Hello, I have a question about ramp FTP tests.
I have read some recent articles on cyclingweekly and bikeradar about FTP tests, where they said that classic ramp test on zwift starts on 100w and every minute it should rise in 20w increments. And ramp test lite should start at 50w with 10w per minute increments.
My current ftp (according 20 minute outdoor test) is 266w (I have not done ramp test yet). My weight is 89kg.
According to FTP tests folder in my workout collections in zwift both of ramp tests are different from what I have found:
- Classic ramp test starts at my current FTP 266w with big 53w per minute increments, which is strange- according to that, my ramp process should take only 3 minutes to get to 372w (to resulting ftp 266w).
- Ramp test lite starts at 133 with 26w per minute increments which should take me 9-10 minutes to get to my actual ftp result.
Which one should I choose? Ramp process should take optimally 14-18 minute. Classic ramp test is really strange as there are big gaps between minutes.
Does Zwift recently changed ramp tests?
