Zwift Release 1.60 & 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, March 5th 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.



  • Ride On Bombs have a new visual effect. To send a Ride On Bomb, you can press and hold the Z-button on the Zwift Play controllers, or in the Zwift Companion map view, you can tap the white circle surrounding your orange arrow icon on the map.

  • Fixed an issue that could potentially award The Big Ring route badge after completing a different route.
  • Reverted recent Apple Watch updates to address connectivity issues.
  • Fixed an issue that could cause some rocks to flicker in Watopia.
