Please apologize for my english
I'm new to home trainer and therefore to direto xr that I acquired a few days ago. So I'm not able to compare to others ERG mode behaviours.
That's why I'm writting in this post to get advices from you with more experience on HT.
My direto XR is in version 073 already.
From now on, I only activated rouvy 30 days trial so I'm not able to compare with Swift.
Therefore I made the test recommanded by rouvy and send them the results : https://support.rouvy.com/s/article/The-Trainer-Resistance-Seems-To-Be-Wrong?language=en_US
I post you an image of the excel graph I made to let you tell what you think of power variations which seem quite big to me. FYI I was using 34/21 gear for the test I think. That's the result :
The test was like this : from second 15s to 195s, 1 minute at power 150/200/250W and from seconds 285 to 465s 1 minute at slope 0/3/6 %. What do you think ? Should I create a ticket to elite too, or the results seem quite good to you ?
Also a lot of you are talking about smoothing calibration ? I didn't find this option on rouvy ? Is it only on swift ? Therefore I can't tell you on which smoothing value was made the test.
Thanks in advance for your answers,
What strikes me here in your graph is that (apart from the variation in the power) the actual response to the power step is rather quick. I mean for example the step from 150 -> 200 w. You see a respons within seconds. That is not what I experience using ERG mode. So I looked up your Rouvy link. Do I understand correctly that you make the power adjustment yourself? I mean after 1 minute at 150w, you manually set the requested power to 200 using the Rouvy application right?
