Is this normal?


I am using ERG mode and power smoothing on an Elite Drivo 2. The power seems way more spiky than anything I’ve seen in this forum. Is this usual?


That is perfectly normal. What you often see is graphs from people with wahoo trainers that have ERG Smoothing turned on. Whereas the Suf smoothing just smooths the displayed watts, wahoo smoothing smooths the data before broadcasting. So you get falsely smooth data recorded.

It makes no difference to the actual function as what you have in your graph is actually what’s happening.


Awesome. Thanks. That’s really good to know.

It seems to be a bit easier to get up to the required power if I hit the right cadence just as the power/cadence shifts up. Then I get a smoother transition and a bit smoother line.


Yeah, especially on more sizeable lower changes I try to be “at” the right cadence by the time the change happens so generally spin up about a second before.


I just wanted to hijack this post because I appear to have a similar problem and just wondered if exactly the same of something different? If I do dramatic changes (increase) in cadence on my Drivo 2 then the power really spikes and takes a really long time to come back down to the required level shown in the Suffefest App, probably 15 to 25 secs. Is this the same (and nothing to worry about) or something different? Thanks

That sounds very slow to respond. My Elite Direto X spikes the power when rapidly increasing cadence, but only for a few seconds before correcting the power back down to the ERG target. Certainly not 15-25 seconds. More like 5 seconds or less

Welcome to the coommunity!!! @discobot told me to say that.


Hi! To find out what I can do, say @discobot display help.
