I’ve been using TR now for around a year - my setup has always been a single power meter (Wahoo Kickr Core) - this has always been my single version of the truth.
I’v recently, in last month, purchased the Assioma UNO pedal so I can start training to power outdoors as well as in. As a 'sense check ’ I wanted to see how close the two power meters were, so after some googling I transferred the pedals to my bike sat on the kickr - I’ve then done the following;
- Connected the UNO pedal to my Wahoo Element Bolt
- Connected the TR App (on iphone) to the Kickr Core
I calibrated both the Kickr and UNO pedals - the pedals I used the Favero app first, but the also the Wahoo Element head unit and I’ve calibrated the kickr with the Wahoo app and also the TR app.
I made sure both the TR app and Bolt showed 3sec power and also double checked ERG mode smoothing was off in the wahoo app. I selected an endurance workout and started the ride - it took me a few mins to realise the bolt had connect to the kickr and was reporting those numbers, so I quickly removed that from the bolt and it reverted back to the connected UNO.
I noticed the UNO numbers were jumping around (a lot - often jumping up 20/30 watts then back down) - the kickr seemed far more stable on the TR app.
I downloaded both the .fit files after and uploaded them to the DCR analyser tool - you can see where the kickr was connected to both as they are almost inline for the first couple of mins, but once the UNO’s started to record on the bolt you can see the huge deviation away from the kickr - it just seems so far off…does this look ‘right’ and can anyone offer up an explanation as they seem so far apart - I expected to see some variance, but this seems totally wrong to me?
This is the full ride;
First 10 mins after the UNO started to record;
5 min section towards the end where things started to improve;
Any advise would be much appreciated.
Ideally I want to start using the UNO to record all my indoor sessions but want to be confident (to a degree) there isn’t any issue with them.
