There was once a time where indoor cycle training consisted of a brick wall and a noisy turbo trainer. Counting every miles while desperately trying to distract yourself from the monotony of turning pedals. This is now a feature of the past.
Where cyclists might previously have whittled away hours on a turbo trainer until they couldn’t suffer the boredom any longer, or complete short, sharp interval sessions, Zwift is a turbo trainer ‘game’ designed to make indoor training both fun and rewarding, so you can be the best cyclist possible when it comes to crunch time on the road.
What is Zwift?
Ultimately, Zwift is for all types of cyclist, from newbies looking to improve their fitness, to professionals winning Paris-Roubaix, via sportive riders training for mountainous events and amateur racers. According to Zwift, the platform helps users reach their fitness goal, whatever it may be, and that means it can do a job for everyone.
That’s where Zwift comes in. Fundamentally, the platform adds a layer of interactivity that can help alleviate that boredom when riding on a turbo trainer. Featuring a KOM, Sprint & Overall jersey’s there is always something to play for! All set in a virtual world, however your local climb may not be so many miles away, featuring the UCI Course, Box Hill and New York – We can travel the world, right from our very own homes.
Where do I start?
In terms of indoor bike trainers, for the ultimate experience, a smart trainer is ideal. Smart trainers such as the Tacx Neo & Cycleops Hammer both have a built-in power meter and variable resistance. The variable resistance comes in handy on Zwift, in short this means that when you climb up hill in the virtual world the trainer will adjust accordingly.
Alternatively our ‘Wheel-On’ Trainers offer an equally as intense experience. Connect your ANT + Speed and Cadence sensors and you are away!
