I was on one AR route and it happened at top of a climb. 8% went to what felt like 2 or 3%. It didnt last long so thought it maybe a glitch with that route. But it happened again on a different one and ended up cancelling the ride as it was supposed to be 10% and felt like nothing. Was wondering if it was a software or hardware problem. Using a cycleops magnus and linked to my phone via bluetooth. Was on a challenge route so wasnt happy having to abort but didnt want to go on putting out less than 200w flying up a 10% climb.
I've never run into anything like that with my Kickr Snap. 10 percent climbs never ever feel like 2 or 3%. My only complaint is that there is a bit of a lag, which I suspect has more to do with the recording equipment used by the contributor, so that the top of the gradient doesn't appear until I'm maybe 50 yards (or even more) beyond the peak of the hill as seen on the video. But some routes don't have much of that problem.
