Post by manny » Thu Feb 01, 2007 3:26 am

I was woundering if enyone has tested there i-magic to another power device srm or powertap at a setting of 100. If you could list the power readings that would be great.

Just made the RLV ride.. Very tough on Fortius!
My Polar Power meter always showed some 50 watts less than I-magic, even bigger difference in Fortius software, but today it showed nearly 20w more than Fortius ...

So if I rode it on I-magic it would be between 450 - 500w instead of 388w ??

Imagic's power reading can show big differences compared to other power measure readers.

Rok is riding at scalefactor 100. He is competing in the leagues where it's a rule to ride with SF 100.

Jan, you don't do anything wrong. I don't know why it isn't working.

I did the sipscape 10 (16km), which is undulating, with SRMs in the last round of the I-magic league and the I-magic gave me 300W but the SRMs 253W.

This week in the I-magic league on a flat 10 on Capricorn the I-magic gave me 288W but my SRMs 250W.

As it is a race I have it all set up with good tyres and minimal roller resistance.
