Hi @Youssef_Raouf

Welcome to the forum,

You wheel speed on your cycling computer will not match you speed in zwift.

Zwift use a speed power curve to calculate the in game power . So the faster the wheel spin the more power. Zwift then use that power to calculate your speed taking your weight, height and road profile into account.

A typical power curve look like this.

I am also going to post this:

Zwift takes the wheel speed broadcast by your speed sensor and the power curve of the trainer you select on the Pairing Screen and converts that to virtual watts. With those watts, the weight entered, height entered, in-game bike used, in-game drafting (Tri and TT bikes get no drafting boost), in-game wheel set, in-game road surface, and in-game virtual elevation changes your in-game speed is determined.
