i would need some help with Zwift, my Tacx Flux (belt driven) and ERG Mode. Over the past weeks i started to doubt whether my trainer is working as intended.
(Both my trainers firmware and Zwift are up to date!)
ERG mode: i understand that ERG mode is only activated during workouts and aims for a target wattage (personal FTP score) regardless of my cadence, am i right? So when my cadence is higher the resistance should drop and when my cadence is lower the trainer puts up the resistance to meet the target wattage.
I chose a random workout with ERG mode ON and tried to keep my cadence at ~70 rpm. As you can see on the screenshot the wattage always stays the same:
Then, in the same session, i disabled ERG, restarted the workout and again hit ~70 rpm. Still no change:
Even as i fiddled around with “Incline” on the companion app, i could not feel any change in resistance.
So what am i missing here? Could it be that my trainer is defective and simply not working with ERG mode?
