The Newton looks strong

Post by Matad1974 »

Good evening, I mounted an old Newton 5 (an old friend of mine gave it to me) on a bike, I did the Calibration tour as explained in the guides and the next day I did a training with repetitions. I have never had a power meter and I wanted to sepaere if the data is correct, to me it seemed too high / good. :o :roll:
I attach the output and calibration file. Thanks to anyone who reads and feels like giving me some advice.
Excuse my English. ;)

You have a very old Newton, about 9 years old!

I used the Analyze/Check Calibration feature of Isaac to correct your ride file. Watts are much more reasonable.

Corrected profile and ride file attached.

First of all, thank you for your availability. So do I have to replace my profile with the one you corrected "Ciro"? Thank you

I think I will have to do the calibration again, the power is still too high.

Do you advise me to do a hard reset first?

At the 35 minute mark, either your mount changes angle or you are riding in a really bumpy patch of road.

Make sure your mount is solidly attached and can't rotate.

Also: your Newton is 9 years old. We've improved a lot since then and it's possible your unit is past its best days.
