ROUVY - Time Trial vs. Training

Users can choose between Training Mode and Time Trial Mode, and both of these options have different specifications. Below is the screen showing how to select the mode.


Time Trial

Users are competing against the clock to secure the fastest time. It can be in the same route or event, or as an individual or in a  group competing against the clock.

Works on a principal basis of a “real race”. You are prevented from pausing or moving your position during the ride. You have to ride the route to the end of the activity. When you finish it successfully, the app saves it to all your personal records in your activities in your diary and to the leaderboard, where it is counted on the record list of the particular route and also if partaking in a career where it will also (please note, Rouvy cycling career was postponed until January 2022).

Training Mode is there to improve your training on a particular route. For example, you could try a part of the route or complete a long route you have chosen to come back to in order to complete it finally. In training mode, you can move your position and pause it. When you finish, the activity is available and saved in your training diary, but without a personal record on the leaderboard. This means that the activity is not counted toward the route record list and to your career.

Training Mode is great for riding certain sections repeatedly. For example, your favorite hill or special endurance training stretch. In training mode, you can change the level of reality - simply go to Settings > Reality level.

The "Reality level" is a tool, which helps you to set up the level of true load, but only in training mode. The default is 100%, which is the real load. If you want a lower load, you can set it to less than 100%. Of course, if you want a higher load, you can set it to more than 100%. With 150% of reality level, you will get one and half the higher load, and of course, with 50%, you will get twice the lower.
