ZWIFT Mountain Bike Route and Steering: First Look // Ride-Through

ZWIFT Mountain Bike Route and Steering: First Look // Ride-Through

As seen at Eurobike 2019 – The latest Future Works release from Zwift which adds a mountain bike course along with real-time steering in-game. To get the most out of this you’ll need to ensure your setup allows for handlebar movement and your phone is mounted on the center of your bars.

    I usually don’t comment but the steering was pretty bad, gave it a 2 out of 5 stars. Felt like I was going all over the place and the avatar would go right or left without me steering. After 2nd attempt I have up on the mountain bike

    Was running up and down that track yesterday. Asked me to stay on the road or go off right on a ‘?’ Course with no picture. Decided to take the mystery course. Was the only one on it. Was a nice little tour of the mountain

    haha thats so kwl, should keep one self awake during a long indoor session!

  4. Derek Wildash on March 2, 2020 at 11:45 pm

    Not for me but very cool indeed.

  5. Chris Kunselman on March 2, 2020 at 11:46 pm

    How did you make the steering plate?

  6. Antoine Thisdale on March 2, 2020 at 11:47 pm

    Any way to make this thing "first person"?

  7. Judy Acosta on March 2, 2020 at 11:50 pm

    can you use the Kickr climb for your front wheel instead of "lazy susan"?

  8. James Engelsma on March 2, 2020 at 11:52 pm

    Next up from Wahoo: a trainer that throws you off the bike when you hit a root, called the Wahoo buckr

  9. ludoms100 on March 2, 2020 at 11:52 pm

    Looking foward for a dh version!

  10. DaaaveO1971 on March 2, 2020 at 11:52 pm

    For those who forked out big money for the Tacx Neo bike, you probably can never get the handlebar on that thing to turn. The Wahoo Kickr bike…perhaps.

  11. Ted Kidd on March 2, 2020 at 11:53 pm

    AWESOME! MORE COURSES!
    …AND EBIKE SETTINGS!

    (Out of the seat? lol, mountain bike climbs can be brutal)

    I just delete the comments, sorry about that. I broke my clavicle 3 months ago riding my mtb. I got really excited about the idea of using zwift until I get back to the trails. After hours of research I could’nt find any useful information about the ftp estimative of this trainer. It was the better one that I could afford and I am really curious since I have never done a ftp test with a power metter. But I’m really sorry about the spam, I thought that my comments would just be there and maybe you would see them eventually.
    (And my English is bad, tried to explain myself)

    It’s a cool feature, when i tried it it was way too sensitive, and i did not see any adjustment for that.
    I do like it, but i would also like more offroad tracks like this that are really long, and with the option to ride them without steering, just because it’s not really natural when you don’t have the g-forces applied like on a real ride and it feels wrong.
    I do want the offroad tracks tho, long ones to train for really hard mtb races.

  14. Cory Miller on March 2, 2020 at 11:54 pm

    Lama, if you do another video for the new steering feature/MTB course (I think you alluded to a Kickr Climb attempt in another video), one thing that might be interesting to those of us that haven’t attempted yet is a camera setup over your bars, sync’d with the video of the onscreen course navigation, just to give us a better sense of how much you are turning your bars to ride the course. Just a thought.

  15. skrulle on March 2, 2020 at 11:55 pm

    it does not work on my android phone, must i have ios ?

  16. Jacopo Bonfiglio on March 2, 2020 at 11:55 pm

    Where do you buy the pivot plate ?

  17. Matt Molzan on March 2, 2020 at 11:56 pm

    Send it!!! Thanks for sharing.

  18. oldtwins na on March 2, 2020 at 11:56 pm

    Will there is an auto-eject add-on from Wahoo to throw you off the bike when you take the wrong line and crash ?

  19. Mark Wilkins on March 2, 2020 at 11:56 pm
  20. CX Ruts on March 2, 2020 at 11:58 pm

    They should have CX trails

  21. Will Godding on March 2, 2020 at 11:59 pm

    Do you get the Neo road feel?

  22. nycbliss on March 3, 2020 at 12:00 am

    So… how did you tilt the lazy susan???

  23. Augustin Bossart on March 3, 2020 at 12:00 am

    @Shane, how will this work with kickr climb. I was thinking to buy one but maybe I should wait a bit?

  24. Kevin M on March 3, 2020 at 12:07 am

    The smile on his face isn’t due to Zwift. What you’re witnessing is a road biker realizing how much more fun and interesting mountain biking is… hang loose, homies.

