input =)

Great to hear, Graham! But, how was it solved? Other users may run into similar scenarios :slight_smile:

Just put a tacx turbo trainer tyre on and power looks more reasonable. Assume turbo didn’t like old tyre?!

I had similar problem, after a couple of workouts I realized the brake pad was rubbing the wheel :wink:
