Zwift Compatibility

How It Works

Zwift is a powerful cycle training application that turns your real-world effort into speed in a digital environment. Your power is measured by the watts you produce, and this is used to move you forward through a 3D environment.

To add extra realism your speed is adjusted for your height, weight and the road gradient you’re racing or training on, you even get credit for drafting.

We have a Zwift guide where you can learn more about the app and how you can use it to improve your fitness and performance.


Supported Trainers

Zwift is compatible with a wide range of turbo trainers, indoor bikes and rollers.

Smart Turbo Trainers

Smart turbo trainers can connect to Zwift wirelessly via ANT+ on Bluetooth Smart (BLE). Zwift will then automatically change the resistance of your turbo trainer to match the terrain and conditions of the virtual route you’re riding. Using Zwift with a smart trainer gives you the most immersive cycling experience.

Classic Turbo Trainers

Classic trainers do not have the ability to communicate with ANT+ or BLE wirelessly to send your power data to Zwift. However, you can use a compatible speed/cadence sensor or power meter to connect to Zwift. Also, some manufacturers provide their own Zwift compatible sensors.

When using a speed/cadence sensor, Zwift will translate the speed from your trainer into power (watts) using a virtual power curve. Zwift have tested all the supported trainers below to estimate the watts needed for speed-based power. These sensors and meters connect wirelessly via ANT+ or BLE.

Some of the turbo trainers below are ‘zPower’ enabled. ZPower is Zwift’s own virtual power curve that accounts for spikes in power output from sudden accelerations, so you get a more responsive experience, rather than a linear virtual power curve.

Indoor Bikes

Many Indoor Bikes have ANT+ or BLE connectivity which are Zwift compatible.

CycleOps

Rollers

You can use any cycling rollers with Zwift when you have equipped a supported power meter to your bike. Smart rollers also have access to automatic resistance control.

All Makes/Models

Supported Connectivity

Zwift uses industry standard wireless protocols to connect to your devices.

ANT+

ANT+ is a wireless technology that allows your turbo trainer, cycling sensors, power meters and tech to communicate with each other.

Bluetooth Smart (BLE)

BLE is a lets your devices communicate wirelessly with each other with considerably reduced power consumption. BLE runs natively on most mobile and desktop operating systems.
