Just happened for the first time, using Zwift for about 3 mos. finished a workout, I wanted to ride extra, and it was stuck in erg mode at 50W going up a steep hill. I have had self imposed issues in the past with multiple devices competing for the trainer’s Bluetooth connection, Wahoo educated me about that, there was definitely NO other device connecting to the trainer.

Trainer: Kickr Core
Zwift device: iPhone 7, iOS 12.1.2
Zwift connection: BLE
Companion app device: iPhone 8, iOS 12.1.2 - WiFi only, Bluetooth radio turned off
Erg mode in workout, the problem is when it should be switching into sim after workout is complete

Having the same problem as described above.

Trainer: Kickr Core Firmware 1.06
Device with Zwift App: Windows 10 Notebook
ANT + and BL

I have the same problems. During a workout there is no response of the Tacx.

Trainer: Tacx Flux 2
Device with Zwift App: IPad 2018
ANT + or BLE: Bluetooth
ERG mode or SIM: ERG mode

Hey all, we’ve been monitoring these issues and are investigating. As said before there doesn’t seem to be a pattern in trainers or devices so it’s something we’re still looking into. Thank you for commenting in this thread but please remember to send in a support inquiry as well.

Trainer: Kickr 18
Device with Zwift App: iPhone X running Zwift, and iPhone XS Max running companion app (erg mode toggle no longer seems to be present?)
ERG mode or SIM: ERG

Wattage not changing between intervals (sometimes) and after the workout ends remains in ERG mode. I have noticed that getting stuck at a certain wattage is more likely to happen if I change the training power bias up or down.

Cycleops Hammer
PC Windows 10, Companion app on Galaxy 8 Android
ANT+ PC. Not sure on phone as it’s both BT and ANT+ capable.
Erg mode.

During a workout got stuck displaying 85W. Tried shifting, different cadences, unpairing and pairing trainer, shutting down and reopening the companion app, all while still in the workout. Unplugging and plugging the trainer power back in solved it.

Trainer: Flux 2

Wahoo Kickr, Mac Mini using Bluetooth 4.0, ERG mode invoked during a ride, does not always happen, has only happened at end of workout

Tried the “remove power smoothing” trick. Good news–no more getting stuck. Bad news–ERG struggled to keep up with my lack of smoothness, especially at low wattages (actually failed a 3-minute low wattage block with ERG on). Reengaged smoothing and ERG maintained steady wattage. No sticking at low wattage. Have to try higher wattage yet.

Same here, interval power target not set for a while (say 10-15 secs), or remaining at high power after the interval (that just kills your legs and motivation, and the whole workout if short bursts)

When stopping pedaling ERG will stop, and re-engage when i start pedaling again.
I wonder if the signal to the turbo trainer is suffering from interference and not picked up by the trainer? Thanks for solving, as am starting to look for alternatives, despite I love Zwift a lot.

I have had this issue already whole last year

High wattages stick again w/ smoothing, and today NOTHING works. Kickr won’t maintain wattages under load, intermittent ERG sticks in free ride (no ERG engaged), just a nightmare after working ok yesterday. Maybe the trainer? Reverting to dumb trainer for now. Aaargh!! (tried omitting smoothing, no dice today)
