Handicap mode makes it possible for a class with a ride range of abilities to participate in a competition with more of a level playing field. By using handicap mode, all class participants are given a virtual FTP and their output will be based on % of their actual FTP. This allows users to effectively compete based on % of FTP, rather than raw power outfit.
To turn on handicap mode:
- Load a competition by clicking on ADD PROFILE/ROUTE
- Click the HCP icon
Enter an FTP value or pick from Normal/Fast/Super Fast
- Note that if your profile contains hills, the higher the FTP, the faster the class participants will climb
