    Hello,

    Your Kinetic Road Machine has the inRide module, doesn't it?
    If so, this one is clearly more accurate than a speed/cadence sensor as it provides directly the WATTS.
    Adding power curves on this model wouldn't be useful so.
    Best regards,
    Cedric.

    I haven't got a Kinetic Road Machine - just a really old fluid trainer and speed/cadence sensors. What I want is the option of using the sensors with a generic fluid trainer, rather than a generic 5 level trainer. I'm just saying you could take advantage of the published power curve information here: https://www.kurtkinetic.com/kinetic-power-tech Or some other model the power curve info is available for. It wouldn't be totally accurate but at least consistent. Other apps allow you to do this - see https://support.trainerroad.com/hc/en-us/articles/115002491883-VirtualPower-What-if-my-trainer-isn-t-supported-.

    Hello,

    Which trainer have you got?
    Did you try to add it as a fluid trainer from the same brand in Kinomap? 
    We have fluid trainers curves provided by Elite or Tacx for example.
    Best regards,
    Cedric

    Hi Cedric,

    We sorted this out via email. But just in case anyone is interested I successfully added the Elite Elastogel Fluid Trainer - this has the same type as cadence/speed sensor as the Wahoo Blue SC so I was able to add it. The Kinetic trainer doesn't have the same kind of sensor I guess, so I couldn't add it. Anyway, the Elite was a better power curve option. Kinomap does offer what I was looking for and with Cedric's help I sorted it out. Thanks.
