New user - barely moving

Hi all,

I bought the Elite Novo Smart Turbo Trainer, i’ve set it all up and downloaded zwift.

As soon as I launch the app and connect everything, i’m taken to Watopia. I start pedaling but i’m really just crawling. I am barely overtaking the runners. Everyone else is zooming past me.

Any ideas what I may have done wrong?


Hi @Kieran_Ball, what kind of bike do you have on the trainer and is it installed correctly? This trainer has magnetic resistance correct, with a lever that can change resistance with a few different difficulty settings?


Thanks for your help. A calibration helped somewhat but the main issue was naivety and getting used to stationary cycling. After a couple of kms under my belt it all works fine.
