Zwift Release 1.59 & Upcoming Events

Here is what you can expect in the upcoming release and what events are on the horizon. The release is expected to go live Tuesday, February 20th at approximately 16:00 UTC. This release will be a rolling release, meaning we will scale up the percentage of people with the release over a few days to minimize bugs or crashes. Below you will find the updates included in this release.


THIS INFORMATION UNDER EMBARGO UNTIL February 20th, 16:00 UTC / 11:00 AM EST / 9:00 AM MST / 8:00 AM PST.

  • Player Highlight is rolling out on Mac, PC, iOS and Apple TV! A halo will appear around your avatar when in a large crowd so you don't get lost in the pack. This effect can also be seen on ride leaders, those being fan viewed, and friends (up to 5 at a time) you may come across in the world. This WILL roll out separate from the release but during the 1.59 release window.
  • When signing up for an event in Zwift, the event's route name is now displayed in the sidebar.
  • When riding in small RoboPacer groups, the area in which Drops multipliers are in effect has been increased.
  • When riding in a RoboPacer group, you now have a longer period of time to re-join the group before losing your Drops multiplier.
  • Improved body shape illustrations when selecting a body type in the Garage.
  • Fixed an issue where the color selector would not appear when customizing your avatar’s hair, body, and facial hair.
  • Fixed an issue where some running shirts did not appear properly on smaller body types.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause seals to float in midair on the Beach Island Loop route in Watopia.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause the Tacx Neo Road Feel setting to appear for devices that don't support this feature.
  • Fixed an issue that could potentially cause a "Did Not Finish" result to incorrectly be displayed in the Zwift activity feed after completing a race event.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause the distant mountains in Innsbruck to appear to wiggle on the horizon.
