Power drops during intervals

Post by Louisd » Mon Jun 04, 2018 2:08 pm

Hello-I’ve been seeing power drops during interval sessions when riding on my Vortex Smart. They seem to happen in the latter stages of the interval set- maybe halfway through the fourth interval in the set of five for example. I use erg mode in trainerroad , so I have to try to bring the power back up by shifting into a harder gear and or raising my cadence. I am wondering if this is due to heat build up in my vortex smart. My set up is trainerroad on a desktop communicating to the Tax via ant+, a Garman 520, and power tap P1 pedals. I have tried to eliminate all interference in the room where I am working out, have the latest software and firmware on all devices, and do spin down calibrations on all devices after a 5 minute warm up every ride. Has anyone else experienced this? Thanks. Ps - I tried using the search function on this form, but for some reason it’s telling me the server is too busy.
