L R balance

would like zwift to include left right power balance in the exported file please.

I would also like to be able to see L/R power data from my PowerTap P1 pedals. That would allow me to work on improving my form while still enjoying social aspects of Zwift.

Yes, as new Zwift user I am really surprised you can not see left/right power.

Yes, like many Zwifters, I use the platform in part as an injury recovery tool. It is really helpful to me to follow my L/R imbalance and I would love to see this info captured.

Add this to the custom HUD requests.

Custom huds would be ideal. But I think it’s a long way down the road. Just put it in the fit file so we can view it on Garmin connect/trainingpeaks etc after the fact.

Yes please.

Any updates on this? Kind of annoying I have to run my garmin alongside zwift on the indoor trainer just to get these metrics.

Why annoyed? Dual power recording is what all of the cool kids are doing now days to keep the racing legit.

Interesting. That’s a good idea for the racing, but I’m more concerned with how I track my training outside of Zwift (Training Peaks or Cycling Analytics for example). If I upload the file from zwift, I don’t have L/R data. If I upload the file from my Garmin, I don’t have the map or distance I rode. Annoying, no? Would be nice if I didn’t have to utilize my Garmin in the first place and rely on zwift to store ALL the data in one file.

New to Zwift in the last few weeks, love the platform! Seems like a no-brainer to have your instantaneous L/R radial power graph available if your trainer/power meter support that?

Is there any update on this? I’d be happy with it in the fit file that’s sent to trainingpeaks, can’t imagine it’s that hard to implement compared to the rest of Zwift. Seems like this has been requested for years and nobody’s paying attention…

Same issue for me. I’m having to run my Garmin in parallel and uploading a 0 mile ride to see power balance. It would be great if Zwift would at least include left right metrics in the FIT download file.

I’m also interested in this feature. The Build Me Up plan has Right/Left pedal drills, but Zwift only picks up the Right side. It wasn’t a very effective drill for me.

My L/R balance is very poor. I’ve been zwifting since the lockdown, and am now unable to analyze my L/R balance.

We don’t need the data to be shown on Zwift. Just record it, and put it in the file, so that it could be used to analyze later using other tools.

@Zwift Support: For a Request that is open for so long, I don’t see any response from Zwift support. You can at least tell people if things are not possible, or if it is planned, when is the expected date.

As others have pointed out, we are currently dual recording these activities with another head unit to obtain our L:R balance numbers - and I haven’t found an easy way to combine the data FIT afterwards, as there is always a time difference.

So, another +1 vote for me for this feature.

One more +1 for me. Really surprised this is still not addressed. Just need it in the FIT file.

I can’t believe how long it takes to implement otherwise standard features elsewhere.

Well, time to revive this topic. I recently upgraded my trainer to a Stages SB20 with power meters on both cranks (even triple when taking the internal power meter into account). It would be great if Zwift can add both power readings in the fit-file. I am writing a small piece of software to display some more power data during my virtual rides, but have no intention to record the data. As mentioned before, it would be great to have all the data (including grades and map) in just one fit-file. I can record the data with another app like Cyclemeter but combining the files is just a hassle, since everything is linked (Zwift/TrainingPeaks/WKO5). So +1!

The can’t even correctly report our CP curve after the ride, what makes you think that they can report L|R balance correctly too?
