Hi, The problem I have is that my Kickr Core appears to be reading around 10-20W less than my Garmin vector 3 pedals. This is across the power range (and between bikes). Most of the time I solve this by using power match and letting the Vector 3 be the guide by which Trainer Road adjusts the power. The power match is set to “Automatic”. Reading the garmin pedals on my garmin device and the kickr power on a elemnt, there is this clear difference. TR is using the Vector 3 readings in the session. If I use the Kickr Core power, it requires a noticably higher effort to achieve the same power level.
However I want to occasionally use the Kickr core WITHOUT the V3 pedals (and therefore no power match).
(I have had a look through the forum, but could not find quite the same question - It might be there but I have missed it).
What is the best way to do this?
- Change my FTP (This seems a bit drastic and philosophically wrong)
- Do the adjustment by changing the effort level of the session (ie running at, say, 95% rather than 100%)
- A third option I have not spotted yet? ie is there a way to frig the effective kickr core power?
I have discussed the problem with Wahoo and they say it is all down to drive train losses. However, I can feel a noticable difference between the two settings, the V3 pedals and the kickr power, especially at higher levels and around FTP/threshold.
Hence my question - advice appreciated please.
