FTP (Short) and KICKR

(Jason Henley Kiss (C)) #1



Just completed my second FTP test with my KICKR, and everything was going well until the test actually started. For some reason ERG mode dint disable and I was spinning like hell but only registering 120w at 115 cadence.

Using the Wahoo app I had to manually adjust the resistance then close the app for Zwift to work.

Any help?

Annoying as I had to pedal at 350w+ to get back to my original FTP and now I am toast!

I had the same problem this morning.

When I crossed the bow for the test to start, I needed to pedal at 115+ RPM to even get to the average Wattage that I want to maintain. 

I was hoping my kicks would give more resistance but that there was a delay, but nope!

I stopped pedaling like a headless chicken, closed the workout and did a manual test on the flattest circuit in the normal workout mode and used my strava to calculate the FTP.

Same here with my Kickr, needed to pedal 132 rpm to reach the wattage. Finally just stopped the test.
