I am having real issues with my Wahoo Kickr 5th gen in resistance mode. Everything works fine with ERG, but when I am in resistance mode there is basically no resistance. I had resistance at 100%, whilst pedalling 100rpm in 52x11 and was only producing ~70ish watts. When I am not in a work-out, turning the pedals feels really tough, but as soon as I load up a work-out and start spinning the resistance disappears and its like i’m riding downhill.
I have tried with no improvement:
- turning off and on
- disconnecting and reconnecting
- factory spin-down
- Connecting the trainer with bluetooth and ant+
Unfortunately I don’t have Zwift or another platform to test the trainer on.
Any recommendations on how I can resolve this?
