Vortex Smart Trainer road FTP Test

Post by iradu » Mon Nov 27, 2017 9:23 pm

Hello,

I'm a new user in the home training world. I've a Vortex Smart and I'm using Trainer Road as application. I've tried FTP Test (20 min and also 8 min). Before the test interval looks like the vortex works in resistance mode (the target power is ignored), but during the test interval the vortex resistance become harder. See the attached file. Is it normal? Any advice ?

Trainer Road settings: erg mode / PowerMatch Auto
S7 edge (ANT+ or Blue is the same).
HR --- blue
cadence sensor --- blue

Thank you for your time!

Not sure I follow as riding above FTP is typically what an FTP test is intended to do. Did you read TR's support page comparing the 20-minute and 8-minutes tests?
