Does this imply that these are merely default values if the sim software (eg. Zwift, Rouvy etc) doesn't input actual rider and bike mass?

That would be close enough for me, but it seems a bit lame not to have a variable parameter for weight in slope simulation.

That's a bit disappointing if true. Do you happen to know what the default rider/bike weight actually is? I guess that would depend on the trainer model. It's annoying when trainers quote a max...

I've been using the previous Direto X for 2 years now and it has been faultless. So I would imagine the XR is even better and reviews seem to suggest it is an incremental improvement. Accuracy is a...

Honestly, no need to apologise. I thought it was actually a good question. It makes sense that weight is sent over as a direct parameter - as it's so fundamental to any kind of real life slope sim.

That's interesting and has got me thinking. Obviously the physics of accurate slope simulation absolutely does need to take your weight into account. A 10% slope for a 50 kg rider is not the same...

It's the software you are using to control the trainer that knows your weight. So if it is simulating say a 10% slope, the software tells the trainer what resistance that equates to for the input...

The real power limitation is when simulating steep gradients at very low cadence. It might be able to generate 1800W of maximum resistance, but that will be with the flywheel spinning flat out. It...