  25. Adam Mills on March 3, 2020 at 12:08 am

    If I keep going up the Alpe in training mode of say 150 w would the altitude still count towards the Tron bike unlock? Because if it does then you are cheating & May as well be wright doping right?

  26. Aldous Yelxuh on March 3, 2020 at 12:08 am

    so weird that Zwift can be so far along in this development but not be able to support 18" flywheels for stationary bikes. I feel ignored.

  27. Andreas Otten on March 3, 2020 at 12:08 am

    Great Vid, but in my opinion:
    steering is for outside

  28. Chris Blanchard on March 3, 2020 at 12:09 am

    Shane is bald but his zwift avatar has more hair then ZZ Top. lol

  29. A. Gees on March 3, 2020 at 12:10 am

    I did 9/10 stars and didnt became the mtb😭

  30. Jeff Pedals on March 3, 2020 at 12:11 am

    What if we don’t want to do the turning …can we still ride the old way?

  31. Sworksfsr on March 3, 2020 at 12:14 am

    Shane- looking for your thoughts. I’m a mountain biker and had a Kickr and Trainer road. I didn’t find any routines that simulated mountain biking very well, and found indoor training boring. As Zwift adds more courses do you think its a good fit for a mountain biker in the winter? Which trainer would you pair it with? I’m hoping Zwift might make it more engaging.

  32. Chief_ Trukalot on March 3, 2020 at 12:15 am

    And why didnt we use a mtb bike for this video? I’ve scoured over youtube and cant find one mtb paired to a turbo trainer??? I cant be the only guy who can only afford one bike lol

  33. Alfred Ristan on March 3, 2020 at 12:15 am

    WOW ! This is cool .

  34. Linus Jansson on March 3, 2020 at 12:16 am

    Is it just me who wonders where zwift will be in 10 years?

  35. Max Schmidt on March 3, 2020 at 12:18 am

    Am I dreaming?

  36. charliedontsurf79 on March 3, 2020 at 12:19 am

    Didi not work for me. Using the same quad lock mount in the same position as the Lama, bike on a kinetic turntable ring, companion app running on an android phone paired with zwift, and still no steering. Zwift updated, obviously

  37. Zach Taylor on March 3, 2020 at 12:25 am

    The future of NICA HS MTB racing..no programmable manuals and jumping coming soon in 2025

  38. Loam Zone on March 3, 2020 at 12:25 am

    I don’t get it why not just ride your bike outside 🤔

  39. Chris N on March 3, 2020 at 12:25 am

    This is pretty cool! If you have a 3d TV, you can use the 2d to 3d conversion feature for extra immersion.

  40. Melbourne Cycling Segments on March 3, 2020 at 12:26 am

    Now I’ve got an excuse to buy that mountain bike. Sweet!

  41. Darth Father on March 3, 2020 at 12:26 am

    This is getting so stupid haha, just get MTB and go outside….

  42. Gee Tee on March 3, 2020 at 12:26 am

    Gonna be pedal strike crazy when all the Zwift roadies try MTBing for the first time! Cool update to the game.

  43. Chuck Young on March 3, 2020 at 12:26 am

    Gday, Thanks for the turn by turn commentary on the MTB steering option and trail. Cheers!

  44. Ameurstihn on March 3, 2020 at 12:28 am

    This should be called E-XC.

  45. Jason Giordano on March 3, 2020 at 12:28 am

    Another lap?? Good for you Lama!!

  46. Keith Allen on March 3, 2020 at 12:33 am

    First go today and got the Mtb on my second go. Love the steering. I have made a swivel plate out of a car cam belt tensioner bearing with plates welded to it . One lower leg has a bolt the change the angle . 16 inch wood top plate with Tacx wheel holder mounted in the centre with one screw. Lucky it even seems to self centre fairly well. After setting the angle of the turn plate there seem no movement at the back of the bike on the trainer. I am planning to leave the turn plate on my setup full time as I like the extra movement on the bike even just riding on the unsteered Zwift.

  47. kmancrx on March 3, 2020 at 12:34 am

    Ermagerd those watts

  48. Grzegorz Ciolkowski on March 3, 2020 at 12:39 am

    Shane in action, taking mountain bike route with road bike 😉 Nice, very, very nice 🙂

  49. Adamn676 on March 3, 2020 at 12:41 am

    Please provide us with a how to build this "lazy susan" plattform … this really troubles me and sooooo many others!

  50. dupon davignon on March 3, 2020 at 12:41 am

    12:23 : Distracted at first, I started to sweat severely when I saw the counter displaying 15’31" still at that point of the ride (vs the necessary finish time off 12’30" to get the MTB). Knowing that Lama was already drooling a bit to keep up with this pace.
