What is Zwift?

Zwift is an online, immersive, 3D gaming and fitness experience created for cyclists. Your digital destination for fitness, fun, and adventure.

Join the world's largest cycling community making fitness social. Stay motivated, challenge yourself, and have fun with group rides for all abilities. Push yourself to train hard and achieve your goals with motivating visual cues and community support.

Zwift translates your real world effort into speed in the digital one. Your power, measured by the watts you produce, propels you through the digital landscape.

Just like the real world, your speed is adjusted for your height, weight and the road gradient. We even give you credit for drafting.




How do I play Zwift?


 

READY

Put your road, mountain or tri-bike on an indoor trainer. Smart trainers, classic trainers or rollers.

 

SET

Zwift supports ANT+ and BLE to connect your trainer, also power meters, speed & cadence sensors and heart rate monitors.

ANT+

The USB ANT+ stick wirelessly connects your devices to Zwift. We recommend using a USB extension cable to place the ANT+ stick close to your devices and prevent signal drops.

BLUETOOTH

Zwift connects to your (BLE) enabled devices through the Zwift Mobile Link companion app on your phone. Make sure that your phone is on the same Wifi network as your computer.

 

ZWIFT

Zwift supports ANT+ and BLE to connect your trainer, also power meters, speed & cadence sensors and heart rate monitors.

SPEED & CADENCE SENSORS

A speed and cadence sensor is the perfect companion to a classic trainer. Cadence sensors are also an inexpensive and useful pair with smart trainers that don't offer accurate cadence.

HEART RATE MONITORS

Monitoring your heart rate is an important part of any training program. Zwift supports all models on the market that connect via ANT+ or Bluetooth Smart (BLE) using open standards.
