I used Zwift while on riding on rollers. I found that my speed displayed in Zwift was quite different from what my bike computer was showing. The speeds matched best at a 2% incline. My Zwift average was easily 4mph higher, and my Max speed was 14.3mph higher!
Jason K. from Zwift replied with this comment: “Speed in Zwift is calculated based on watts, so any other factors, such as speed, aren’t considered relevant in translating your performance into Zwift.”
I have a resistance drum, and my speed on the rollers is close to what I see when riding on the road.
Anyone else using rollers?
How well does the speed data match up while on a trainer, or exercise bike?
Overall Zwift worked great, and time flew by.
Thank you for any feedback you have,
