I’m new to Swift and have used it a couple of times already, I use a Computrainer & Mac (OS X 10.11.5).
In both rides, at roughly the same power value, i’m experiencing a “harder than usual” resistance in the Zwift app (on a flat terrain) rather than in stand alone ERG mode on the Computrainer (not connected to a computer and using just the head unit).
For example @ 140watt on stand alone ErgMode Computrainer i’m able to keep a more agile cadence, around 85/90rpm, while in Zwift it feels really hard and my cadence drops at 60-70rpm.
If there’s a bit of an incline, like +0.5% the climb feels even harder & cadence drops further.
1% feels like i’m climbing at 10-12% in real road conditions.
Computrainer is calibrated before starting Zwift at around 2.3 pounds… I usually keep the value between 2.00-2.30.
Has anyone experienced the same?
Any words of wisdom to have a more realistic resistance translation?
