FTP

FTP - Functional Threshold Power. It represents your ability to sustain the highest possible power output over 60 minutes. We calculate the FTP as 95% average power of 20 minutes.

 

Where to find and how does it work

The test consists of 3 main parts: WARM-UP, MAIN TEST and COOLDOWN.

Click on the WORKOUT feature in the App.

Select the FTP TESTS from the MENU.

You are required to enter your estimated FTP. If you are not sure, you can start with 200W. We add 5% to your entered value and that becomes your target power.

If this is too hard, after you rest, restart the test and lower the value accordingly. The power value represents a power output you should be able to sustain for 1 hour even though the test itself only lasts 20 minutes.

You can change the resistance to what suits you. The graph will adjust as you change the power. You can also skip the WARM-UP and COOLDOWN on the middle right side, whenever you feel ready for the test. The main test cannot be skipped or paused.

Changing the power in the main test will directly affect the final output.

You will get your new FTP value in the workout summary after the FTP test.

*for exercise: I'm a man and my weight is 80kg (176lbr), my performance is 3 ( I choose 2,80 ).
I have to count 2,80 * 80 = 224. It means I will enter the FTP target as 224W.
