Occasionally, after completing a workout in Zwift, I like to continue the ride on course. After I ‘ok’ out of the workout summary, I remain on course but I have no resistance from my Kickr Core. This doesn’t happen every time, but seemingly only sometimes. It is as if the trainer switches out of Erg, but somehow is not getting resistance information from Zwift. I have tried un-pairing and re-pairing the trainer, and it doesn’t help, I also sometimes then run into that weird pairing loop bug that I have seen posted here. At one point doing this, the trainers resistance went so high that I couldn’t turn over the cranks, and un-pairing/re-pairing just removed all resistance again.
No, nothing else is pairing with my kickr, i just have the Zwift companion running on my phone (I use ATV for zwift). Obviously, my kickr climb isn’t working when this happens either.
Yes, latest firmware. Rode yesterday, finished a workout and didn’t have the problem, although when I paused the workout during the warmup to grab a sweatband, which I had forgotten, ERG mode didn’t seem to be working and I was only putting out about half the wattage as was required. Had to quit the workout, restart zwift, un- and re-plug in the kickr core, and it finally worked again. I just wish all this equipment wasn’t so buggy, my Kickr Climb only works about half of the time.
I stopped using workouts a couple of years ago because it would take days for my KiKr Snap to return to normal mode when free-riding. I don’t do a lot of training workouts, but, I’d like to be able to do some once in awhile, so, if there’s a solution to this I also would like to know.
I checked this morning and yes, the Viiiiva is running the latest firmware.
I am not sure what the Viiiiva’s default name was when I first installed it, so I cannot reset the name back to factory unless there is a way of fully resetting the HRM, which doesn’t seem to be mentioned in the HRM manual.
Two training rides in a row now the ERG mode seems to be switching back to controlled resistance after the ride, so maybe it seems to be fixed. I did notice a prompt from the ATV the other day that my HRM had been disconnected and needed to be re-paired, not sure if this was something done by one of you or not…
