I recently (April '23) bought a Zwift Hub trainer, after having spent 3 years on a Tacx Flux S Smart T2900S.
And I must say that I’m pretty disappointed.
First, the Zwift Hub does not properly work on apps other than Zwift (for instance Tacx Desktop App, where I have saved many workouts). Ok, I know that this is not really Zwift’s fault.
But when using it in Zwift, I found it quite disappointing. I used it at Alpe du Zwift and I found its behavior quite “jerky”. I mean, it’s like the home trainer is suddenly stuck when the slope rapidly changes (as it is sometimes the case on Alpe where the transition from 3% to 12% are rapid). The feeling is pretty irrealistic and anoying. The resistance control is clearly much less smooth than what I was used to on my Tacx trainer. FYI, I use the maximum difficulty resistance.
Other point, I found the watts quite different than what I was used to on Tacx. Of course, I calibrated the trainer (twice to be accurate) but I did not change anything.
Do you have some similar feedbacks or suggestions? To be honest, I’m about to sell it and go back to my good old Tacx Trainer…
