Zwift-Wahoo Kickr resistance dropped considerably but Zwift reading went to 2000w!

(Paul Graham) #1

Strange thing today - On the climb up Watopia Mountain my Wahoo Kickr’s resistance dropped suddenly and considerably but the reading on-screen was displaying massive wattage - 1200-2000 watts! This only happened for a few seconds but it did take me by surprise.

As you can imagine I’d like to know what happened so I downloaded the .fit file converted it to .csv and took a look at the max wattage readings.

Interestingly, I notice each of the error data lines containing the max wattage data has what looks to be random dates at the beginning of the lines.

Can anyone take a look at the attached sample and work out what’s happening?
