I have a Kickr Core and I’m using Apple TV for Zwift. I find that I’m mostly riding in the top three gears, sometimes two, because the base resistance seems much too low. I’ve found similar posts in the forum, but they are usually hijacked by no resistance on climbs problems…Resistance on climbs is not a problem that I have, that all seems to work as expected.
I have the trainer gradient resistance set at the default 50%. I have tried spindown in the Apple TV app (fails a lot) and also using the Wahoo app, before connecting to Zwift but still the same problem remains.
Does anyone have a solution for this?
OK, I have found a solution for this problem.
I connected the Kickr Core to the Wahoo Fitness app and messed with the ‘Workout’ settings. In sim mode, I changed the resistance settings . I also changed the level and power curve settings …pretty randomly
I then disconnected and connected to Zwift via Apple TV. There was instantly a more realistic resistance at 0% gradient and it has stayed that way. I don’t believe that the actual settings I input to the Wahoo app have stuck (because it is no longer paired to it) , but think that because I changed the settings, it has reset the baseline resistance for the Kickr.
Again, I have to stress that I have never had any resistance problems on climbs. There is plenty of resistance for that …ouch. My only problem was an unrealistic resistance on flats (0% gradient) .
Any problem with low or no resistance on climbs is a completely different issue which I have not experienced.
Anyway, I now have a wider gear range when using Zwift, so problem solved.
