Not moving uphill!


I’m new to the zwift world but hoping you can help.

I use a Schwinn AC carbon spin bike for Zwift and have everything (HR, Watts, Cadence) connected. I’m fine on the flat, but when I’m climbing up hill I can’t seem to get any speed… I have tried decreasing my resistance and increasing cadence, as well as increasing my resistance and decreasing cadence, standing up, sitting down … but can’t get it to change. Even when I have increased watts by a lot - it still goes at the same pace … any ideas?

Thanks in advance :slight_smile:

Hi @Lauren_Robinson

Welcome to the forum.

To go up the steep climbs you need to increase your power (watts). If the watts is to low your avatar will stop.

Hi, thanks for this. I did this, actually doubled the watts I was doing previously and it made no difference at all…

Your profile is closed so I could not look at you stats.

What wattage are we talking about. Zwift use wattage to calculate speed.
