FTP test and trainer effort slider bar


(Les Warden Il) #1

Just finished the short FTP test using the CycleOps wheel-on trainer. There is a slider bar in Zwift configuration that can adjust % effort the trainer puts out. 0-100% setting. 5 minutes before my FTP test ended I remembered I had this slider set to about 65-70%.
Will this affect my overall FTP test number or is the slider even considered during the FTP test??

Trainer difficulty won’t affect your FTP test results.

No, it only effects what gear you are in (simple explanation, but there is a whole write up on it).
