Does anyone have any actual experience with ‘rocker plates’ on Zwift? Essentially they are a large platform on top of which you put your trainer, which allows the trainer to ‘bob’ side-to-side and sometimes forward and back slightly. The list of benefits (and drawbacks/sceptics!) are legion but I’m just wondering if anyone here has had a go with them on Zwift?
The main things I’m wondering are:
Do they affect your power noticeably on the screen (i.e. loss from the squishing vs increase from more muscle groups being employed)?
Do they cause any noticeable lag or fluctuations for intervals/ERG (e.g. when the trainer adds sudden HIIT resistance and you wind up, is your response dampened by the rocking)? Basically, if you’re doing 30sec on/off HIT, does this become impossible to get the stars because of lag.
