Vote 10-15%watt increase after changing to direct drive roller?


Today i changed from an Elite Qubo Digital Smart B+ (wheel roller) to a Wahoo Kickr Core
Going straight into z5 intervals, i noticed i had to bump up the watts from 100->110%

This leaves me wondering… is it really possible the old roller was that unprecise? Or could something be wrong on my Kickr Core.

Has anyone else experienced the same?

Firstly, welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

A 10% variance is easily possible to be honest, that’s about what I got when I went from my KK Road Machine with virtual power to my power meter. Since upgrading to a KICKR that agrees really well with my power meter.


Thanks for the warm welcome :slight_smile:

Ok, wow! Glad to hear that A) probably nothing is wrong with my trainer, and B) i am better shape than i first believed!
