Turn Off "Close the Gap" Message


(James Blake) #1

I would like to be able to turn off this message. On busy courses (Innsbruk), that message is constantly popping up, and can be pretty distracting.

If you can’t turn it off, then make it more context specific. For example, slogging up a 10% grade at 5 mph, I doubt I need to close the gap. The same could be said for when a rider goes by 5-10 mph faster, or you pass someone that’s going slower.

Thanks for listening.

A workaround is to use the TT bike as it doesn’t benefit from the draft AFAIK.

I think that is true and is a good workaround but it also limits you from certain events.
I tend not to change my kit or bike and would forget to do so if I was doing a race where it was not allowed

Yes please. Give us an option - like the blurred vision effect option.

Or replace the giant “Close the Gap” message and graphic with something less obtrusive - perhaps a Draft Effect bar.

I think the main problem is the size of the thing. It just made half the size or as some sort of sliding bar would me much nicer.

A drafting effect bar is a great idea! It would be awesome to see how many watts one is saving by drafting.
