How to Read ZPower

I have completed 6 races but I’m not 100% sure how to read all the colors. Any help you can provide would be great.

  1. AVG - What do the different colors mean for the numbers and lighting bolts?
  2. NP - What do the different colors mean?
  3. Bold and Red - I assume this highlights my best/highest for a category?
  4. Punch - What is this and what does it represent?
  5. Result/Gain - What should I take from these?

Also, above this it shows my 15 sec, 1 min, 5 min, and 20 min power numbers. Does the 20 min number mean that is my FTP? Or do I get/find that somewhere else?

Also, based on the 20m 2.6 w/kg I assume that qualifies me to remain in C? I’m good with it, just trying to figure out how to read it.

Thanks again.


this is your ZP ranking

Thanks for the link!

Green lightning bolt is the Live results taken from zwift at the time of the race
Blue is the “final” data (more frequent sampling) taken from the .FIT file once it’s been uploaded, usually within a few hours of event completion
