Pedal Stoke TIming in Zwift vs Real Life


I don’t use Zwift yet as I’m waiting for my trainer to arrive but I am curious if the program mimics every pedal stroke. Say if you are pedaling and your left foot is in the 6 o’clock position, does your Zwift avatar have its left foot in the 6 o’clock position at the same time as well?


No, but i highly doubt you will even notice. Also, you can change the camera to 1st person instead of 3rd person and you will not even see yourself.

Your avatar’s legs will spin at the same speed via your cadence sensor, but the exact position won’t be mimicked. It wouldn’t really make any difference if it was though…
