Hey! FYI - Erg mode works on my Suito (I have tried this on Zwift) However it doesn’t track true to the power target, but I did feel the resistance kick in as my targets increased.
I sent something to Elite (cant find what I asked now) but this was their response.
Thank you for getting in touch with us.
Concerning your request:
Concerning power fluctuations in erg mode:
If you find variations of 10-20W, this is absolutely normal as the speed is not perfectly constant during training but fluctuates slightly (e.g. from 20km / h to 21kmh at 19.5km / h and this behavior generates these small power oscillations.
A variation between 10-25 W is also detected by professional cyclists.
Suito hometrainer uses a particularly precise calculation to show power data.
Although the software imposes constant power, pedaling is in fact never perfectly uniform, therefore power peaks are created, detected from the trainer and shown on the screen.
The trainer automatically tries to adapt to pedaling to keep the power set within the set standard but these oscillations are absolutely normal and are detected by Suito since the calculation of the power value is much more accurate than with base hometrainer which do not consider the pedaling inertia.
As refer please take note that even DC Rainmaker has the same fluctuation: https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2019/07/hands-on-elites-new-799-suito-smart-trainer-with-cassette.html
This fluctuation is not an issue but the consequence of the high precision of the trainer
