So I was wondering if there were plans for enabling some sort of handicap mode for allowing you to ride with other riders of differing fitness levels. For example if my ftp is 300w and I’m riding with someone with 200w ftp, I’m either going to crush them just riding along or I’m going to be coasting the whole time. Obviously you don’t want to make it easier to claim koms, but I see no harm in making your avatar slower for the same wattage. I see this as a percentage slider to make you 50% slower or something.
i guess you can change your in game weight to the same effect, but I don’t know how zwift handles the physics. Is it w/kg at all times or mostly on the uphill?
