Power Graphs

Postby nseries11 » Sat Jan 06, 2018 6:00 am

I recently bought a Direto and performed a ramp test on it. Last year I did the same test but on a Wahoo Kickr. When I compared the power graphs I noticed the Direto fluctuates much more than the Kickr. In the end the wattage is within a couple watts of the target set but riding at a steady cadence I notice my wattage fluctuates quite a bit. I Included a screenshot of both graphs to show what I'm talking about. I performed both of these in Zwift. Would increasing the power smoothing in the my E-Training app make a difference (currently it is set at 3)?

Direto is very precise in reading power, so you'll see all the fluctuations (that are really there).
If you increase the power smoothing, you'll get a more stable value - but of course it will be less precise.
