Erg mode with the Direto

Postby Chris » Wed Nov 29, 2017 9:28 pm


I've just bought a Direto and I'm using it with zwift at the moment.
My problem is that in erg mode the power fluctuates quite a lot.
I did some intervals earlier that were supposed to be 215 Watts @95 rpm but although I kept the cadence as close as I could the power was varying between 190 and 240 watts. Is this normal?

Zwift is running on an iPad and connected to the Direto by Bluetooth.

Thanks for your help

Hi Chris

We've been told that Zwift had some problems with bluetooth.
Contact their customer care and ask about this issue.

Also increase the power smoothing inside the elite app to 10s when doing erg. It will feel like a regular trainer.

Switch the power smoothing back to two for everything else.
