Turbo Trainer Max Watts?

It seems my Turbo Trainer ‘Minora BD60’ and it will max out at 422 WATTS…is this right?

Are you using a power meter or zPower?  I have a power meter with a CycleOps Fluid, and I’ve gotten up to 1200 watts.  It’s pretty hard to do it, but then it’s hard to do it IRL too.

I’ve found that making sure the roller wheel is firmly against the tire and the tire is pumped to normal riding pressure helps.  The bolt to tighten the roller to the wheel on the CycleOps starts clicking when it’s tight enough.
