I can’t seem to get up a great deal of speed on descents. I’m using the Wahoo kickr.
it doesn’t seem to make much difference whether I’m putting out 150watts or 300watts. My speed will be around 25-30 mph (although my top speed in the ride may be 36 or 42 mph)
I understand that the speed should be lower in corners, but I can’t seem to influence my speed much on strings descents by increasing my power. Compared to in real life I could coast down a hill at 25 or pedal and get a fair amount more speed.
anyone see experience this?
and if there is a cap on decent speed (which I know I am not close to as I see other riders with similar average speeds but much higher top speeds) the. Is there some way to show this so that I don’t bother gunning it on descents and getting no extra speed, and can save energy for climbs.
Im also finding I’m pushing very high gears throughout just to get enough resistance
