A new start-up company called Zwift Beta, announced the launch of its virtual, indoor training system this week.
The announcement was made simultaneously at Rapha Cycle Clubs in London, New York and San Francisco.
Here’s a ditty about their new product.
Zwift is an online community of like minded athletes united in the pursuit of a better indoor training experience. Created by cyclists for cyclists, Zwift brings the things we love about outdoor cycling indoors and adds a dose of fun. Yes fun!
How do we do it? We start with the best of massive, multiplayer video game technology – our “Zengine” – add in a little voice communication and a whole lot of math. Zwift works across multiple platforms seamlessly connecting to all your existing devices wirelessly via ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart protocols.
The result? An engaging indoor cycling experience that motivates and entertains. But don’t take our word for it – request an invite today.
Supported Trainers SMART TRAINERS electronically controlled
Smart trainers add an extra dimension to your Zwift experience as we can control them to simulate changing environmental conditions like road terrain, wind, and drafting.
DUMB TRAINERS manual or no resistance control
You can use virtually any trainer with Zwift as long as you have a device that broadcasts power. We realize that power meters can be prohibitive so we’re working hard in the lab to run the most popular dumb trainer models through our special profiler to ensure you get all the benefits of acceleration with our virtual power curve (VPC). Yep – virtual power from a dumb trainer means all you need is an ANT+ speed sensor.
