I’ve been having some problems with my Elite Direto not ramping up quickly enough. Today, I did Jepson which is 4x8-minute intervals between 95-99% FTP including 3x5-second sprints at 150% FTP. The first problem was with the 5 sec sprints at 150%. I know they’ve talked about slow ramping up to high sprints not being a huge deal, but looking over my workout, my peak power for those sprints were around 20-30W low for every sprint. There are 12 sprints total and I had 3 where I actually even hit the target, and that was a 1 sec peak that hit it and went back down. Most were 2-3 seconds around 20-30W low, some as low as 50W lower than the target. So I felt like they weren’t doing anything.
The second part that’s bothering me is thee ramping up to threshold. Going from the recovery valley up to the threshold interval took between 15-20 seconds to hit the target power. That seems really slow to me. I maintained my cadence, it just took forever to ramp up to the target power. Is there anything I can do to speed this up?
